Kim Kardashian In Ralph & Russo Couture & Atsuko Kudo – 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards

Kim Kardashian In Ralph & Russo Couture -  2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards

Kim Kardashian was also in attendance at the 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards, hosted in association with Hugo Boss at The Royal Opera House in London, England on Tuesday (September 2).

The reality TV star also worked the sheer trend, wowing in a fully custom-designed ensemble to collect her Women of the Year award.

Accentuating her famous curves, she wore an Atsuko Kudo black latex bustier-style bodysuit with a dramatic showpiece of a skirt: a Ralph & Russo Fall 2014 Couture corseted look that featured intricate gunmetal crystal detailing.

She accessorized with embellished Tom Ford sandals and a selection of diamond bangles, further enhancing the look with relaxed, pretty waves and a nude lip.

    Can we go back to not showing her on this site? This is disgusting.

  2. Amy September 5, 2014 at 6:46 pm #

    I read all the comments and to those supporting this look and Kim k I would like to quote to you the words of Sherlock the hotness, “Don’t talk out loud, you lower the IQ of the whole street”

  3. amy September 5, 2014 at 6:03 pm #

    I like the idea but the execution is poor: the bustier is too tight, her boobs look like they’re fighting for a chance to breath. and it’s either boobs or legs, not the two at the same time. Between the overexposed breast and the sheerness of the skirt, this look is too much.

  4. Gemma Rockets September 3, 2014 at 11:29 pm #

    I actually like this a lot. I have never watched Kim’s TV show, and have no desire to. I don’t care if Kim did a sex tape. I wouldn’t care if she was a porn star. I don’t think women have any obligation to dress more demurely after having a baby.
    I wonder if there would so much hate for this outfit if it was worn by a tall, slim model with small boobs? Because it’s not an inelegant dress. Women with bigger boobs and curves are always judged as being too ‘sexy’ if they show the same amount of skin as a slimmer woman. And everyone hates Kim so I don’t think anyone is being totally objective.

    Anyway, my two cents.

    • Lee ann September 4, 2014 at 10:41 am #

      Please stop it with the everyone hates Kim comments. I wouldn’t even know who she was albeit for the daily mail sidebar and this column. I just think she looks like an plumped cushion who has no style and wears a lot of fake tan.

      I would hate this outfit on a skeleton. It is vulgar. There is enough vulgarity in this world without her adding to it.

      • Gemma Rockets September 5, 2014 at 6:10 am #

        Fair enough, Lee Ann. I shouldn’t speak for ‘everyone.’ Of course you can dislike this outfit without having any particular feelings about the person wearing it.

        I do take issue with people making derogatory comments about any woman. we can comment on an outfit without using terms like ‘porn star’ ‘tacky’ ‘trashy’ ‘ugly’ ‘slutty’- I’m not accusing you of using those terms by the way, but it’s the fact that people do that bothers me.

        • Lee Ann September 5, 2014 at 10:58 am #

          Gemma, apologies but I did use the word trashy. But that was not aimed at the woman herself but the outfit which in my mind is just that. If my size 0 flat chested daughter wore this outfit I would still describe it as trashy. I also would make her change. My dislike for this outfit has nothing to do with chest size. This is a fashion blog so I dissect the fashion not the person. I personally loathe Charlise Theron ( yes I have met her) but that doesn’t stop me from admiring her style.

    • H September 4, 2014 at 4:35 pm #

      I agree with you Gemma, I would like people to start bashing women who have a lot of bust. I would love for readers to understand is perfect to be like this, and some people do apprecaite it. Now, I think you have to dress according to your body and yes, it doesn’t fall into the inelegant category at all, but she would love to be taken more serious and she comes and do this, but is her taste, not mine or ours.

  5. Larissa September 3, 2014 at 7:03 pm #

    I’m sorry if I comment again, I don’t usually do that but every single time Kim is featured the same old reasoning appears…If you don’t like her outfit BOOM you’re jealous, you’d kill to look like her, she (unlike you) is so smart and uses her body for business reasons etc. I thought this blog was about FASHION?? You know, dresses and accessories/hair and makeup? Why is so difficult to accept that in THAT department she’s a total failure for most of us, no matter what she achieves in terms of money/business/visibility?

  6. Lisa September 3, 2014 at 5:09 pm #

    I actually would have liked this if she covered her chest more. Way too much boobage, which ruins the entire look.

  7. Vicky September 3, 2014 at 4:55 pm #

    Woman of the Year? Sure thing, GQ. Whatever you say. Anyhoo, I’m not a fan of this dress. The original is better, but that also wouldn’t have looked great on Kim. Sigh.

  8. justine September 3, 2014 at 4:50 pm #

    I heard her on dancing with the stars describing herself as shy and modest.

  9. Valerie September 3, 2014 at 3:48 pm #

    You know, I’ve been cutting her a lot of slack, since it’s way harder to dress a body like hers, instead of a stick thin model. Its so easy to become trashy and OTT.
    But this?? Seriously, no excuses. I wonder what Kanye’s voice was in this.
    I just can’t believe she went out like that, it’s not even flattering.

    • sara September 3, 2014 at 10:08 pm #


  10. Jazz September 3, 2014 at 3:40 pm #

    She looks hot! Supposed to be a sexy ensemble for a GQ event! Especially as the Woman of the Year

    • nico September 3, 2014 at 5:22 pm #

      That was what she was going for,. She, unlike many others, is smart when it comes to branding. Rita Ora is the same too. She has now booked the cover of GQ UK; so it worked. Clothes are part of style and she wore outfits, to highlight her sexy body, which is needed for GQ.

      I said. that Jordan Dunn needed to come harder, to get a cover and she faded into the back ground.

  11. meme September 3, 2014 at 3:31 pm #

    Hideous. The entire getup is hideous. she took a beautiful Ralph & Russo gown and turned it into a trashbag skirt.

  12. H September 3, 2014 at 3:17 pm #

    There a few things I can’t quiet understand but before exposing them here I have to note I feel indifferent when it comes to the Kardashians, they are clearly doing something and that’s working to perfection cause they’re cashing big and everywhere.

    First and most important, why is Kim picking up Woman of the Year award? I understand GQ is a Condé Nast publication (same as Vogue) and they are strongly featuring her, which doesn’t bother me at all, but this award could’ve been saved for any other actress, singer who have been taking the world by storm, or better yet, a philantropist, that would make it even sexier for me. I don’t know how the selection goes but would love that to be taken into count.

    Second, I have yet to decide what’s exactly Kim’s style, cause to me she is somewhat inconsistent when it comes to her dressing. She is really beautiful and has a gorgeous body but I think she could’ve rocked the runway version better, with the right fit it would be the red carpet moment she needed.

    I hope she and her stylist start thinking more of how to give ideas to beautiful curvy women like Kim out there of how to dress their figure.

    • Mari September 3, 2014 at 9:51 pm #

      the publicists buy the awards.

  13. Rafael Almeida September 3, 2014 at 3:05 pm #

    For me she looks perfect as always, omg, only she can do it.

  14. Maria September 3, 2014 at 2:49 pm #

    I’d say that the runway dress would have been 1000x nicer, but I’m sure she would have been busting out of it just as badly on top or not worn underwear or something. This look is just pure trash. She’s never going to dress for the body she has.

  15. elena September 3, 2014 at 1:26 pm #

    She is not serious right??????

    • Jerusa September 3, 2014 at 2:04 pm #

      Let´s hope she is.. lol
      We cant deny that she is pretty and has an amaaaazing figure but dresses like a porn star, too bad

      • julyol1972 September 3, 2014 at 5:57 pm #

        Well…she is a porn star, so I guess she’s doing what she knows to do best.

        This outfit – if I can call a bustier covered in bubble wrap an outfit, looks absolutely horrible on her.

    • Jerusa September 3, 2014 at 2:04 pm #

      Let´s hope she is.. lol
      We cant deny that she is pretty and has an amaaaazing figure but dresses like a porn star, too bad

  16. Saudin September 3, 2014 at 1:25 pm #

    JEALOUS PEOPLE! That pretty much sums up the hate behind peoples negative comments about her. She always looks great, in this occasion fabulous. You’d be happy to look half as good as she does.

    • Lee ann September 3, 2014 at 3:06 pm #

      Sorry Saudin but I have no desire to look like a cartoon. I would however be happy to look half as good as Charlie Theron or Diane Kruger . I have no desire to look like a pint size Queen of Trash.

      • nico September 3, 2014 at 5:17 pm #


        You would kill for her glowing exotic olive skin and lush long hair. No one would turn down that down.

        • Lee ann September 3, 2014 at 5:55 pm #

          Personally I would turn it down. I Prefer blonde blue eye tall porcelain looks – sorry nothing beats Grace Kelly. Sorry. I don’t like artificial beauty. But I am not commenting on her facial appearance I am noting her style and inability to dress for her body type.

        • Mari September 3, 2014 at 9:50 pm #

          that exotic skin is more like self tanner.
          She is/was naturally pretty, but first, she is famous for nothing, she is a rich but not an accomplished woman. She cannot even dress well, she is always bursting/busting out of every outfit.
          It’s like a joke, abut sadly, she and her husband believe their own hype, and believe me that she likes black men has nothing absolutely to do with her bad taste in clothing.
          If her husband is dressing her, then she should tell him to wear these awful combos himself.

        • Amy September 5, 2014 at 6:41 pm #

          Lush long hair? She uses extensions…..surely a devoted fan like you would know that much

    • AB September 3, 2014 at 3:21 pm #

      I personally have no desire to be anything like Kim Kardashian.Just because you’re not a frothing at the mouth fan of a certain celeb doesn’t mean that you’re jealous of them, Kim,Kanye,Rita Ora et all are such fashion try hards that they end up looking like fashion jokes. They just don’t have when it comes to fashion and no amount of money can buy it.

      • nico September 3, 2014 at 5:19 pm #

        Rita Ora is not a fashion joke. She is taken seriously by everyone in fashion.

        • AB September 3, 2014 at 5:57 pm #

          They want her for her celebrity not for her fashion sense.

  17. AB September 3, 2014 at 1:05 pm #

    Kim and Kanye try so hard to be fashion icons but like Rita Ora they just don’t have IT.
    Money can’t buy style or good taste.

  18. MEME September 3, 2014 at 11:28 am #

    My Eyes! I don’t know what this is supposed to be but she needs to stop taking fashion tips from Kanye. She looks a mess, and she ruined that dress.

  19. nico September 3, 2014 at 11:21 am #

    I have read through the comments and it looks like people ( just like MTV awards ) do, deep down like what she is wearing, not to mention, she kills the hair and makeup. She looks good. She is not the worse dress; Ellie Goulding and Cara Delevigne look way worse, and they are meant to more ‘ respected ‘

    • Lee Ann September 3, 2014 at 1:21 pm #

      Nico are you reading the same comments I am? Out of 40 odd comments I think there are only 2 positive . As far as comparing her to the other badly dressed all I can think of is the expression : in the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king.

    • Amy September 5, 2014 at 6:40 pm #

      Nico, pls take your Kardashian worshipping and get on her blog. It’s because of people like you she’s getting popular

  20. nico September 3, 2014 at 11:19 am #

    I don’t hate her. Life is to short to hate someone because of THEIR CHOICES. She made a sex tape and turned it into an empire. Many people hating on her, would take that chance of fame. Many people hating on her, have done a lot worse. She is trying to make it as a star and she working hard at it. A LOT OF POPLE HATE HER cps she dates African American men – yes! That s huge part of why she is RIPPED TO shreds. She is not an offensive, rude or drugged crazy person. She has not broken any laws. She done the sex tape….but a lot of women and even men sleep with people to get to the top.

    The clothes: I like the dress…I would say it fits the sexy, but glam look she was going for; she won GQ woman of the year so this has enough naughty for the admiring men. She is trying hard to make fashion choices. Even though, her body is short and curvy she is showing that you can wear high end pieces and look good. She never looks ugly. I have never seen an ugly picture of her.

    PS:FC, will you star featuring Little north on here? North has Saint laurent bags and Dr. Martens.

    • Stel September 3, 2014 at 11:26 am #

      Yes, but she can’t wear dresses like that because her body looks so unflattering!! It’s ugly and tacky, this is not chic.. And she was awarded “woman of the year”.. FOR WHAT??? She’s a nothing that has lots of maney and no taste at all.. I’m tired of seeing her boobs or legs because they’re so unflattering..

    • MEME September 3, 2014 at 11:31 am #

      I honestly I wouldn’t do what she did for fame, despite what money and success she has had with her show. She is still seen as a joke. Some people have standards, just don’t like to celebrate mediocrity, that doesn’t make them a “hater” at all.

    • Larissa September 3, 2014 at 11:45 am #

      I don’t hate her either. I also don’t give a damn who she dates. I just hate her style or lack of it.

    • Lee Ann September 3, 2014 at 12:15 pm #

      She could date Mickey Mouse for all I care and FC if you do show Little North because her parents have the vulgarity to by her a Chanel bag I would be disgusted.

    • julyol1972 September 3, 2014 at 5:54 pm #

      No one hates Kim, they just have no respect for her. Add the fact that she’s able to score designer duds, and then wear them so atrociously accounts for a lot of the derision sent her way. But no one actively hates her…life is too short!

  21. Charlotte September 3, 2014 at 11:07 am #

    i feel kind of awkward saying this after reading all the other comments but i think she looks amazing here!!! dress is incredible, and she is sticking to her own style

  22. Maddy September 3, 2014 at 11:03 am #

    I blame Kanye.

  23. Stel September 3, 2014 at 10:23 am #

    Dear God! Enough! She’s not sexy, someone tell her that because our eyes can’t stand it anymore

  24. Noemi September 3, 2014 at 10:05 am #

    Such a beautiful dress ruined. Why did Ralph & Russo agree to do this? I’m really tired about this and I must say that I admire Dolce&Gabbana who lend their clothes only to people they like or think they can bring positive publicity to them (at least, that’s what I read).
    I only like the hair, she has beautiful hair, that’s sure.
    And I think that probably there were many other women that could be featured instead of her.

  25. jenny September 3, 2014 at 9:30 am #

    Tacky and cheap.
    Don’t expect me to believe this is couture!

    Slut*y mermaid chic?

  26. Iva September 3, 2014 at 9:18 am #

    I like the runaway version of the dress.
    I’ll stop at this. 🙂

  27. easyBlake September 3, 2014 at 9:00 am #

    Hmm, I like the bodysuit, but not the skirt. However, she’s worn things like the original dress several times, so the modification is, at least, different?

  28. Lee Ann September 3, 2014 at 8:50 am #

    This is just wrong on so many levels and says so much that we as a society pay attention and reward her for this level of trash.

  29. Alina September 3, 2014 at 7:42 am #

    I like the idea of the dress and I would have been OK with the cleavage if the rest of the gown had been lined.

  30. Fiona - Perth September 3, 2014 at 7:36 am #

    She looks like Barbarella but not in a good way. I wish she had tried the original red carpet version as it looks more elegant. The pneumatic bustier thing is just so in your face – I guess that is just her style. I don’t like it. Everything is always a size too small which makes her look like she is about to spill out of out of it or the fabric split when she sits down.

  32. moonbeam September 3, 2014 at 6:09 am #

    FC: you’re giving an objective PC account of what she’s wearing. What is your opinion about how she looks? I checked the earliest posts of this blog when you started years ago. Back then you used to give your unabashed and sometimes harsh opinions of what you thought celebrities looked like but far too often nowadays you write posts like the one above where you basically tell us what we can already see with our own 2 eyes (“She accessorized with embellished Tom Ford sandals and a selection of diamond bangles, further enhancing the look with relaxed, pretty waves and a nude lip”). What is your critique, your subjective opinion?

    • easyBlake September 3, 2014 at 9:02 am #

      Rachel Watkins posted this, but maybe Catherine (FC) will chime in . . . I want to bet it’s not quite to her tastes? 🙂

    • kane September 3, 2014 at 9:24 am #

      I have to admit I noticed the same. FC, you don’t have to justify why you feature a certain look of course–you have done so in the past, saying you find a person’s style or a certain look interesting and those you don’t you wouldn’t feature. This is much appreciated. However, you deliberately brought up the debate whether Kim should be featured on this blog or not, so I do wonder why this particular look? Because there’s a whole series of looks from this particular award show, because you find it looks great, because you find it looks terrible? I don’t mean to insinuate anything but is it the traffic that these divisive posts (Rita or the Duchess of Cambridge might be other examples) tend to get? I love this blog, have been coming here for quite some time now, and this isn’t meant as an attack–if I don’t like a look or someone’s style I’m happy to scroll on and I tend to do this on Kim posts (I actually tend to read caption and comments because I am interested in what people see in a certain look, but with no interest in starting anything I tend/try to keep my mouth shut). I am, however, genuinely confused about this post with this, to my mind, absolutely hideous look and had hoped for a bit more of context, information and opinion in the text accompanying the picture. Keep up the good work, FC.

      PS. Ah, just before sending off I noticed that Catherine herself hasn’t actually posted this and my question may be better directed to Rachel. However, as owner of and chief contributor to this blog, I assume, FC will have given some sort of directive as to how to treat a Kim appearance and therefore my general request still stands: I personally would very much appreciate a bit more of an opinionated post than mere neutral description when it comes to someone as polarising as Kim. Thank you.

      • Gemma Rockets September 3, 2014 at 11:20 pm #

        I always take a ‘neutral’ critique like this as the author’s (polite) way of saying she doesn’t really like something.
        And I think, especially after the poll, that if RCFA didn’t include Kim on her list of those who attended the awards, a lot of people would have been screaming out wanting to know why she WASNT covered.
        In other words a damned if you do, damned if you don’t scenario.

    • Vivian September 4, 2014 at 1:15 am #

      I don´t think this is the opinion we are used to. She looks oh so tacky, it freaks me out when I see her pictures posted in this blog.

      • msj September 4, 2014 at 7:01 am #

        The ubiquitous and overexposed Kardashians have already invaded every aspect of media. Glad this blog was a refuge from KK ‘news’ until now.

        • Maddy September 4, 2014 at 10:13 pm #

          Ah yes. I’d love to know what changed? Is it all about hits and clicks or did Kim’s Vogue cover and Kendall’s modeling gigs give them any kind of fashion cred?

  33. pinksugar September 3, 2014 at 5:44 am #

    She looks cheap and trashy as per usual. I don’t know why she thinks King Kanye is so smart in the fashion department when he sends her out looking like this. Sad part is it wouldn’t take much help to make her look amazing. She is a beautiful woman with a great figure. She just keeps clothing herself so tastelessly. Cover the boobs and butt for once and wear something that is actually your size Kim, would make a world of difference.

  34. Peony September 3, 2014 at 5:36 am #

    Hideous. The original would have been so much better on her – or on J.Lo.

  35. Yeliz September 3, 2014 at 4:56 am #

    I shouldn’t be surprised that this looks so tacky. This has to be one of her worst looks.

  36. Valentina September 3, 2014 at 4:53 am #

    To me, she looks like a little girl playing dress up with some curtain.

  37. Pedro September 3, 2014 at 4:32 am #

    Fantastic sandals! I love it

    Everything else looks tacky

  38. m September 3, 2014 at 4:11 am #

    she is so tacky… one person who truly turns all designer outfits cheap… even a H bag can’t save her…

  39. Nat39 September 3, 2014 at 3:43 am #

    The boobage, the sheerness, the tacky bodysuit…she has no idea how to dress her curvaceous body – she cheapens it instead.

    • Larissa September 3, 2014 at 9:11 am #

      You are so right, “cheapen” is the key word here..a body like hers has so much pontential expecially when it comes to gowns but needs to be handled carefully, with all those curves it’s easy to go from sexy to “in your face” but at this point I don’t think she will ever learn….

  40. Jamie September 3, 2014 at 3:43 am #

    I actually really like this look, it’s very fashion forward and her figure looks great!

  41. Cássia September 3, 2014 at 3:43 am #

    She should have worn the runway version, but it’s a bold choice nonetheless

  42. Courtney Klein September 3, 2014 at 3:43 am #

    It’s the middle of the night here in UK and now I’m going to have nightmares all night. This is the scariest thing I have seen in a long time. Sad.

  43. Nat September 3, 2014 at 3:39 am #

    She looks terrible. Nothing would save this look. What was she thinking? Doesn’t she has a mirror? Honestly I thought you would not post this look bc of how dreadful it is.

  44. Brice September 3, 2014 at 3:34 am #

    The original is so much better – that’s just Fug. #whenwillkimyegoaway

  45. Fiona-Brasil September 3, 2014 at 3:27 am #

    The one’s who liked Amber Rose on the VMA must be thrilled with this look.A look fit for a porn star.

  46. J September 3, 2014 at 3:23 am #

    She flip class to crass.

  47. AJ September 3, 2014 at 2:59 am #

    She looks incredible, absolutely love this!

  48. Nicky September 3, 2014 at 2:58 am #

    She looks nice, but the bust as always is too much. It’s something I’ll have to learn to ignore, much like Fan Bingbing’s stacked platforms.

  49. Christine September 3, 2014 at 2:56 am #

    My eyes are insulted. Way too much of too much

        I agree with you as usual Christine. Kim makes everything she wears tacky.

        • ayatlaw September 4, 2014 at 6:04 pm #

          Oh my!~ Tacky Tacky Tacky. I CAN’T with Kim. No style.

          • Guest September 4, 2014 at 8:28 pm #

            I totally agree. The model looks fantastic but Kardashian (as expected) looks tacky and this really is not an outfit for her murderously huge ass. I dare not imagine how bad she must have looked from the back. The only thing that looks right at least from the distance is her hair.

    • Larissa September 3, 2014 at 8:57 am #

      Totally agree with you Christine! Also you crack me up every single time with your comments 🙂

      • Christine September 3, 2014 at 2:14 pm #

        Aww thanks. Haha I try my best!
