One could argue that only a handful of moments truly cause a stir at Fashion Week. Whether a designer pulled an unexpected stunt on the runway or an audience member ignited a cacophony of whispers, attendees can often point to these poignant moments years or even decades down the line. Unfortunately, Fall 2015 Fashion Week's most memorable moments had absolutely nothing to do with style and everything to do with the media circus that is Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's life together.
According to Tumblr, both Kanye and his young daughter drew more attention than every other runway show combined due to their similarly questionable antics. Kanye West put on a subdued and ultimately uninspiring show for Adidas Originals, and his young daughter North West was reduced to sobs watching it. While any social media user will have his or her own definition of the term "newsworthy," North West nevertheless made headlines for being the unhappiest guest sitting front row at Fashion Week while her parents scrambled to make sure the nearby Anna Wintour wasn't disturbed. If you need any proof of the cry that was heard around the world, simply read on for the top 20 Tumblr posts of Fashion Week.
