Begun in 1945, Balmain first gained notoriety for his "Jolie Madame" style which gleamed like a beacon of femininity in stark contrast to the utilitarian vestiges of the time. Pierre Balmain wanted to dress women "in the right look for the right moment" and it is with this sentiment that Olivier Rousteing has been running the brand since 2011. Expect sensual lines, fitted bodices, and figure-hugging silhouettes with a modern twist and trend-inspiring details. For your next cocktail dress, trust the brand that's dressing celebrities, actresses, and royalty alike in show-stopping looks.
