Kim Kardashian wore a ‘bandage dress’ to the Breakthrough Prize event: hot or not?

Here are some photos from the 10th Annual Breakthrough Prize Ceremony at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles. This event was as well-attended as the Oscars, I swear. Kim Kardashian got a lot of attention for wearing this 2024 version of the “bandage dress.” The old version was Herve Leger, but I haven’t seen an ID for this one. Kim occasionally does “wet look” hair and I hate to admit it, but she sort of pulls it off. I mean, she looks like a plastic Barbie doll left in the pool, but she also just looks pulled-together and pretty. Her date was her momager Kris Jenner.

Elon Musk was there. He looked like a needy a–hole begging for attention. Growing up, I used to think being a billionaire must be so cool. If anything, Musk shows everyone that you can have more money than God and still be the biggest f–king loser.

Brie Larson wore Chanel – she has this thing where she’ll wear something interesting or offbeat, but she somehow makes it look so boring.

Jessica Chastain looks sort of like a game-show hostess but I love the color.

Venus Williams is a literal GODDESS and she was my pick for best dressed of the event.

Last people: Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, Katy wore Coperni. I swear, about five other women wore versions of this dress. Michelle Yeoh kept it simple and elegant; Glenn Close wore a shiny jumpsuit; and I kind of like this version of Maria Sharapova, where she has dark hair and looks like hell.

    Kim looks good, apart from the hair.

    Venus looks great! That colour is amazing on her.

    • Kokiri says:

      I’m not sure “good” is how she looks, when it’s all plastic & molded & snugged in there within an inch of her life.
      Nothing about her is real, so what looks good?

      Particularly in contrast to Meghan, her polo look, for example, who is radiant. Kim could have had that, she was a beautiful woman before she changed everything about herself.

      Like Megan Fox, it’s just sad at this point.

      • Eurydice says:

        The molded plastic can’t extend to the hands – they give away age. Meghan’s a beautiful woman, but her radiance comes from her expressions and connections with others. Kim will always be “Look at my outfit.””

      • ClaireB says:

        She must have done something to her face if she’s trying so hard to hide it. And the amount of filler in her hands is disgusting. They look bloated.

    • Josephine says:

      I don’t think I will ever find the dead-eye and open mouth look attractive. Beauty is in being alive and healthy and gracious and comfortable.

      But i can’t believe that the there is no video here of Kim’s waddle in that dress. To get to the photo spot, she literally waddled over. Not sure what was wrong with the dress but I burst out laughing. It’s a good reminder of just how silly all of this is.

    • Mimi says:

      Kim is looking like a cross between wrestler Chyna (rest in peace) and Pricilla Presley (when she was tinkering with fillers but right before she had the mishap with the doctor who put literal industrial silicone in her face). She needs to stop like 5 procedures ago.

      • BeanieBean says:

        OMG, I said almost exactly the same thing below! I really need to learn to read through all the comments before commenting. But, seriously, who’d a thunk it, Kim K ended up looking like Priscilla P????

    • pollyv says:

      I know everyone thinks Chris Appleton is some kind of hair god but honestly, I don’t like Kim’s hair here and there are other times I think he does her dirty but they all pretend it’s fabulous.

  2. LolaB says:

    Elon’s pants are a different color than his jacket.

  3. Seraphina says:

    I like Kim’s dress, but I really thought that was Monica Bellucci (sorry Monica). And why does her mom have to be on her side like a harbinger of death????
    Venus looked great, wonderful color. And Katy’s dress is cute, but the bust would have looked better if it were higher.

    • Roo says:

      “Harbinger of death”. Brilliant!

      Venus looks gorgeous, and I hope Jessica is not ill.

    • Kreama says:

      @seraphina haha harbinger of death. Kim looks like Kris in that picture and Kris looks … spooky. I personally hate how they normalize cosmetic surgery.

  4. equality says:

    Katy’s dress looks like it could stand up without her.

  5. Pomski says:

    Kim looks very good and it’s always nice to see her with evil Geppetto. Is it me or has Kim’s face become more oblong?

    • morgfunk says:

      IMHO she finally had a facelift that she totally didn’t need. She looks like a wax figure now. It’s why she’s hiding her hairline and ears. I have a weird sixth sense for this ish. I don’t even watch their dumb show, I can just tell. One of my many useless worthless talents. Kind of satisfying though lol.

    • kelleybelle says:

      Yes, more facial work. She’s addicted.

  6. sevenblue says:

    Kim looks like a sea creature. I never understood wet hair fashion, it seems weird to me if you are not posing near some ocean or something. My fav is also Venus. She looks really good in pink.

  7. North of Boston says:

    I thought that JC was that No Demo Reno person. Its not just her hair, its the expression here as well

  8. Nanea says:

    I still don’t get why all those random people were there.

    The Breakthrough prizes are awarded to researchers for their breakthrough work in life sciences, e.g. yesterday for work helping to better treat Parkinson’s or for progress in the field of neurogenetics, or in maths and fundamental physics.

    That said, I agree with Kaiser, Venus was the best dressed.

  9. Grey says:

    I don’t know if I just woke up too early or what, but this version of Kim barely looks like Kim at this point.

    • SarahCS says:

      That was my first reaction. Not sure if it’s the latest new face or just the make-up/styling but that’s not obviously Kim to me.

    • Katy says:

      Pretty soon her and Megan Fox and going to be fully interchangeable. One of them should send a cease and desist (using the same surgeon as me) to the other.

    • Tiffany:) says:

      Her face looks so alien, and yet, so much like her mom’s (same surgeon?).

      I think the hair in the face is to distract from more tweeks to her face.

    • LeaTheFrench says:

      My first thought as well – I could barely recognise her! I think it’s the shape of her face – it looks rounder / puffier, not sure what is going on here. She pulled off the “wet haïr” look at the Met Gala years ago, with the Mugler corset – here I think this is largely a fail. Her hair looks thin and raty and unkempt – when it’s normally once of her best features…

      • HuffnPuff says:

        I think her lips must be numb. She looks like she’s trying to do her signature “oh” mouth but can’t get the lips to cooperate. The whole look is bad. Maybe she’s starting that down slide that happens to celebs who overdo the plastic surgery.

    • lucy2 says:

      She looks so different. If you’d told me she, her mom, and Musk were wax figures from Madame Tussaud’s, I’d have believed you.

      Venus looks stunning!!!

  10. ML says:

    Venus and Michelle Yeoh are my best dressed. I love how Venus is wearing that pink dress, and I love that Michelle showed up in a well-tailored suit.

    What is going on with Kim’s hands? They look like they’re a different color and texture than the rest of her.

    • Eurydice says:

      Those are the normal hands of a 43-year old woman. The question is what’s going on with the rest of her.

      • ClaireB says:

        Those hands don’t look normal to me. They look like she got a whole bunch of filler in them so they don’t look 43 years old.

      • Eurydice says:

        @ClaireB – if that’s what she was going for, then it wasn’t very successful. To me, they still look like the pampered hands of a woman in her early 40’s.

      • ML says:

        Venus is her age. Venus spent years in the sun playing tennis and she has Sjogren’s, but her hands look healthier than Kim’s. Jessica Chastain is slightly older than Kim, but her fingers look better in that picture than Kim’s. Kim’s hands are veiny, her fingers look sort of knobby, her hands are lighter than the rest of her skin and they’re a bit “greyish-pink” compared to the rest of her body. It’s as if they were transplanted onto her wrists. Is she unhealthy?

  11. mellie says:

    Fake hair, nose, eyes, lips, cheek bones, chin, boobs, butt, tan…lipo everywhere, botox everywhere I’m sure. Professional makeup job and shapewear sucking in whatever hasn’t been sucked out…yeah, she looks great!

  12. Bella says:

    They all look really good! My favorites are Brie, Michelle, Venus and Katy.

  13. CityGirl says:

    Kim’s face looks different to me. Can’t decide what exactly it is, but it looks different.
    Venus is Stunning in that dress!

  14. JoanCallamezzo says:

    I’m surprised Kris was there I’m wondering what her connections to Diddy are.

  15. Elle says:

    While I don’t care for Kim’s dress myself, I know it is her brand and she look greats in white, but the hair ruins it. She looks like she just got out of a dirty lake that had some traces of oil and algae in it and also, she needs a trim. Imagine this with clean looking non stringy hair, two inches off, and maybe even styled with the slightest amount of volume vs heavy product for the wet look that looks glued down. I think that would be a vast improvement.

  16. Chantal1 says:

    Kim looks good (except for the hair). I don’t remember her face being this long but I also don’t follow them so maybe I missed some things.

    Michelle Yeoh rarely disappoints.

    Venus looks great! I really admire her for continuing her tennis career despite having Sjogrens Syndrome.

    I didn’t recognize Maria Sharapova and had to go back to look bc I was so used to seeing her with blond hair. The dress itself isn’t that bad but the overall look plus accessories doesn’t do much.

    • Smoothoperator says:

      with no ill intent, she looks like recently enhanced and the hairdo is to cover as much as possible ¿? Also, she proves the limits of ozempic, I see her entropy growing

  17. tealily says:

    Kim looks like she’s cosplaying as Megan Fox for this one.

  18. KMAC says:

    What in the hell did she do to her face!? 😭 her nose job is horrid. She now looks like old Chloe because her (Chole) nose job was horrid as well. 🤦🏻‍♀️

    “Growing up, I used to think being a billionaire must be so cool. If anything, Musk shows everyone that you can have more money than God and still be the biggest f–king loser.”

    These 2 sentences will live rent free in my head for months, thank you, Kaiser.

    The thing is, most of us grow up thinking “boy would it be cool to be a billionaire.” And some truly rich people ARE cool. Like Keanu. And Bruce Wayne. But NOT Elon. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Mina_Esq says:

    I hope this means that bandage dresses are making a comeback! I LOVED my bandage dresses. I always felt so hot in them.

  21. LaurenAPMT says:

    Kim’s dress looks like wrapped layers of toilet paper

  22. BeanieBean says:

    Venus was by far the most elegant, most classy, most lovely of the evening!!

    Kim & her mother both illustrate the necessity to learn to stop fussing with your face. They both should have stopped a couple-three surgeries ago. Kris’ left eye has turned & is gravitating up her face; while Kim somehow looks like Priscilla Presley after a half dozen surgeries. How did that happen??

  23. morgfunk says:

    I just wanted to say IMHO she for sure had a facelift. That she didn’t need. Not that I care! But she totally did. That’s all folks!

  24. Gisby says:

    Holy carp, what has Kim done to her face? The eyes look OK, though they are mostly painted on, but the lower half of her face looks swollen and slack, with a suddenly immense jaw and loose, flabby lips. Does she go to Michael Jackson’s plastic surgeon? I’m not a fan, but there was a space of time where she was actually pretty.
