Kim Kardashian in Versace at the Bazaar ‘Icons’ event: struggling or fabulous?

Kim Kardashian poses at the Harper's Bazaar Celebration of 'ICONS By Carine Roitfeld'

Kim Kardashian went blonde last week, just ahead of her big, splashy return to New York Fashion Week. For several years, Kim was a constant figure at NYFWs and at Paris Fashion Weeks. She even went to London Fashion Weeks a few times. Some wondered if Kim would ever return to a fashion week again after she was assaulted and robbed last year in Paris. Paparazzi in particular were lamenting the idea that Kim – one of their favorite subjects – would never return and nothing would ever be the same. Kim has returned! To New York, at least. I bet she isn’t planning on going to Paris anytime soon. Kim has been doing NYFW events with her sister Kendall and with their mom, Kris Jenner. Kanye isn’t showing at NYFW this year, and he’s been photographed in LA – TMZ says that Kanye even went to the movies while Kim was out in New York, being “fashionable.”

Anyway, please enjoy all of these photos of Kim and her blonde hair, which is possibly a wig. In some photos, it does look very wiggy, but in other photos, I’m almost believing that it’s her real hair. The photos of Kim in gold are from the Bazaar ICONS event several nights ago – that dress is apparently vintage Versace, which… eh. It doesn’t fit her! It would have been a really solid look for her if it was properly tailored. She also looked rather lovely in a black ensemble at the Alexander Wang party, and then the paps got some good street-style photos of Kim wearing a vintage Miu Miu fanny pack. For real. Did you know that fanny packs are making a high-fashion comeback? It’s true.

Meanwhile, Kim spoke out about all of last week’s reporting on her surrogate. Kim told E! News: “I’ve definitely seen a lot of things, we’ve never confirmed anything. So, I think when we’re ready to talk about it we will, and I think it’s super invasive when people are just… So many details out there, and like I’ve never heard this, I’ve never heard this. Like whatever. We have not confirmed it, and that’s that. I’ll let you know when we’re ready.” I understand, but let’s be real – those stories didn’t come out of thin air, and *someone* leaked information to TMZ and People Magazine simultaneously last week. Maybe it wasn’t Kim. It most likely wasn’t Kanye. But it was someone!

    Kim is always fabulous!

    • Heather says:

      I guess we’re going to ignore the sheer panty hose over a black thong look that she “rocked” this weekend? Anyone? She still looks trashy.

      • CTgirl says:

        She is always trashy looking. Weird, like the pantyhose and thong combo, or too tight/sheer/short. So try hard all the time.

      • downTime says:

        Why does recycle high fashion into frederick’s of hollywood? Is it just the physical proportions? It’ s not like curves can’t wear fashion, but she just has this reverse midas touch IMO.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      She’s too damn orange. It’s really awful against the hair. Also, too bad she can’t undo the last rhinoplasty. It’s a bridge too far.

      • Blair Warner says:

        Exactly – the white hair as a distraction is a dead giveaway that she’s done her nose, yet again!

    • Tim H says:

      Fabulous outfits on someone else, maybe. What the hell is wrong with her face? She’s freaking me out. Her skin looks rubbery and her facial proportions are all out of whack!

    • OOOHH says:

      Its a wig not her hair. She did a YouTube video with Desi Perkins where she actually lifted the sides of the wig to show that she braids the sides and back of her hair and only secures the wig on the centre top with an elastic band (standard for most wigs) that holds the back like a hair band.

    • Lisa says:

      Jeysus!!! The woman looks like they have lipo suctioned her to within an inch of her life! Gaaaaah! Look at her arms! They are all Tara Reid stomach looking!

  2. Babs says:

    I smell divorce.
    That golden dress is ugly and doesn’t fit her but I like the all-black look.

    • emma33 says:

      Me too…but only because it’s fairly obvious Kanye isn’t dressing her! Her style has improved SO much. None of these 3 outfits are dreadful, and she’s dressing more for her shape (i.e. low necklines instead of all those horrible high necklines she used to wear which made her boobs look massive, but not in a good way. I have a similar problem!)

    • Molly says:

      When she was on snapchat showing herself getting ready in the golden dress, she kept holding in her chest. I thought it was just unzipped. Nope. That’s apparently how it ended up being. Totally ill-fitting. She’s SUCH a waste of money and access. Why can’t she tailor things properly??

  3. Shambles says:

    As far as all three looks go, her style has been waaaaay, way worse. I think this is an improvement. Maybe because Kanye didn’t have a hand in picking any of this?

    • LadyMTL says:

      It is an improvement of sorts (aside from the shoes, I like the Alexander Wang outfit) but let’s be honest, we’re grading on one heck of a curve. No joke, when I looked really quickly at the header pic my first thought was that she was starting to morph into a clone of Donatella Versace.

      IMHO KK has always had a questionable fashion sense, it’s just now she can afford the really high-end stuff.

    • HadToChangeMyName says:

      it seems like Kanye has been hands-off on her fashion for almost a year now. Frankly, I think his ugly fashion (and obsession with what he though was “high” fashion) was part of his deteriorating mental state.

    • ysoto says:

      I also think this is improvement! So sad about what she has done to her face…but all in all she looks great!

      • Ankhel says:

        She might actually not win Fug Madness over at GoFugYourself this year. The age of wonders is not yet over!

  4. Lenn says:

    It has to be so exhausting to keep this up all these years. How many hours of her life in make-up chairs, hairdressers etc. Getting dressed an standing in front of a mirror fussing over the smallest details in your outfit. Every hair just where you want it. I just get tired thinking about it.

  5. grabbyhands says:

    Her hair loose is marginally less terrible than the flat ironed look she has in the first picture but regardless, this is a terrible color on her and she needs to stop doing it.

    I don’t know if there is truth to the rumor that every time she tries a drastic change in appearance it is to distract from recent work she’s had done on her face, but if that is the case, it failed this time, because all the color does is emphasize it.

    Unfortunately, the snap with the giant fanny pack makes her look like Ivanka Trump.

  6. Belle Epoch says:

    She’s not remotely attractive. When she was young, she was pretty. Now she has overshot her quest for perfection. Here’s a question: can perfection be bought? Are any true beauties created by surgeons? I don’t know the answer.

    • Babs says:

      What she did to her face is too bad but she is still very attractive, I think, even with that weird face.

    • minx says:

      Yes. And she’s vacant.

    • Steph says:

      Fan Bingbing? Or Eliza González

    • Kitten says:

      I’m feeling generous today so I’ll say that I do think she’s still attractive.
      Still, before all the surgeries she was drop-dead gorgeous IMO.

      Too bad…

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I don’t think she looks human anymore. She has entered the Uncanny Valley.

      I think perfection/beauty CAN be bought…you just have to know when to stop. I think if people want to adjust 1 thing about their face that they’d like to change, a face can handle that. However, if you start tweeking multiple things on one face, then you start to look very odd. Flattening out every bit of character in your face never turns out well.

      • Ankhel says:

        Absolutely. Look at Halle Berry and Megan Fox. Both went from pretty teens to gorgeous twentysomethings, thanks to a surgeon or two. Only Halle was smart enough to slow down though.

      • Flffgrrrlr says:

        I think she’s had something (recent) done to her jaw / chin? It looks much more chiselled and defined and the proportion of her face has changed. Maybe it’s similar thing to what Kylie had done?

  7. Gutterflower says:

    I find her terribly unattractive. So fake. She kinda looks like a youngish donatella in the gold dress.

  8. HK9 says:

    The men in the background in that last photo with their mouths open looking at her like she’s a lambchop are hilarious. It’s like close your mouth you’re going to start to drool! :-)

  9. Astrid says:

    I enjoy her for the crazy outfits and gossip, not as some forward thinking fashion icon. She has had so much work done, she doesn’t even look human anymore

    • Becki says:

      Totally THIS, has she ever had good fashion? NO! She certainly thinks she has, but I’m in it for the gossip, not the fashion with Kim.

  10. Tiffany27 says:

    I would like the color more if her hair were shorter. The color is giving me “bend the knee vibes” and I’m into it. Because it’s so long tho she looks like she’s trying to be a sexy witch for Halloween.

  11. mellie says:

    I love her complaints/comments about people being “super invasive”…really?!

  12. paranormalgirl says:

    I’m just a little tired of her.

    • L says:

      Funny, I’m a lot tired of her. And she’s been on the DL lately!

      • swak says:

        She’s not been on the DL over at DM. There have been many stories especially about her outfits. One was a see through and you could see bra and panties. If they (anyone) are going to dress in see through, they may as well not were it and just go in the panties and bra. So tired of that fashion.

      • Ankhel says:

        SWAK. I like you, but hush your mouth. PMK can probably read our lowest thoughts.

  13. D says:

    Her worst look during NYFW was when she just wore sheer pantyhose and a leather bandeau , she looked ridiculous…as usual.

  14. Shijel says:

    I really wish she had her backside deflated or something. Clothes and styles that would otherwise fit her all look ill-fitting and comical on her because of that sextuple cheese burger ass. Also, the blond hair either needs to go or reshaded. This cool, ashy tone would suit someone with a cooler skin undertone.

  15. Carol says:

    I think she finally looks good. Her outfits fit her very nicely and I love her white skirt look.

  16. JeanGrey says:

    All this work she did looking presentable she ruined when she LITERALLY wore a pair of black pantyhose over a black thong panty and a crop top out in public. It was tacky and gross and the ugliest thing I have ever seen her in, and that’s saying A LOT!

    • Aurelia says:

      As for the pantyhose, thong, bandeau triumvirate , it sounds like something Prince would wear. Now Prince of course could get away with it.

      The final photo where she has her white whitchy hair flowing, she looks like a z-lister. Cheap tan to boot.

  17. Cleo says:

    Her hair is awful but her style choices are getting somewhat better at times…

  18. Vizia says:


  19. Erica_V says:

    Struggling. That dress doesn’t fit and the blonde is the wrong tone. That’s a Kylie look.

    I wonder what she sees when she looks in the mirror. The never ending facial enhancements are really starting to catch up with her but it’s almost like she’s coming back around to her original face.

  20. I think she’s beautiful and I like the color on her. At first I thought she was wigging it, but I noticed on her Instagram story that her roots are starting to show. When she first had it done, there were no roots, now you can see the dark roots. Too much upkeep for that look when you’ve got hair as dark as Kim’s.

  21. Jaii says:

    In the second photo i think (the one in the black fix jacket) her face really reminds me of Terri Hatcher from desperate housewives, but in the photo below that in glasses she looks like Ivanka. it’s a pity bcos old Kim was truly beautiful .

    • Penelope says:


      Her original face is long gone now and instead she has this scary, long, plastic one. She was a true, natural beauty before she had all this unnecessary work done. What a shame.

  22. Deana says:

    She looks like a camel. She was a pretty young woman once.

  23. Nanny to the Rescue says:

    There’s some Cersei in her face on pic #1.

  24. Chaine says:

    She lurches ever close to resembling an alien being.

  25. We should dedicate a post on wigs so that all of celebitchy knows what to look for lol. It’s a wig. It’s always a wig. The last time she actually died her hair was after North was born. A great wig maker is priceless! It takes a lot of work to take a wig and pluck all the hairs etc. The best lace front wigs even have some baby hairs. U get your hair braided first so the wig lays flat and it’s super tight. Black women have perfected and been rocking wigs!!! That’s why the kardasheathans took interest. Before this trend wigs were used as custumes and weren’t anywhere near this quality so they never would rock them!

    • Snowflake says:

      I wish I knew how to do that! I’m white and I think it’s neat to be able to change up your hairstyle without dyeing your hair. Just pop on a wig and go.

  26. Zee says:

    Goodness!…..I swear she looks like a washed up porn star….Nothing wrong with being sexy but she is a mother now and need to be a little more classy with it. She is not even attractive anymore and she is morphing into her mother look wise.

  27. Velvet Elvis says:

    Her body looks incredible but sadly she’s looking especially cat faced these days. Makes me sad because she was a genuine beauty.

  28. bap says:

    In the 21st century that will making anyone an ICON.

  29. Veronica says:

    I liked the gold dress until I saw it from the side. *sigh* Always SOMETHING with Kardashians. The other two outfits…revealing, but honestly, not particularly terrible given her history.

  30. donna says:

    her eye situation is so wonky!!! one eye is looking at london, the other is talking to tokyo!! LMAO!!!!!!

  31. D says:

    I used to beg you to stop covering the Ks. Funny now I find Kim sympathetic. And she pulls off some fashion ideas I think about. Hell has frozen over. Still don’t click on general K stories and never the Jenners

  32. Jaded says:

    She’s like the offspring of a circus clown and a Frederick’s of Hollywood model.

  33. MrsPanda says:

    The front facing photos show how chiseled her lower jaw/chin area has become. Perhaps she had the jaw/chin reduction that Kylie had, or it’s the enhanced cheekbones that give the illusion of a thinner/longer lower face. She looks great with hair covering or side angles, but front on you can see her jawline/chin look off. TBH I thought Kylie looked great with her first chin/jaw reduction and early lip injections. If she’d stopped then I think it was surgery well done, but Kim had a lovely natural face shape and she’s messed with the balance of it.
