Kim Kardashian, Hailey Baldwin spark catsuit trend


’Tis the season for spandex.

Just in time for the holidays, stars are swapping their sparkling party frocks for second-skin catsuits.

At Art Basel Miami Beach last week, Hailey Bieber looked like a walking bouquet in a colorful floral version of the look from Saint Laurent — a far cry from the slouchy suiting and streetwear she typically favors. Cardi B flaunted her famous curves in a quilted, sequined Chanel onesie modeled after one of the fashion house’s famous tweed jackets, and Taylor Swift sported a lacy one by Sarah Regensburger to perform at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Arguably leading the catsuit craze is London designer Richard Quinn, who regularly includes gimp masks and unitards in his collections and is a favorite of fashion-forward celebs, including “Queen’s Gambit” star Anya Taylor-Joy.

At the British Fashion Awards in November, Priyanka Chopra sported a flashy floral jumpsuit by Quinn, and 53-year-old Kylie Minogue proved that PYTs aren’t the only ones who can pull off the look — she rocked one onstage flanked with similarly clad backup dancers.

For Fall 2021, Quinn even skipped his usual runway show in favor of a latex-laden film inspired by Michelle Pfeiffer’s 1992 take on Catwoman; with Zoë Kravitz set to play the sexy villain in “The Batman” next spring, the timing was spot on.

And no celeb loves cosplaying Catwoman more than Kim Kardashian, who sported a whole slew of Balenciaga one-pieces in recent months, including two in hot pink for her “SNL” hosting debut.

Balenciaga a bit out of your budget? Don’t fret, the shapewear mogul is shilling similar velvet onesies for $98 as part of her latest Skims collection.

But leave it to Rihanna to really raise the bar on how racy this all-in-one outfit can get; her Savage X Fenty line’s take on the trend is sheer, crotchless and comes with a giant midriff-baring cutout. Priced at $90, the piece is available in both hunter green and red — how festive!

After all, who needs Christmas stockings when you’ve got bodystockings?
