Nowadays, there are so many ways to tease a new collection, mostly involving social media. However, sometimes you can make the biggest impact by going the good, old fashioned, IRL route, like Balmain's Olivier Rousteing, who put models in his spring '16 threads before the collection debuted. He arrived at a Vogue dinner honoring Instagram's Kevin Systrom on Wednesday night with two card-carrying members of his #BalmainArmy in tow: Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, decked out in head-to-toe Balmain...that hadn't even been seen on the runway yet.

Balmain confirmed on Instagram that the models were wearing exclusive pieces from the fashion house's spring '16 collection, a day before the looks hit the catwalk. Jenner's crop-top-and-trouser combo was quite a sensation, thanks to those see-through flowy pants. The model titled the resulting assets-flaunting look "Balmain Booty." Hadid's intricately sequined minidress boasts multiple Balmain signatures, like its emerald-jeweled hue and meticulous attention to detail.

Both models appeared on Rousteing's runway the following afternoon, which means they've already worn spring '16 twice in under 24 hours. Is that some kind of record?
