KIM Kardashian has come under fire for wearing what appears to be Balenciaga after previously condemning the brand.
The Hulu star was pictured on Saturday she and her eldest son Saint, seven, paid a visit to the Skirball Cultural Center in Beverly Hills.

Kim, 42, wore a black velvet dress with a high neck and long sleeves, teamed with pointy boots.
The Skims founder slicked her hair back into a high ponytail and framed her features with muted makeup.
Saint, meanwhile, looked stylish in a black Nike hoodie teamed with black pants, Nike sneakers, and a red cap.
The duo looked were joined by security as they left the museum, which aims to educate visitors about the history of Jewish people.
However, Kim’s fans have noticed that her fit for the day looked to be from fashion house Balenciaga, which Kim said she was “disgusted and outraged” by after their controversial campaigns featuring children.
One of the mother-of-four‘s followers reposted the pics on Reddit, with the caption: “The circle is back to wearing Balenciaga after scandal, Kim Kardashian… wore Balenciaga yesterday.”
Many others were quick to criticize the star for what looked like a full Balenciaga fit.
One person commented: “They had their winter show yesterday. All of them are being paid. It’s part of the campaign.”
“Money can buy anyone, even a billionaire lol,” another later added.
Another incensed forum user wrote: “I knew by that p*ss poor statement she released that she wasn’t going to end her relationship with them.
“Kim is about her money; plain and simple and if it don’t make dollars to her, it don’t make sense.”
They summarized: “She doesn’t give a damn about ethics, morals or none of that.”
A fourth person stated: “She doesn’t give a f*ck as long as she gets her cheque.”
Many celebrities and consumers spoke out about Balenciaga last year after the luxury company ran an ad featuring children holding bears, which wore BDSM accessories.
Kim, who repped the brand, released a statement that said:
“As a mother of four, I have been shaken by the disturbing images.
“The safety of children must be held with the highest regard and any attempts to normalize child abuse of any kind should have no place in our society — period.”
She continued: “I appreciate Balenciaga’s removal of the campaigns and apology. In speaking with them, I believe they understand the seriousness of the issue and will take the necessary measures for this to never happen again.”
After her statement was condemned for not promising to cut ties with the house, she released another.
The later piece read: “As for my future with Balenciaga, I am currently re-evaluating my relationship with the brand, basing it off their willingness to accept accountability for something that should have never happened to begin with — & the actions I am expecting to see them take to protect children.”
Amid the drama, Kim was slammed for seemingly standing by the brand after the reality star shared a photo of herself sporting pieces from the Adidas x Balenciaga collaboration.
