at 10:06 am | By

Everyone’s favorite girl squad (Kendall, Gigi, Karlie) modeled the Balmain x H&M Collection Launch last night, but the cherry on top was the surprise performance by everyone’s favorite ’90s boyband (Backstreet Boys), culminating in the hottest NYFW moment and some major fangirling.

Olivier Rousteing‘s Balmain x H&M runway show last night in New York was really larger than life and marks a new, fresh relationship for Howie Dorough, Nick CarterA. J. McLeanKevin Richardson and Brian Littrell with the fashion world.

Their moves, their clothes, and their music were all on point:

As for members of the lucky audience who got to witness the spectacle, Kendall’s sis Kylie Jenner was of course in attendance, as well as Diane KrugerRosie Huntington-Whiteley, Ellie Goulding, Martha Hunt, Zachary Quinto, and Alexa Chung.
