Was Kendall Jenner’s black Monot dress inappropriate for a wedding reception?


Kendall Jenner was kind of quiet in 2021, right? She launched her stupid 818 Tequila last February, but other than that, she just kind of wandered around here and there, working occasionally and mostly staying quiet. Towards the end of 2021, she did one notable thing: she was bridesmaid at her friend Lauren Perez’s wedding. For the ceremony, Kendall wore a simple-looking blue satin/sateen dress. For the reception, she changed into the Monot dress you can see in these pics from Lauren’s Instagram. Ladies, what would you do if one of your bridesmaids changed into boob floss for your wedding reception? Lauren seemed fine with it.

All eyes may have been on Kendall Jenner at BFF Lauren Perez’s wedding, but the bride didn’t seem to mind. After Jenner, 26, served as a bridesmaid alongside Bella Hadid for the November 2021 nuptials, the group changed out of their blue silk dresses into separate outfits for the reception — and the supermodel caused quite a stir with her barely-there Mônot LBD covered in cutouts.

Perez shared snaps from her big day on Instagram, including a few of Jenner in the skin-baring design, which sparked backlash.

“Inappropriate outfit at a wedding @kendalljenner I’m embarrassed for you,” one person commented, adding “#cringe.”

After Perez chimed in, saying she thought Jenner looked “stunning” and that she “loved” the look, the model herself replied, “@laurenperez obvi asked for your approval in advance too.”

While Jenner went an unconventional route with her bridesmaid attire, the bride kept things traditional in a strapless Vera Wang gown for her Jewish ceremony in Miami — though she did change into a Vivienne Westwood dress and custom Nike Air Force 1s for the reception.

Yeah… I actually think it’s fine, especially if Kendall got the bride to approve her boob floss ahead of time? Personally, I think these days, reception dresses are more like “anything goes.” Most people want to change into something comfortable that they can eat, drink and dance in, although I’m not sure this Monot dress is that. And hey, at least Kendall didn’t wear white to another woman’s wedding. Also: I definitely feel that over the past decade especially, it’s become more common for wedding guests to wear black to the ceremony and party. Which I like!

    Do I like it? No.
    Does my opinion matter? No!

    As long as the bride is happy then I’ll just sit here and shrug at that ugly dress and the place of nepotism models in the world.

    Although based on the B&W pic at the bottom I think their actual bridesmaid dresses may be worse… What are they made of??

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      It looked so is cheap. With exception to Bella and the bride all the dresses look kind of cheap. But as long as the bride is happy.
      This was a thirst trap dress.

    • wellsie says:

      What are those bridesmaid dresses and why do they exist? So odd, like loose sausage casing?

    • Katherine says:

      I mean… going solely off the bride’s facial expression in that one photo, I wouldn’t say she is okay with the dress (or rather – state of undress)…. My personal 5 cents: the dress is inappropriate and it makes a rare bride to be okay with that kind of outfit at her wedding reception. I would be furious and my night would’ve been ruined (I know, I know, it’s silly, but I’m just being honest, I know I would feel that way). I probably wouldn’t say anything because I’m shy and unassertive but if she showed me the dress in advance I would never agree to this.

      • Same says:

        I agree with you , I would have been a pissed off bitch . No, you cannot wear that monstrosity to my wedding reception , it’s my day , get on board or stay home . So cheap, so tacky , then there was the dress ….

      • Ange says:

        If you’re so focused on what someone else is wearing to your wedding that it ruins your night then I’d be questioning if you’re focused on the right things. Marriage is a big deal, the party afterwards not so much. Just let them look tacky and enjoy the occasion.

        Seriously a friend of mine wore a white dress to mine and I didn’t even notice until I looked at the pictures afterwards.

      • Otaku fairy says:

        @Ange: Good point.

      • Christine says:

        One does not have two models as bridesmaids if they aren’t fully confident themselves. They just don’t.

      • A Fan says:

        @Christine Scorpio:

        Great point.

  2. Seraphina says:

    Kendall sure likes attention. Anyway she can get it.

    • Piratewench says:

      Yeah this dress was all about her getting attention. I would question the loyalty of a friend who took a special day for me and decided to wear extremely, undeniably attention- grabbing attire to my wedding.

      And many people don’t have the confidence to say “I would rather you not wear that”. Kendall should have just known better. But of all the Kardashians I’ve always seen her to be the most self-absorbed, most entitled and least empathetic (which is saying something considering the group I’m talking about lol). People always say she’s so chill, but this move is the opposite of chill. It’s rude and trashy.

      • Megan2 says:

        Fun story about people wearing attention-grabbing attire at weddings:

        My (now ex) Mother-in-Law wore a FULL LENGTH, FLORAL LACE, WHITE MERMAID GOWN to my wedding to her son. She also wore flowers in her hair. It was decidedly weird… in our pictures, she looked like she was marrying her own son. (It was a casual, outdoor affair, and I wore a tea-length semi-formal dress in off-white.)

        There were a lot of red flags… his family was just one of them, and his mother by far the biggest, LOL.

      • MissG says:

        @Megan2 Love your story! My sister-in-law (in her 50’s) wore a bride costume to her son’s Halloween-themed wedding (all the guests dressed up). Completely decked out in a floor-length white bridal gown with flowers in her hair also. So cringe my god.

      • bosandi says:

        My ex mother-in-law wore something similarly terrible to my wedding. Back and boobs were out at a formal catholic ceremony – not to mention a new platinum dye job . She got the attention she wanted but not in a good way. She obviously did it for spite but it wasn’t enough to ruin my day. It was just a poor reflection on her, embarrassed her son, and solidified my thoughts of her. Glad I’m done with that rubbish.

        On the filp side, if a friend or bridesmaid wanted to change into something like that for the reception, I don’t think I’d care. And if the bride in this case didn’t care, why should we? I personally think the dress is tacky and inappropriate but it’s a reflection on her.

    • superashes says:

      Yeah. Cosign. I read the link, was like “well, if the bride is cool with the dress being black who cares” then clicked the link and was like “whew, no, not appropriate, regardless of what the bridge says”. It was a dress designed to steal focus and that is what makes it a faux pas, even at a reception, and no one wants to have to tell someone not to wear a specific dress.

    • tealily says:

      Yeah, I think it’s pretty rude. Although, I would never have looked at this chick’s wedding photos if Kendall hadn’t worn that dress and this post was written, so there’s that.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Neither would I. But yes, this dress is an example of what NOT to wear at the bridal party. Nope, nada, zip, and absolutely not. Reminds me of someone else…….

  3. Jais says:

    The only issue I have is that its got an optical illusion vibe and is really and truly giving me a headache staring at it. Migraine sufferers beware.

  4. M says:

    I see she’s starting to get the Kardashian special at the plastic surgeon. Never would’ve known it was her.

    • Em says:

      Which is such a shame because she was so much prettier with her original face. It was so youthful and normal, and now she looks like an overworked clone of her 40-60 something year old sisters and mom.

  5. Laalaa says:


  6. Andrew's Nemesis says:

    Yes, it’s inappropriate, because it ensures that all attention is on her.

    • STRIPE says:

      This. Also she was a bridesmaid so she wore another dress to the ceremony then changed into that. I just think it is so so tacky and rude to call attention to yourself like that at your friends wedding.

      Also it doesn’t mean much to me that her friend allegedly ok’ed the outfit. What was she going to say?? Maybe I’m too much of a people pleaser but it would have been so painfully awkward for me to tell a friend and an adult person “no because I’m the bride so don’t upstage me.”

      You just hope that your friends have a shred of decency.

    • Bettyrose says:

      The bride invited Kendall Jenner (and apparently chooses to be friends with the above referenced). So clearly the bride is cool with/enjoys this stupid drama. More power to them all.

      • Annetommy says:

        How about the groom? It was his wedding too.

      • bettyrose says:

        I don’t know anything about either one of them but the story is about the bride. Using the transitive property, though, I would say the groom loves this circus too if he’s marrying a woman who’s close friends/or is himself close friends with a K-Jenner.

    • It’sJustBlanche says:

      I bet the bride approved it because she knew then her wedding would be in all the tabloids.

  7. Vera says:

    What is Bella Hadid wearing though? Looks like a sale dress at Charlotte Russe at the mall circa 2000.

  8. No. It also looks like the quality of something from Shein.

  9. LaraW” says:

    That third pic looks like the bride is walking to her doom.

    Also all of them are going to get omicron.

    • damejudi says:

      I think it looks like she knows her bridesmaids are planning to tear the train off of her wedding dress.

      Terrible and unintentionally funny photo.

  10. jferber says:

    I’m gonna say no. She stands out more than the bride. That said, I’m sure the bride doesn’t even care. I just read that the IG model who got fame by licking toilet seats on airplanes, Ava Louise, is teasing a reveal of Kendall’s boyfriend, Devin Booker, on her DM’s. Waiting for the drama.

  11. JJ says:

    I think it sucks that she couldn’t let her friend have the spotlight for one measly day. Being friends with a hugely well known celebrity would have its challenges and you’d constantly be playing second fiddle to them… I think the right thing to do on their wedding day would be to wear a dress that doesn’t scream for attention.

    • Seaflower says:


      • Lily says:

        Idk. Maybe the bride loved it precisely because she gets more attention due to it (both Kendall’s dress and having famous friends). The wedding was in November. It’s a new year and we’re still talking about it.

      • Fortuona says:

        She has always had famous friends thought . The guy cudding her is the group photo is Dan Chetrit who dad owns a big chunk of Manhatten/Chicago(they are both Morrocan Jews) . They met through Miles Ritchie who it Lionels boy

        And now her father in law owns 100+ Dukin Donuts and whole load of other NY retail

  12. Smegmoria says:

    I’ve worn black to every wedding I’ve been too, even my own. But my tits were not out. Whatever floats her goat I guess.

  13. Noki says:

    Just because you Can doesnt mean you Should. And these Kardashian women are a bunch of bullies,that bride probably agreed so she doesnt face their wrath, you only have to look at them sideways once and they kick you out of their little cliques.

  14. Miranda says:

    If the bride is OK with you wearing a skanky $5 Yandy dress to her wedding reception, she’s not your friend. She is your frenemy and she is using you to make herself look hotter.

  15. Amy Bee says:

    No it’s not, she wore it to the reception.

  16. Driver8 says:

    I wore white to my best friend’s wedding. It was a Bohemian flowy tunic, skirt set. She doesn’t remember, but I cringe when I think about it. Tbf, it was end of May in hot as hell southern Texas (OUTSIDE!) and everyone was dripping in sweat. Thank God it was a small, home family wedding with few pictures. Kendall looks fine to me only because the outfit seems to fit the vibe of her group of friends. Still can’t stand her.

    • Amanda says:

      Same – only it was just a semi-friends’ wedding AND I asked permission before! It was very 50s – boat neck, tea length…I cringe now, but I don’t think I stole anyone’s thunder!

  17. Willow says:

    That dress looks really uncomfortable and awkward to wear at a party. She probably wore it just long enough for attention grabbing, money generating photos and then changed.

  18. lucy2 says:

    I hope the bride really was ok with it, and didn’t feel pressured to agree.
    Personally, I think it looks kind of cheap, and all eyes go to Kendall in every photo, not the bride and groom.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      We are all assuming the bride was fine but I have to wonder. Plus, how stressful to ask the bride if a dress you want to wear is appropriate for her, when she has one million things still to accomplish! If you have to ask then you shouldn’t need to ask!

  19. Turtledove says:

    I mean, as other’s have said, the bride was fine with it.

    But as long as we are sharing our non asked for opinions, I find it weird to even think of ASKING the bride.

    “Hey friend, I am thinking of wearing this nipple slip dress that looks more like it belongs in a bondage club than a wedding, do you mind ?”

    I am not a prude, but weddings aren’t nightclubs. Presumably family was there. What a weird thing to wear in front of your friend’s dad, aunties, grandparents…

    And I cannot imagine DANCING in it comfortably. Wardrobe malfunctions are nearly guaranteed.

  20. Normades says:

    This happened in November so Kendull really hasn’t done anything interesting except wear a skanky dress to a reception.
    I don’t think it’s appropriate, not because of the skin, but because it’s the bride’s day and you don’t make it about you.

  21. Lizzie Bathory says:

    Years ago, I, who grew up in the South with punch & cake weddings in church basements, attended a wedding in New Jersey. The crowd was much less rarified than that of this wedding, I’m sure. After worrying a little about showing cleavage, I was stunned to see a wedding guest in a backless black dress with her thong on full display above the cutout back. No one batted an eye. (To be fair, the bride’s mother wore a skintight gold lame dress & a giant teased side ponytail.)

    I learned that day that expectations for weddings can vary quite a bit.

  22. Lizzie says:

    I cannot think of many situations outside of a photo shoot where that dress is appropriate. But it’s a different world and people live for clicks and views.

  23. Merricat says:

    It’s in poor taste, but Kardashians aren’t really known for good taste.

  24. Alexandria says:

    It’s ugly but if the bride is ok, it’s ok.

    What did Bella do to her face…

  25. Juxtapoze says:

    This dress is 100% tacky for ANY occasion.

  26. girl_ninja says:

    I wouldn’t have worn it but if the bride okay’d it then…It does seem as though these Kar-Jenner girls are getting meaner and more selfish.

  27. Otaku fairy says:

    Does the dress itself look good? No. But since the bride okayed it, it’s fine. The fact that Kendall got the bride’s permission first also shows respect and good manners. The coolest thing about this story is how quickly the friend shut down any validity to the pearl-clutching hiss train and was like “nope, I approved it.”

    There’s an assumption that all women are deeply obsessive about other women looking too pretty or too hot at their wedding, or otherwise disrupting their Cinderella pageant moment with a happy announcement (like Meghan Markle’s pregnancy). But sometimes women are a little bit less competitive than that, and have other priorities when it comes to their weddings. I think Kendall’s dress only outshined the bride with the public, because the public doesn’t know the bride as much. For people actually at the wedding who knew the bride and groom, it probably didn’t, because they were focused on how their little girl, niece, cousin, etc. was married.

    • Sof says:

      I agree with you, the bride and groom are always the center of the wedding, that’s the point! They never get overshadowed as all guests are interested in them.

    • ElleV says:

      i’m always fascinated by the power dynamics and unspoken rules around weddings

      the idea that the bride MUST NOT BE UPSTAGED and that dressing or looking too sexy/attractive somehow detracts from her day is so interesting and i feel like it’s begging to be unpacked critically

      way back I attended a wedding where the bride wore a very muted, non-bridal gown, and encouraged her bridesmaids to wear whatever made them feel most beautiful with no restrictions or vetting, which resulted in some very dramatic, colourful and revealing choices.

      the bride wasn’t interested in controlling her friends and didn’t care if they “upstaged” her, and it made me reexamine my own relationship to other womens’ beauty, sexuality and self-expression.

      when i got married i followed her example and seven years later my girlfriends still talk about how beautiful and comfortable they felt that day

  28. MissMarirose says:

    This would be a great submission to AITA on Reddit.
    I’m inclined to say YTA even though she had the bride’s approval just because you’re not supposed to take attention away from the bride and groom and the only purpose of that outfit is to get everyone’s attention. Its purpose is certainly not to cover anything up.

  29. Sof says:

    I’m in two minds: I think that as long as the bride is ok, it should be fine. Then I also think that everyone should wear whatever they want, the bride is not a dictator and she shouldn’t have a say in the guest’s attaires.

  30. lunchcoma says:

    It’s a Kardashian adjacent wedding. I suspect the bride is happy Kendall wore that dress because now people are talking about her, even by association.

  31. Seraphina says:

    I had a thought, maybe she was confused and that is really the BACK of the dress.

  32. els says:

    If she got the approval, guess it’s fine. The dress is hideous tho

  33. Jules says:

    The KardashianJenners are always inappropriate, let’s not try to get deep about this.

  34. HeatherC says:

    If the bride was okay, then I guess it was okay.

    It was still a butt ugly dress though.

  35. Lena says:

    I was at my nephew’s wedding, and his step-brother (from previous to my sister’s marriage so not my nephew) and wife wore jeans with dressier shirts. It didn’t even register with me at the time (well we are in Texas) but I heard the bride and groom were livid at what they thought was a disrespectful act. So I guess the point I’m making is the difference is the asking ahead of time if something like that is okay. As this couple didn’t I guess the bride and groom was were right in thinking it was meant to be disrespectful.

  36. Mimi says:

    For some reason she’s the one I can’t stand the most out of all of them. Untalented. Annoying. Has has everything handed to her. Brat. Whiny. “Model”

  37. Case says:

    I think if a genuine friend asked me if I liked what they picked to wear to my wedding I’d be like “of course you can wear whatever you want!” So I feel bad for the bride. The optical illusion nature of the dress puts Kendall at the center of every photo. It seems mean spirited.

  38. Em says:

    I mean, you kind of know what you’re getting with the Kardashian/Jenners, right? I’m not saying the bride deserved to get her thunder stolen, but you don’t involve the thirstiest family in pop culture in your special day without expecting them to be thirsty. The bride seems to be enjoying the adjacent attention.

    • schmootc says:

      That’s exactly my thought. They’re not classy people, they’re always going to go for the most attention-grabbing choice.

  39. Chaine says:

    So tacky, looks like something from an old-time Frederick’s of Hollywood catalog…

  40. cassandra says:

    Normal wedding: absolutely inappropriate

    Hollywood/Instagram wedding: Eh 🤷‍♀️ I doubt anyone was surprised by her outfit

    This is the most attention Kendall’s gotten in months and I’m sure that was the plan

  41. KBeth says:

    Tacky & gross, exactly what I would expect from her.

  42. jferber says:

    Alexandria, soon we will all never ask the question, “What did she do to her face?” because a constantly morphing face will become the norm (it already has with the moneyed). For example, I just saw a pic of Kendall with a whole new face–with prominent cat eyes. I didn’t even ask. I know.

  43. MelOn says:

    That’s such a “look at me, not her”thing to wear to someone’s wedding, but if the Bride can roll with it, it’s all good.

  44. Robyn says:

    My biggest issue with the “dress” is that it absolutely cost more than my housing for the month, which is more than half my income. But have fun at the wedding, I guess!

  45. Dizza says:

    I wouldn’t wear that dress to a wedding because its ugly as sin.

  46. Lyds says:

    The bride does not want to be upstaged. Just look at her hair…and all her bridesmaids’ hair. Dreadful!!!! The uniform, center-part flowing locks makes this wedding party look like some trashy cult. If she wanted to stand out, pull her hair up or wear a veil or tiara. Even Kendull’s body language and expression in that first pic centers herself as the life of the party…I honestly couldn’t even tell that was a pic from a wedding, let alone the fact that there’s a bride sandwiched in the middle.

    • Fortuona says:

      She did have a veil that covered her upper body but is a Jewish wedding and they have to remove it . She changed as well as they were getting henna tats

  47. Lionel says:

    My friend had to photoshop her SIL’s cleavage out of all their formal wedding pictures. And that was nothing compared to this! How does Kendall’s dress even stay on?

  48. Mary Tosti says:

    I think she looks tacky. I think the only thing that would annoy me is the fact that it’s a wedding and I would hope my guests wouldn’t dress like it’s a night out clubbing.

  49. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Huge eye roll. She wanted people talking about her and used her friend’s wedding. Normal Kardashian shame.

  50. Valentina says:

    I can’t actually stop staring at her upper lip, it’s to fake, she didn’t need it that.

  51. Jay says:

    Meh, at this point I think if you invite a Kardashian to your wedding and there are cameras around, this might happen. Now if she had shown up in a floor length white gown…

  52. Jaded says:

    Tacky, tacky, tacky and selfish. Never upstage the bride.

  53. Bella says:

    A lot of people are saying “Well if the bride is ok with it.” What is she supposed to say?? I am sure the bride is not happy with it, as Kendall really did upstage her. It is super tacky and not very nice. As far Bella goes, I like her dress and thinks she looks beautiful.

    • MelOn says:

      I think we’re saying it because hey, she knows the devil she’s dealing with, she knew what she was getting.

  54. Mad says:

    As a bisexual woman, I would be over the moon if Kendall jenner turned up to my wedding wearing this. A few of my friends are still in good enough shape to pull something like this off, so more power to them if they wanted to (not their style though). Frankly if I didn’t feel comfortable in my own skin and with my husband, I wouldn’t be getting married in tbe first place. Maybe some women feel like it’s ‘their day,’ but having 50 plus people’s attention on me sounds like a nightmare.

  55. Kaykay says:

    Personally, I don’t like it – to wear myself that is.

    If it’s on someone else and it’s my rehearsal – I guess it depends on the friend.
    I have one family member I could see wearing it, it’s kind of her style, but if it was on someone else with a different style in general, I would be like, “what the heck?”.

    Our wedding was black tie, but I have a dear friend who is a bit alternative/eccentric and he said he didn’t have a tuxedo, so I told him to just come as himself and be creative. So he came in a grey jacket, with grey shorts, and a huge colorful bowtie he made himself, and sneakers. He looked so great. I loved it.

    Isn’t she a lesbian btw?
    Why I say this is because I can see how she is dressing like this just for fun, and not to make all the guys drool after her.

    • Fortuona says:

      This is the woman who people have been saying she has been sleeping with for years

      None of the guests brought a date the all went as a big crew with their mates . Hailey did not bring Justin,Bella did not bring her guy ,Kendall did not bring DBook and Jesse Jo did not bring Yungblud

  56. ME says:

    Even if the bride said it was ok…this means Kendall knew it wasn’t something considered appropriate for a wedding reception. She had to get “permission” to wear it. Like, come on Kendall, if you have to ask, then you should know it’s probably not ok. It looks cheap and tacky. Of all the dresses she could have worn…this family LOVES attention.

  57. Annetommy says:

    I can’t think of a single occasion that it *would* be appropriate for. It’s vile.

  58. Same says:

    If you have to ASK the bride , you already know that shit is inappropriate. And to then pretend the bride was ok with it …. No, she just wasn’t assertive enough to tell you to stay home .

  59. Veronica S. says:

    It’s tacky. The design is unflattering on a good day, but it’s also designed to get attention. That’s fine at a club or a party where you can be the center of attention. It’s less so when it’s another couple’s big day. Even if she cleared it with the bride, like…it’s tacky to even ask that, right? The fact that you have to ask means you know it’s inappropriate.

  60. Tasha says:

    Is it on backwards?

  61. SMS says:

    Totally inappropriate dress for any occasion and, while the bride was okay with it, I wonder what her parents and grandparents thought, not to mention the groom’s parents and grandparents.

  62. Suzybontime says:

    Everything about this family is vulgar… And low class. My two cents.

  63. Otaku fairy says:

    It’s funny that people assume the bride just must have secretly been offended, but wasn’t assertive enough to say no when asked directly. I’ll take her at her word for it. Judging by her inner circle, it’s not hard to believe she’s not the kind of woman who has very strong negative opinions about that kind of thing anyway. She may have even been in on the attention it would get. As for parents/grandparents- not their event, not their dress code. Harry Styles or Lil Nas X probably would have worn the hell out of this though, and actually made it more interesting.

  64. Normades says:

    If she felt the need to ask the bride for approval before wearing it, that means she knew it was sketchy and inappropriate before hand.

  65. Lucille says:

    I’m trying to think of an occasion this dress is actually appropriate for. I can only think of the bedroom and a sex video shoot. Wearing appropriate clothes is also a sign of good behavior. Gen Z never heard of this concept it seems. The amount of thorax bones visible in those pics is worrisome as well.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      Ted Bundy wore suits. That female doctor from a few years ago who got exposed for performing female genital mutilation procedures was a very classy looking, modestly dressed woman. Modesty or lack thereof really doesn’t tell us anything about whether or not a person is truly good, decent, or bad, or what behaviors they’re actually up to.

  66. canichangemyname says:

    I mean, it’s not something I’d wear to a wedding reception – even if I had the body for it lol. But invite a Kardashian/Jenner, get a Kardashian/Jenner.
