As we’ve said innumerable times before, when Kim Kardashian latches on to a winning style combination she’s loathe to let it go, turning the look into her go-to fashion uniform. Post-baby Saint it was all about unitards and fur, while the summer months called for spandex bike shorts and lucite boots, and after her Paris Fashion Week robbery, she returned to the comfort of waist-length hair, giant sweatpants, and more Yeezy booties.
And now it seems the reality star has also found her platonic ideal when it comes to her red carpet ensembles, making an increasingly rare appearance on the step-and-repeat in a dress that’s giving us some serious déjà vu. The mobile mogul has been keeping a very low profile lately, but she made an exception to attend the Fashion Los Angeles Awards on Sunday, walking the red carpet in a gown that bares a striking resemblance to the one she wore for the Ocean’s 8 cameo she filmed back in January. Makes sense given that both dresses are pieces from the Givenchy couture archives – this time from the brand’s Fall 2011 couture collection – and designer Ricardo Tisci has long been a favorite since creating her custom wedding gown.
The dress she wore to this award ceremony featured all of the sartorial signatures of the ideal Kim Kardashian dress. There was the fully sheer skirt, of course, complete with taupe, high-rise briefs worn underneath, and heavy rococo 3D-embellishment throughout the torso. She ditched her usual Cher hair in favor of a wet, slicked-back lob like the one she wore to the MTV VMAs, but kept the contouring she favors.
