Kim Kardashian attends Valentino show in Paris: surprisingly pretty or still tacky?


I saw some photos of Kim Kardashian out and about in Paris yesterday but I just ignored them because A) the pics were boring and B) Kim’s outfit wasn’t notable. I didn’t put it together that Kim had flown to Paris (where’s Nori?) to attend some Paris Fashion Week events. Lesson learned. Kim is a fashionista now. She is accepted by many in the fashion establishment. That’s what marrying Kanye gave her – front row seats at the Valentino Haute Couture Fall/Winter show, seated next to Mr. Valentino Garavani himself.

First a word about Valentino – I know that’s his “signature look” and everything, but his orangeness would make even John Boehner weep. His orangeness startles even Pippa Middleton. Anyway, Valentino is now merely a civilian to fashion house he created – he is no longer a part of Valentino Inc, but he still goes to all the shows. Still, it’s quite a fashion coup that Kim got to sit with him. If you remember correctly, Valentino also opened his Paris home to Kim and Kanye and the Kardashian family ahead of the wedding.

As for Kim’s ensemble… maybe I’m numb from all of Kim’s horrible, unflattering styles, but I actually think she looks good here? I mean, she’s dead-eyed and bored-looking, her boobs look fake as hell and she’s wearing a mountain of makeup. But overall, she looks really good. That dress is super-flattering and it’s a beautiful color on her. Minor complaint: there are some droplets on that dress and I can’t figure out if it was raining or Kim drooled.

I’m also including photos of Emma Watson, Olivia Palermo, and Olivia’s new husband Johannes Huebl from the same Valentino show. Olivia looks cute. Why does Emma look so grumpy though? She’s giving me Posh Beckham vibes with her humorless expression. Maybe she didn’t like her outfit?

    so orange! i wonder whether Mr Valentino’s yatchpeople ever mistook him for a life donut, or a flotation device, and threw him at a drowning seagull?

  2. Hillshmill says:

    Why does everyone look so sweaty and sticky?

  3. Anony says:

    I don’t care for Emma Watson’s look. It seems drab to me.

  4. daisyfly says:

    She and her mother have the exact same face, and not in the Goldie Hawn/Kate Hudson kind of way, but rather the Barbie face mold kind of way. No matter how flattering the dress may be in color and style, her face ruins it because of how immobile and fake it looks.

  5. Hibitta says:

    You know I read that Kim is a sweetheart to her staff and those who work with her, and that she’s actually quite humble. That is a very positive quality in a person, one that made me soften up towards her lately.

    • Miffy says:

      I don’t consider being nice to your employees and work colleagues particularly remarkable though. It should be a given, not something you’re praised for. I know it’s not always the case but it should be.

    • Lady says:

      I like that about her as well. While no one should be praised for acting like a civilized human being, it’s still more than most people put forward on any given day. (I’m giving you the side eye Mr. I knocked your two year old over and kept walking.) The thing about Kim is that she isn’t a horrid person, she is transparent and a famewhore but she’s not a bad person. I can’t fault her for working it and maintaining a sense of respect for the people around her.

      I like her look here but the dress bunches up in the middle and it makes me want to pull it down over her hips.

    • Jules says:

      Like how she stiffed everyone in Ireland by refusing to pay for the castle she and Mr Kardashian rented? Gee, what a saint.

    • evlolru says:

      Ugh no she is rude and a nasty person, just like Kanye West. There is a story of how she treated some staff member of Ricardo or some other designer poorly, but she didn’t know who that person was and until she found out, she changed her tune. She also didn’t pay the bills from some irish hotel recently. How is that not rude? What about when she acted like a spoiled ungrateful brat when Katie Couric send her gifts for her store bought baby?

    • Dawn says:

      Really, where did you read that? I’ve always heard the opposite about her that she swears at them like she is a drunken sailor and is not at all nice. People in Minnesota who met her when she was with the Hump, said he always was apologizing for her attitude of superiority and telling her to knock it off. She is NOT all that nice. But yes I can see why she would run to Kanye who tells her such b.s. as “Kim be Marilyn, Kim be Elizabeth, Kim be the most important woman in the world” and Humphries was telling her to be a nice person.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      Really? If you watch her show she comes off as a horrible selfish bitch. I found her so repulsive I stopped watching her show and then when the coverage of her and her show became relentless, I stopped watching her network. She’s not nice or humble, good try though Kris, keep hiring those PR flacks to counter the Internet trolls.

      • homegrrrl says:

        So true, on her show she had this painful princess fit because her husband threw her in the water and not only ruined her cake up and extensions, but she lost 50K diamond earrings. Who wears allthatcrap to the beach? It was a tahitian paradise and she probably killed a gazillion ecosystems with her toxic sheite. I am deeply ashamed I watched the show, and I can -never- unhear that voice. That Voice alone. Ugh.

    • gefeylich says:

      Ah, damage control. I’ve seen 10 minutes of her benighted series, and she was yelling in an extremely dull and whiny way about how she lost a diamond earring. This is not the sort of woman I’d believe is kind and humble – in fact, the total opposite, particularly if she’s willing to come off as an entitled bitch on basic cable television.

      And she thinks sitting next to crispy critter Valentino gives her “klass” and “kredibility.” Right.

  6. Hello says:

    She looks the same as always, that’s the problem when you dress up to the nines every single day just to go shopping, your look will not look that special anymore. Plus her hair looks very basic. I see Valentino looks sexy as always with his bright red burned crispy skin.

  7. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    It’s too low cut for my taste, but it’s a pretty color on her and for once, fits her body. She looks good for her.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Yeah it would look amazing if her boobs weren’t hanging out (as always).
      Typical Kim-she has no sense of subtly when it comes to sexiness. It always has to be in-your-face pr0n-style with her.

    • zinjojo says:

      It’s a lovely color, but my first flash was “bridesmaid” although she would of course be the bridesmaid with her boobs everywhere but in her dress!

    • Petee says:

      I disagree.The color is too washed out for her coloring and the top does not fit right.It is pretty obvious she has implants.Not something to be ashamed about but she insists is she all real but we know she is not.Totally off the subject here but I would like too know how her Mom has landed all these men?Either she has a really great personality or is really good in bed.I saw her and Bruce back in the day with a informercial for some sports equipment.She wasn’t attractive then(and still is not) too me because he was just married to Linda Thompson who was Elvis ex.I never hear one bad word about her at all.PMK I hear bad stuff all the time.

  8. FLORC says:

    “Minor Complaint/droplets”
    It seems that whole paragraph was a giant complaint.

    It’s a good color, no mid drift, no excessive rolls of fat, hair is nice… She looks good here, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find things to criticize!

    And you’d look dead in the eyes too if Kris was your mother.

  9. LaurieH says:

    Kim’s dress is nice and the color really suits her, but once again she cheapens an otherwise chic and elegant outfit with her insistance on excessive cleavage. I am also curious about Valentino: has he eschewed the sun and tanning beds in favor of sticking his head in the oven and turning the knob to broil? His hands look normal, but his face is burnt orange.

  10. DanaG says:

    Humble Kim K? LOL Oh please like Kanye is so humble and shy. I think Kim looks like a zombie in a pretty dress but she still makes it look tacky with her books taking centre stage.

  11. It is what it is says:

    LOL I’m going for the drooling explanation, that’s funny

  12. Wren33 says:

    I think it looks great. The downside of big boobs is low cut things are excessively cleavagey, but when everything is covered up it can look frumpy or heavy.

  13. Lizzie K says:

    Nope. Even in his orange leather face, Valentino looks better in his suit than Kim looks in that dress. The dress is bunched and wrinkled at the waist where they had to leave enough material to cover the artificially engineered ass lower down, and the water balloons on her chest look lopsided.

    • lucy says:

      Chest exposed = tacky. And that dress doesn’t fit! Look how it’s bunched up at the waist and pulls across her lower belly. The top is too large and gives no support to those wayward mammary glands she is so eager to show us.

      Would it hurt her to have done her hair? She looks like she threw that dress on after leaving the gym.

      Nothing special at all about her or this look.

      I like Emma’s red shoes, but her outfit is not flattering.

      Olivia’s shoes are quite snazzy!

  14. Maria says:

    The top is tacky.

    Her breast job is on point but I find her need to be seen as a sex symbol desperate, tbh.

    I would probably like her more if she stopped talking about balancing motherhood with work, she clearly doesn’t spend much time with her kid, tho I find Kanye to be far worse-he’s a deadbeat when it comes to his child, I HATE that he never pushes the stroller or empty car seat while she’s always the one.

  15. Francis says:

    Kim’s face is gorgeous, but I HATE dresses that open wide and low like that on the chest. I don’t even like low open cut on Lupita who looks stunning in all her gowns and dresses.
    The dress is actually quite pretty but the top part with the wide open chest area I don’t like the fit there at all.

  16. paola says:

    Those fake boobs are a bit too much in your face for my liking. Especially for an event taking place in the day. She ruined that dress with the boobs and the shoes. Those Hermes rope shoes gave to go. She’s worn them every day and they don’t fit with the 99% of the clothes she has worn lately. Get some new shoes! I’m sure you can afford it!

  17. maum says:

    He’s not just orange, he’s mahogany! I love the way his ears and hands are normal coloured though.

    And what’s Olivia Palermo doing going blonde? It just doesn’t suit her skin tone and eyes.

  18. A Different Kate says:

    I’m interested to see if Kim appears front row at another designer’s show. Other than Galliano, which features her “husband’s” special friend, I’m not sure anyone else is going to give her the time of day. I’m also not sure what Valentino is doing cozying up to KK, but remember it was Valentino’s PR that tried to use Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s funeral as a marketing opportunity. Not exactly sophisticated and dignified. Perhaps that’s not the clientele they are going for anymore.

  19. Tiffany27 says:

    Valentino looks like the highest level of terror alert.

  20. Kiddo says:

    I guess one day without the blight of culture is something to be grateful for.

  21. lisa says:

    whatever duckbilled face surgery she requested is making her less and less cute every day. like if bebe dressed dorian grey.

  22. serena says:

    I get Emma and her grumpy expression, I hate her outfit too.

  23. Kaylah says:

    The dress bunches at the waist because it’s too tight and it cuts her in half, from the back there’s enough rolls for a buffet of a 1000 with doggy bags for everyone.
    I too am over those shoes. Why wear them everyday with every single outfit when they don’t go with any of them?

    Emma Watson outfit is ugly. I hate full length skirts/dresses with pumps. Kerry Washington is a repeat offender.

    Olivia Palermo’s husband is beautiful. His eyes are amazing. The shoes are ugly and so is her hair but they’re a beautiful couple.

  24. Josephine says:

    Love the color, but the cut makes it look like a cheap dress. She always makes her clothes look cheap. Her face looks painfully tight, and I’m still shocked that she hasn’t corrected what I suspect is an uneven breast job – the left side is always higher than the right. She just looks so darn uncomfortable and vacant all the time – she has no charisma whatsoever.

  25. Shelby says:

    His face is hideous. HER face is totally jacked….I love the colour of her dress tho ;-)

  26. Red32 says:

    I don’t know why people insist in wearing those plunging v-necklines. They look horrible on everyone except a few 6-foot tall fashion models. They look bad on Kristen Stewart types and bad on Kim K-types.

  27. B says:

    The dress would look good on her if she didn’t have a fake rack and an obviously carved-up face. Once you’ve hit the plastic surgery point of no return, you’re going to look like a monster in anything you wear.

  28. Chocolate bunny says:

    Thanks, Anna, ugh!

  29. MediaMaven says:

    He looks like a toasted Oompa Loompa.

  30. Dawn says:

    To me it seems like it doesn’t matter what she wears she always makes it look like it came off the rack from Walmart. She is so full of fillers from her lips to her enormous backside that it just makes her look like a street walker. So once again I go with a tacky street walker who looks like she has blisters on her lips.

  31. Nona says:

    Hate her all you want but she is one of the most beautiful women alive.

  32. word says:

    No side or back shot? That’s new.

    Oh and I thought she said she prioritizes her “work” now so she can spend as much time with Nori as possible. Was it necessary for her to be there? Seems like she just wanted to be pap’d. Where’s Kanye?

  33. JudyK says:

    Dress is a pretty color, but I am so sick of looking at Serpent Cat-Woman’s enormous boobs.

  34. Juliette says:

    Bear with me: I’m not a regular Kartrashian commentator, but I saw this dress and I actually really like it. My issue however, is with Kim.

    By just skim reading her headlines, I have heard numerous times that she claims her curves are genetic, and not the work of a doctor through surgeries and implants. Obviously, she considers the vast majority of plastic surgery procedures to be “non-surgical”, even when the medical community would disagree…

    Because there is just no way in heck the natural breasts of a 35 year old mother would sit like that in that dress. Either she’s invented her own bra (highly doubtful, because 1. we all know her mother would market that thing in a half-second from its patent; 2. she’s the village idiot)… OR, those puppies are the result of surgical procedures.

    I vote surgery.

  35. pnichols says:

    she looks pretty. he must eat his weight in carrots.

  36. Palermo says:

    Can Kim EVER keep her butt at home? She couldn’t stand Kendall getting attention and she wasn’t? Please, just give Nori to some loving couple, cause you two surely aren’t

  37. me says:

    Show the Balmain dress please…the one she wore last night. My God ! Why is she even at Paris Fashion Week? I though she just did that whole interview about how she hates being away from her daughter and only does “important meaningful work” ???

  38. Rghei says:

    Wow. How low as Valentino sunk by hanging around Kim? From dressing First Ladies and A list actresses he is now associated with this trash? And Funny how so many C list/Dlist ppl are at fashion shows. Natalie Portman, Scarjo, Charlize, Keria Knightly, Jennifer Lawrence are all A list faces of major brands but are almost never seen at these shows.

    • FashionYeasta says:

      The celebs that go to fashion shows are paid for their appearances. The fashion companies are getting what they pay for, so if you see a reality TV star or Camilla Belle, it means they had a low budget or paid with clothes. Rihanna costs $100,000 per appearance. A full page ad in Vogue is about $175,000, so two A-listers cost more than advertising in Vogue!

  39. Dany says:

    wow Valentino looks……ehhh it´s neither orange nor brown… it´s a whole new colour

  40. Marlene says:

    The dress is nice but she remains tacky.

  41. Shelley says:

    The dress is horrid. You can’t tell as much from the pics posted here, but on other sites you can really see how bad the fit is and how cheap it looks. The fit is terrible around her waist and hips. And she chose the stupidest shoes to wear with it. They do not go with the dress at all. I’m also sick of the stupid middle part in her hair.

    • JudyK says:

      Just Amen to all you said, especially the shoe part.

      Clunky brown sandals with a long, sheer dress…ruins the entire look (aside from the gigantic, spilling boobs already ruining it before one even gets down to the ugly hooves).

  42. swack says:

    First of all, I have not read any other comments. The dress fits horribly. It’s too tight at the waist/under the b00bs, that is why it bunches. The side of the halter on the first pic, you can tell it was not altered to fit her size. I like the color on her but once again it does not fit her correctly – and her b00bs are once again hanging out.

  43. Sassy says:

    Should it even be a question? Still tacky. Always and forever tacky. Her face is so messed,

  44. LilyT says:

    His face would startle an Oompa Loompa.

  45. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    And just when we thought Lindsay Lohan had faded into obscurity.

  46. Ship says:

    “His orangeness startles even Pippa Middleton.”

    - Best line!

  47. elle says:

    Omg, i love that dress. Its gorgeous. She actually Looks beautiful, except for her girls hanging out.
    Gimme that dress, kim! I would rock the ish out of it with some hermes sandals

  48. Hanna says:

    Makes me respect the fashion world a lot less. There are no standards. Everyone follows Anna Wintour, mindlessly. Kim’s body is not good for fashion. She should give up and wear tracksuits. Seriously, when I think of that family, I picture them all in velour tracksuits. They look like Cinderella’s stepsisters when they wear heels and makeup.

  49. The Voice says:

    I believe this is exactly what Suzanne Collins had in mind when she pictured people in The Capitol. And everyone thought she was a fiction writer!

  50. Leslilly says:

    Tacky, tacky!! And Mr. Valentino looks tacky too. :(

  51. A mascarada says:

    Love the color and would love the dress (Kim’s) if it was not for all the boobage on display.
    Big boobs here myself. Would love to wear something like that but not classy.
    Emma Watson would have been perfect if the skirt was not that long.

  52. TheCountess says:

    We get it, Kim. You have big implants.

    I can’t believe Valentino has turned into Tan Mom.

  53. MissTrial says:

    Still tacky after all these years, oh, still tacky, after all these years.

    ( Apologies to Paul Simon)

  54. Miss Meadow says:

    Her nose keeps slowly disappearing. How creepy.

  55. Ice Queen says:

    Why does she have to always show so much boobs?? We get it, you have them, you can flaunt them in a classy way? Get it? No?

    We know that.
