Kim Kardashian Did Pretty-Princess and Goth Bride in Two Dolce & Gabbana Looks in One Day


Kim Kardashian isn’t new to making headlines for her front-row looks at fashion shows. Who can forget her squeaky yellow tape outfit at Balenciaga, the mother-daughter coordinated look with North West at Jean Paul Gaultier, or the time she showed up in head-to-toe latex at Balmain?

The entrepreneur also put her star power and style credentials to use on and off the runway when she walked for the Balenciaga couture show in July last year, before she was tapped as curator for Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2023 collection. While the latter and the consequent feud between the mother-of-four and her older sister Kourtney continues to be fodder for the latest season of The Kardashians, Kim made not one but two remarkable sartorial statements this week.


The first one saw her embrace an entirely new persona as she arrived at the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda 2023 show in Puglia channeling her version of Sleeping Beauty. Foregoing her usually favored figure-hugging dresses and bodysuits, Kardashian stunned the crowd in a plum taffeta gown with an off-shoulder neckline and a floor-grazing train. To complement the ultra-feminine look, the Skims founder opted for a statement diamond necklace, and a voluminous half-up-half-down hairdo, which was a far cry from her signature sleek, middle-parted locks.


Proving she can do pretty princess just as well as goth chic, Kardashian’s second outfit in Puglia saw her dressed in all-black. The reality TV star arrived at the after-party wearing a corset with gold detailing, a long satin skirt, mesh gloves, and to top it all off, a sheer black lace-trimmed veil. Peeking through it was a bold necklace with a large star-shaped gemstone pendant. Although the internet was quick to draw comparisons between this outfit and Kourtney Kardashian’s Portofino wedding look, it is only the sisters themselves who can clear the air around it all—perhaps in another season of The Kardashians.
