Kim Kardashian Out Shopping at Barneys New York

Posted on August 11, 2015

On the one hand, you’ve got to admire the commitment. On the other hand… well, we’re kind of snickering like a couple of bitchy ladies-in-waiting behind the other hand.

But we do mean the first part; about admiring her for the commitment to her brand. We wrote the book (or a book) about the neverending celebrity poledance, and she’s living the #BeMeorDoMe way of life. We’re duty bound to salute her for that. She’s Kim Damn Kardashian and she will NEVER let anyone forget it. This outfit may look pretty ridiculous in her present state (in truth, there’s no “may” about it), but it’s the sartorial equivalent of a brand logo.

But that’s at least partially what makes it simultaneously so silly. Like it or not, she’s one of the most photographed women in the world. She’s reached Jackie/Marilyn/Diana/Madonna recognition-level status on that front (you’re yelling in protest right now but it’s true) and thus, she could wear pretty much any damn thing she wants and still be recognized as Kim Kardashian. In other words, this outfit is also kind of laughable, both because it’s not at all flattering on a pregnant woman’s body, but also because of the serious level of overkill. We get it, girl. You’re Kim Kardashian.

It looks like shapewear separates. We love the addition of the giant coat. She prides herself on her walking-away view and we have to assume this outfit wasn’t serving her well in that area so she just went for the cover-up. It probably never occurred to her to just ditch this style and wear things more flattering while she bakes her baby. Gotta maintain the brand image at all times.
