Kim Kardashian, Nicole Kidman and Salma Hayek lead the front row stars at Balenciaga runway show in LA – as Hollywood unites to support brand despite 2022 scandal

Kim KardashianNicole Kidman and Salma Hayek were among a number of fashionably dressed guests attending the Balenciaga Fall 24 show on Saturday in Los Angeles.

The reality TV star, 42, sizzled in a pair of skintight nude lace leggings that showed off her famous hourglass curves, and featured built in heels as she arrived to the show, which took place in a blocked-off residential street in the Hancock Park neighborhood.

Kidman, 56, looked classy in a black velvet coat dress with a stylish open-shoulder design. She paired the look with a black clutch, pointed toe heels, a large pearl earring, black gloves and sunglasses.

Meanwhile the Frida star, 57, stunned in a form-hugging black ruched dress, which she teamed with a bubblegum pink Balenciaga purse and heels.

The show comes after the luxury fashion house faced a massive controversy over a year ago when consumers claimed their ad campaign that showed children posing with bears wearing BDSM gear promoted ‘child exploitation.’

Kardashian teamed her outfit with a black zip up athletic jacket with a white Beverly Hills logo. She wore her raven tresses parted in the middle and cascading down in a curly wet look.

The mother-of-four shielded her eyes with a pair of futuristic sunglasses.

She carried an Erewhon shopping bag with a bouquet of flowers, as she promoted the new collaboration between the luxury fashion house and the upscale grocery store.

‘This is my purse for the day. There are flowers in it. I’m going to give them to Demna later, she told Variety, in reference to Balenciaga’s creative director Demna Gvasalia.

Following the show Kardashian told the outlet that the ‘collection was amazing’ and that she liked the ‘Juicy Couture-inspired sweats’ at the start of the show.

She was joined by sister Kendall Jenner, 28, who wowed in a sleeveless black maxi gown.

Kim initially faced backlash for refusing to cut ties with the brand and praising the way it handled the scandal, despite her claiming to be ‘shaken’ and ‘disgusted’ by the images.

Since then, she has made her loyalty clear by participating in an ad for Balenciaga’s upcoming Summer 2024 collection.

She posed in a black latex dress and knee-high boots for the brand’s latest campaign.

Back in November 2022, the fashion house came under fierce fire after it released an ad that showed kids posing alongside various BDSM-themed items.

Kim Kardashian for Balenciaga Winter 22 Campaign

Afterwards, the SKIMS founder, who had been in business with the company for several years before that, refused to cut ties with Balenciaga, but released a statement saying she was ‘shaken’ and ‘disgusted’ by the images.

‘I have been quiet for the past few days, not because I haven’t been shocked and outraged by the recent Balenciaga campaigns, but because I wanted an opportunity to speak to their team to understand for myself how this could have happened,’ she said in an Instagram post.

‘As a mother-of-four, I have been shaken by those disturbing images. The safety of children must be held with the highest regard and anything against it should have no place in our society – period.’

However, Kim said that she was comfortable with how the company reacted to the scandal, adding, ‘I appreciate Balenciaga’s removal of the campaigns and apology.

‘In speaking with them, I believe they understand the seriousness of the issue and will take the necessary measures for this to never happen again.’

At the time, she said she was reconsidering her relationship with the fashion brand but had not yet many any firm decisions.

‘As for my future with Balenciaga, I am currently re-evaluating my relationship with the brand, basing it off their willingness to accept accountability for something that should have never happened to begin with – and the actions I am expecting to see them take to protect children.’

One month later, during an appearance on the Angie Martinez IRL Podcast, she expressed frustration over the public’s reaction to her statement.
