Kanye West on the FROW
While Kanye West has been hobnobbing in Paris with his newly-blonde wife Kim, a genius new instagram account has popped up up parodying the rapper's sense of fashion. And it's pretty hilarious. Under the insta-handle @kanyeisfashion Kanye's head has been photoshopped onto a series of avant-garde looks.

Or there's this one. Love the Seventies palette you've got going on there, Kanye:
The captions are pretty bang-on too. "People know me as an innovator. I am the Nikola Tesla of fashion and music.

Or there's this little gem: "I say don't try to be above the influence. Because I am the influence."
Though as everyone knows, Kanye tends to be better at his own 'spoof' Kanye-isms than anyone else: "I'm doing pretty good as far as geniuses go" he once said, "I'm like a machine. I'm a robot. You cannot offend a robot. I'm going down as a legend, whether or not you like me or not. I am the new Jim Morrison. I am the new Kurt Cobain. The Bible had 20, 30, 40, 50 characters in it. You don't think that I would be one of the characters of today's modern Bible?"
Appropriately the real Kanye and Kim Kardashian-West have just hit Paris for their now regular round of Paris Fashion Week shows.
Yesterday, when Kim stepped out of their hotel in her new blonde hair-do, fake instagram 'Kanye' reacted by posting this billboard shot of himself:
We wonder if and when Kanye sees this account we'll see one of those rare smiles? Um, we wouldn't count on it.
But you know what, he does seem to be in an OK mood:
