Why this look on Kim Kardashian is one of her best

It’s been a busy month or so for me with work and kid’s birthdays and I’m slowly making my way through my archive of photographs.

There’s been so much commentary in the media on Kim’s pregnancy wardrobe.  That’s fairly normal because of our (me included) celebrity obsessed culture.  Where I draw the line though is the continually harassment of Kim over her weight gain.  I can only imagine how stressful it must be to have the world trying to guess how many kilograms you have put on.

I try to keep blog about the clothes that celebrities are wearing and whether I think that they suit their body size and shape.  And I’ve said it before, I have always been a fan of Kim’s body because I think that she represents more of us, normal folk, compared to the model, skinny-pregnancy celebrities.

Having said all of that, I wish that Kim would pay more attention to what she is wearing and realise that it isn’t always possible to wear non-maternity clothes as maternity.  They don’t fit well and must surely be uncomfortable.  Maybe as Kim’s pregnancy progresses, she’ll be like the rest of us and look for stylist comfortable clothes.

Anyway, here are some photographs of Kim at the red carpet premiere of a movie that she is in.  And I may be in the minority, but I love this look!  Kim is sophisticated in this outfit.

  •  The top (dress?) is very detailed with lace, beading and sequins.  But is is very modest and is a great cut and shape for Kim’s figure.  The v-neckline elongates Kim’s figure and the empire cut waist emphasises the distinction between bust and bump (always a good thing).  The only change I would possible make to this top is to get rid of the length at the back.  Yes, it is a red carpet event but surely this top isn’t meant to be worn this long normally, right?  
  • The leather pants are fabulous!  Enough said.  
  • I love that with the busy-ness of the outfit, Kim has kept her makeup and hairstyle simple.  Her sleek ponytail means that attention is not detracted from the outfit.  
  • Her shoes, as always, are lovely.  I want them.  

Do you know how Kim Kardashian could have improved her look?

Let me start by saying that there are a lot of things that I actually like about Kim Kardashian’s outfit, but I’ll get into those later.

The Not-So-Good

First the not-so-good. Where Kim has gone wrong is that the dress has shortened the length of her torso and increased its width.  Not a good combination, ever.  There’s too much going on in her midsection with the pattern of the sheer (again) bodice and then the detail of the feathered skirt. It’s just given her the worst shape. By having two completely different materials (the sheer vs the feathers), it’s cut her torso in half and the eye just immediately focuses on that junction.  Imagine the difference if the dress had been made of one material…it would floooooow.

The Good

For the good.  I love love love the leather pants under the skirt.  I really think that it’s chic and ‘right now’.  Plus the cut of these leather pants is perfect for her body and the right length as well.  Plus there is no embellishment or ‘extras’ like sheer panels, or baggy in the worst places.  And shoes, well I love most of Kim’s shoes and these are no exception.  They are simple and gorgeous.

The Rest

And finally, hair and makeup.  As usual, impeccable.

Final Note

Is it just me, or has Kim looked a little down in all of the photographs of her lately?  I would love to see a smile.  Kanye doesn’t look too happy either (but that may be because he realised that those awful white shoes are completely and utterly wrong with what he is wearing)

Petra Ecclestone does not let pregnancy get in the way of fashion

Petra Ecclestone stepped out in skin tight leather pants that show off her still impossibly skinny legs.  She teamed it with a sheer shirt, fur, and expensive beaded boots.  This is a pretty standard look for Petra who has not changed her pregnancy style at all – which is helped by the fact that she has really only put on a bump this pregnancy.
