Kim Kardashian in McQueen at the VF Oscar party: wet-look fuggery?

2020 Vanity Fair Oscar Party - Arrivals

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West came out to the Vanity Fair Oscar party. Do you ever wonder if Kanye is actually well-received at these kinds of events? Yes, he gets celebrities to come out to his Sunday Service stuff, but what happens if he tries to prosthelytize at the VF Oscar party? While wearing a vinyl suit?? I wonder if A-list celebrities talk to Kim. Probably, right? At this point, most celebrities will probably say hi and chat with her. Kim wore this Alexander McQueen gown which looks like a vintage/archive piece. She paired it with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and wet-look hair (gross). Kanye’s suit is by Dunhill.

Emily Ratajkowski in a tube top and a skirt in off-white. I don’t have the ID on this but it is… on-brand for Emily. She loves to wear body-baring stuff, especially to the VF party. It would be more groundbreaking at this point for her to turn up in something with sleeves and high collar.

Mindy Kaling in Reem Acra – I was a big fan of Mindy’s Oscar look (mustard D&G) and I get why she changed, but this is just kind of meh. On the plus side, it looks really comfortable and the purple is very pretty. I’m still going to need her to STAHP with BJ Novak though. Enough. I want to sit Mindy down and play Selena Gomez’s “Lose You To Love Me” on repeat until she GETS it.

    I loved both of Mindy’s gowns. Kim looked awful.

    • minx says:

      Mindy looked fantastic all night. Kim looked like toilet paper was hanging off of her.

      • goofpuff says:

        Yes that is exactly what it looks like! Like her cat got into the toilet paper roll and then she decided to throw it on as a dress. And she always looks so uncomfortable, probably because she’s wearing corset and several layers of spanx.

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      I agree. Mindy looked especially lovely in that purple gown.

      Why the hell is Kanye wearing beige suede shoes with that black costume…and why is he wearing a vinyl suit? Oh right, because Kanye.

      Kim’s gown…Okay, I’m done here.

  2. josephine says:

    I don’t know who that Emily person is but she looked awful, like she needed a nap and shouldn’t have come straight from the pool.

    Kim just looked kinda dated, like one of those soap opera stars who is stuck in the wrong decade. And her make-up is shockingly bad.

  3. ME says:

    No no no no no to Kim and Kanye. I see toilet paper.

    Also, Emily yikes ! WTH?

    • Chrissy says:

      ME, I thought Kim looked like she just got out of the shower, realized the towels were all in the wash and covered herself in toilet paper to dry off instead. She looks so bad and Kanye in what looks like Naugahyde looks just as bad. He must be sweating like crazy. These two, Yuck!!

      • AnnaKist says:

        And she forgot to wash her hair while in that shower. She looks dated and a little bit grubby. As for her husband, well, I’m not going to criticise the mentally-challenged.

  4. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Cue Emily’s next interview about bodies within the feminism realm in 5, 4, 3…….

    Kim looks like she frantically tore through crates of tampons, hosed em down and grabbed her glue gun.

    • omnibre says:

      Honestly, in the awful choice between having to spend 10 mins with Kim or Emily, 100% Kim. She at least knows what she’s doing and is honest about it. Emily’s endless ACTUALLY I’M POSING NAKED IN THIS DELIBERATELY SEXY POSE TO COMBAT CHILD POVERTY, SOMEHOW, HOW DARE YOU TRY TO SEXUALIZE IT is bloody annoying.

      • Liz version 700 says:

        It is funny that you say that as I was just thinking that Emily’s dress would look good with Lara Dern’s Wild West brothel look.

      • But she didn’t say that, and has actually been pretty open and honest about her motives like most women are when it comes to these issues. The problem is that some of those motives given don’t match the narrative about What’s Best 4 Women, so it’s easier to dismiss people as lying blanks. Her look here is boring. People have a pretty difficult time proving immodest liberal women to be nothingburgers though.

    • Sandy Eggo says:

      haha! Deconstructed tampons is the first thing that came to mind when I saw Kim’s dress.

      Also: is it body shaming if I wondered how long Emily had to forego solid food to look like that?

      • omnibre says:

        No short term fasting would get that body. I doubt she ate McDonalds in the car on the way there, but she’s naturally just very thin.

      • Veronica says:

        There was an interview some years back where an actress basically admitted they all pretty much do day long fasts with limited eating and drinking for these award shows, especially if they’re wearing slinkier gowns – and definitely major dieting in the weeks up to it. Absolutely would not shock me if Emily R was doing the same, particularly since even minor bloat is read as pregnancy these days.

    • Derriere says:

      It’s called sustainable design, people. She reused her home furnishings to create this masterpiece of a dress. A+ for effort, Kim! /s

  5. (TheOG)jan90067 says:

    At this point, Kim looks more like a mannequin and/or blow up doll: SO plastic!! (esp. considering she doesn’t smile or emote at all!). Kanye looks like a seal. Yuck.

    Emily Ratawhatever: we KNOW your body is all you have to bring to the party, literally. Now, put it away for a while. Her husband *still* gives me creepy-control vibes.

    Mindy looked great in the yellow gown. Not loving this one a lot (though the color is lovely). Agree with you on BJ.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Kim can’t even stand like a normal person. Her arms are always so stiff, it adds to the plastic effect.

  6. Snowslow says:

    What is this TAMPON EXTRAVAGANZA?!

    And why does it have its own bodyguard?

  7. HK9 says:

    Ok, here’s my quibble with Kim’s makeup. She always has the same look. I’m tired of seeing the same palette on her. It’s sooooooooooooooo boring now. Is she allergic to colour? Can’t she do something different?

  8. Goldengirlslover34 says:

    Kim’s makeup looks really heavy and that’s saying a lot.

  9. Valiantly Varnished says:

    “She’s a full on Monet. Like the paintings, see, from far away it’s okay. But up close it’s a big old mess”. – Cher, Clueless

    I felt that this quote from my favorite film sums up my feelings about Kim’s dress perfectly.

  10. lucy2 says:

    Kim’s whole look is terrible, unsurprisingly.
    Emily’s is tacky. Also unsurprising.
    I like Mindy’s dress a lot. Her yellow dress was a stunner though.

    • Spicecake38 says:

      Agree with everything you said here!

    • Lady2Lazy says:

      Mindy was stunning in the yellow gown! She looked radiant!! Not crazy about the styling of this gown, but I do love the color.
      In regards to Krashy and Krazy, every time the appear somewhere, it’s abysmal! They have no style or taste nor do they comprehend how ridiculous and unimportant they are! Krashy married him to up her status in the world hoping that they would compete against the Queen and Jay-Z, which would, could never happen due to their own stupidity and ego!
      As for Emily, she has nothing substantial to offer so she sticks with these outlandish outfits to be noticed.

  11. smee says:

    Kanye’s leather/pleather jacket without shirt makes me think of wearing running shoes without socks – yuck.

    • Spicecake38 says:

      Yep,Kim is all wet looking and Kanye is wearing leather/vinyl I don’t know what -and I can’t help but think how hot and sweaty he must feel under all that.Like if she tried to sit on his lap or something she’d slide right off because they both look slippery and wet.

      • Liz version 700 says:

        Cleaning up coffee off the table because the image of Kim sliding off Kanye’s lap gave me a laughing fit

  12. Flamingo says:

    Y’all my hair looked like Kim’s after a long weekend of camping and I was mortified. I can’t imagine deciding that this was the best look she could come up with and wearing it out to be photographed multiple times like this. Greasy hair is not cute.

    • AMA1977 says:

      IKR? It’ s like what your hair looks like when you’ve had the flu or a stomach virus for 48 hours and can’t crawl out of bed to shower. I’m sure it’s clean and smells lovely, because I’m also sure it has a ton of product in it, but it looks like a dirty, greasy mess. For a naturally pretty woman, she has bizarre ideas about what looks attractive.

  13. babsjohnson says:

    Kanye looks good.

  14. Leskat says:

    Kim always does this super stiff, arms just a little too far from her sides, shoulders just a little too high and hunched pose. I’m assuming it’s because she’s in clothes that are 3 sizes too small and she’s corseted and trussed up and is so uncomfortable. For someone who spends so much time in front of cameras, she sure looks awkward and uncomfortable in front of them.

    • BeanieBean says:

      That’s my thinking, too. She found the one pose that hurts the least and sticks with it. And she’s taking shallow breaths, too, ’cause deeper (or normal) will hurt.

  15. Andrea says:

    Maybe her and BJ have an arrangement?

  16. Andrew’s Nemesis says:

    Bride of Frankenstein

  17. Char says:

    The archive McQueen is a piece of art, but why a) they decided to let her wear? It’s clearly not her size, since it’s runway sample and it doesn’t look fit, it looks about to rip on the seams b) she just can’t flatter herself and do a good simple make up and a good simple hair? Save the greasy-bronzer-heavy look for your own show. And by this point, Kim’s fashion game is beyond Kanye, he looks horrible.

  18. naomipaige99 says:

    She looks trashy as hell!!!!

  19. StormsMama says:

    Emily’s look is straight outta the early 2000s. That low slung skirt. So tacky.
    She looks like she’s at a pool in Vegas.

  20. Gingerbee says:

    Love Mindy’s dresses. The Kar/Jenner’s are ugly.

  21. Livethelifeaquatic says:

    Kim has gained some weight lately. So have I, as usual by February I don’t give a crap. Always have that same 10 lbs to lose before we get back into boating all summer.

    Anyway, the dress is way too small. First pic look at her skin under her arm literally hanging out. No good. She looked super uncomfortable and makeup way too thick

  22. Sass says:

    Kim ugh. That dress is bad.

    I also hate the wet look. On anyone. Unless you’re literally at a pool or some shirt.

    The others were inoffensive but meh

  23. Grant says:

    Emily looks like she belongs at the Grammys or VMAs, not the Oscars. I love Mindy’s dress, she looks stunning. I think that is a gorgeous color on her and her mermaid hair is beautiful.

    Kim K. looks like she got attacked by a feral cat who clawed the sh!t out of her dress.

  24. Originaltessa says:

    Kim’s face looks ridiculous. She is morphing into her mother. They all are.

  25. L84Tea says:

    The tube top getup looks like something right out of 1999-2000!

  26. STRIPE says:

    Kim is wearing McQueens Oyster Dress. One of, if not the, most famous of his work. It is my favorite piece of clothing ever and I am very perplexed as to why they gave it to her of all people to wear. It’s wearing her! Ugh. This would have been so solid for a Charlize or similar. What a bummer it was brought out of the archives for Kim and for this event.

    Saying something nice: Kim seems a student of fashion, and regardless of how we feel about Kanye and his designs, I think he is too. At least it’s being worn by someone who (I hope) understands the significance.

    • Originaltessa says:

      Thanks for the history of the dress. I googled it, and in the context it was meant to be shown, it is a beautiful dress. Apparently Kanye purchased it, so Kim now owns the gown. They obviously had to rebuild aspects of it. She’s not sample size.

      • AMA1977 says:

        Me too, I appreciate the history! The original gown(s) was/were beautiful, unique, and really evocative of the sea and the ruffled, natural texture of oyster shells. I can’t imagine the work that went into sewing each individual ruffle; they look to be silk organza, just lovely. I was lucky to see the Oscar de la Renta gown exhibit when it was touring nationally a few years back, and the craftsmanship and attention to detail was breathtaking. I’d love to see this one in person.

        So sad that it was altered (not in a flattering way) for Kim to sausage herself into it. I hope she understands the significance too, but it would have been better to commission a version that could be created to fit her proportions in the way the original was fitted to the models instead of squeezing into an altered version that flatters neither wearer or creator.

        And let me just say, I am far from sample-size myself! But Kim should dress for the body she has. She’s not tall, thin, or willowy. There are lots of designs that could flatter her, but she insists on wearing poorly altered couture and everything is 3 sizes too small.

  27. Jaded says:

    They all get on my last nerve.

  28. Libby says:

    Kim’s foundation is so radically different to the rest of her body, it makes her head look disembodied.

  29. pyritedigger says:

    Kim’s face makes me so sad. The plastic surgery and the gallons of makeup just do NOT look attractive. The body dysmorphia in that family is off the charts.

  30. Veronica says:

    Kim’s dress reminds of those fake toilet paper dresses you do at lame bachelorette parties. Hideous.

    Emily Ratajkowski looks high key trashy to me to the point of being humorless about it. This isn’t your night. Pull the f*cking skirt up to your waist where it’s meant to sit instead of precariously informing us of the extent of your wax job.

    Mindy’s dress is boring but gorgeous color.

  31. Granite says:

    Emily Rata’s personality annoys me, but to be honest, I do find her beautiful. She managed to look incredible in that outfit, as tacky as it is. Kim K on the other hand….no! I can’t get over how bad her face looks! She looks terrible and puffy. Her looks are long gone. She looks like claymation.

  32. Ladykatan says:

    I can’t unsee the fact that Kim’s dress looks like a tampon that went through a shredder..

  33. Val says:

    All that money and they can’t afford to put lotion on Kanye’s ashy ass knuckles!
    That’s all I’ve got.

  34. Hannah says:

    At 1st glance, the way (everyone) was made to pose on the VF circle – probs for maximum photo opportunities. I legit thought Kim was a wax work. 🙈 Please forgive me. I know how bitchy that just sounded but everyone standing on that VF posing circle just looked weird AF to me

  35. liriel says:

    Actors with Kim. Well, she acted in one “movie”.. The dynamics must be interesting. She looks so uncomfortable. Emily’s half naked outfit doesn’t work for such a glamorous party.

  36. CD2020 says:

    Kim does the wet look to blend her weaves with her real hair. Because no photo shop on the red carpet. Wide as a bus.

  37. lucy2 says:

    I know, right? Maybe they really are just best friends.

  38. Bebe says:

    That’s true, but Mindy has spoken about their dynamic in interviews/on the record before and it is rather… jarring, maybe?

  39. Wow2 says:

    Thank you! I have a ex/best friend and our relationship seems similar to mindy and bjs. There is nothing wrong with it!!! Maybe they even still hook up, my friend and I do. Again, were both adults and this friendship works for us. There is nothing wrong with it
