Is Azealia Banks Performing At Kanye West’s Fashion Show Today?

If you ever had any doubt as to how hard Kanye West is trying to make this whole fashion thing happen, let it be known that he has not only hired Jourdan Dunn to walk in today’s show, but appears to have big plans for Azealia Banks to perform.

West bowed his first collection last season to almost universal derision, then doubled down on his commitment to fashion in an epic Twitter rant that spanned three hours and hundreds of tweets.

Here’s what we know so far about West’s plans: the show is scheduled for 9:30 p.m. Paris time or 3:30 p.m. EST and will be held at the Halle Freyssinet in the 13th arrondissement. Dunn and Leomie Anderson are both walking — though not without difficulty, as the pair have been tweeting back and forth about the height and walkability (or lack thereof) of Kanye’s shoes.

And just over an hour ago, fashion musical flavor of the moment (and all around badass) Banks tweeted, “Sound Check at Kanye West Runway Show !!!!” along with a photo of the runway. She also tweeted that she’ll be performing in Fendi, and that she wonders if Jay-Z will be in attendance.

None of this speaks to the clothing, or whether West has learned from last season’s mistakes, but it does tell us that we’re in for quite the show.
