In the SKIMS mogul’s upload, she is seen sitting on a sofa, posing to show the side profile of her body and holding up a phone with a black case covering her face. Kardashian wore her long, wavy blonde locks parted down the middle for the snap and appeared to be hanging out in her wardrobe.

While racking up millions of likes in the process, Kardashian’s photo also inspired plenty of comments of approval and others condemning her for wearing items from a label currently facing backlash for its latest ads.
“Incredible figure,” wrote one fan, while another conveyed his thoughts with a flurry of heart-eye emojis. Kardashian has been a brand ambassador and die-hard fan of Balenciaga for several years, and her ex West (now legally known as Ye) collaborated with the label on the popular Yeezy Gap line earlier this year. The fashion powerhouse (along with Adidas) severed all ties with Ye following his anti-Semitic comments and controversial statements.
Balenciaga is coming under fire for new ads
In the comments section of Kardashian’s post, many fans urged the mom of four to “shout out Balenciaga” or “stop wearing” clothing from them after a recent ad campaign didn’t sit well with many.
Balenciaga has since apologized for the controversial holiday ad campaign that depicted children holding teddy bears and bags containing fetish gear such as straps, cuffs and fishnets. This then prompted thousands of TikTok, Twitter and Instagram users to use a new hashtag — #cancelBalenciaga this week.
Demna Gvasalia, Georgian fashion designer and creative director of Balenciaga, just released a statement via Instagram on the matter, writing: “We sincerely apologize for any offense our holiday campaign may have caused.” He continued, “Our teddy bear bags should not be featured with children in this campaign. We have immediately removed the campaign from all platforms.”

Some of Kardashian’s most memorable outfits of the year have included Balenciaga designs, including her recent pink cut-out dress worn at the Baby2Baby Gala last week, her bold black dress for the company’s 51st Couture Collection show at Paris Fashion Week. and more.
