Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain army was not short of top recruits for the French label’s fall-winter 2016 show presented during Paris Fashion Week. Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid took to the runway in looks one and two respectively, and they each wore wigs—switching hair colors. The duo wore blue suede looks, bodycon and cinched at the waist with thigh-high boots for a sex kitten look. What followed was even more form-fitting silhouettes (and top models) with exaggerated hips and corset style bodices.

It’s all about texture and embellishment for the Balmain woman—from a tassel adorned dress worn by Josephine Skriver to ruffle and lace pants modeled by Karlie Kloss.“More is more” appears to be the motto for the season. Taking a break from pastel pinks and blues, Rousteing offered graphic styles of black, white and gold. Gowns with cut-out shoulders and bold stripes covered by gold embroideries were pure opulence.
