What would Kanye think? Kim Kardashian pays homage to former style with pink PVC dress
It looks like Kim Kardashian stepped into a style time machine.
Mrs Kanye West ditched the signature demure attire she's adopted since he romance with the rapper blossomed and went back to basics during her Australia trip.
For a promotional appearance in Melbourne, she wore a blush pink figure-hugging PVC dress, more reminiscent of Kim K in 2007 than a high fashion it girl and FROW staple.
It marks her second trip Down Under in less than two months, but this time she left husband Kanye West and little North at home in LA.
"Last time we were here we spent time at the Brisbane Zoo and we loved it," she explained. "My husband took my daughter to the Zoo in Los Angeles yesterday and was calling me saying he missed Australia and how jealous he was that I’m here."
Meanwhile, the E! queen is reportedly focused on “cementing herself into Hollywood royalty”.
The 34-year-old reality star’s nude photo shoot with Paper magazine was released November 11 and the cover image, which sees her balancing a champagne glass on her buttocks, quickly went viral.
Kim told fans on Twitter last week she was out to “break the internet” with the sexy editorial and the stunning brunette is said to be elated with how the campaign was received.
“Gone are the days where companies want a good girl, Miss America types,” a source told Hollywood Life. “That’s boring. Kim’s the opposite. She’s smart, sexy, edgy and drop dead beautiful. She’s interesting and polarising and feels that no matter what she does next, people will follow. She knows what she’s doing and it’s only helping her cement herself into Hollywood royalty.”
Although Kim, who shares 17-month-old daughter North with husband Kanye West, is supposedly relishing in the publicity, it’s claimed she is concerned over how her fame might affect family life.
But apparently she is confident professional goals will be met without compromising the safety of her loved ones.
“She’s only worried that after this shoot, her phone will be ringing too much and North [West] won’t be able to sleep,” the insider said. “Kim’s the hottest thing on the planet right now. She’s like Oprah: anything she touches or puts her name to turns into gold. She’s sitting on the throne as we speak and Kanye’s sitting back watching."
