Not to be bitches or anything, but showing up at the VMAs in such a Kardashianesque Balmain dress smacks of wannabe-ism to us. Although members of the genus Kardashia don’t tend to favor such bold colors, so she’s got that going for her. It’s wildly overdesigned, in keeping with the current Balmain aesthetic. But if we take it on its own terms, it’s not necessarily a bad look – especially for this particular venue. Our only real criticism is that it’s just kind of tired at this point. Even the members of the genus Kardashia aren’t wearing these types of frocks anymore.
