Forget the catwalk, all eyes were on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West as the couple swept into Paris Fashion Week on Saturday in a blaze of beige. Wearing a camel coat that complemented her honey highlights - and Kanye's boots - new mum Kim showed off a slimmed down figure and polished post-pregnancy look, as she and her man spent the afternoon with Carine Roitfeld and Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy HQ before FROWing at the show last night.
But why did the king and kueen of matchy matchy style choose to make their first fashion outing since the birth of baby North in June in the French capital? It's not the first time that they’ve attended the Paris shows together, but Kim particularly has kept a relatively (in Kardashian terms) low profile since little Nori's arrival, which suggests that the Kimye juggernaut is about to go into overdrive once more as the pair continue to conquer the fashion world.
Here's what the stylish spotlight stealers might have been plotting in Paris...
1. Finding Kim a wedding dress
With an inevitable Kimye wedding on the horizon, perhaps the couple hit up the French fashion houses to discuss ideas for the all-important dress. We all know how much power Kanye wields over Kim's wardrobe so we doubt that the Keeping Up With The Kardashian's star would be able to keep the design a secret from the rapper before their Big Day. For her last nuptials Kim wore three custom-made Vera Wang gowns so expectations are high.
2. Reviving Kanye's fashion label
Could the wannabe designer who claims to have invented the leather jogging be set to show at Paris Fashion Week again? After his first two collections weren't met with much support from the fash pack, Kanye got a boost by overwhelming sales for his APC collaboration earlier this year - a very concise seven pieces: hoodie, jeans, t-shirt etc. Then there were rumours that he was working on a unisex collection, which got us dreaming about a potential Kimye kampaign. As well as their reunion with Tisci and Roitfeld on Saturday the couple found the time to hop across to London on the Eurostar for further business meetings. Sounds like Kanye definately has something in the pipeline.

3. Working on Kim's post-pregnancy look
Earlier this month at New York Fashion Week Carine Roitfeld told Grazia, "Kanye is a tough partner in fashion so I'm sure he's helped her [become a style icon]. I'm sure he's very aware of what they're both wearing." True story! Since dating Kanye, Kim's style has become a heck of a lot more fashiony and their continued efforts to coordinate their looks would suggest that the rapper is using his eye for detail to transform Kim from reality star to fashionista. A source told Radaronline.com: "Kanye has set up multiple meetings with Chanel, Celine and Givenchy to design a new post pregnancy wardrobe for Kim. He thinks this is a prime opportunity for her to re-vamp her image."
4. Spending quality time together
What with Nori's birth and Kim's outrageously large family, we doubt that the new parents have had more than five minutes of 'alone time' in the last few months. Surely a romantic trip to the city of luuurve is just what they need.
5. Getting back at Hedi Slimane
In his recent rant to BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe Kanye told the presenter about his track I Am God: "This song was made after Hedi Slimane didn't let me into his first Saint Laurent show. He wanted me to go but he told me I couldn't go to other shows. I was like wait a second you aren't telling editors they can't go to other shows. I'm not your boy, you can control me in some way. So I went into the studio with the producers that made the music for his show. That was my reaction." The next stop in Kanye's revenge? Attending as many shows as he can fit into his busy schedule and proving, "Rap is the new rock and roll. We the biggest rock stars, and I'm the biggest of all of them."
