Kim Kardashian pap-strolled in gloriously hideous jeans: did you miss this?


Please let me have this: I’ve genuinely missed writing about Kim Kardashian’s street style. Call me vapid, call me superficial, call me a Kaiser Kardashian, I don’t care. It’s been months since Kim has pap strolled down a sidewalk in some unfortunate outfit and I have truly missed it. I’m so glad she’s back! These are photos of Kim in Bel Air on Wednesday. She was flanked by bodyguards for her outing, and I truly thought that woman was Lisa Rinna, but it’s not. It’s Carole Bayer Sager.

As for Kim’s unfortunate outfit… I’m so excited we get to talk about it! When I was a kid, professionally “holed” jeans were just starting to be a thing. Like, it was a brand new movement in denim, to buy jeans that were professionally holed and ripped. I wanted a pair so badly. And my parents bought me a pair – acid washed jeans with tiny little holes and rips all over the legs. I thought they were amazing. I think I was 11 years old? Kim’s jeans are like the more expensive version of my late ‘80s jeans. And they look gloriously awful!!!

Also: some commenters suggested that Kim’s three-month absence from pap strolls and social media meant that she was recovering from some plastic surgery, perhaps even a butt surgery, like a de-butt-ification, perhaps. I think her butt looks the same? If anything, these jeans are so unflattering, it looks like she’s gained some weight. That being said, I bet she did get some face work done.

Last thing – while Kim and Kanye West spent Christmas in LA, barely communicating with each other, the Kardashian-Wests did fly to Oklahoma City for New Year’s to visit Donda West’s gravesite. They flew by private jet and TMZ reported, “We’re told it was the first time Kanye had taken the whole family to see where Donda West is buried. They hooked up with other members of the West fam as well during the trip. Kanye’s been very present with Kim and the kids over the last weeks as he recovers from his breakdown — and we’re told this family pilgrimage was extremely important to him.” Well, that’s actually really nice.

    My eyes! MY EYES! Auuuuggggghhhh!

    • Loopy says:

      I was really hoping she would go back to dressing the way she did pre Kanye, I thought she was the most stylish while dating Reggie Bush and Humpries.

      • Hannah says:

        To think that the orange tan, the tasteless Louboutins, the Birkins and the bandage Legers would be the supreme of her fashion.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      I just can’t with that Octo Mom-ized nose & lips. And that lank hair.

      Lucite heels and moth eaten jeans. Nice. Klassy.

      • Wiffie says:

        second pic, i really thought she looked like Octomom!!

        unpopular opinion here, i can’t help but think she’s pretty, but her nose and lips are so Octomom in the picture with Old Paula Abdul.

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        “…Old Paula Abdul.”

        Just about sprayed my screen with my tea!

  2. JustME says:

    IMO, the brand Kardashian is done. No one is interested anymore, no one missed her when she didn’t leave the house after the robbery etc.

    • Mrs. Welin-Melon says:

      JustMe, I think you are right.

      I am a firm believer that if you’re old enough to remember a trend the first time around, you don’t get to wear it the second time around. That would be Kim and ripped jeans.

    • Wiffie says:

      i get it, i do, but people have literally been saying the Kardashians are on their way out for five years at least. the fallout from the Hump wedding, getting together with kanye, the coming of Kylie, the start of new season of KUWTK (for the past five seasons)…. i mean, we say that, but they don’t stop, and we don’t stop watching. even when we say we will, or do.

      it’s like every time Jen Aniston gets pregnant, the Kardashians are “over”.

      • Jag says:

        I do agree with you about them not being over, but do also want to say that I’ve never watched them. The only way I know about them is from this website.

      • Konfused says:

        So she was so traumatized by the robbery but not enough to the point she was gonna pass up an opportunity and take advantage of that down time to get some plastic surgery?…more and more this “robbery” seems questionable…is their even an ongoing investigation in Paris still ?..maybe I’m not being fair..but compared to all the other circus acts this family has put on..I just don’t put anything past them.

      • Snowflake says:

        Personally i think the whole robbery, if it happened, was an excuse to lay low, get surgery, rebrand herself. You see she’s changed her style

    • lucy2 says:

      Fingers crossed. We need to stop paying attention to people like them, who don’t do anything but court attention.

  3. Wurstbonbon says:

    Dislike the woman, love the hair. And the beautiful skin colour. Oh my. I know this sounds weird but this is the best she has looked in a long time, from my point of view. Maybe because she’s not overexposing her t&a for a change, and looks like an actual human being.

    • Jem says:

      I was going to say the same… her hair is perfection and I love her makeup here too. She looks really good.

    • Aminah says:

      Well, lucky for all of us we can all probably buy the things you like (the hair, the skin-tone) from a Kardashian beauty/hair diffusion line in the near future, just like Kim bought them herself (although at a more luxurious price point from a more luxe supplier).

      Those jeans, though…

    • Kitten says:

      It’s a decent wig but it would be more impressive if that hair actually grew out of her own head and not that of an Indian woman.

      • Chrissy says:

        Exactly. Just think, some poor Indian women sold her hair so she could feed her kids. And just when I thought Kim would use the time away as a chance to reflect on how meaningless her life is. My mistake for thinking she was a living, thinking human being.

      • Kitten says:

        Exactly, Chrissy! I don’t understand why people so persistently ignore the ethical issues presented by hair extensions/wigs.

      • AnnaKist says:

        I read a comment on DM pointing out the same thing, Kitten and Chrissy. Kitten, I think the ethical issues are partly why so many people dislike these women so much – the wigs, the furs, crocodile bags etc.

        As for the “jeans”, gosh, my cleaning rags don’t even have holes in them, and paired with those ridiculous shoes…no. I remember seeing KK a couple of times (on here, I think) in leggings or tight jeans, with a long top and appropriate shoes. Another time she had on a flowy, summery maxi-dress with cute sandals – she looked really lovely in those outfits, and should aim for those looks more often.

      • mayamae says:

        In Good Hair, there was a segment that covered this issue. A good deal of Indian hair is obtained from girls. The church requires some religious procedure that requires cutting off their long gorgeous hair. The church then turns around and sells the hair for profit.

      • racer says:

        The hair is sold. These women are not being scalped while they sleep. Women with health issues wear wigs, women who are growing their natural hair use wigs as a protective style. There is a purpose to this that can be deeper than vanity and not as simple as growing your own hair.

    • Embee says:

      I honestly love her hair. Of course it’s not actually her real hair though

      • AnnaKist says:

        It’s obviously a good-quality wig, but it just doesn’t suit her, for the reasons already given below. My daughter has natural hair this length, but usually wears a bun for work. When she does wear it out loose, she has to suffer people – sometimes complete strangers – tugging on it, believing it’s a wig. KK looks great with shorter, loose, less severe hair styles.

    • Snowflake says:

      Really? I can’t stand that wig. I guess it’s just me. But now that she’s not doing all the fillers, her face is longer looking and the wig drags it down, IMO. I liked her with shorter hair.

      • Deedee says:


      • Matomeda says:

        +1 I think she has a long face and the longhair is really unflattering too. I liked the short too! :) I still think he reduced the butt. The pants make her big all around- or maybe her Indra pics are photoshopped :)

      • minx says:

        Same. The black center parted straight hair is too severe and Octomom-ish.

    • cindyp says:

      Are you kidding? The hair is a wig, those fish lips are ridiculous, the nose is starting to look like Michael Jackson’s. She is a grotesque.

    • Mare says:

      She wears hair extensions and her skin color is made possible by a spray-on tan.

  4. alexc says:

    Mauled by Ferret brand?

  5. Patricia says:

    It just looks so uncomfortable. I feel like all those little strings would be tickling me, and I would get stuck on doorknobs with all those holes.
    Non functional pants to the max.

    • jwoolman says:

      I can’t figure out how they wash such jeans. They look to be at the point where if you put them into a washer, they don’t come back out.

  6. Runcmc says:

    Yeah she looks slightly bigger to me (not surgically, weight-wise). Doesn’t look like she got her butt “taken in” at all!

    • MostlyMegan says:

      Looks like she got another nose job – this new nose is more like Victoria Beckham – check out the new nostril ‘flare’ – that was never there before.

      • Saras says:

        Uggg that surgical nose flare. I call it the “clover/ shamrock nose”. The true signal of a rhinoplasty!

  7. Tiffany27 says:

    I’m glad she’s feeling well enough to get back to her old routines………….. I did not miss her though. Life was actually really ok without her. Poor Kylie must be shook and calling the family doctor for an a** re-up right now.

  8. Rachel says:

    If the pants are that ripped, what’s the point?

  9. Lo says:

    I’ve been out of the loop but I saw a picture of her as princess jasmine and her butt was way smaller.

  10. Rocio says:

    She has all the money in the world but not fashion sense. I guess there are things money cannot buy and style is one of them.

  11. Megan says:

    Did I miss something? Since when does Carole Bayer hang with the Ks?

    • Christin says:

      Puzzling. Does CBS have something to promote?

    • Sumodo1 says:

      Is Carole Bayer Sager writing Kardashian/West musical? This looks like some research to me.

    • Selena Castle says:

      I know right? I had to look it up and found out she is painting now and they attended her art opening. She has been photographed with her at other events too. Maybe Kan’tye is getting some “help” from an award winning lyricist?

  12. RussianBlueCat says:

    How much did those jeans cost?

  13. Ayra. says:

    I don’t miss it, they can all go into hiding this year and I’d throw those KardashiansAreOver parties that twitter always has.

  14. Ayra. says:

    I don’t miss it, they can all go into hiding this year and I’d throw those KardashiansAreOver parties that twitter always has.

  15. swak says:

    Was hard to tell in those jeans whether her butt is smaller or not. The hair reminds me of Cher. It is not good and the ends are horrible.

  16. paolanqar says:

    I did not miss her and I wish she had took all her family with her.

    Ray J is now on Celebrity Big Brother in the Uk.
    How he introduced himself to his house mates??
    ‘you probably know me for my cock’.

    Pure class.

  17. lassie says:

    Cher is looking good.

  18. A says:

    She looks like she’s doing okay. Also my mom still really REALLY hates ripped jeans so I’m going to show her this pic for sure. :P

    • Christin says:

      My dad never understood purposely ripped jeans, either. They reminded him of growing up poor and having to wear mended jeans.

  19. Beckysuz says: she wearing clear lucite stripper heels with that hot mess of an outfit??? Why??

  20. Anastasia says:

    I didn’t miss her. These jeans make it look like she got in a scissor fight with someone and lost.

    The hair/wig/extensions are ridiculous. And I’d like her to raise the zipper on that jacket about two inches or so.

    But whatever. I agree with the person who said Cher is looking good. She really is morphing into her.

  21. Pyritedigger says:

    She’s only in her mid 30s right? She looks so old from all that plastic surgery. If there was ever a PSA to not get comprehensive plastic surgery while you’re young, it is Kim and the rest of her Klan.

  22. Matador says:

    Oh honey, just go pantsless. We know you want to.

    • Pandy says:

      Right? Where’s the bra and undies covered by a belted lingerie robe that she usually strolls around in? She kept the lucite heels though. I bet she was debutted during her “soul searching” phase. Still waiting for the divorce announcement. We know it’s coming despite the gravesite visit and happy family video. And I’m saving all my popcorn for it.

  23. als says:

    She does not look like herself. And no, I am not talking surgery.
    Her vapid expression is missing from her face. She looks weary and tired in spite of the make up.

  24. Tallia says:

    It’s like a train wreck…and that woman DOES look like Rinna with a horrible wig.

  25. Nancy says:

    Didn’t miss her. Giver Cher back her 70′s wig.

  26. Nitsirk says:

    I think its really interesting to see how this all rolled out. Of course Kim was always grateful for the paps, as they really helped her in her career. But to the public it was always “Oh no! My privacy!” So to see how she was absolutely able to vanish for months should be a wake up call to all these people that believe that pictures like these always are not arranged. She’s not the only one who does that, but she’s the one that had to rely on pictures of her walking around Hollywood being published to keep her career going. Unlike Angelina Jolie. The paps just found her in the middle of nowhere…

    • Anon33 says:

      THIS. I’ve been a fan for years and have always “gotten the joke” so to speak, (ie, I knew they pushed narratives and didn’t care bc I found it amusing, no I have never believed anything they’ve said, don’t worry, I get that they’re liars and it was only my guilty pleasure show) but this shit that they’re doing now…plus Kanye doing that Trump stunt? It’s too far for me.
      Nope. Can’t. Done.

  27. Happy21 says:

    Those jeans are tragic but maybe would be better paired with something other than pointy toed stilettos? I have never, EVER been a fan of the mix of the extremely casual (the hoodie, the jeans) with something dressy. Like when I see women wearing lululemon pants as dress pants, I just want to scream. Or a hoodie or a fleece with a nice lower outfit? I know sometimes people just throw on a hoodie with whatever they are wearing as a sweater or jacket but I wish it wasn’t a thing. Get a nice coat, get a nice sweater, no need to wear a hoodie with your nice skirt and heels…

  28. Angel says:

    Maybe on a taller chick, those jeans might get a pass….

    • Chrissy says:

      Speaking as a tall girl, I wouldn’t be caught dead in them. Also, she’s in her mid-thirties, it’s sad that she feels the need to wear these teenage trends IMO. They honestly look like something Kylie would wear. As she ages, everything she wears seems ultra tacky and try hard. Ugh.

      • minx says:

        I’m tall, too, and so is my teenaged daughter. She can wear anything, and SHE wouldn’t be caught dead in that tacky crap.

  29. BooBooLaRue says:

    Wow just wow. I feel bad for saying that my recent holiday weight gain and purchase of new sweats makes me feel not so bad after all. She is amazing. So darn tacky.

  30. weirdnessabides says:

    STILL letting Kanye’s team dress her?! Wow. terrible. absolutely terrible.

  31. Sarah says:

    She looks pregnant.

  32. aerohead21 says:

    Idk, I like her hair and makeup. It’s simplified and makes her look more human and less sex doll. I don’t like the clothes and I don’t understand the heels with the ripped up (awful) jeans.

  33. I think says:

    I think that her face is looking more and more like Victoria Beckham – particularly in the profile pics. Too bad that she’d never be able to wear VB’s fashions, though.

  34. AG-UK says:

    Good lord I am sure those jeans cost a fortune I need to quit my job and start a new business. Between the swept to the side hair and holes don’t know.

  35. Libra girl says:

    The first sentence you wrote, lmao!! I spit out my coffee!! You are hilarious.

  36. puravidacostarica says:

    Maybe Kim is low on funds and had some butt sucked out and injected into Kylie’s ass.

  37. JRenee says:

    I think Kanye needs to deal with his mother’s death. Maybe this is a step in his healing. That’s all I have. .

  38. FuefinaWG says:

    I’m kind of digging this outfit. Yep; I said it. The shoes are horrid … and I wouldn’t wear this outfit on the street … but, yeah, I’m kinda digging it … and I’ve never said that about a KK outfit.

    • racer says:

      I like the outfit as well minus the shoes. Personally I wouldn’t wear it because it would draw too much attention.

  39. Debutante says:

    Wow. Forget the horrible outfit and orange skin…..looks like somebody has been sitting around for three months trauma eating !!

  40. Aubrey says:

    I would at least zip the hoodie all the way up, it is “outerwear” after all and yes I am digging it too!

  41. Rinny says:

    Actually, in other photos she is looking down right skinny. This outfit sucks. I think she had her butt re-done to be smaller, and judging by these photos – also a nose job she didnt need.

    Kardashians are going nowhere yet.

  42. Tyler Durden says:

    Kim K. & Kanye:

  43. Lifethelifeaquatic says:

    One nice thing? I like the lighter hand with the makeup. Contouring is over (hopefully) for 2017?

  44. Grant says:

    Something nice: I like her long Cher/Princess Jasmine hair.
