Kanye West was a busy man at the Grammys last night. Between almost rushing the stage when Beck beat Beyoncé for Album of the Year and performing twice, Kanye was the most talked about man of the night. After the show, he talked to E! about the Beyoncé snub, what he wore to the award show, and styling Kim Kardashian

When asked who he was wearing, Kanye said "Balmain, young designer, Olivier [Rousteing]. First black designer of a French fashion house." He also said he was rocking a piece by Greg Lauren, which he said was "more young vibes." Kanye has a strong history of rocking Balmain, and even front a campaign with Kim for the fashion house. Greg is the nephew of fashion giant Ralph Lauren and a designer in his own right. Greg launched his eponymous label in 2011 and is known for his hand-sewn items with a distressed and vintage look. 

As for what Kim wore—a Jean Paul Gaultier and told couture dress—the reality star told E!, "[Kanye] saw this online at a couture show and sent me the picture and said, 'Babe do you like this dress?' He called the designer, gets it and it’s sitting my dressing room. I’m the luckiest woman alive." Kanye also stepped in on the day of the event to fix a wardrobe malfunction. "Basically, my pocket fell off — the whole pocket fell off," she said, "When I sat it ripped and we were sewing and safety-pinning."

The Grammys also gave us a first look at a sweatsuit from Kanye's new clothing line to be unveiled this weekend with adidas, at least according to Theophilus London. Ye also rocked his new Yeezy Boost 750, which adidas confirmed is dropping during NBA All-Star Weekend, during his performance of "Only One."
