Kim Kardashian debuted new silver-blonde hair at NYFW: love it or hate it?

Kim Kardashian leaves Tom Ford show for dinner at Milo's

What’s orange and silver and latex all over? Kim Kardashian. Kim is in New York for NY Fashion Week, in what will be her first fashion week appearance since Paris Fashion Week almost one year ago, where she was held at gunpoint and robbed at her hotel/apartment after returning from a fashion week event. Kim stepped out last night for the Tom Ford show, and then she went to dinner. Kanye was not with her, and as it turns out, the new Yeezy line isn’t even showing at NYFW this year.

Anyway, Kim is doing NYFW this season, so she wanted a new look! Hair stylist Chris Appleton gave her this Khaleesi look, with long silver-blonde hair. That’s actually the only reference point I have for this – the “Khaleesi wig” that Emilia Clarke uses on Game of Thrones. The way Kim was Snapchatting about this, it really is a dye job, not a wig though. Do you believe that? I guess I do. I think the silvery blonde would work better if Kim was less orange. Right? As for the latex dress, it’s by LaQuan Smith.

    Oh lord. This look is awful

  2. Miss Kittles says:

    How come when I wear my (blonde) hair like that to work it’s unprofessional? Lol
    I didn’t realize the wet look was in. I’ll have to show my boss …. thanks kimmy

  3. STRIPE says:

    People who know the fashion business better than I do: is it odd that she isn’t wearing Tom Ford for this? I seem to recall that celebs going to big shows tend to wear that designers clothes, but I could be wrong.

    • KatieBo says:

      Check the Tag ID’d this as Tom Ford as have a few other fashion sites. I believe it is.

    • Sassenach says:

      Yes it’s strange. Everyone from Ciara to Cindy Crawford who attended the Tom Ford show was dressed in Tom Ford. BTW Check the tag has her dressed ID’d correctly as Labuan Smith not Tom. The fact that she was wore this ugly dominatrix get up and thought it was ok is probably one of the main reasons he didn’t dress her.

  4. minx says:

    Why do that to your hair? Wear a wig. She looks vacant as always.

    • Miss Kittles says:

      I’m pretty sure that is a wig

      • Kitten says:

        I think it’s extensions.
        If you look right below her shoulders, you can see shorter strands which is where her real hair is, blended into longer strands (the extensions). So I think she dyed her real hair silver and added silver extensions to it.

        I could be wrong though. Wouldn’t be the first time I was conned by these fools.

      • bros says:

        lol to kitten. don’t think too hard on it Kitten. investing brain cells in these idiots is not worth it.

      • GiBee says:

        Why would you get such a cheap-looking wig though?!

      • Pandy says:

        Totally extensions. Either that, or she broke a lot of hair off! She looks like a halloween order on Fredericks of Hollywood.

      • AnnaKist says:

        I’m with the “Extensions” brigade. Her own hair is not that long, and as Kitten said, you can see the short hair, which is more likely her own, which has been bleached and that silvery colour layered over. Such severe bleaching on dark hair is very damaging. I wonder what condition her real hair is in now. She’s been wearing the Cher wig for how long? And now the stripping of her natural colour. Surely that can’t be too good for one’s own hair? Anyway, this look is awful, but she won’t keep it for long.

    • Loopy says:

      Is it a proper dye job though, i tend to think there must be some colour spray available for these celebs, because in two days again you see them back to their jet black hair? That would be brutal to do that all the time.

    • Nancy says:

      Her hair is jet black. That is totally a wig. She would have had to strip out all of the color which destroys your hair, no way is it real. Little wannabe Kylie is teaching the aging Kim how it rolls, put on a wig, she does it all the time.

      • Happy21 says:

        YES!! That shade would have taken ages to accomplish from her regular hair colour and if it was done (is that even possible) in one sitting, her hair would be fried! However, maybe she did and she’s still got the hair mask in it which is why she opted for the greasy/wet look! LOL!

      • AnnaKist says:

        Despite my comment above, Nancy, I’m also on board with the wig thing. After all, didn’t Kylie invent wigs?

  5. Mike says:

    Kinda clashes with her orange skin

    • Nanny to the Rescue says:

      ITA. There’s a lot of both pale and dark complexions that can rock silver hair. Orange isn’t one of them.

      Plus, those are some bad quality extensions.

      Did she have another surgery done to her face? She looks different. Again.

    • Janetdr says:

      That’s the thing, I don’t think any shade of blonde looks good with that shade of orange, but surely some kind of pale hair + real skin tone could be managed well. This is a hideous look!

  6. Snowflake says:

    Ermmm, something nice. Umm, that’s nice, she changed her wig. There, I did it!

  7. D says:

    Has anyone commenting here ever worn a latex dress? I’m curious if a dress like that is as uncomfortable, warm and sweaty as I think it is.

    • swak says:

      I’ll tell you what, no matter the temperature I would be sweating within 10 seconds of putting it on . It’s got to be warm and sweaty as latex doesn’t breathe.

    • Megan says:

      I’m wondering how you get it on and off. Do you need a few friends to shove you in and pull you out?

      • Alexandria says:

        That’s what siblings are for. 😁Why do you think they keep adding to their klan? All of them seem to enjoy squeezing big asses into tight dresses, never mind latex.

      • GiBee says:

        People used to use talcum powder to help, but I find the easiest way is to put on a good moisturizer to reduce friction.

      • swak says:

        Shades of the Friends episode where Ross has on tight leather pants and can’t get them back up after going to the bathroom (IIRC).

      • holly hobby says:

        Yup my first thought was that episode of Ross and his leather pants. He made a paste inside the pants. :p

    • GiBee says:

      They’re very hot, yes, but the worst thing is your sweat gets trapped. My sweat isn’t ususally stinky – I drink tonnes of water and my diet is pretty clean. But 30 mins in a latex dress and I absolutely stink.

      • D says:

        @GiBee, That does not sound like a good time, I think I’ll pass on the latex dress. Wearing high heels is as much as I’m willing to suffer for fashion:)

    • Happy21 says:

      Chafing. That’s all I got!

  8. nicegirl says:

    Trying to give the rest of us #hairbesties a run, Kim!

    I don’t full on hate the hair, but the latex dress is giving me the sweats already.

  9. Keaton says:

    I think it’s kind of striking.

  10. M. says:

    She looks like she has jaundice

  11. Beth says:

    Good grief! Why do people do this?

  12. Imo says:

    They usually change hair colors when they have done something new surgically to their faces….

    • Hella says:

      Ah ha! I think you are right. There is something different about her, again, but it is hard to pinpoint with the distracting hair.

  13. Kitten says:

    NO. The Trumpanzee skin tone is just bad and while I normally love silver hair, it simply doesn’t work on her.

    Lastly, will she EVER stop messing with her face? It doesn’t look good at all.

    • jugil1 says:

      @ Kitten, yes! Again, what happened to her “tan” that people were so eager to try to make everyone believe on previous posts?? LOL!

    • tracking says:

      I love the silver hair trend too. I think the contrast with her natural olive skin tone could work, with a shorter more polished rather than long and scraggly ‘do.

      • Kitten says:

        Yes absolutely it’s the length and style of her hair that is bugging me. Also agree that silver hair usually looks BEST on darker skin tones IMO. On lighter skin tones it tends to look washed out.

      • AnnaKist says:

        My best friend (a hairdresser) was telling me how her eldest daughter shaved her hair, and now has kind of like a Pink or Mel B style, but had kept the silvery-grey colour she’d been wearing for a few months. She showed me a photo, and I must admit. I was surprised to like it. She has light olive skin, her makeup wasn’t overpowering and it looks really good on her. There was another girl in the photo, and I asked if that was her younger daughter. It was, but she looks like a totally different person. This daughter and my daughter often got mistaken for twins. Even her grandson got them confused, and would cry for my daughter to pick him up, thinking she was his Aunty! This daughter also cut off her very long, black hair so it now just grazes her shoulders, and also has this silvery colour. The both look good, I had to say, although their mum is still not sure.

      • GMonkey says:

        Yes, true olive skin looks awesome with silver hair because olive has both warm and cool tones.

        My grandmother had olive skin and silver hair. She was beautiful. She looked like the female Omar Sharif.

  14. Shijel says:

    Those are some comically ratty extensions she’s wearing. Or a god-awful cut if it’s a wig.

  15. Elle says:

    She should have opted for wig, her hair looks fried and they tried to hide that with the wet look. I dig her latex tho.

  16. Flipper says:


  17. Chaine says:

    It’s not really new, is it? I feel as if I have seen this color, or something very similar, on her before. Plus, the styling is so greasy looking.

  18. Bobbymilly says:

    She looks like trash

  19. HK9 says:

    Love the dress and shoes but whatever look they were going for with the hair they missed, it just looks dirty and unwashed. (If that’s a wig, she needs to call Wendy Williams and get a referral for a ‘wigologist’ to help her out.)

  20. Jayna says:

    It’s a wig. Kim doesn’t bleach her dark hair down to that level, when she won’t keep it more than a few weeks. It’s too destroying on the hair. But her wigs are always good. I will give her that.

  21. Lightpurple says:

    I am laughing so hard! And it looks DIRTY!

  22. KatieBo says:

    Holy smokes the comments on here seem needlessly cruel. It’s not my favourite look but it”s certainly not the worst. It’s fashion week- you’re supposed to play around a little bit. I will agree that her tan is not at it’s best. If it was better I think this whole look would have been more successful.

  23. Wow says:

    I think it fits her perfectly. The only other celebs I’ve seen dye their hair this color have been assholes; Ryan Lochte and I believe Raven Simone. So she fits right in.

  24. Tim H says:

    Are we supposed to find this “hot”? Normally a curvy women in latex would be sexy as hell… But she just tries way too hard and it’s no longer interesting. And what is happening with her face? She doesn’t look good.

  25. Katherine says:

    Dislike the tan job but like the hair. It’s real cause you can tell her shorter shoulder length real hair from extensions.

  26. Krissy says:

    I like the silver hair but would have looked soooo much better without the stringy extensions and oompa loompa spray tan. Kimmy always seems to miss the mark :/

  27. Linda says:

    I can’t get past the poor guy holding her umbrella for her. Lol

  28. HelloThere says:

    Why didn’t Celebitchy cover once of her most recent Instagram photos of her n2ked in the tree? At least snake individuals don’t have to get naked to get attention!!!

    • Olive says:

      Kylie recently posed basically topless and Celebitchy didn’t cover that either. Too many naked Kardashians/Jenners making headlines.

      Come on now, Taylor would love to be able to get that attention too, but she has the sex appeal of a wet bag of flour.

    • me says:

      @ HellowThere

      I was wondering that too! Kim naked in a tree got zero attention here but her new hair color gets it’s own story. I think people have seen her naked so many times that it’s just “yawnnnn” at this point. She can’t get attention doing that anymore…no one in that family can.

  29. QueenElisabeth says:

    rolled in Doritos and rolled out the door!

  30. detritus says:

    So Kylie isn’t the in Agulera circa Dirty lover in the family. That’s some dirty Christina hair.

  31. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    Horrid. Perhaps the worst fashion mistake she has ever made, and that says a lot.

    It really contrasts with her Oompah Loompah spray tan.


  32. Laur says:

    I hate myself but I actually like it… I think it is her real hair cos on another site later on in the evening she takes the extensions out and it’s shoulder length – if it was all a wig you’d just get a long wig right? Either way it’s crazy that she would do this to her hair unless she keeps it for months – SO MUCH processing and bleaching. However if it is real, props to her hair dresser for going from black to silver, that must’ve taken some work!

    The dress on the other hand I have no words for. Another site showed her side-on and it really is ridiculous, it’s like she shoved a trifle down the back of her pants or something, she really needs to sort her fake bum out. I’m jealous of people with naturally big, curvy bums as mines pretty small, but hers is ridiculous.

  33. amp122076 says:

    How in the world does her hair not fall out from all the color processing?

  34. Ain'tNoTelling says:

    I know her wig guy, that’s a wig.

  35. cake says:

    Pret-TY sure that’s a wig, that’s all I got on this…

  36. poop says:

    To be clear, she’s doing the “wet hair” look. Say what you want, but Kim can afford to get “dead” hair treated. It’s not fried hair.

  37. Jag says:

    It makes her look so orange. I don’t like it.

    She usually changes her hair color when she gets something done to her face. What do we think she did this time?

  38. MiniMii says:

    She looks like a geriatric Oompa Loompa that’s gone goth.

  39. Punkypuss says:

    Hate to say it but that is her hair with terrible cheap extensions and yes you can strip dark hair to white blonde (I am a hairdresser and have done it to myself) it takes many hours some times multiple sessions over days (to minimise damage to hair but you still end up destroying so much of it) I honestly try to talk people out of it and flat out refuse the job if they do not heed my warnings as I do not want my name to someone looking terrible.

  40. raincoaster says:

    She never, ever changes her makeup, no matter what her hair colour. Come to think of it, she never, ever lays off the spray tan either. Neither orange nor the browns she wears on her face work with silver.

    • Snowflake says:

      Yeah, that’s really it. Would look much better without the orange color and with better makeup shades

  41. PMNichols says:

    I actually think if she kept her real hair and it was this color it wouldn’t look too bad. I do not understand the extension obsession. She is pretty, but always ruins it. It just confuses me that she never gets it right.

    • Ramona Q. says:

      Yes, this would look better without the obvious extensions. And if she flipped her head over to give herself a little volume and a side part.

  42. Lou says:


  43. Ozogirl says:

    She has the worst style.
