Kim Kardashian’s most memorable looks are, of course, sexy. How could she show off her signature style without baring, at the very least, a slip of skin? It’s so obvious that Kim feels most comfortable when jaws are dropping to the floor and she’s managing to shock the press, the paparazzi, or fellow celebrities.
What we love most is when she pulls this off tastefully, choosing well-tailored pieces that flatter her famous curves or even her baby bump. This year alone, we saw 10 such outfits from Mrs. Karadashian-West. She set trends in motion when she was on the street and delightfully surprised us in vintage silhouettes on the red carpet. Read on for a roundup of ensembles designed by Galliano, Olivier Rousteing at Balmain, and Givenchy, but made iconic thanks to Kim’s confidence when wearing them.
1. Kim’s Met Gala Dress
2. Her Cocktail Dress For the Vogue Festival
3. Her Stunning White Gown
Kim and Kanye attended the opera in Rome as part of an event thrown by Valentino. Instead of showing up in the label, though, Kim chose this sweeping Vivienne Westwood number right around the time she and Kanye were celebrating their wedding anniversary. We doubt the white shade was a coincidence.
4. Kim’s Sexy Vintage Mini
Kim went for the just-out-of-the-shower look at the 2016 VMAs, where she stood by Kanye’s side in a vintage Galliano dress she’d found in the back of her closet. We’re glad she chose to bring back this ruched piece, smartly accessorizing with pendant necklaces and strappy sandals.
5. Kim’s Mommy-and-Me Look
Kim and North attended Kanye’s first show at Madison Square Garden ahead of Fashion Week. He was kicking off his Life of Pablo tour, so his girls chose very special matching Vetements dresses for the occasion.
6. Kim’s Velvet Street Style Moment
7. Her Right-Off-the-Runway Balmain Dress
8. Kim’s Balenciaga Trench and Boots
Kim was the only celebrity who showed up to sit front row at Balenciaga’s Spring 2017 runway show. She set the tone for the collection that was about to debut, a lineup of looks that highlighted fetishism, many complete with thigh-high boots like Kim’s pair. We love that she left things effortless in a cinched trench coat. She even went makeup free.
9. Kim’s Lace and Lingerie
Kim showed us just how delicate and feminine lace and lingerie can be at the Givenchy Spring 2017 runway show. It was her final appearance at Paris Fashion Week and a nod to some of her favorite trends as she exposed her shoulders and wore PVC shoes.
