After Kim Kardashian West’s low-key sexy VMAs appearance, you’re probably wondering if the OG of “go glam or go home” is turning over a new style leaf. As it turns out, she is. She addressed her understated, simple look in a post on her blog, explaining that the whole ensemble came together right before she left for the white carpet.

“For this year’s VMAs, I originally wanted to go for a really glammed up look, but I changed my mind last minute,” she wrote on her website. “I was so inspired by my recent trip to Mexico, that I went with this amazing, vintage Galliano dress that I already had in my closet, for forever.”

She also stuck to a makeup look she’s been doing “forever.”

“Mario Dedivanovic gave me a bronzed natural makeup look and Michael Silva went for a natural wet wavy hair style to complement my outfit,” she wrote.

So what’s with the laid-back dressing? Kim maintains her recent vacation inspired her new style phase.

“We were so inspired by the beach hair and light makeup I did during a photoshoot at Casa Aramara,” she said referring to her retreat at friend Joe Francis’s villa in Punta Mita, Mexico.

Will her low-key style vibes continue through New York Fashion Week? Unclear. But that tan isn’t going anywhere.
