Artists who rock the runway

KANYE WEST (2011)

Usually a front-row regular at fashion shows, the US rapper and husband of Kim Kardashian took to the runway to debut his fashion line, DW Kanye West, at the Paris Fashion Week.

The ready-to-wear collection is a tribute to his late mother, Donda, who died in 2007 following complications from a cosmetic surgery.

The wildly-hyped show received mix reviews, with some critics dubbing it "painful" and mocking some ill-fitting pieces.

Daily Mail attacked his fashion sense, calling his view of women "dubious and out of date, given so much skin tight leather and bondage whips".

LADY GAGA (2009)

Her hit song, Bad Romance, made its debut at the Paris Fashion Week as models strutted the catwalk during Alexander McQueen's show.

Lady Gaga later wore the killer Armadillo heels from the collection in the music video for the song.

VICTORIA BECKHAM (2008)

The Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer debuted a collection of dresses at New York Fashion Week, surprising many with her impressive line.

GWEN STEFANI (2005)

The No Doubt frontwoman's first fashion line L.A.M.B made its runway debut during New York Fashion Week.

It saw guests like Anna Wintour, Lenny Kravitz, husband Gavin Rossdale, Kelly Osbourne and Stefani's proud, teary mother in attendance.
