It is Ralph though… It was a major moment for Kanye West when he met his idol Ralph Lauren during the designer’s Fall 2015 show at New York Fashion Week on Thursday.
Lauren’s son, David Lauren, snapped a priceless photo of the rap god meeting the iconic designer backstage. Yeezy was grinning from ear-to-ear as Ralph reached out to touch his face.

Kanye’s love for Ralph Lauren is no secret. “Ralph is the god. And that’s all I want to say about Ralph,” he told Style.com in an interview this week.
In a 2013 interview with Sway Calloway, Kanye blurted out the now infamous line: “It ain’t Ralph, though!”
When asked about Kanye’s complimentary catchphrase, Lauren told Style.com: “That’s very cool. Well, that’s great. If I were to cater to Kanye, he would know that I’m catering to him. The fact that I make what I make—he gets it. He gets the quality and he respects it. And I think that’s the key, why I work all the time is to do that. That’s the fun.”
