Kim Kardashian hits the Balenciaga runway at Paris Fashion Week

It’s Kim Kardashian’s katwalk.

The Skims founder was among the many celebrities cast in the Balenciaga Couture show during Paris Fashion Week Wednesday, joining the likes of Nicole Kidman, Dua Lipa and “Selling Sunset” favorite Christine Quinn.

Kardashian, 41, hit the runway wearing a version of what’s basically becoming her everyday uniform: a skintight asymmetrical gown with attached gloves, styled with the house’s polarizing “pantashoes” — leggings with built-in high heels.

The beauty mogul had her own cheering section at the show in the form of her 9-year-old daughter, North West, and her mother, Kris Jenner, both of whom were seated front row.

Kardashian’s casting is a natural next step in her relationship with Balenciaga; in February, she starred in a campaign for the luxury label, posing in a curve-hugging catsuit, leopard-print coat and more covetable looks.

She’s also chosen Balenciaga for many (if not most) of her high-profile appearances in recent years. Who could forget her blacked-out, identity-obscuring Met Gala 2021 ensemble, her hot pink velvet “SNL” onesie or the caution-tape catsuit she chose for the brand’s last show in March?

Kardashian was famously introduced to Balenciaga Creative Director Demna Gvasalia by her ex, Kanye West, who helped inspire her viral Met look in September.

“There’s no logo, no face, but everyone knows it’s her,” a source told Page Six Style at the time. “Kanye gave her the courage to push creativity and people’s imagination through art.”

Now, Kardashian’s pushing boundaries on the Paris runway.
