It's not that I don't like Kim K, (I don't really have any opinion about her), but her sense of style is not something I normally admire. She is very into tight-tight-tight and I am into tailored and drapey. I realize that we have different body types and that one should take risks with fashion, but I will not be seen in a Herve Leger bandage dress in the foreseeable future. But, that doesn't mean Kim K doesn't look good in one.
Any-hew, when I saw photos of her on two different occasions wearing items I actually liked, I was shocked! Disparate from her normal outfits, (IMHO) these looks are actually great:
I am not sure how I feel about the shredded scarf, but I like the color. And I love the tailored-yet-flowy look of the trousers and the jacket. The piled-high bun is Olsen-esque, yes?
I love her jacket in this look (always an obsession with structure + slouch for me) and her sunglasses are very fun.
I love street-style blogs like The Sartorialist and Face Hunter, but I wonder if the street-style shots of celebrities on sites like Vogue Diaries (where I saw the photos I used for this post) are too invasive? As much as I love that celebrities have access to runway pieces and then style them in "real life" ways, it's not like the celebrities on that site (and SO many other websites) have given consent to have their photos taken. What do you think?
