If Balenciaga has a poster child right now, it’s Kim Kardashian. The star has been wearing designer Demna’s looks non-stop over the past few months. She and Demna are a match made in heaven, really, thanks to their mutual love of combining glamour with a more sporty aesthetic (take the pink spandex catsuit and shaggy coat she wore for her SNL after-party, for example). This weekend in L.A., while grabbing dinner at Craig’s—the celebrity-hotspot restaurant—Kardashian once again emerged in a Balenciaga look. Only this time, it was all about the statement shades she was rocking.
Kardashian stepped out in a sleek leather trench, which she wore as a dress with no top underneath. (Celebs are really not letting go of the Matrix trend.) With the addition of her huge, shield sunglasses, she looked like a high-fashion Batgirl—if the classic superhero has an obsession with designer labels, that is. Currently, Balenciaga is selling multiple different styles of these bug-eyed shades, but they keep selling out. Maybe Kardashian has bought them all. Extra-large sunglasses are quickly becoming her go-to accessory. Shades aside, though, we could also totally see her kicking some bad-guy butt in her pointy stiletto boots as well. Kim to the rescue!
