Karl Lagerfeld Shoots Kanye West’s Money Mouth

Mar 3, 2011 By Amy

The fast talking, occasionally controversial and always stylish, Kanye West takes to the cover of V Man to literally put his money where his mouth is. The artist posed for the magazine’s spring issue in the perfectly titled, “No Risk, No Reward” editorial. Kanye rocked a black Lanvin jacked, Balenciaga pants, and a white Dior Homme tee pulled by stylist, Jacob K.

I’m honestly kind of bored with his play-it-safe black suit look, but what really grabbed my attention was that this cover look was shot by Karl Lagerfeld! Seems kind of random right? Lagerfeld, who has shot for V in the past, always finds ways for us to expect the unexpected from him. I definitely wouldn’t have put Kanye & Lagerfeld together, but the rapper’s love for fashion and the photographer’s creative mind merge together well in this shoot. I really love the contrast between the light outline around Kanye and the darkness of the clothes and background.
