Kanye and Courtney Rock the Givenchy Show
Ever wondered what celebs chit chat about as they sit on the front row looking oh so pretty? We certainly did when we spotted Kanye West with his fiance Alexis Phifer looking cozy at the Givenchy show with Courtney Love and celeb-fave Mario Testino — what a mix! And it was the rapper holding the camera, snapping away at the gothic but glamorous outfits, including baggy Aladdin style pants with draping detail, leather jumpsuits and gladiator style knee high sandals. After the show, West gave PEOPLE his verdict: “We loved it,” he said with a smile turning to his fiance, “That was my girl’s favorite show so far.” The couple who have been spotted at several shows this week in Paris, even managed to color co-ordinate with the rapper in a grey t-shirt and maroon scarf while Alexis rocked a grey dress, silver, sparkly tights and studded ankle boots. A big fan of Givenchy, the future Mrs. West told PEOPLE her favorite element: “I loved the feminine with the hard and the whole gladiator thing.”

Courtney Love was spotted tapping her heel to the church choir, spooky music and pointing at her favorite items as they came down the runway. Later backstage she told PEOPLE why she loves Givenchy designer and pal, Riccardo Tisci: “I just click with the aesthetics. Between Marc Jacobs, Ric Owens and Riccardo, for my day job, they are the only people I would wear,” she said. After a private tete-a-tete with the designer, the singer left in a flurry of animal print, Givenchy couture, of course.Tell us: Would you wear Courtney’s leopard print outfit?
