Style Trial | Kim Kardashian’s off-white ensemble for the USC Shoah Foundation 20th Anniversary Gala

Kim Kardashian at the USC Shoah Foundation 20th Anniversary Gala

Did you know Kim Kardashian is about to get married? Kim Kardashian is about to get married. And last night she got in some practice by wearing this bridal-inspired all-white ensemble to the the USC Shoah Foundation 20th Anniversary Gala. You can’t see from these photos, but the skirt has a very long train, so she’d have been able to get in some practice walking down the aisle in it for sure.

For us, the most amazing this about this look is that Kim has obviously picked out a facial expression to go with the outfit, and she rigidly maintained it all night as far as we can tell. Seriously, we’ve examined all of the evidence, and we were unable to unearth even a single photo in which her expression was even slightly different. Witness:

OK, there is this one:

But other than that, same expression, all night. How does she do it? WHY does she do it? Is this expression “in” right now? Is smiling a crime of fashion? We hope not, but absolutely nothing would surprise us, seriously.

Anyway: Kim is wearing a Lanvin skirt, Alexander McQueen shirt and Balmain blazer. Should you wish to re-create this outfit at home, it’s possible, although not necessarily advisable, and you WILL have people constantly asking you where the wedding is. If you must, though, we’d first of all recommend exchanging the satin skirt for a floaty maxi skirt (WITHOUT a train, unless you actually are getting married: most of us don’t want to be dragging our clothes along the sidewalk…), and the high-necked blouse for something a little less severe, like a silk cami. We can’t see what Kim’s wearing on her feet in these photos, and it doesn’t really matter because the skirt will cover your shoes anyway, so all we’ll say is this: PLEASE not Birkenstocks. Because it may only be May, but we’ve already identified our most hated fashion trend of the year…

    I would have liked the look if she has been wearing trousers instead of the skirt, I like her hair and make up.

      I agree about the trousers. In fact when I saw the tux-style jacket I was expecting trousers to go with it. Hair and makeup are nice and understated too, desoite the wooden expression.

    Maybe she is just channeling Victoria Beckham who wore white to the Gala and has now adopted her scowl? I wish both of them would just go away!

    I have to say it’s surprisingly modest for what I would expect of her. Not that that’s a bad thing. I think it’s an interesting touch to have the maxi skirt instead of trousers, dunno if it “works” but it’s creative.

    It comes to something when your facial expression matches your outfit.
    You have to give to Kim, in terms of commitment to the look.
    I think it needs something to bring it in at the waist, and the hem line is too long,for someone so petite.

    For some “crazy” reason I see her and I get this feeling that she’s not comfortable with what she’s wearing and, as we all know, this is never a good thing…
    I mean that she’s like “I’m trying to maintain a serious image here”.
    Of course, that’s just me.
