‘Balmainia’ is real and was in full effect at last night’s 2015 Billboard Music Awards!If you just do a simple Google search for the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, images of Oliver Rousteing are everywhere! He and his Balmain x H&M designs worn by the likes of Jourdan Dunn and Kendall Jenner took over the red carpet last night!
And this is just the beginning for the designer and French fashion house. News of their collaboration with fast fashion giant, H&M, broke last night. Come November 5th, we’ll all be able to get in on the fun when the two release their much anticipated collection! Below Kendall Jenner wears the classic bead-embellished Balmain blazer and Jourdan Dunn serves military realness in a sheer top and draped satin mini with a chunky gold belt snatched at the waist. Both ladies go with undeniably chic over-the-knee boots to complete their looks.
This collaboration, not unlike many others, has been met with mixed emotions and varied reactions. However, Rousteing has been quoted in saying, “My collaboration is different from the others. H&M really challenged themselves with craftsmanship, with the high couture level of France, and the results are great.” Despite how some may feel, Styled to a TEA is still thrilled and eager to see what else Oliver Rousteing has up his undoubtedly well designed sleeve!
BONUS: While these looks may not be featured in the collection, we simply could not discuss last night’s BBMAs style standouts without mentioning these ladies. Her epic all white jumpsuit from Balmain’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection earns Taylor Swift a place among the stars of the night. Way to push through, Taylor! But not to be outdone, Kylie Jenner came through to slay us in this little number from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection. And last but definitely not least, BBMA Host, model, and wife to John Legend, Chrissy Teigen was all smiles on the red carpet in another jumpsuit from the Balmain Spring/Summer 2015 collection.
