Kim Kardashian walks the runway of Balenciaga during Paris Fashion Week

It’s Kim Kardashian’s catwalk.

The Skims founder was one of several celebrities cast in the Balenciaga Couture show during Paris Fashion Week Wednesday, joining Nicole Kidman, Dua Lipa and ‘Selling Sunset’ favorite Christine Quinn.

Kardashian, 41, took to the runway in a version of what has essentially become her everyday uniform: a form-fitting asymmetrical dress with attached gloves, styled with the house’s polarizing “pantas cover” — leggings with built-in high heels.

The beauty mogul had her own cheering section on the show in the form of her 9-year-old daughter, North West, and her mother, Kris Jenner, who both sat in the front row.

Kardashian’s casting is a natural next step in her relationship with Balenciaga; in February, she starred in a campaign for the luxury label, posing in a figure-hugging catsuit, a leopard-print coat and more covetable looks.

She has also chosen Balenciaga for many (if not most) of her high profile performances in recent years. Who could forget her blacked-out, identity-obscuring 2021 Met Gala ensemble, her hot pink velvet “SNL” onesie, or the warning tape catsuit she chose for the brand’s final show in March?

Kardashian was famously introduced to Balenciaga Creative Director Demna Gvasalia by her ex, Kanye West, who inspired her to create her viral Met look in September.

“There’s no logo, no face, but everyone knows it’s her,” a source told Vidak For Congress Style at the time. “Kanye gave her the courage to stimulate creativity and people’s imagination through art.”

Now Kardashian is pushing the boundaries on the Paris runway.
