Seven-time World Champion Lewis Hamilton was not allowed entry into the Paris Fashion Show along with a famous American singer.

Hamilton is one of the greatest F1 drivers of all time. He has won seven World Titles and is the driver with the most number of race wins, pole positions, and fastest laps.

Outside of F1, he has huge involvement in the fashion industry. He has repeatedly stated just how much he loves fashion and is often seen attending some of the biggest and most prestigious fashion shows in the world.

Every single race weekend, Hamilton arrives to the paddock wearing something glamorous that makes him stand out from the rest. On top of that, some of the biggest designers and clothing apparels in the world sponsor him. However, even the best sometimes have embarassing moments they deal with.

One such incident for Hamilton happened back in 2015, when he tried to attend a party at the Paris Fashion Show.

The Mercedes superstar was not alone. He had eight-time Grammy nominated artist Janelle Monae alongside him, and both them were denied entry and it was an awkward moment for all involved.

In spite of the roadblock he faced, Hamilton was ultimately allowed entry into the event along with Monae.
