Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Justin Bieber were among the celebrities parodied in a new special of The Simpsons inspired by Balenciaga.

The iconic primetime cartoon brought the fashion icons to life in a 10-minute episode released Saturday to coincide with ongoing Paris Fashion Week.

Kim, 40, got such a kick out of being immortalized in Simpsons animation style that she shared a still from the episode on her Instagram Stories on Saturday.

‘Show was lit’: Kim Kardashian, 40, shared a still from Saturday’s Balenciaga and Paris Fashion Week Simpsons episode featuring a character dressed like her Met Gala look, except in red

She shared a frame in which several celebrities sat next to the catwalk at a Balenciaga fashion show.

One character was dressed in a distinctive head-to-toe red look that looked identical to Kim’s vibrant Met Gala ensemble, save for color.

At last month’s high-profile fashion event, Kim arrived in a gimp-style black suit with a bondage-inspired mask that completely covered her face.

She paired the eerie all-black ensemble with pointy boots and two long trains chasing her.

The outfit was designed by Balenciaga, who has created many recent looks that she and her estranged husband Kanye West have been wearing in the run-up to the release of his album Donda.

The Simpsons character seemed to suit her perfectly, although the animators added an extra humorous touch by letting the character’s long ponytail shroud the outfit as well.

Though less explicitly coded as Kanye, Kim’s character sits next to someone wearing a thick black motorcycle helmet and a matching motorcycle suit.

The look was reminiscent of a chunky spiked jacket he wore to one of his Donda listening parties while covering his head completely with a black mask.

Later in the Simpson episode, Homer walks the runway in a red Balenciaga puffer coat.

The thick coats were once a staple of Kanye’s style, but are now a less common item for him.

However, he stood out at one of his Donda listening events in a thick red jacket that mirrored Homer’s, as well as matching pants.

The Simpsons also managed to nail Justin Bieber’s usual casual style.

His animated avatar wore a loose-fitting denim jacket with a T-shirt, sweatpants and sneakers, all standard parts of Bieber’s look.

The pop star usually opts for streetwear and often promotes his own clothing label Drew, which is well-tailored to his taste.

Appropriately, he played in a Balenciaga campaign this year.

While Kim, Kanye and Justin were all natural choices for a Balenciaga-themed episode because of their connections to the fashion house, none of them seem to have attended Paris Fashion Week.
