Sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner are starring together in the high fashion campaign of Balmain. The stylish siblings are the new faces of the fashion house’s autumn/winter 2015 collection. They join siblings Joan and Erika Smalls, Gigi and Bella Hadid and Armando and Fernando Cabral for the French fashion house’s new ad, according to Hello.
It is the Jenner sisters’ first major high fashion campaign together. Balmain unveiled the images of the “Keeping up with the Kardashians” stars forming a stunning sister duo on the brand’s Instagram. In the ad, Kylie and Kendall pose locked in each other’s gaze, both wearing high-sparkle designs by the label, plus, bold smoky eyes.
Kendall and Kylie show off their enviable figures in creative director Olivier Rousteing’s edgy designs. They have been captured by famous fashion photographer Mario Sorrenti. This is the first time that Kylie has worked with Balmain; Kendall has already worked with Rousteing on several occasions.
“Starting with a determination to once again focus on the beauty of an intimate connection, my team and I quickly concluded that a celebration of the unique and unconditional love of siblings is a natural progression from the spirit of last season,” said Rousteing in a statement released on Thursday.
In-demand model Kendall has become a fixture in Rousteing's "Balmain Army" and has rocked the label’s runway in various fashion weeks. Besides, the sisters have already proven themselves as fashion forces to be reckoned with. Kendall and Kylie have proven their design credentials also by designing a capsule line for Topshop.
Their designs sold out barely 24 hours after becoming available online. The sisters also have another clothing line for PacSun. This campaign also marks a high-fashion debut for Kylie, who has not done any modeling gigs, except for her brother-in-law Kanye West’s Adidas show early this year.
Rousteing is a close friend to the Kardashian-Jenner family. Big sister Kim Kardashian West and her rapper husband have fronted the spring/summer 2015 ads for the high fashion label also shot by Sorrenti. The racy ads caused a stir last year.
