Beyoncé fans sent the fashion world into a shimmery silver craze when the “Cuff It” singer requested that BeyHive devotees wear chrome to her concert as a birthday gift. Kim Kardashian (who was in attendance at the Grammy winner’s celebratory September 4th show—alongside, among others, Jeff Bezos) is making sure the trend won’t conclude with the Renaissance tour. The socialite and entrepreneur just put her stamp of approval on the shiny shade as a decorative accent.
The Skims cofounder created a minute-long video for her 9.3 million TikTok followers in the platform’s viral “of course” format. She tours viewers through the headquarters of SKKN, her skin care company, where a life-size, chrome-colored version of her actual brain sits on display on her office desk. Back in December, Kardashian posted a video to Instagram showing off the 3D model. The conversation piece was a gift she received from the medical company Prenuvo, with whom she’s partnered in the past. Now we know where she keeps the offbeat present.
Using chrome tones to decorate seems to be a family affair, as the reality TV star’s firstborn child, North West, has also hopped on the trend. The 10-year-old posted a video showing off her new glittery set of diamond grills to TikTok last night. And just yesterday, West’s dad, rapper Kanye West, posted a video to Instagram showing off his own new grills in the same color.
Nothing about resplendent silver screams second place, if you ask us. Fans of the chrome trend looking to add a little sheen to their interior spaces à la Kim Kardashian can weave it in in bits and pieces with items like the below selection.
