Who Wore Balmain Better…Karolina Kurkova or Kylie Jenner?

Who Wore Balmain Better Karolina Kurkova or Kylie Jenner

Karolina Kurkova was the first to wear this leather Balmain Pre-Fall 2013 mini to the IWC FilmMakers dinner back in May 19 last year, before Kylie Jenner gave the piece its second run-out during the 2015 Billboard Music Award exactly a year later.

While I prefer Kylie’s open shoe choice, the overall presentation – belt, hair and fit – from Karolina possess much more finesse so she wins for me.

Kylie Jenner In Balmain – 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Kylie Jenner In Balmain - 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Kylie Jenner was also in attendance at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday (May 17).

Like her sister Kendall, Kylie was also donning a Balmain design, hers from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

The structured black leather mini-dress, enhanced with gold piping and a metal belt, had a tough, rock-princess edge, although it comes across as a bit passé if only because we’ve seen it—and others like it—many times before.

You may remember that Karolina Kurkova wore the same dress a couple years back.

Cage heels completed the look that actually was quite striking with her jet-black locks.

Get the Look: Kylie Jenner’s AMAs Makeup

2014 American Music Awards - ArrivalsKendall Jenner may be the it-model of the moment, but it’s her little sister Kylie Jenner who also turns heads on the red carpet. The family’s go-to makeup artist, Rob Scheppy, worked with worked with Kylie Jenner for the 2014 American Music Awards on Sunday.

Her skin was evened out using the Makeup Forever Foundation Palette in Medium. With 11 shades in one kit, this set ensures you’ll receive flawless coverage no matter your complexion. Scheppy added depth to Kylie’s face with the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow. Makeup Forever Super Matte Loose Powder was applied over foundation to set the look.

The eyes were lightly smoked with Eyeko Me and My Shadow in Chocolate. A shadow that doesn’t crease is a must for long award shows. Scheppy filled Kylie’s brows with Eyeko Brow Liner and locked strands in place with Eyeko Brow Gel. Lashes are key to Kylie’s look, so he added length with Eyeko Lash Wardrobe. The faux corner lashes offer a more natural look than whole strip options. Scheppy finished the eyes with a coat of Eyeko Black Magic Mascara.

For added moisture, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Nourishing Lip Balm was smoothed over Kylie’s pout. To create the lip color, which complimented Kylie’s Alexandre Vauthier Couture dress, Scheppy didn’t use lipstick at all. The hue is simply MAC Lip Pencil in Burgundy.

Kylie Jenner In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 2014 American Music Awards

Kylie Jenner In Alexandre Vauthier Couture - 2014 American Music Awards

Kylie Jenner attended the 2014 American Music Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday (November 23) in Los Angeles, California alongside sister Kendall Jenner.

The young reality TV star flashed just as much skin as her sibling wearing a Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2014 Couture oxblood satin gown, with both a plunging neckline and hip-high slit.

Keeping the oxblood theme going with the lip colour and nail polish, the look was teamed with mesh pumps, two golden cuffs, and a Ileana Makri ‘Centaurus’ ring.

While some might have certain objections about this look, I feel her Tamara Mellon pumps were a really poor choice as was the fringed Alexander McQueen shoulder bag.
