The Balmain designer opened up to his 7 million followers who showed concern after he uploaded a picture of himself covered in bandages. He writes in the caption, “I’ve been hiding this for too long and it’s time for you to know. Exactly a year ago, the fireplace inside my house exploded. I woke up the next morning in Paris’ Hôpital Saint Louis. To be honest, I am not really sure why I was so ashamed,” he continued. “Maybe this obsession with perfection that fashion is known for and my own insecurities.”

Rousteing said he would hide his scars and bruises with face masks, turtle necks, and long sleeve shirts.
