Kanye West Stars in New Balmain Campaign

Kanye West is to star in the Fall 2016 Balmain campaign.

Designer Olivier Rousteing handpicked West to star alongside model Joan Smalls.

A black and white photograph from the shoot has surfaced online, showing the pair in what appears to be some sort of battle.


Designer Rousteing, who became creative director of the fashion house in 2011, regularly uses high profile celebrities to front campaigns.

Past stars to model for the brand include Kendall Jenner, Jourdan Dunn, Gigi Hadid, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell.

Olivier took to Instagram earlier on today (July 24th) to announce the ‘Balmain Army’ was back.

“ARE U READY? BALMAIN ARMY IS BACK #shotbyklein @stevenkleinstudio @pascaldangin @balmain

This is not the first time Kanye has teamed up with Olivier and Balmain.

Back in 2014, Yeezus and his wife Kim Kardashian modelled for the ‘Army Of Lovers’ Spring/Summer 2015 menswear ad campaign.
