Front Row at Balenciaga

Rain greeted guests including Rila Fukushima and Kanye West.

AMAZING GRAYS: A cold rain pelted guests arriving at the Balenciaga show Thursday morning, but the gray weather didn’t dampen the mood of Alice Glass. “It’s good luck,” she offered cheerily.

The lead vocalist of Canadian act Crystal Castles had her lips painted black. “It’s Lime Crime,” Glass said, answering a quizzical expression about the makeup brand by explaining, “It’s an online thing.”

Japanese actress Rila Fukushima said she was in town for a photo shoot, but clammed up when pressed for details. The “Wolverine” actress is currently donning kimonos for her role as a servant in “Gunshi Kanbei,” a dramatic series about a samurai in 16th-century Japan.

Chinese actress Liu Shishiand Kanye West also took in the show.
