Who Wore Balmain Better…Kim Kardashian or Victoria Beckham?

Who Wore Balmain Better Kim Kardashian or Victoria Beckham

For the Vogue Foundation Gala back in July, Kim Kardashian wore a Balmain Fall 2014 military-style look consisting of a woven top and leopard-print skirt. She has since gone on to wear the brand on several occasions.

Having seen Victoria Beckham wearing the same skirt earlier this week, it’s become apparent that Kim has shortened hers.

Victoria opted to keep her look much simpler, shunning the military aspects of the collection and styling her look with black accessories and of course her trademark shades.

For some reason I think this might be a close contest in the poll, but for me there is only one winner – VB.

Lanvin Spring 2015 Front Row

Lanvin Front Row Spring 2015

Noomi Rapace and Kim Kardashian, who earlier in the day had taken their front row seats at Balmain, also attended the Lanvin Spring 2015 show alongside Ciara on Thursday (September 25) in Paris, France during Fashion Week.

Noomi Rapace: Upon looking at this Lanvin Pre-Fall 2014 striped suit paired with a fur stole, I’ve just realized it’s not the clothes that I object to; rather, it’s the unfortunate hair and makeup Noomi is working during fashion week.

Kim Kardashian: The reality star didn’t need to do much to ensure all eyes were on her, but just in case she opted to attend the show with at least two-thirds of her breast hanging out. While she is wearing a top under the blazer, the look leaves little to the imagination.

Ciara: I was hoping that Ciara could save this front row but I’m a fan of neither the oversized leather Lanvin Fall 2014 coat nor the makeup. I hope she finds her way back to glory soon. I haven’t really liked anything she’s worn since she made her return to the red carpet.

Balmain Spring 2015 Front Row

Balmain Spring 2015 Front Row

Olivier Rousteing presented his Spring 2015 collection for Balmain yesterday (September 25), sending some of our favourite models down the runway including Jourdan Dunn, Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Here’s a look at who saw the show first hand in the front row.

Noomi Rapace: Hmm… I’m starting to think that Noomi has lost her mojo. Usually styled to perfection, this zebra-print blazer and striped sequin dress effort doesn’t impress me much as the styling is so uninspired. You can tell she just threw it on.

Kim Kardashian: Seated in the front row alongside her mother and husband, Kanye West, to see her kid sister Kendal Jenner take the runway, the reality star made a better representation of a Balmain girl. Dressed in a Balmain Resort 2015 patterned frock, the piece was styled with Balmain lace-up booties and accessorized with a choker and cuffs from the Spring 2015 collection. Love her or hate her, she looked much better than Noomi Rapace.

Kim Kardashian was also in attendance at the 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards, hosted in association with Hugo Boss at The Royal Opera House in London, England on Tuesday (September 2).

The reality TV star also worked the sheer trend, wowing in a fully custom-designed ensemble to collect her Women of the Year award.

Accentuating her famous curves, she wore an Atsuko Kudo black latex bustier-style bodysuit with a dramatic showpiece of a skirt: a Ralph & Russo Fall 2014 Couture corseted look that featured intricate gunmetal crystal detailing.

She accessorized with embellished Tom Ford sandals and a selection of diamond bangles, further enhancing the look with relaxed, pretty waves and a nude lip.

Kim Kardashian In Balmain – 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA

Kim Kardashian In Balmain - 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA

Kim Kardashian was on the red carpet at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards #VMA at The Forum in Inglewood, California on Sunday (August 24), where she was supporting her nominee-husband Kanye West.

Also one of the evening’s presenters, the reality star surely suffered no shortage of stares in her attention-grabbing Resort 2015 number from one of her currently favoured design houses, Balmain.

The heavily beaded mini-dress featured an interesting cape-like shape. Yet, even the leggy nature of the look plus all that graphic red and black patterning couldn’t detract from the focal point of that plunge.

She styled the look with Balmain black woven cage shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewels, not to mention bombshell waves and a sultry nude lip.
