The rap star-turned-designer's sophomore collection hasn't thus far earned rave reviews from the critics, but it apparently was an improvement over his debut. Eric Wilson of The New York Times, however, did report that he was kicked out of West's showroom earlier in the day when the star changed his mind about giving previews.

The front row at the show was apparently awash with celebrities, including Kim Kardashian, who sported a massive fur wrap and West's own heels, which cost nearly $6,000.

Other stars on the front row a the show included Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Cassie, Sean "Diddy" Combs and Azealia Banks. Also present, but not pictured, were Common, Rosario Dawson, Salma Hayek, and Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci.

It-model Karlie Kloss walked in West's runway show, as did other big-name catwalkers like Joan Smalls and Carmen Kass.

In terms of style, the collection looks from the photos to be a continuation of West's rather aggressive brand of luxury-fueled sex appeal, featuring lots of leather and towering stilettos.

Like his Spring 2012 collection, this one -- perhaps more appropriately -- had a lot of furry details, like these oversize fur sleeves. Most interestingly, the show's finale (and, apparently, the after-party) featured go-karts speeding around a track.
