Sidewalk Style – Kim Kardashian In Lanvin For H&M

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian was spotted leaving her hotel in New York City last night after a day of press junkets.

She looked gorgeous wearing a Lanvin for H&M eggplant one-shoulder dress.

The dress with a poufy shoulder and black grosgrain waistband has been well worn by other celebrities.

It’s interesting how she always seems to be months behind any trend.

She styled her dress with YSL Trib Too pumps and sultry smoky eyes.

This is a divine colour for her. I would’ve expected her to go for the attention seeking bright pink version.

    i think that kim kardashian has been lately going for the ‘elegance’ look and is trying to clear her ‘attention seeking’ name by wearing big name desginers and i have to embarrasingly admit that shes doign pretty well, but you’re right that dress is pretty old!

      In celebrity years this dress is now old.

    I have this feeling that she has a different stylist these days. Her style is less hoochy and more elegant.

    I like it a lot on her. I also think it’s strange how you say ‘months behind any trend’ – this dress is so beautiful and classic – and I know it went on sale months ago but how can you behind on a trend when it’s not really a ‘trendy’ dress in the first place?
    She has good style here and that’s all that matters really?

      I meant that so many people were seen wearing these dresses last year.

    if only Christina Aguilera and Kim Kardashian would go easy on the war paint on their face……

    You are right. I think her style is much better now. But she needs to go easy on the make up. She looks gorgeous without any make up on anyway.

    Aguilera needs to go easy on the make up, the blond, the dresses and the YSL pumps! That shoe is a century older in celebreties fashion years.

    Yes for the dress but no for its colour. Like the shoes and accessories as well as the hair. Good points for Ms Kardashian

    I wonder what will her stylist think! Kim seems to be behind in some outfit! I’m a big fan of Kim and especially her style! I love her stylist too and immensely enjoy reading her stylist, monica rose’s blog!

    Kim looks chic and classy even though, nio matter what she does, she will always be that Playboy bombshell with the attention-wh-re family, sex tape and no actual good reason to be famous than say Cate Blanchett, Maya Angelou or even Danica Patrick! Admit it- the Trib Toos work here.

      they do..hence I didn’t moan :)

  9. Ariel January 20, 2011 at 17:04 #

    She looks smoking hot here! I agree that she should go easy on the makeup though.

    FC, please don’t get sucked in by Kim. She is NOT stylish.

    • Fashion Critic January 20, 2011 at 17:54 #

      Oh my dear, I will never get sucked in. she was made famous from a ‘leaked’ porn video and that’s what I see first when I look at her.

    usually not a fan of kim but love this one on her :p

    On a somewhat related note, I went in H&M yesterday (I live in Sweden), and I was surprised to see that several of the Lanvin dresses were still hanging there, sort of blended in with the rest of the H&M stuff. After hearing about all the hype and enormous queues, I thought they had sold out in mere hours..

    • Fashion Critic January 20, 2011 at 20:15 #

      I’ve seen that too in a few stores. Once the first day of excitement is over, people get over it

    I love this dress on her. This may be hte best I have ever seen this dress worn by a celebrity, I think it calls for an absence of much jewellery, and it needs more or less simplicity to be pulled off. Although I understand what you are sayign about the pink, in that it is attention seeking, essentially what kim is very good at, but this shade seems far more like other colours she wears. She looks gorgeous.

    I like this dress on her, what shoes did you end up wearing with your’s FC? I still haven’t worn mine yet!

    • Fashion Critic January 20, 2011 at 23:52 #

      Black strappy sandals. I tried all my shoes it and it really hard to complement

  15. mochababe73 January 20, 2011 at 22:59 #

    I love the dress on her, and it’s styled correctly. It’s not in the typical formula of tight, short, boobs out that she loves.
    I like Kim’s style. Since I don’t have an H&M, I didn’t know that she was “months” behind. But, I am not a Lanvin fan.
