While there is ample evidence showcasing Barbie as the ultimate style inspiration (think Gwyneth Paltrow's cozy fuchsia sweater-skirt set and Selena Gomez's powerful pink power suit), Kim Kardashian is taking the hot pink trend to the next level in the world of fashion.
Making a grand appearance at the twelfth annual LACMA Art + Film Gala in Los Angeles, the SKIMs founder embraced an edgy twist on the beloved Barbiecore phenomenon. She donned a striking neon pink satin gown with a strapless silhouette and an attention-grabbing long train. To add a touch of rebellion, Kim paired the ensemble with contrasting black opera gloves that extended past her elbows and matching black pointed-toe pumps.
However, the true showstopper was the stunning diamond necklace adorning her neck, featuring a teardrop-shaped pendant.
When it came to her glamorous beauty look, Kim opted for a sleek ponytail with textured waves, perfectly complementing her bronzed complexion. She enhanced her overall radiance with long, fluttering lashes and shimmery eyeshadow.
This is not the first instance of Kim embracing the power of pink on the red carpet. Just a few months ago, at the 2023 Kering Caring For Women Gala in New York City, the fashion entrepreneur donned a custom baby pink Balenciaga gown adorned with crystals. The figure-hugging dress boasted long sleeves and a mock neckline, layered over a flesh-toned panta-bodysuit. Completing the look, Kim painted her nails in the same delicate shade of light pink as her gown.
