Kim Kardashian & Kendall Jenner In Balmain – Vogue Foundation Gala

Kim Kardashian & Kendall Jenner In Balmain - Vogue Foundation Gala

Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner attended the Vogue Foundation Gala during Couture Fashion Week held at the Palais Galliera on Wednesday (July 9) in Paris, France following the Valentino Fall 2014 Couture show.

The reality star and model were part of Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain troop who attended en masse wearing looks from his Fall 2014 collection.

Kim Kardashian: Opting for a military look with a touch of animal magic, Kim donned a Fall 2014 look featuring a black corded top with gold detailing and a leopard-print skirt accented with a green waistband. Factor in those tan Hermes sandals and I have to say I don’t hate it (N.B. I don’t love it either).

Kendall Jenner: Having solidified her model status by walking in her first Couture show for Chanel earlier this week, Kendall looked super fierce donning a leather gladiator-style green frock, stripping back the runway styling of the Masai-style collar and tights and just opting for the mesh Balmain booties.

    I’m in total agreement with you re: Kim’s outfit FC. The top does not suit her shape!

    Kendall is stunning and looks like a fully fledged model here! LOVE!

      BDOTW-worthy for Kendall though

  2. Christine July 10, 2014 at 11:43 #

    Alright dear, I think thats enough Kim
    k posts for the day.

    Kendall looks decent

    • mumu July 10, 2014 at 13:13 #

      indeed it is…

  3. m July 10, 2014 at 11:50 #

    a big no …

  4. Lashae July 10, 2014 at 11:50 #

    Kim looks very uncomfortable in that outfit. It looks like its 2 sizes too small. Also, that combination of two types of print w/ the green belt is not working.

    Kendall looks fine even though I really hate the part down the middle of hair on both Kim and Kendall.

  5. Colleen July 10, 2014 at 11:52 #

    Kim should wear a sign saying “WIDE LOAD”. Dress your size and flatter your figure, not visa-versa.

    • chittychittybangbang July 12, 2014 at 03:00 #

      What a shameful thing to say.

  6. Caro Chanel July 10, 2014 at 11:52 #

    I really like Kims outfit and the pattern play although the skirt is a tad too tight around her bum if you look at her from behind. Kendalls dress immediately reminded me of that one outfit Shailene Woodley wore at theses years MTV movie awards. It was easy to spot Balmaim here. I think they both look good. Thanks for the report.

  7. Nat39 July 10, 2014 at 11:53 #

    Nothing is working there for Kim except for the sandals. Kendall is selling that green frock to me.

    • Nat39 July 10, 2014 at 12:07 #

      correction..While I like Kim’s sandals, she needed a more leg-elongating shoe with this length, the strap-busy sandals stumpify her legs.
      And the rest of the outfit is just a no – that top with the broadening horizontal detailing is very wrong for her and the combination with the animal print makes it all tacky. Also the lip is too dark.

    Kendall looks okay although it’s nothing I want to think about in July.

  9. B July 10, 2014 at 12:20 #

    This is exactly why I didn’t want Kim on this website. She’s decked in designer gear 24/7, she’s out everyday so she’s going to be posted on a too-regular basis. =[

    • Catherine Kallon July 10, 2014 at 12:21 #

      As I said.

      Only at events will she be featured.

      • Christine July 10, 2014 at 12:36 #

        I thought the mutual vote was the top events like Met Gala?

        Let’s hope it’s not every event now.

        We can only grit our teeths for so long

        • Valerie July 11, 2014 at 08:32 #

          Seriousy, just scroll past her. It’s not like she’s being featured here on her daily walks in town. These posts are the first since the “grand debate”.

          I’m not a Kardashian fan either, but can everyone just move, cause the same comments on each post are getting old.

              NO. we can not. It is an open forum and it is our right to voice our disapproval or, in my particular case, plain repugnance.

              • Christine July 12, 2014 at 02:24 #

    Kendall looks good and that’s it.

  11. Mandy July 10, 2014 at 12:25 #

    Kims look is a touch too busy for my tastes, perhaps a plain top would have been better suited. I love Kendall’s outfit, her shoes especially.

  12. Alina July 10, 2014 at 12:40 #

    Kim is NOT a Balmain girl, as hard as she tries to be one.

    Kendall looks OK.

      I think the creative director of the brand itself disagrees with you.

      • Mari July 12, 2014 at 20:10 #

        The designer can do wha he likes, but we have seen that not all the people that are “chosen” or paid (I have no idea) to wear a certain look are the best idea.
        Example, KK in that flowered Givenchy dress, to me it was an awful choice. I have seen some more Givenchy she (or her husband or the designer) insists in wearing and the results are not very flattering.
        Case contrary, Salma in Gucci, short full figured woman, and usually the results are very nice.
        Most women are not build to wear anything, like Kendall, most of us learn to go for what is flattering, but this is not the case, she has not learned or she does not care.

  13. jbetweenthetrees July 10, 2014 at 12:50 #

    Love Kendall. Kim’s look is to busy. I’m ok with post of them! ;-)

  14. Chanel July 10, 2014 at 13:04 #

    Kendall looks amazing. She’s totally selling me that outfit.
    FIERCE

  15. Marcel July 10, 2014 at 13:26 #

    Kim is the portrait of vulgarity and tackiness, as always. If at this point she still didn’t learn what favours her figure and what not, so there is no hope of redemption.

  16. Pedro July 10, 2014 at 13:33 #

    Kim looks weird! Too much going on

    Kendall looks AMAZING! Really fierce, i love it

  17. dee July 10, 2014 at 13:34 #

    I like Kendall’s look. I think Kim should have worn a simple black top. The one she has on is too busy and not flattering on her. The skirt and shoes I can live with.

  18. Judy July 10, 2014 at 13:40 #

    Kim looks stunning. It’s not necessarily my taste but the pattern play works for her. Also love that dark look. Even if many people are hesitant to embrace her, she is a major figure in fashion for the decade and is worth discussing. Thanks for featuring, FC

  19. Peony July 10, 2014 at 14:18 #

    Kendall looks good, even though its a hideous dress. She looks like a glamorous Ninja Turtle.

    Kim…yech.

    • chittychittybangbang July 12, 2014 at 05:12 #

      Ha, Ninja Turtle is exactly what she looks like!! Lol!!

  20. Vanie July 10, 2014 at 14:25 #

    FC, please do not post about Kim Kardashian on your site.

  21. Joy July 10, 2014 at 14:48 #

    Geesh, what hate here…I don’t love Kim’s look, but I don’t loath it either. For me the pieces she’s wearing are interesting enough to definitely deserve a post whether she looks good or bad. I’ve seen much worse looks sported about.

    Kendall however looks beautiful, even if it’s not a summer look.

  22. julyol1972 July 10, 2014 at 14:58 #

    FC, I know you said she’ll only be featured at events, but in the past week or so, because you’ve also featured clothing and accessories from her and some of her family, she been on this site quite a bit, I’m already tired of her. Since she goes to so many events, it feels like we’re going to be bombarded with Kim K sightings.

    Anyway, I dislike the top because it’s all wrong for such a chesty woman. The horizontal striping reinforces that cardinal fashion rule. And she doesn’t have that innate flair to pair such competing textures and prints, and own them. Add the shoes that once again make her legs look short, and this is a big, fat, NO!!!

    • Catherine Kallon July 10, 2014 at 16:18 #

      They have always been featured on the Shop Her Closet page, they were just not featured on the main page previously.

      • julyol1972 July 10, 2014 at 17:20 #

        Thanks for the clarification, FC. I guess I never really paid attention to their featurettes on the SHC page.

  23. sophie July 10, 2014 at 15:20 #

    Kim looks tacky as always but Kendall looks good.

  24. pinksugar July 10, 2014 at 15:51 #

    Very glad to see FC covering this family. Like it or not they are a part of the fashion world right now.

    Kim looks like a stuffed sausage as per usual. Her clothes never fit. Even on a rare occasion she puts the porn boobs away she still manages to look cheap.

    Kendall looks good here. Age appropriate and confident.

  25. Prudence July 10, 2014 at 16:03 #

    Kendall looks fierce, Kim looks like she can barely breath. That skirt is clearly too small for her and that top is not meant for her large boobs ( look how wide they look )

  26. Hannah July 10, 2014 at 16:16 #

    I’m really not against Kim’s look here. I wonder if Christina Hendricks were wearing this same outfit if the commentary would be so cruel… I think not.

    -Kim should wear a sign saying “WIDE LOAD”
    -Kim is the portrait of vulgarity and tackiness
    -Kim looks tacky as always

    It seems, to me, that we are ignoring the clothing here, which is the point, and making complaints on her character. Save that crap for TMZ, please.

    Kendall is killing this look! I think she is totally fabulous here.

    • Nicky July 10, 2014 at 16:48 #

      +1000. This is a fashion site, not a celebrity gossip site. We’ll get good and bad outfits from anybody, and if you don’t like it, you can say so without attacking her character. I don’t care for the Kardashians, but these comments are atrocious.

      • dee July 10, 2014 at 17:57 #

        I agree with both of you.

        • sara July 10, 2014 at 18:43 #

          Agreed. Lets keep it about the fashion. That being said, I think that the army green belt sort of brings the look together in an interesting way. And from pictures I’ve seen, Olivier personally dressed her so I imagine thats how he wanted the look to be presented. I think a different sandal might have been better with this look – something more elongating. I think Kendall killed it here – she looks fierce!

    • sara July 10, 2014 at 18:46 #

      And also, for those of you commenting on her size (which I rarely see for other fuller women like Christina or Mindy) I’d love to see what you or your friends look like… I highly doubt everyone on this site that comments about weight is the perfect size 2. Enough of making women feel bad about their size. Its fine to talk about the fit and the fashion, but “wide load”? really? we’re better than that.

      • Larissa July 10, 2014 at 19:07 #

        Some comments about Kim are in fact harsh but I think that’s partially because Kim is not clueless about fashion like, let’s say, Lena Dunham or someone else that clearly doesn’t know how to pick flattering dresses for her shape. She intentionally dresses only in order to seek attention in the worst ways and yet she’s part of the fashion system, appears on Vogue etc. That being said, in this particular occasion I don’t like her outfit at all.

    • anna July 10, 2014 at 21:01 #

      I find some of these comments unfair too. Although Kim’s outfit is wrong for her figure and the patterns are a bit too mismatched for my tastes she doesn’t look bad. I don’t like Kendalll’s hair but she is trying her best with the look

      Having said that I have seen many people post quite judgemental, cruel comments about other celebrities and these were not called out in any way. I’ve seen even more comments calling looks “tacky” etc., so again, it’s not only her.

      Plus the whole point of the Kardashians is that their fame feeds on the negative press they get for the antics/ stunts.

  27. jenny July 10, 2014 at 16:25 #

    Not a fan of any kardashians but Kendall looked amazing for once!
    I hate what Kim is wearing, is this her idea of being accepted in the fashion world?
    She just looks horrible like a joke!
    The hunter top is looking to shoot the leopard below!

    Did she looked into the mirror before stepping out?

  28. Nicky July 10, 2014 at 16:45 #

    Wow this girl gets a lot of comments! The tight skirt does not flatter her figure very much – I think she’d look much better in the fit-and-flare style. Kendall looks nice ankles up.

  29. tuftufwang July 10, 2014 at 17:37 #

    Yes to Kendall’s outfit. No to Kim’s outfit – think her outfits are always too small and too tight.

  30. Griffith July 10, 2014 at 17:47 #

    I love so much THIS dress that Kendall Jenner wears. Balmain is my favourite brand ! foulards.comtesse-sofia.fr

  31. stephanie July 10, 2014 at 19:03 #

    ugh so OTT! Tacky, thy name is Kim Kardashian.

  32. Lisa Chick July 10, 2014 at 19:40 #

    I like how they both look. Kim is not a model so she looks like a full figured woman wearing a complicated look that’s hard to pull off. The top does not give way to how busty Kim is. I only wish the shoes were different – didn’t need to be so busy.
    Kendall looks stunning!
    I enjoy the Kardashian and Jenner girls and admire their individuality. Keep on showing them. They are very relevant in these times.

    • Marcel July 10, 2014 at 20:43 #

      Relevant for who ? For women trying to get for a moment under the spot light through a porn video ?
      I am sorry, she is not relevant AT ALL, nor for me , nor in my work place , nor in my family and neither in my circle of gals.

        If you dislike Kim so much, maybe you should stop going on websites that cover her, like this one.

        • Marcel July 12, 2014 at 10:56 #

          or maybe you should learn on how to accept other people’s opinions in an open forum. The subject was open to discussion and if my opinion differs of yours you can add a valid argument as a counterpoint but, to expect that we just withdraw from it, is a bit disingenuous, to say the least.
          Besides, there is a moderator, who seems to do her job pretty well.

  33. Marcus July 10, 2014 at 20:56 #

    Wow, Kim can’t catch a break! At the Valentino show she was too busty and now she’s covered up but still gets the heat. While I do agree the outfit is a little busy, I love the dark lip and slicked hair.

  34. Phoenix July 10, 2014 at 20:58 #

    Um, Kim may be a case of ‘If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all’….

    Kendall looks awesome though!

  35. amy July 10, 2014 at 22:12 #

    I can’t make my mind about kim’s outfit. there are elements I like and some not so much.
    Kendall is pretty perfect here, she’s selling the garment.

  36. Rene July 10, 2014 at 22:28 #

    I really liked kendall’s look, i think she deserves a spot on BDOTW.

  37. Carla July 10, 2014 at 22:59 #

    I’m not sure one could reasonably say Kim Kardashian isn’t a Balmain type when in other photographs Rousteing himself is shown dressing her in this outfit. I like this look on her, but I enjoy seeing photos of her. I think she’s pretty, often wears beautiful things (not a single person gets it right 100% of the time) and I have no reason to judge her otherwise.

    That said, so far Rousteing has been a bit of a two-trick pony at Balmain–mini and militaristic.

  38. Jazz July 10, 2014 at 23:14 #

    Thank you for featuring Kim! Love Kendall here, she’s really coming into her own

  39. Judy July 11, 2014 at 09:00 #

    Is Kendall’s the same one Shailene Woodley wore a little while ago at the MTV movie awards? It’s bothering me so much!!

    • Jen July 11, 2014 at 20:24 #

      No it’s not. You could’ve googled “Shailene Woodley in Balmain” and found your answer.
