Alas, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian-West are officially recognized as icons.
Harper’s Bazaar celebrated “ICONS by Carine Roitfeld“, Friday, September 9, at the Plaza Hotel in New York City and Mr and Mrs West were the stars of the night.
Roitfeld is the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris and global fashion director of Harper’s Bazaar.
Kanye was recognized because of how well he dominated the Yeezy Season 4 fashion show which held at Roosevelt Island, Wednesday, September 7, despite negative remarks.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Recognized For Their Risk Taking Attitudes
Josh Duboff for vanityfair.com said that the annual icons event was a means for Carine and Harper’s to define and celebrate an “icon”.
One supermodel defined an icon as “someone who takes risks,” while Tyson Beckford said an icon was “someone respected and world-renowned.”
If these two definitions were personalities, it would fit Kanye and Kim perfectly as the couple usually take fashion and lifestyle risks yet they always manage to earn people’s respect afterwards.
Guests at the Icons party included, Jonathan Cheban, Corey Gamble, Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall, Kylie and Tyga.
Emily Ratajkowski, Kate Upton, Hailey Baldwin, Jasmine Sanders, Devon Windsor, Jason Wu, Jeremy Scott, and Pamela Anderson also graced the event.
Alyssa Vingan for fashionista.com said Icons by Corine 2015 had Roar singer, Katy Perry as guest.
