Met Gala 2014: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Posted on May 07, 2014

Kim has one goal for this night: To get through it without anyone calling her a couch.

Kim-Kardashian-Kanye-West-Lanvin-2014-Met-Gala-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (1)Kim Kardashian and Kanye West attend the 2014 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Kim Kardashian is wearing a Lanvin dress and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. Kanye West is also wearing Lanvin.

Welp. Mission accomplished, Kim. But this is what happens when you set your goals so low. You achieve them, but it’s nothing to write home about. We’ve seen more interesting dresses at 8th grade dances.

Not that we hang around 8th grade dances assessing the fashion, or anything. We save our judgment for when people show us pictures of their children going to school dances.

Anyway, they look fine. Him more than her (which is no surprise). She clearly wanted to tone things down after last year’s disaster, but she kinda looks like she took a satin bedsheet and just belted it.

    • Scimommy

      I liked her bedspread dress better. Really. He is very well turned out.

    • thecitysleeps

      I think that dress looks awful! It has no actual shape to it except VOLUMINOUS and not in a good way! The colour is good I guess.

            • Le_Sigh

              YES. Stained with spilled champagne and day-old mascara tears.

      • FibonacciSequins

        She wanted that big ballgown look with none of the structure or detailing that makes a ballgown like that beautiful. Lazy designing and it shows.

      • Darren Nesbitt

        Does anyone think that Kim’s “va-va voom” style has been watered down by Kanye? Ever since they’ve been together she has become more and more shapeless. We know she got the body back after the baby (see Kim K. white bathing suit). So Is Kanye helping her chose these frumpy distracting shillouettes?

        • Mackenzie Miller

          I would actually disagree. Since Kim has been with Kanye she wears see-through mesh, lace, etc. outfits with unfortunate regularity. This is strangely covered up for her – I can’t see any of her undergarments.

          • Trent

            You missed all the earlier shots of her leaving the hotel for this event when she flashed her matching blue panties. Klassy as ever.

        • Alloy Jane

          I wouldn’t say that at all. I think this dress is more of her trying to be Vogue-worthy. But he hasn’t toned her down, that pleated pillow case has a crotch slit.

      • MK03

        Girls with figures should not wear anything that has enormous thick pleats at the waist.

    • Capt. Renault

      Psst! Kanye! You forgot your tie!

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

        And to leave his sourpuss face at home.

        • Ginger

          And to just stay home…period.

        • YoungSally

          He’s hitched now (apparently) and is living some combination of the hangover and groundhog day

        • trisker

          They both look unhappy — maybe they had a fight in the limo.

      • littlemac8

        His tuxedo pants are way too tight IMHO!

    • Introspective

      Definitely a belted bedsheet. one with a slit so high to let you know she’s got klass and good china.

      • Anna

        That’s Mrs. West alright. Klassy and kouture!

        • leahpapa

          Unflattering self-disclosure: I feel that Kim Kardashian’s success is a negation of almost the entire value system I was raised to believe governed the world. And, yeah – I was sold the mythology of an American meritocracy, but seriously, the fact that this woman garners attention and money activates a rage that only Madeline Kahn can explain: “I hate her… so…much. It—it.. the f—, it—flame… flames… flames on the side of my face….”

          • Introspective

            learning that america is anything *but* a meritocracy is one of those things i chalk up to both a) becoming a grownup and b) becoming american.

            welcome to the stars and stripes my dear leahpapa.

            • leahpapa

              Yup. Where it doesn’t really matter if you got famous for making a sex tape or inventing the artificial heart: the point is that people know your name and respect the wealth you’ve amassed. What a kountry. (I think that was actually de Tocqueville’s working title.)

            • Qitkat

              I am highly impressed that you worked de Tocqueville into this thread. Brings back long-ago college memories.
              I generally refrain from commenting on anything Kardashian, but I just have to say I echo all your sentiments.

          • Anna

            I hear you. But, it’s sadly not limited to celebrity culture. I’ve also seen the least deserving people get credit for something/be promoted/advance too many times to count even in the various places I’ve worked at.

            • leahpapa

              Sorry, in my hyperbole I may have overstated the role that KK played in my disillusionment. She is hardly the most grievous example of a talentless, unaccomplished person receiving recognition that is unearned; she just triggers a strong dislike in me. The white dude at a former job who inexplicably got a raise while three people of color who worked a lot harder were denied promotions? Yeah, that was much more painful than seeing a twit in a fancy dress at a party for famous people.

            • Anna

              No, I hear what you’re saying :). Certain celebs are the extreme versions of unaccomplished people receiving recognition that’s unearned. Her family in particular, as I think it’s pretty safe to say that they have absolutely nothing to offer and contribute nothing. But they will absolutely not hesitate to take advantage of anything and everything that comes with their fame.

          • Daisy Walker

            So sad that I can only give this one up vote. Bravo!

          • Danielle

            It makes me feel better to watch youtube interviews where Paris Hilton talks about how Kim Kardashian used to clean out Paris’s closet and other mundane housejobs just to be her friend.

            • Anna

              *snort* That conjures up a most delightful mental picture. I shall have to research this on my lunch break.

            • AnaRoW

              It’s sad that Paris Hilton, who actually doesn’t do anything, is being held higher than Kim who actually works. I realize it’s the sex tape that first got her noticed, but aside from that she’s a business owner who’s held one job or another since her teens. She has no creative talent but she’s hardly someone who sits around all day doing nothing. There are other famous people like Dita Von Teese and the “Real Housewives of…” who do less (like most reality stars) but don’t get the vitriol she gets.

            • Danielle

              As much as I hate to defend Paris Hilton, she’s also a mogul in her own right, with many successful business ventures.

            • Allie Santiago

              THANK YOU.

          • Kent Roby

            Preach, Hunty, preach! I loathe her and her ilk so much that I vowed a couple of years ago to never write or utter that name; at most I will refer to the family as “the K word” or “related to Bruce Jenner”. I will not watch any of the crap she or the rest of the litter star in; it even makes me really uncomfortable when one of them pops up on a show I do watch (like the one that was a judge recently on Drag Race).

            • leahpapa

              “She-who-shall-not-be-named” it is, then. (Also, you had me at hunty.)

            • Kathy

              She and her family have so little nutritional value that even Hannibal would take a pass on that. No substance whatsoever.

            • Kitten Mittons

              *guffaw*

            • sojourneryouth

              No fava beans or chianti. More like Kraft Mac’n’Cheese and Kool Aid.

            • Kathy

              Or Ho Ho’s and Ding Dongs. :)

            • Jacqueline Wessel

              I do the same thing. Totally ignore and avoid the K clan.

          • Mrs. C

            I bow to your Madeline Kahn reference. And everything else you said.

          • Kitten Mittons

            Do not know your musical tastes, but my favorite local band has a song based on MK’s speech from Clue. It’s called “Madeline Kahn.” The band is Vox & the Hound.

            I just love that someone wrote a whole song about that scene.

          • marlie

            I said “I’m done” to the bf last night after I saw a picture of not just these two, but one of the sisters at this event last night. Just NO.

          • numenah

            And she’s so very rich.

    • Coleen

      It’s an “attagirl,” but graded on a curve of extreme prejudice. (And I’m not talking about hers.)

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

        Definitely a solid “attagirl”.

        Him not wearing a tie is upsetting me unreasonably.

        • jtabz

          Nothing unreasonable about it!

        • B_C_J

          I agree. It’s as if he was in a rush & left the house without it.

        • TheDivineMissAnn

          I think he is intentionally not wearing a tie as a silent protest for having to go to the Met Gala.

        • demidaemon

          Same!

      • Rhonda Shore

        Considering her taste issues, this is a definite “attagirl”!

    • Jessica Freeman

      She let everyone know it had that damn pocket all dang night. It was overly safe, with a side of nothing exciting.

      Sad Kanye is always the most entertaining to me.

      • leahpapa

        Is it too early to call Sad Kanye the best meme of the year? My favorite caption to the pre-zipline photo: Why am I sitting in this plastic-ass chair?

        • Jessica Freeman

          No, never. That zip line photo cracks me up just thinking about it.

        • jw_ny

          you got me googling “sad Kanye meme”…some are hysterical! The sad Kanye (from the pre-zipline photo) sitting alone on the teeter totter, and the sad Kanye sitting in the urinal are my favs so far! XD

    • Anna

      This was boring, but Kim still managed to make it look cheap – while they’re not posted here, there are several photos where you can see her underwear (at least she’s wearing a pair!) it’s slit so high.

      • Constant Reader

        Alas, her wardrobe seems to have two settings: cheap and boring (this dress) or cheap and eye-searingly bad (most everything else she wears).

    • Nancer

      Come on, this dress has pockets! I love that! And I think it’s nice if unexciting.

      • StillGary

        But they are in the wrong place — if that’s where he needs to park his hand in public — the design could be more functional ;)

        • Nancer

          Ok, made me laugh!

    • hyperionic

      She looks huge in this. Really unflattering.

    • Anna

      It’s better than last year’s, but she’s only ever going to be invited as Kanye’s +1. That cover only happened because she’s his +1.

    • jw_ny

      His pants are way too tight…pretty obvious he dresses to the left. How tacky is that hand on her butt at an event like this…or even just in public…ack! He bugs me more than she does.

      • GillianHolroyd

        oh god you’re right. Those pants are really *really* odd-looking. How bizarre.

      • Capt. Renault

        This outfit of his *really* does bug me. Don’t get me wrong, I love when someone is an iconoclast and plays with the rules, but as with anything, you can only play with the rules once you have mastered them. White tie and tails are pretty much reserved for coronations, state dinners, inaugural balls, and Midnight Mass at the Vatican. If he had simply taken white tie and tails out of those settings, that would be one thing, but then he went further, with the tight pants and omitting the tie. It’s at that point where he’s not merely playing with the rules, but becomes a simple jackass, because you can’t play with or disregard the rules if you don’t know what the rules even are. It’s a total affectation, and it irritates me to no end. GRR.

        • Adriana

          But I thought the dress code for the men was white tie?

          • Capt. Renault

            Was it? If so, it was self-aggrandizing, impertinent, and wrong.

          • Capt. Renault

            I see that you’re right, that it was the dress code. Thank you for the correction. Kanye is excused a little bit, but just a little.

            • jw_ny

              I just have a hard time allowing any excuses for him…even with the tails as acceptable attire. The lack of a white tie, those awful pants, and the sleeves of the jacket, as Alicia points out…all just inexcusable for a so-called designer.

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

        Pants are too tight but too long, sleeves are too short. Just a really bad fit.

    • Malia C.

      That belt looks *so* cheap and the shoes are wrong, wrong, wrong.

    • StillGary

      Stay Klassy. Mr. $ Mrs. West!

    • cmb123

      I really dislike her shoes. Like really really

      • FibonacciSequins

        Payless

    • barbarienne

      I in fact have a satin bedsheet in almost that exact color.

    • Malia C.

      He’s just trolling everyone with the “Sad Kanye” meme face now, right? :)

      • MilaXX

        some of those pictures of hilarious!

      • TropiCarla

        Nah. I think he is just a petulant jackass.

    • Paula Pertile

      Aren’t his pants too tight?

      • FibonacciSequins

        I was wondering how he could sit down and eat dinner in those pants.

    • MsC

      Her hair, makeup and jewelry were fine. That shade of blue looks good on her. But she needs a better bra (or, just a bra). I hate pockets on formal dresses.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Yep-nothing much to see here. The slit is a bit high, but we are talking about a Kardashian, so that is no surprise. Kanye looks good. Movin’ on.

    • RussellH88

      I miss the hilarity of last year’s and the idea that she was forced to wear that ugly outfit.

      There’s no dramatic back story to this one other than “Kaaaanyeee, I wanna look hawwwwt tonight”

      • Malia C.

        The perfect compliment to his ballpark, “PLEEESE MARRY MEEE!!!” proposal ;)

      • sugarkane105

        I’m now angry with you for putting her voice in my head.

    • AzSportsGirl

      WOW. Their faces show they are not in a happy place. The dress is just so tragic.

    • AwwwTrouble

      So many of the dresses this year were too much wrinkly satin, and this is in that category. She looks great from the neck up – say why you will ,but she is a beautiful woman. From the waist up, she looks good. Entire ooh? Too much wrinkly volume.

        Thank you for my morning “hahahhaaaaMUAHahahahaha.”

      • makeityourself

        I thought the shoes were a very odd choice. Are they from Penneys?

    • Terri Terri

      Gag.

    • sugarkane105

      Her head looks gorgeous. That dress is not flattering, though, which is a shame because she really does have a nice figure under there somewhere. She still doesn’t know how to dress it.

      • FibonacciSequins

        Agree about her hair and makeup.

        • AvaLehra

          I am upvoting you on your user name alone. <3

    • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

      She could cheapen a dress made out of gold ingots.

      I’ve got many words I could call Kim, a couch is not one of them…

        Love Seat, perhaps?

        • Danielle

          Ottoman.

    • BlairBear

      wow he really can’t be bothered to push the whole happy couple thing can he.

    • Carrie

      The couch was classier. Jolie couldn’t pull a Jolie without looking foolish, Kim shouldn’t have tried.

    • A Shiny O’Connor

      He looks like he cant wait to get away from her and into a clucking gaggle of designers.

          YES. THIS.

        • Carleenml

          I’m seeing that in half the couple photos. BUGS ME.

      • muzan-e

        I look at these pictures with one of his verses from Hell of a Life playing through my head:

        What party is we goin’ to on Oscar day
        ‘specially if she can’t get that dress from oscar de
        La Renta, they wouldn’t rent her
        they couldn’t take the shame.
        Snatched the dress off her back and told her, ‘Get away’…

        I don’t want to bore anyone with a long and inappropriate essay about why I find the whole track compellingly vulnerable, but…

        Them being there is kind of a big deal. And they have the money to buy a person who will make her look like a goddess, and they have the lawyers to make sure that person’s NDA is watertight should it occur to him to run to the tabloids with a tell-all story titled “Kim Kardashian Klothing Konfusion!”

        And she shows up looking like this. And his pants don’t freakin’ fit. And no-one told him to keep his hand off her ass.

        I don’t understand.

        • formerlyAnon

          I don’t want it to be so, but I think it’s simple: one of them has way more shrewd than smart, the other has long let ego – inflated, bruised and otherwise – take the wheel.

          • muzan-e

            I really, really hate having to agree. I’d rather believe that shrewdness would lead a living franchise to take whatever measures were necessary to prevent herself from falling short of flawlessly appropriate – and it’s hard for me not to nurse a fair bit of genuine affection for a guy as prone to public vulnerability and over-sharing as Kanye, but –

            Yeah. And it’s just a damn shame. They got in their own way.

    • MilaXX

      Yeah she dumbed down entirely too much. She can turn it out when she wants to, but I think she tried to play it safe. The end result it this bundle of blah. Her hair and face look good though.
      I also don’t care for the slim cut of Kanye’s pants.

    • Anne

      Kanye looks like he wants to be anywhere but there.

    • SewingSiren

      Belted air mattress.

    • queeniethebold

      Ugh. For me, she will never, ever not be Miss Tickity Tackity Tacky. Occasionally she gets one thing right, but everything else is always Completely And Utterly Wrong. Always. If it’s not the shoes, it’s the slit in the dress. If it’s not the fabric of the dress, it’s the shoes. If it’s not the idiotic expression, it’s the fact that her fiance is classless too, with the hand on the butt. It’s the desperate need always to show boobage and/or hoochie. Endless.

      Also? i admit that my head always explodes at the thought that this person is famous and gets fab invites to fab events just because she’s famous. For being famous. She does nothing, absolutely nothing, but that. Be famous. So why is it so hard for her to, you know, get some decent fashion advice?

      • Jessica Freeman

        Because you cannot tell a woman like this that she needs help when she thinks she IS the standard.

      • marlie

        Let’s take it a step further back and remember WHY this person is famous.

        UGH.

        • queeniethebold

          Exactly.

      • demidaemon

        You know what really sucks: She’s not even the fun version of tacky. :(

    • JR Labrador

      He needs a tie and she needs to go away.

    • numenah

      The dress has potential, but draping rarely works on short-waisted, busty women. Still, she looks prettier than ever.

    • B_C_J

      Neither one looks comfortable. That said, she is undeniably beautiful. The dress is merely an improvement over last year’s horror. He looks worse. One DOES NOT wear tails without a bow tie.

    • IMNAngryLiberal

      Beautiful color on her, but the silhouette almost couldn’t be less flattering .. bunchy and wrinkled just isn’t a good look for anyone (albeit what I current have on, sitting here typing in my pj top and sweatpants).

    • SylviaFowler

      Everyone else at this thing who did not adhere to White Tie dress code should be ashamed of themselves. If these two can follow the rules, there is no excuse for all the others not to do so.

      • colleenjanel

        Except he has no white tie.

        • SylviaFowler

          That isn’t the point. He is wearing the rest of the white tie dress (white waistcoat, evening tailcoat, appropriately buttoned shirt). This is more acceptable (closer to code) than black tie or worse, which is what most of the celebrities did.

      • numenah

        I’m praying that the uncles post the shot of Tom Ford and Benedict Cumberbatch–white-tie godliness!

        • formerlyAnon

          I feel that we’re owed a few well-fitted, appropriate shoes, dull, nothing-to-discuss-here gentlemen as therapy.

      I’m no body language expert but the communication I am getting is not one of love and adoration.

      • Malia C.

        Honestly. I mean, if you don’t want to be somewhere, don’t go. If you do go, slap a half-smile on your face for the cameras and deal with it.

        • BlairBear

          he wants to be there I think even though he feels slighted by the fashion community I think it his companion that he objects to

          • Malia C.

            I suppose the prospect of having Lucifer’s Homegirl as your mother-in-law isn’t exactly rainbows and kittens either.

            Then again… he chose to get involved with them.

            • BlairBear

              I think this was a PR relationship that outlived its usefulness to him. Don’t feel bad for him in the slightest. He is so full of himself and for such little reason

            • Malia C.

              Oh I definitely don’t feel sorry for him. He reminds me of one of those friends or coworkers who is constantly complaining about how terrible a SO or job is but they never ever take steps to actually extricate themselves because they seem to thrive on being miserable.

            • BlairBear

              that part is frustrating also this belief that he is a genius if you are a genius focus your energy on being a genius and using your brain power to make positive changes. Genius’s generally don’t believe they are geniuses they set out thinking how they can change the world. Complacency and high self regard are the antithesis to genius

      • Billie_Dawn

        He always looks utterly miserable around her, and she looks like she’s barely aware of his existence.

        • BlairBear

          I think that is pretty much the long and short of it. Although to be fair to her he has never really expressed joy in public. I think it is because he is such a tortured and unrecognized genius (eye roll number 1)

    • Allie Carter

      He looks miserable.

    • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

      I like his shoes. Shame that he CANNOT SMILE at all.

      Is this a new thing? Like Grumpy Cat only Grumpy Kanye?

      • Imasewsure

        When you are a genius, it is hard to be anything but Grumpy Kanye… he’s always been like that…This is probably the happiest time in his life and he still looks like he stepped in something

        I think we Bitter Kittens need to turn Grumpy Kanye into the next meme

    • stubbornthoughts

      The botox is strong with this one.

    • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

      She looks fine — if anything, overly reserved. He looks like he’s in a coma.

    • MoHub

      Why is it that I never see the love in pictures of these two?

      • DTLAFamilies

        Ask Ricardo Tisci.

      • Vegas Girl

        Seriously – that 5th (I think) pic of just her face – her expression looks like she has just been reprimanded by him. I just don’t buy them as a happy couple.

      • alyce1213

        I think his hand on her ass covers the love element.

        • MoHub

          Afraid I’m an old fart who’s never gotten over the change in terminology when “sex scenes” in movies started being referred to as “love scenes.” Back in the day, a “love scene” was about romantic tension and chemistry, generally without naked bodies and beds.

          • alyce1213

            Deborah Kerr and Burt Lancaster were good for me!

            • MoHub

              Absolutely. But the sex was implied. We never saw the bathing suits come off, and we never saw them rolling around in bed. And th impact was greater because of that.

            • demidaemon

              This is exactly my philosophy. If you are going to show the actual consummation, it should have every element of good fiction: conflict, purpose, and tension. 90% of “love” scenes these days have none of these. And I’m not an old fart. Yet. ;)

            • DTLAFamilies

              If you are going to show the actual consummation, it should have every element of good fiction: conflict, purpose, and tension.

              Yes! There’s an old article on the Nerve website that has tips on writing love scenes and it can pretty much be boiled down to this.

            • demidaemon

              I actually have a book called The Joy of Writing Sex, which goes in-depth into all of the problems and techniques necessary for this types of scenes.

          • Qitkat

            Let’s hear it for old farts.

    • CB

      I think they look pretty darn good. Despite her best efforts sometimes, I don’t think Kim generally takes well to high fashion, so a slouchier, simpler look works in her favor.

    • J. Preposterice

      When I see them dressed simply like this, it’s clear how physically attractive they both are. He is hotness in that look, and she’s just so darn pretty. Pity I think both of them have tragically awful personalities.

    • J.W.

      On a positive note, I think the color is good for her. Does he have his hand on her bottom at a formal event?

    • notterriblybitter

      Since when do ballgowns have pockets? Or thigh-high slits for that matter?

    • Alfred Cox

      I actually think she looks really good. I mean, c’mon, it IS K.K after all. At least she has on something that can be mistaken for glamour.

      He looks very nice. Loving the homage to Fred Astaire and the Nicolas brothers. The tuxedo stripe was a nice touch too.

      Well done for both.

    • luludexter

      what an awful dress for her – it’s really unflattering in its shape. From the boobs up, though, she does look beautiful. Kanye, buy a tie and get your hand off your future wife’s ass…

    • ashtangajunkie

      All of the Lanvin and Lorraine Schwartz in the world would not be enough to mitigate the awful.

    • Sarah

      Kanye’s pants are way too tight. And seriously, we know you guys are a couple. Playing grab-ass on the red carpet is just gauche.

      • Qitkat

        This is the venue where hands in the pockets are infinitely preferable.

    • AnneElliot

      The color of the dress is really pretty on her, but other than that, it’s a little boring. That’s a lot of boobage AND thigh-high slit in one dress.

      And how does Kanye sit down without splitting those pants? Those are seriously tight. The tuxedo stripes are all ripply, they’re pulling so hard.

    • http://www.bigshinyrobot.com/ Kathleen

      I will say this – that fabric of that density and drape (I am so sorry I’m not schooled enough to know what it is, that thick, almost quilty satiny stuff) almost always looks wrinkly and disheveled on human beings but hers is still relatively fresh looking. Does look like a seam was repaired in the booty, though. It’s a beautiful color.

    • Annaline39

      I would have said drapes, but bed sheet works as well :)

    • melanie0866

      You’re giving Kanye a pass on those pants? Those wrinkled, too-long, poorly fitted trousers?

      And putting your hand on your date’s butt in public is just tacky.

      • boweryboy

        Add too tight as well.

    • gsk241

      She would almost be pretty if she weren’t so vacant.

    • alyce1213

      Last year an ugly floral couch, this year heavy sateen DRAPES!! He doesn’t look fine, his pants are way too tight (he’s wearing them like a pair of skinny jeans), his shoes are too clunky for formalwear, and his weskit is too long. He looks like shit and so does she.

    • Vegas Girl

      I don’t understand her choices. She is a tiny, though curvy, girl. She probably works out 6 hours a day. How does she consistently pick things that make her waist look 4 times wider than it really is? On a side note – those may be the first shoes I have ever seen her in that didn’t hurt my feet just looking at them.

    • CPK1

      I really dislike everything about the dress except the color combination. Hate hate the neckline and the shape makes her look like a sack of potatoes with a belt. Love the shoes .

    • Linderella

      It’s completely ill-suited to her body type, and so automatically makes a pretty gown look cheap and tacky. It’s a great color on her, though, so she’s moving a little bit in the right direction. Kanye is one of the very few men who knows to keep his hands out of his pockets on the red carpet.

    • http://www.readbarbara.com/ ReadBarbara

      Wow, that is not her dress. I love the color, but the shape, poor fit and trickery of it all screams for some toothpick girl who has no curves of her own and has to borrow them from her gown. Kim just looks weirdly lumpy in it.

    • KendraMR

      I can’t. Kanye looks like he’s channeling Pee-Wee Herman in white tie with those tight ass pants. Seriously, the ruching of his pants is my making my eye twitch. Everything has already been said about that girl, however I saw this morning on “Wendy Williams” that she had on a different belt (albeit one that looked like she got from the mall) and naked shoes when heading to their car. I guess Yeezy had to remind her that she was going to the Met Gala and not to a club in Miami..smh

    • Eva_baby

      I love the detail of he bodice. I also like the draping of the dress. I think the fabric is not great and the shape does her shape no favors. This would have looked much better on a clothes hanger figure. This is not the dress for a woman of her proportions . Also, I think Kanye is doing performance art. He knows people are talking about ‘sad face’ and he’s running with it.

    • AnaRoW

      Those pants are pretty tight on him. Is that a thing now? As for Kim, I feel like her clothing has gotten a lot worse since she hooked up with him. She was never great at it but she was better. I think, pattern aside, I liked last year’s dress better.

    • unbornfawn

      If you are going to the trouble to wear a beautiful set of tails, YOU WEAR THE F***ing TIE! It makes it look like neither he nor any of his minions know how to tie one. Hand off her ass. Classless. Her? Yawn.

    • Imasewsure

      At least last year’s dress was full on ug-ly!! This one is boring, ill-fitted … oh yes, and also ugly….

    • boweryboy

      “… she kinda looks like she took a satin bedsheet and just belted it.

      This. Exactly. She went from a couch to a bedsheet. Next year, a slip cover?

      • demidaemon

        PLEASE. NO.

    • random_poster

      My favorite thing of all when TLo post pics of these two are the comments made by the BKs, but I have a question. If no one comments on them does that help them go away?

    • uprightcitizen

      He does know they’re taking his picture, right? There’s bitchface, and THEN there’s whatever he’s doing. Sorry your life is so tough that smiling is inconvenient. You just moved up to 11 on the douche-meter Kanye (you were already at 10). I was going to mention my irrational dislike for them both, but then realized, when it comes to these two, there’s nothing irrational about the dislike. They’ve earned it. Oh, and her dress is heavy, tacky, and ill-fitting, and he’s not wearing the right shoes for those pants at all.

      • jw_ny

        Actually…he’s not wearing the right pants for those shoes, or for any shoes for that matter. ;)

    • Kitten Mittons

      I would go find my last rant about her and copy and paste, but that might imply that I give a flying fig, which I do not.

      Go home. Don’t start over.

    • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

      Meh, but it’s the best she’s looked in a while.

    • http://www.bertkeeter.com Bert Keeter

      Underwhelming… Hair, makeup could not be more pedestrian.

      • MoHub

        Well, obviously, you’d have done a lot better, Bert. But then, you have a sense of class.

        • http://www.bertkeeter.com Bert Keeter

          Thanks…. I’m sorry to say but class and style seem to be a liability these days… doesn’t fit in with clients that are just interested in boundless attention whoring and media coverage!

    • crash1212

      Whatever. Over them. Please stop.

    • Little_Olive

      Her eyebrows are so… produced.

    • Little_Olive

      Second comment: he so cannot pull off nonchalant, it’s sad.

    • KinoEye

      I’m disappointed, Kim. I wanted something even fuglier than last year’s fiasco. This is just boring. You want to be the perpetual center of attention, right? Go back to the couch dresses and making hilariously awkward videos with Kanye.

    • MoreShoes

      How can you say that he looks fine in his skinny tuxedo?! Why do they even make skinny tuxedo’s?

    • Coleslaw McGraw

      We are just THIS CLOSE to seeing her bits. And I am just not comfortable with that at all.

    • formerlyAnon

      I like it on her. The over-high slit keeps it from being deadly dull, without making it interesting. And she looks pretty, which she is, and which doesn’t always come through. I think his trousers are way too tight from hips to knees for formal wear. Am I wrong, arbiters of man-style?

    • KT

      I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Kim Kardashian is wearing something too baggy. Yep, that sentence was just uttered. But seriously — all the puffiness of that dress is just unflattering and not doing her curves any favors. I do like the color on her, I will say. And at the end of the day, I think we can all praise Jeebus that she isn’t wearing high-collared floral maternity upholstery.

    • MannahattaMamma

      Nope. She’s not the couch. Now she’s the pouf in front of the couch. That dress has some unflattering pleated stuff going on just where most women (even Miss Kim) have their own natural pleating & padding. Plus a belt? Feh. She’s a footstool.

    • nannypoo

      He looks like a lot of fun.

    • Froggae

      He’s punking us and she’s not in on the joke.

    • what not

      Sorry, they look so miserable together that I’m having a hard time seeing the clothes.

    • EmilyMullasWilson

      Anyone else find the ass-grab a little off putting?

      • MilaXX

        A few men were handsy like that. Ryan Reynolds gave Blake a similar butt palm.

      • ItAin’tMe

        I do. Yeah, we get it Kanye…it’s your property.

      • jackie

        yes! we know you’re married and sleeping together …. you don’t have to remind us.

        • formerlyAnon

          Well, we know you’re married. Butt grabbing for the photographers always makes me wonder about the sleeping together.

    • marlie

      The bodice could have been interesting, but I don’t know why anyone would put her in a dress that adds bulk to her hips. I’m all for showing off one’s figure, but I hate how this dress just adds bulk, and doesn’t accentuate her curves.

      And I’m mortified that KK is better-dressed than Lupita. What is the world coming to?

      Also, also, Kanye needs to crack a frigging smile every once in a while.

    • VermillionSky

      Couch, no. Tufted satin ottoman from the ladies room in a mid-sized city’s symphony hall, yes.

    • LeelaST

      Hers was mall formal wear for me, and extremely unflattering below the waist.

    • Lizzy

      Not a fan of the skinny tuxedo pant.

    • webslice33

      couch? NO! Curtain? YES!

    • FancyPhilly

      Anyone notice in the last picture that he kind of has a face in his head wrinkles? The face is laughing.
      I don’t like the dress, the fit is horrible. I like her earrings and her hair looks nice. (By the way, I think an ass grab on the red carpet is tacky).

    • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

      She: is reminding me of those late-80’s-early-90’s movies full of sexy rich people doing sports with boys from the wrong side of the tracks (Aspen Extreme, The Cutting Edge.) She’d be the unhappy trophy wife who takes a scruffy lover.

      He: needs to get his hand off her ass. They are not literally at an 8th-grade dance.

    • Kathie

      The stuff that she is wearing lately make me miss her bandage dress. At least THAT was flattering. THIS is NOT.

    • Corsetmaker

      That is one of the most unflattering dresses in the history of unflattering dresses! He just has a face I’d never tire of slapping. But I kind of like the tight tux trousers.. well I would on someone else.

    • suzq

      Kanye forgot his tie and the proportions on that Lanvin jacket are all wrong. Clearly a French snub to British aristocracy and Carson on Downton Abbey would have none of it! He’d tackle Kanye to the ground and wrestle that suit off of him. Or get Bates to do it. Maybe Thomas “lost” the tie. Someone needs to find it.

      • jabes

        The tails on his coat have the weirdest shape, and are they supposed to be that long? It looks almost like he’s wearing half a skirt or something.

    • JaCory Deon

      Why does he always look so miserable when photographed with her? I mean, I know her voice is annoying and all, but…

      Her hair and makeup look nice. ;)

    • Lilithcat

      Oh, and he is so classy with his hand on her ass.

      Somebody send these people home.

      • Judy_J

        Yeah, the hand-on-the-ass just smacks of junior high public display of affection.

    • https://www.facebook.com/pages/Words-in-Design/158664667624412 Tejana

      No smiles for fear her face will crack! Plastic faces are so interesting, aren’t they?

    • rocketinu

      Oh man – I come in to get my daily dose of fashion and fun and there she is – ick. The shoes are all wrong for the dress. So – when they eventually break up who gets custody of Anna Wintour?

    • amanda lynn

      He seems to always look like he’s pouting. Like a child.

      • dschubba

        I’m not giving him a pass for some of the shitty things he’s done, but I think a big part of that is a combination of chubby toddler cheeks and Resting Bitchface. Maybe even a touch of Diamond Tooth Regret.

        • amanda lynn

          There’s diamond tooth? Ugh… regret…

          • dschubba

            Yeah. He lost most of his front teeth in a car accident and had the top ones replaced right off the bat. I think he was missing the bottoms for a while, but he might have had a bridge or something. Either way, he eventually had them replaced with a permanent diamond grill, because rap fads never ever go out of style.

            As someone who’s seen more than her fair share of dental procedures, I can’t imagine a legitimate dentist replacing functional teeth with jewelry, but then I remember how money works and it all becomes clear.

    • bravobravp

      More of a chaise lounge

      • Not applicable

        I agree- it still looks like upholstery fabric to me…

    • andreawey

      A match made in douchebag heaven…….

    • GillianHolroyd

      Okay, this is strange. Google “kk wardrobe malfunction” (US mag) but forget the malfunction part, she’s leaving the hotel (?) wearing a leather bondage belt, barely-there shoes AND she’s wearing leather cuffs on each wrist.

      Clearly she had to pass AW’s inspection before she was allowed out on the red carpet and all the tacky stuff was stripped of her. Too funny!

      • Glammie

        Anna Wintour is never gonna live down trying to make Kim Kartrashian a style icon. The girl’s got trashy taste deep in her blood.

    • Joanna

      Way to look like you want to be there, Ye. You did dress very stylishly, though, which I guess is the point.

    • deb

      That poor woman really doesn’t seem to have an awareness as to what is flattering on her. I dig that her gown has pockets… although that’s the last thing a curvy girl needs. And I’d buy that look on him a lot more if he had a flannel shirt tied around his waist under the topcoat….

    • GeoDiva

      Seems that Lanvin is just bed sheets with a belt lately. Remember Emma leather traah bag one?

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      What I love is how incredibly, joyously happy they both look.

    • Fräulein K.

      I feel bad for her. I don’t suppose she’s capable of camping it up, but I would love to see her in something trashy and fun. Trashy and boring is so depressing.

    • fursa_saida

      I know everyone loves to hate her and her style, and I’m not here to argue with it. But lately, in general…she is a better-looking woman than she has been looking lately. Even with her trashy style and so on, I’m saying, there has been a dip, and not in the trashy direction, just in the general…I don’t know.

      I do know that they look miserable in each other’s company, which certainly doesn’t help.

    • Miss Paula

      a) Kim’s dress looks like a reversible duvet that’s been belted at the waist and b) WHY does Kanye feel that it’s appropriate to have his hand on her rear in public? My eyes, they hurt from the uncontrollable rolling.

    • Belvane

      Bet she got a cramp in her right leg from Jolie-ing it all night. By the way, in my city there’s a Couch St., but it’s pronounced Cooch. I will say no more.

    • elirt

      The only reason she chose this was because the cinched waste is so tight to make her look as hourglass as possible. I get it but BORING!

    • BluesD

      Pretty color but it looks someone just rolled her in a big wrinkly curtain and belted it in place.

    • MaryMcClelland

      It’s not very flattering, but nothing she wears ever is, so… I mean the proportions are all off. If this was “custom made” for her that’s embarrassing. Also wasn’t the theme about lady-like glam. I guess this is as close to that as it’s gonna get with Kim. Blah

    • DesertDweller79

      He looks really good. Her dress is a total yawn.

    • Call me Bee

      Ugh. Of course the satin bedsheet had to have a slit up to her hoo-hoo. It just makes me mad.

    • GorgeousThings

      He looks like a vinegar-filled douchebag.
      She looks like Anna Wintour’s curtains.

    • wontons

      I really like that color on her. Can’t say the same for the fit. Still, it’s not horribly vulgar or anything.

      • Trickytrisha

        Not vulgar when she’s standing still, plenty vulgar when her crotch peeps out from that side slit while she’s walking.

    • Kathleen

      From sad couch to curtains that would make Scarlett weep.

    • LadyVimes

      Kanye looks bored, she looks boring.

    • LaSylphide

      I wonder if Kim Kartrashian and Vickey Beckham had a little chat.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      I am glad that she has turned away from trying to turn herself into Bey’s clone. So I applaud that.

    • Tara Gray Burkholder

      A) Was I asleep when tails came back in style?
      B) On what planet is it appropriate to grope your Baby Mama in the Red Carpet?
      C) I suspect that dress was an attempt to hide her rapidly expanding ass.

    • St. Ace

      She needs to ask the Vogue make-up stylist for pointers, because she was never more beautiful than in that photo shoot. Cool it with the kontouring, Gurl.

    • mom2mateo

      Do his pants have to pool so much? Is it because he is so short and they did not want to cut those pants?

      Wrinkled and poufy. Better than the couch, but definitely only average.

      Isn’t white tie supposed to be worn with slip-in shoes, not tie-up oxfords? Or is that an obsolete rule now?

    • http://weirdinedgewise.blogspot.com ONEWEIRDWORD

      I think they both look quite pretty, if a bit glum.

    • gefeylich

      This dress is Victorian settee-ish, which I suppose is an improvement on last year’s overstuffed davenport. She still looks like the nouveau-riche striver she is, though. Kanye looks ridiculous in costume.

    • smh4748

      The dress is pretty wrong in all sorts of ways, but that is a gorgeous color on her. In the pictures, at least, it looks a bit brighter than navy, and it’s a pretty color.

    • JynxTheCat

      Can you imagine anything more detestable than being present for a conversation between these two?
