Well, the high-low love-in has come full circle. Earlier this morning,Kim Kardashian revealed Balmain‘s Spring 2015 ads, in which she stars alongside husband Kanye West. The photo features the couple, all in black, pre-lip lock, with Kardashian’s hands tightly clutched around West’s face, her diamond ring in full view. As much as it pains me to make this comparison, there’s something very Taylor and Burton about the intense, sexually-charged pose.
The ad comes as no surprise, with both West and Kardashian both being oft-documented Balmain enthusiasts and friends of designer Olivier Rousteing. Kardashian notably wore Balmain to her wedding party as well as her Parisian bachelorette. Stay tuned as more shots are sure to be revealed over at @KimKardashian.
UPDATE: More images have been released, as well as a photography credit for Mario Sorrenti, the talent behind many of Balmain’s advertising campaigns. The images are ,in fact, for Balmain’s Spring 2015 menswear campaign.
