After asking her stans on Twitter if she should go for “casual chill vibes” or a “dressy sexy” look, Kim Kardashian West and her husband, Kanye West, both went the route of unfussy and undone. The “wife of Pablo” opted for a body-con dress and simple strappy sandals, while her husband evolved the idea of his popular merch with a shirt emblazoned with the title of his new single, “Famous.” It was a clear departure from last year’s ceremony, when the couple coordinated in shades of sandy brown and military green, though arguably also in a monochromatic vein.
Mrs. West—who is on the presenter lineup this year—hasn’t been shy about flaunting her svelte post-baby body, and the ruching at the waist of her dress was a fresh spin on the corset, a trend that she has been embracing all summer. Her all-black look was a nice counterpoint to her husband’s fresh white ensemble, or what you might call a sartorial last hurrah before Labor Day. After their dazzling appearance at the Met Gala in Balmain, the Wests are proving they can make a statement in the simplest LBD and white tee, too.
