It’s been a long time coming, but as of this morning in Paris, Frank Ocean has officially attended his first fashion show! *wild chorus of “AWWWWwwww”s* The real story here, though, is that the Grammy award-winning singer didn’t just make his sartorial society debut, he did it sitting front row at this Paris Fashion Week’s most anticipated show: Christian Dior. Never one for fashion theatrics, Frank kept his look simple with the crispest, most immaculate white button-up worn over slim but still loose trousers. His accessories were minimal, too, with a black leather band, rectangular face watch, one white earring in the shape of a wide chevron, and a pair of what appear to be trusty black and royal Jordan 1s.

Don’t expect Frank to one-and-done PFW, though. A man (and his insanely talented photographer/director/friend Nabil Elderkin) doesn’t fly to Paris for just one show (or maybe he does? IDK how life works after the recording industry gives you a standing-O on national TV). Frank has already been Instagramming from the front row of Maison Martin Margiela! And a quick check of his Twitter feed reveals that he’s in for a full “fashion weekend” in Paris. HMMmmm…*strokes beard in thought* What else will Frank be showing up or, better yet, PERFORMING for? Chanel, perhaps? We have no idea. One thing is for sure: you’ll know as soon as we do! *blows kiss, waves*
