Kim Kardashian in vintage Gucci at the LACMA Art + Film gala: witchy ’90s realness?

Stars pose at the 2018 LACMA Art + Film Gala

Here are some photos from Saturday night’s LACMA Art + Film Gala, which is usually one of the bigger A-list events of the LA social calendar. This year’s fall event honored the filmography of Guillermo del Toro and the work of photographer Catherine Opie. The event was sponsored by Gucci, and like always, most of the women wore Gucci. I always wonder why Gucci wants to completely burn their entire collection in one fell swoop on one event – I mean, no celebrity is going to want to wear ANY of these dresses to another event for the rest of the season. It’s weird, right?

Weirdly, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian were smart about wearing Gucci – they didn’t go for new pieces from the latest collection, they picked out some “vintage” Gucci. This looks like Tom Ford-era Gucci to me, and by that I mean… late ‘90s, dark witch slipdress realness. I enjoy it.

Speaking of dark witch realness, I’m actually really enjoying Dakota Johnson’s witchy vibes lately. She wore this witchy Gucci dress to the event – it’s from Gucci’s Spring 2019 line, so this witch-wear is burned. No one else will wear it on any red carpet now.

Oh, here’s Lana Del Rey to really bring the dark witch realness. Lana wore some Gucci Spring 2019 witch wear. I love her, but this dress is horrendous.

Jared Leto reps for Gucci, so of course he came. He looks like a gigantic a–hole in that hat, and I keep waiting for the #MeToo stories to come out about him. Just something to keep your eye on.

Sam Taylor Johnson and Aaron Taylor Johnson. I mean… the pigtails are unnecessary and inappropriate on a woman of her age and stature. The friggin’ dust ruffle on her dress is also unnecessary.

    Calle me crazy (krazy?) but I love those vintage Guccis, and how they look on both K&K. Would totally own either of them. Dakota looks really good too.

    • josephine says:

      Kourtney’s is ok but Kim’s looks like a cheap prom dress, especially with the horrid styling.

  2. WingKingdom says:

    Kim is veering into Wildenstein territory.

    • Lala11_7 says:


    • LahdidahBaby says:

      So true.

    • dietcokehead says:

      I thought you were making an unkind exaggeration until I scrolled up to look at the pics. Yikes.

      • Cal says:

        You know whose face I saw there? Feckin Naomi Campbell! That wouldn’t surprise me in the least, such is Kim’s skewed obsession.
        (As for Sam Taylor Wood/Johnson whatever….in my book she can do no wrong! I just love her)

    • Escondista says:

      Yes so much surgery! I didn’t have my glasses on and was scrolling and thought she was Melania!

      • Tallia says:

        OMG this! Her eyes have that pulled kitty cat look. YIKEs.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Her eyes are just freakish now. The amount of space under her eyes is just not human. It is totally the Melania-Special.

        Is that filler? Do they just put so much filler over the cheekbones and under-eye bags that the eye slits move upward? WTF am I looking at?

    • Bubble bee says:

      Every so often she goes through this cat faced phase and then it seems like she backs off for awhile and then the cycle starts again

    • Barrett says:

      It’s the lips….ugh. She was best w her natural lips. Kourtney looks best out of all of them, the least jacked.

      • Nancy says:

        I agree. Kourtney has a great figure as opposed to Kim who has to walk in the door sideways. I think Kourtney is so much more confident with herself, but Kim can’t see it as she is blinded by her continuous reflection in the mirror. Jared Leto seriously had his best days as Jordan Catalano.

      • BANANIE says:

        Kourtney definitely looks the most comfortable and likely IS the most comfortable with herself because she hasn’t wanted to/hasn’t felt the need to change herself so drastically.

        After all, Kim didn’t say Kourtney was the “least pretty” but the “least interesting to look at.” It’s certainly interesting to look at Kim’s jacked up face, but not for the reason she was hoping.

      • Kitten says:

        Yup! Kourtney has likely had small tweaks here and there (and of course breast enhancement) but her face still looks like her face. To me, she’s the most attractive.

    • AnnaKist says:

      Her entire face…eek!

    • Laur says:

      That’s all I can see now. She’s gone too far, I know we should look further than beauty but since that’s all she’s focused on I don’t feel too bad saying that I think she’s ruined her face.

      • Kitten says:

        The problem is that if we look further than beauty with these people, then we find ourselves in a cavernous abyss. There’s nothing there beyond the superficial.

    • Usedtobe says:

      I was thinking Donatella territory. Yikes!

    • Lama Bean says:

      I was just thinking about how much I miss her original face.

    • ans says:

      She also has a SHHHHHHEEEEET TON of makeup on

    • FredsMother says:

      That is exactly what I thought when I saw the picture. Startling.

  3. Lenn says:

    Why is this Aaron Taylor Johnson person pouting like that?

    • Rosalee says:

      Pigtails on a woman her age and stature..a shot of ageism and a scolding for not knowing her station in life. Well, she is wearing braids not pigtails. Geez, I was wearing my little dress on the prarire outfit today. But, Levi’s and a white shirt and perhaps a very short braid will suffice for a woman my age and stature

      • DameLara says:

        Yeah but I hope you didn’t seduce an underage boy while you were in your 40′s.
        This hairstyle just adds another level of icky to their already problematic relationship.They can paint her as whatever genius and visionary they want,to me they’re the same as that dude from Green Mile and the little girl he preyed on.

      • Chaine says:

        To me they’re the same as the president of France and his teacher-predator-wife.

      • ladie says:

        Yeah, agree. Disregarding anything about her personally – I don’t agree with telling women that they’re too old to wear their hair however they want. You wanna wear a pink frilly tutu and pigtails at age 55? Go for it! Wear what makes you happy!

      • Eden75 says:


        Their whole thing creeps me out, 100% but that is not what I am here to comment on.

        I am a business woman with hair I can sit on and no one is telling me I cannot wear my hair however I want. I have been told for years that I am too old for hair this long, I tell those people that they can kiss my a$$. I wear double dutch braids a lot, especially when traveling. The day someone tells me that my hair is inappropriate for a woman or my age and stature is the day I tell them to f**k off. #longhairdontcare #longhairedoldladiesrock

      • Rosalee says:

        No..I did not seduce a young man in my 40’s but people were just as judgmental when I married my wife.

      • AnnaKist says:

        Eden75: Your comment made me chortle. My 31-year-old daughter has hair she can sit on, too. Mostly, she buns it for work, but people sometimes ask her the same, telling her “it’s about time” she cut it. She tells them they’re welcome to move aside her hair and kiss her arse, too!

        When my kids were at primary school, there was a teacher I became quite close to. She was nearing her 60s and had very long, grey hair. She sometimes tied it back, and as she rode a bike to work, it was often waving in the wind. So many people criticised her for her hair and clothing, which used to tick me off. She was a passionate and brilliant teacher, with high intellect, very artistic, socially aware and involved, funny, kind, generous, inclusive…. and just one of those truly wonderful human beings. That’s what I wished people had seen.

      • babco says:

        We don t need to be ageist … or we could effing start with Jared Leto.

      • sommolierlady says:

        I’m 62, do I have to give up my winter panda ears hat?

      • JennyJenny says:

        I love you! I’m not giving up my panda hat either!

      • Eden75 says:

        @AnnaKist: Ha! Your daughter is my spirit animal :) My other pet peeves are people who touch it without asking (it’s super curly as well and I wear it down most of the time) and those who want to touch it to see if it’s real. I have asked people if I can touch their boobs after they have touched my hair. They get all uppity and all I said after was I wanted to see if they were real. Personal space people, don’t get in mine, I won’t ask to get in yours.

      • jj says:

        @DameLara and @Chaine — Aaron Taylor Johnson wasn’t underage, he was 18 and she was 42 when they met. They’ve been together now 9 years and are the parents to two kids. They seem happy enough. And regarding their relationship as well as the Macrons’ marriage: um, it seems that everyone is doing just fine. Poor little Emmanuel only rose to the position of President of France. Why are people so uncomfortable with older women??

    • BANANIE says:

      I’m glad I read this thread. I had a teacher growing up who was on the older side and had super-long, below-her-waist gray hair. And I didn’t think it was weird or age-inappropriate, but, as a child, I thought it was creepy and witch-like.

      I admit that as I’ve gotten older I have been in the camp of “just cut it off already.” Not in a mean way, but out of pressure. For instance I’m 26 but I cut my own below-my-shoulders hair into a lob because it’s super curly and people in the office told me it was “unprofessional.”

      I realize now that I shouldn’t let that get to me. Time to grow out my hair and keep it long!

      • Lady D says:

        Curls are beautiful, curls rock and I bet yours are gorgeous. The only ones telling you it looks unprofessional are the jealous biddys who don’t have them.

      • LANITA says:

        UGH the you’re too old for blah blah blah stuff drives me crazy! I’m 42 and look about 28 but even if I didn’t that wouldn’t stop me from wearing my hair however the hell I wanted (which today is in two dutch braids ending in mini buns with my sides shaved!)

      • leia says:

        Good of you to mention that you look 28 rather than 42. I mean, who would ever want to look 42, right? You told on yourself there and it’s very telling but not very pretty.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      Because he’s incredibly hot and he can pose like that.

  4. RBC says:

    Kim looks good here. The dress shows off her curves but in a more subtle way. Maybe Kanye should stay in Uganda and not be around to tell her how to dress?

  5. Jane says:

    Love Dakota and Lana’s dresses!

  6. grabbyhands says:

    Kim looks like a puffier faced version of Melania if she stayed in the spray tan booth too long.

    Of course, her husband is trying to be 45′s right hand man, so that may be on purpose.

  7. Beth says:

    The Kardashians look beautiful in those dresses. At 40 years old, I still sometimes wear my hair in pigtail braids while doing yard work or house work, but never while dressed up like Sam Taylor Johnson

  8. Talie says:

    Yeah, it’s def tom ford for gucci – one of his best collections circa 2002. I remember it because I loved the campaign and the models, shot by the now out-of-favor Testino.

  9. B says:

    Her face looks horrendous.

  10. Chaine says:

    I can’t really see much about any of the dresses against that dark backdrop.

  11. GreenQueen says:

    I just saw my plastic surgeon last week for a touch of Botox and I can’t help thinking… how many units of Botox and filler does it take to achieve that level of stiffness?? Kim’s face looks baaaadd, she needs to slow down with that shit.

    • a reader says:

      seriously HER FACE.

      i botox as well and i do not look plastic like she does. so many surgeries when she was stunning to begin with…. plus an inordinate amount of fillers…. definitely overdone.

  12. sassbr says:

    She’s chosen vintage designer dresses for other occasions too, like Versace-I like that trend and I hope to see a lot of celebs doing that.

  13. Susie Moloney says:

    In honour of this post I will wear my hair in braids today AT MY AGE OH WHAT A SCANDAL. Don’t tell a woman something isn’t age appropriate. Screw that. That said, they’re probably not for dress up, but let the woman wear her hair the way she wants. I will fight over this.

    • Eden75 says:

      *high five* I have gotten into arguments over this.

      • Cal says:

        Yep! Nothing we see on any red carpet bash is ‘appropriate’ to anything or anyone…..are Sam’s pigtails more outré than massive fake tits on display, as the norm? Aaaargh.
        Go Sam! 👏🏼

    • MoGrianach says:

      Nearly 43, waist length curly hair not much of a fan of braids but not a stranger to being told (only by other women) my hair isn’t age appropriate. Screw that, it’s my head, I’ll wear it how I like.

  14. me says:

    Kim changes her skin color so quickly, it really does amaze me. She was pretty dark in her Victoria Secret “costume”. She was then literally as white as snow for her Pamela Anderson Halloween costume, and now she’s back to being dark. Makes me wonder if it’s done through photoshop and in real life she’s always the same color…or…

  15. Steff says:

    This is a art and film event so why are Kardashians there? They keep creeping into these spaces they don’t belong.

  16. Stacy Dresden says:

    Lana del Rey is the new face of Gucci’s fragrance Forever Guilty and she will star alongside Jordan Catalano up there in an advertisement. They had a promotional party in the Hollywood Forever cemetery and it looked super fun to me.

  17. huckle says:

    It’s interesting how everybody goes off on the women in this post and how ridiculous they look but there’s like three comments about Jared Leto.

  18. Starkiller says:

    What is the purpose of Leto? He can’t act, can’t sing, can’t dress, and looks like a greasy early 2010s hipster. Just…why?

    thinks Sam looks great—I adore Vampire’s Wife and am really happy to see the line getting some red-carpet exposure recently. I style my hair like that when it won’t behave and I can’t spend any more time on it, didn’t have time to wash it, etc. Why is her husband pulling that face? Is he trying to make us think he has impressive cheekbones?

    • DiegoInSF says:

      I thought you were describing the Ks. I’m not his fan but he was great in the Dallas Buyers’ Club, he won an Oscar so to say he can’t act is a stretch.

  19. NicoleinSavannah says:

    So, are the Kardashians going to be some new monsters for a Guillermo movie?!

  20. SpillDatT says:

    OK serious question because I think Kim has worn “vintage” items from other designer’s vaults as well.

    HOW do they fit her diaper butt into those dresses? Honestly asking. Do they put in extra panels? Like HOW?

    Because there is no way in Hell, Kim’s plastic bum in fitting into anything from any designer’s dresses which are sadly made for women of a certain size and proportions.

  21. G says:

    I went to a 30 seconds to Mars concert in 2016 and Jared Leto can definetly sing. No tracks- vocal a capella. At one point, his stage people brought up a girl from the crowd. When he asked her age- she said 17 and he promptly removed her hands from his waist and sent her to side and said “I’m old enough to be you father- don’t want any problems”

    As far as Kim, she was so beautiful in 2007-2009. Could she not see that??!!

  22. Mel says:

    Whatever Kim is doing into her face, she needs to stop. She’s getting cat cheeks….

  23. Sarah says:

    Sheesh, Kim looks H A R S H these days.

  24. Orangegirl says:

    we get it…your husband is slightly younger than you…but PLEASE

  25. brooksie says:

    Kim and Naya Rivera could be twins!

    • wolfgirl says:

      Long hair ( @ 56) and don’t care. I have on occasion bowed to the ‘you should cut it ’ pressure. But it didn’t suit me and I was unhappy with it … Please let’s not judge each other on a ‘ too old for that look’ basis. I love this site because of the opposite x

  26. Anastasia says:

    Kim really needs to stop effing with her nose and lips, STAT.

  27. MoGrianach says:

    Wearing her hair and make up like that which is similar to how she used to a decade ago just emphasises how much she’s cut up and injected her face.
