Late Bloomer Kanye West?

Though tardy models were blamed for the delayed Thakoon show, the real reason for the hold-up was Kanye West.

Perhaps celebrities attending the spring collections this week should be given an etiquette handbook.

Rule number one: Do not show up 57 minutes late for a show. As fuming editors waited in their seats at the Thakoon show held at Eye Beam space in far West Chelsea, speculation circulated as to why the start time had been pushed back to unreasonable proportions. Though p.r.’s blamed tardy models, some contended the holdup was Kanye West.

When the rap artist finally arrived, he waltzed in and took his seat mere moments before the lights went down.
