Katy Perry and Kanye West are rumored to be dating following their public appearances during Paris Fashion Week, where sources say the pair appeared to be more than friends at one particular show.
"Katy hung around [at the fashion show] until everyone left. Then she hopped into Kanye's Mercedes- and went to the afterparty," an eyewitness told MediaTakeOut.
"Katy and Kanye were near each other all night, not all over each other, just close like they were trying to hide it … And after about an hour, they both inconspicuously left together," the source added.
Perry, 27, recently signed her final divorce papers after ending her marriage to British comedian, Russell Brand, and critics fear that the "devastated" singer may be trying to establish a new relationship to deal with her hurt from the divorce.
"[Katy] was brought up with the belief marriage is forever and feels she failed. The plan was for Katy and Russell to have the holidays apart, then see if they wanted to go through with a separation," a source told Us Magazine.
Although West is often romantically linked to Kim Kardashian, who along with Perry had attended his runway show afterparty, onlookers claim that the "Love Lockdown" rapper and Perry appeared to be genuinely involved and almost inseparable.
West, a 34-year-old hip-hop mogul and fashion designer, was left red-faced after one fashion critic accused him of using similar looks to renowned fashion designer label Givenchy in his own collection.
"Kanye West collection was so Givenchy-esque that it's embarrassing that Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci was an expected guest. Ten points off for copying the smart guy sitting next to you," the Wall Street Journal's Christina Binkley wrote.
Others criticized West's repeated use of animal fur among other aspects of his show.
"When Joan Smalls closed the show, wearing an adhesive black gauze dress with a strip of alligator running up the front, it seemed as if Mr. West's approach to making a dress was like a cook wrapping leftover turkey," New York Times fashion writer Eric Wilson wrote.
