Kim Kardashian channels Carmen Electra in vintage dress
Kim Kardashian scoured the fashion archives and emerged in a vintage Stephen Sprouse dress straight out of the designer’s Spring/Summer 1998 ready-to-wear collection. Previously worn by celebrities like Carmen Electra and Kate Moss, the white silk briefs are classic elegance from Kardashian’s ankles down to her waist. The remaining 10% of the strapless dress takes a risque turn as the skirt arches into a backless strapless that covers less skin than a bikini top.
“You love me for me, okay?” Kardashian captioned photos of the dress on Instagram Thursday. Fanning out across her chest and landing just below her arms, the bustier defied gravity, clinging to Kardashian’s curves with nothing but a sheer thin strap that wrapped around her upper back. Playing off the fact that the dress’ T-shaped bodice resembles a mermaid tail, Kardashian modeled the look with wavy, wet hair in front of a blue marble wall that evoked beach elegance.
Recently, Kardashian — who is dating “SNL’s” Pete Davidson after her divorce from Kanye West — was spotted wrapped up in a caution tape jumpsuit at Balenciaga’s fall 2022 show. Continuing her string of innovative fashion looks, Kardashian also donned a pair of super ripped jeans, which featured lace-up details on the sides – from Ludovic de Saint Sernin’s Spring-Summer 2022 ready-to-wear collection.
