Who Wore This Balmain Blazer Better: Kris Jenner Or Justin Bieber?
We all know Kris Jenner isn't a regular mom, she's a cool mom! But did she take her status too far? On Saturday June 27th, Kris was spotted front row at Balmain's Spring 2015 men's show in Paris. She was wearing black jeans, black boots and a black shirt, paired with a very familiar-looking black blazer with an embroidered gold dragon. Know who else wore the exact same blazer? None other than Justin Bieber. He wore the Balmain blazer first to the 2015 Met Gala back in May. Let me just remind you that the Biebz is 21 years old, and momma bear Kris Jenner is 59. Did Kris forget her age (again)? Or do you think it's cool that these two wore the same blazer (cause, like, whatever!). Who do you think wore it better? Let us know in the comments below!

Shop Leather Blazers Just Like Kim Kardashian’s Favorite Balmain One
From $22 sunglasses and Nike sneakers to crop tops with pencil skirts and her little sister's bikini, is there anything that Kim Kardashian won't wear? Ever since the reality star linked up with fashion rebel Kanye West, Kim's style skills has gone through the roof — and on the cover of Vogue. Gone are the days of bodycon dresses and false eyelashes — okay, Kim probably rocks the false eyelashes still. But we can't deny that Kim's look is so on point these days. She's more daring in her choices, which always perfectly flatter her figure and look. Case in point: her Balmain leather blazer. Who says the one and only type of leather jacket you should own should be moto-style? Nobody. The idea of a leather blazer updates such a classic garment. And while most of us can't afford the real designer piece. We found a few other styles that are similar and much more friendly towards your budget. Check out our slideshow to see which blazer you'll be adding to your work wardrobe.

Pierre Balmain Is Here! (The Fashion Line, Not The Designer)
Before there was Balmain, the runway standout of the decade, all leather, spikes and sharp shoulders, there was Pierre Balmain, a French couturier famous in the '40s, whose fashion equals were Dior and Balenciaga. Known for opulence in ball gowns and the like, his big focus was on cut and movement. When Christophe Decarnin revived the bankrupt line in 2005, celebs and fashion editors got on board. The only catch? Prices range from around $990 to $14,000--not exactly recession- friendly. Enter 2012. Pierre Balmain (the fashion line) is born: a diffusion of all of the edgy looks without the jaw-dropping prices. You don't have to have your publicist call their publicist either: it's sold at Nordstrom. (more…)

Starting Now: Shop 85% Off Balmain At The Outnet’s Pop-Up Sale
When it comes to online shopping, The Outnet definitely knows how to create frenzy. Back in April, shoppers pulled all-nighters to nab something from their $1 designer sale, and today they're holding a Balmain pop-up sale at up to 85% off. Balmain, a runway favorite among A-listers like Beyonce, Kate Moss, and Rihanna is still pretty expensive, even at 85% off-- but because this is such a rare occasion, it might be worth the splurge. You only have seven days to snap up one of these Balmain pieces, but we suggest you buy them now because they're likely to sell out within hours. When these Balmain buckle boots ($642, down from $1,025) came strutting down the runway, nearly every fashion editor died with delight, and featured them in their magazines. If you've just gotta have them, now's your chance. Snag this Balmain chain belt ($303, down from $1,010. Like a classic Chanel chain strap belt, it always looks chic--and you can wear it 'til you're old, and pass it on as an heirloom. Balmain brought back the strong shoulder--be a part of the '80s remake with this Balmain Wool Tuxedo jacket ($1,992.50, down from $3,985) that is ridiculously sharp looking--if you happen to have some extra dough lying around.
