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!
