Kim Kardashian in cream Vivienne Westwood in Rome: lovely or tacky?


Here are some photos from last night’s Roman premiere of La Traviata. I shouldn’t say premiere – it was the opening night for a new version of the famous opera. Valentino invested in this version, and Sofia Coppola directs the opera. The opening was held at the Rome Opera House. And Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were there! Kim and Kanye actually know Mr. Valentino Garavani. Valentino likes them both, and Valentino has invited them to his home in Italy before. So, obviously, Kim didn’t wear Valentino. She wore Vivienne Westwood, for reasons. In some of the photos, you can see that Kim seems to be uncomfortable with how high the slit on the dress really is – that’s because she was wearing Spanx and you could see the Spanx peeking out of the slit. Besides that, it was actually a nice look on Kim. Westwood’s designs feature so many corsets and boning, so most women have to wear Spanx anyway.



More photos… Keira Knightley in Valentino (I’m pretty sure). I love her in red and she looks so beautiful. I never thought Keira and Kim would end up at the same event in Rome though.


I’m pretty sure Olivia Palermo was wearing Valentino too. I like her, but her job is just showing up places and looking pretty, right?


Monica Bellucci in Valentino. The velvet seems especially heavy for Rome in May. Monica also posed for a selfie with Kim:

    WTF is she wearing on her feet.

    • Denisemich says:

      I like the shoes. Have you noticed she is wearing chunkier heels after the 2nd baby.

      Anywho, Kim standing next to Monica Bellucci is almost hysterical. They stand for such different things regarding beauty.

      • Kitten says:

        I kind of like them too…
        People around here seem to have a strong aversion to platform heels but I think sometimes they can actually work.

    • Wiffie says:

      I didn’t catch the shoes. Meh. Don’t like. But the rest, I think she did quite well.

    • anna says:

      they are vivienne westwood and probably came with the dress. i think it’s a good fit for kim to wear westwood. she is one of the few designers making dresses for hourglass- women.

      • Wilma says:

        Yes, I always thought she would do better in Vivienne Westwood and she does. She can look so much better when she actually dresses for her figure (and takes of a couple of layers of makeup).

      • ronaldinhio says:

        I agree. I think Westwood is her spiritual home and I love the shoes
        She looks amazing here

      • tmot says:

        She actually looks beautiful. Forgetting the toupee tape is a total noob move tho.

    • JudyK says:

      Hooves. Gawd, I HATE platforms.

  2. HeyThere! says:

    Kim looks very nice.

  3. RandomGirl says:

    For once Kim looks nice.

  4. Wiffie says:

    That dress is gorgeous! I actually think she looks beautiful. In the pic of her and Monica, it makes me want her skin. Plastic be damned. It’s SO smooth. I don’t even care.

    • paolanqar says:

      She has no pores on her face. she is like a human sink.

      • Wiffie says:

        I think I’m just jealous because my cheeks remind me of the movie Holes 😭

      • Tifygodess24 says:

        She has pores but almost every photo out there of Kim has been altered to some degree. She has deals with photo agencies to touch up photos, not to mention her Instagram photos are all altered.

      • Wiffie says:

        I wonder what bronzer she had on here, I love the color.

        Look me being all about Kim. What is happening to me?!

      • Erinn says:

        Wiffie – I saw in a recent article that she uses smashbox bronzers… But I’m not sure which.

        Touch ups aside, I don’t think it’s a huge stretch to think that she has decent skin. I mean, I don’t have big noticeable pores and I’m not a celeb.

        I’m actually loving her look as well, so we’ll share the shame.

        ETA: Upon some googling, it might be the smashbox ‘bronze lights’

    • Jwoolman says:

      If you’re talking about Kim, that’s not her real skin…

    • liz_bee says:

      I wish the dress had a lining or something. It looks unfinished to me. But the construction is nice and I think Kim looks pretty great. Wish they hadn’t gone so high on the slit tho. Seems like every other red carpet a lady is flashing her beav on accident. Just lower the slit a few inches, y’all.

  5. Marigold says:

    I like Keira in red but that dress sort of makes it look like she has 3 breasts.

    I’ll begrudgingly admit Kim looks nice but that severe middle part-when will she be done with it?

  6. burnsie says:

    Honks for Monica Bellucci

    • TheOtherViv says:

      Adore how she looks as if she caught a whiff of something rotten and is too polite to mention.

  7. Pants says:

    I actually really like Kim’s dress here.

  8. snusnud says:

    Wow Monica Bellucci,what a woman! She oozes class and grace!

  9. Freddy Spaghetti says:

    For once Kim looks nice! I wish she’d wear more figure flattering outfits than the stuff she’s obviously at least two sizes too big for.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      I agree. Wearing clothes that actually fit does wonders for her. The shoes are hideous but I think she’s wearing super high heels/platforms because she’s under that age-old impression that more heighth makes for a slimmer look.

  10. HappyMom says:

    Keira pregnant again? Or just that tie on the dress? I love that color on her.

  11. Tammy says:

    This is a really good look for Kim. She looks beautiful here.

    • Kitten says:

      She looks really good but I wish she had done her hair differently. That center slicked-back part is just so severe.

  12. Capepopsie says:

    I also think Kim looks nice! At least
    she is not exploding out of the dress.
    If only the slit hadn’t been so high. . .

  13. Nev says:

    Kim looks amazing. Love the shoes too.

  14. Anners says:

    It’s a little bridal, but she looks lovely in clothes that flatter her figure.

  15. FingerBinger says:

    Except for the shoes Kim looks classy.

  16. paranormalgirl says:

    Vivienne Westwood is a good designer for Kim Kardashian. She has looked great in the last 2 Westwoods she has worn.

  17. Megan says:

    I love Monica Bellucci. I wish she would do more red carpets.

  18. atorontogal says:

    I dislike the shoes immensely and do not think she has the legs to carry off the split. As for the dress? All I’ve got is a resounding meh.

    • Cran says:

      I think the dress is lovely and if she had the slit fitted correctly she would feel comfortable. Instead it is high enough that she has to hold it so her crotch isn’t displayed. It also looks a bit windy which I’m sure doesn’t help.

      Not a fan of the shoes either. I don’t care for that wedge sole look or whatever it is called.

      • dagdag says:

        Yes, the dress is lovely, but when you have to pull and pluck a dress while wearing it, it´s ill fitting. I don´t understand it; it is not hard to tailor a dress in your right size to perfect fitting.

        A no to her shoes, otherwise, maybe there is hope?

      • swak says:

        I also think the slit isn’t sitting the way it should as it looks like the dress is a little too small around the hips and that is what is pulling the slit apart more than it should.

    • swak says:

      At least with the shoes, it doesn’t look like the heel will break. All these ultra-thin heels on her always look like they are going to give at any time. Like the dress.

      • dagdag says:

        That´s a point. I am always fascinated by her slanted heels, they seem to collapse any minute.

  19. doofus says:

    may G-D not strike me down for saying…KK does look nice. wish she’d ditch that severe hair but other than that she looks lovely.

    Ye, on the other hand…caramel brown suede boots with a skinny leg black tux? NO, just NO NO NO.

  20. Aerohead21 says:

    Besides the slit and those clunky shoes the dress looks GREAT on her. It’s refreshing to see something that compliments her skin tone and body vs exposing all of it’s flaws.

  21. Saks says:

    These Kardashians just pop up everywhere…
    I hate that when these clowns show up to an event everything becomes about them, when any given artist who was onstage is way more talented than the entire family.
    Anyway, they are lucky, Rome’s opera house is stunning and Opera is simply the top of the performing arts.

  22. HH says:

    RE: “I’m pretty sure Olivia Palermo was wearing Valentino too. I like her, but her job is just showing up places and looking pretty, right?” >>>>> Ummmm…. not the worst job ever. And when I say not the worst, I mean sign me up (complete with mouth-droolingly hot, model husband). She’s my favorite look of the whole post. I’ve always loved her style. She’s the quintessential case of having “it”.

  23. Mew says:

    Kim’s dress is much better than what she wears most of the time. It actually looks like someone else picked it for her, not herself or Jeezy. And Keira’s dress looks like she has 3 boobs.

  24. Majicou says:

    the words in the background look like it’s part of her hair

  25. Green Is Good says:

    Monica, RUN!!

  26. Layla says:

    Kim actually looks beautiful. And Kanye doesn’t look like garbage for once.

  27. Anastasia says:

    HALLELUJAH, that dress actually looks nice!

    BOO, though, to the clunky shoes!

  28. KiddVicious says:

    Wow, Kim looks good.

  29. Frosty says:

    She looks so…normal. Lovely, actually. she really benefits from the added height from the platforms. The tan is a bit too fake and bake.

  30. Lbliss says:

    Dear Kim, this is how you dress your body when you want to look amazing and blow us all away!!

  31. Jwoolman says:

    Everybody looks nice in these pics, including Kim (although the slit does look uncomfortably high up for her – could it have gone lower while still giving freedom of movement?).

    Is it my imagination, or is Kim breaking away from Kanye’s fashion hell more often these days? She can look good when she ignores him. Maybe he’s getting so crazy in private as well as in public that she figures she has to take charge more.

    • swak says:

      Or maybe if you go along with conspirators that say the end of the marriage is near, is the reason she is breaking away from Kanye’s fashion. Another reason for the divorce – he was too controlling. Just saying if you believe those saying the end of the marriage is near.

  32. Jag says:

    She looks nice. It would be prettier if it didn’t have the wrinkles due to it being so tight. And I really wish designers would stop making see-through bottoms of dresses. We don’t need to see people’s underwear!

    • Rae says:

      It’s not wrinkled because it’s too tight, your looking a scrunching of the fabric which is apart of the design.

  33. MrsK says:

    Was Kim’s dress left with an unsewn edge on purpose? The whole bottom of that dress, and all along the slit on both sides, has fraying threads.

    Also, when your dress is so tight that we can see every line of the undergarments holding all your – stuff – in place, the magic is gone.

  34. claire says:

    I like the dress. Her face is tragic, but the dress makes her look decent!
    I saw pics of her sitting down. It’s a problem when your breast implants are pushed up so much they’re touching your shoulder. Just no.

  35. I Choose Me says:

    Great dress. Kim looks really good in it. Boo to the shoes.

  36. serena says:

    A really good look for Kim, finally she chose something aside from nude /transparent outfits, yay!

  37. Tredd says:

    For ONCE, she looks good.
    She must have hidden from her master (Kanye) and gotten dressed alone (if she’s capable) *rolling my eyes*
