It's one of the most anticipated shows of Paris Fashion Week, and Olivier Rousteing and his self-declared army of Balmainiacs sure didn't disappoint this year. The super-cool squad were out in force earlier this week, with Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Rosie-Huntington-Whiteley and Alessandra Ambrosio storming down the catwalk in signature clinging catsuits, spikes and embellishments. Everything we've come to expect from the most fierce label in fashion. There was a more feminine feel in the air too, though, with sheer lace and ruffles in pretty pink pastels, mint green and soft greys. It was, says Olivier, "a celebration of the natural beauty, shape and strength of every woman."

Backstage after the show, the Balmainia continued with a Kimless-Kanye West putting on a show, dancing, his hood still up. Mother-in-law Kris Jenner was in tow, too, who flew by, blowing kisses and telling Rousteing how proud she was of him.

The main topic of conversation post-show was the A-list hair swap – Kendall went blonde, whereas Gigi and Rosie switched to sultry brunettes – we later found out they were just wigs. Shame!
