As the host of SNL, Kim Kardashian made waves as soon as she started her opening monologue, which was full of cheeky digs at herself, the whole Kardashian clan, and her former husband Kanye West. The audience—and the internet—ate it up. Just as buzzworthy was the statement look Kardashian wore to perform it. The style star hit the SNL stage in a hot pink velvet catsuit by Balenciaga that had her fully covered from the turtleneck down to the heels. But that wasn’t the only Balenciaga look she wore that day. Kardashian wore a trifecta of ensembles that proved her ongoing love affair for the French fashion house isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
With the styling assistance of her ex-husband Kanye West, Kardashian used SNL to highlight Balenciaga’s distinctive silhouettes. On her way to the studio, Kardashian wore a long, pink anorak coat by Balenciaga—an ode to the technical, sporty pieces that Demna Gvasalia often designs. She paired it with silver pointy boots, a glittery handbag, chunky shades, and large dangly earrings for a touch of glam (that juxtaposition between the sporty and glam is a Balenciaga signature, after all).
After performing her monologue in the sexier, more form-fitting catsuit, Kardashian went on to wear some non-Balenciaga costumes throughout the show to play Aladdin’s Jasmine and The Bachelorette. Kardashian left the SNL studio wearing yet another Balenciaga look. This time, it was a spandex catsuit with built-in heels, paired with a shaggy floor-length coat for a slight disco feel. The large crystal earrings also returned, presumedly ready for an after-party with the whole cast.
It’s no wonder Kardashian brought BBE—big Balenciaga energy—to the SNL stage this weekend: she’s been wearing the label almost exclusively lately. This year, she’s worn it on the red carpet (remember her Met Gala look?), on the streets, and even as part of Kanye West’s concert (where they recreated their wedding vows—in Balenciaga Haute Couture, no less). As a muse of the house, Kim and Balenciaga are clearly a match made in heaven.
