Dynamic duo Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner starred in Balmain’s royal army-themed show in Paris.
The walks were strong and the shoulder pads were thick. Too thick, according to fashion-obsessed people on the internet. We’ve all heard the things that women should never ever wear like horizontal stripes, high-waisted pants, bedazzled visors and the like. But now people are worried that couture is “fattening” on a couple of supermodels. K.
The show wasn’t specifically about shoulder pads, but it was about suiting and all the things expected of Sir Olivier Rousteing. Thank goodness the unimpeachable sources of fashion advice have expressed their concern over sharp, intricate, fantastical high fashun. You know it’s bad when one of the sexiest celebrity-filled runway shows is getting critiqued for doing pronounced shoulders in Paris.
Everyone knows you can’t slay the game if your shoulders look far too big to be acceptable. We could see if their bodies were covered in huge voluminous pods or something, but when you can’t turn a runway in Balmain without people worrying that the couture is widening on you, then you know it’s getting pretty ridiculous.
