While the world is apparently a big runway for Kim Kardashian, today she saw her step on an actual catwalk at Balenciaga’s latest show during Haute Couture Week in Paris.

Kardashian performed at the original Balenciaga Couture salon on Wednesday, where he walked the show in a full-length black gown with a heart-shaped neckline, built-in gloves and boots—the label’s signature silhouette. It was a first grade family affair as well, with daughter North West and mother Kris Jenner as well.

Although she walked LA Fashion Week and her sister label Dash in the late 2000s, this is Kardashian’s first Paris Fashion Week show and arguably her top fashion award yet.

Kardashian joined an elite group of A-celebs marching for Balenciaga including Nicole Kidman, Dua Lipa, Bella Hadid and Naomi Campbell who all took part in the show. Supermodel icon Campbell was spotted blasting through the parlor’s curtained door frames in a massive, high-gloss black ball gown with a structured long collar, while actress Nicole Kidman rekindled her ’80s modeling career for the occasion. The first half of the catwalk featured models wearing full-coverage glossy black face masks, highlighting the famous faces even more.

CEO, Cedric Charbet, said in a press release, he wants to demystify the “very closed world” of haute couture by allowing consumers to Younger ones can see exclusive pieces up close and learn about the very important workshops.

Kardashian’s professional relationship with creative director Denma and Balenciaga reached new heights this year when she was announced as the face of the brand in February. Previously, she has worn Balenciaga designs at a number of notable events, including From head to toe in a black masked look at the 2021 Met Gala And a hot pink spandex ensemble she wore to a Saturday Night Live host later that year. “I participated in my first show at Paris Fashion Week and a high fashion show at that time!” I wrote on Instagram Stories. “Oh my God! The dream came true. Thanks Balenciaga and Dimna.”
