The headlines are all about Kanye's new hair (bleached blonde, doesn't suit him) and Kim's odd purple ensemble, but the coolest story to come out of Yeezy's NY fashion week show last night is the one about diversity and a hot new modelling name to know: Halima Aden.
The pop star tweeted her question to Kanye, linking to a YouTube video that contained harrowing scenes of rabbits being slaughtered for their coats. "This is the reality of fur for fashion - it's so sad", Sia typed on Wednesday afternoon.
Aden will be featured in an high-fashion editorial in the magazine's tenth issue, set to release in March.

According to published reports, Yeezy steered away from his usual show itinerary and did not premiere any new music of his own at the show, instead he soundtracked the with The-Dream singing J.
Sia appeared on Kanye's most recent album The Life Of Pablo, singing on the song Wolves.
"I just wanted to support Yeezy, Kanye and Addidas, so I made a decision to come out for him", she said. "We need to reflect in fashion who we are as a human race".
Aden, 19, made her runway debut in front of Kim Kardashian and Vogue's Anna Wintour sitting in the front row, though West himself didn't emerge to greet the crowd during the presentation's conclusion. West, new to diplomacy, worked with the Council of Fashion Designers of America to secure this time slot after Steven Kolb criticized his crashing the carefully planned New York Fashion Week schedule unannounced.
Other big-name guests at Kanye's show included his wife Kim Kardashian West, as well as Tyga, Hailey Baldwin and Zoe Kravitz. The latter is believed to be the name of West's upcoming joint album with Drake.
