Kim Zolciak & daughter Brielle hit NY in leather outfits: tacky times two?

Real Housewife of Atlanta alum Kim Zolciak, 38, and her 19-year-old daughter, Brielle, brought some “Leather Tuscadero realness” to the Big Apple on Monday in coordinating leather outfits. The pair attended the premiere of the new Oxygen show about transgender models, Strut (executive produced by Whoopi Goldberg), and the Sherri Hill fashion show as part of New York Fashion Week.

Can we talk about these outfits for a minute? First off, no one should ever wear a capri length, black leather jumpsuit. Ever. And white pumps? After Labor Day? For shame, Kim. Also, don’t Brielle’s boobs look desperate to escape from that painful, bondage-inspired top? I know she’s 19, but I feel an urgent need to give her a sweater or something to cover her chest. It just seems slightly inappropriate to me. I was just watching season one of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars, where the contestants were teamed up. If Ru and company saw these two head down the runway together, I’m sure they’d be told to sashay away. These outfits are terrible.

Of course, the social media addicted mother and daughter team shared pictures and videos of their big day on Snapchat and Instagram.

before the @sherrihill fashion show yesterday! amazing show! honored to have been there.

I guess this is a case of “like mother, like daughter.” They do share the same passion for cosmetic enhancements. And when I say “cosmetic enhancements,” I just mean lip fillers, especially after Brielle recently went on a Snapchat rant against those who accused her of going under the knife.

Surgery or no surgery, those outfits are (and I can’t believe I’m saying this about Kim Zolciak) just too much. Maybe Kim’s still distraught that hubby Kroy Biermann recently got cut by the Buffalo Bills. I wonder if she’ll have to give back the 11-carat ring? I hope these two learned something about fashion from hanging around at NYFW.

Note by CB: Kim spoke to US about her husband Kroy Biermann’s future in the NFL. She said that she wanted Kroy to be happy but that her younger daughter, Ariana, did not want to move schools. “It’s my marriage and my family, and how do we balance it all? It will be interesting to see where Kroy ends up and what we do to balance it.

    So much plastic. I guess Brielle will know how she will look like when she grows up!

    • doofus says:

      and Kim’s nose is now too small for her face. people just keep whittling away and it always winds up like this.

      oh, and “38″? yeah no.

      • Kitten says:

        It just absolutely blows my mind that some people think this looks good. They don’t look sexy or exotic, they look like effin’ scary-ass clowns with those lips. I mean, serious nightmare material.

      • Little Darling says:

        I said the same on a Brandi post. I simply do not understand the incessant need to do whatever they do to their faces. Why are people enhancing their faces in such an obvious way? the lips, the cutlet cheeks, the eye lift (I’ll admit I like that one), the implants…first off it never looks good. I mean, some women touch up and it looks good, great even, but then some take
        It too far, like Courtney Cox, she was good for awhile then crossed over into too much/joker looking. Then you have women like Brandi Glanville who seriously messed her beautiful face up with cheek implants and lip whatever and the pulling so now she looks like a freak.

        Do they look in the mirror and think, HELL YEAH, this looks amazing! I mean, do they really???????

        Kim and her daughter, while looking inflated everywhere they can be, aren’t even the worst of the offenders!!

        Wow they look alike though.

      • Kitten says:

        @Little Darling-I think that Brandi does fillers (?) in her cheeks but either way, it doesn’t change your point–she does not look better!
        I’ve said it before but I think the key is to not do EVERYTHING. My friends do stuff like Voluma and Botox, etc but it never looks crazy and people NEVER guess that they’ve had anything done. I think that’s because it’s easier to believe that it’s natural and NOT due to plastic surgery when we have other flaws that we let be. But when you f*ck with every little thing on your face, you just look crazy plastic and it’s easy to tell that you had work done because well, your entire face looks different/alien.

      • Mel M says:

        Me too! My first though when I saw Kim was Muppets character.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Which is which? They look exactly the same to me.

    • Shelleycon says:

      What’s with the hooker Barbie mother daughter look? Is this a thing now?

    • tealily says:

      They look like they have one of those face-swap filters built in.

  2. lisa2 says:

    Kim looks like a completely different person. She and her daughter both look plastic. Just no emotion on their faces at all. Blank. Sad that this is what they consider sexy or beautiful. They both look cheap; in that what they are wearing looks like clothing at some cheap Vegas Show.

  3. Abigail says:

    So the daughter is the shorter one? Honestly, both look the same indeterminate, post-multiple-surgical-enhancement age.

    • Stephanie says:

      I don’t watch the Real Housewives shows, I am not familiar with Kim. I had to study the picture for a minute. Lol

  4. Green Is Good says:

    There’s no safe place to rest my eyes.

  5. Lucky says:

    I was watching an old episode of Don’t Be Tardy (I know I’m ashamed) from 2013 and the daughter was much cuter with darker hair & no plastic surgery

    • Kittahlove83 says:

      That was probably around the last time I saw Kim & Brielle live and its shocking to see what they look like now. Brielle has ruined her face…

  6. Clare says:

    Oh no. that poor child.

  7. BeBeA says:

    Umm. Nah and nope. So much wrong, so little time.

  8. Nicole says:

    Brielle was so naturally pretty and then she immediately got her limps done. Now she looks like a blow up doll

    • Minnieder says:

      I’m more concerned about her squished boobs in the black dress picture. How can a 19 year old’s boobs reach her waist already?!?

  9. Tate says:

    Sweet Jesus. Kim looks nothing like her original face.

  10. Lalu says:

    Her daughter is young… Why does she look like her mom? Why would anyone think it is a good idea for a 19 year old to look like they are 30? I cannot imagine that guys her age think this looks good… I mean, what kind of people does this attract? Damn, be young while you can. This girl had the rest of her life to look like a real housewife. I feel like she jumped the gun a bit.

    • Delta Juliet says:

      “I cannot imagine that guys her age think this looks good… I mean, what kind of people does this attract?”

      A fifty year old man with money, I’m thinking.

    • Kitten says:

      I asked the same question above. It looks AWFUL. How can they not see it?

    • Maria T. says:

      I get the feeling that Kim got surgery to look more like Brielle, not the other way around. THey have the same nose now.

  11. JudyK says:

    Why any mother would let a 19-year-old embellish, exaggerate, and destroy her fresh, natural beauty to the point she looks like she belongs in a Wax Museum is beyond me. This just makes me sad.

  12. Lorelei says:

    They both look scary and if you compare just their faces (no neck or hands) they have the exact type of LA cat face which for a 19 y.o. it’s extremely sad IMO.

    • Annie says:

      Exactly. Young women are killing that beautiful fresh look they all have and it’s excruciating to see them just have it willingly taken away, particularly for us older women who no longer have it!

  13. Jenns says:

    Hot mess x 2.

    Kim turned her daughter into some kind of sex object and now she looks 40 years old. It’s pathetic and sad.

    • GingerCrunch says:

      Exactly. It’s truly horrifying, which is my problem with this celeb trend of plastic surgery. Like Hadleyb said below, the porno look. Poor, poor girl.

  14. Frosty says:

    Brielle needs to develop her own sense of self and style and stop being mom’s mini-me.

  15. boredblond says:

    Guess it was BOGO day at their local Bondage Barn…

  16. Oatmeal says:

    I ser the daughter.went.the Kylie Jenner route

    Because if.thats the same.girl from the first.few.seasons of RHOA, she looks nothing like her dna says she should.

  17. Kate says:

    Is there any record of what Two are supposed to look like if they had natural non plastic features?

  18. RhoSue says:

    Their lips are about to explode!

  19. cleveland girl says:

    They look like science experiments gone wrong. Either that or straight out of a wax museum. Truly frightening.

  20. Laura says:

    She’s 19??? I never would have guessed. She looks 35.

  21. paolanqar says:

    So the daughter tries to be the mother and the mother wants to be the daughter?
    They look creepily surgically alike and also so so gross.

    What kind of a mother is that?????

    • Annie says:

      Not a mother I would have wanted and not one I would have wanted to be, that’s for sure.

      I know there is this certain period where, if you have had a daughter younger in life, that your daughter becomes a woman while you, yourself, may still be a relatively young woman. And it can be awkward, sometimes, for both the daughter and mother. But I never thought blurred lines, in terms of either adopting the other’s social circle was a good thing. It appears that on these reality shows that these blurred social lines happen and maybe it’s just for the sake of the show.

  22. Solcy says:

    I don’t understand celebrities. Brielle was always so pretty, how could they think this face looks better?

  23. Annie says:

    Mother and daughter blow up dolls.

  24. Cinderella says:

    If Kim keeps this craziness up, Kroy will be gone. Things are probably tense enough at home with him being unemployed.

    • Hadleyb says:

      He obviously loves the porno look…and if anything KIM will be gone when he runs out of money.

      • laur says:

        It worries me that they both look the same and the confusion this must create at home. I mean, if this Kroy guy finds Kim attractive like that, and the daughter increasingly looks like Kim, could he start to fancy her too? I know he’s not her dad but it just freaks me out so much!

    • Rays kirt says:

      Oh no. Kroy will not leave. The alarm sounds when he opens the door.

  25. Lisa says:

    The filters make them look softer, but the harsh red carpet light is not doing it for them… perhaps not everyone should walk the red carpet…

  26. Suzieque says:

    Picture of desperation.

  27. eggy weggs says:

    I don’t understand why a 19-year-old would find this kind of look/styling attractive or appealing. I mean, I was 19 a long time ago, but these clothes would have grossed me out. And the faces…I wonder what 1990s me (and the rest of us) would make of this very obvious plastic surgery.

    And in the same vein, what 19-year-old girl wants to look like her mom?

  28. serena says:

    How is anyone convinced that those lips look good?

  29. L says:

    What a role model!

  30. PoliteTeaSipper says:

    Brielle was so pretty and now she looks ridiculous and fake. So sad.

    • naomipaige says:

      Fake, fake, and more fake. Why feel sad??? She wanted to look this way? She did this to herself.

      • PoliteTeaSipper says:

        Probably because I actually have empathy for teenagers who make stupid mistakes, over 18 or not. Kim, however, gets no pass.

  31. Georgia says:

    Brielle’s original face was very pretty. Whatever is happening there now is unreal. Literally unreal, and artificial, and sad.

  32. Donna says:

    I can’t tell them apart in those Snapchat stills (not clicking play on those!) other than Brielle’s bondage chest.

  33. Nopity Nope says:

    Kim’s veneers are waaaay too much even for her OTT self. Yikes.

  34. Tiffany says:

    The dress would have been fine if ot was not lace up. Just a full dress would have been fine.

    And also Kim, you married an athlete, you go where the work is.

  35. Pix says:

    Looks like Kroy is on the down side of his career. I hope he lands somewhere for the season. If not, I really hope that they saved money. Their plastic lifestyle looks expensive.

  36. Twinkle says:

    Mother Hooker and Daughter Hooker.

  37. HK9 says:

    I know other posters have said this but Brielle was so naturally pretty and now she has the cookie cutter plastic surgery look. How is that better than being yourself?

  38. cakecakecake says:

    just looking at their faces, distracted me from the clothes, sad.

  39. herladyship says:

    I didn’t recognize either one of them, until I read the headline. They both look completely different! Like everyone else has said, the daughter was so naturally pretty!

  40. Neelyo says:

    It looks like they’re wearing ‘Sexy Witch’ costumes from Party City.

  41. naomipaige says:

    OMG! What’s up with their faces? Damn, look how much work they’ve had done. Holy Cow!

  42. jen y tonic says:

    I don’t think its the outfits that are tacky.

  43. rays kirt says:

    Ohhhh boy. I can’t find their faces past their lips. Well, the lips are not technically THEIRS. Still, she is a very pretty girl, it’s just a shame she felt she needed to alter her appearance as she was naturally just fine. Her mother set the example that you should do what you want, which is fine if you mean being yourself. But, I don’t think this girl is being herself as much as being her mother and following her course of action. Had her mother not single handedly paid for her plastic surgeon’s mortgage for a year, her daughter would probably not distort her original face.

  44. Zuzus Girl says:

    Creepy as hell.

  45. NeoCleo says:

    They look like twin blow up dolls.

  46. Flowerchild says:

    Their relationship is really sick and completely unhealthy and I worry about Kim’s other daughters seeing these two as an example.

  47. Jayna says:

    That photo just makes me sad.

  48. Cinderella says:

    Sheree needs to come “shift” Kim’s wig for letting her daughter walk around looking so foolish.

  49. Robin says:

    IF Kroy ends up with another NFL team, which is a big if, the family shouldn’t move. His career is ending if it isn’t already over, and he wouldn’t be with another team for more than a couple of years. It will be interesting to see how long the marriage lasts once the money starts running out. And both of those women look absolutely ridiculous.

  50. MellyMel says:

    I’m sorry…but how many years has Kim been 38? I used to watch the ATL housewives during the first couple seasons of the show & I could have sworn she was in her mid-30s then. 🤔

  51. Denise says:

    What am I looking at?! I just imagined doing this to myself and my daughter in a few years and my head exploded.

  52. holly hobby says:

    Don’t know them but that girl is too young to see a plastic surgeon. She looks older than 19 too.

  53. Pmnichols says:

    The poor woman had a stroke, let her have fun with her daughter.

  54. Rays kirt says:

    Thing is Mell, I sorta believe she’s around 38ish. She had her eldest daughter at 18, I think. 38, 40. Thereabouts. The problem is that she looks like an old 38. Probably the plastic; people don’t seem to realize how surgery ages a person. She’d of been better off saying she was 50 lol.
    Her husband looks like a man who is only allowed to speak on holidays or special occasions. I suspect he may have require AAA batteries.
    The both of them seem like they could officially be sold on eBay as “authentic” And plastic as they are.

  55. Marisa says:

    I used to be a fan of Kim’s, until she started f—ing with her face and passed on her creepy plastic surgery habits to her daughter. They look like tarted-up Targaryens.
    …and who told them that those lips look good? It’s like they both sucked on a vacuum extension.

  56. Marisa says:

    These pictures make me miss the old Kim Zolciak, when her wigs were pretty much the only fake thing on her body.

  57. Jwoolman says:

    I remember seeing some of the show back before Kim met her husband, when she was having a curiously open affair with a rich married guy she called Big something. Big Poppa? Can’t remember. But it was so sad to see Kim dealing with the kids. One show focused on a birthday party for the older one, which I guess was this girl. It was over the top, costing many thousands of dollars. The kid was maybe ten, at most 12 and wasn’t happy with anything it seemed. It all seemed dysfunctional to the max.

  58. Erica_V says:

    When your surgeon can only do one face…

  59. Tredd says:

    This is creepy. Why be twins?
    Do they tag team with Kim’s old man?
    And mom’s done made herself a horsey face. Blech.
