Today we learned that Paris is all about hair. Famous people and their famous hair. First came the designer Rick Owens’ invite – leathery, hairy, a bit weird – turning our Instagram feeds into a virtual barber’s floor, and now this, from Kim Kardashian, who cast off her wallflower shackles and arrived at the Balmain show with newly blond hair.
It’s not the first time she has attempted to derail fashion week – in New York, she dressed baby North West in a bulletproof vest on the Frow, for the love of God. But back to the hair, which she paired with a black velvet Balmain dress and opaque tights. A straw poll reveals a mixed verdict (read: defiantly opposed) although, credit to Kardashian, she could pull off a toga so we’ll let this look settle before we decide.
