Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing has earned a reputation for casting incredibly A-list campaigns with a crowd of the hottest models of the moment — but he’s one-upped even himself with his latest ads.
He’s brought back some of the regulars of the Balmain Army, including Joan Smalls, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Jourdan Dunn. But he’s also added some new names who also happen to be longtime fans and friends: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
In fact, he and Kanye fully collaborated on the project, shooting a seven-minute music video for the rapper’s single Wolves in which a bevy of beautiful models strut their stuff in Balmain designs.
