Kanye West Tweets Excitement for John Galliano’s Gig at Maison Martin Margiela, Plus See Kim Kardashian’s Best Margiela Looks

Yeezy sends his congrats! 

Kanye West doesn’t tweet much, but the fashion enthusiast wasted no time hopping on the social network to give praise to John Galliano for his return to fashion as creative director of Maison Martin Margiela on Monday, Oct. 6. 

Galliano, 53, was shunned from the industry after being found guilty of making anti-Semitic comments in a Parisian café in 2011. The shocking comments heard around the world led to his eventual ousting as creative director at Christian Dior. The embattled designer has made few appearances since the incident, but recently promised to make a slow return to fashion. 

Just as the news hit WWD, West, 37, tweeted about the “exciting” changes in the fashion world, hinting that he heard about it during his recent trip to Paris Fashion Week. 

West appears enthusiastic for the reinvigoration of a go-to brand behind many of wife Kim Kardashian’s slimming body suits — more often paired with a sharp tuxedo jacket or tucked tightly into a body-conscious pencil skirt.

Kardashian has worn Margiela on numerous high-profile occasions, but the most praised look of note is the white Maison Martin Margiela tuxedo dress, featuring winged sleeves, she wore during the couple’s whirlwind wedding weekend in May. It was a statement-making first glimpse at the bride and how she might look in all white on her wedding day.

After watching her younger sister Kendall Jenner walk in the Balmain show during Paris Fashion Week on Sept. 25, Kardashian celebrated at the afterparty in a nude Margiela body suit topped off with a soft pink blazer covered in sparkling sequins.

On Sept. 27, Kardashian went the way of Margiela again. The reality star wore a tight-fitted Margiela body suit in a tan-nude monochromatic look in Paris. She accessorized the sexy ensemble with soft grey suede knee-boots.
