On Sunday night, Kanye West surprised his fans by returning to Instagram with a post photo from Balenciaga's Winter 2023 fashion show in Paris. The photo shows a slim model wearing a gray outfit and red glasses, and Kanye asked his followers to provide a caption for the image.
The brand had shared the same image on their Instagram page earlier that day, with a caption describing the outfit worn by the model. Despite his return to Instagram, Kanye remains suspended from Twitter.
Fans and celebrities alike commented on the post, with YG expressing his excitement for Kanye's return and Stefflon Don suggesting a humorous caption for the image.
It is true that Balenciaga cut ties with Kanye West last year due to his erratic and offensive behavior, which included making antisemitic remarks and praising Adolf Hitler. In October 2022, the fashion brand released a statement announcing that they no longer had any relationship with the artist and had no plans for future collaborations.
After a tumultuous period in the fall of 2022, Kanye West has mostly stayed out of the headlines in recent months. However, in February of this year, he had a heated confrontation with paparazzi where he demanded privacy for himself and his wife, Bianca Censori. He threatened to take pictures of the paparazzi's wives if they continued to take photos of his own.
Despite his controversial past and behavior, Kanye recently made a surprise return to Instagram and asked fans to caption a photo from Balenciaga's Winter 2023 fashion show in Paris featuring a model wearing a gray outfit and red glasses.
