Battle of the Balmains

26 March 2009

We've got to be blunt with you on this – if you don't know about the world's ever-growing obsession with all things Balmain, we suggest you get involved, like, now. Because as each day passes, there are girls dropping at the feet of Christophe Decarnin's bejewelled sandals or selling their grandmas for an artfully distressed pair of £1,500 jeans. This, dear readers, is a serious fash-demic. And just as Balmainia supersize-shouldered jackets adorned every respectable FROWer at fashion week, the more wearable white tux with silver-studded collar has developed quite a following too. Rihanna's decision to wear it for her first public appearance since ‘you know what' just screams of confidence, but, we've also spotted it on Li.Lo and... Louise Redknapp. But who wore it best? Who knows their Parisian rock chick from their elbow? Thoughts below please...
