Taylor Swift Wears Kanye West in 'Harper's Bazaar' Australia.

When Kanye West showed his debut collection at Paris Fashion Week last fall, critics were largely unimpressed, with many noting how terribly the ridiculously expensive pieces fit the models.

But West's work appears suitable enough for Harper's Bazaar Australia, which clothed country-pop singer Taylor Swift in a West shirt for her recent cover story. Sure, the top is mostly obscured by a gorgeous (if slightly rug-like) Masion Martin Margiela wrap. But it's hard not to read the garment as Swift's gesture of support for the man who very publicly humiliated her at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards by jumping onstage and proclaiming Beyoncé Knowles' superiority. Swift is shoving the incident under the sequined rug, if you will.

It should be noted that the shoot was styled by Harper's Bazaar Australia editor Christine Centenera, who consulted with Kanye on his spring 2012 collection. It's entirely possible that Taylor had no clue whose threads she was wearing.

In other Kanye West news, a pair of Star Wars-ian beaded sandals from his collaboration with Giuseppe Zanotti have been marked down to around $6,000 at Paris boutique Colette.
