There are some things you just don’t do when in the city of lights for fashion week — like show up late to events and keep people waiting.
It’s become so bad that industry insiders have dubbed the duo the “fashion flu,” according to The New York Post‘s Page Six.
It is just a little bit embarrassing. This week alone, the rapper and his reality-star wife are making very negative headlines in the media for bringing their one-year-old child North to a Balenciaga show, holding up Lanvin’s show for 40 minutes, getting punked outside Balmain’s show by Ukranian personality, Vitalii Sediuk, and even for their own fashion faux pas by showing up to a show with a little too much collective cleavage.

Apparently, after the pair showed up late to Lanvin’s show — where Kim wore a skirt so short she had to cover her crotch with her hand to prevent exposure — they were booed by photographers.
“People are so mad about Kimye being here,” said a fashion insider, adding that people are just “fatigued with the whole family.”

According to reports, an insider was overheard Thursday in Paris complaining that Kimye have been a fashion headache. Another retorted, “No, you mean a fashion [chronic fatigue].”
“They hold up shows and they draw paparazzi wherever they go,” a source told Page Six. “They’re seen here as the ultimate try-hards. It was funny when they were a novelty.”
On the other hand, their daughter, North, has received a lot of love in the press and has been dubbed “Lil’ Kimye” on the fashion circuit.
