Virgil Abloh debuted his very first collection as Louis Vuitton's new men's artistic director at Paris Fashion Week and what a show it was! Abloh, who's made history as the first black man in this role for the high fashion label, invited some of his famous friends to the event.

Surprisingly, Kid Cudi was one of the show's models. The rapper strutted his stuff down the runway as Kanye West's "I Thought About Killing You" blasted through the speakers, along with some of West and Cudi's "Feel the Love." Speaking of the Ye recording artist/designer, West was also front row for the show. 

Along with wife Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Travis Scott; it was a family affair. There were many other famous faces that we saw at the event. They included Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman, ASAP Rocky, Naomi Campbell, Rihanna and much more. Where was our invite?

There was one moment, however, that really tugged at our hearts. After the show wrapped up and Abloh was making his way down the runway, he and West hugged one another really tight and began crying. As many of us already know, prior to getting his position at Louis Vuitton, Abloh was West's longtime creative collaborator.

Take a look at some clips of Abloh's first Louis Vuitton Paris Fashion Week show below.
