When one thinks of Kim Kardashian, typically the phrase "low key" isn't the first to pop into one's mind. I think words more like "flashy," "sexy," and "in-your-face" are better suited to describe the star and her sultry style. But according to Kim, she actually is low key. Well, sometimes. See, there's one place on earth that you'll never, ever see the reality star done up. And you'll never see her wearing a speck of jewelry.
The gym! Kim recently sat down with Women's Wear Daily to discuss her jewelry line, Belle Noel Jewelry (yeah, I've never heard of it either), and here's what she had to say on the oh-so-controversial subject of jewels in the gym:
I don’t wear jewelry to work out. I see people working out with their jewelry on. I was leaving the gym yesterday and I didn’t have my ring on and there were photographers. I said to my sister, "Just watch. You will see a story: 'Kim Without Her Ring. Trouble in Paradise.'" And Kourtney said, "But who would ever wear their ring to the gym?" and I said, "You’d be surprised." I see women coming to the gym with earrings on. I can’t do it.
I like it. No jewelry to the gym. This happens to be a rule I certainly abide by (save for tiny little studs that I never take out), but I wouldn't have pegged Kim for a "not done up" gym rat. She's always done up. I mean, I suppose I've seen photos of her in her workout clothes, but I never noticed the lack of sparkly things in the pictures. I would have for sure pegged her as a diamond-clad workout queen. I mean, think about it. When do you not see a Kardashian dressed up?
In other news, I'd like to state that I really dislike it when I see women "dressed up" for the gym. Not only because it makes my ripped sweatpants-wearing ass look even more unappealing, but because I just don't see the point. It's like, aren't you at the gym so you can look good? It seems like a foolish time to put an actual effort into your appearance. Also, one sweats at the gym. One runs and jumps. Aren't things like makeup and jewelry and a beautifully coiffed French twist going to get in the way of all that?
I think so. And apparently so does Kim. Samesies.
Do you wear jewelry to the gym?
