Kanye West is all smiles with it comes to the booty. For fashion's sake.

The rapper and fashion designer unveiled his Yeezy season 2 collection for Adidas at a fashion show during New York Fashion Week spring 2016 at the Skylight Modern in New York City on Wednesday.

The presentation featured a slew of mostly female models, including Kardashian's sister Kylie Jenner and friend and model Bella Hadid wearing tan and nude bodysuits, cat suits, dresses, crop tops, jackets and other clothes.

"You have this young, blonde girl who's wearing a tank top who has a huge booty, a huge booty, and it's a very important part of beauty. The booty is beautiful," Vogue Contributing Editor and former U.S. Editor-in-Large André Leon Talley says, chuckling, in a video posted on Vogue's website.

"Yeah," Kanye replied, grinning.

"Why are you smiling?" Talley asked.

"Because I like form," Kanye replied. "I like shape."

Kanye's pregnant wife Kim Kardashian, who is expecting a baby boy, and daughter North West, 2, sat in the front row with Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour and Late Night host Seth Meyers.

Also in the crowd were Kim and Kylie's sisters Kendall JennerKourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, plus Michael Strahan, Riccardo Tisci, CommonLorde andJaden Smith.

Absent from the show was New York Fashion Week creator Fern Mallis, who had told The New York Post in February, after his NYFW debut, that she was "kind of over Kanye."

"I was hoping to go to his show actually to see it," she told The New York Post's Page Six in comments published on Wednesday. "I was told they didn't want me there."

Kanye has not commented. After she made her remarks about him in February, the rapper had responded to her on Twitter.

"To Fern Mallis: I just want you to understand that attempting to do clothing has been very difficult...because I was too famous by the time I realized I wanted to design," he tweeted at the time. "I have millions of ideas and I represent a new generation just trying to express themselves in a broken world. If you wanna have a drink with me, book a table at the spotted pig when I'm back in NY."
