PARIS (AP) — Kim Kardashian made a fashion statement of her own at Balmain’s show Thursday, showing off newly platinum locks.
Not to be outdone, husband Kanye West arrived fashionably at Dries Van Noten’s show, holding up the start. Solange Knowles did the same at Carven’s show.
The new question: Is being fashionably late at Paris Fashion Week now an intentional thing, done to avoid dangerous media scrums in the digital age and allow top celebrities easy entry into shows?
Here are the highlights of Thursday’s ready-to-wear fall-winter 2015 shows in Paris, including reports for Balmain and Carven.
Kim Kardashian caused a kerfuffle at Balmain’s show by stepping out in a new slicked back bleached blond hair style that boldly contrasted with the reality star’s dark eye makeup.
Once inside, Olivier Rousteing’s collection for the age-old Parisian house was equally bold in its color contrasts.
It was a style that might be called: tribal meets ’80s.
Dazzling yellows in tight, thick belts, or in long flowing pleated skirts in silk contrasted with black bands to evoke glamorous danger.
The contrasting colors then went Modernist — in geometric square blocks — and morphed into multicolored, tight tribal bodices or a long lined Masai-inspired coat.
This Balmain woman, it seemed to say, is a force to be reckoned with.
There were plenty of looks that worked, like purple pleated ’80s pants twinned with a bright orange crossover jacket. Balmain is a strong choice for any woman, but is not for the feint-hearted.
