When Kanye West reportedly remarried back in January 2023, just two months after his divorce from Kim Kardashian was finalised, we were eager to know who had become the next Mrs West. There was never any doubt her sartorial agenda would be noteworthy considering Ye's history of dating women with impeccable style, and Bianca Censori certainly fits the bill.

Ever since being catapulted into the spotlight thanks to her global superstar husband, Bianca has proven her commitment to a fashion-forward style agenda at all times.

Recently, however, the 29-year-old has taken her daring style agenda to new heights during Fashion Month AW24.

After wearing nothing but a close-cut bodysuit to the Marni show during Milan Fashion Week, she took the 'no trousers' trend literally and made headlines after stepping out for dinner with Ye during Paris Fashion Week. In images obtained by Page Six, Bianca is seen wearing an oversized fluffy coat, with literally nothing but sheer tights on her lower half and exposing her intimate areas - a look which may have broken the law. 

In Article 222-32 of the French Criminal code, it is stated that 'exposure of intimate portions of one's body in plain view in a space that is accessible to the public' is considered a crime. This means Bianca could face one year in prison and a fine of €15,000 (£12,834).

From her dramatic blonde pixie cut to her daring outfit choices, there is never a dull fashion and beauty moment where the Australian architectural designer is concerned.

So, who is Bianca and how did she come to be Kanye West’s ‘wife’? Here’s everything we know so far.

Who is Bianca Censori?

Bianca Censori is an architectural designer at Kanye's brand Yeezy, she joined the company in November 2020.

She’s thought to be almost 20 years Ye’s junior - she appeared in an article for iD in 2016 with her age stated as 21 (born circa 1995). West was born in 1977.

Censori started a jewellery company called Nylons after high school, and carried on the business during her studies at the University of Melbourne.

What does she do for a living?

Bianca earned both her Bachelor's and her Master's degrees from the University of Melbourne in the subject of Architecture, the latter of which she completed 2020. 

 According to her LinkedIn profile, she has previously worked as a design consultant, a student architect and then of course she went on to become Head Architect at Kanye's label Yeezy.

 In a no-longer-available 2021 interview with Hypebeast, Bianca opened up about growing up in Australia and why she was drawn to architecture. 

 "I was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia," she said. "As a child I was consistently drawn to creative endeavours, mostly artistic. I always wanted to be a sculptor and to me, architecture is the union of art and pragmatics. It is the grandest artistic gesture that we can place onto the earth. I was drawn to it, purely, as a shift in artistic scale."

 "As a child, I spent a lot of time with my aunt who would consistently expose me to an array of art, film, and architecture," she continued, detailing her work's raison d'être. "She really drove my love for design and instilled in me an eye for aesthetics that I was able to nurture into adulthood."

The most important thing we know about Mrs West is that she's unafraid to make drastic decisions when it comes to her fashion and beauty choices, which we love here at Hello! Fashion. She previously had shoulder length brunette tresses, but when she was first witnessed having lunch with Ye, she donned the most dramatic, bright blonde pixie cut.

Admirable, drastic, stylish.

When did the couple marry?

The pair reportedly got married in a private ceremony in Los Angeles, though TMZ said at the time: "Our sources say Ye and Bianca recently had some sort of wedding ceremony -- though we're told it doesn't appear they've filed a marriage certificate to make it legal."

However, Ye has worn a wedding ring from the beginning, to symbolise his commitment. The report continues: "Still, he's treating her like wifey ... Ye was wearing a wedding ring this week when he and Bianca arrived at the Waldorf Astoria in Bev Hills -- and we're told the ring symbolizes his commitment to her following the ceremony."

How did the pair meet?

It’s unknown when the two first met, but considering Bianca Joined Yeezy in November 2020, it’s speculated that they met at some point after that.

Who did Kanye West date before Bianca?

Kanye settled his divorce with Kim Kardashian - who he was married to for seven years - in November 2022. At the beginning of January last that year he briefly dated Uncut Gems actress Julia Fox, who said in an interview with the Evening Standard that she "tapped out at the first sign of a red flag". Most recently the Stronger singer dated Brazillian model Juliana Nalú.
