Putting double-sided Hollywood tape to the test, Kim Kardashian has turned heads at New York Fashion Week wearing an outfit that only a Kardashian can pull off.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star went basically braless at Serena Williams’ runway show, wearing a sheer metallic chain mail tank, teamed with skin tight leather pants and Yeezy heels.
Celebrity designers, it seems, were trending at NYFW today with Rihanna also debuting the latest runway presentation for her lingerie line, Savage x Fenty.
At Serena’s show, Kardashian 38, sat in the front row next to Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
They watched on as tennis ace Williams presented her latest clothing collection, just days after Williams’ heartbreaking US Open final loss.
In trademark Kardashian style, the lawyer-in-training pouted as she showed off her Anna Wintour-style bob while out with close friend, La La Anthony.
On the runway, models wore designs by Williams, 37, including snake print mini skirts, sheer shirts and sequins.
Serena’s range has already drawn a high-profile supporter in Williams’ close friend, the Duchess of Sussex, who previously wore a grey blazer from the Serena Williams Collection.
Former world No. 1 Williams closed the show holding her two-year-old daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.
Williams’ NYFW presentation came days after she lost in straight sets to 19-year-old Bianca Andreescu in the US Open final, calling the defeat her “worst match”.
“I think this is the worst match I’ve played all tournament. And it’s hard to know that you could do better,” Williams said during her post-final press conference.
“It’s inexcusable for me to play at that level.”
THE NEXT EPISODE OF SAVAGE X FENTY
In Brooklyn, Rihanna — who is becoming known as a fashion and branding powerhouse as much as a singer — showed her latest Savage x Fenty lingerie line as part of the official Fashion Week schedule.
The Work singer, 31, also drew a start-studded crowd including Gigi and Bella Hadid, Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne and Australian model, Shanina Shaik, who has been out and about a lotthis fashion season, as have the Hadids — on and of the runway.
Like Tommy Hilfiger’s live streamed event with Zendaya, Rihanna’s runway also has a broadcast element, via an exclusive streaming deal with Amazon Prime Video.
The full show will be shown on the platform from September 20, complete with performances by Halesy, Migos and A$AP Ferg.
Delevingne was expected to make her runway return for the NYFW presentation, which featured “embellished details, must-have Logo Lounge essentials, daring teddies, and so much more,” according to Rihanna’s design statement.
Riri also promised it would be “bigger and badder” than her previous shows.
Due to her multimillion-dollar Amazon deal, photographers were reportedly not allowed inside the huge venue — at Barclays Centre in Brooklyn — with only red carpet photography revealed afterwards.
Savage x Fenty is perhaps the year’s most high-profile lingerie runway, after the rumoured cancellation of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Victoria’s Secret has, of course, faced significant business woes including declining sales, criticism over its choice of models, and increased competition from other brands, particularly Savage x Fenty, which is stocked in sizes XS-3XL and sells off a body positive message.
