FAB OR FAIL: Kim Kardashian’s 2012 Angel Ball Blue Balmain Gown & Thierry Mugler Platform Pumps
KimYe is back on US soil! After celebrating Kim’s 32nd bday in Italy, the two jetted back in time to attend the 2012 Angel Ball hosted by Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC on Monday night (October 22). For the black-tie fundraiser, which raises money for cancer research, Kanye finally ditched the leather in favor of a dapper black and white tux, and Kim slipped into a cobalt blue draped Balmain dress with thigh-high slits and a plunging neckline.
A side fishtail braid, Lorraine Schwartz sapphires, and 10″ Thierry Mugler Fall 2011 platform pumps completed her charity ball look.
The dress is a beautiful color but is one size too big for Kim. The excess material around her waist looks like it’s weighing her down and even with the 10″ heels, she’s still not leggy enough to pull off the thigh-high slits. It also doesn’t help that we can see the imprint of her nipple covers through the gown.
On the other hand, her shoes definitely get our FAB stamp of approval.
What do you think? Is this Grecian look Fab or Fail on Kim?
