Sheer Madness! Kim Kardashian West's Most Memorable See-Through Looks
Turtlenecks are risky. Mesh turtlenecks are even riskier. Especially when paired with a lycra high-waisted pencil skirt. (NOTE: Kim was going for a casual dinner with her friend Simon Huck in this photo.)
CFDA AWARDS 2015
MET GALA 2015
Forget the Kate Effect. Let’s talk about the Kim Effect. The star’s lace sheer-stomach For Love & Lemons bodysuit is sold out everywhere.
VARIETY'S POWER OF WOMEN LUNCHEON 2015
The star must have a closet dedicated to her nude bras, flashing her undergarments once again in a sheer top, plus, high-waisted flare trousers and an ankle-grazing vest (both Narciso Rodriguez). But the buzziest part of this look was her custom Olympia Le-Tan book clutch reading, Mr. and Mrs. West, A Love Story.
LOS ANGELES 2015
Kim’s version of athleisure involves a sheer-paneled sports bra and Jersey knit skirt.
Most of the star’s Paris Fashion Week wardrobe was completely sheer, like this stocking-style turtleneck, which she teamed with a high-wasited skirt, open-toe boots and a luxe fur coat.
LANVIN FALL 2015 HAUTE COUTURE SHOW
Open-toe sandals and a mesh dress (this one is Lanvin) that bares more than it conceals is a regular #OOTD for Kim.
GIVENCHY SPRING 2015 FASHION SHOW
LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS 2014
Baring briefs = a Kim style trademark, as she demonstrated in this lace green Rachel Roy design.
BALENCIAGA FALL 2015 SHOW
Why wear a dress that serves its purpose when you can wear an elaborate, expensive swimsuit cover up and camel coat! (Our real focus: Those very un-Kim lace-up pumps.)
Kim proves once again she’s not afraid of expressing herself in the fashion capital of the world, braving a see-through caged top and matching skirt (both Balmain) that expose her undergarments, plus, her favorite Céline coat with fur lapels (note the fashion draping over her shoulders) and Giuseppe Zanotti boots.
ADIDAS ORIGINALS X KANYE WEST FASHION SHOW 2015
Considering leggings as pants are a total wardrobe staple, it was only a matter of time before the star graduated to straight-up nylons, which she wore to support her debut line for Adidas. (And yes, we bet the rapper designed the look with Kim as his muse.)
DIAMOND BALL 2014
has stepped out in a ton of bodysuits, but we usually don’t see the whole thing at once. She was feeling extra risky at Diamond Ball in Beverly Hills, layering a blinged-out mesh dress by Balenciaga over a black one-piece, completing the look with a silky coat.
GQ MEN OF THE YEAR AWARDS 2014
Not only was she the only female to accept an award at the male magazine’s show, but she was the only person wearing latex on the red carpet in her cleavage-flaunting Atsuko Kudo bodysuit (she owns a ton of pieces from the couture latex label), teamed with a high-waist embellished sheer gunmetal Ralph & Russo skirt featuring a center slit. (Jaw, meet floor!)
SIRIUSXM RADIO APPEARANCE 2014
More proof that Kim’s the queen of the sheer top trend.
VIENNA OPERA BALL 2014
Kim’s here to answer your pressing question of what to wear when you attend the Vienna Opera Ball with your mom next year: a dramatic Ralph Rucci gown comprised of a mostly-sheer black halter and a nude skirt with see-through stripes (one of which shows off the undies).
TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO 2013
Just a few months after giving birth to North, Kim flaunted her hourglass shape in a see-through white lace Dolce & Gabbana sheath with a black bra and panty underneath.
NEW YEAR'S EVE 2012
Kim didn’t let her first pregnancy stop her from wearing things like a barely-there netted and appliquéd dress that shows miles of skin. And she feels the same way about her second one.
LATE NIGHT WITH DAVID LETTERMAN 2011
Fact: Even before she was Mrs. West, loved sheer paneling.
