After the tense moment, Censori attended the birthday party of her stylist,  Gadir Rajab, the following day without her husband.

At the party at the Italian restaurant Gigi Paris, the 29-year-old model experienced a small wardrobe malfunction while rocking a barely-there outfit made from cream tape.

As the Australian architect posed for photos with the birthday racy celebrant, her outfit began to come apart.

Inside the venue, Censori continued to command attention, cuddling up to Gadir, who was dressed casually in a Moroccan football shirt, for a series of snapshots.

Censori's daring outfit, crafted from tape, featured beige low-rise shorts extending to her knees. The shorts were paired with a single tape strand functioning as suspenders, which looped behind her neck and covered only her nipples.

This revealing outfit accentuated Censori's toned midriff and slender arms and legs. She completed her minimalist look with matching beige open-toe heels featuring clear plastic straps.

On Friday, young Parisians expressed concern over Censori's revealing outfit at Rajab's birthday party.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Sarra Sean, a 20-year-old linguist, said, "She's free to do what she wants with her own body, but it's a bit weird."

"I'm not that into celebrities, but there clearly has to be some concern if a famous person is acting strangely. Some of Kanye's political statements have been very worrying lately," she added.

San Zaya, an 18-year-old student, also noted that Censori and West have a responsibility to set a good example for young people.

Zaya said, "Kanye, in particular, is world-famous and an influential artist, so anything he does is copied everywhere."

She continued: "People can dress how they look, but if they are being forced to behave in a certain way for the cameras, then that can be very dangerous. These two are followed massively on social media. I like Kanye West's music, but I don't like some of the publicity that has surrounded him lately."

Bianca Censori's Family Concerned Over Kanye West's Influence Over Her

Censori's latest appearance in skimpy outfits comes amid growing concerns that she is being "controlled" by her husband and manipulated by him.

Insiders have revealed that Censori's family is worried West might be pushing her into the adult film industry to promote his new Yeezy Porn venture and exploit her to "promote sexual indecency."

An insider told Daily Mail, "Bianca's family was willing to give Kanye the benefit of the doubt after her mom's recent visit to LA. For Bianca's sake, they were willing to overlook his anti-Semitic remarks and inappropriate behavior."

The source added, "They were even trying to accept that he was not forcing Bianca to do anything. They knew about Kanye and Bianca's project to create and sell their own clothing brand. But with two feminist sisters and an equally feminist mother, it is hard to rationalize or accept her involvement in this new venture."
