Kim Kardashian effectively kills this horrendous purple-orange trend


Seriously: what is up with the orange-purple combinations lately? The only answer I can come up with is some kind of fashion-industry hive-mind, because it’s literally impossible to me that designers around the world saw photos of Cheryl Cole in her tragic purple, orange and turquoise ensemble and thought “I should do that!” Is the fashion industry punking us? Ugh. Anyway, as you can see, once Kim Kardashian adopts a trend, that trend is pretty much dead. Kim is wearing “the new thing” – a Gucci ensemble in purple and orange. Just like Cheryl Cole:


And just like Jessica Alba:


WTF? I don’t get this. To me, this color combination is cartoonish, not chic. It’s Tim Burton’s Joker, not Christopher Nolan’s Joker. It’s just unflattering. Of course, Kim’s ensemble is especially bad. She should not wear belly shirts. Her Size 4 is spilling out.

By the way, did you hear that Kim is definitely going to get a pre-nup? According to Us Weekly/Hollywood Life, “Her mom, Kris Jenner, drew up the contracts…Kim’s Beverly Hills home and all of her assets are protected. Additionally, she keeps anything she earns during the marriage.” Apparently, Kim has a lot more in the way of assets than Kris Humphries. She’s worth $65 million, and she’s pulling in $12 million a year. I’ve read that Kris only makes, like, $3 million a year. “Only.” I know.

    Is this a return of the orange people/Bhagwan cult of from the 80s?

    Don’t these women have mirrors?

  2. embertine says:

    I think purple and orange can really work together, but none of these three women is even coming close to pulling it off. The orange is too salmony and the purple is too vivid. Go for a deeper purple with a more burnt orange and it’s fine.

  3. Snazzy says:

    Kim’s stomache looks bulgy and pasty looking…def not a good look for her….she should stick to getting pissed on in the shower, the golden colors are more fitting :)

  4. harper says:

    Jennifer Lawrence wore Kim’s outfit on the cover of Flare Magazine. I don’t think I need to say that Jennifer won that battle of “Who Wore it Better?”

  5. katiemarie says:

    Her shoulders look like a linebacker. I bet she’s trying to stir up “baby bump” rumors by wearing this, as it’s not the most flattering…

  6. Annabella says:

    The darts in her skirt are pulling hard core. She should have gone up a size!

  7. chicana says:

    Kim Kardashian always looks like a 5$ hooker. Though Ive been wearing purple and orange together for years.But only with accessories or a t-shirt and sweater.

  8. KimnotKardashian says:

    Blech. I’m all for ragging on this bitch’s terrible style, but the throwaway body shaming is just juvenile.

  9. bub says:

    I’m sure she thinks she looks gorgeous.
    she looks like a fool.

  10. Quest says:

    OMFG when will the Looney Toons color scheme and ill-fitting clothes end (size 4- riggghhht!).

    I would like this color combo on a child or someone much younger like JL not the these grown ass women in hollywood

  11. Fashion Gyal says:

    This dress was gorgeous on the runways and the print magazines. It is horrendous on Kim because she is too fat to wear it.

  12. 4Real says:

    O-M-G…who let her go out like that??

    Whoever it was don’t like her.

  13. Blue says:

    she needs to never wear that type of outfit again. she seems to think she can pull of anything. all of them need to get a clue and stop wearing clothes that are at least a size too small. Even Kourtney who is the smallest wears clothes too tight. it’s like they don’t know the difference between fitting and being tight. Just because you can get it on doesn’t mean it fits. I can get into my pre- baby jeans but i can’t breathe.

  14. Mikki says:

    Jennifer looks SO much better in that outfit, despite the dubious color combo! Kim must have a funhouse mirror in her bedroom – making objects appear differently from what the rest of us see…

  15. NoFrank says:

    It’s not the color combo I object to so much as the awful high-waisted pants and skirts (Jessica Alba excepted, of course, because she’s pregnant and her waist is just, you know, high at this point). That silhouette was bad in the 80′s and it’s bad now.

    ETA Jennifer Lawrence is beautiful but I’ve seen so many photoshopped magazine covers lately that I have to wonder if she really looks that good in that outfit or if she just had the benefit of an online artist getting rid of any inconvenient bulges.

  16. brin says:

    Hope this isn’t a trend…guess it already is. Seems the Kardashian spin machine is in overdrive….Kim also wants to get pregnant soon and is threatening to sue “In touch” about a cheating story. Lovely family.

  17. John Wayne Lives says:

    Oh for FS!

    that’s all i got

  18. Alaska says:

    I really dislike that random cutout on Kim’s outfit. What’s the point of it, besides showing yet more skin? We’ve seen enough of your skin to last a lieftime, Kim!

  19. Rita says:

    I think the Libyans should consider it for their new flag.

  20. bros says:

    I love it, but Kim is not pulling it off in her stuffed sausage outfit.gross.

  21. Katie says:

    I don’t mind the color combination. The dress doesn’t flatter Kim b/c of the cutout and b/c she generally should go a size up from what she wears. On Cole the cut of the pants bothered me, as well as the belt. And I know Alba is pregnant, but I just think she looks bad there. I really think the color combo could work though if done correctly.

  22. yepp says:

    okay the orange and yellow is already gross. like canival on crack. but kims out fit omg really? she must be super confident in her self to go out looking like a low class hooker… u know what they say… money cant buy class!

  23. Dhavy says:

    Why do these people feel the need to follow all the trends including the fug ones?

    If I was a designer I’ll come up with the tackiest crap, sit back and watch these women make asses of themselves wearing them while I get rich from their lack of style

  24. Eileen says:

    She looks like she’s about to pop out of it.

  25. the original bellaluna says:

    Somewhere, cutting-edge designer Rainbow Sherbet Bright is laughing her ass off.

  26. Dominique says:

    It is a current trend. It’s called color blocking. Where you pick two bright colors and place one up top and one at the bottom. The colors don’t have to be purple and orange, but that does seem to be a popular combination. If you do it right and it’s on the right girl, the result does tend to be really cute and fun.

  27. bagladey says:

    I love that colour combination but Kim’s dress is awful, especially the long sleeves, and to top that ill-fitting mess off with that gold belt is just gaudy; and Kim’s face seems to have lost its beauty.

  28. Regina Phalange says:

    She is so not a size 4…

  29. Ron says:

    She’s not a streetwalker…she’s a call girl.

  30. TeeTee says:

    Everything they wear always looks so severe, its never subtle..

    Horrid chicks, just horrid.

    they make everything look so cheap and severe.
    the stomach bulging out and that tight face and tricky eye w/tons of makeup looks horrible, just horrible.

    WE could control when they go away, but someone is stilll watching and buying their bullcrap–and there are alot of you, LOL

    its not me, and I have no children–my husband doesn’t watch television, so I am clear on that one.Actually no one in my circle is on that Trashian train.

    their fans must be undercover, because their 15 mins should be done by now.

  31. Toe says:

    she looks good. I like the color combi

  32. gab says:

    Totally agree: He/she looks like a linebacker. A big one. Perhaps he/she is a size 4 linebacker uniform? Snazzy – That must be her only discernable “talent.”

  33. Zombie Nurse says:

    Oh Honey, that is not your dress. That is some other girl’s dress.

  34. Keljo says:

    I actually don’t mind the color combo but KK’s outfit is just horrendous (or is that whore-endous?).

    The season premiere of White Collar was last night, and while I haven’t gotten through the entire episode yet, they did take a good swipe at the Kardashians. The character Mozzie (portrayed by the awesome Willie Garson), in describing an airplane, said something alone the line of “Think of it as a Kardashian. Not much in the way of refinement, but a lot of cargo area.” Loved it.

  35. mln76 says:

    I doubt KK on her own is actually worth 65 mill considering she never showed up on the Forbes list. Possibly it’s a number that reflects the combined wealth of each sister or possibly it’s a number that came out of Kris Jenner’s ass.

  36. Blue says:

    Lol @ mln
    I thought I read somewhere that the family wealth was 65 mill

  37. Lisa Turtle says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Soooo misguided.

    Hello Jasmine!

  38. fabgrrl says:

    It takes a lot of money to look that cheap.

  39. Amanda G says:

    Wow…that dress does not flatter her curves at all.

  40. June says:

    “She should not wear belly shirts. Her Size 4 is spilling out.”

    Love it!

  41. gamblea says:

    Kim is looking more like a gross cartoon everyday. Loved Mozzie and his cargo reference.

  42. J.D.M.J. says:

    … The darts in her skirt are pulling hard core. She should have gone up a size!

    Don’t you mean the darts in her skirt are screaming for their lives?

  43. ladybert62 says:

    Her hips look HUGH in that skirt! UGLY!

  44. Lizzard says:

    So, she’s on the same clothing scale as Kristie Alley then?

    Her left butt cheek couldn’t fit into a size 4! And I love how she’s constantly denying any rumor of her plastic surgery and enhanced butt. Ummm, is she forgetting pictures do exist of her before she morphed into an actual cat faced clown? She didn’t have near the ass she does now. Also, she should have stopped about 5 faces ago at this point… She’s starting to look more scary in every picture I see of her!

    Everyone is right though, she should always go for the next size up whatever sze she truly wears, nothing seems to fit her properly… Orange and purple are a hideous combination! At least when they are really bright colors like all of those women have on. Maybe if it were a deeper plum or eggplant purple, but the brightness of both colors make the outfits look cheap and cartoonish…

  45. Kim says:

    She isnt remotely in good enough shape to wear that. She has a flabby tummy. That belt is hanging on for dear life!

  46. Kasey says:

    @ Brittney: WHOAA!!! I looked at that link. I thought that was Rosie H-W! Doe anyone else notice that Jennifer and Rosie look alike?

  47. Mimi says:

    The 80s were terrible- fashion-wise. Please, don’t bring back bad taste.

  48. dj says:

    Even more laughable than this ensemble is that (if anyone remembers) that KK was a “stylist” for Brandy!!!

  49. Emma says:

    God, stop calling her fat! She looks like hell. Can’t we just focus on her jacked face and her terrible outfit? Must we call a SMALL (and she is small… probably not a size four, but she is much smaller than the American average twelve) girl fat?

  50. jemshoes says:

    I think the fashion industry is always punking us! And then it laughs behind its puffy sleeves when the outfits go from catwalk to sidewalk. ;)

  51. CeeCee says:

    I’m suprised Kim wore the open belly top, you can’t wear Spanx with that. Plain gross….

  52. Emily says:

    That skirt’s so tight, it looks like she’d only be able to take little shuffling steps.

  53. fallen says:

    What is going on with the cut out? Is that her shape wear? gross

  54. Parisienne says:

    it can look quite nice, here Charlotte Casiraghi (her mother is Princess Caroline of Monaco) in the same dress … she looks stunning

  55. Annie says:

    I don’t completely hate the dress – I can see this working on a tall skinny brunette like say Miranda Kerr. Kim somehow manages to look like she’s drowning in too much fabric and like a stuffed sausage at the same time.

  56. Charlotte says:

    Kaiser, I don’t get this trend either. It’s awful. Kim’s outfit is pretty bad, even if it were in different colors. That belt is not flattering her size 4 figure! LOL! Although Jessica Alba’s look is a might fug also.

  57. T says:

    This dress looks great on Kim, she has the best body in the industry.. Just ask your man. Those of you saying she is fat & larger than a 4 probabaly have no ass & look poor.. For those of u that don’t know that slang.. You look like you can’t afford food!! Lol and we all know that women with a booty are leading the industry.. Kim K, J-Lo, Beyonce.. So do yourself a favor and stop hateing & eat and work out.. You to can get a banging hourglass body.
