And yes, it was an even bigger disaster than Kylie Jenner’s bleached mop, which makes her look like KimBot 2.0.
Don’t ever try out to be a model in one of Kanye West’s fashion shows. You’ve probably made that mental note already, but make it again. Because you do not want Kim Kartrashian’s rubber alien mask face to be the last thing you see before you die of heatstroke. Kanye’s Yeezy season 4 show was held on Roosevelt Island in NYC today, and just like last season’s show, he had a bunch of models standing around for a long time. But since they were outside for hours and it was over 85 degrees in NYC today, some couldn’t take the heat and did what Pimp Mama Kris does when one of her hos jokes about hating fame: they passed out.
The New York Post says that fashion editors and guests were bussed in and the show was supposed to start at 3pm, but it started 2 hours late. Some fashion editors left. When the show was about to begin, a bunch of “multicultural models“ took their place on the lawn and stood there while wearing basic ass leotards that looked like they were from Dollar Tree’s knock-off line of Spanx. The models stood under the sun for so long that some fainted and others had to sit. Poor models. Not only did they have to deal with the heat, but they also had to inhale the toxic plastic fumes wafting off of the Kartrashians as those tricks melted.

Shit became a really pretentious game of Survivor as more models hit the grass:

Kanye’s minions did nothing at first, and the audience had to give the baking models water. But eventually water was passed out to the models and when the runway show eventually started, the messiness continued. Some of the shoes were so busted and/or small that the models couldn’t walk in them. This model tried, but ended up looking like a bow-legged ostrich with broken ankles who has to shit really bad and is going the wrong way on a moving walkway:

One kind soul couldn’t take the pain of seeing that model go through it so he helped her out. It looks like he’s helping a drunk elderly alien cross the street:

And model Amina Blue, who is also Tyga’s ex, finally realized that risking a broken ankle for that trash fashion show wasn’t worth it, so she kicked her shoes off:

So there you go: models fainted, others couldn’t walk and Kanye once again proved that his ~fashuns~ make Ed Hardy look like Chanel couture. And if you asked Kanye to pull his head out of his asshole to tell you his feelings about how his show went, he’d probably say that it’s going to go down as the most important fashion event in history. The models weren’t fainting from the heat, they were fainting because they were overwhelmed about being a part of greatness!
