High Fashion Faceoff: Kylie Jenner's Balmain Skirt Is Ripped from the Runway

03/29/2016 at 08:50 AM ET

While Kendall may be the Jenner family’s runway regular, Kylie can certainly hold her own.

The 18-year-old showed off her own take on Balmain’s Spring/Summer 2016 netted, cerulean blue midi skirt while out to dinner with boyfriend Tyga at Il Ciello Italian Restaurant in Beverly Hills, Monday.

The embellished – and see-through – skirt made its debut last fall during Paris fashion week on Dutch model Doutzen Kroes. Kroes, who wore a burnt orange bodysuit on the runway, was decked out in some major accessories that included chandelier earrings and a wide belt in the same blue shade.

Jenner let the standout piece speak for itself, pairing it with a nude turtleneck bodysuit and matching, strappy heels. The makeup maven – who kept her beauty look understated as well – brought in a little extra color via her complementary Hermès purse.

As always, the fashionista kept fans up-to-date on her #ootd on social media, Instagramming and Snapchatting close-up looks at the skirt’s netting and her perennially plump pout.

The KarJenner family’s relationship with Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing is well-documented, as many of the famous women have served as muses for the designer. In fact, Kylie has even appeared in a campaign for the line – alongside big sis Kendall, of course.

Which interpretation of the skirt is better: Kylie and Doutzen’s?

It’s not cute, but really fug ly. See what happens when you let these people wear the balmain brand, it stoops to very low levels

Really ugly! Who would wear this and where would they wear it? It’s ridiculous-looking.

Norma on

the skirt is butt ugly…but I guess it got her the attention that she obviously craves.

Loulou on

It is disturbing to me that she moves as a doll … She certainly has reality issues

Reminds me of those old car seat “massage” covers.

Just wrap a hammock around your waist and save thousands. Now I’m going to go kick myself for wasting time reading this article….carry on.

She needed to add the blue belt with it to make it look finished. Looks better on the runway & really needs to stay there. :)

It really needed the belt. And to be on anyone but Kylie.

They are so ridiculous. You could put a Balmain label on a dog tu rd and they would wear it.
