Kim Kardashian has made her first red carpet appearance post her Paris robbery ordeal and she really amped up the, well, Kimmy K-ness of it all. Which makes sense, a return has to have impact and all of that.
And there were three key elements to discuss about Kim’s return to the spotlight at the Fashion Awards in LA.
Her wet-look do
Some say wet, others say greasy. In any case, this is not an easy look to pull off for a fancy event/ever.
The thing is, while it might look like Kardashian has emerged mermaid style from a pool and headed straight to the party, this is catagorically not the case. It’s really hard to look effortless! It’s a look that Kardashian (who has also jettisoned the long, Cher-like extensions she’s been sporting for the past few months) has worn before, at last year’s VMAs.
This is how her hairstylist, Michael Silva described it to Wmagazine [emphasis our own].
“We wanted to keep it fresh and sexy. When she came in she was just sort of not done and her hair was damp, and we said let’s play up this texture. That endless summer vibe. Obviously, her hair was not wet, I just created that kind of effect.”
Approach with caution.
That Givenchy dress
Just like dark chocolate with sea salt and Nutella with a spoon, another perfect combination is Kim Kardashian in a Givenchy dress.
Remember her wedding dress?! Her latest look is classic Kim Kardashian – it’s sheer, it dials up the drama and it’s s e x y. This piece was from the house’ fall 2011 couture collection, and it’s basically a work of art. The full-briefs and the heavy embellishments are the cherry on top.
The Oceans 8 connection
Speaking of Givenchy, the dress nodded to the Givenchy (sheer, lacy, way dramatic) one that Kardashian wore to film her cameo in the upcoming Oceans 8 film. According to People, Kardashian will appear with her younger sister Kendall in a scene set at the Met Gala. She’s so back.
