8 Times the Kardashians Shocked Us on the Red Carpet
The Kardashians are never strangers to spectacle, and as the younger sisters have grown to grace tabloid pages as well, there are a whole host of shocking fashion moments they have blessed us with. See my top picks from the red carpet below.
1. Kim Kardashian pregnant at the 2013 Met Gala.
When Kanye and a very pregnant Kim walked the Met Gala red carpet in 2013, Kim's Givenchy dress launched a thousand memes, the most popular that she looked like a sofa. Her pulled-back hair and excessive print emphasized her pregnant belly, and whether you loved or hated this look, you definitely remember it.
2. Kendall Jenner's high slits at the 2014 MuchMusic Awards.
Kendall Jenner reminded us all that she's no longer a kid when she walked the red carpet last summer in a Fausto Puglisi dress with slits so high they exposed her pelvic bones on each side. Kendall revealed that her revealing look required ridiculous amounts of body tape to avoid a wardrobe malfunction.
3. Kim's (first!) latex dress at fragrance launch
In the fall of 2014, Kim embraced aaall of her curves in this Atsuko Kudo latex dress with bustier cups. This dress reminded us just how curvy Kim really is, but more importantly, it reminded us how much she doesn't want us to forget it.
4. Kim's dress at the 2015 CFDA Awards.
This Proenza Schouler eyelet dress was definitely a love it or hate it moment for Kim's fashion. This is one of Kim's more covered up looks, but she still manages to show us her curves through the dress's translucent material. Were the feathers a bit much combined with the turtleneck? Maybe. Was it crazy enough for Kim? Definitely.
5. Kylie Jenner at the 2014 American Music Awards.
Okay, so this look isn't exactly radical, until you realize that Kylie is only sixteen here. The youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Kylie had a quick childhood and suddenly began dressing like she was at least 26 at only 16. From her plunging cleavage to that high, high slit, plus her newly-plumped lips and green hair; Kylie was suddenly making waves and we were all paying attention.
6. Kim at the 2015 Met Gala.
This dress was shocking in a good way; the Roberto Cavalli dress was refreshingly flattering following the 2013 Met Gala debacle. But this dress wasn't without it's jaw-dropping moments. The nearly nude and mostly sheer gown used carefully placed crystal embellishments to cover Kim where necessary, and reveal where (at least to her) unnecessary. The train was amazing, but overall her dress was definitely outdone by Rihanna's that night.
7. Kendall at the 2014 Met Gala.
This dress was extraordinarily simple for a Kardashian, and marked Kendall's embarkment on her own respected modeling career in the high fashion world, as well as a more understated and sleek style compared to that of her sisters'. Her Topshop dress bore the influence of Charles James (around whom the theme of the night was focused), and her hair and accessories gave her a classic glamour not usually associated with the Kardashians.
8. Pregnant Kim's third latex dress
When discussing comfortable and flattering maternity wear options, we probably wouldn't put latex on the list. Very recently, Kim showed off her new baby bump in another Atsuko Kudo dress that looked anything but maternity. Not only is Kim clearly unafraid to show off her assets, but she embraces pregnancy as another element of her own sexuality, and we can't help but turn our heads and notice.
