Victoria Beckham kicked off her Paris Fashion Week show on Friday, with support from her many A-list pals.
And leading the glamorous arrivals was Kim Kardashian who slipped into a lilac satin gown with a scooped neckline.
The Reality TV star, 42, accessorised with layers of diamond jewellery, seven years after she was robbed at gunpoint during the event.
In October 2016, criminals stole a jewellery box worth €6 million ($6.7 million/ £5.24 million) and a ring worth €4 million ($4.5 million/ £3.5 million) after breaking into her hotel room and holding a gun to her head.
Kim has since spoke of her hesitance over wearing expensive jewellery and said ‘no expensive items ever come’ into her home.

Stepping out to Victoria’s show this week, she teamed her elegant gown with a pair of nude, barely-there heels.
Kim styled her hair straight and topped off her look with bronzed makeup and a chunky silver ring.
She was joined by her mum, Kris Jenner who mirrored her look in a black satin gown, layering over a leather biker jacket.
In 2021, Kim opened up about how she is a ‘completely different person’ after being robbed of millions, at gunpoint, during Paris Fashion Week in October 2016.
‘As far as jewelry, if I’m wearing something, it’s borrowed. It’s fake,’ she told Andy Cohen during the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reunion.
She added: ‘I can’t sleep if I have jewellery in my safe, or money, or anything at my house. I just don’t live my life like that.’
In addition to doubling her personal security, she has openly spoken about being less flashy and her hesitance over wearing expensive jewellery post-robbery.
‘On a positive note, I’m a completely different person because of it, in the best way,’ she reflected. ‘[Before the robbery], I had to have the coolest car, the best rims, the best outfit and I thought that I was the s**t because of that. I thought that made me.’

She continued: ‘The things I valued before that happened were genuinely completely different than what I value now. It’s fun to get dressed up and all this, but like, [material] things don’t make me.’
The traumatic incident also ‘significantly changed’ her and sister Khloé Kardashian’s relationship.
While noting ‘Kim was obviously a great sister prior,’ the Good American founder said there has been a ‘significant shift in how’ Kim ‘caters to her relationships and the attentiveness that she now gives her family as opposed to red carpets or things.’
‘I mean, our relationship has significantly changed,’ Khloé noted.
During an appearance on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman, Kim admitted to fearing her older sister Kourtney would return and ‘find [her] dead’ in their room at the Hôtel de Pourtalès.
‘I kept on thinking about Kourtney, I kept on thinking, like, she’s gonna come home and I’m gonna be dead in the room and she’s gonna be traumatised for the rest of her life,’ recalled Kim tearfully.’
She claimed that a gun was pointed directly at her as thoughts regarding the fate of her sister’s safety flooded her brain.
Kim and Kourtney traveled to Paris, France together in October of 2016 to attend Paris Fashion Week.
The KKW Beauty founder noted that Kourtney had ‘packed all [of Kim’s] jewelry’ for the trip, which was something she had ‘never done before.’
Kim explained that on the evening of the robbery Kourtney left their hotel with the sisters’ sole bodyguard, which meant Kim was completely alone in their suite.
Then around three o’clock in the morning, Kardashian remembered hearing ‘stomping up the stairs’ that sounded as if a group of people were inching closer and closer to her room.
Kim told David Letterman that something about the noise made her instantly feel as though ‘someone was there to get [her],’ so she decided to dial for help.
A gang of intruders violently made their way into her hotel room and specifically demanded that she fork over a ring that her then husband Kanye West had purchased for her.
As she continued to recall the terrifying event for Letterman, Kim broke down in tears.
She explained that, at the time of the robbery, she was only wearing a robe and one of the intruders aggressively ‘grabbed her.’
‘I was like, ‘OK, this is the time I’m gonna get raped. Like deal, this is gonna happen, just prepare yourself,” recalled Kim to Letterman.
‘So, I did and then — I don’t know why I’m crying, I’ve talked about this before — and then he tied me up with handcuffs and zip-ties and then duct tape and duct-taped my mouth and my eyes.’
Thankfully, no one was physically harmed during the course of the robbery, but Kim said the entire experience made her ‘really paranoid’ for a year’s time.
She would have ‘half a dozen’ security guards posted up about her Calabasas home at all times.

The assailants were, eventually, arrested in January of 2017 and Kim learned that they were watching her every move ‘for two years leading up until this moment.’
She alleged that the robbers had attempted to rob her on prior occasions, but their plans were thwarted due to the presence of Kim’s then husband Kanye.
‘I didn’t know that they had someone at the elevators, someone at the front, someone that moved the camera, someone that broke the door, someone in the getaway car.
‘There was a whole team of people that had planned this,’ she concluded.
