While Gucci had a standout 2015, creating custom ‘it’ bags and bringing Alessandro Michele to the forefront of fashion, Balmain was the year’s social media superstar. Olivier Rousteing and his supermodel squad took over Instagram, H&M and red carpets, especially if a Kardashian was somehow involved. Look back at Balmain’s 10 best social media moments in 2015 to prepare for even more leather and glitter in 2016.
The internet went insane over the H&M launch, whether it was commentary on Kendall Jenner’s modern Macarena or the immediate sell-out of the collaboration.
The Backstreet Boys came back looking as chic as possible for former boy banders, redefining boys to men.
Jennifer Lopez, who seems to be Benjamin Button-ing, has worn many skin-tight Balmain dresses and body suits this past year. Mr. Rousteing made a splash on social media with his cleverly contoured cheekbones.

Cara Delevingne went ultra-feminine in this shimmery look that would be perfect on New Year’s Eve.
Meryl Streep opted for a black jumpsuit that would be equally at home on a Kardashian.

Bad gal RiRi might not have released an album this year (although there’s still time for an ANTI appearance), but she certainly rocked it style-wise.
