The pair, who this year mark the three year anniversary since their lavish marriage in Florence, Italy, are in NY for the launch of West's Season 5 Yeezy collection.

Unfortunately, a Yeezy x Drake collab did not come to fruition, but the Yeezy Season 5 show was still worth talking about.

Unlike last fall's trek to Roosevelt Island, or last spring's concert at Madison Square Garden, Kanye West is keeping things simple for Yeezy Season 5.

"I just wanted to support Yeezy, Kanye and Addidas, so I chose to come out for him", she said.

The much more pared-down show lasted a mere 13-minutes and was starkly different from his Yeezy Season 4 extravaganza.

The chunky running style sneakers Kanye West has been wearing recently were part of the show.

The 36-year-old TV personality was joined at the show by younger sister Kylie Jenner and boyfriend Tyga, Hailey Baldwin, Lala Anthony, Anna Wintour, and Teyana Taylor. Rather than opening with the traditional runway walk, the models were first projected onto a giant screen, which is a MARKED IMPROVEMENT upon past Vanessa Beecroft skintone organizational charts.

Accompanied by wife Kim Kardashian West - who was dressed in a wine-red coat, top and trousers - the rapper's show was pitch black at the start, with views of the crowd obstructed by his giant video projection "box" at the center.

From there, she caught the eye of one of the most influential modeling agents in the world, IMG president Ivan Bart. He also introduced a new, bulky sneaker shape dubbed, the runner. I can't wait for you guys to see!
