Kendall Jenner and fellow Balmain for H&M recruits models Joan SmallsBella HadidJourdan DunnAlessandra Ambrosio and Gigi Hadid took to the catwalk to display the highly buzzed-about collaboration, with KJ herself opening the show. Also on deck, Karlie Kloss took a break from her busy NYU class load to lead the finale charge at the top-tier (and clearly supermodel-packed) presentation.

Bear in mind, we've already snuck a peek at every single item in the collection, plus many of these models have rocked the collaboration's edgy threads for the metro-inspired ads

In fact, Kendall, Gigi, Joan, Bella, Alessandra and Jourdan all walked for Balmain's spring 2016 show during Paris Fashion Week earlier this month. But seeing all of the A-list models and each Balmain for H&M look compiled into one succinct runway show made for a truly unforgettable formal debut for the clothing line.

"I think the concept for H&M x Balmain is putting the couture in the stores. It's a really rich and strong collection that is infused with the Balmain DNA," Balmain mastermind Olivier Rousteing told Yahoo! Style earlier this week. "It's richness and French, and it's inspired by pop culture and the glamour that Balmain is known for…while keeping the quality of course!"

Appearing on the red carpet alongside Kendall, Gigi and Jourdan, Kylie Jenner made a cameo at the New York City presentation, as did Lewis Hamilton, Diane Kruger, Ellie Goulding, Coco Rocha and more. Plus, there was one more surprise appearance on the high-profile runway (which was livestreamed across the globe on Periscope) via The Backstreet Boys, who performed post-show on the multi-level runway stage. Immediately after their performance, the stage opened up to guests and the after-party ensued right on the spot (whew, what a show!).

Ready to shop the line yet? Well, you'll still have to wait—these threads still don't hit stores until Nov. 5, and even then we're not expecting the designer-approved goods to sit on shelves for long.
