Kim Kardashian's See-Through White Dress Is Just the Latest This Week. Is She Sending Us a Message?

So, think Kim Kardashian is excited to be a bride again? Since the news of her engagement to Kanye West went (very) public, the star has been sticking to one color scheme. You guessed it: bridal white.

And while the pure hue may connote innocence and light, her dress selection paints a much more va-va-voom picture. For a Wednesday night appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Kardashian made sure that her giant rock wouldn’t be the only thing on people’s minds, wearing a completely sheer lace appliqué dress (center) over a black bra and briefs. (Think she wants you to know she’s got her bikini body back? Nah, she wouldn’t be so transparent.) Black sandals and sideswept waves finished the look.

And that makes the third white dress in six days for the newly engaged bombshell. For her 33rd birthday party at Tao Saturday (right), Kim brought the ka-POW in a white lace bustier dress with sheer panels that needs to be seen from all sides to be fully appreciated.

And two days earlier (left), she picked a curve-hugging white turtleneck dress that flashed a strip of skin at her abs.

This isn’t the first time she’s relied heavily on the “ivory, cream, eggshell and beige” section of her closet to celebrate her excitement at tying the knot — her first party dress post-engagement to Kris Humphries was notably bridal. And now we’re thinking, if she’s got so many white dresses on hand, maybe we don’t need to do wedding dress predictions at all. Any of the above would look great in a fighter jet.

What do you think of Kardashian’s sexy white dress parade?

Tacky, as always. She is attractive, she does not need to wear such provocative clothing. Give it a rest Kim!

Katie on

Really with this person?! New NEWS PLEASE!!!!!!! Someone other then Kim Kardshian!!! I’m unfollowing because of this! Ugh!!

Paula on

Why arent people this hard on J.Ho, oops I mean J.Lo?!?

Franci on

Yeah, it’s her middle finger up to the rest of the world! Why is this the top story? People – you are better than this!

Rachel on

She’s fit, beautiful, and classy! All the power to her! Suck it up haters!

A ‘ WHITE ‘ wedding dress?

vinn on

A WHITE wedding dress?

Lissa on

Rachel honey…you obviously are not familiar with the definition of class…..bless your little heart……

Tired on

So she likes to dress up…but why does everything need to be skin-tight all the time?? It’s really old now.

200 POUNDS???

Reggie on

What a tacky person. Black underwear under a see through lace dress. It just shows how tacky she really is.If anyone thinks this is classy and she is a classy person, then you really need to get out and about to find what real class is.

Jane on

Yes, the message is “I have absolutely no sense of style or one ounce of class”.

sally on

Can someone please tell me when does Kim ever think about her baby instead of herself…Really shouldn’t the baby be the #1 priority right now?

Jerry on

It’s a shame what she has done to her upper lip. It’s too big for her nose. She has had her nose done and it looks it. She looked good before all the messing around. She has youth on her side, but eventually she’ll be hyper injected like her mother…and that ain’t pretty.

Oli- on

Seriously, it’s a not a weight thing, but she needs to buy her size and cover up a bit. Sexy doesn’t equal showing skin.

Debbie on

I wish all the Kardashions and Jenners would drop off the face of the earth! They all have NO class, and are a waste of air. She is never with her baby. It’s more important to be “seen” With all their money why don’t they have charities helping animals & people. They are the richest worthless family!!!

NoDoubt! on

go away already!

Sammi on

Omg stop already….so annoying that you talk about her everyday

Ryry on

She looks like she got a nose job. Her face look pinched. Very different from her pre-baby look.

Christa on

As many times as she’s been married, this “engagement white” shtick is old and tired. She’s very attractive but she needs to rehab her image — get a charity, show some personality, etc.

Alli on

ANY Kardashian wearing a white wedding dress is laughable. Except maybe Bruce once he is finished with his sex change.

Debra on

OMG, are we going to be subjected to every blow by blow detail of the upcoming nuptials. I’m sick of it already! Enough … please… go away!

Sylvia Tarvers Weston on

I’m over women over the age of 25 wearing their hair parted in the middle and just hanging down each side of their face. Nothing sexy about that look.

Jim Evans on

She’s so tacky. Could someone please tell her she’s Mother now?! You can still be sexy & not expose your body in sleazy outfits.

Janet on

People magazine you used to have more class than this. How sad. Someone needs to tell Kim Kardashian that it is totally tasteless and classless to have a big white wedding for your 3rd go around to an altar. She is making a mockery of the word marriage.

Guest on

What did she do to her face? She used to be so pretty

Carol on

Already done by Jessica Biel (sp), but WAAAAAAYYYYY classier.

Guest on

White-cuz she’s so virginal???

chuck on

There is something very sad and desperate about her. She appears depressed, and quite fat. The plastic surgery on face, lips cheeks was a disaster. Looks like a cheap Beyonce wannabe,..but opps hey K your not black. Some tell Kenyaee

GG on

Another walk down the aisle is ridiculous. Doing so in a white dress is positively hysterical. Why won’t this girl just go away?
She looks good for a new mom, but her clothing is always as tacky as she is.

Guest on

She is starting to look like Joan Rivers!!!

denverpeet on

I think what she is trying to say is she wears her clothes to damned TIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!

denverpeet on

She I trying to tell us that she wears her clothes too TIGHT!



Guest on

White…..really??? She would look far better in something Champaign with a little pink hue, but since I’m not a famous colorist far be it from me to point that out LOL

joy on

Who cares. go away kim kardashian. Go away. So sick of you. Blah; blah, blah.

Carter on

Kim has such wide hips.

Carter on

She needs one of those “Wide Load” signs.

Claudia on

Well, she still looks good after baby…

Lynnemezzo on

Why does she always wear clothes that are either two sizes too small or that she is falling out of?

Mvue1 on

I don’t get it. People always have something negative to say about Kim but she have the most followers on Instagram, Twitter, fb…etc…
I think it’s fine if she wants to dress in whatever she wants. Honestly, I’m sure she works very hard to lose the baby weight so she deserves to wear what makes her happy. I just wish women would talk less negative about each other.

Pat Brown on

She looks fine, now let’s all move on, she’s really not that interesting. I see documentary on Lisa Lopes from TLC, I never paid a lot of attention to her when she was alive, I wish I would have, she was very insightful and very smart, and with all her problems very likeable, very REAL, after seeing what I did, the rest of these mutations don’t come any close

Polly Pocket on

I just threw up in my mouth

ana on

@Lissa: I’m with you. You read my mind.

ana on

@Lissa: I’m with you. You read my mind!


Well she isn’t a virgin in any 3 holes….put the white away Kim…

Jan on

Whya i she doing to her face? Its strange looking now. I will admit the first round of cosmetic surgery improvedher appearance. She was prettier. But now her face is getting strange. Very skinny at the bottom and too angular. It also doesn’tmove. She is getting so many fillers she looks tired, as well. She is going to be like Lil Kim before long.

Angela L Manley on

She looks like a centaur.

Danielle on

Kim is now the bread winner of the house….Kanje have to agree with her on what ever she wants to do with her body. she is the money maker…..but not for long…people are tired of her already.

OMG on

Note to Kim: Who is telling you that you look good in those outfits? Not one is attractive. NOT ONE!! Do you think white makes you look virginal or something? If you’re taking fashion advice from that turkey baster daddy you need to do just the opposite. You can’t do any worse at TJMaxx!

PapaBruce on

Girl, I told you not to do that blonde thing. It’s worse than your sister’s marriage, your mother’s makeup or my plastic surgery.

Zeze on

So much for no white after Labor Day…

Dina on

Honestly, she should wear beige or light brown for her next wedding dress. The meaning of the white wedding dress color, does not suit her at all…

Lolly on

Wide hips do not make for a sexy bod – she’s disproportionate to her height – then add the big boobs – wow, I don’t see anything curvaceous about her. She’s just a short, large narcissistic person – so why do we spend so much time on her?

Kiwii on

Mooooooo cow!!!
