French fashion house and frequent Kardashian designer of choice, Balmain, released their fall/winter 2015 campaign which featured three pairs of famously stunning sisters. Photographed by Balmain favorite Mario Sorrenti, the inspiration for the shoot was the work of German-Austrailian 1950/60’s photographer Helmut Newton from the posing to the makeup (minus the nudity).
In what some are calling “the most epic social media stunt ever” due to the models’ social media followings, the ads are receiving widespread praise across the internet. (And not just from their #ProudMamas).
The spread features Kylie and Kendall Jenner (not surprising as the Kardashian/Jenner/West clan is an Olivier Rousteng favorite), Bella and Gigi Hadid (their mother is Yolanda Foster of the Real Housewives franchise) and Joan and Erika Smalls.
While I love the sister duos they chose, I’ve rounded up some other famous sister pairings I’d like to see if they decide to reboot the idea in the coming months.
BEYONCÉ & SOLANGE
These songstress sisters would be perfect for Balmain due to their strength and support of each other. Other than their impeccable fashion choices, you know Solange has got Bey’s back by the way she went after Jay Z in that infamous elevator. Though we never found out what he did, with Solange’s reaction you know he deserved it.
MARY-KATE & ASHLEY
The mogul twins have largely disappeared from the spotlight to build their own fashion empire. Although they chose not to be a part of the Full House reunion series on Netflix, what is a better way to get back in the public eye than with a Balmain spread? As long as it isn’t directly competing with their own company of course.
DUCHESS KATE & PIPPA
In my probably not by a long shot and over Queen Elizabeth’s dead body nomination is our favorite fashionable sisters from across the pond: The Middletons. Kate has made a name for herself in the fashion world ever since stepping out on Prince William’s arm when they first started dating. Pippa has become a fashion icon in her own right when her butt stole the show at the royal wedding. These two ooze class and grace which is perfect for Balmain.
