The occasion featured a star-studded guest list, including Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow and Emma Roberts, who slipped on sleek pumps and sandals with an array of light-catching Swarovski crystal jewelry. Meanwhile, Ashley Graham, Aweng Chuol, Georgia May Jagger and more stars fully embraced the brand’s signature glamour with crystal-embellished boots and slick high heels.
While arriving to the 5th Avenue store, Kardashian posed in a slick pair of Paris Texas sandals, which featured a mirrored silver texture with transparent toe straps. The pair added a sharp shine to her high-waisted $48 Swarovski x Skims briefs, which were layered beneath a glittering crop top and miniskirt crafted from mixed Swarovski crystals.

Gwyneth Paltrow opted for minimal glamour for the occasion, stepping out in a sharp white leather pair of Ferragamo’s Eva pumps — complete with pointed toes and angular heels. The pair added a stark complement to her white bustier dress, which earned a gleaming finish from clear Swarovski crystal necklaces and a matching Swarovski x Skims body chain.
Billy Porter slipped on white leather boots with squared heels and toes, which smoothly streamlined his white knit tweed belted cot and matching trousers. The set was further elevated with glittering Swarovski jewelry — including a statement necklace and star-shaped cocktail rings.
Emma Roberts gleamed in glossy black patent leather platform sandals, complete with soaring stiletto heels. The sky-high pair smoothly complemented her embellished black $198 Swarovski x Skims bodysuit and a draped blazer. For a glamorous finish, the “American Horror Story” star finished her look with sparkling Swarovski x Skims body chains, as well as Swarovski’s layered crystal necklaces and dangling drop earrings.
Swarovski’s collaboration with Skims is now live on its website. The brand’s new Fifth Avenue store is now open at 680 Fifth Avenue in New York City.
