t’s no secret that Kim Kardashian is obsessed with Balenciaga right now. From her hosting slot on Saturday Night Live, during which she served three consecutive looks by Demna Gvasalia, to Paris Hilton’s wedding – the Skims founder has been spotted wearing an array of the house’s signature looks.
So, it comes as no surprise that the 41-year-old mogul wore head-to-toe Balenciaga to accept The Fashion Icon Award at the 2021 People’s Choice Awards ceremony in Los Angeles. The ensemble (look 61 from the spring/summer 2021 collection, to be precise about it) consisted of a corseted minidress, a body suit with a high roll-neck, and a pair of thigh-high Knife boots, all of which were made from the same intricate black lace fabric. Kardashian accessorised the look with a dramatic pair of oversized sunglasses from the brand’s autumn/winter 2021 couture showcase.
Kardashian made a point of thanking Kanye West for bringing her into the industry. “To Kanye,” she said, “for really introducing me to the fashion world. I fell in love with fashion and I’m so inspired by so many people, but, again, this is like a dream that I get to wake up and wear these amazing clothes, try new things, and take a risk. I’m so humbled.”
