This catsuit, coat and lace-up boots ensemble is an archival piece from late iconic designer Azzedine Alaïa’s Fall 1991 collection, as Kim’s caption implies with that Clueless quote.
Other models who did the catwalk for this feline collection included Azzedine Alaïa’s all-time muse Naomi Campbell, who also modeled a black sheer bodysuit from the 1991-1992 ready to wear collection.
And guess what?
Kim also wore this archival bodysuit this week.
Continuing with her Clueless movie theme, she captioned this post “An a whatta?” – the robber’s response to Cher’s “… this is an Alaïa.”
The reality TV star has been digging into fashion archives quite often this year, showing fans something a little different from her usual Yeezy aesthetic.
Last month she wore two different Thierry Mugler architectural archival pieces to the “Thierry Mugler: Couturissime” exhibition. But those did not make it onto her Instagram – to keep them away from Missguided spies perhaps?
And then she scored a Mugler hatrick when she wore that black “backwards straps” dress that got everyone talking (and double-tapping) from Thierry Mugler’s Spring 1998 collection.
We think her new BFF and celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton might have a little something to do with Mrs West’s ’90s couture revival. We can’t wait to see which designer she pulls out next from the archives.
