Yeezy Season 4: Kylie Jenner Defends Models After Their Shoes Break at Kanye West's NYC Fashion Show

By
Some of the models had a tough time at Yeezy Season 4.
Kanye West's fashion show fell on a hot and sunny Wednesday on Roosevelt Island's Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park in NYC, where, despite the artistic presentation and killer fashions, heat and footwear problems put a damper on some of the participants' catwalk experience.

During the show, Kendall Jenner noticed a runway model's heel break, and immediately alerted her sister, Kim Kardashian West, and the two watched on with Kylie Jenner worried about the model.
Eventually, Kim called for help, saying, "Someone needs to do something. Someone needs to go help her," before someone stepped in to help the model off the stage.
After the incident, Kylie defended the model on Twitter, writing, "Her heel broke. It's not her fault."
Meanwhile, Tyga's former flame, Amina Blue, also struggled to make it down the runway, and could be seen taking off her heels midway through her walk.
And while some succumbed to the shoe struggles, for others, it was the hot, hot sun!
Several photos were shared of models on the ground during the show. Performers were told to sit down if they got tired, and were given water if the above-90 degree weather got to be too much.
“It was very hot,” Paper Magazine editorial director Michael Boardman told ET after the show. “Some of the models had to stand there .. they are real troopers. Some had to be given water, and I'm glad that they were.”
Still, Boardman said that the event was quite the spectacle.
“It's a beautiful occasion. I'm a big Yeezy fan,” he said. “The thing is, he's an artist. So it's kind of hard to approach it from a fashion perspective … You have to appreciate it as a happening and an experience.”
Despite the issues, the models pretty much crushed it during the outdoor show, and when Kanye showed up, he was not reluctant to let out a few smiles.
Kanye again teamed up with collaborator Vanessa Beecrof for the show, which included Teyana Taylor and Justin Bieber's recent flame Sofia Richie on the catwalk, and featured attendees such as Anna Wintour...
