With no disrespect to the Lan Yu Couture design, we feel like if the diamond part of the dress was actually the entire outfit, it would have worked much better. The long fabric running down the middle of the cream-colored dress, although wonderfully sparkly, just looks a bit like a very fancy apron.
And those chain-like threads tying it over the dress like a spider — we have to give it a thumbs down.
Is That a Plastic Bag?
Considering this is Kim Kardashian we’re talking about, of course this dress has to be haute couture. But if we’re honest, it looks like someone wrapped Kim up in a very shiny, very large grey plastic bag. Everything is just too glossy and sleek. Even her hair looks like it was glued down.
We can’t even imagine how difficult it was to walk around in that all night. Then again, if anyone wants to recreate the look, they’ll be able to do it by visiting their local Home Depot store.
What Is She Wearing?
We get that the Met Gala is a place where celebrities want to stun viewers with their extraordinary outfits. But Kourtney, what were you wearing? It seems to be a bad mix between a black, stitched-over flamenco-style skirt, an 1800s girdle, and a white caterer’s blouse cut in half.
Assuming the skirt and the girdle are actually a one-piece long skirt, the two-color situation is simply not flattering here. The best thing about the outfit is the elegant black shoes.
The Purple and Gold Fiasco
Kim’s gown is a lovely dark purple color with a chic one-shoulder design and stylish fabric. And everything would have been perfect if that’s all the gown had, but some designers decided it would be a great idea to embed gold details in the most random places.
Kim looks like an explosion of fabric gone wrong, with shiny gold fabric over one breast, on one side of her hip, and on parts of her shoulder strap.
A Badly Wrapped Kourtney
We’re sure that Kourtney had everybody at the 2017 Grammy Gala turning heads, but not necessarily for the right reasons. Yes, the Kardashian sister does have a great body, but wrapping it up in black, partly sheer fabric that looks ripped in all the wrong places, isn’t the way to go.
The dress starts with a great shape in the cleavage area but quickly descends into a mess of strings and awkward shapes that have to make you wonder if her kids didn’t mistake the gown for an arts and crafts project.
