What Was Kim Kardashian Thinking in This VMA Dress?

kim kardashian vmasKim Kardashian is a beautiful woman with a keen sense of fashion. She looks gorgeous at every red carpet event she attends; she looked stunning at her wedding; she looked ... weird at the MTV VMAs Sunday night.

From the neck up, I was all about Kim. Her shiny hair, her neutral-toned makeup, her eyelashes for days. But from the neck down -- especially the back part of the neck down -- what was Kim thinking?

As you can see, Kim was wearing a floor-length, body-conscious, metallic gown from Kaufman Franco. Sexy plunging neckline? Check. Cute little cap sleeves? Check. Flesh-toned mesh back? Wait ... wha?

There's something about nude-colored mesh that I'll never be able to get behind. Unless said look is accompanied by white, lace-up shoes with sharp blades on the bottom, I'm sorry, but I'm against it. I have never been able to lay eyes on a "regular person" wearing this look without immediately thinking, "Ice Capades!"

I loved the general idea of Kim's look -- the shimmery, burnished silver dress with her smoky eyes, long hair, and platform heels, but I wish she just made a few tweaks to the gown. I mean, it's the Video Music Awards! Go a little cray-cray. In addition to covering the back of the dress -- hell, black lace would have even looked better -- I would have loved to have seen Kim in something short. Long is a little formal for the VMAs, if you ask me. Show a little leg, in addition to showing your cleav. It's one of the only awards shows where dressing wild and risque isn't only allowed, it's strongly encouraged.

Ice Capade back aside though, Kim still looked fantastic. I know, shocking. I just hope next year she opts for something a little less ... Skating With the Stars.
