Designer collaborations are exciting in their own right, but this latest one is basically the equivalent of a supernova. Photos of celebrities wearing H&M x Balmain are all over Instagram, and style stars like Jaimie King, the Jenner sisters, and Kaia Gerber and Cindy Crawford are showing us average Janes how to rock the collection like a fashion icon. The best part? It's pretty affordable, especially when compared to regular Balmain prices.
The H&M capsule collection is much more wallet-friendly and just as stylish as the brand's runway wares, meaning now that the collab is in stores and online, mere mortals will be able to wear the exact same outfits as the A-List party-goers at the fashion show in NYC on Tuesday night — how often does that happen? Basically never.
Aside from the fact that the stars showed off outfits that were available for purchase a couple days later rather than a couple months later, as is the norm in the fashion world, I also loved seeing the pieces in action in BTS pics on social media, as well. You better believe that plenty of celebs were working this collection. If it's good enough for them, it's certainly good enough for me.
Here are some of the best celeb selfies of the collection.
1. Olivier Rousteing & Plenty Of Models
That emerald-green velvet blazer is a dream, and his arm candy isn't bad either. He snapped a selfie with model Dudley O'Shaughnessy and model/actress Noemie Lenoir.
2. Jaime King In Chandelier Earrings... & Nothing Else
This is clearly a post-party picture, so King is kicking back in big, bold H&M x Balmain earrings and skin, as she puts it.
3. Michelle Trachtenberg With Kaia Gerber
Trachtenberg and Gerber put their best kissy faces forward for a selfie.
4. Michelle Trachtenberg With Jessica Szohr
She gets a little less Zoolander — and a lot more silly — with Szohr.
5. Kaia Gerber Had Instagram Gold
The budding model has legs for days, and she shows them off in a sequined, long-sleeved mini dress that is one of the most recognizable from the collection.
6. Cindy Crawford's Model-Off-Duty Look
Chicness runs in the family. Crawford had one of the best outfits of the evening, IMO. That belt! It's a keeper.
7. Cameron Russell's Supermodel Squad
She wore a jumpsuit from the collection, which she paired with slicked back hair in a selfie with model pals Jessica Hart, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, and Maryna Lindchuk.
8. Maryna Lindchuk In Sparkles
Lindchuk posed with Russian It-Girl Elena Perminova. Blond, toussled locks and blue eyes times two in this snap!
9. Kendall Jenner's Pic Takes The Cake
She gets mighty cheeky, literally, in this shot from two weeks before the collection launched, and I'm not mad about it.
