Fans poke fun at Kim Kardashian’s ‘Alien’-esque helmet couture

Earth to planet Kim.

Kim Kardashian wasn’t joking when she described her style inspiration as “future alien Barbie” — showing up at the Balenciaga dinner in Paris Wednesday night with a black helmet resembling the xenomorph creatures in 1979’s “Alien.”

Pairing her long-sleeved black sequin Balenciaga gown with the full-face helmet, the reality star — who walked the designer’s Paris Fashion Week catwalk alongside Naomi Campbell, Dua Lipa and Nicole Kidman — sat down to dinner as she posed in the unusual headgear.

Lots of fans compared Kim to a woman wearing a black gown and xenomorph-like helmet, and fans went wild — with Diet Prada and High Snobiety both reposting the hilarious side-by-side photo.

“@demna really may have had ‘Alien’ on the mood board for @balenciaga Fall 2022 couture. Who wore it better? [alien emoji] or @kimkardashian?⁠” High Snobiety posted.

“Somewhere the Costume Designer for Alien is thinking … ‘I did it first Balenciaga!'” one fan commented on the post, while another added “ALIENCIAGA.”

Over at Diet Prada, one fan quipped, “I am convinced Balenciaga is a social experiment to see how ridiculous they can be but still get people to wear it.”

Meanwhile, “The Kardashians” star was definitely in on the joke, posting a photo of herself holding a fork up to the alien-esque mask while her uneaten food sat on the table.

“How do you eat with the mask on, Kimberly!?” wrote Kourtney Kardashian’s BFF Sarah Howard, with tons of followers weighing in on the comment.

“It’s called the mask diet,” one fan said, while another added “it’s a vibe, Sarah.”

The Skims founder certainly delivered some memorable looks while in Paris this week, whether it was bringing back Madonna’s infamous breast-bearing dress by Jean Paul Gaultier or wearing matching nose rings with her daughter, North.

We’re not sure how Kardashian can top this “alien Barbie” moment, but have a feeling she’s got something up her Balenciaga sleeves for the future.
