Say what you like about Kanye West and his recent fashion endeavors, West and his wife, reality star Kim Kardashian, have been dominating the style spotlight of late. And since it's become apparent that nothing is enough to satisfy their insatiable thirst for attention (le sigh), it seems only natural that they'd pull out all the stops during fashion month. Kim Kardashian West kicked off Paris Fashion Week with brand-new platinum gold locks to rival Draco Malfoy's, and now Kanye will host surprise concerts at Fondation Louis Vuitton to close out the event.

Though Kim K coyly gave us hints via her Instagram account on Friday, Fondation Louis Vuitton officially announced the exclusive gigs, which will be held March 7 through 10. The performances will be accompanied by a Steve McQueen–directed film. Tickets are on sale on the Fondation website for about $108 (the equivalent of 100 euros) and proceeds will go to an as-yet-unnamed charity. 

I guess this means West is officially over the war he had (hilariously) waged on Louis Vuitton a couple years ago after traumatically being snubbed from a meeting with the label's head and subsequently declaring the brand's inability to fully realize his power. Oh, Kanye. Well, considering the "go big or go home" motto the artist, who has been trying to make a name for himself in the fashion world, seems to live by, the concert series is sure to be worth looking checking out. If only I had a ticket to Paris Fashion Week!
