Way back in November of last year model Joan Smalls, who happens to be a personal friend of Balmain head designer Olivier Rousteing, wore the dress to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show after party, in celebration of her first time walking in the annual event. The Puerto Rican born Chanel spokesmodel paired her Balmain dress with strappy silver Alexander Wang heels, and a matching silver clutch.
Since she became a staple of reality television, Kim Kardashian has been known in part for her designer fashion sense. Since she started datingKanye West though, Kim’s upped her designer gear factor into the high-high end bracket. She recently took to the Cannes Film Festival to support her beau at the presentation of his ‘Cruel Summer’ short film, and rocked a gold and white beaded number from the Balmain Resort 2012 collection. She paired the mini dress with a pair of heavy black silk button up Balmain boots.
