Kanye West’s $16 Million Sneakers; Coco Rocha Wants More Diverse Models

And Stephanie Seymour poses for 'Harper's Bazaar' with her boys.

Kanye West’s $16 Million Sneakers: Even though Kanye West ended his shoe collaboration with Nike months ago, the brand still had one last design in reserve. Opting for a single tweet as promotion, Nike launched the solid red Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” sneakers on its website on Sunday. The shoes sold out within ten minutes and soon began appearing on eBay, with one pair going for $16.39 million. Adidas must be feeling pretty good about their new collaboration with the designer.

Coco Rocha Wants More Diverse Models: Weighing in on the ongoing issue of too-thin models, the face of Calvin Klein and Jean Paul Gaultier said she is tired of hearing them labeled as “plus-size” and wants more diversity within the industry. “Models are supposed to be a muse to you,” Rocha told Page Six. “Why is a muse always the same body type, the same look? It’s boring. It’s about time we’re mixing it up.” [Page Six]

Stephanie Seymour Poses With Her Boys: For the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar, the supermodel and her two fashion-loving sons star in their first mother-son editorial. The Brant boys have become quite the pair among the fashion crowd, which is no surprise considering Linda Evangelista and Naomi Campbell are their godmothers, John Galliano is a mentor, and Azzedine Alaia is their “Papa” in Paris.
