Balmain fall 2010 Page 1
Not to be outdone by Diddy, Kanye is tapping Balmain‘s Christophe Decarnin to design costumes for his upcoming, sure-to-melt-your-face-off tour. Rumor has it Yeezy is asking for “seventies-centric pantsuits, cutaway coats, and gilded jeans” from Balmain’s fall 2010 collection to be remade just for him.
In what we have to imagine is an unprecedented coup, that sparkly gold Balmain dress has landed a seventh cover. Yes, count it: seven. The same dress that Natalia Vodianova infamously wore sans smooth legs is now also on the cover of December’s British Elle, worn by Anne Hathaway. Did we mention this is the dress’s seventh cover appearance? (That’s almost double the amount of covers that appliqued Miu Miu number had!) Like we said, unprecedented.
