YEEZY DOES IT: “I feel bad for the models” might be the most overheard phrase at Kanye West’s Yeezy 4 show, where about 100 models wearing flesh-tone undergarments stood in the sun on Roosevelt Island. The temperatures skyrocketed into the low 90s when the first model passed out. A second model fainted a few minutes later. Other models helped them as they fell. No one in the audience got up to assist them. Twenty minutes into the presentation, about 30 models sat down in the grass.
The mishaps occurred after the show started about an hour late, with West keeping fashion editors and industry executives waiting in the heat.
