17 Times Kim Kardashian Lit Up a Room

Celebrities Amy Goldman Aug 5, 2016

Kim KardashianAfter spending so many years in the public eye, Kim Kardashian certainly knows how to light up a room. Some people say she gets too much attention, but we ask them, is it so Selfish to make sure the cameras are on you when you always look this good? (Yes, the terrible pun was very much intentional.)

Between her unbeatable self-confidence, fierce fashion sense, and sheer star power, this is one celebrity mom who's got an entire arsenal full of attention-grabbing tools. Take a look at 17 times Kim Kardashian owned the room -- or, in some cases, the red carpet.

1La Dolce Vita

To borrow a phrase from Jennifer Saunders, Kim looked absolutely fabulous while attending a Valentino La Travieta event in Italy earlier this summer. She stunned in her chic white Vivienne Westwood dress, looking every bit the Italian movie star. 


It was perfectly clear during her engagement to Kanye in 2013 that Kim was head over heels in love with her fiancé. That's the kind of smile that can light up a whole room.

4Red Is Her Power Color

Compared her go-to color palette of black, khaki green, and nude, it feels like we rarely catch Kim wearing red. It's a color she looks amazing in though. Just look at how confident and stunning she looked in a flowing red dress while vacationing in Armenia.

5You Remind Me of the Babe

Kim was a total knockout at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards when she wore a fitted black mini-dress that showed off her baby bump. We love how she maintains body confidence no matter what stage of pregnancy she's in. 

7Can't Take My Eyes Off You

Kanye is either overwhelmed by how amazing Kim looks or super worried that her sapphire blue dress is going to fall apart. We're guessing it's a little bit of both. The mom of two looked breathtakingly glam on her way to the 2014 Met Gala with her "Famous" husband. 

8Center of Attention

Kim stole the show when she arrived at a Las Vegas nightclub looking like the physical embodiment of the phrase "va-va-voom." Kim's gal pals both looked great, but they also looked like they were fully aware that all eyes were on Kim.

10We Guess She's Not Flying Coach

A crowd of people freaking out over her presence is just another day at the airport for Kim. She looked ridiculously posh at Los Angeles International in June. Strangely, we don't get the same reaction when we show up to the airport in sweats and any old T-shirt that didn't end up in our suitcase. 

11As Fair as a Compass Rose

Kim stunned in a dreamy rose gold dress at a Condé Nast event in June. The event was held at London's Royal Geographical Society, so we can only imagine Kim fit right in with her fellow geographers.

13 Chandelier

If there ever was a human embodiment of the Sia song "Chandelier," it just might have been Kim in this dazzling crystal-covered dress at Cannes this year. We need to slip on a pair of Ray-Bans just to look at this picture.

14These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For

Kim does her best impression of a super glamorous Jedi knight after filming an episode of Keeping Up with the KardashiansNot that we don't love her typical lingerie-inspired outfits, but it's refreshing to see her wear something with so much fabric. 

16Better Together

Kim never looks more radiant than when she has North by her side. The monochromatically dressed duo was perfectly chic at Kanye's West X Adidas Originals Collection fashion show during NYFW last year.
