Beaming Kim Kardashian sends clear message on first night out since Kanye divorce filing

Days after taking the first official step to ending her marriage, media-savvy Kim carefully managed her reappearance on the public stage, smiling and surrounded by her most loyal group of friends – minus her wedding ring.

There was nothing left to chance about Kim Kardashian’s dazzling return to the public eye.

The newly single reality superstar looked absolutely incredible as she was photographed on Tuesday, the first time she had been seen by fans since filing for divorce from husband Kanye West.

Days after taking the first official step to ending her marriage, media-savvy Kim had never looked better as she carefully managed her reappearance on the public stage.

Dressed to stand out in a clingy neon green dress that highlighted her famous curves, the beaming 40-year-old was surrounded by a fawning group of her most loyal companions as she headed out for sushi at a Beverly Hills hotspot.

Her hair styled in waves and skin fully made up, Kim wore a £688 pair of heels by The Attico, along with a stylishly layered pair of necklaces and a hefty gold ring.

One accessory notably absent was her wedding ring, which she ditched prior to filing to end her seven-year marriage.

With red carpet events cancelled due to Covid regulations, Kim instead was snapped at Matsuhisa after an all day photoshoot at Milk Studios.

Helpfully seated in clear view of the paparazzi documenting her every movement, she beamed throughout the pricey dinner.

The popular restaurant is the original eatery owned by Nobu Matsuhisa, the chef also behind the Nobu chain. Long popular with the A-list crowd, it is a place to see and be seen for Los Angeles elite.

Here she was warmly greeted by friends including Jennifer Meyer and stylist Maeve Reilly, who were already dining.

At her side were her sister Kourtney and longtime best friend La La Anthony, former assistant Stephanie Shepherd, and Jonathan ‘FoodGod’ Cheban, who has never once wavered from his role as chief Kim cheerleader.

A smiling, animated Kim made it clear she was not mourning the huge changes to her personal life as she laughed with her gang and pouted for smiling selfies during the friendly celebratory-style dinner.

At one point she greeted a fan warmly – hairystlist Arrogant_tae123 who has 2.1million Insta followers – and the two posed up together with LaLa.

Since news broke of the divorce filing, Kim has been posting to social media, celebrating a friend’s birthday teasing her mum Kris Jenner and listening to breakup songs.

But the three times married Keeping Up With Kardashians star saved showing her face until now.

Prior to her first night out as a single woman, her ex Kanye was spotted out without his ring for the first time since their divorce went public.

The rapper turned designer was seen in a tracksuit as he stopped by the Yeezy Christian Academy on Monday afternoon.
