Yesterday marked Marie Claire’s second annual Image Makers Awards. The awards highlight those behind the scenes in the realms of fashion and beauty — i.e. the people who quite literally create the images we see.
Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing received the “Icon Designer” award and friend and muse Kylie Jenner was on deck to present it and be Rousteing's date. She naturally wore a Balmain design. Rousteing is constantly making stuff for the Kardashians/Wests/Jenners; he designed Kimye’s Met Gala looks, has featured Kendall in his campaigns and is BFFs with Kris Jenner. So it makes perfect sense that Kylie would come out to support. She wore a shredded purple gown with some strategic cut-outs. Highly dramatic.
