Kim Kardashian and Ciara had two of the most jam-packed schedules at Paris Fashion Week. Not only did they have to attend shows at a neck-breaking pace, but they had to change outfits in between each one. And rather than take the easy road and choose simple, easy-to-pack outfits, the celeb BFFs made sure each outfit would be more memorable than the last. Let’s look at their past few days, shall we?

In her first look, Kim opted for a super-chic all-black ensemble for a quick lunch with Rachel Zoe at L’Avenue in between shows. She paired the sheer top with with a studded, fringed Roberto Cavalli leather skirt and completed the look with lace-up heels. This isn’t as revealing as usual for Kardashian, which is why we’re giving her an air high-five from our desks.
Although her next look is more tame than a certain braless blazer outfit she wore front row at the Lanvin show, Kim sticks to what she knows best in a sheer black lace jumpsuit. She paired the lacy number with a sleek leather jacket and black heels for a front-row seat at the Givenchy show with hubby Kanye West and daughter North West.
In the third noteworthy look above, Kim followed one of her other favorite fashion rules: “dress in all neutrals.” She selected a nude spandex bodysuit and coordinating leggings, which she topped with beige heels and a bejeweled jacket for the Balmain afterparty. We’re definitely loving the jacket, but the rest of the look has editors scratching their heads (and questioning whether she attended a yoga class after the event).

Now on to Ciara, who also opted for daring outfits during her time jetting between shows. Her first look: a snakeskin-printed ruffle dress paired with black strappy heels, worn to the Givenchy show. Between the print and the ruffles there’s a lot to take in.
For Ciara’s next look, she decided to stay casual in a fur-lined vest (a major statement piece), beige knee-high open-toe boots and Karen Walker sunnies while shopping in between shows. And finally, the singer went in a darker direction than her two previous looks with a black-and-blue two-piece pantsuit covered in zippers and safety pins for the Haider Ackermann show. Maybe it’s all that texture happening (hello, millions of safety pins and zippers) or the strange fit of the suit, but this might be our least favorite.
If you are trying to decide whose style wins PFW, we have two final looks for you to consider. (Please reference the final photo, at top.)
Kim made her final statement in Paris in a blush shredded sweat set featuring a turtleneck crop top (When Cara Delevingne rocked this look on the runway at Chanel’s Fall/Winter 2014/15 show, PEOPLE readers gave it a 94 percent “Hot Mess” rating. This is the first time we’ve seen the bold outfit off the runway. So where was she going? To the airport. Obviously.)
On the other hand, Ciara selected a black-and-white asymmetrical Anthony Vaccarello design, paired with a coordinating jacket and backwards snapback cap.
