Unstartled to see the Keeping up with the Kardashian alum making an appearance at the prestigious show, what was a little less expected was her outfit for the show.
An athletic top and leggings covered entirely from Balenciaga branded packing tape that had been wrapped around her by hand, along with a matching version of the brand’s cult Hourglass handbag that had also been trussed up with the yellow and black tape, was Kim’s dress code of choice.
