10 best Kim Kardashian looks

She’s a modern-day style icon and attracts attention with everything she does – and, of course, wears. Read on as we run down 10 of Kim Kardashian’s best, most defining looks.

10. THE BALMAIN
It’s classic Kim, but with a very high fashion twist – this Balmain body-con dress, embellished with pearls, crystals and beads, drew its inspiration from a Fabergé egg belonging to Elizabeth Taylor. Perfectly opulent for Kim.

9. THE LEATHER
Black never has to be boring if you know how to work it. For Kim, that means mixing her favourite material – black leather – with other textures in the same look. Here, a buttery leather jacket paired with a sleek pencil skirt adds up to a fantastic daytime look.

8. THE VA-VA-VOOM
A red-carpet affair calls for a whole lot of glitz and glamour, and Kim chose Jean Paul Gaultier for this year’s Grammys. The heavy metallic silver and gold dress featured a plunging neckline for maximum effect.

7. THE COLOUR BLOCK
Before Kim met Kanye, she often favoured a broad and bold colour palette, as seen in this vibrant mustard yellow gown. A slit to the thigh and a cinched-in waist hit all the hallmarks of a classic high-octane Kardashian look.

6. THE MASCULINE TUX
While she usually goes for outfits that ooze sex appeal, being with Kanye saw Kim experiment with more masculine looks. A tailored and chic black tuxedo while sitting front row showed that the style icon has more tricks up her sleeve than her usual rotation. 

5. THE TONAL DRESSING
Layering various shades of the same colour – here, luxurious camel – can make for a simple and yet super chic look. For Kim, this meant an oatmeal polo neck body-con dress underneath a soft and plush MaxMara coat.

4. THE PRE-KANYE PEPLUM
Back when the Kardashians were just a bunch of down to earth LA sisters, certain items made up the Kardashian uniform, like the peplum. The waist-definer cropped up on skirts, tops and dresses, adding a little extra feminine charm wherever it went.

3. THE BLEACHED BLONDE
There’s no better way to turn heads than a dramatic hair makeover, and this bleached blonde style, debuted by Kim at Paris Fashion Week in March, certainly did the trick – slick, sleek and right on trend.

2. THE MET BALL
She may be known best for simple yet striking separates, but Kim isn’t afraid of a statement print, either. For the 2013 Met Ball, she opted for a tight, full-length Givenchy gown with a riotous floral print and attached glove-sleeves for a little extra sartorial intrigue – all the while heavily pregnant.

1. THE WEDDING DRESS
For her big day with Kanye, only the best would do. That meant Givenchy haute couture, with full-length white lace, a sheer back cut-out detail and a long train and veil to ensure Kim’s romantic and glamorous wedding dress would enter style history.
