Kim Kardashian’s maternity street style: improving or still kind of terrible?


This is probably just a preview of coming attractions. I’m expecting to see Kim Kardashian tonight on the red carpet of the MTV VMAs, mostly because Kanye West is set to receive the MTV Video Vanguard Award. Why wouldn’t she be there? Of course she’ll be there. What kind of late-August coat will she wear? How many layers? Will she continue to try to make those fug chokers happen? So many questions.

Anyway, these are some assorted photos of Kim out and about on Thursday and Friday. I just didn’t get around to posting these photos because Kim also appeared on the cover of C Magazine – go here to read. She talked a lot about how her first pregnancy changed her, because she no longer wanted to smile for photographers because she felt so bullied about her weight. She did have pre-eclampsia and I do (and did) feel sorry for that. But I will never stop shaking my head at how she chooses to dress while pregnant. I really just don’t get it.

In the photos of Kim in off-white, is it wrong that I cannot figure out if that’s actually two pieces, like a tank and maternity pants, or if it’s yet another onesie? I think it is a two-piece. And while it’s not good, it’s not as bad as some stuff she’s worn, so… I’ll give it to her. It’s fine. But the coat! She must be so relieved to get inside and be able to take off her butt-covering coats.


Speaking of the butt-covering ensembles, Kim did make a rare public appearance without a coat on Thursday. Those are the photos of Kim in the black dress and the ridiculous heels (are those four-inch heels?!). She was wearing a mic pack too, so she was likely filming scenes for Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Last thing: If you really want to see what Kim’s boobs look like these days, you should totally check out her Twitter.

    Her style is not improving. Don’t think those are maternity pants – could be wrong.

    • bettyrose says:

      I feel like I just looked at someone in their winter long John’s before they got properly dressed. Still, looks way more comfy than her usual spandex getups.

      • Lama Bean says:

        Kanye has expanded his fashion line to maternity gear.

        The camel toe. The colors. The lab coat. The positioning of the pants. Even just a flowy top over the pants would help.

      • zinjojo says:

        They look like the grandma’s panties version of long john’s. Seriously, as I first scrolled down, I had a complete “WTF, no way she really wore that” moment, but of course she wore that.

        Shirt tucked into high waisted leggings that look like long john’s with a coat in August. SMH — it’s been HOT in California this past week too, although it’s cooling down a bit this week. It’s really not difficult to wear appropriate, cute outfits that are also comfortable while pregnant, but then again, look who we’re talking about.

      • booboocita says:

        That’s exactly what I thought: base layer.

    • Pandy says:

      Not improving. Still awful outfits and shoes but the @ss of doom is covered up by a trench coat. That’s an improvement – we don’t have to see the @ss lol.

      • Becks says:

        I can see why she would try to cover that enormous ass, but it’s been about 100 degrees here in LA! So effing hot and she’s wearing those ridiculous coats!

      • pamspam says:

        Came to say the same thing Becks…brutally hot here in LA. I cannot imagine running all over town in that getup. I don’t know how she’s not a sweaty mess.

    • V4Real says:

      Gosh the Camel toe is presenting well in the first two photos.

    • FuefinaWG says:

      This outfit is not only CRAP x’s a million; it’s hotter that hell in SoCal, right now. WTF????

  2. Nancy says:

    She just needs to slip on her uggs and she can make a snowman. High fashion and Kim Kardashian are words that should never be in the same sentence. Actually any flipping Kardashian and high fashion, it just doesn’t happen. Caitlyn Jenner comes closer…..

  3. Yabby says:

    DM had some really unflattering butt shots of her in the little black dress. Her butt looked like it was slipping down her tiny legs. I totally understand why she wears coats now.

    • A Fan says:

      “Her butt looked like it was slipping down her tiny legs.” What a great way to describe it.

      [*And that’s how you know it’s fake.*]

  4. Jane says:

    I still think of her maternity clothes as sausage casings.

  5. lassie says:

    It bothers me that when she does the monochromatic outfit all the pieces are slightly off shade from each other. What kollection are these maternity clothes from, Stretch Armstrong? ‘Cause they are amazingly stretchy.

  6. minx says:

    Tighter than ever.
    You don’t have to wear a coat in August if you get clothes that fit.
    The shoes are ugly.

  7. Mzizkrizten says:

    Why can’t she just wear some maternity jeans and a cute flowy top like normal pregnant women!

    • tracking says:

      She would look infinitely better for sure. She has no clue what looks good on her body type and also probably dresses in soft lighting where she can pretend she looks better than she does.

      • Jan says:

        I’m thinking soft lighting and fun-house mirrors are the norm with this family.
        Also, she has the most hideous (and laughable) taste in shoes. Those black shoes look like they belong to a dominatrix….SMH. Anything for attention.

      • Dr.Funkenstein says:

        Oh, the shoes are a crime against humanity. Nearly every time.

    • Pandy says:

      Seriously! She still thinks she’s sexy lol.

    • Nicolette says:

      The key word being ‘normal’ which she isn’t.

    • Abby says:

      This! I’m 35 weeks pregnant. The amount of cute, flowy, comfortable maternity wear out there right now is so great. WHY WEAR THIS TIGHT CRAP. WHY. It looks so bad on her.

    • Malificent says:

      Agreed, it would look so much better! Back before it went to seed, I had a figure a lot like Kim’s before she started mucking with herself — short, hourglass, very curvy, tiny waist. Even not pregnant, we still can’t pull off the long, lean, skin-tight look. She needs to get some cute maxi dresses and some funky flat sandals and just do up the flowy earth momma thing. She’d look great and feel comfortable.

  8. Lauren H. says:

    None of her clothes look good to me. There is no improvement. She needs to wear looser, more flowing clothing.

  9. JudyK says:

    Those black gladiator sandals look like they are cutting off the circulation and are ugly ugly ugly.

    • jwoolman says:

      They look terribly uncomfortable. Is she showing signs of swelling again?

    • parissucksliterally says:

      She is always wearing shoes that cut off the length of her legs. She has short legs! Why would she want to take length AWAY? She does the same thing with chokers, her neck is not long enough to pull them off.

      She dresses for the body she wishes she had, not the one she has.

      • Dr.Funkenstein says:


      • Black Sun Empire says:


        I’m barely 5′ tall and I wear goth plat shoes and boots that actually deceives the eyeballs into thinking my legs are longer than they really are.

        It also creates an illusion of height where I’m 4′ 10.5″ but can appear to be as tall as 5′ 3″ – 5′ 6″.

        It also helps that I’m skinny-fat weighing betwixt 88-97 lbs…. depending on alcoholic consumption. In other words, the height gives an illusion of long, thin legs.

        Le sigh.
        I would love to have Gisele’s or Faith Hill’s perfectly symmetrical and elongated body proportions.

  10. Dawn says:

    I see no improvement whatsoever but I am sure those who are crazy about her do.

  11. Lilacflowers says:

    She looks so uncomfortable and not just because she is pregnant. Those clothes would be uncomfortable on someone who isn’t pregnant.

  12. Jules says:

    Make it stop

  13. Daria Morgendorffer says:

    Nope, don’t like her style. I noticed recently that she’s been wearing thicker heels which gives the impression that she’s having a hard time with the stilettos she usually wears, and this is exactly why people criticize her. She’s so wrapped up in trying to be this bombshell vixen that she can’t even just chill out for a few months while she carries her child to term. She’s desperately trying to find ways to remain “sexy” while expanding in size.

    I’m sorry, but it looks completely ridiculous for her to wear these bodysuits she’s been seen in and what looks like long johns in that picture up above with a pair of heels. Even if she still wore these tight dresses put paired them with sandals or flats, I believe people would be a lot less critical. She’s always all dressed up to do random, dumb shit like go to Toys R Us or pick up those salads in clear bowls that her and her sisters eat, or grab a cup of coffee. Do you really need heels for a pap stroll? It’s so silly. These are reasons people don’t take her seriously–she’s always “on” she’s never a real person and it’s just weird and lame.

    • minx says:

      + 100000

      I would say “random, dumb shit” sums up their entire lives. No purpose, just wandering around to get photographed.

    • burnsie says:

      Couldn’t have said it better myself

    • Nicolette says:

      She is always ‘on’, and it must be exhausting. I can’t even imagine living like that and I wouldn’t want to for any amount of money.

  14. Citresse says:

    Top photo: The long white coat is ok, but the rest of the outfit reminded me of the bandaged ROM Toronto mummified Egyptians show from 1985.

  15. Megan says:

    She looks best in jeans and long shirts/Blazers …why can’t she figure that out

    • Daria Morgendorffer says:

      She used to dress that way when she was still allowed to dress herself, but once Kanye made her clean out her closet and hand selected her wardrobe for her, she is apparently no longer allowed to wear anything that flatters her.

      I was never the biggest fan of Kim’s style, but I always thought she knew how to dress her body. It’s so crazy to me that Kanye convinced her that her personal style was “corny” and I don’t think Kim has looked nice more than a handful of times since he started to dress her.

      • minx says:

        He wants her cleavage and booty on display, all the time. But I don’t think he’s all that interested in her cleavage and booty.

      • BarkingMad says:

        minx: I was going to say exactly this, but why does he want her boobs and bum on display when, like you, I don’t think he’s interested in them, either? What is with him? He’s also been MIA of late, as he was when she was pregnant with North, but will require Kim to be the dutiful wife for his VMA appearance. They’re a weird pair, but whatever works for them, I guess…

  16. jugstorecowboy says:

    I will only make fun of the shoes! Not the pants that are pulled up higher than my grandma’s! And the shoes look uncomfortable, but not hideous…so this is a win?

    • Tiffany says:

      Yep. The footwear is its own punchline. There are plenty of flats out there. Kim really needs to realize that she is not a 6 foot female who can pull that off.

  17. Annie says:

    Her shoes look to me like highheeled combat boots, particularly from the back… I always think she looks uncomfortable in the clothes she wears as they are so tight fitting. Then again, maybe its ME feeling that way when looking at her.

  18. TOPgirl says:

    She’s still doing pho opts! Girl needs to just relax and let her hair down and let her stomache hang like pregnant women do.

    • parissucksliterally says:

      ….and this is the woman who just said in an interview she “doesn’t like to go out” anymore. Guess what Kim, YOU DON’T HAVE TO! Get an assistant to do this crap for you. Stay home, and put your damn feet up!

      • katie says:

        But if she doesn’t go out then how will anyone see her? She thinks “how will the attention be only on me, Me, ME???”

    • Jessiebes says:

      She has nothing to gain with these photo ops. She just looks silly & uncomfortable.

  19. Ivy Vine says:

    Camel toe. Everything is way to tight. It can’t be comfortable at all.

  20. Tiffany27 says:

    My second hand foot pain is real. Wear sneakers Kim, Kanye has his own shoe line so utilize this.

    • The Other Katherine says:

      OMG, girl, I *know*. I am 6 months pregnant, and my quasi-orthopedic Born clogs are the closest things I will wear to “dressy” shoes. Most days it’s my hiking shoes with the arch support inserts. FREE KIM’S FEET! They’ve done nothing to deserve this abuse!

  21. Mltpsych says:

    Horrible. Gross. Lab coat fug.

  22. jwoolman says:

    But she’s dressing better and more comfortably than during her first pregnancy. So that’s progress.

    She really would look better and be more comfortable if she just forgot about pricey weird fashions and instead picked up some nice maternity clothes in her real size from JCPenney or Target. And some comfortable flat shoes, please.

    The omnipresent coats mean that she’s not comfortable with how she looks. But standard maternity clothes would look fine on her and then maybe she wouldn’t feel the need to cover up.

    • minx says:

      Yes. And she wants it both ways–she bought the huge butt but now that she’s pregnant the huge butt makes her look dumpy because she’s so short. So she tries to compensate by wearing spanx and ridiculously high heels–as if those are going to make her look willowy.
      As everyone has said over and over, she doesn’t dress for her body type. She looks uncomfortable because she is uncomfortable.

    • Abby says:

      If she wants to spend dollars for the fun of it, Pea in the Pod has cute and overpriced stuff. That is comfortable! But shoes. Girlfriend needs to lay off the painful shoes.

    • FuefinaWG says:

      I always thought A Pea in the Pod fashion was nice for pregnancy …

  23. Syko says:

    Her style was, is, and will always be terrible, because everything is always at least two sizes too small. Also, a bit of red or yellow wouldn’t hurt.

    • Chrissy says:

      Primary colours aren’t chic, don’t ya know? Kanye seems to have banned them from her wardrobe and God forbid, she think for herself.

  24. Size Does Matter says:

    I’m due in 8 weeks. I prefer tighter clothing because the loose stuff makes me feel like a whale, so I can sympathize on that front. But the tighter stuff I wear is actual stretchy maternity clothing in the right size. Kim looks bigger than me, but I’m about 8 inches taller than she is.She would look a million times better without the tucked in shirt.

  25. My Two Cents says:

    If she wore normal maternity clothes, nobody would be talking about her and she knows it. As somebody famous (don’t remember who) said, ‘measure what is said about you in inches and not in content’. Personally, I am sick of seeing her wear inappropriate clothing with her enormous boobs hanging over clothing and those ugly coats covering her butt implants that make her look as pregnant in her butt as she is in her tummy. Give it a rest woman!

  26. prissa says:

    She must read thi site because everyone was complaining about her center part and lo and behold, she’s now got a side part.

    • lucy says:

      Yep, now she’s parting the ugly flat wig on the side. I’d love to see a photo of what’s left of her real hair without the wig. Her real hair used to have body and volume. This pasted down scalp cover looks so unflattering and repressed.

      I love that her eyebrows appear attached to the ugly enormous (and ill-fitting) eye shades. She really can’t get anything sartorially right, can she?

  27. HatetheletterKf says:

    How many different ways can one say “no”. Just no, no, no. And holy cow, she is a cow! If she is not due until December, is she having triplets? Pregnancy does not look good on her.

  28. Nicole says:

    She looks better than she did with her first pregnancy, but still terrible. I don’t get it. There are plenty of fashionable and comfortable choices for maternity wear that would flatter Kim’s figure. Especially as this time around she really does look pregnant, not fat/bloated like last time. The coats just look ridiculous given the time of year. If she wants to hide her butt, how about just getting some dresses with full or floaty skirts so the butt is not so out there like it is with all her other form fitting stuff? I will never understand her concept of “style”.

  29. Lbliss says:

    I like the black dress and new black shoes!!! Looks good!!

  30. jinglebellsmell says:

    I can’t take the camel toe!! Even if you’re pregnant, it’s not ok!!

  31. alicegrey12 says:

    oh my grits that outfit is uggy ugh ugh

  32. DeadlyKitten says:

    Her arse is truly grotesque.

  33. Ana says:

    Pleeeease, button that coat up!!!

  34. bobafelty says:

    Typically, if you wear the tighter layer (for comfort or support) you cover it was a loose layer, pregnant or not. If she wore those stretchy pants in the pic, but had a lightweight top over it to hang down past her camel toe, she would look better. And she would probably be more comfortable and cooler in the hot weather. Why would she want to show off her camel toe in various shades of off-white? So weird.

  35. sassy says:

    those are the ugliest sun shades i have ever seen…i feel bad for the poor company who make them being associated with her wearing their brand cannot be good for business

  36. Tilly says:

    The beige … um … outfit (?) she’s wearing in the top photo reminds me of my Spanx … that colour is not flattering on anyone and should be strictly worn as undergarments in my humble opinion.

    Her shoes are terrible with her legs full stop (pregnant or not pregnant) – and actually, they would only be flattering on about 0.005% of women … they just cut her leg off in the wrong place and make her look like she has cankles (which I don’t think she has).

    I don’t understand why she has stopped smiling because people called her fat during her first pregnancy? What the heck has that got to do with it???

    The black dress is a sensible and comfortable-looking option.

    I agree she would’ve looked 10000% better had she worn a flowing top over the tight pants … she would look amazing in a floaty bohemian-style top with under-the-bust elastic fitted and in a paisley print.

  37. Jessiebes says:

    Is it true that because her bottom is mostly due to fat injections, her pregnancy makes it even bigger and/ or with lumpy bits? Because if that is the case, I understand she wants to cover it up.

  38. Jaded says:

    She still looks like a bag of fat hamsters.

  39. Black Sun Empire says:


    Can someone hyperlink photostocks of her nappy bum? I need a good and hearty chuckle in this time of distress.

  40. yep says:

    Im really sad for her. Because she cant dress herself, wears uncomfortable shoes, (shoes btw that are more appropriate on a long legged lean machine) she will never smile again. Never mind she brought it on herself.
    I think her wardrobe people hate her. It shows.

  41. Caz says:

    She looks terrible in everything. No style at all.

  42. Amanda G says:

    Does she really have no one in her life that can tell her, “girl, don’t wear that!”

  43. Twinkle says:

    EVERYTHING she wears is awful! She has an awful, warped body that no item clothing is flattering. She has body dismorphic disorder. She thinks she looks good but she just looks like she’s got tumors growing. Her taste is tacky. Her visual presentation is a crime against the eyeballs.
