While Kim and Kanye’s matching outfits get a lot of criticism, Kim Kardashian’s style has even more lows when she’s on her own. Discover Kim Kardashian’s worst dressed moments, outfits that might be stylish by themselves, but failed when worn or accessorized by Kim.
From her pregnancy fashion mistakes to looks that still make her look bad even when she’s at her ideal weight, see Kim Kardashian’s worst looks, outfits that rightfully landed her on the worst dressed list.
1. Givenchy ''couch dress'' from the MET Gala
The Givenchy gown what landed her at no. 2 on Time magazine’s Worst Dressed in 2013 list, was simply the wrong choice for Kim.
No matter how pregnant you are, you can still find something better to wear than Kim’s choice for the “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” Costume Institute Gala. The long sleeves with matching gloves combined with the floral print and the high slit simply don’t work.
2. Givenchy Cutout Dress
Happy to get back to her ideal weight after the pregnancy, Kim started showing a little too much skin along with her new blond locks. Fashion critics have always noted that Kim loves too much cleavage, but the black dress she wore in Paris for the “Mademoiselle C” premiere adds midriff cutouts to create one of Kim Kardashian’s worst dressed moments.
3. Julien MacDonald Sheer Dress
Even for Las Vegas, some outfits are just too much. Kim went over the line by mixing lace with sheer and a touch of sequins. While she showed restraint when it comes to the accessories, her all black look simply didn’t work. The overdone detailing and the long sleeves amounted to an outfit that both reveals and covers too much.
4. Yellow Jacket and Mini Skirt
One of Kim Kardashian’s worst dressed moments was so bad that she quickly admitted to the fashion faux-pas herself. “Ok, ok, I am putting myself on the worst dress list for this outfit! I wanted a little color while I’m living in Miami, so my intentions were good, but the cut isn’t for me! You definitely need to be taller and thinner to pull this jacket style off! Fashion is all about experimenting to try and find your style and you have some hits and misses along the way. The mirror was lying to me this day! Where were my sisters or my boyfriend when I needed a good opinion?! LOL,” Kim wrote on her blog about the outfit.
5. Maternity Peplum Pants
Maternity outfits can put a wrench in anyone’s style, but Kim choose to ignore all the rules for both pregnancy fashion and her own proportions when we walked out the house in this ridiculous outfit. The peplum pants are bad enough, but the high waist and the print end up adding extra pounds to her frame and the effect is anything but flattering.
6. Mirror Camo Dress
Las Vegas is a bad fashion magnet, so it’s no wonder than more than one of Kim Kardashian’s worst dressed moments was captured in Sin City. Wearing a dress that can only be described as “mirror camo”, Kim chose a flattering silhouette and rocked her bangs, but couldn’t pull her look together on the red carpet at Pure Nightclub.
7. 2011 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Dress
At the 16th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, Kim definitely picked a good color, but maybe too much of it. The copper dress was right for her silhouette, but the fabric ended up being way too shiny and too fussy for the dress. Kim may have accessorized the dress correctly, but she couldn’t save it.
8. Clive Davis 2012 Pre-Grammy Gala Dress
A revealing cleavage is responsible for some of Kim Kardashian’s worst dressed moments, but nothing has topped her Clive Davis 2012 Pre-Grammy Gala dress. The royal blue dress may look great on Kim’s hips, but the top is just 5 sizes too small, making her chest look like it’s about to burst.
9. Military Green Dress
Wearing a matching outfit with Kanye might have been a much better idea than the military inspired green dress Kim wore while her fiancé kept this simple in his signature white tee. Wearing this outfit in Paris, the fashion capital of the world, is just wrong, but at least it wasn’t during Fashion Week.
10. Gucci Runway Look
Purple and orange can be used to create interesting contrasts, but adding turquoise shoes to it helped create another one of Kim Kardashian’s worst dressed moments. The gold belt with tassels is the final detail that sinks the looks, since it adds nothing to Kim’s outfit, but manages to highlight her bare midriff even more.
