Ever wondered what celebs chit chat about as they sit on the front row looking oh so pretty? We certainly did when we spotted Kanye West with his fiance Alexis Phifer looking cozy at the Givenchy show with Courtney Love and celeb-fave Mario Testino — what a mix! And it was the rapper holding the camera, snapping away at the gothic but glamorous outfits, including baggy Aladdin style pants with draping detail, leather jumpsuits and gladiator style knee high sandals. After the show, West gave PEOPLE his verdict: “We loved it,” he said with a smile turning to his fiance, “That was my girl’s favorite show so far.” The couple who have been spotted at several shows this week in Paris, even managed to color co-ordinate with the rapper in a grey t-shirt and maroon scarf while Alexis rocked a grey dress, silver, sparkly tights and studded ankle boots. A big fan of Givenchy, the future Mrs. West told PEOPLE her favorite element: “I loved the feminine with the hard and the whole gladiator thing.”


Courtney Love was spotted tapping her heel to the church choir, spooky music and pointing at her favorite items as they came down the runway. Later backstage she told PEOPLE why she loves Givenchy designer and pal, Riccardo Tisci: “I just click with the aesthetics. Between Marc Jacobs, Ric Owens and Riccardo, for my day job, they are the only people I would wear,” she said. After a private tete-a-tete with the designer, the singer left in a flurry of animal print, Givenchy couture, of course.Tell us: Would you wear Courtney’s leopard print outfit? Did she pile on too much print?

She has got to be the scariest looking THING ever! yikes.

Alex on

Actually for once she looks great, but get a little sun and cut the hair

Ela on

Most of us couldn’t get away with wearing this outfit, but she’s a rocker chick, so it suits her style. I actually think she looks better here than in many of her past outfits.

Tru on

Whoa! Courtney’s outfit is a mess. I like leopard print things, but this is too much leopard print. The dress would be okay on its own. Wear a plain ivory jacket instead of the one she’s got on. Ditch the leopard boots and wear a subtle leopard print peep-toe pump, and please get rid of the black tights.

Jane on

Would I wear this? Sure, on halloween…I could be a caveman! Lol.

ainslie on

she looks FAB! Ela is right; most of us would look ridiculous in it but Courtney can pull it off. she’s eccentric and can wear interesting outfits. it’s boring only seeing run of the mill, “safe” starlets. fashion is meant to be fun and Courtney plays along with it.

poppy on

i love it! Courts a real polemic character- you either love her or for some abstract reason i cant figure out especialluy these days “hate” her- shes the last of the Great Rock Stars and i for one CANNOT WAIT for her record!!!!!!!!
Please pu tit out already-=
As for her style i think shes a genius- she takes risks noone else has the cajones to take and every photo ive seen of her in the last 2 weeks ( exceptthe scary contact lenses wich as a rockstar shes allowed to make mistakes shes not your average superstar shes a freak and she knows it and shes obviously beloved by alot of people!)_
shes looked FLAWLESS- heck yes id wear this if was tall thin and a maniacal genius, and a great songwriter with not too much to prove! LOVE IT !

Sonya on

Emily on
