Balenciaga's Fall/Winter 2022 show is perhaps the most talked-about event this fashion month, as Demna's collection reflected on his past traumas of being a refugee, and highlighted the current situation in Ukraine as a result of Russia's invasion with a personal note as well as a T-shirt in the colors of the Ukrainian flag – blue and yellow.

Not only was the show's set-up something out of the ordinary – models walked in the snow behind a 360-degree glass wall – but the VIP guests, too.

Despite her recent love affair with Prada at the label's Fall/Winter 2022 show, Kim Kardashian has stayed loyal to her Balenciaga.

She showed up to the presentation wearing a look straight off the runway, which featured bright yellow Balenciaga logo tape over a tight bodysuit. On her Instagram story, Kardashian documented the process of getting into the look, which literally just involved layering strips of tape all over her body – including both her knife boots as well as an Hourglass bag.

You may be asking how the hell she managed to take the look off because that was all I could think of when I first saw it, and Kardashian revealed that she had to be cut out of the look.

Of course, the star has a habit of keeping and documenting all of her events looks – fans of KUWTK will know she's saved her entire archive, from Met Gala's to Vogue covers – and the Balenciaga tape look is no different.

On her IG story, Kim shared the full outfit after it had been cut off and preserved, hanging in a garment bag with shoes and everything intact. Impressive, if you ask us.

We're not sure what it must have felt like to sit down in a look made entirely out of tape, but we know that Kim Kardashian is no stranger to discomfort. Her 2019 Met Gala dress by Thierry Mugler was so tight she could barely breathe – nor use the bathroom – and her 2020 look by Demna and Balenciaga featured a whole bodysuit that covered the face (and inspired plenty of Halloween costumes).

As Kim Kardashian continues her fashion journey, we can't wait to see her in plenty more looks from the label – especially when we get a BTS look.
