Kim Kardashian West is back in Paris for the first time since her traumatizing 2016 robbery there … and it's obvious it's still fresh in her mind.
Kim and Kanye were surrounded by their muscle — and some fans and paps, of course — on their way to the Louis Vuitton Menswear Spring/Summer show. It's Paris Fashion Week, so it's clear why Kim's there … but still hanging over her is the petrifying heist.
TMZ broke the story … Kim feared rape when masked men stormed into her 2-story apartment in October 2016 and zip tied her hands with plastic handcuffs. The masked men also made off with more than $10 million in jewelry. Kim vowed to tone it down … and she's done that ever since. Notice she's not wearing jewelry.
BTW … it's a huge moment for Kanye too, who broke down in tears meeting up with a longtime friend, Virgil Abloh — Louis Vuitton's new artistic director of menswear. They go way back, and Virgil even worked with Kanye before taking on his most prominent role yet … becoming the first black artistic director in the company's 164-year history.
