Kim Kardashian is making the media rounds to promote her role in Tyler Perry’s Temptation, but so far the mother-to-be has found herself fielding questions from interviewers who seem much more interested in her maternity style.
During an appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael yesterday, Kardashian — wearing a Lanvin dress and Christian Louboutin stilettos (pictured above) — recalled her sister Kourtney’s warning that a baby bump would make her a fresh target for fashion critics. “She said, ‘All of the criticism you get when you’re pregnant or a new mom is insane, just wait.'” Kim remembered.
It seems Kourtney’s pregnancy prophecy has come true.
Case in point: “I wore this black leather skirt the other day. People are like, ‘Why are you wearing black? Are you ashamed? Are you trying to hide it?’ It was tight! I was trying to show the bump. [They said], ‘You’re trying to suffocate the baby!'” Kim said of the backlash over a recent outfit. “Everything I do, it seems to be crazy.”
Earlier today, at a lunch thrown in her honor by DuJour magazine, Kardashian played it a little cooler when asked about all the negative attention being paid to her recent fashion choices.
“For maternity style, it’s so subjective. It’s just whatever makes you feel comfortable, whatever you really like,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “I still want to have my style… so I love the high-waisted skirts because they go right above the belly but they fit and still kind of show your shape. I think it’s really beautiful to show the shape of your belly when you’re pregnant. So I opt for things like that, that are a little bit tighter instead of looser.”
What do you think of Kim’s pregnancy style?
