Kim Kardashian's Balenciaga Leopard Print Coat Is A Cool Weather Vibe, So Here's 6 More Affordable Options

Plus it won’t break the bank.

Kim Kardashian West is in her self-appointed "Balenciaga Era".
In case you've been living under a (proverbial) rock, the reality star has practically been the face for Denma 'no-last-name-required' Gvasalia's haute couture and ready-to-wear designs, stepping out from the Met Gala to the stage of Saturday Night Live and even to her powder room to announce she's passed the baby bar in his creations.
Now, Balenciaga and Kardashian West are taking their relationship to the next level by making it Instagram official with the media mogul appearing in the luxury maison's latest campaign.
Lensed by Stef Mitchell in her beige Calabasas mansion (you know the one North West calls "ugly"), the photographs look like they're almost an archival shot that the star would've already shared to her 284 million Instagram followers.
Because at this stage in the game seeing Kardashian West in Balenciaga isn't surprising, it's expected.

Denma can do no wrong in our eyes, so if he tells us catsuits, socked heels and neon green bags are going to be all the rage for fall, you can be sure that we're listening and taking notes.
