Yeezy Season 3: Where to begin? The staging, the Kardashian-filled front row, the debut of The Life of Pablo, the evolution of West’s signature body stockings—the list goes on. But in the midst of the spectacle, West—and his casting director, Angus Munro—managed to present a compelling message about runway diversity, featuring a lineup of models in a multitude of races, ages, and backgrounds.
Freshly scouted new faces, hip-hop peers like Young Thug, and It models Amilna Estevão and Mari Agory shared the stage with a serious joint supermodel cameo, courtesy of a scene-stealing Naomi Campbell, Veronica Webb, Alek Wek, and Liya Kebede, each of whom proved they could still rock a luxurious fur and black unitard with the best of them. Considering that West has name-checked Webb in his lyrics, regularly hangs out with Campbell, and has his fashion icon knowledge on lock, we really shouldn’t have expected anything less.
