Coat Porn: Kim Kardashian in Max Mara in NYC

Posted on November 22, 2013

Hate her if you must, darlings. We certainly won’t stand in your way. But we can at least appreciate her taste in outerwear.



Kim Kardashian leaves her SoHo, New York City apartment in a Max Mara coat paired with a Lanvin pencil skirt and Tom Ford heels.

Max Mara Fall 2013 Collection/Model: Tilda Lindstam

Tom Ford Spring 2012 Collection

Let us stipulate that she’s an idiot for wearing those shoes in New York City in November. If it’s cold enough for that coat, then sandals are off the menu. It just looks dumb. Having said that, we kinda love this outfit. The colors look amazing on her. But yes, it’s too tight on her. It’s almost not worth mentioning. Pointing out that a Kardashian is wearing something too tight is like pointing out that they’re breathing oxygen.

  • I sometimes wonder if what they breathe is oxygen…

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      They are breathing money. Anything for money.

    • Ginger

      I think the correct term is wasting oxygen, not breathing.
      Sorry…I couldn’t resist.

    • Silicates.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      They breathe attention-and money.

  • Danielle

    Shocked to see her off of Kanye’s green-screened motorcycle so soon.

    • alyce1213

      Against my normal instinct to avoid such things, I actually watched it, couldn’t contain my curiosity. I wish I hadn’t. So much wrong.

      • The other day, I had the tv on mute and looked up from my laptop to see the video playing on E! “News”. Wow. Brain bleaching was not effective enough. I’m worried I may never recover.

        • alyce1213

          It took me a few days, really, and now I’m afraid of flashbacks.

        • Lucía Gavello

          At least you didn’t have to listen to it.

          • I think that only added to the creepy, simulated sex of it all.

        • Danielle

          GO TO YOUTUBE THIS INSTANT and look up the Seth Rogan/James Franco parody. Aptly titled Bound 3.

      • Danielle

        I was floored that Ellen of all people previewed the video on her show.

        • save_the_hobbit

          I kept waiting for Ellen to pop in on the green screen. I thought it was a joke.

          I was so, so wrong.

      • FrigidDiva

        I was on break from a training class at work and a co-worker and I watched it. By the end of it we were laughing so hard we were crying. I’m sure not the reaction Kanye was wanting, but the video looked like something made in a 1980’s highschool AV class, and once they started bouncing on that fake motorcycle? I almost couldn’t breathe from laughing so hard.

      • ConnieBV

        I’m sort of ticked about it. Yes Kanye is ridiculous, but man, at least he was a good rapper. WTF? That song blows and the video is a like a bad April Fools’ Joke. I immediately shut it off and googled some Jesus Walks to get the stink off.

      • demidaemon

        It’s kind of hilarious if you realize it may be an apt depiction of their sex life.

    • sojourneryouth

      Ha! Yeah, that video is really special. When two exquisitely deluded people get together and do what they do “best,” there just are no words to describe it–the horror of Kim literally riding Kanye, her dead face and eyes, the stupid, stupid song lyrics, all of it. For some reason, the video reminds me of Summertime Sadness, but is not nearly as good. Does anyone else see the similarities, or am I smoking crack?

      • ConnieBV

        I think it’s the color palette. Also: the self-aggrandizement.

        • sojourneryouth


  • Mary Lauer

    And the belly strip. Don’t forget the belly strip! Definitely not appropriate when that coat is required due to winter weather!

    • NinaBoo

      KimK, I get it. I was born and raised in Southern California and have thrown a sweatshirt on while refusing to take off my flip flops. If it’s a warm rain, I don’t really need to slip off the Chacos. I GET IT.

      But girl…belly strip and a deliciously warm coat with naked shoes? No…no NO no…No.

    • kimmeister

      I think she’s just ready to show off how much baby weight she has lost.

    • Little_Olive

      I cannot for the life of me make up what is going on in that waist. Does her spanx hit her just below the top of the skirt? Is the skirt that way?
      Having said that, I’ll admit to loving the color palette and mix of textures.

      • Charlotte Sanders

        I think that’s the skirt she was photographed in that’s see-through and showed her ass.

  • Jaeda Laurez

    I love the purple and yellow, those shoes are gorgeous, but not for December. And the only thing I really don’t like is that hair color. She was so much more striking with the brown hair.

    • KateMaryC

      Agreed. Not only is her face better with dark hair, but dark hair would pop against that coat. The blonde and yellow are meh together.

    • French_Swede

      I think she’s trying to be Kanye’s “Beyonce”. Does that make sense?

      • demidaemon

        Yes, it does. Its kind of creepy.

      • 3boysful

        Yes. And she’s also channeling JLo. And I’m pissed at self for even devoting a thought to her.

        • venusvelvet

          I like to think she’s a thorn in JLo’s side.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            I’m imagining JLo quletly putting a stiletto through KimK.

      • Jaeda Laurez

        Sure, I just think it’s a terrible idea lol.

      • Vtg Fashion Library

        Does that mean she should be called Kanyonce?

    • DebbieLovesShoes

      Yup. Exactly.

    • kim bunchalastnames

      plus … isn’t that THE skirt? the one she wore a summer or two ago, and was photo’d from behind to show her commando stripe?

  • Madeline Zappala

    ..Kanye’s taste in outwear

  • Ashleigh

    coat whores!! 🙂

  • Clueless_Jock

    She looks so different now.

  • Town

    She actually looks good but yeah, sandals in NYC in November = stupid.

  • kipper

    I do all that I can do to avoid any reading/hearing about this entire family – which is VERY hard to do ( they must PAY Huffpo a large amount of cash ) SO, I have not seen this one in a good long while – IS her face very different or am I just thinking of another one, there are like 25 of them , right ? She is pretty .

    • lunchcoma

      That’s what she’s always looked like, though I think lightening her hair makes her features stand out in a slightly different way than they did before.

      • ConnieBV

        It’s the makeup being toned down. That haircolor can’t take so much.

    • Danielle

      HuffPo posts some idiotic stuff already, they fit right in.

    • FrigidDiva

      I THINK it’s the lips. They just don’t look right. I saw a picture of her from a few years earlier the other day and I thought she looked so much prettier.

    • Ginny Ellsworth

      She has always struck me as an exotically pretty woman with massively poor clothing choices. Then again, it might be that Mommy Dearest has dressed her in the past and now it is Keezy Yeezy Wheezy. The best thing this glut of K’s has ever done is push Paris and Nikky Hilton off the fashion stage.

    • marlie

      I’m the same way… I actively avoid watching every- and any- thing having to do with them, and still, I know WAY too much about what’s going on in their lives.

      • demidaemon

        My mom has started watching their show. I don’t approve, but I can’t stop her. I will say that the other two sisters (Kourtney and Khloe) have something going for them, personality-wise, but they also don’t still live at home with Momager No. 1.

        However, watching their new commercial is going to a)give me an epileptic fit or b) cause me to go cross-eyed at some point. People’s bodies should not move like a seesaw.

  • lunchcoma

    Love the coat. Love the color combination. If the top was a little longer and the skirt a size bigger, I think I’d approve of this, with or without the silly sandals.

  • alyce1213

    It is a wonderful coat, but she’s small and the sleeves are too long (or maybe it’s just falling off her shoulders).
    I had to find something wrong, in addition to the squashed boobs, tight skirt and unseasonal sandals.

  • Sarah

    The colors do look good on her. They also look like a Color Me Badd video.

  • ccinnc

    Huzzah, no cleavage!

    • kimmeister

      But look what she’s done to her poor boobs. It’s a uniboob that comes up to her clavicle.

  • MilaXX

    iCan’t. I like the coat. That is all.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      I know. I know. It’s so hard…

  • CommentsByKatie

    Love the colors. Although it reminds me of the Lakers, sadly. Thanks Grandpa for ruining a great color combination.

  • ccinnc

    Huzzah, no cleavage!

    How much time does it take to feather your hair perfectly forward like that? And then what does the back of it look like?

    • ccinnc

      PS. Sorry for the duplicate post. Discus is freaky this afternoon.

  • hughman

    Dear KK – For christ’s sake, stop trying to be J-Lo. Kthxbye.

    • elirt

      I think she’s more like trying to be Beyonce.

      • I’m just glad Kanye stopped trying to make her into Marina Abramovic, because those were some dark, awkward days (and probably the real reason Kim went blonde).

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Not just sandals in November in NYC, but her midriff is exposed. Sandals and an exposed midriff in THAT coat! I don’t care how gorgeous the coat is, she’s an idiot!

  • tonibaloney

    Best she’s looked in ages. Love the color, and the fit isn’t bad compared to some the mesh atrocities Kanye has foisted on her lately.

  • Anathema_Device

    Love the yellow and purple combo. The rest is unfortunately typical.

    • MaggieMae

      High school colors here; so that combo is ruined for me.

  • Adrianna Grężak

    *Kanye West’s taste

    Eh, this is classy for the Kardashians. That said, I have a similiar bust size to Kim, and the top looks like she hasn’t figured out what size sports bra to wear.

    • MmmmmmmmK

      Seriously. Her boobs are 10 inches tall.

  • Sarah

    Seriously: take this ensemble, make it a turtleneck and pants in the same fabrics, keep the coat, put it on Andy Samberg, and have him sing Dick in a Box.

  • CakesOnAPlane

    her dead eyes scare me…

    • alyce1213

      If you can stand it, watch Kanye’s motorcycle video with her. She’s absolutely comatose, expressionless.

      • Mismarker

        Challenge accepted.

      • Glam Dixie

        Possibly she has injected so much shit into her face she no longer has expressions. I can’t watch, between her and Jesus or Yesus or whatever, I just can’t.

      • Erica

        Just popped over to watch it. First, is it purposely bad? I didn’t think those folks did irony–they seem very earnest in their self-aggrandizement. Second, her dead eyes and her closed eyes when hugging him reminds me of a comment my husband made, after his bachelor party, about strippers and how they interact with customers: “the dancers pretend to like you, and you pretend to believe it.”

        • alyce1213

          No irony. Full-on delusion.

  • Carolyn

    Having read about her ebay auction for charity and her only donating 10% of the money she raises to the victims of the typhoons in the Philippines. I don’t think you should feature this woman on your site.
    She is clearly a terrible person.

    • Glam Dixie

      She obviously didn’t make enough money off of her ‘wedding’ to sustain her lifestyle.

    • Mismarker

      Terrible. Because she really needs that other 90%.

    • BayTampaBay

      If, and I mean if “if” can be verified, the e-bay charity story is true than I agree with you.

      However, we all must remember that this is not our website. It belongs to TLo and we are only invited guest.

    • aeb1986

      This site is about fashion, not celebrities with good v. bad morals. Let’s not head down that road or else a lot of the celebrities we love to mock for their clothes might never appear!

      • alyce1213

        I think it’s the unbridled, egregious Kardashian greed that incites greater criticism than other celebrities. It’s kind of fashion-related — she sold some of her pre-Kanye clothes.

  • I want that coat so I can pretend to be Dita Tracy.

    • alyce1213

      I knew I’d seen that coat somewhere before!

  • lalahartma

    I thought she wan’t allowed to wear color.

    • BayTampaBay

      Who doesn’t allow her to wear color? Her Mother? E!?

      • lalahartma

        Her fiance.

  • Miranda

    *unplugs machine*………….She’s gone y’all.

    • sagecreek

      If only 🙂

  • MoHub

    Not only too cold for the sandals, but also for the bare waist.

  • MaggieMae

    In the thumbnail, I thought it was JLo!

    • MoHub

      Speaking of which, Barbie Collector now has a set of JLo dolls!

    • Well, you’ve made KK’s day with that one.

  • throwaneyeonthis

    Max Mara coats are the best. You can throw them on over almost anything and become instantly classy. Notice I said “almost”.

  • Jumpingjacks

    It’s not too cold for sandals, please she probably isn’t in the open air for more than 3/4 minutes at the time before getting into a heated place or car..

  • Erica_Vuitton

    You mean KANYE has good taste considering he treats her like a My Size Barbie and picks out EVERYTHING she wears. Kinda sad IMHO.

    • Jumpingjacks

      One has to make sacrifices to get to be with money.. eh I mean Kanye..

      • Erica_Vuitton

        She’s worth legit like $40-$50 million. I don’t think she cares about his money. His fame & high fashion connections YES but not his money.

  • decormaven

    Coat and sandals do not go together. Exposed midriff and coat do not go together. That’s my observation on the fashion depicted.

  • MrsDanvers

    You probably were sifting through so many photos of this coat before you found one in which she wasn’t naked underneath 🙁

  • BuffaloBarbara

    She looks pretty fabulous. I’ll go there. For this sort of celebrity, this is pretty classy.

  • Is this the first time she’s worn colour since the baby was born?

    I’m starting to think this woman needs one of those cult exit strategies – she needs to get away from her family and her fiance and just take the baby to a desert island to grow pineapples or something.

    • Kate4queen

      I have pineapples! she can come and stay in my ohana as long as she doesn’t bring the rest of them. 😉

      • Can I come and help with the pineapples instead? I promise I won’t bring Kanye!

        • Kate4queen

          Sure! You can pick papayas avocados bananas and mangoes for breakfast LOL Oh and the coffee will need picking too! 🙂

  • sagecreek

    It’s a nice coat. And that’s all I have to say about that.

  • Chaiaiai

    I wonder how much time she spends getting ready for those 10 feet between the door and the town car?

  • FrigidDiva

    I am a busty gal myself and my biggest pet peeve with bustier celebs is that they don’t wear the proper support for their girls. Plus, like Kim I have a five month old at home, and trust me, you shouldn’t be walking around without a bra on, I don’t care who you are.

  • Her taste?? Don’t you know Kanye is dressing her now?

  • Mona_Visa

    I know it’s not logical, but damn, I *love* those shoes. Golden shimmery yum-yums…

  • Mismarker

    I do love that purple on her. Nothing else nice to say.

  • Maggie Smith

    Neither of them are ever seen with the baby. What’s happened?

    • guest2visits

      My thoughts exactly. Too busy promoting the new video. Baby doesn’t fit that picture/image.

    • save_the_hobbit

      Did anyone actually think they;d be taking care of the baby?

      • Maggie Smith

        Very good point.

      • Gatto Nero

        Poor little North.

  • tereliz

    WANT! That coat. She can keep everything else.

  • Kayemwhy yo

    It’s been warm in NYC, but not that warm for sandals though I love them. It’s a shame she looks so sad. Between Mommy Dearest and Kanye she doesn’t have a chance. I want that coat badly.

  • CeeQ

    Surprisingly, this looks good, other than yeah the obvious too tight issue…

  • cmb92191

    I had a coat that color.., in 1990!

    • alyce1213

      So did Warren Beatty (in Dick Tracy).

      • save_the_hobbit

        My current winter coat is sort of a sunshine/mustard yellow color. I love it!

  • Tee

    Please don’t cave in and give this person any more press than she already receives.

  • Imasewsure

    Love the outfit but still not loving the hair color… ok with the shoes since she’s cray cray anyway

  • Anna_Cecilia

    I almost didn’t recognize her (especially after regrettably clicking play on her and Kanye’s latest um, video-which I would give almost anything to UN-see). She has…so many clothes on.

  • Not even tacky Kim can detract from the beauty of that coat. As for the rest of it, I think her clothes always fit like sausage casing because she is squeezing herself into the largest sizes her favorite designers offer. She won’t go up a size because she literally can’t and still wear high fashion.

  • Shawn EH

    Her expression is that JBK moment (just been kanyeed); or is it the way we all look before morning coffee?

  • ashtangajunkie

    A coat so fabulous, it’s fabulous on absolutely anyone.

  • Jessica Freeman

    Honestly if that wasn’t a krop top and the skirt fit, and you know, the right shoes for November, it would be a great look. But, konsidering who it is that shit would never happen, we can just enjoy more coat porn for the day.

    • Gatto Nero

      Re: the bare skin and sandals in November, I agree; but you just know she isn’t actually *walking* anywhere.

  • stubbornthoughts

    I don’t know if she’s able to breathe in this outfit. But I think she’s managed to learn how to breathe through her vagina since E! found her.

  • Lori

    If the skirt & top weren’t so tight and didn’t show that strip of belly skin and if she had on shoes that remotely made sense for the weather/coat I’d actually like this. The coat is great and I don’t even like that color. I don’t remember the last time she came this close to having a good outfit. So, that’s a win, I guess?

  • marlie

    The coat is rather gorgeous, and aside from the clothes being too tight, for once, the whole outfit isn’t over-wrought.

  • YoungSally

    I knew it felt weird in NYC today — I just thought it was the full moon — apparently it was KK.

    But do love the coat…actually the whole Lanvin ensemble.

  • Morales Mike

    A mid-drift top in November in NY?

  • slizzy

    Shoot, I like this.

  • Kathryn Tewson

    Kim Kardashian is one of the very, very few people on this earth who can rock a nude lip. When I try it, I look like a corpse.

  • demidaemon

    Truer words were never spoken. Also, that coat is the only defensible piece she is wearing here. You may have lost some weight, Kim, but that doesn’t mean you can fit into everything. Also, has anyone seen that awful new music video of Kanye’s with her in it? HURK.

    • Fannie Wolston

      It’s their first so called sex viseo, but Kanye doesn’t even know how to ride a scooter let alone a motorcycle, and Kim would cry hysterically if she were made to ride pillion

  • frannyprof

    Love her coat. Hate her. The belly skin. In NY. In Nov. Dumb dumb dumb

  • KT

    I agree that the shoes don’t work, but otherwise I’m shocked to say that I really like every other damn thing about this look. Even her hair. I don’t know what’s happening right now, I need a drink.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Hate her, love the coat. It’s been a good season for coat porn so far…keep it up, celebs!!

  • shopgirl716

    I do like her pedicure. and the coat is amazing.

  • conniemd

    The purple top and mustard yellow coat pair really well together. Not a color combination I’d have thought of.

  • Fannie Wolston

    Looks like Kim has been raiding Kylie’s closet again for inspiration.

  • guest2visits

    I like the outfit but I find it so weird to see a new mom with nothing in her hands or her arms.

    • guest2visits

      Yeah it sounds judgy but the celebs are usually heavily photograghed with their new ones, and then they kind of take some time off (ie; with family, out of camera view). K&K went on some kind of junket immediately and it seems that everything is geared to make it appear like she never even gave birth. NOT that a new mom can’t head off to her job, or be seen not holding her child at any given moment.

  • Miss WKS

    face frozen in time…….

  • quiltrx

    I can’t with the Dora the Explorer strip of belly showing.

  • venusvelvet

    I do not get the Max Mara styling in the collection pic. The lank hair and sea of mustard aren’t working for me.

  • Tee

    I thought it was sausage Friday, not sausage-casing Friday.

  • bellafigura1

    That’s a gorgeous palette.

  • flamingoNW

    Compared to a lot of things she’s worn, that’s pretty impressive

  • MannahattaMamma

    In order to get my hands on that coat I would … I would actually *watch* the new Kanye West video that features Kim K. on a motorcycle. Which is the worst video in the history of video…but for that coat? I’d do it.

  • not applicable

    Did she buy this at Sears? That’s where she’s shilling her fashion line…

  • kmiller1k

    Kim, Beyonce or JLo they look like triplets.

  • andi56

    She could at least have her minions purchase a coat that fits, and HEM THE SLEEVES! Really, people, it’s not so hard.

  • fursa_saida

    I just wish she hadn’t gone blonde. It’s so very wrong for her. Anything else I might say has been said a thousand times.

  • MK03

    Somebody’s had some post-baby work done. She doesn’t quite look like herself.

  • pdquick

    Bare midriff and sandals with a heavy, albeit fabulous overcoat=trying too hard.

  • Lizzy

    Her poor boobs. They look so squished… if she’s still breastfeeding that just can’t be good….

  • jjtxgrrl

    She looks as unhappy as that model.

  • Ann VerWiebe

    Why doesn’t she have a handbag? How is a celebrity allowed to leave home without a sponsored bag?
