Cardi B on Balenciaga’s big Hollywood runway

Recently a couple days ago Balenciaga had hosted their fashion runway show in Los Angeles California with few celebrities such as Cardi B, Sexyy Red, Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Teyana Taylor, and other few stars. The fashion show comes on the heels of Balenciaga’s recent its new campaign. A very public declaration of a new era at the house, the campaign is clearly looking to draw a line under what was a disastrous situations of last year 2022 for the brand, when it was accused of sexualizing little kids in an ad campaign.

One of the big stars of that received backlash was Cardi B when she posted her recent pictures on Instagram and she lost over 100,000 followers! Due to the backstory of condoning child trafficking, pedophilia, and, child exploitation. Also Kim Kardashian and sister Kendall Jenner, two sisters that attended to the  show, had lost 300,000 followers and the latter losing even more at 500,000.

Balenciaga did apologize for their actions, but the people aren’t taken this lightly and very disappointed to see star they really like attend to the show.

 Kidman is the only person that came on top, who was named Balenciaga’s new face on the day of the show, and has gotten 5,000 followers. This will lay bare the fickle nature of online social media followers but, it also suggests that the public is not finished with the scandal that happened last year with the brand. Balenciaga may be trying to put on a brace face and move on, but the drop in figures suggests that, for some people at least, the issue is not over yet.
