Who Wore It Better: Balmain S/S 2012
Kim Kardashian vs. Zoë Saldaña vs. Kerry Perry vs. Natasha Poly.
I postulated last week that Kanye West was dressing Kim Kardashian. I'm pretty sure he is, because I have never seen Kim dress so poorly in my life. You know I don't like this girl, but I will give her kudos for dressing to fit her curves. But lately?
This is Kim at the 2012 Cannes Films Festival premiere of Kanye West's short film CRUEL SUMMER, wearing Balmain Spring/Summer 2012. I love the entire Balmain Spring/Summer 2012 collection, but not on Kim The cut of this dress is okay on Kim, but the patterns were meant to be worn on a leaner body type. Further, the colour does nothing for her. Aside: Kim has been looking less and less bronzed of late. Does Kanye not like a fake tan?
Here's Zoë Saldaña in a version of the dress at the COLOMBIANA premiere in August 2011.
This is Katy Perry at Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012 in a similar Balmain design. Ignore the shoes.
A similar version of the dress from the runway on Natasha Poly.
If you can get past the shoes and the hair, I'd give this to Katy Perry. But Natasha and Zoë are a close second. I bet Natasha's version of the dress would have worked better on Kim.
