We knew Kim Kardashian West would leave jaws on the VMAs’ red carpet, and she didn’t disappoint. The star followed the barley there, skin-baring dress code in a low-cut, sheer LBD, lace-up sandals, and seriously dewy skin.
But her look definitely wasn’t an over-the-top Kim fashion moment. It was a bit more understated than we’ve seen from the 35-year-old star on past red carpets. She even left her blonde wig at home in favor of natural wet waves, which may be a indirect nod to her husband Kanye West’s hit song.
In fact, Kim probably wanted to keep the spotlight on Kanye, who’s up for Video of the Year for his controversial hit “Famous.” Kanye wore a white T-Shirt with “Famous” stitched on it, plus white jeans to coordinate with this wife.
Kim’s 2016 look was also a bit more kasual compared to her past VMAs’ ensembles. In 2011 (read: pre-Kanye), Kim stunned in a silver sheer-backed KaufmanFranco gown, followed by her plunging Balmain mini dress in 2014, which was expertly recreated by Ru Paul’s Drag race. And in 2015, her khaki lace-up Balmain gown that she wore while pregnant with her son Saint West.
One things for sure: The mom-of-two definitely proved to all her body shamers that she’s worthy of her “Snapback Queen” title. The star’s been sharing her weight loss journey on Snapchat, and she just returned from her Mexico vacation where she wore a parade of itty-bitty swimsuits.
But will she pull a VMA outfit change? Unclear. She will be presenting Britney Spears performance and we’d love for a sparkly catsuit moment. Stay tuned.
