Karlie Kloss Gets Real, Wears Ballet Flats To A Fashion Show

While Kim Kardashian was making a very grand entrance with her new platinum locks, Karlie Kloss’s arrival at Balmain was notably more low-key. She showed up ahead of Olivier Rousteing’s show, where she joined her pals Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner — wearing jeans, a tee, and ballet flats. Of course, the outfit was no less chic than Kim’s, or than anything worn on the catwalk. Sometimes, less really is more.

Her double-breasted Balmain blazer has an awfully fancy tuxedo collar, but Kloss successfully dressed it down with casual layers. The slouchy tee is sheer, so she layered it over a pretty, lacy bralette. (When you’re top’s see-through, we vote for underthings that provide a little coverage and are way too pretty to cover up. This one does the job flawlessly.) Like the rest of the look, Karlie’s white, ankle-length jeans toe the line between laid-back and luxe. Because, when in France.

Karlie topped it all off with the coolest Parisian accessory of all time: a pair of classic Repettos. Best of all, it’s an outfit that's as appropriate for your local dive as for the Balmain ranks. Here’s how to get it.
