Kim Kardashian Steps Out in Balenciaga Caution Tape
| LAST UPDATE 03/10/2022
Kim Kardashian absolutely killed it (as per usual) in her latest Balenciaga look during Paris Fashion Week. Now that the celebrity icon is legally divorced, people wondered if she'd continue to rep Balenciaga due to ex-husband Kanye's ties with the fashion house or become the muse of a new fashion house. Despite attending her first Prada show in Milan, Kim showed up looking dope AF at the Balenciaga fall/winter 2022-proving she is still loyal to the Paris-based fashion house.
Kim Kardashian attended Balenciaga's Paris Fashion Week show in a look unlike any others. She's known for breaking boundaries with her bold choices - and this outfit was no different. The reality TV star stepped out in an all-black catsuit wrapped in yellow Balenciaga caution tape, along with the brand's classic Hourglass handbag, also covered in caution tape. Kim took her followers behind the scenes while getting ready for the evening through her Instagram stories. Once the look was completed, the celeb sat front row (obviously) next to Balenciaga CEO Cédric Charbit and Euphoria star Alexa Demie. "I'm scared it's going to rip when I sit down. Should I just let it rip?" Kim reportedly said - and thankfully, it made it through the evening entirely intact. Phew. In addition to the rest of the unbelievable collection, the ready-to-wear version of Kim's looked came down the runway-having people wondering if they too could cop the look. When the show was over, Kim had the suit cut off her body, boots, handbag - and all to be kept in her archive.
As we've seen, creative director Demna Gvasalia has deemed Kim his ultimate muse. The Hollywood superstar takes any chance she gets to wear the designer's most out-there pieces. If you recall, some of her most iconic looks were Balenciaga - her all black moment at the 2021 Met Gala, or her slick hot pink catsuit and accompanying feather coat she wore hosting Saturday Night Live. Kim is Balenciaga.
So, if you're looking to cop Kim's unique look, apparently, you now can. The brand will be selling the designer yellow and black caution tape to recreate the look at home - but no word yet on the price. In the meantime, we wonder what other Balenciaga looks Kim will be rocking next. Stay tuned.
