Kim Kardashian tried out a totally new dress shape at the Time 100 gala in New York at the Lincoln Center last night, bringing some drama in her floor-length Sophie Theallet gown. Different for her!
The 34-year-old reality TV star seems to be veering away from her signature bodycon lately, and this time she eschewed her usual skintight silhouette in favour of a full skirt and plunging neckline.
While the all-over eyelet pattern brought a delicate, girly quality to the dress, the sheer straps and lacy bodice top still maintained Kim’s love of all things daring.
Letting her frock do the talking, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star kept her hair and make-up simple, rocking a simple centre-parting ponytail, shimmering gold eyeliner and a peachy blush.
But as Kim glided down the red carpet with hubby Kanye West, who stunned the audience on the night with a performance art-infused 20-minute set, the couple found themselves falling victim to a prank in front of all the paps.
MTV Movie Awards host Amy Schumer pretended to trip and fall in front of Kim and Kanye, collapsing in a heap on the red carpet and laying there silently in her navy fishtail frock.
While Kim managed a small smile and her bodyguard Pascal Duvier was seen giggling in the background, Kanye did not look amused as he marched his wife stony-faced off the red carpet. Oops!
We’re loving this subtle change in direction for Kim and her wardrobe. Just last week, the mum-of-one opted for a chic forest green draped bandeau dress for the Kardashian Beauty Hair launch in Paris, which was a more demure look than we usually see her in.
And considering she stepped out in a hoodie and jeans for her LAX airport ride yesterday, it looks like Kim is definitely relaxing up her ‘drobe this month.
We wonder what she’ll surprise us with next…
