Kim Kardashian In Balmain & LaQuan Smith – Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity

Kim Kardashian In Balmain &  LaQuan Smith - Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity

On Wednesday (June 24) pregnant reality star Kim Kardashian arrived in Cannes, France for the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

Sudler Forum: Her first look of the day was predictably Balmain. The look, which hails from the Fall 2015 collection, was surprisingly covered up. I would’ve loved something fresh and summery considering the season and location, but her penchant for all things black doesn’t appear to change for anything. You may remember that Sophie Marceau wore this same look during Cannes Film Festival.

Daily Mail Party: Kim’s LaQuan Smith lace dress left little to the imagination. At this point, we’ve been there and done that many times before. Kim needs a new shock tactic, as this is beyond tired.

Sophie Marceau In Vionnet, Saint Laurent, Balmain & Armani Privé – Cannes Film Festival Red Carpet Roundup

Sophie Marceau In Vionnet, Saint Laurent,  - Cannes Film Festival Red Carpet Roundup

Sophie Marceau has been busy making the rounds at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, attending four different premieres over the last week in Cannes, France.

‘The Sea of Trees’ Premiere: While I appreciated her willingness to go left in the sea of glittery Cannes gowns with this black-and-white Vionnet design, this mod hybrid look simply made me wish for either the leather jumpsuit or the full Grecian-style gown in its entirety rather than unusually fused together.

‘Shan He Gu Ran’ Premiere: Here, the French beauty does abide by Cannes’ dazzling dress code in her Saint Laurent multicolour front-slit, backless gown. Ordinarily, I would have nixed the bejeweled earrings given the high-octane shine of the dress, but when in Cannes…

Taylor Swift In Balmain – 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Taylor Swift In Balmain - 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Taylor Swift was among the stars at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, hosted at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday (May 17).

It was a big night for her, as she not only premiered her music video for ‘Bad Blood,’ she also collected a few more trophies for her cabinet, most notably securing the Top Artist win.

For the occasion, she joined the Balmain beauties and opted for a Balmain Spring 2015 sparkling white jumpsuit with sultry cutouts that still landed on the right side of sexy.

I loved seeing Taylor sport this edgy, retro-rock look—worn with a super-smoky eye and textured, messy bob—which was all suited to the event and continues to see her inching away from what was once her standard girly style.

In sassy reference to her song, she accessorized with an Edie Parker ‘Bad Blood’ black clutch for the perfect finishing touch.

Chrissy Teigen In Balmain – 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Chrissy Teigen In Balmain - 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Chrissy Teigen co-hosted the 2015 Billboard Music Awards with Ludacris, where she was on the red carpet before taking the stage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday (May 17).

Shimmering in a Balmain Spring 2015 plunge jumpsuit for her first look of the night, she channeled plenty of disco dazzle.

Assuring the retro bombshell vibe, she wore her hair in long voluminous waves and skipped the runway’s black bandeau top in order to sexily maximize her assets.

You may remember Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has also donned this look, but Chrissy made it her own with the addition of a wide black belt.

Does the belt change the look enough for its second outing?

Lily Aldridge In Balmain – 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Lily Aldridge was also in attendance at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday (May 17), where she also appeared on-screen in gal-pal Taylor Swift’s music-video premiere of ‘Bad Blood.’

Another one of designer Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain beauties, the model strutted out a gown from the Balmain Fall 2015 collection.

Significantly pared down from its runway presentation, the royal purple and black dress still brought the requisite leggy slit.

Adding a layer of personality, she wore a cheeky ‘Frostbite’ clutch and gold cuff along with Giuseppe Zanotti mules, which were a refreshing change of pace from black sandals and pumps.

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.
