Kim Kardashian Givenchy – 2013 Met Gala

Kim Kardashian Givenchy - 2013 Met Gala

I know this is one post you weren’t expecting to see, but I was so horrified at how bad Kim Kardashian looked at the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening that I was compelled to write something.

Anna Wintour lifted her bar on the reality TV star from last year’s Met Gala to allow her to walk proudly with her baby daddy Kanye West on the red carpet on Monday evening.
As you know, Anna has final approval on the looks, so this could be her having the last laugh.

I mean, really, this floral Givenchy Fall 2013 blossom gown is not only horrendous but it is doing nothing for her and I have seen it from every angle.

We have complained that some didn’t try hard enough last night, but Kim tried too hard. Her desperation was oozing from her every pore.

Aside from the side slit, I think the high-neck, built-in-glove gown made her look frumpy. Just when I thought she was getting to grips with her maternity style, which she was fighting against for so long, this goes and happens.

Stéphane Rolland would’ve made her a far more flattering gown.

    oh God why…
    by the way wonder why Kanye does not look too happy :)

    I actually threw up when I saw this. Threw up all over the screen. Her worst outfit to date. And that’s hard to say coming from me!!!

    • Christine May 7, 2013 at 19:08 #

      LMAO Ricardo set her up. This is clearly a joke. I mean what in the world????????

      • sammy May 7, 2013 at 21:27 #

        LOL I totally agree with u! This is nasty!!

  3. Eimear May 7, 2013 at 16:03 #

    Hmm, I actually love this! I though it was demur and elegant
    apart from the stupid gloves which look ridic. And the lipstick is a lovely shade for the dress.

    Side note, wheres RiRi? Guess she was a no show at ball! But she still found time to totally hate on Nicole Richie haha.

    • Marty May 7, 2013 at 19:08 #

      Rihanna was at a concert and if you read her comment correctly she said Nicole Richie was best dressed.

  4. Marybeth May 7, 2013 at 16:04 #

    Perhaps someone naughty told her the theme this year was furniture. ;)

  5. EmmaWoodhouse May 7, 2013 at 16:04 #

    One of the first comments–on what I think will be the most commented post of the event…frankly, this was the worst look of the night (though Madonna came close, imo, and I wasn’t a fan of Kristen Stewart either). This is SO bad. It’s like a sofa exploded on her! The high turtleneck, the built-in gloves, it’s all SO ridiculous. I didn’t like the side slit either (not a fan of slits) but it was the only way she had to BREATHE LOL! It’s just ridiculous. This woman should NEVER have been let into the Gala–she has no fashion sense and does not deserve to be recognized at events like this. I know that may sound harsh but that’s my opinion. Anyway the look is realyl comical. I bet Anna WAS laughing, because she should be. WDOTY–this look will haunt my nightmares!
    P.S. to add an additional insult to mortal injury, it’s not remotely punk.

    • Bella May 7, 2013 at 23:57 #

      TOTALLY AGREE!!! She looked horrendous and should never have been there!

  6. Alina May 7, 2013 at 16:05 #

    It’s kind of sad because she’s had times when she looked decent.

  7. Joy May 7, 2013 at 16:06 #

    Oh boy, Everyone is going to have a field day with this. :) All I can say is, it’s tough being pregnant. Why would you want to step out looking like that? I mean I wouldn’t have wanted to come close to that red carpet with a ten foot pole. But that is just me. And if you so badly want to be seen with your man, why in gods name can you not wear something flattering? Seriously, you can not keep wearing the same stuff you wore before you were pregnant. For her sake (or maybe ours) I hope she figures this out soon.

  8. Sally May 7, 2013 at 16:09 #

    Bedspread.

  9. serenissima May 7, 2013 at 16:12 #

    This is honestly so bad it’s comical. The floral print, the gloves… It’s all SO WRONG.

  10. Miguel Angel May 7, 2013 at 16:17 #

    I couldn’t stop laughing at this look while watching it last night … It’s so wrong on so many levels! LOL

  11. Moxie May 7, 2013 at 16:18 #

    There is absolutely nothing about this look that works. It is like she picked the most covered up gown she could to show the people who are always trashing her revealing clothes that she can go conservative. Ugh.

  12. dee May 7, 2013 at 16:20 #

    This is dreadful.

  13. kathryn May 7, 2013 at 16:24 #

    This is so terrible that I feel bad for Kim. She clearly was trying so hard to be accepted and she shows up dressed like her grandmother’s old couch. I mean so many beautiful Givenchy gowns walked the red carpet last night and she wore this….:/ I definitely think she has bad taste and Anna Wintour let her hang herself with it. Worst dressed for sure!

  14. noo May 7, 2013 at 16:25 #

    i hate every bit of this, wdoty for me! the pattern is ok but she’s so covered up and heavily pregnant, she looks like a couch imo! even if she showed her hands it would have been better…

  15. Ali Elgashi May 7, 2013 at 16:29 #

    i love the print & the dress is amazing but not for her

  16. michaboa May 7, 2013 at 16:33 #

    And she had the audacity to wear MATCHING FLORAL SANDALS!!!!! #icant

  17. Yeliz May 7, 2013 at 16:36 #

    I have no words for this attention-seeking, awful look.

  18. Pedro May 7, 2013 at 16:42 #

    Worst look EVER!

    Trashy, try hard, tacky and she looks HUGE

  19. glenn May 7, 2013 at 16:43 #

    She is the worst dressed ever in history, this is my grandma couch

  20. Lee Ann May 7, 2013 at 16:49 #

    Hubert de Givenchy must be speechless to have his name attached to this moving herbacious border

  21. andrea May 7, 2013 at 16:52 #

    This is wrong on soooooo many levels.

  22. eimear May 7, 2013 at 17:11 #

    Wheres my comment!

  23. regina May 7, 2013 at 17:17 #

    Hahahahaha! My nan’s sofa came to life and went to the Met Gala!

  24. Kate May 7, 2013 at 17:19 #

    I think Beyonce and Riccardo Tisci conspired on this one ;)

    • Catherine Kallon May 7, 2013 at 18:38 #

      lol

  25. Nat May 7, 2013 at 17:22 #

    I think Anna Wintour had the last laugh with this look. There is no way this can look good on anyone specially if you are pregnant. This is the reason why she was banned last year. I guess she won’t be coming back again. At least I hope so.

  26. Quinn May 7, 2013 at 17:34 #

    Anna punk’d Kim! haha

  27. Prudence May 7, 2013 at 17:43 #

    she will never be invited again after this disaster. I have to blame kanye because he is mr givenchy, he must have orchestrated this embarrassment.

  28. justme May 7, 2013 at 17:46 #

    I bet Kanye picked this mess -_-
    I was never a fan of her style but before him, she at least wore clothes that flatter her body type.

  29. robbie May 7, 2013 at 17:47 #

    she looks terrible.

    sorry but the met gala has just lost all the glamour it used to have seeing as reality trash like kim and by the looks of things that irritating gangnam style guy are there.

    • Layla May 8, 2013 at 16:31 #

      I agree. Why was she there? She dresses absolutely atrocious. I am disappointed in Anna, if this thing ever graces the cover of vogue, it would be time for Anna to go.

  30. Solveig May 7, 2013 at 18:16 #

    Poor girl ..

  31. toyosi May 7, 2013 at 18:23 #

    The backlash here is a little overwhelimg and seems as though people are attacking her rather than the outfit itself. Bearing in mind, those who call her audacious for the matching gloves and shoes, Beyonce did the very same thing.

    Admittedly she has look better, but I still think she looks beautiful. So what if she’s pregnant, why should she have to be slimmer to pull it off? Perhaps she should’ve swapped the high neckline for a lower one and get rid of the slit, but people would judge her for revealing her ample cleavage. I’d rather she wasn’t wearing the gloves and matching shoes, it’d be better. No, it doesn’t go with the punk theme, but she’s not the only one who chose otherwise.

    Relax on the condemnation.

    • Pam May 7, 2013 at 18:46 #

      I’ve got to agree with toyosi, I don’t think this looks that bad. I like it better than Beyonce’s outfit. I’m wondering if the whole “I look like a sofa” idea was intentional. It’s hard for a curvy short girl to elegantly carry the extra pregnancy weight. Maybe tonight her “punk” self decided to say the hell with it and dress how she felt. Like a sofa. I also feel like there is a whole lot of unwarranted hate out there for Kim in the fashion world. Yeah, she got famous because of a sex tape, but we forgive many for far worse. Kate Moss for example.

    • Mrs. A May 7, 2013 at 20:53 #

      @Toyisi – well said!

    • justme May 7, 2013 at 21:47 #

      Did you go into the Beyoncé post? People are not more forgiving over there.

      I agree that there is a weird bias sometimes. Some celebrities can get away with fashion murder (because they’re so naturally classy or whatever) while others can’t have one mishap without getting dragged.

      But come on, this is not a good look. That print alone…

    • Eve_V May 8, 2013 at 00:57 #

      I don’t necessarily agree with comparing her look to Beyonce’s, since Beyonce had at least some skin showing, so it didn’t feel like mummy-wear. Kim is practically wrapped in this hideous roll of fabric. I can hardly imagine anyone, who would look good in this, especially while pregnant.

    • Beta May 8, 2013 at 09:25 #

      +1 agree with you totally. I think her outfit is just as awful as Beyonce’s, and yes she might be desperate but I thought that Bey having the whole red carpet cleared for her was also pretty desperate

  32. Noemi May 7, 2013 at 18:25 #

    Ok, she’s pregnant and she doesn’t have a slim figure, but she looks like a sofa, the fabric looks cheap and the dress is not flattering at all. I hope she’s there only because she’s K. West’s fiancé… FC, I didn’t know that Wintour approve all the looks, and that makes me think that fashion business is very crazy. Who is this woman?

    • CreoleLady May 7, 2013 at 19:07 #

      “… I didn’t know that Wintour approve[d] all the looks…Who is this woman?” My thoughts exactly!!! When I read that I had a real WTF moment. A woman with helmet hair and one pair of shoes is going to approve what other grown women are wearing. Absurd.

  33. Jecaden May 7, 2013 at 18:28 #

    First all all, the dress is hideous! She looks like she’s wrapped in wallpaper! The matching gloves make her hands look like they are diseased! The slit in the dress should be sewn up to hide her chunky leg! Secondly, her face looks waxed like a Madame Tussaud exhibit! But worst of all, Kanye degraded her by making her wear a dress designed by Riccardo Tisci, his lover!

    • Sa'a May 7, 2013 at 19:58 #

      Omggggggggg!his lover,now that’s new.

    • Gabby M May 7, 2013 at 22:42 #

      ohhh funniest comment for the night! lol @ diseased

  34. Stephanie May 7, 2013 at 19:19 #

    Did she get dressed in the dark???

  35. zara May 7, 2013 at 19:25 #

    FC, did you notice that her shoes also match her dress?

    • Catherine Kallon May 7, 2013 at 21:04 #

      yes :D

  36. Sa'a May 7, 2013 at 20:03 #

    I feel sorry for her,she really was trying so hard and failed.Why on earth would Kanye allow her to go out like this???? Oh I can already hear the jokes coming out of Joan RIvers!
    P.s keep up the good work Ma’m Catherine.

  37. Mrs. A May 7, 2013 at 20:47 #

    @Toyisi – well said!

  38. Betelgeuze May 7, 2013 at 21:38 #

    I laughed so hard on this. Revenge is a dish best served floral.

  39. Gabby M May 7, 2013 at 22:28 #

    Hmm 2nd worst dressed. Paltrows dress annoyed me even more then this one

  40. MomAcorn May 7, 2013 at 23:13 #

    There are so many beautiful gowns and fabrics that would have made her look better. This is not the kind of dress that everyone wants now. I have pillows that look good in this color but that’s all.
    Poor Kim.

  41. Magdalena May 7, 2013 at 23:30 #

    THIS, is why she was banned from the Met Gala (and this site) on previous years.
    Oh, and she always oozes desperation from every pore.

  42. NovuyoM May 7, 2013 at 23:45 #

    I just started commenting recently. How come you don’t report on Kim much lately (past 1-2 years)? And, no I wouldn’t want you to feature her more haha

  43. Mia May 8, 2013 at 00:00 #

    She shouldn’t be there to begin with and looks absolutely awful – so fugly and totally agree with the desperation comment, this woman will never ever be classy or sophisticated…

  44. Kevinappears May 8, 2013 at 01:21 #

    Despite the horrible pair, did you guys see PSY in the middle? That makes me laugh more!

    • Leela May 8, 2013 at 02:06 #

      Cannot un-see Psy now hahaha.

      It’s been very clear that she’s been horrible at dressing her baby bump but this just got to the worst level possible. That pattern is ugly, colours are ugly, gloves are ugly – wouldn’t look good on anybody!
      Honestly Kim has great make-up/hair stylists – all she needed was a nice black maxi, studded heels/sandals & belt and a punky hairstyle to go with a bold lip.

  45. Parvati May 8, 2013 at 01:44 #

    Horrible and so unflattering!

  46. Alicat May 8, 2013 at 03:09 #

    This is sad, but then she has made pots of money from putting herself out there. It goes to show that an innate sense of style is more important in the fashion stakes than money. Still, one can buy advice. Either she did this alone, or someone played a nasty joke on her. Women can look absolutely beautiful when pregnant. Granted she does not carry her pregnancy well, but that is not the reason why this so terrible.

  47. Leo May 8, 2013 at 03:36 #

    Looking at this all I can think is: I wonder what Hubert thinks of this. The guy had Audrey Hepburn as a friend and muse and created the most beautiful couture for her. Now the brand he created is dressing trashy Kim Kardashian in this fabric mess.

  48. Angela May 8, 2013 at 03:56 #

    I think I would’ve adored this dress on model, where height and ability to carry strong patterns Is possessed. I love the wa the flowers are incredibly realistic and detailed, which (to me) prevents it from looking like a piece of furniture. However, when you’re deep into pregnancy, this is the least flattering cut possible. It only adds a bulbous shape to her body. Somethiing more low cut and flowy with a belt would’ve made her look less…. preggers.

  49. the ogre May 8, 2013 at 07:19 #

    Oh dear! Everyone is being so harsh! There were a lot of other much more experienced people at the Met who dressed really badly so I don’t think this is the worst dressed of the event. It’s just one of. I’ve never been a huge fan of her so I’m not very surprised by this terrible faux pas on her part. I don’t really expect anything from her. She has definitely looked better on a lot of occasions. Kanye West wanted this for her I’m pretty sure. He just didn’t think about the consequences. She looks uncomfortable in this and I don’t really blame her. I mean when u r pregnant, it’s difficult as it is to come to terms with ur changing body and on top of that she has just made it worse for herself by slipping into something that has such a deep slit by the side which looks like it ends below her baby bump and not the top of her thigh. the print is unflattering and makes her look even wider than she already is. i mean it’s like an insult to her beautiful baby bump. she should have dressed it more lovingly. at the place where she is, she could take a lot of notes from a lot of people. pregnancy is a great time bcoz the skin looks radiant as it is and u don’t have to do much so if only she would have been kinder to her own self she would have actually scrubbed up quite well but alas it’s a thing of the past now! she has just gone and done it and nothing can change that! sigh!

  50. Lyvm May 8, 2013 at 09:15 #

    This is quite a pretty gown and kim’s makeup and styling goes quite well with it but such intense florals are probably better on more narrow frame.

  51. Jess2 May 8, 2013 at 13:37 #

    No words to describe just how bad this is. I would put it on the WDOTY list. So unbelievably bad, someone sure was playing a trick on this girl. I can’t believe anyone let her out of the house in this, especially her so called fashion designer boyfriend and Anna Wintour. There is tooooo much print, the gloves and slit are ridiculous and there is nothing punk about this. Unfortunately Givenchy was a complete miss at this event. Between Kim and Beyonce’s matching gloves and shoes (oh the shoes!) and Rooney’s déjà vu, Riccardo is in big trouble! I agree with FC that Stéphane Rolland would have been much better! This is so bad!

  52. TeaAtTwo May 8, 2013 at 14:42 #

    The one time she gets to attend and falls short. I’m guessing she won’t be missed next year.

  53. britta May 8, 2013 at 21:00 #

    she looks gorgeous and the dress is stunning, from head to nails;) she made her first appearance at the met (with many critics) and she did it with grace. she is blooming! and is beautiful to watch. i sure don’t like the girl but her clothes are always beautiful.

  54. dcloset confidential May 9, 2013 at 12:00 #

    I honestly didn’t hate it.. the print is gorgeous and despite that it goes against all the ‘rules’ she look stunning and bountiful.. My only critique is that the gloves and shoes were too much..other than that I liked the brave choice of a high neck and chintzy floral print it shows CHUTZPAH

  55. DivaDebbi (Beauty and Fashion Blog) May 9, 2013 at 17:25 #

    As I said in my Met Gala Blog post of fabs and fuglies, “Motel 6 called. They want their bedspread back. They’ll leave the light on…”

    Good GOD!!!!!

  56. Ida May 10, 2013 at 14:24 #

    the lipstick is nice…
    the end

  57. Dhppy May 10, 2013 at 20:56 #

    If she wore this so that she could discretely hide amongst the planters in case she went in to labor yet remain at the party, then she’s a genius.

  58. George May 11, 2013 at 05:36 #

    Sometimes it’s so bad that it’s good. Thank you Kim, you just made my day! You look wider than Kanye and literally like a cow – I am so happy that I’ not even slightly sorry to say it.
