Given the now all too familiar media frenzy surrounding the Kardashian family’s daily activities, it seems almost impossible to believe, but there was once a time when instead of being the star of the Grammys’ red carpet, Kim Kardashian was on the sidelines merely hosting coverage of it.
And that seemingly fictional time wasn’t even all that long ago. In anticipation of tonight’s broadcast, Kim posted on her website and app about her 2009 award show hosting experience, writing, “This was such a fun night! For the 2009 Grammys, I had the chance to act as an E! news host on the red carpet. My silver-white organza dress was by Toni Maticevski and I paired it with Christian Louboutin silver heels. Mario Dedivanovic did my makeup—soft pink lips and lush lashes. I love how the entire look came together.”
Mrs. West also shared a number of behind the scenes photos of her and glam squad staple Mario Dedivanovic prepping for the big night. Of course, these TBTs still feature a number of the reality star’s signature beauty looks, such as a sleek up-do, nude lips, and eyebrow-skimming false eyelashes. What’s surprising, however, is the photographic proof that there was a time in Kim’s life before she’d even heard of the word contouring. What’s even more surprising is that she hasn’t already invented an Instagram filter that could retroactively fix these types of contour-less situations yet.
What do you think of Kim’s 2009 Grammys red carpet look? Do you prefer her beauty look then or now?
