Kim Kardashian responds to nonsensical criticism that she wore visible Spanx

What is it about Kim Kardashian’s style that makes otherwise sane people go completely crazy? Kim is a horrible dresser in general. Every so often, she’ll chance upon a flattering ensemble, but she usually cocks it up with drag queen makeup, bad hair and tragic shoewear. But most of the time, Kim’s style is just terrible from head to toe. For a curvy “size 4” she really doesn’t know how to dress for her figure, and she often looks much larger than she is in reality (reality = “nowhere near a size 4, but still not overweight”). Earlier today, I even covered PETA’s latest criticism of Kim – she was wearing some hideous python boots, and PETA hates her even more. I kind of understood that scandal. I don’t really get this one, though.

In these photos, you can see that Kim is wearing that same hideous Stella McCartney cocktail dress that everyone has already worn. Kim was photographed in the Stella dress and various blogs and outlets claimed that Kim “ruined” the dress by wearing visible Spanx. Except that Kim isn’t wearing Spanx, according to Kim. She bought the dress like this, with fug nude panels in the midsection.

She’s got some of the most famous curves in the world — so why would Kim Kardashian restrict ‘em with Spanx?

On Monday, the reality star — who’s had a mini fashion makeover since embarking on a romance with Kanye West — was photographed in Paris wearing a fashion-forward polka-dot dress featuring a sheer panel.

Several media outlets slammed the look, and claimed that Kardashian, 31, was wearing Spanx or similar shapewear to reign in her voluptuous bod.

“No Spanx here!” Kardashian explained on her website Tuesday. “I wore this gorgeous polka dot Stella McCartney dress out yesterday and I’ve seen some publications saying I’m flashing my Spanx or control underwear underneath the dress,” wrote the E! star. “But that’s exactly how I bought it with those nude panels inside. So no Spanx here! Stella made a full collection with these sheer panels on the side, and this is how my dress came!”

Kardashian has been in the City of Lights with her rapper beau as he travels Europe with pal and collaborator Jay-Z on their “Watch the Throne” tour. And, with fashion-friendly West at her side, Kardashian has switched up her style — going from cartoonish to more au courant, elegant looks and designers, including McCartney, Lanvin, Emilio Pucci and others.

First point: why would any woman be “slammed” for wearing Spanx? It’s just shapewear, and yes, you shouldn’t be able to see your shapewear through a transparent dress, but what’s the BFD? Second point: the Stella dress is just awful in general, with or without the nude panels, but with the panels it’s really, really bad. Third point: this is a dress every woman was wearing… LAST YEAR. Kim can afford new Stella if she wants it. Don’t get the worst version of last year’s style.

    Too bad they don’t make brainspanx because Kim really needs one.

  2. Maguita says:

    Momma Jenner is really amazing at her job: We are talking about her number one product, Kim, even taking the time criticizing her so passé dress and spanx.

    HUUUHH of eternal frustration. The publicity money-making machine is working to the Kardashian’s advantage, it seems.

  3. Skaffeke says:

    And the freakshow continues…

  4. ZigZagZoey says:

    Well, the other photo sure looks incredibly different!

  5. PeaSoup says:

    She looks ridiculous. The mirrors in her house must be fun house mirrors.

    • smith says:

      Funny you mention mirrors. I don’t believe the woman has ever turned around or even sideways to see how she really looks. Her “mirrors” must be three thin strips placed horizontal on the wall:

      - One positioned for a close-up of her spider lashes/cat eyes
      - One placed at cleavage level
      - One to view her lovely calves

      Perfection, let’s roll!

  6. Zoid says:

    Oh, and here I was thinking her and every other celeb famewhore naturally had the perfect body… *snort*
    How inconvenient for Kim that they included those panels, which happen to look so very similar to shapewear.

  7. ok says:

    I’m shocked Kim would even reply to something so stupid as a controversy about spanx…must have an easy life if THIS is something that gets her upset…”like omg i’m totally not wearing spanx like really…you know”. LOL wow.

    She seriously has horrible fashion sense.

  8. Psyren says:

    She really likes those boots doesn’t she?

  9. Genevieve says:

    An epic FAIL, as we’ve come to expect from the curviest little Kardashian. Please God…make her go away! *puts hands over eyes, clicks heels three times and….* Oh, wait, does that work for making Kardashians disappear? Ugh. Kim, get a better stylist. Or get a stylist, period.

    • ok says:

      can you believe she used to work as a stylist before she became famous? But I think her only actual clients were Ray-J and Brandy.

      I can only imagine what goes through Kim’s mind “like ok im going to paris for like 5 days and I have to make sure they take like pics of me each day and like blog about it so I have to find the worst outfits to wear for like each day”.

      • Genevieve says:

        @ ok: Brandy and Ray-J, that actually sounds about right. She’s always going for that “rap chic” look, which is tragic within itself. Also, am I the only one who noticed the trout pout in the first picture above? It’s so bad that her lips look like Stay Pufts in profile, lol.

  10. aud says:

    it’s probably spanx and she just didn’t plan on getting photographed from the side.

  11. Macey says:

    I cant imagine my life’s worth consisting of what to wear, what can i do to get in the press, and dispelling rumors about my ass and spanxs. This family is about as meaningless, superficial and worthless as you can get.

    • mojoman says:

      ^This +100.
      This chick (the whole clan actually) is so out of touch with reality. Normal people like you and I worry about family, work and kids but in KKK’s world it revolves around what clothes to wear and how people perceives them. I find it SAD!

  12. emily says:

    First point: Kim is a loser
    Second point: She maybe can afford it with her whoring money, but she doesn’t have the power to get exclusive dresses right when they come out–so she always settles for old stuff that all the REAL celebs already wore
    Third point: Kim is KNOWN for wearing spanx— in fact she even said it–its something she has to wear under clothes

    And I don’t think people were slamming wearing spanx period, but wearing spanx with that particular dress is wrong and tacky, but what do you expect from a kardahian

  13. Tinypie says:

    Her ass look so dumb. Why do men think all that fake stuff is sexy?

    • pj says:

      it’s weird because most men say they like girls who are more natural and have very little make-up on but then they drool over half naked women with a tub of make-up on to the point where they don’t even look like a real human anymore. I think men want to jump in bed with girls like kim but would prefer to marry a girl who is more natural and low maintenance. Just a thought? As a side note, there are a lot of men who don’t like kim and find her extremely annoying and fake.

  14. Ainsley says:

    Ha! I made fun of her yesterday on another site for the visible undergarments situation happening in these photos. If you’re feeling like you need to be squeezed in, don’t wear a dress that’s mesh on the sides. The dress has been worn by a lot of other people already. Most celebs try to avoid that but I guess she doesn’t care.

  15. lisa says:

    She is wearing support not a big deal. It is obvious. You see that it goes all the way up and is her “bra” as well. Those are not side panels. Again not a big deal. But obviously it is not a good dress, especially to be wearing in the day time.

    I don’t know why she wears ankle boots with these kind of dresses. She is too short to pull it off. And it makes her look heavy.

  16. pj says:

    for someone who claims to be “so busy” and runs 10000 “businesses” she sure does have a lot of time to dress up and do nothing but get her picture taken and then read all the gossip sites and then complain about stories SHE helped create. She knows exactly what she is doing. I bet she was all dressed up and kanye had on jeans and a t-shirt per usual. So weird.

  17. ZigZagZoey says:

    Is she getting a kickback (in the ass) from Spanx for this?
    Wouldn’t put it past her….

  18. Happymom says:

    What really looks bad is that you can see her strapless bra. There’s also not enough support for her big boobs, so they’re hanging too low. And of course-that dress was ugly with the first group of celebs that wore it. Stella McCartney makes my eyes roll back into my head.

  19. Jover says:

    If only that were the worst sin of this sticky stupid famewh-re.

  20. Maggie says:

    Not overweight, she’s fat.

  21. Lisa says:

    Why would anyone even wear Spanx?

  22. Palefire says:

    I think what’s awesome is her trying to figure out how to navigate the narrow passage of the bush to get to the car with all her “add-on’s”

  23. faye says:

    She wears spanx cause she has ugly cellulite and is fat for a size 4.

  24. bgirl says:

    Those boots are the worst thing I have ever seen. And yes, she’s straight up FAT.

    • mojoman says:

      I dont think FAT is the right word. I despise the kardashians in terms of what they do for a living but it’s not correct to consider her body as FAT. Bottom & top heavy, yes! curvaceous, definitely! if you consider that body is fat, no wonder lots of young women/teens have body dysmorphia and eating disorder.

  25. skuddles says:

    Another bad dress – I have yet to see this girl wear anything that isn’t trashy or tacky or ill fitting.

    On another note, I have always marveled at how she constantly manages to pull of a completely empty, void-of-all-thought, expression. In every single pic. She’s like a pithed frog.

  26. gigi says:

    oh kimmy darling i absolutley hate this look if i had that body no way would i dress it up like that! no no no honey
