Kim Kardashian forced to hop up stairs as VERY TIGHT gown restricts her movement
MILAN, ITALY: "Beauty is pain" is perhaps the adage Kim Kardashian lives by. Known for her extreme fashion practices, the 41-year-old does whatever it takes to be a style icon. As a result, comfort often takes a backseat in most of her outfits, including her latest "fashion struggle" - climbing up a flight of stairs.
On Monday, September 26, the SKIMS co-founder shared a blooper video on her Instagram stories showing how she had to jump up the stairs after her tight corset gown did not allow any room for proper movement. Kim wore the silver Dolce and Gabbana corset gown for the D&G after party during Milan Fashion Week.
Taking to Instagram stories, Kim's hilarious video showed her all decked out in the shimmery silver figure-hugging gown which featured a lace-up corset and similar laces on the sides. Her platinum blonde hair was styled in a loose 50s throwback messy updo, with hair tendrils framing her face. She accessorized her sequin gown with a matching micro crystal hand clutch and silver neckpiece.
Her Dolce and Gabbana gown was so tightly figure-hugging that it severely restricted her gait, so much so that she could be seen walking in a duck-like fashion. It was also very narrow at the hem, making it impossible for her to climb a flight of stairs comfortably while wearing her four-inch matching silver stilettos. As a result, she grabbed the handrail with both hands and jumped up one stair.
The video then cut to a close-up shot of her walking up the stairs with two people supporting her on either side. The narrow hem in addition to her high heels made the task a herculean one. Not once did she make an attempt to hoist up her dress which would give her more space and enable her to walk more comfortably. At one point, a woman from her entourage could be seen lifting a portion of the dress above her ankles.
Concluding her night of duck-like waddles, Kim's struggles did not end there. The final shot of the video showed the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star jumping up to climb the backseat of her car. Even then she could not really sit up straight and lay in a semi-upright position. Nevertheless, Kim showed her sense of humor about it all by pairing the video with funny audio.
Notably, this is not the first time the 'SKKN By Kim' founder has gone to extremes for her fashion looks. Earlier this year, Kim lost 16 pounds to fit into the famous 'Happy Birthday Mr President' gown worn by Marilyn Monroe. She faced massive public backlash for donning the iconic dress, including subsequent reports that the dress endured noticeable damage after its outing during the MET Gala.
