Kim Kardashian received praise from social media for putting the former mining community of Barnsley "on the map" by sporting the name of the town on her bodysuit.

On Tuesday, The SKIMS founder and mogul caught people's attention when she was spotted wearing the outfit during an appearance at the Balenciaga store in Paris with her daughter North, 9.

On the back of the jumpsuit, a list of place names and dates can be seen with Barnsley inscribed at the top of the jumpsuit's backside.

In a DailyMail report, the locations listed on the back of Kardashian's body suit were a list of tour dates for a fake band called Speedhunters.

Balenciaga created the outfit and theoretical band in 2018 and had previously revealed that the tour dates are an ode to the birthdays of the company's team members.
