Kim Kardashian vs. Kris Jenner: Family Faceoff!

Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner FaceoffLandov; FilmMagic

These days, Kim Kardashian is more likely to be spotted in bump-friendly outfits than her signature form-fitting sheaths, but that doesn’t mean she’s letting her expensive designer dresses just sit in her closet.

In fact, she’s playing de facto stylist, outfitting mom Kris Jenner for Monday’s E! upfronts in a $3,690 red lace Valentino number that Kardashian wore last May to promote her fragrance in London.

No slouch in the style department, Jenner gave the number her own spin, adding matching red pointy-toe pumps and a black woven clutch to her look, and finishing the look off with high-shine red lips.

Though the Kardashians’ net worth is estimated to be in the tens of millions, the family never lets a good look go to waste, recycling many of their outfits amongst themselves, maternity wear included.

Both look horrible. They should be arrested!

Lilly on

I don’t particularly care for these folks but I will weigh in and cast my vote for Kris Jenner. There, I wrote it!

Angie on

Can you say “trying too hard”???

Mira on

I think Kris Jenner is trying very hard to look like the fourth Kardashian sister.

Julie on

The dress is pretty, it takes on a different look with each person who wears it.

Dee on

It’s pretty and ladylike and looks good on both.

kyliekoo on

First off, Kris is crossing her legs like she was going to sneeze and had to hold in a pee pee leak. And then, why are her legs so brown but not her face? Kim should just go off somewhere (like a deserted island) so we don’t have to see her everyday (come on People, there are more interesting people than her).


This may be the same style dress but it is not the same dress. Moms dress is significantly bigger. Don’t think original dress has 6 inch seams to let out!

Les on

The amount of press given this family is sickening, they are nothing of any importance so why the media coverage? The entire family got popular over a vulgar sex video, now there’s a claim to fame. Wish they would all just disappear forever.

Personally, I think there is something weirdly competitive and a bit creepy about a woman wearing the same outfits as her grown daughters. While I think it’s fine to draw inspiration from the style of others, I would never want to wear my daughter’s outfits. We are different people, we are at vastly different stages in life, and it just makes me feel icky to think about trying to look like her. I love when women are proud and comfortable enough to embrace who they are and where they are at in life.

VB on

Ugh. Just ugh.

Sandy on

With so many exquisite dresses in the world, and so much money at Mama Kardashian’s disposal, why would she feel a need to dress in the same outfit as her daughter?

Stacia on

The dress is Valentino, anyone would look good in it. Although, Kim does looks better in it.

janet on

hate everythig about those 2!

amylia on

Kris looks better. Kris lets the dress flow at the bottom instead of taking it in so its skin tight like Kim did. Skin tight is not always better especially with such a classic delicate dress. Kris wore it just right.

Eugene on


jenn on

THey both look great! Kim looks especially tall in this photo.

Shanna on

Gotta agree with Mira…Kris is trying way to hard to be the 4th sister….

Tiffany on

I think Kris looks good. I would have worn nude heels though.

Danya on

No way is that the same dress! The dress Kris is wearing is a couple of sizes larger than the one Kim wore. It would require some serious alterations for both of them to wear the same dress.

Terri on

sally, I agree with you 100%!!

Jordan on

LOL on Sally’s comment….Rotfl….

Jenn on

Is Kris pregnant too? She looks big!

Connie` on

Who in the world wrote this article? Since when is Kim wearing “bump-friendly outfits”?! Everything I see her in, including the picture posted today in that horrible black neck-plunging dress, is not “bump-friendly”. She looks nice in this red dress, I call it the way I see it, but I’m sure Kris is in a new dress, in her own size, of the same style dress. I saw the Ryan Secrest interview (only the last little bit when changing the channel), but Khloe said Kim complians about her whole body hurting during this pregnancy and how hard being pregnant is – well I have some advice to Kim. Relax a little, don’t wear spanks, and wear a nice maternity outfit that comforts the body. Also, wear some flats and give your hips and back a break. Bet you’ll feel great after a few days of maternity wear and being sensible! Big eye roll!

kim on

i like the dress, too bad they had to ruin it by wearing it. kris needs to stop trying to act like shes 30 still. how embarrassing for her kids…

Danielle on

Kris can not compete with her daughter , Kim is beautiful and young, so stop it Kris. you are acting ridiculous. Too much wine is affecting your jugment.

Jane on

Unless that dress is made of very, very stretchy fabric or has very easy to let out seams, it is not the SAME dress, but a similar dress.

dareso on

@Mira- Actually, Bruce Jenner is the fourth Kardashian sister.

gemmagee on

That is a pretty dress and both wore it lovely. Probably one of the classiest item either has worn.

ppp on

very simple. NONE

Dina on

Perfect for someone like Kate Middleton not a Karthrashian..

ppp on

If a mother and daughter r wearing same clothes there is something wrong with at lease one f them……

Norah on

Kris styled it better. Kim is too short and “solid” to be wearing ankle or above ankle straps — she really needs to elongate her legs as much as possible, so lose the gladiators, Kim! (Not to mention that these sandals don’t go with the dress any way!)

Sulndance on

Kris almost looks Aisan in that photo, too much surgery Kris! Yes and her face needs to be spray tanned also, not just her legs. Kris is trying to compete with your MUCH younger daughters.

Nakisha on

Kim looks better in this outfit

Mare on

Kris looks better

Linda on

Kim definitely looks better. She’s younger so she has a better figure.

Besides, red clashes terribly with pink. Bad shoe color choice by Kris.

shadowfax on

Both look good in red.

ellepop on

Dear People,
I triple-dog dare you to go an entire 24 hours without mentioning “Kardashian” or posting their photo on your Web site and to do the same for an entire printed issue! Bet you can’t.

An Entertainment Junkie

Amanda on

It’s a lovely dress. Looks good on both but I think Kim has a leg up on her Mum as I don’t care for the red shoe with it.

Topaz on

I like it with the black shoes, so Kim’s picture gets my vote.

whatever on


PB&J on

Dear People Magazine – WE don’t CARE!

swoowho on

Kris looks appropriate for her age. Kim on the other hand, always tries too hard. She needs to just be herself.

deyonce10265 on


Mary on

Nice dress on both out of 5 best ….give it 4 Chris and 5 kim ……kim is taller..looks good.

Emily on

I like the tailoring of Kim’s better, but the styling of Kris’s better. Those lace-up heels are too much with the lace.

Jessica on

Who wore it better lol ???

Arls on

Who cares

Tina on

That dress is almost $4,000??!!!! That’s just ridiculous. It’s not even floor-length. But I guess if only the wealthy are buying it, then it makes sense.

cheryl on

Kim looks better… I like her shoe color and style. If not black a nude shoe instead of red.

Lisa on

Kim looks better, though it doesn’t look bad on Kris.

Janet Udave on

This family has no shame and frankly should be banned from Hollywood altogether. Sure they look nice, but then they are as shallow and superficial as a bucket of rocks. Boring, boring and totally boring. Move on People to someone more important and worthy of all the overblown adulation.Give us a break for pete’s sake.

Jennie on

Though I’m not a Kardashian fan, I will say I like this dress. I think it’s pretty & feminine, & I think they both wore it well. I would have paired it with different shoes… maybe Kris’ shoes in black? I’m not a big fan of the red-with-different-shade-of-red thing.

kat1129 on

Could Kris’s face be pulled any tighter?

Wm. on

I think it is a tie.

festo africa on

i think kim is better but my galfrd wod be the best
