The Balmain Fall 2015 show just finished in Paris and, oh my, it was major. From the pieces that walked (and swayed) down the runway to the gorgeous women who were showing them off, there are a few things everyone’s going to be discussing.
The models, from reality stars to Victoria’s Secret heavyweights.
I was expecting to see Kendall Jenner since her family has a close connection with creative director Olivier Rousteing and had a hunch that the other model-of-the-moment with a reality TV connection, Gigi Hadid, would also take a spin. Faces that caught me off guard: Jessica Stam, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima, who closed the show looking particularly fierce.
SO many sheer black tights!
Not since Kate Middleton picked up a pair have sheer tights felt this right. Opaque black legs have reigned supreme for the past few years but change might just be wafting over on the winds from Paris.
Fringe, fringe, and more fringe.
When I said that things were swaying out, this was totally what I was referring to. Dresses and tops were covered in curtains that looked super glossy under the stage lights.
The all-lace bodysuits.
Verdict’s still out on whether this is a two-piece look or a jumpsuit, but either way, it’s a lot of lace (and I can’t stop thinking about Kris Jenner’s iffy outfit from the Chanel couture show, though I’m feeling this take way more).
Kardashians in the front row.
Well, Kardashians, Wests, and Jenners. Kim took the opportunity to show off her brand-new super blond locks.
