Kim Kardashian has just worn what might be the boldest ensemble in her repertoire of statement looks. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star stepped out in New York City dressed in a head-to-toe leather outfit by Balenciaga.

While the black trench coat, matching pants, gloves, and stiletto boots were already inching close to daring, it was the bodysuit zipped up to cover her face that took it all the way there.

Kardashian, whose style has been influenced by Kanye West since being married to him, seemed to have taken a page out of her now ex-husband’s sartorial book. The American rapper is often spotted both on and off stage with his face obscured by ski-mask style hoods and studded accessories. Together with Balenciaga’s creative director Demna Gvasalia, the trio has become synonymous with bold visuals as of late, more so since Kardashian reenacted her wedding vows with West dressed in a gown from the house’s first couture collection.

Kardashian’s latest outfit also joins her recent series of Balenciaga looks, which may culminate with a headline-making ensemble at the upcoming Met Gala. Before arriving in NYC for the event, she attended a dinner in Malibu wearing yet another subversive all-black look from Gvasalia’s fall/winter 2020 collection. This time, the makeup mogul channeled The Matrix with a one-sleeved asymmetric wrap dress, opera gloves, and stiletto heels topped off with futuristic shades.
