Kanye West gave a reflective speech at The Daily Front Row’s Fashion LA Awards on Thursday night. The event, held at the Sunset Tower Hotel, drew a handful of celebrities such as Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Drew Barrymore and Rihanna.

According to E!, West was on hand to present an award to Milk Studios founder Mazdack Rassi.

During West’s speech at the Fashion LA Awards, he spoke about how photographers are always asking him whey he doesn’t smile much.

“Back when I was working on Yeezus, I saw this book from the 1800s and it was velvet-covered with brass and everything. I looked at all these people’s photos and they look so real and their outfits were incredible and they weren’t smiling and people, you know the paparazzi, always come up to me, ‘Why you not smiling?’ and I think, not smiling makes me smile…When you see paintings in an old castle, people are not smiling cause it just wouldn’t look as cool.”

Kim Kardashian’s husband then went on to share that he thinks fashion is God’s work.

West said, “In my opinion, God is the No. 1 creator, and anytime we create, we’re an extension of doing his work on earth. That’s why we’re here. What can we do for humanity? And you know, in a way, fashion is what defines the time.”

He also proclaimed everybody is a “fashion insider” because “it’s illegal to be naked.”

He continued, “Everyone has some form of fashion every single day. We have the power to change the world. I believe that through design, because design is the closest to truth, problem solving truth is the closest to love, and love is the closest thing to God, and God is love.”

West definitely entertained at the Fashion LA Awards. He even smiled at the end of his eight-minute speech.

He stated, “I don’t know if I even made one f–king good point.”

Besides West and his unique speech at the LA Fashion Awards, there were plenty of awards to be given out. Honorees included Jeremy Scott for Womenswear Designer of the Year, Italo Zucchelli of Calvin Klein for Menswear Designer of Year and Christian Louboutin for Shoe Designer of the Year.
