I have yet to really jump on the faux fur bandwagon, and I'm not sure if I ever will. I feel awkward wearing something that's supposed to resemble one of my favorite cuddly animal friends. So you can understand why seeing Kim Kardashian in this Jahaanara Gilet Lamb Fur Vest (in other words, it's real fur, not faux) sort of skeeves me out. It also just doesn't make sense. Kim is usually so much more fashionable than this!
The 31-year-old style icon wore this little getup out to dinner with hubby Kris Humphries in Los Angeles the other night. The fact that the vest is hideous is enough of a fashion crime. But trust me, that's not even the worst part.
The price of the vest is $1,930. Come ON, woman! I understand that designer items cost big bucks, but why would you pay this much money to look like a woolly mammoth?
Plus, the rest of the outfit is an eyesore too. From the hat and the fishtail braid to the over-the-knee boots, our girl looks like a mobster. I've never thought this before, but Kim K. is also channeling Jennifer Lopez a little here. You know, the "Jenny From the Block" J. Lo. I think it's the big hoop earrings. Whatever it is, it's freaking me out.
The designer vest also makes her seem SO much bigger than she actually is. Trust me, I know! I saw her just last week in person. If you're aware of the fact that you're going to have a bazillion photos taken and posted across the Interwebs, why would you want to add 50 pounds? I'm not saying the reality diva needs to look good all the time. But I've never heard of a woman who wants to look larger than she is.
On the pro side, I bet Kim is super warm, and the monstrosity covering her up is uber-cozy. But me? I'd rather wear a Snuggie in public any day.
Would you wear a shaggy lamb's wool vest like Kim's?
