Kim Kardashian’s Before-And-After Dressing Room Shot

Kim Kardashian knows that before stepping out in a statement dress for a big event, it’s vital to give it a trial run in the comfort of your own boudoir first.

And true to form, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has allowed us a sneak peek into her pre-night out prep by sharing a snap of her before and after evening looks.

Posing first with no make-up on, a messy top knot and her underwear on full show in her gorgeous leopard-print Lanvin gown, Kim then shared a shot of her finished look, in which her shapewear is cleverly concealed, the pumps have been swapped for tan gladiator stilettos and her flawless hair and make-up looks are well and truly in place.

‘Loved this look so much. I wore this leopard print maxi wrap dress by Lanvin last Christmas Eve. It fit so perfectly. Here I am trying it on to make sure it worked for the evening. Xo’, the newly-named Mrs West captioned the photo.

We love Kim for reminding us that those perfectly polished red carpet looks are only the result of plenty of non-glamorous bedroom prep. And for making us all feel that little bit more human.

If you want to channel Kimmy K’s wild summer style, try this gorgeous lookalike Michael Kors maxi dress which is currently half price in the sale at just £108. Miaow.
