Kim Kardashian wears Givenchy sleeve-gloves at Met Gala: terrible or not awful?

The very first thing I saw this morning when I got up was everyone yelling about Kim Kardashian’s Givenchy dress at last night’s punk-themed Met Gala. Was Kim’s dress “punk”? No. Was it flattering? No. Was it cute in any way? No. But I still want to defend it, kind of.

Life & Style says that Kim decided “at the last minute” to wear this floral disaster, and she had to get it radically altered to fit her expanding pregnant body. Apparently, “She’s gained a lot of weight in her arms and her stylist has told her she should not show them off. So her dress now has sleeves when it was sleeveless before.” So that’s why the dress has SLEEVE-GLOVES?! Apparently, “Kanye is annoyed, as the dress is by his best friend Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy, and he feels embarrassed that Kim is messing with a beautiful piece of art.” Well, Kanye doesn’t look happy with her on the carpet, but he hasn’t looked happy with her in a while.

Obviously, there are a lot of problems with this dress, but really, people… it could have been SO MUCH WORSE. The floral fabric looks like a 1980s couch, the built-in gloves are giving her hands an “optical illusion” vibe, and I wish her hair was different. But still. It could have been way worse.

PS… OMG, her shoes are made from the same fabric. The Met Gala is not a bridesmaid convention!

    My great-grandma has a couch with nicer upholstery than that dress.

    The gloves are so ugly they’re making my eyes hurt.

  2. VGS says:

    Awful. Probably one of the worst dresses in fashion history! My grandmother’s couch has the same flower pattern!

  3. don't kill me i'm french says:

    i feel bad for her

  4. Alexis says:

    Geez – I don’t understand why she dresses the way she does – in her really causal outfits she looks so much better – this dress should not even be worn by a slender girl – much less a pregnant woman…80′s couch is an apt description…..get a stylist girl – you can afford it!!!

  5. Flahoola says:

    They look like gardening gloves

    • Nanea says:

      My daughter once got a plastic dustpan and brush with a similar pattern as a gift from a well-meaning aunt. Too bad she’s much more into pirates and cars!

      As to this Kouture disaster: I still have no idea why the Kartrashians can’t buy themselves a stylist who really knows how to do fashion. All that money, and it can’t buy them taste!

      • Janey says:

        Your puns are hilarious! Did she look in a mirror?, because she couldn’t have thought this was flattering.
        She CANNOT dress! The outfits she’s been wearing during her pregnancy does not flatter her at ALL!
        The clothes are UGLY,the separates she picks don’t coordinate, imagine she’s part owner of a fashion boutique! Micro-mini skirts in leather, tops too tight, breasts spilling out, unflattering, colors and fabric that don’t compliment each other, ugh! You have to know what works and what doesn’t for YOU!
        Who goes to New York, the Met no less with this fashion choice gone wrong? New York ladies going to work dress better than this.
        I don’t care WHO the designer is,if the dress is ugly, I’m not wearing it.
        No, you better come up with something better than that.
        That’s the problem with alot of celebrities, they rely on these narcissistic designers to experiment with them. They lie to their client
        “oh darling, you look marvelous” knowing it’s a fashion disaster. It’s your money, take control and let them know, ‘hey I don’t like this, it does nothing for me. Don’t be afraid of hurting their feelings, they’re hurting your brand. You’re the one who’s going to be a laughing stock.
        Some of them really GET who their client is and take their time designing something beautiful and flattering for that individual.
        She should have asked Oscar De La Renta, Donna Karan, Issac Mizrahi, Trina Turk, Chanel, Versace or some reputable high end designer on 7th Ave., with some fashion and common sense.
        I think this guy wanted to make a fool of her. She paid him for THAT? Get your money back. He used her to make a name for himself. THAT’s a fashion choice you DON”T want to be remembered for. Can’t erase the humiliation, but you can make better fashion choices in the future. Imagine how she’ll dress the baby…. She needs HELP out there. She can get tips from Kate Middleton, epitome of class, grace and style. Oh I forgot who we were talking about. Someone on 7th Ave., please help her, she’s clueless.

    • gogoGorilla says:

      The gloves are seriously creepy and scary. In some of the pics, they just kind of… blend. As if she doesn’t have any arms. Maybe that was her goal, since her “stylist” told her she was too fat to show them (gah).

  6. Jade says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    Millions & millions of dough & she looked like an old chintz floral couch.

    Disaster of epic proportions & of course that’s just her fake butt.

    Oh Kanye you look like a douchenozzle! You two do deserve each other. At least everyone can agree to that.

  7. Jag says:

    She looks horrible. How could Kanye not say something to her and find another dress? His friend is a horrible designer!

  8. dahlianoir says:

    She’s a vampire. That’s the only explanation. She can’t see herself in a mirror and that’s why she dresses that badly.

  9. Bellzaboo says:

    W O W. oh dear. Has her head shrunk? Still I think I like it from the neck upwards…..

  10. the odd one says:

    Lawd have mercy…I have no words…

  11. Nev says:

    She looks beautiful. There are other pics of him smiling at her. I like the floral design. I am glad you stated it wasn’t that bad because its fine.

  12. allons-y alonso says:

    That is, without a doubt, the most repulsive dress I have ever seen….And I live in a world where Marchesa exists!!!!!

  13. Shade says:

    Now I see why Anna invited her. To make an even bigger fool of herself. My faith in her legendary bitchiness is restored.

    • Lboogie says:

      LOL! I actually feel bad. She got set up big time.

      • Domestic_diva says:

        Yassssss!!!! I was like How can Anna allow her to come I was distressed thinking she went soft on me but then this dress happened and I knew. The ice queen won she was already 5 steps ahead of kimye. Hence she wore Chanel and said to hell with it ill just sit back and enjoy that train wreck that is Kim kardashian

    • Elle Kaye says:

      This is the Anna version of the movie, “Carrie.” But instead of pouring blood on her, Anna simply had Riccardo design a hideous gown that would make Kim the laughing stock of the “prom” Was no one screaming in Kim’s ear “they’re all going to laugh at you!!” before she left? Even Carrie’s mom had the decency to warn her. Then again, Kim’s mother is Satan, so there is that….

  14. T.Fanty says:

    The dress was SO bad, but the Jolie-leg was, gloved-hands-down, the worst part.

  15. Badirene says:

    So Kanyes rumoured boyfriend dressed her in this! Hahahahahahahaha I might not stop laughing ever.

  16. paola says:

    She really does look like a couch, it reminds me of Robert Downey Junior in Sherlock Holmes 2, when at the very end he disguises himself with a couch and only the head sticks out. Kanye looks miserable, glad to see that because i think is an a$$hole and they deserve each other. actually out of the 2 i feel more sorry for Kim because she really is stuck in a horrible position( which she is the only responsible for)

  17. Mia says:

    Kim wanted so bad to attend the Met Gala and that’s what she wore? I can hear Anna’s laughter in South America.

  18. Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    I don’t think this ensemble would’ve looked good on anyone. Silly Kim.

  19. tracking says:

    Maybe she panicked because of the size thing and had Kris drape and sew a tablecloth? He looks unhappy.

  20. Pia says:

    Anna Wintour alors went florals, so maybe it was Kim’s way of showing Wintour “look, I’m so just like you !”

  21. Oops says:

    The designer must hate her and also Kanye and all her entourage. Neither my friends nor my family would have me let go out with such a horror

  22. oh dear says:

    “It could have been way worse.”

    i have to disagree ;) this is as bad as it gets. i dont usually care for fashion but this is just – bizarre!

    this girl supposedly has a stylist and her boyfriend is supposedly fashion-conscious yet shes still wearing this curtain/sofa cover/bedlinen/table cloth THING with gloves? with matching shoes? wtf! lol

    the people around her must really dislike her.

  23. kibbles says:

    The first thing this dress reminded me of was a Thakoon dress that Michelle Obama has worn several times: http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u284/Fashion_Critic_/2008/October%202008/c2rmichellethakoon.jpg

    The flower pattern is ugly no matter who wears it, but at least Michelle Obama has the figure to pull off a dress that looks like your grandmother’s couch. Her dress is also lighter and has fewer flowers. Kim’s sleeve gloves made the dress go from just ugly to probably the ugliest dress in the history of fashion.

    I’m sure when Michelle sees what Kim Kardashian wore last night, she’ll be throwing that Thakoon dress in the garbage bin because the two dresses are so similar, aka ugly.

  24. lady mary. says:

    why was the theme “punk” ,when everybody seems hellbent on wearing florals including Anna,,,as
    for Kim,, thanku for that laugh ,u resemble an Ottoman loveseat mummy

  25. Britt says:

    This is the first time she’s been invited to the Met Gala, and this is what she goes in. Fucking dreadful. Not an ounce of taste at all.

    Whoever made this dress could not possibly genuinely call themselves a lover of fashion.

  26. Lizzie says:

    I think Kanye is crying on the inside.

  27. Apples says:

    What part of this references punk?!
    There is a theme, and this fails on every level.

  28. marie says:

    I really wish the ban would have stuck, why does everything have to be so dang tight.

  29. Jess says:

    What few people know, is that Kim is part of a covert operation for the furniture industry…seriously, it looks like she’s wearing a type of camo. (A much nastier version of a dying rose garden.)

  30. judyjudy says:

    Do the sleeve-gloves come off? What happens when she goes to the restroom? Ew.

  31. Eleonor says:

    AAAAAAHAAAAHAAAAAHAAAAAAAHAAAAHAA !!!!!!!

  32. DJ says:

    she does this on purpose.that can be the only explanation.she wants us to talk about her

  33. Jane says:

    And to think she met Anna Wintour in THAT get-up.

  34. Tania says:

    hahahahaha Anna Wintour you incredible magnificent woman you allowed this walking fashion disaster to appear on Met Gala just when you knew how horrible once again she will look!! It is the worst dress ever, please Kim, I know that fashion sense is strange thing for you, but you are a pregnant woman, be proud of yourself and wear something normal. hahaha Anna Wintour – genius!!!! Every blog here in Europe is also saying how ridiculous Kim looks.

  35. Cam S says:

    What was up with Kim and Beyoncé matching gloves with their dresses? Is this a trend?

  36. elceibeno08 says:

    That pattern is way too busy, it looks like the carpeting at the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa (only uglier, the dress that is) that I go to sometimes
    Too much pattern and the sleeves throw it over the edge. Sorry Kim, you have not taste in clothes, you do have taste but BAD one.

  37. elceibeno08 says:

    I want to see a picture of Anna Wintour with Kim Kardashian. I want to see the chemistry and body language to figure out how Anna feels about Kim.

  38. SolitaryAngel says:

    Crazy bitch thinks she looks HOT. I just can’t with her. And I STILL have yet to see her put her hand anywhere on her belly. Very very telling.

  39. M says:

    It’s an awful dress but it hides, confuses the eyes so it does it’s job. It makes her belly not look so big.

  40. Faye says:

    It wasn’t bad by Kim standards. By normal standards, she looked like an upholstered sofa from the 70′s.

    If you want to see how a pregnant woman can dress “punk couture” and still look good, check out Amare Stoudemire’s wife, Alexis. She was wearing this black feathered gown that managed to have a punk edge but still be incredibly flattering. I was very impressed by it.

  41. Lucy2 says:

    That dress is really awful but I think it’s nothing compared to the actual state of their relationship!

  42. Elly says:

    not that bad…. just a little bit bad

  43. DanaG says:

    Bet Anna Wintour is thrilled she let K trash in the door. There is no excuse for such an ugly dress. I thought she couldn’t get any worse yet she has. And how last minute could it have been she has matching shoes! The gloves are just wrong it looks like she is being eaten by a floral couch. Kanye looks unhappy as per usual he never looks happy with Kim I’m amazed he walked the carpet with her. One of the worst of the night.

  44. Dhavynia says:

    “It could have been worse”

    Yeah it could have been made out of leather

    She looks like the master suite wall paper from a bed and breakfast.

    This is below cheap and tasteless, Shamu wrapped in floral

  45. Me says:

    This is a conspiracy if there ever was one. Child, Anna and Kanye’s boyfriend got together and planned this mess out PERFECTLY. They trolled the hell outta Kim. Probably told her how beautiful the dress was and how gorgeous she was gonna look in it and how she and Anna would be twinsies since Anna was wearing a floral pattern, too. A b*tch got played. SMH…

    And LMAO.

  46. dorothy says:

    Oh my god, what a mess.

  47. Dawn says:

    The only thing that looked okay was her hair. Othewise she looked cheap and cheesy with the Jolie slit up the dress and her swollen leg sticking out. Her ass looks like shelf that cold hold drinks and it was awful. Only her true fans will lie to themselves and say she looked otherwise. Good god they make a horrible looking couple but pehaps they deserve each other. Ms. Needpants and Mister Grumpy. Yuk and Yuk.

  48. neelyo says:

    I think Wintour only agreed to let her come this time because Kim is pregnanat and big as a house. Next year, I bet she’s not invited. Cuz Wintour’s a bitch like that.

  49. QB says:

    This was Kim Carrie moment , they make her prom queen and then they throw pigs blood on her but in her case they upholster her.

    When is Kanye going to realize that Kim can’t wear Avant Garde or high fashion? He keeps trying to dress her like he did with Amber but the difference is she was tall , mysterious and you could have put her in a burlap sack and she would have rock it.When he took Amber to the Met Ball she looked stunning.

    Kim girl you don’t belong there.

  50. Robot Rosie says:

    If it had a lower neckline… And clearly just sleeves and not gloves… It wouldn’t have been as terrible.. What I don’t understand is that it takes longer to make gloves than it takes to make sleeves alone so that reasoning so does not make sense.
    Other than the dressmess, she’s still vile anyway.

  51. Flora Kitty says:

    I have no words to sum this up so I’ll use a phrase from MAD Magazine: BLEEEECH!!!!!!!

  52. Dawn says:

    Oh and I still say that kid is coming end of May or in early June. Kid will be born by June 15th at the latest. These two will come up with a silly inane lie and their adoring public will eat it up. PMK said July just to hop on other’s news like the Dutches. Ewwww that poor kid.

  53. HH says:

    To be fair there is a cute pic of them smiling at each other and her hair and makeup look great. I wish I could say the same about the dress. It definitely had to he a last minute choice and/or alteration because the dress has grommet detailing that would have looked beautiful with the punk theme. Floral + grommet would be a nice girly meets punk look. All of that extra fabric completely ruins the look. Too much effing fabric. She completely wrecked this look. I never expect anyone to look like they’re attending the Oscars and if they do they’re missing the point of the Met Gala. The idea behind Kim’s look isn’t weird, it was just awfully executed.

  54. Miranda says:

    Her stylist told her not to show off her arms, and this is her response? Does she think sleeve-gloves are like Spanx for arms?

    Her hair looks nice, though I think it usually does. I mean, I’m sure most of it’s fake, but it looks like it’s of a better quality than what a lot of other celebs use (*cough* Britney).

  55. Seagulls says:

    This dress reminds me of that X-Files episode where those prehistoric people blended into the trees so well all you could see, sometimes, was their red eyes.

  56. AnnieC says:

    Hahaha! OMG! That’s hilarious!!!

  57. Baby Kimye says:

    Beysus her security definitely failed…Whaahahaha…Yétrashian strikes again.it was Ye who told her to wear the gloves.I think he saw Beysus and thought, TREND!OMFG.

  58. Beatrice says:

    I have been disgusted by her awful, too-tight fashion choices, but this is the first time I’ve been outright embarrassed for her. This is the premier fashion event of the year and she shows up in a hideous dress made out of ugly couch fabric and made it worse by piling on matching shoes and gloves. Did Kanye and Riccardo really tell her she looked fabulous without laughing? Kim would have been better off if Anna had banned her this year, too.

  59. Deb says:

    I see Ye brought his happy face for the occasion. Bet Kim isn’t invited back next year, what a floral nightmare.

  60. Sally says:

    I think this COULD have been a great look! The dress style and print are lovely, as are her hair and makeup.

    However:

    1. Sleevegloves
    2. Matchy shoes
    3. Heavily pregnant

    …combine to create the ‘Sofa That Ate Kim’ effect.

    Anna surely knew that if she gave Kimmy enough rope to hang herself, that fashion suicide would be inevitable.

    Well played, Wintour, well played.

  61. The Original G says:

    Any off the rack maxi from TJ Max would have been better.

    The print, the gloves, the shoes, the slit to show off her swollen feet and no neck. I cannot get with them.

    Anyone who says this look is good has got to do that for business/PR reasons. We’ve got eyes.

  62. Quinn Parker says:

    Sad when your pregnant,swollen leg with puffy knee and ZERO remaining definition is put out there on display as if sexy….F A I L.

  63. Rinny says:

    Uggghhh. You are all making me feel bad for Kim. Stop it! LOL!

    I don’t HATE the dress… I don’t like it… but it’s so true that it could have been much worse. I do HATE the sleeve gloves, WTF is that!?

    And Kanye looks miserable. People can say all they want that he always scowls when there are cameras but look at pics from Kanye/Amber Rose era. He smiled plenty.

  64. truthful says:

    Last night folks kept asking “where are her hands?” on sites that posted pics.

    horrid, the pattern sucks, as much as she wears black, last night should have been one of those times, LOL.

    there was no “vampiness” allowed last night, she is zipped up and stapled in that sucka, giving us Jolie leg, LOL!

    no, just NO!!

  65. HK9 says:

    Oh Lord Jesus It’s a fire!

  66. dcypher1 says:

    It looks like her hands disapeared. She does look very optical illusion. When I saw these pics I wonder what happened to her hands.

  67. The Original Mia says:

    I knew this was going to be an epic disaster. Thanks for not disappointing me, Kim!

    I had a couch like that in college. 2 decades ago. How is this punk in any way or form?

  68. Rosie says:

    The dress is horrible on her. They are not a very attractive couple truth be told.

  69. Ag says:

    An 80s couch indeed. And she looks like she has no arms in the pictures where her arms are close to her body. It will blends in! Tragic.

  70. janie says:

    She really has a stylus? Does this person hate Kim? As silly as she looks, i saw worse. Kim is so beautiful, this is tragic.

  71. Viv says:

    I love that she can recycle this dress in November and go as the Chelsea Garden Show for Halloween.

  72. BlackMamba says:

    I don’t hate the dress. I just think the slit looks bad because her legs and feet are so swollen, she should have left that leg hidden. The long sleeves are ok as well minus the gloved hands. And her make up and hair look beautiful.

    P.S.: I googled images of Kanye and that Ricardo dude because everyone kept calling them lovers and…they spend A LOT of time together…

  73. Shelly says:

    Kanye’s “mad” because she “ruined a beautiful piece of art”…Kanye can suck it. Maybe he should let her dress herself again, because since she’s hooked up with him she has only had one fashion atrocity after another. Kim’s style was always body conscious and sexy and it worked for her back then – why he keeps stuffing her into supposed “high-fashion” trash is beyond me. The looks do not work on her. At all. Never thought I’d miss Kim in any way, but I actually miss the old Kim.

  74. MisJes says:

    Well, now it makes sense why Anna W invited her – to save money on the entertainment. Good thinking.

  75. Diva says:

    Her dress was bad but she shouldn’t feel too horrible because a lot of the dresses were bad too. Beyonce, Gwyneth, Jessica Biel….she fit right in!

  76. bostonian says:

    I think its interesting, the optical illusion gloves especially were a risk, but were quite visually engaging. I think she made a significant effort into planning and executing this look. She’s pregnant, and probably had input from Kanye, Anna and many others. I’m sure she felt insecure last night. I have empathy for her.

  77. Kristine says:

    The dress definitely isnt the worst of the night.. But man, those gloves are screwing with my eyes.

  78. Viv says:

    OMG, I just realized – both Kim and Anna are wearing floral. Did Ricardo tip off Kimye?

    Kanye: “Babe, it’ll be epic. Anna will wear flowers, you will wear flowers. All the peasants can go Punk.”
    Kim: “Oh my God, you are so genius. Anna will totally recognize that we are fashion equals! BFFs! Bible!”

    I bet Anna had some heads rolling this morning.
    She would totally make my day if she would make a comment that Kim will never be invited again because she wore florals instead of Punk. How epic would that be?

  79. dorothy says:

    Would love to know what Anna thought of Kim’s dress. Probably that her first instinct was right, don’t invite the trailer trash. Old saying: you can’t make a silk purse out of sow’s ear.

  80. Thiajoka says:

    I made so much fun of her last night on Twitter that I’m flat worn out from it. Today I kind of feel sorry for her for trying so hard. Looks like she kind of copied Anna Wintour, perhaps trying to brown-nose a bit. Oh, I see ya’ll mentioned this upthread. Ha! Love the little skit about it from Viv.

  81. Palermo says:

    It’s clear to me, this was Riccardo Tisci’s way of getting back at Kanye’s baby mama. Ugliest outfit I have ever seen.

  82. Marion says:

    Despite the fact that this dress is hooorrrrriiiiiidddd, I do think that Kanye would never have let her go to the MET gala as his +1 wearing something he wouldn’t approve of…

    So the dress is awfully awful, yes, but I don’t think that it’s kim’s all fault (and I tend to think that when they went to dine with The Devil, the gown must have been mentionned somewhere in the conversation…)

  83. Yelly says:

    Looks like she’s missing a part of her arm.

  84. bangarang says:

    How did she go to the toilet with those glove sleeve things

  85. PinkG says:

    Are there any pictures of Kanye touching her baby belly? Acting like a proud Daddy?

    • Dredz says:

      No, I could find none. In fact he looked disgusted when he was caught looking at her belly. There was a picture of them on the stairs and Kim had to grab his shoulder because he didn’t help her at all. Now, compare them to Amar’e Stoudemire and his fiancee Alexis. He really looked like a beaming daddy-to-be, constantly smiling and putting his hand protectively on her belly. Body language does speak volume.

  86. FLORC says:

    Everyone sure does love to hate on Kim. It’s ok. She’s laughing all the way to the bank because you guys can’t get enough.

    Kim is the most punk thing here. She went to the gala looking exactly how she wanted to despite everyone’s b!tchy opinions. I think she’s giving her critics a big FU when she wears skin tight clothes. As far as this gala goes, she’s wearing nothing different from how she usually dresses lately and THAT is PUNK. Good for her!

    And go ahead. Rip her to shreds. Once you stop caring enough to hate Kim she won’t be on tab and mag covers. She’ll disappear. Until you stop caring enough about her to not comment or make fun of her on these threads she will get paid to be on those covers and her show will be renewed. You are the reason she’s rich.

    • JT says:

      @FLORC – thanks for that Kim K fawner!

      • FLORC says:

        JT I don’t fawn over her. You can’t criticize what I say so you assume I’m a fan. I am no fan of KimK. I am assuming this, of course. Your comment did not seem to emote support at all, but rather a passive aggressive remark.
        I admire her work ethic. She works more than most. I think its pretty rich that people are quick to be angry at her for how she dresses or that she exists since she only exist in pop culture because be it negative or positive, people want to express feeling about her

        I either get attacked (personally) or ignored outright when posting to these threads. I won’t judge her by her appearance, but rather her ability to hold her own. This site is for a b!tchy state of mind, but those who defend victims of bullying and attack KK for nearly anything is so hypocritical it’s silly. But I guess some women need to hate to make themselves feel happy. Sad really.

    • Dawn says:

      What work ethic does Kim have? Strolling around LA, Miami, London, NY or someplace else? Flying off to attend a party that she is paid to attend? Her show, her scripted show where she lives a life of luxury while arguing with her family or making judgmental statements? I admire many people’s work ethic too…but she is not one of them. I admire those who give back and NOT take and all the KrapTrashians do is take. She became famous NOT because of her ETHICS but because of her lack thereof. Admire her marketing skills if you must, the willingness to change her face and body to get what she wants is continuous and ongoing but don’t get down on others for seeing through them. Admire teachers and law enforcement and nurses and doctors and health attendants working in senior homes, the people who work for less in a year then what this chica makes in a couple of hours for strolling. Kim is shameful because of who and what she did to reach this level of fame. Nothing more. She is a ho and proud of it and so apparently is her rapper. But you are correct to say we can’t get rid of her until we stop caring about them and those days are coming.

    • Nina W says:

      There was nothing punk about the outfit, there is nothing punk about Kim. Wearing skin tight clothes is her signature, that’s why she does it. It’s nice you like to believe her PR about how hard she works at being materialistic and shallow but most people find her annoying because she is.

  87. Jade says:

    The dress itself is fine but you risk going full retard with matchy gloves and shoes. She’d better not drop her utensils or contact lens, someone might actually sit on her if she were on all fours.

  88. Jayna says:

    It reminds me of a bedspread my mom had. It reminds me of drapes. It reminds me of material used in the ’80s for sewing to a McCall’s pattern. LOL My mother had all kinds of stuff like that in her sewing room I used to go in and play with old fabric. It doesn’t remind me of couture.

    But I am glad she didn’t go punk. She’s too far along and round to want to look too out there. She tried. I loved her hair and makeup, at least.

    He is the most dour guy in the world. Is he ever happy at all? This should be an exciting time in his life. He finally got the girl he wanted and he is having his first child. What is wrong with him?

    There is only 1 explanation for this: Anna Wintour told Kanye that the only way his girlfriend could attend is if she was able to pick out her dress. Famewhore Kim didn’t even care what she wore as long as she got to go. Also, this is not even remotely punk.

  90. j.eyre says:

    I feel like this is a scene from the Pink Panther waiting to happen. All she needs is a wall with the same pattern wall paper and a lamp shade to cover her face and when Kanye walks by, Kim will scream “HHHHHHHIIIIIIYYYYYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAA” and roll him, to which he will jump up and yell “Not now Kim, you fool!”

  91. K-rock says:

    I can barely make out the gloves. Her dress, gloves and shoes are a big blur to me.

  92. Nicolette says:

    The high slit is sooooo trashy for an expectant mother. But why would we expect anything else?

  93. Viggo says:

    I think the people around Kim(Kanye included) are playing a cruel joke on her.
    Her pre-Kanye style was so much more adequate than what she’s been wearing lately. I think she tries so hard to please others and come off edgy that it has completely backfired, making her look like a buffoon. Even Kanye with all his extravagant costumery on stage didn’t stay on theme, he kept it pretty classic, so why would he sit by and let Kim make such a fool of herself? I don’t buy this, “she’s pregnant and can’t wear this or that.” During Hallie Berry’s first and now, current pregnancy she’s always looked good. No one should be shamed into making horrible sartorial choices just because they are pregnant…that’s very disgraceful on the part of the stylist or whomever is advising Kim.

  94. Luxe says:

    May someone please explain the guest list of this event to me? Minka Kelly for starters????? And sooooo many fashion fails!

  95. Dimebox says:

    Since the designer is also rumored to be Kanye’s lover, I think this is the definition of a stab in the back. After all, he had the hideous thing trimmed in what look like upholstery tacks. (check the hem) My couch weeps in sympathy.

  96. Pam says:

    this takes “matchy-matchy” to a whole new level.

  97. jaye says:

    Oh.Em.Gee. I am now even more convinced that her stylist despises her.

  98. Sabrine says:

    I never thought florals would make a comeback like they have but they’re in again, big time. Kim’s dress is gorgeous. The only thing I don’t like are those sleeve gloves she’s wearing.

  99. Emily says:

    A long, sweeping floral dress is not punk. It could be the most beautiful dress in the world and I would have precisely the same reaction.

    Have we just… lost the plot entirely? I mean, as a society, rock stars at a Met Gala pretending punk could be couture, and just as in my childhood, Madonna’s got all the attention. The next time someone tries to pretend Hollywood or the fashion industry are “liberal” or “progressive”, I’m pointing them at this nonsense. They’re so frightened and reactionary, they can’t even begin to grapple with the idea of punk, and IT STARTED OVER THIRTY YEARS AGO.

  100. Mabs says:

    Someone needs to tell her onesies are for babies. One of the most awful things I’ve ever seen on the red carpet. Bjorg got at least a chuckle…I think Kim was serious.

  102. dorothy says:

    The thing about Kim Kardashian attending the Met Gala is it cheapens the event. Much like Lindsay Lohan attending the White House Correspondence dinner. Once you let the flies in, there’s no going back.

  103. nina says:

    Actually no, it could not have been worse.

  104. KellyinSeattle says:

    I was thinking back about the Carol Burnett skit :) I remember she said, “I saw it in the window (the drapes), and I just had to have it….good memory, thanks!

  105. pk says:

    She may be dressing bad during her pregnancy so people will keep writing/talking about her but there is no way she deliberately made herself the laughing stock of the Met Gala. The dress was ridiculous!

  106. Anoni Mus says:

    It could’ve been worse???? For the love of God, how?

  107. the odd one says:

    I mean..what is that????

  108. the odd one says:

    Dont blame the stylist. I personally think that Kim is making these choices on her own throughout her pregnancy. I think she had questionable taste before she got pregnant and its even worse now. Obviously she has the final say so on what she wears. stylists can only make suggestions by pulling clothes for their client. client makes the last call..and thats what we see over and over again with Kim. for the love of God. please.. someone talk sense into this woman. she looks ridiculous…again.

  109. Rachel says:

    I feel sorry for her. No amount of money can buy respect or class. She will always be known as a joke. At least Lindsay Lohan is thought to have had some talent at one point. Not this one…

  110. MediaMaven says:

    KK: ‘Ye, do these gloves make my ass look big?
    KW: Girl, Ima-tell you, everythang makes your ass look big.

  111. Lindsey says:

    If this had been a sleeveless tank dress with a lower slit, no gloves and totally different shoes and an updo, a loose bun (NOT her Croydon high buns) it would have been eons better.

  112. LaurieH says:

    Okay, nevermind the fact that it looks like her dress was made from so many murdered K-Mart outdoor cushions, but what’s with the matchy-matchy shoes?

  113. fallen says:

    Well at least she’s holding her belly, people were saying that she never touches it.

  114. TanishaLove says:

    I wish her dress (stupid attached gloves included) was made of crimson velvet so that she’d at least blend with the carpet and we wouldn’t have had to see this travesty. She was doing so well last week, what with dressing her body appropriately and somewhat comfortably–then this happened. But honestly, I feel bad for the girl. She’s looked miserable in every pic taken over the last few months. Only a few more months, KimYe! Ya’ll be alright.

  115. Kristen says:

    omg, is that nail-head trim? did the designer intend for her to look like a sofa and for everyone to know that was his plan?

  116. Lizzy1013 says:

    I am not a fan of Kim by any means, however, I just watched the E news special on the Met Gala, and the stylist ( Rachel Roy?) said that Kim was dressed from head to toe by Givenchy and since they were a co host they dressed Kim. Or something like that. She made it sound like Kim really didn’t have a choice. And Kim doesn’t look very comfortable in her outfit.

    • Dawn says:

      She is their product, they have to come up with something to take the heat off. Sorry but Kimmode looked like she thought she was the most beautiful thing in the room and was not at all uncomfortabel. More lies from the station that brings us the lies that are the KrapTrashians! Pfft.

  118. madchen says:

    I’m completely convinced that the bad clothing is deliberate. It keeps her on the front page. There are probably more photos of her post Met gala than any other attendee. Kanye has crap taste as well. I think Anna’s “friendship” with Kanye has to do with advertising and staying current enough to appear as if she’s always on trend, while not being too forward. Even Vogue has to find its subscriber base/success in the middle. Kanye is the middle and Kim keeps things low end enough to keep the clicks and reads going…just like here.

  119. Lulu.T.O. says:

    Right. She looks like a Faberge egg on a stick.

  120. Stella says:

    These pics were giving me so much life today. Smiling (or smirking? :D ) from ear to ear ALL DAYYY.

    Words cannot express my glee.

  121. Asdfg says:

    Granny couch or curtains?

  122. Marta says:

    What are You talking about, Anna Wintour was lookig like cleaning lady her self !!what was punk about her dress? Tema was Punk and the only twos who made right was Madonna and Miley Cyrus. And Kim dress was not THAT bad, problem is that Kim is always vulgar looking! She is beautiful but cheap and unfortunetly her figure is not right for our times:)

    • lisa2 says:

      ITAWY on a lot of what you said. There were only a few that actually looked the part.

      Not knocking Kim’s weight (she is pregnant).. but I wonder how that dress would look on someone that was not pregnant and thinner. I hated the matching shoes.. she is a pretty woman, and that dress was not doing her any favors. But she was not the only one that looked terrible. I think the problem is Kim likes to think of herself as a fashionista and when you do you open yourself to more scrutiny.

      I wouldn’t have even come to be honest.

  123. LipstickGirl says:

    Her dress reminds me of the wedding reception in Steel Magnolias. “Looks like two pigs fighting under a blanket”.

  124. taxi says:

    Never trust a mouth-breather to give fashion advice. I thought Kanye was allowed to bring Kim because he was part of the entertainment.

    Little did he guess she was the entertainment.

  125. madpoe says:

    oMfG!
    She got punk’d into wearing this!

  126. Janey says:

    She’s definitely no Audrey Hepburn.
    Always stunning.
