PARIS — Le Grand Hotel, that paragon of 19th-century Haussmann reconstruction, hosted the runway show for Olivier Rousteing’s Spring 2015 collection for Balmain. On the afternoon Sharam Diniz closed the show to the booming playback of Michael Jackson’s “Scream,” a soundtrack that pegged the opulent and very frequently sexy evening wear to the mid 1990s. This was no mere throwback, however as the cast of models that also included Binx and Jessica Miller embodied the very contemporary concerns on diversity that the designer put forth in the advertising campaign (also featuring Binx).
