Welcome to "Who Won Fashion Today," where we award the boldest, best dressed person of the day. Winning fashion doesn't necessarily mean you're wearing the most expensive, trendiest, or prettiest dress. Rather, we reward risk-takers—those that stay true to their personal style and make us go, "Now THAT is a LEWK.”
Last night, anyone who was anyone gathered together to celebrate Olivier Rousteing's first Los Angeles Balmain boutique opening, and a super cool collab with Beats by Dre. Because, who doesn’t need rose gold headphones, am I right?
Kim Kardashian West was there in an outfit only Kim could wear (aka a bra and a see through skirt). Kate Bosworth wore an ‘80s prom dress on drugs, and Kerry Washington opted for a more traditional (if one could call Balmain traditional) one-shouldered white mini, with all the bedazzles a girl could dream of. Flipping through photos of the night, one may think it was a costume party. Theme: Balmain Army. And as the best costume parties do, this one had a winner.
VIDEO: Here's How Much You're Spending On Shoes
Hailee Steinfeld, you actress-turned-singer wunderkind, you. I have always loved your hair and your voice, and now I have something to say about your fashions. You are a risk taker. You choose sexy over cutesy, and sometimes you go a little overboard. But last night? You were perfection. I’m not quite sure how to describe your look other than Skeletor-Couture (Skeltour?). Is that a minidress you're wearing, or just a long-sleeve lengthy shirt? Either way, I love the iconic Balmain-armor quality it has and it fits you like a glove.
But the real deal sealer here are the shoes, if you could call them shoes. Pants with heels? Tights with a sole? I don’t know. But they’re laced up all the way to … well, I’m not quite sure where, and they are FASH-ON.
