Kim Kardashian in Dolce&Gabbana on The Tonight Show

Posted on October 31, 2013

What a klassy lady:

Kim Kardashian makes an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” in a Dolce&Gabbana lace dress.

Dolce&Gabbana Fall 2013 Collection/Model: Sung Hee

Dolce&Gabbana Macramé Lace Dress

Because nothing says chic like black underthings with a white lace dress. Granted, the runways do tend to be filled with see-through dresses this season, but black under white is never going to look anything but tacky to us.

And are we the only ones freaked out by how much she’s trying to turn herself into Beyonce on the hair and makeup front? It’s creepy. Like Single White Female creepy, except only one of them’s white.  She looks like one of those makeup artists you see on YouTube who do eerie facial impressions of stars by slathering on tons of makeup. Look at how different her face was in May, compared to now. Everything from the skin tone to the contouring to the hair and lipstick colors has changed to make her look more like Beyonce.

Don’t get us wrong; we don’t mind her changing up her look, but this looks way too much like drag impersonation to us, rather than an evolution in her style. It’s weird and smacks too much of wannabe-ism.

    THANK YOU! I’ve been freaked out by the pretender-to-the-throne-of-King-Bey thing since she was photographed in Paris and I actually thought it *was* Beyonce. My theory: it’s one of ‘Ye’s “performance art” pranks. (My sister and I are convinced he’s pulling a total Joaquin Phoenix, btw.)

    • Anathema_Device

      Kanye is probably put out by the power couple-ness of Beyonce and Jay-Z.

      Ugh. I have now officially spent more time thinking about these people than I ever thought I would.

      • BayTampaBay

        I think Kanye is secretly in love with Beyonce. He can’t have Jay-Z’s wife so he’s going to conjure up the closet thing he can as a replacement. Talk about spooky……..this could be a third tier plot on American Horror Story! LOL! LOL!

        • Anathema_Device

          Hmmm…Modern day “Vertigo”

          • Rhonda Shore

            Exactly what i thought! It’s odd how different she looks with the change in hair color though.

        • ccinnc

          Wow, that makes total sense now, his melt-down at that awards show when he grabbed the mic from Taylor Swift to say Beyonce should’ve won.

          • Rand Ortega

            *Light bulb just goes on in head*

          • OMGosh! I noticed the Beyonce thing awhile back. Kim’s lips look injected as well. She already had nice lips. Her face doesn’t move properly and much of the personality is gone from her face. I hadn’t thought about his erratic behavior at the awards show.

      • Jessica Freeman

        You are not alone. I am a huge Jay-Z fan and have always thought Kanye wanted to BE him. As time has gone on it has become more noticeable.

        • Sobaika

          OR… Be with him 😉

          I hate the closet guessing game but that is one rumor about Ye that will not die.

      • Ugh. Yes. I could have washed the dishes instead of writing my take on Kim and her life.

    • Danielle

      I’ve got the greatest image of KK tying Bey to her bed frame, a la Kathy Bates in Misery.

  • RussellH88

    Klassless, Korny, Korrosive Klown

  • Diego!

    OMG… what a disaster! Girl, THAT is NOT:

    – your dress
    – your underwear
    – your hair
    – your make up

    I like your shoes though.

    • Imasewsure

      Yes that was the one plus… I don’t usually like those shoes and they looked good on her… so she looks awesome from the ankles down… it’s a start

      • Diego!

        Indeed, do you remember her swollen ankles back in her pregnancy days? O_O

        • Imasewsure

          Luckily I avoid all things Kardashian outside of this blog so I never saw them… I remember my own though! Fun times…. 🙂

        • livesarah

          I don’t know why the down-votes. Many of us have been pregnant. Most of us were not dumb enough to cram our poor, swollen feet into stupid, unsuitable shoes. It’s not a body-snark to suggest that was a poor choice of footwear that resulted in her feet and ankles looking like a strung ham. It sticks in people’s mind because she looked so damn *uncomfortable*.

    • Adrianna Grężak

      The shoes are the only classy thing she has on! (since they’re not platform)

      • Diego!


    • Little_Olive

      Can you throw in the nose, too?

  • lalahartma

    I thought he was trying to get her to look like Beyonce when I first saw her new do. It’s pretty obvious.

    • livesarah

      And Bey’s hair is… Not that great. Kim’s natural mane was enviable.

  • MannahattaMamma

    Why is she (and her tacky underpants) on the Tonight Show? Because she had the baby of an actual famous person? Because she lost weight? Because of her tacky underpants? I’m utterly mystified.

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      You forgot about her Kollection of Klothes at KSears!

      • rh33

        Are they still kreating this klassless kouture?

    • YoungSally

      Because Leno can’t actually book anyone good anymore.

    • CMSmith1848

      That was my first question.

  • The dress is not doing anything for her. Even on the runway, they had a slip underneath instead of the sheer look. And I’m sorry, but macrame lace?

    • The color of the lace looks awful with her hair color.

      I hate to say this, but Kim doesn’t look as thin as she used to be. Her butt is a little too big. I’m sure she feels slim after carrying a baby. My point is that she is accentuating her curves and her 10 extra pounds. Nothing wrong with the extra weight. I’M NOT CRITICIZING WEIGHT OR CHUBBY GIRLS. I’m saying that for someone who claims to have fashion sense (she used to shop and style for friends and she has a store and a brand) she ought to wear something that accentuates the positive things about her body.

      A long, snug black dress would be fantastic.

      • moppet

        I totally understand that you don’t intend to be critical of her body shape. But for some of us, curves and an ample booty are features, not bugs. 🙂

        • You know what? I’m so chubby now. And my chubbiness doesn’t even have a nice shape. I’ve usually been thin and people easily put down thin girls. “Men like to have more meat, etc.” I should have stayed away from the subject or said it much better. This is what I meant: This dress doesn’t flatter her, period. It has meant so much to Kim to get her figure back that I’m surprised that she didn’t choose something more flattering to wear.

          If you were dressing Kim, what would you put her in? Let’s say that this dress were considered classy. Do you think she could wear something more flattering? Or if this dress were classy, would you wear it?

          I hope I’m not coming across as argumentative. I’m not here to hurt anyone’s feelings. I’m here to have fun and talk about fashion and dressing people. I’m trying to clarify, not argue.

      • marlie

        Actually, for once, it seems like she’s actually wearing something that fits the body that she has now. The proportions are mostly right (the dress could be a little shorter), and it accentuates her figure without pulling or bulging anywhere it shouldn’t. So, it’s a tacky dress, but it at least fits her.

  • Evan

    Please go away. You and your whole family (and that includes Kanye). Also, isn’t she a wannabe? So technically the makeup suits her perfectly.

  • Latin Buddy

    I HATE HATE HATE this woman with ever fiber of my being! I love and pray that Anna Wintour doesn’t listen to Kanye and ever let her come near Vogue cover.

    • Evan

      I’d rather have Paris Hilton be relevant again than have to see and hear about the Kardashians all the time. At least there’s only one of Paris.

      • Imasewsure

        I’ve always kind of liked Paris Hilton. She makes me laugh and at least she is an actual socialite with a long-time famous family so I don’t mind her all that much

        • Imasewsure

          I didn’t say you had to like her… I just said I do (in comparison to her peer group anyway). To each his own

          • ccinnc

            Never have understood the down-voting thing.

          • Imasewsure

            Yes agreed… but it’s useful if you disagree but not enough to actually reply about why you disagree… I try not to use it too much though because it’s so vague

          • marlie

            I generally only do it if I’m genuinely offended by what someone has said, or if it’s inappropriate, or it it violates the explicit OR implicit rules of the blog. But just disagreeing? I think that’s why I’ve been so offended the few times that something I’ve said has been downvoted. I always want to ask “what did I say that was soooo bad/out of line?”

          • tereliz

            Half the time I think it’s done by accident by people scrolling on their phones. At least, that’s what I tell myself so that I can sleep at night. 😉

        • Sobaika

          I personally don’t think being an ‘actual socialite’ makes one any more worthy of our attention.

          • Little_Olive

            If anything, it kind of makes me prefer Kim… I mean being curvy and a brunette and famewhoring her way up (“up”) must have taken a bit of work, while Paris was already sorta there. Don’t get me wrong, I still find KK a human archon. Just… Oh, whatever.

          • Sobaika

            Hahaha my thoughts exactly.

        • Paris was in the audience at Dancing with the Stars. She was there to support one of the stars (I forget who) and the whole time Tom interviewed her, she stood in a pose with her hand on her hip. She looked silly.

      • Catiline

        Yeah, but didn’t Paris have a tape come out where she was throwing N-bombs all over the place? She actually did manage to release a tape worse than Kim…

        • Sobaika

          I forgot about that! Nbombs and Fbombs too, if I remember correctly. She sure liked her slurs.

        • Evan

          Yeah and she said something about gay men getting AIDs too. I’m gay and I’m not saying I like her, but I’d rather put up with her, so that tells you how much I think of the Kardashians.

      • littlemac8

        Now you’ve gone too far! LOL Another in a long list of people who are famous for doing nothing!

    • Kimbolina

      God, his comments about how Kim DESERVES to be on the cover of Vogue. I could not stop laughing.

      • BayTampaBay

        He is a bigger fame whore than she.

      • Kanye may ruin Kim’s career, and once the cameras leave, he’ll lose interest.

        I’ll admit to watching last week’s Keeping up with the Kardashians. It was the one with the birth of baby North. First, Kim thought the baby should be called “North,” with no last name. That makes me wonder for a nano second what it’s like being Kim and thinking that way.

        The show covered none of the birth. She was on her way to the hospital and the show skipped to five days later. The cameras followed Kourtney to the hospital and through her deliveries. Kim is the star of the show. How is that going to work with Kanye not wanting the baby on the show?

        The mother got the upstairs ready for Kim and Kanye and the baby (and a baby nurse) and treated them like royalty as they were arriving from the hospital to the house, but they showed no entrance. The last thing they showed was, “Here they come!” and then they skipped to talking to Kim five days later. I can’t believe that producers or viewers will tolerate that kind of editing.

        • formerlyAnon

          “Kim’s career”??

          Remind me . . .

          • One has to be so careful on how to word things in this group. <3

            I'd think that a large part of her $$ comes from the Kardashian reality shows. There are spin-offs, but isn't Kim the most popular? I think that all the sisters are more interesting than Kim. The young ones are coming into their own. The tall one is pretty enough (tall enough, thin enough) to model and the older girls are fun and seem to have a lot of heart. Kloe chose her marriage and less screen time. The mother is a fake, and she is trying so hard to be famous herself that it's sad. She ought to sit back and be happy with her 10 percent agent fees and her reality show $$, but I'm guessing that her dating life will get air time now that Bruce has moved out.

            To respond to your comment: Kanye doesn't want to be on the "K" show and he doesn't want the baby on the show either. Before she got with Kanye, she was all about the cameras. Now that she's a mom, how is she to be featured on the show without the baby? Even though I think Kim is the least interesting of the group, people like to look at her and there would be no show without her. Kanye knew that she was a reality star when he "courted" her. Maybe she "courted" him.

            I think they will continue to be in the news a lot and I have a bad feeling that things will become very complicated with him in the picture. I think Kanye is a narcissist. But I'm not sure that a well-rounded healthy man would enjoy that family. They may be fun, but their values are superficial.

          • formerlyAnon

            The news that Kanye doesn’t want the baby on the show is probably the best thing (other than acknowledgement of his talent) that I know about him.

            I know someone struggling out of 12 years with a [clinically diagnosed] narcissist and if he is one, I feel sorry for Kim. Nobody can see that coming till they’ve lived it or observed it very up close and personal.

          • Obviously, I don’t know him or them, and I’m not a professional. I’m not sure what kind of person interrupts a whole award show and tries to give Beyonce the award that went to Taylor Swift. Who has that much self-importance? His view of his place in the world is unusual. He seems to have delusions of grandeur. I love some of his music. I have no reason to personally hate him. I didn’t want to say he was crazy. I tried to use a non-offensive term. I’m guessing that he will be difficult to be married to. My heart goes out to anyone struggling with mental/emotional problems–or their loved ones. My own family has its problems, some painful ones. Life isn’t easy for anyone.

    • aeb1986

      I get that people don’t like her and think she gets way too much media attention for essentially doing nothing (which I agree with), but what is there to hate that much about? I don’t think she’s an outright BAD person…Maybe you can elaborate? But yes- this outfit is definitely trashy

      • Chaiaiai

        Getting married for show? Positing herself as a paragon of feminine power when she rose to national attention through a sex tape? Maybe not a BAD person, per se, but not one worthy of any support either.
        And I never thought I’d say this but D&G deserves better!

        • Rand Ortega

          She’s a bad person. From lying about not knowing how the sex tape was released (by CA law no recording of your likeness can be distributed for $ w/out your written consent) to allowing herself to be urinated on in said tape to being a submissive plaything for men like Reggie Bush, Kris Humphries to Kanye West while pretending to be empowering to women. She’s a fraud in every sense of the word & a horrible role model to (particularly young) women who believe emulating her will garner the same result.

          • Bexxx

            I find this comment pretty misogynist. I do not think that being a “submissive plaything” (really?) makes someone a bad person. Maybe a victim of patriarchy, but not a Bad Person.

          • Rand Ortega

            It makes them a bad person when it’s all that they are & they make an industry out of it.

          • alyce1213

            I agree with everything you’ve said. Yet, as much as I can’t stand her and everything she represents, I think the really baddest person of that bunch is the mother.

          • Rand Ortega

            Absolutely no argument from me.

          • Ali B

            Whatever she likes in bed is in no way related to her worth or “goodness” as a person.

          • Rand Ortega

            That’s not the issue. At all. The issue is she presents & markets herself as nothing more than what men like the aforementioned want in a woman, not a woman of her own volition.

          • BayTampaBay

            I never new about the urination as I have never seen the tape. Has anyone actually seen this sex tape?

          • Bexxx

            I’ve seen it, I don’t remember urination. But weird fetishes does not a bad person make. That stigma is hella dangerous.

          • formerlyAnon

            No. (Weird fetishes do not make one a bad person). But I’m with Rand on this one. The sum total of her persona is an exaggeratedly hetero-normative presentation and the implication by example that little or nothing more is what it takes to be a successful and “empowered” woman. Success which she exhibits by appealing to men with rather macho-man public personas and devoting herself to marketing various products including herself.

          • Sarah

            There’s a difference between “bad” and extremely, hopelessly shallow. Her antics are not malicious, just ignorant and oblivious. Save “bad” for people who are trying to harm somebody.

          • Imasewsure

            Yes I have different standards for being a bad person too… she’s shallow and maybe a little bit dim… but “bad person’ is a whole ‘nuther level

          • Rand Ortega

            But don’t you think holding yourself up as “role model” when the basis of your “fame” is a sex tape you lied about distributing, being submissive to men & not doing anything besides selling yourself & those empty relationships to men is harmful/bad? I do.

          • Sobaika

            No. Vapid and tasteless, sure.

          • Sarah

            I understand what you mean, but my angle is more that it is not for me/us to judge another’s life choices. And I have no love for her or her public image, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t think she’s holding herself up as a role model for anything but other shallow, money hungry famemongers. If you are a young woman who is of age and you let her influence you, that’s your decision. If you are underage, that’s your parents’ fault. Regardless, Hitler was a bad person, and Kim is just lame.

          • Rand Ortega

            Therein lies conundrum of the entirely different levels of “bad”. Hitler wasn’t merely bad, he was & is to this day the pure embodiment of all that is evil. KK, at least to my definition, is bad because she embodies the vapid, fame whore emptiness that makes a mockery of the meritocracy earned through hard work that is supposed to be the ethical foundation of this country. She also embodies the antithesis of feminism that allowing a man to have dominion over your life, thinking and body (Kanye making her throw out her clothes, for example) is the key to attention & success. So maybe it’s a matter of degrees of bad that we quibble over, but given what KK reflects in relation to what we as a culture should be about, I think she’s bad.

          • Bexxx

            Actually, today’s feminism is more focused on not passing judgment on women for their sexual choices.

          • Rand Ortega

            I’m not passing judgment on her for her sexual choices. I’m passing judgment on her for her moral choices & how they are dishonest, anti feminist & anti meritocratic. There is a difference.

          • Bexxx

            And I’m saying that’s not my feminism. That is not modern feminism. Judging a woman’s moral choices, which are bound to sexuality in this case, is anti-feminist.

          • Rand Ortega

            How is lying about the distribution of a tape bound to her sexuality? How is being a fame whore presenting yourself as nothing more than a basketballers/footballers/rappers girlfriend/temporary wife/baby mama bound to her sexuality? Are you saying I have no right to judge KK & her moral choices because she’s a woman? How is judging her choices anti feminist?

          • tereliz

            This statement seems a little reductive to me. How else are you supposed to judge anyone, man or woman if not my their moral choices? I guess we shouldn’t judge anyone, sure, but Kim’s actions sure don’t make me think she is a GOOD person, either.

          • Imasewsure

            At least on this site, you should judge them for their awful fashion choices and terrible hair…

          • tereliz

            LOL, of course!

          • marlie

            I would add that modern feminism is focused on not judging women for ANY of their choices, sexual, moral, economic, etc. Up until you get to the point where someone actually engages in criminal activity or something. Sure, I can’t stand KK, but that’s largely because she’s a vapid shallow human being. But her choices are her choices, and I’ll leave it at that.

          • EveEve

            Clearly some of us BKs need to go back to Feminist University, because our credentials are out of date. Can discussions of a woman’s moral or sexual choices have no role on this board, much less in a post-modern feminist dialogue ?! (Unless they are “criminals”, or that always-mysterious “something”?! Adultery is still a crime, and last time I checked, KK was still married to another man.)

            One could argue that being a vapid shallow human being IS a choice Kim made, no? She was raised with every advantage, and could have chosen (and can still choose) any sartorial, moral or sexual path she desired. c.f Paris Hilton. She sets my modern feminist teeth on edge.

            but I digress: that is one hella slutty get up she is in. Nursing bra fetishists must be thrilled.

          • formerlyAnon

            Women are not exempt from having their moral choices judged just because they are women. Which may not be what you’re saying, but that’s how I read it.

            When the entertainment industry feeds young women a message that appealing to men sexually is the best and most successful path to happiness and fulfillment, I think that’s morally wrong. When an individual woman makes it her *job* to feed the same message to the same young women, I think it’s morally wrong.

            Just because women are historically judged by a harsh double standard for their sexual choices, does not mean that a woman cannot make a choice related to her sexuality that is morally wrong. Or morally irresponsible. I don’t mind what she does in her relationships or with her body. I DO mind that she then makes an industry of it.

            I feel the same way about men who make a career out of being/building an image of being sexist and violent and homophobic. I judge their morals and find them wanting. Which is why I have to just give a miss to a lot of otherwise good music.

            And I lay claim to being a feminist, though I suspect you feel I’m not a “real” one. 😉

          • That’s not what he’s doing.

          • Sarah

            Okay. I fully agree with the concept that you could interpret the way she lives her life as a bad example for anyone who chose to model theirs after her. As far as meritocracy, bless you for that, but there is an entirely different aspect of this country’s culture that values the concept of gaining fame and riches for very little effort, and that is what Kim’s “legacy” (such as it is) is borne from. I guess I just think defining her as a “bad person” is sort of unfair, because like it or not, someone in her family or close to her probably loves her for who she truly is, and thinks the world of her, despite her faults. I think, as you said, it is a question of semantics but also of that old argument of whether you feel a public figure is duty-bound to act with dignity and moral rectitude because of their exposure or not.

          • Rand Ortega

            I truly respect your explanation for where KK’s popularity stems from. But Eva Braun loved Hitler, I don’t think the person’s value to those close to them is a criteria whether or not they’re good or bad for the rest of us. & while I really don’t think anyone is duty bound to do anything, let alone act with dignity or moral rectitude, I’m going to judge them based on a set of standards regardless. But that’s what makes the 1st Amendment such a wonderful thing.

          • Sarah

            Cool, judge away. I will reserve my judging for her clothes and keep trying to assume she couldn’t possibly be as dumb and crappy as she seems. Thanks for discussing and not arguing, though, I appreciate it.

          • Rand Ortega

            You’re awesome fun to have a discussion with. Cheers.

          • jjtxgrrl

            Agreed. Like Chris Brown…..bad person.

          • formerlyAnon

            Okay. I’ll accept that. She’s not bad. She sets a bad example.

          • Imasewsure

            Think it’s unwise to assume anything about a person’s relationships here (“submissive plaything’? we don’t know that)… but it is very unfortunate that she has gotten so much $$ and fame without “deserving” it and this is a horrible lesson for people in general. Shallow student people need role models too I guess though… the rest of us really should try to ignore her…. or better yet… JUDGE HER (and her horrible horrible fashion!!)

          • I think her mother is behind a lot of what Kim does. Her mother is a shallow genius who has taught her girls to go after rich and famous men. Kim was under her mother’s thumb and now she’s under Kanye’s thumb. Both these people have convinced her that she should have things like Vogue covers and a star on the Hollywood walk of fame. Deep down she’s willing to change herself to look like Beyonce. Kim looks like she has had her face and lips shot with something. She was once a natural beauty who is becoming hard to recognize. I think that the way she treated Kris Humphries was an abomination. I see him as being naive. He was in way over his head, and Kim treated him like a high school crush. On the show, she said that she didn’t want her fans to think she was a terrible person THAT IS WHAT MADE HER CRY. She told everybody in her family that she wanted to leave Kris before she told him. Even in the photos of their marriage ceremony, she is turned toward the cameras and the audience, not toward him. I think she is a terrible example for girls and the show makes no judgment about promiscuity (showing her in bed with three or four people so far). But it’s her deceit and superficiality that bother me. I agree that she’s a fraud but not because she’s with various men. Her relationships should be private, and that is the problem with the show.

      • Imasewsure

        It’s also because her show (her family’s show) is literally on 20 hours a day…. and I still can’t figure out why or who watches it…

        • formerlyAnon

          My daughter’s demographic, for one. (20-ish, high achieving, mostly in college and planning on grad or professional school.) Not ALL of them, but enough that I find it bizarre. And a little creepy. Yes, they mock, but they also follow them like, oh, like my mother’s generation followed their favorite soap operas.

          • Slanted & Enchanted

            That’s so interesting! I’m in that demographic, but most people I know don’t watch the show. They do, however, practically inhale the Real Housewives series. I don’t get it. I went to a university known for being very intellectual and anti-establishment, yet I’d go downstairs to find an overflowing room of girls watching the reunion specials. Those things are like two hours! And the Real Housewives is on allllll the time. I was like, “Please, I just want to watch Project Runway at its normal time so that I can read TLo in the morning!” but noooo.

            Not bitter…

      • Adrianna Grężak

        I’ve seen enough of the Kardashian shows to kind of understand why she’s pop culture’s punching bag. The other two Kardashians seem more grounded in reality and aware of their incredible privileges whereas Kim throws a temper tantrum b/c she doesn’t like a pedicure in the Greek Islands.

      • bizarro

        I’m with you. Sure, she’s clueless, but why the hate? no one is being forced to watch her show or read articles about her. She’s not hurting anyone. I just don’t get it. Like her or not, she took what she had a built a brand. Good for her.

        • Imasewsure

          Well just like Miley, we are kind of being forced to watch her and her horrible family… if only for the nanosecond it takes to turn the page, dim the screen or change the channel…

          I blame the media… and the Reagan/Bush administrations (I always blame them)!!

        • Evan

          Yes, no one is being forced to watch her show or read articles about her, but every time you go on the internet or turn on the tv it seems like there’s a headline or pic of a Kardashian. It’s like you can’t watch a late night show these days without a mention of them or one of them being on. People might not like Lady Gaga, Rihanna or Taylor Swift, for example, and think they’re overexposed, but at least they have some talent. The Kardashians’ only talent seems to be marketing themselves. And they’re all so fake, esp. the mom and Kim.

      • Sobaika

        She is trash city, for sure. But I can not get worked up about her or spend enough time comparing her to other famous wannabes. Her sisters seem cool? The taller one and the teeny one with the babies.

        Anyways, next!

      • Little_Olive

        She is to me in the sense that, when it comes to people, not being good (= a positive element in the world) is ultimately the same as being bad. She may not do it intentionally, I give you that, but there comes an age where you have to realize that the line between cluelessness/negligence and wrongdoing is a very thin one.

        Her mother on the other side is a full on bad machine, IMO. Poor girls, really.

        • Evan

          Her mother is terrible. She lies on television all the time. Not to mention that she supposedly told her daughter to make the sex tape or at least was the one who cut a deal for it. I actually dislike the mother more than I do Kim.

    • random_poster

      I will take no offense and nothing in my life will be lacking if she is no longer featured in a post on this site.

      • BayTampaBay

        TLo only posted on her to give an example of how it is possible to take perfectly descent couture and ruin it with little or no effort. There is no such thing as an idiot proof dress.

        Even Uncle Karl cannot make a 100% idiot proof couture dress and Chanel is about as idiot proof as it comes. LOL!

        • demidaemon

          I don’t know how idiot-proof Chanel is these days. Maybe 5, 10 years ago. Today? Not so much. It’s more like idiot bait.

      • Imasewsure

        Yes but the dress was really bad and we needed to comment on it!

  • Catiline

    You might even say that she’s… Obsessed.

    What’s funny is that I think both she and Beyonce are so much more beautiful with darker hair.

    • Spreecord

      Do you figure she goes through the trash and pulls out Beyonce’s old weaves when her and Kanye are invited over for dinner?

    • NinjaCate

      OMG that movie was terrible. Like, it was so terrible that I love it. It was just… ugh. SO BAD.

    • Sobaika

      You came… into my house???? You touched… my child??????


      • jjtxgrrl

        What movie is this?? 🙂

        • Sobaika


      • NYCGlamourpuss

        I just hate when a supposed “suspenseful scary movie” gives up the money shot in the first scenes! You can tell how carefully Bey steps around the you-know-what (no spoiler tags, sorry!) in the first scene or so that it’s going to figure in heavily in the ultimate battle at the end of the movie. You basically know who’s gonna die and how within the first five minutes.

      • OrigamiRose

        Yikes, that is kind of gross given what is alleged to have happened with that bodyguard of theirs…

        • Sobaika

          Hm. I have no idea what you’re referring to. Just so we’re clear I’m channeling Beyonce’s so-bad-it’s-good line delivery from the movie Obsessed.

          • OrigamiRose

            No no, I mean I get you were channeling the movie. But that bodyguard who also worked for Gaga, who went nuts a few months ago on drugs, broke into someone’s house while naked, attacked the homeowner(s) and died after being tasered supposedly had been relieved of duties by BeyJay after being caught on security cameras um… pleasuring himself to pictures of Beyonce and the baby.

            So in retrospect, makes the film dialogue kind of skeevy.

          • Sobaika

            EW OMG

          • OrigamiRose

            I know :/

  • Anathema_Device

    Yes, Klassy with a capital K. Simply awful and tacky.

    Her face looks really different to me. Can’t tell whether it is makeup or cheek injections, but she really is morphing into a different person.

    • Diego!

      I believe she’s had a nose job. Her nose looks longer… and bigger!

      • NoveltyRocker

        It appears to be “clipped” at the tip, more defined and narrow—something a lot of actors eventually do it seems like.

      • RebeccaKW

        Possibly, but she’s always been big into contouring, so it’s possible that she’s changed how she contours, or she’s doing less of it/more of it, and it’s changed how it face appears.

    • Little_Olive

      Nose job and yes, something in her cheekbones. I think she had the works after giving birth, and the blonde ‘do is there to divert attention.

  • Courtenay P

    we get it, you lost the baby weight. along with your dignity and self-respect.

    • patticake1601

      To be fair she never did have dignity and self respect. I think the sex tape took care of that.

      • Bexxx

        So why can’t a woman who releases a sex tape have dignity or self-respect?

        • Imasewsure

          I think releasing the sex tape for publicity and then pretending you didn’t is the problem our dear Patticake is highlighting here not the act of producing (and enjoying) the tape itself…

          • patticake1601

            Thank you! If you want to make sex tapes, go for it. But keep it private. Don’t fake cry about it on national tv while your mother is the one negotiating the release of the tape.

        • patticake1601

          I have no problem with women taping themselves having sex. But releasing it for money and crying on TV about the release when it is well known her mother negotiated the deal. Yes that reeks of class, dignity and refinement.

        • alyce1213

          I think the operative word here is “released” as opposed to “made.”

      • Imasewsure

        It wasn’t the sex tape… she’s just tacky and unfortunately overexposed in every sense of the word

  • Kimmu

    I’m not getting Beyonce so much as Maya Rudolph as Beyonce

  • OrigamiRose

    Ah, the age old catch-22: whining about a lack your lack of privacy while wearing a see-through garment.

    • EveEve

      That dress just looks slutty on her. In other words, right up her alley.

  • nannypoo


  • anabel22

    It’s sad that this woman has zero personality. She’s kanye’s puppet and doesn’t even realize it.

    Go away

  • MoHub

    Maybe it’s my monitor, but I’d swear the runway original is fully lined—in white, too.

  • Virginia McMurdo

    Did she feel like she needed to go get a bunch of work done on her face after baby? Like..she looks weird.

    • sugarkane105

      The lips are PLUMP to say the least.

      • Virginia McMurdo

        Yea. I totally agree. She looks like a caricature of herself now!

    • Jessica Freeman

      To be slightly fair, it is a known fact that she does a lot of contouring with her make up. That’s why when you see her with absolutely no make up, she doesn’t even look remotely like herself.

      • marlie

        Yeah, I’m less likely to assume that she’s had work done, rather than think that her face just look different with the pregnancy changes and the changes in her makeup shading.

    • mshesterp

      That’s what I keep thinking! I can’t quite figure it out…and I’ve read commenters that say it’s post-baby-WHATEVER, but she just doesn’t look like herself. It’s strange because i can’t put a finger on it, but I know something is up.

  • Aidan B

    Wait a minute, is the runway version lined? Did she actually have this thing UN-lined?!

  • Jessica Freeman

    She actually removed the full lining to show her bra and panties, which was in order to show us how good she looks post baby. WE GET IT. Now go back to your version of being private.

    • BayTampaBay

      What did she do with that full lining….since it is D&G I’m sure it is 100% silk….so If she wants that tacky lace dress, I will take the lining and wear it as a dress. It will be the only D&G I could ever afford. LOL! LOL!

      • Jessica Freeman

        I cringe at the thought that she requested the lining be removed.

        • Little_Olive

          I think that was Kanye’s work. Hell, he may even have done it with his hands.

  • Mary Lauer

    But her entire world is that of wannabe. She has just shifted her target.

  • Imasewsure

    Well she’s a mom now so she has to keep it Kardashian Klassy!! Yikes

  • Adrianna Grężak

    She TOTALLY looks like an imitation of Beyonce. I couldn’t place my finger on it until you guys did. After watching an episode of Kanye throwing away half of her closet, I wonder if he’s the one who is changing her makeup/hair so drastically

    • Jessica Freeman

      I think he has a lot to do with it. She wears mainly black and white, which was his doing. And lord, when they were in Paris she was dressed pretty frumpily, which we know is not her style

  • shirab

    Well, at least little North West will be able to afford the therapy she will likely need, if her parents opt to raise her in the spotlight that they insist be aimed at them at all times.

    • Tamara Hogan

      Just wait until little South By South (West) is born! Put a dollar in the therapy jar…

  • KingCrazy

    What’s funny is her announcing she’s going to live a more private life, while on a national television program. A few days after a huge overblown birthday party in Vegas. A week after her ridiculous (recorded) proposal in a stadium. Two weeks after posting a nearly-nude selfie of her ass on Instagram.

    Girl, please. Go home. Preach to someone who believes you.

    • Adrianna Grężak

      That family reached a point where they can’t do anything without pointing a camera at themselves. It’s kind of depressing to see how much the two Jenner sisters live out their lives through Twitter and Instagram.

    • demidaemon

      Yes, and now they (Kim and Kanye) are suing people for “releasing” their “private” proposal video.

  • kittenwithaquip

    “The greatest challenge of my life…” Motherhood? Realizing that you’re responsible for a whole other human being? Keeping your dignity? That Kris Jenner is your mom?
    “…that I gained 50 lbs.”
    Shut. It.

    • shirab

      So glad the studio audience applauded when she announced that she had lost those 50 pounds. Must have been very validating for her. On to the next challenge!

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      That poor little baby is totally effed.

  • ChaCha_70

    She’s so much prettier as a brunette. Oh and sans lip injections. Eek!

  • ashtangajunkie

    I just…I can’t. I don’t like Kardashians. I don’t get Kardashians. I don’t want Kardashians. And one Beyonce is more than enough.

  • Mismarker


  • Bexxx

    Man, I am constantly amazed at the sheer vitriol for her- like, aggressive hatred. I just don’t care about her at all. Is she technically white?

    • Rand Ortega

      She’s Armenian American.

      • dafuq

        No, Armenian American would me she came here from Armenian. Through her father, she is half Armenian ethnically. Armenians (my family among them) are white.

        • Bexxx

          Thanks for the clarification!

          • dafuq

            Sure thing! I always get asked that question when people find out I’m Armenian. 🙂

        • “No, Armenian American would me she came here from Armenian.”

          No more so than “Irish-American” means someone came from Ireland or “African-American” means someone came from Africa. In America, it’s common for people born here to designate themselves by their ethnic background and tagging “-American” at the end of it.

    • Blair Sylvester

      I think people aggressively hate her and her family because they are overexposed and they have made some pretty bad decisions (the whole wedding debacle was really bad for them from a pr perspective) the mother coming out and saying she knew OJ would kill his girlfriend, and the mothers cringeworthy talk show

      • Bexxx

        It’s just so bizarre to me to see like…Sean Penn, Fassbender, etc., who are actually Bad People, get little to no hatred and these people, who are REALLY irritating but ultimately harmless, get real, passionate hatred.

        • Sean Penn gets “little to no hatred?” That’s news to me. He’s easily one of the most politically divisive celebrities around.

          And I would argue with the idea that the Kardashian brand of attention-whoring is entirely harmless.

          • Bexxx

            I think my perspective of public opinion and Sean Penn is generational, and you are probably right. I wasn’t really around during the Madonna era. And I understand why people find the Kardashians’ media presence to be harmful- the vapid obsession with people who are famous solely for wealth and ridiculousness disgusts me. However, we can argue the relative harm caused by the Kardashians, and it often comes down to a discussion of Kim’s sexuality and public persona as a woman, which I would argue happens to a much greater degree than I have ever seen for a man. There are a lot of isms involved in this, one could write a thesis.

          • No, Sean Penn is a divisive political figure TODAY.

            And while I can’t speak to the many reasons why people don’t like Kim Kardashian, I think it’s fairly easy to see why people don’t admire her that much. She’s vain, attention-seeking, materialistic and shallow to a degree that’s shocking even by celebrity standards and she has no discernible talent or job except to promote herself and her family.

        • Sobaika

          I’m not a Kardashian fan by any means, but the vitriol she inspires really surprises me. The only other person I can think of who got that many kittens riled up was Rihanna, and that was at least a meatier topic.

    • In_Stitches

      She is a parody of celebrity. An empty shell, devoid of talent, that for some reason is praised by the masses. She epitomizes what is wrong with this country. The fact that we celebrate her, finance her, glorify her, when she represents nothing more than vanity…it’s a sad thing to see.

      • BayTampaBay

        However, you must admit that she is good at what she does.

        Reminds me of a joke told to me by my UK friend about the “House of Lords”…..”The House of Lords does nothing in particular and does in particularly well.”

        • In_Stitches

          I suppose I have to give her credit. I just don’t understand the juggernaut; there’s nothing there to like (or dislike for that matter). She’s…she doesn’t stand for anything, she doesn’t produce anything (besides clothes for KMart I suppose), she doesn’t (verb) anything.

          I find it sad that we celebrate that, but I don’t put the blame on her. It’s not her fault; it’s ours.

          • formerlyAnon

            A lot of truth in this.

      • Imasewsure

        Eva, Magda, Zsa Zsa and now Kim… she didn’t invent it she just upped the marketing to the ninth degree
        (and has that awful family that we have to deal with too)

        • Sobaika

          I’ll give you that – she’d be far less disagreeable if she didn’t come with an entire Kardashian Klan (really, just the mother).

        • BayTampaBay

          I always loved Eva in Green Acres so at least she did leave some redeeming work!

          • Imasewsure

            Hey I loved the Gabors but you are right Eva was fun in that show and they were campy in general without being overly tacky (until Prince Von A*Hole joined the family of course)

  • Blair Sylvester

    So white doesn’t have to be bridal is what you’re saying ? thanks Kim

  • mjude

    I don’t think I will ever give her a break. don’t care. BARF

  • Is she the first person ever to have had a perfectly nice lining taken OUT of a lace frock?

  • Sara Brams-Miller

    I’m strangely intrigued by that makeup video. Holy weirdness…

    • I just finished watching the video link…O_O O_O O_O

      All I can say is that makeup artist got some mad talent.

    • At the end, when she puts the wig and contacts on, it’s really eerie.

    • Just this morning, I was genuinely pleased at myself for being able to apply my entire face while at a single red light. I’m the NASCAR pit crew of morning routines. Then again, I”m only trying to look like me.

      • formerlyAnon

        Every now and then I realize how much of my morning routine depends upon red lights (like when I go in early, before 6 a.m. before the lights are on the timed cycles).

  • Surely

    “It’s weird and smacks too much of wannabe-ism”…and plastic surgery…..

  • melanie0866

    Agree completely. I really wish people would stop paying attention to her, but that’s not gonna happen. 🙁

  • Scott Cooper

    She is a striking woman, but I believe the damage she’s done to American culture is immeasurable. That said, some women simply are not meant to be blonde.

    • NoveltyRocker

      To me, not even Beyonce is one of those women but I can see that she’s made that particular honey shade a part of her trademark and it works for her. I think it’s rare that anyone looks more themselves after a drastic hair color change. Jennifer Aniston, Christina Hendricks, and Olivia Wilde are a few women who come to mind. In their cases, the hair color they landed on looks like the one they should have been born with and just works with their combination of features for whatever reason. With most others, a few shades within close range of a natural-born color seems to look more naturally beautiful.

    • BayTampaBay

      I am upset about the immeasurable damage she has done to couture!

      I am sure Rachel Zoe is in tears some place.

  • Slanted & Enchanted

    Now that you say Beyonce I get it, but at first glance I was convinced that this was Mariah Carey. To the point that I paused and puzzled over “klassy” because I didn’t get it.

  • MikeW_Vegas

    I’m still confused as to WHY I should care about any of these Kardashian people?

  • bravobravp

    Bleh the road to irrelevance is taking FAR to long for this group….

  • bravobravp

    TLO! you are freaking me out with the Beyonce point and totally right! Gah.

  • Dan_In_NYC

    I was all set to type that she’s turning into Beyonce and you went and beat me to it. Please God, I hope there is no single on the horizon.

  • MilaXX

    Ditto on everything you just said. It’s a shame she’s too stupid to realize the best thing she had going for her was her dark hair and previous style of makeup.

  • Carla_Charlton

    Isn’t she the queen of wanna-bes?

  • Sunraya

    I haven’t even recognized her in recent pictures. I think she is ridiculous, but she was a beautiful woman! Now? Eeekkkk!!!

  • Eric Stott

    Aside from the see-through thing (VERY tacky) it’s not a bad shape on her- but I doubt that she’s wear it if it really covered her.

  • “Tacky, party of two.”

  • Fannie Wolston

    “I lost 50lbs squeee!” is she for real? Good luck KIm with Kanye, girl you are gonna need it. More influential than Michelle Obama, the royal family and Mrs Carter, oh such delusions….

    • Ginger

      The only influence Kanye has on me or my family is to serve as an example of the kind of people we don’t want to be. He’s a talentless assbag. HE makes me stabbier than she does (didn’t know that was possible).

      • Fannie Wolston

        Have to admit I don’t get him, probably tough for his family to take too. Lord yeezus! The bizarre veils he wears on tour, last minute FU’s to fans, due to ripped off trucks, damaged equipment, then pulls off a stadium proposal in between cancellations,Meanwhile Kim is posting selfies in bad taste and wearing teenag hoochie girl outfits on Jay leno and spouting about weight challenges. how much more can the american people endure?!

  • NOLA_gal

    I just rolled my eyes so hard I think I hurt myself. Yeesh.

  • Judy_J

    Jes’ plain tacky. Not sexy, not provocative, not seductive. Tacky.

  • Jumpingjacks

    Well it’s better than the alternative.. Kanye probably suggested no underthings

  • I’ve been saying for awhile that she is looking like Beyonce–or trying to. Her relationship with her boyfriend is probably weird. Yes, they’re both famous, so they gravitate toward each other for superficial reasons. If we are to believe ANYTHING about her reality show, Kim does not have a strong personality. She is fickle and her mind can be changed by her mother and her sisters. She has a fairly wishy-washy personality. For that reason, her sisters are often more attractive because their personalities show in their faces.

    What happened to the old Kim who used to be beautiful? Her lips look injected. Her face has looked a little weird for awhile and I thought this might be due to her pregnancy.


    Kim is a rare beauty when she lets her real face show, instead of covering it with too much liner and eyelashes. Remember how thick her eyelashes were without fake ones?

    It’s sad that Kim worked very hard to get her body back into shape after the public reamed her for looking like a pregnant fatty. She worked out for THIS?

    The runway model looks pretty good in this outfit. I’m not in love with full-body lace. But this dress with black underwear is tacky. I see no good direction for this couple. I think he is controlling her. It is sad that one of the most beautiful women in the world wants to look like someone else.

    • melisaurus

      This All the upvotes to you. I don’t understand the hate for this girl because there is nothing to hate. She is either just a mirror of the people around her or one of the biggest pushovers in the world. I don’t mean to be cruel. I just have never seen her have a personality of her own ever. I have watched some of the show and couldn’t tell you a single defining thing about her, other than how who her family is.

  • Kathy

    I’m afraid Kim bought a one-way ticket to Tacky Town a long time ago.

  • Synnae

    Seriously, the only thing I have to give Kim and her family credit for is showing the US a body type every single week on telly that is not thin. Everything else regarding her personality bleh.

    But as for her dress sense, because that is what we should be discussing here, pre-Kanye she dresses fairly well for her body type. Yes, it was a bit fashion victim hoochie at times but it flattered her curves. With Kanye that so went out the window as he doesn’t want to understand that a lot of especially more out there high fashion – whether you agree with that or not – is simply cut only for the tall and slender.
    As for this dress, D&G the brand actually does make sense for her as they cut for curves more but jeez. Lining should never be optional…

  • crash1212

    This is so awful on every level that it hardly rates critique. I really wish that this could be the one and only space in all the land that would not devote one spec of coverage to this person or any member of her family. Is that too much to ask? A totally K free zone? Think about it TLo – it could be a wonderful way of distinguishing yourselves! Other than your amazingly insightful, delightfully bitchy, in depth knowledge you share with us daily.

    • Blair Sylvester

      They almost never report on her which is to their credit

    • BayTampaBay

  • jw_ny

    She certainly knows how to keep the free publicity on her…

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    But she’s so “influential” … more influential than Michelle Obama, or so I’ve heard. (Where’s that sarcasm font when I need it???)

  • JauntyJohn

    Once I grasped that the Kardashians are this generation’s Gabor sisters everything became clear to me.
    Everything became a little sadder, but clear.

    • alyce1213

      They are not. The Gabors, although noted for their beauty and sex appeal, at least had some discernible talent as actresses. Little, but some. The same can’t be said for any of the Kardashians, who have no perceivable talent for anything other than home porn.

      • Kathy

        Yes, I guess one would be hard-pressed to find anything to compare to the Kardashians’ level of mediocrity.

      • JauntyJohn

        “some discernible talent?” while I will certainly not argue the level of celebrity they reached in their day — which was enormous — they were basically three accents with a hairdo.

  • Kent Roby

    She’s famous for making a sex tape; this is as classy as it gets for this fake “celeb”. She, and the rest of Kris Jenner’s litter need to disappear now.

  • Daisy Walker

    She is beyond “tacky”. She has entered “tooky” territory.

    • demidaemon

      Is that a reference to Tyra Banks’ “novel,” Modelland? If so, touche!

  • alyce1213

    I was hoping that this was pretty much a Kardashian-free zone, since you guys have said you don’t want to shine much light on her. Oh well.
    It’s clear to me that her baby daddy has the hots for Beyonce and is trying to pull a Pygmalion on Kim. You know he picks out her clothes, right?

    • Tonia682

      I agree with you 1000% percent!!!

  • MoreShoes

    At least it has a modest length….snort

    • Kathy

      Hey, and she’s not wearing a thong panty.

  • marlie

    KK is never going to be “classy,” but if she’d gone with the fully lined version (or even white undies), I wouldn’t hate this so much. Man, I’m setting the bar low, though. Also, totally channeling Bey with the hair. And I blame KIM for the nude lip (matching the skin tone of the face, rather than just the normal pink of the lip) trend that’s sweeping the red carpet these days. HATE. IT.

  • boweryboy

    Either line that shit or wear a matching bra and granny panties. It’s a no brainer, right?

    Goes to show no matter how much money one has, you can’t buy taste or class.

  • Erica Woods Tucker

    It’s almost like Vertigo. Where Jimmy Stewart got Kim Novack to change into the woman he loved then threw her off the bell tower. Kanye really wanted to be with Beyonce, so he’s getting Kim to be like her. The next thing, you’ll see her working out with Beyonce’s trainer and putting together a singing group so ultimately she can drop them and then get back together with them at the Super Bowl. As far as the dress goes…who wants to see someone’s underwear? It’s not even interesting. YUCK.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      So should we assume from this that Kanye really wants to be Jay-Z? Cause that’s what I’m thinking here. All a lot creepy if you ask me.

      • Erica Woods Tucker

        That’s what I’m thinking too. It’s all types of nutzo. Remember how Kanye went crazy on Taylor Swift. It’s all part of some cray-cray love square. Him, Jay-z, Bey, and Kim. Problem is Jay would never want to be Kanye. That would be a big step off the throne for him.

  • CeeQ

    Gross. And agree, creepy.
    Watch your back, Bey.

  • So do we think she KNOWS just how awful this is and does it anyway because she’s adhering to the any publicity is good publicity philosophy? Because I cannot imagine that anyone can look in the mirror, see that reflected back at them, and think it looks good. I mean show the goods, it’s who she is and I don’t mind that if it’s your thing, but white undies were really all that’s required to keep this from being the godawful mess that it is.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    How is she a thing? I do not understand one iota of it.

  • Clydette Wantland

    Hate her and her stupid dress. Tacky does not even begin to explain that look.

  • Trickytrisha

    I can’t be bothered to comment on this pathetic person in her ugly unflattering outfit, her sleazy family or her beyond sleazy ego driven nutcase of a BF. Oh, damn.. did I just comment?

  • cocohall

    First, thank you for explaining how she is morphing into Beyonce – I couldn’t put my finger on it, but it is like watching that Black and White Michael Jackson video where the peoples’ faces morph from one race/gender into another. But not in a fun, we are all part of the same big family of humans, way. In a freaky, unsettling way.

    I didn’t read the whole commentary in detail, but it is interesting how strongly most everyone seems to feel about her. And I had to laugh at the thought of Kimmy K reading this thread with all those big words and ideas some of the bitter kittens toss around with ease. Unless I’m off my mark, she would need the Cliff Notes version of TLo. Which is to say: You aint Beyonce. You need a slip. You need to stay home some.

  • SorayaS

    Yes the Beyonce-drag (dare I say, surgery?) is really creepy and quite sad considering that she’s always been very attractive without looking like anyone else.

    This outfit is a horror show- tacky and completely unflattering. I’m actually not opposed to visible underthings and really like the original dress but what she’s done with this look really is foul. Surely she tried it with nude underwear. Or surely they sent her a slip with it? D&G can’t be happy with this look.

    And I swear she’s already worn this white lace dress in the last couple of weeks?? She only wears neutrals since Kanye right? UGGGHH.

  • bertkeeter

    God forbid she could ever be chic and stylish! Maybe she’s allergic to good taste. That would explain Kanye!

  • unbornfawn

    Nothing says tacky like bleached hair and see through lace with black underwear.

  • Terri Terri

    And some poor kid has to call her “mama.”

  • amf0001

    she wanted to show the world that she doesn’t need spanx…
    but I hadn’t recognized the Beyoncé transformation till you mentioned it. Now I can’t unsee it…

  • CarrieBaby

    It looks cheap with the black under it. Had she worn it like the runway version or the one with the white under it, she would have looked better

  • GTrain

    I swear it’s like a joke everyone’s in on but her. And she can stop with the Beyonce stalking — I expect the Carters will be otherwise occupied on her wedding day.

  • quiltrx

    It’s amazing the horrors the wrong woman can do to a dress!
    It’s also amazing how cheap and whorish someone with plenty of money to do better can look.

  • MandyM

    Wannabe-ism? K. Kardashian? No! You’re joking!

  • Tashina Savage

    I understand that people like to hate on the Kardashians, but the only one I find to be that revolting is the mother. I think most of them, Kim included, seem pretty down to earth and they are actually quite funny at times. Kim reminds of someone I could be friends with. I don’t think she is as unlikeable as she is made out to be.

    • Kim Kardashian seems “down to earth?”


      • Tashina Savage

        Do you watch her show? What do you base your opinion on? I know she is an attention whore to the max (but what celeb with a reality show isn’t?), but I think her personality is pretty grounded. She knows how to laugh at herself, and how to just be chill. Of course, I am basing this on a show where I am sure her every move is calculated, but I did say “seems”. 🙂

  • How do you put it? ‘Of course’.

  • OffToSeeHim

    I’m not sure it’s specifically Beyoncee, I think she’s just using extremely heavy makeup to try to contour her face because she’s gained some weight after the baby. Which, for crying out loud, I’m still carrying baby weight and the baby’s nine, so I have some sympathy for that. Come on, who’s never gone with some extra-heavy contour blush to try to make their face look more angular?

  • twocee

    I like the comparison that FormerlyAnon made to soap operas in an upthread reply.

    I have never see the Kardashians show, nor Jersey Shore or the Housewives of X. But I could easily see how these shows could fill the void left from the death of traditional soap operas, or even have started the fall of the soap operas. How was Erica Kane any different than Kim Kardashian or Kris Jenner, other than Erica was fictional (and got amnesia alot)? But we all know that there are real life Erica Kanes out there, always have been — is it any surprise that people enjoy watching the real life Erica Kanes any less than the fictional version? Yes, Kim and Snooki and x,y, and z of these shows have little to no “talent” but that’s not what people are asking from them — the viewers want a voyeuristic look into lives that they do not and will likely never have. Not much different than watching a bunch of rich oil barons fight it out on a Texas ranch.

    The biggest difference for me is that since Erica Kane was fictional her every exploit and divorce and miraculous come back from the dead wasn’t news — either nightly or entertainment, but since Kim is a real human being, her exploits are.
    But really, that is more the fault of the media and the people who consume that media (including those of us giving TLo 200+ comments on their post) than it is Kim’s. Kim is playing the game that our society allows her to play.

    • formerlyAnon

      I hadn’t thought this out as you have, but I think you are probably correct about the appeal of these train wrecks. AND about the sad fact that we all play into it; without the audience there would be no “reality” t.v. industry.

      ETA: Most humans LOVE story, we are irresistibly drawn into a narrative. We recast our own experiences into narratives that somehow make sense to us. I guess it should be no surprise that reality t.v. is going gangbusters.

      • twocee

        Your comment is really what got me thinking about the connections of soap opera and the Kardashians’ type of reality tv. I think many people understand that “reality” shows are scripted to a certain extent and they are all heavily edited to create their narratives. That editing creates a type of fiction that to me is not much different than the hour-long soaps our moms used to enjoy.

        I find the evolution of reality TV over the last 20 years and the ever growing prominence of its “stars” to be a fascinating, and often depressing look at American pop culture. I don’t have any interest in watching KK’s show and I honestly wish she’d get off my TV screen when she pops up on things like Leno or Kimmel, but I can’t deny that find the attention that surrounds her academically interesting.

        • demidaemon

          To be fair, most of the RH shows have people on them with some sort of real job, no matter how delusional the participants are. Also, Bravo gives the viewer breaks from them. I feel like E! is often Kardashians 24/7, whereas Bravo has other shows on with some cred. The best things on E!, for me, are Chelsea Lately and Fashion Police, two shows that willingly make fun of their place in the media world.

    • guest2visits

      I like the comparison of reality tv stars to the soaps. I get that vibe from all the people who follow them and know every twist in their camera filled world. The popularity of this type of show and this type of ‘cast’ is depressing. I am stumped as to why the appeal, but, alas – I could never see the charm in soaps either (fake, stale, and a waste of my *real* time to me); so I may not be the one to ask.
      But like an insidious Hydra-headed monster, the K’s and others keep branching out, further and more diversely into every space the eye might wander. I can’t open a magazine, walk through a store, or scan the tv or laptop without an image of a pouting, limp, Kardashian. The spell behind those coy, yet apathetic fish eyes must be immense. I find this clan to be an annoying blend; the selfish whine of Paris Hilton & and the claw for fame and fortune tempered by a spoiled, bored decadence. It’s not difficult to see what they’re all about in 10 minutes or so. It’s a very shallow, lavishly-empty family dynasty, located in LA. I can’t be entertained by it. I’m drawn to the shows that teach me or inform me anyway. (home improvement addict!)

  • FashionableLena

    Since Kanye is apparently dressing Kim now, this doesn’t surprise me. I think that it is HIM that’s trying to turn Kim into Beyonce. Kim is too much of a wuss to put her foot down and say no. Her style has gone completely downhill since hooking up with Kanye. I can’t wait for this sham of a relationship to be over.

  • webslice33

    tacky kardashian

  • Arjay Gallo

    Shes trying so hard to be Beytwice.

    • Michelle Gennari

      That made me really LOL!

  • Michelle Gennari

    Such a tacky thing. Ugh.

  • Lizzy

    But her man wants her to look like Kate…. which… I’m pretty sure we’ll never see Kate in a get up like this.

  • guest2visits

    Very tacky, very desperate looking.
    The models look so pretty in it this – Kim has to ask why she can’t be on the cover of Vogue….?
    And whats with all the upper lip injections?

  • demidaemon

    UGH. I hate this, HATE THIS. Also, I totally see what TLo is saying, having never seen it before. Creepy.

  • MaryMcClelland

    I call this: The Day Dolce & Gabbana Died. Ugh … of all the times for their widows weeds not to be deployed. Go home, Kim and stay there until you do some deep soul searching. You’re not Beyonce, or anyone else of note.

  • Joey Melliza

    holy mother of see thru granny panties. WideTF!
