As far as Paris Fashion Week is concerned, no one loves an after-party quite as much as Balmain's Olivier Rousteing. His seasonal get-downs — always held after the label's ready-to-wear shows in plush, Instagram-friendly locations — serve as a comprehensive who's-who of Rousteing's #BalmainArmy. Last season's festivities featured an especially deep guest list, with a roster of "Instagirls" — including Gigi HadidKendall JennerKarlie Kloss and Joan Smalls — wearing pieces straight off the runway, as well as their wigs from the show earlier in the day. 

As a whole, Balmain's spring 2017 experience was on the tamer end of the spectrum. The clothing itself was the most relaxed (read: least bottle service-ready) we've seen from the brand in recent seasons. That energy carried over to Thursday's after-party, where there was nary a Hadid nor Kloss in sight. There were, however, two Kardashians and a West, the latter of whom exercised his creative liberties with the dress code and wore sweatpants with an embellished, shearling-lined Gucci jacket. Kim and Kourtney Kardashian certainly made up for it, though — with Kourtney in a triangle bra top and Kim in a (presumably very heavy) gilded wrap dress. When in Rome, right?
