Kardashian critic says ‘Kim’s dress looks like an old curtain,’ but fans disagree
Saying goodbye to summer, Kim Kardashian rocked the new Balenciaga winter collection in a series of photos that accentuate her curves and platinum hair. However, some compared the dress to an “old curtain” before Kim’s fans defended her beauty.
Earlier this year, Kim Kardashian was joined by Justin Bieber and Isabelle Huppert as Balenciaga’s latest ambassadors. It happened a month before Kim and her former husband Kanye West officially divorced. It was a big step for the beauty mogul at the time.
Months later, she made her runway debut at Paris Couture Fashion Week alongside Dua Lipa and former Selling Sunset star Christine Quinn.
The 41-year-old celebrity has since posted dripping photos at Balenciaga. However, her latest Instagram post showcasing the new campaign sparked mixed feelings among Kardashian critics and fans.
Kim wears a new Balenciaga dress
Starting in September with a bang, the Kardashian star updated her Instagram account with two different posts.
In black tones and her platinum hair blending into her snowy landscape, she wore a yellow floral cycling draped dress and the iconic Balenciaga bag.
Racking up half a million likes in her first few hours, Kim simply captioned: “Winter 22 @balenciaga,” adding a snowflake emoji.
And let’s not forget the iconic Balenciaga boots (pant boots).
Kardashian critics liken it to ‘old curtains’
Again, her photos caught the attention of the internet. Although many praised her for her figure and her beauty in the photos, others criticized her dress. Netizens claimed it wasn’t flattering enough and didn’t look like luxury brand Balenciaga.
A Kardashian critic tweeted, “That’s not it Kim, you look so petite and the pattern on your dress is a no to me.”
Another followed: “You look like a grandma in there.”
A third user added, “Hey, the pattern looks like old curtains to me.”
Nonetheless, other fans are quick to compliment the reality star with heart-eye emojis and lots of hearts.
One fan simply commented: “Até”.
A second wrote: “Queen Balenciaga.”
Another fan pointed out, “It’s giving away the 2013 Met Gala.”
Instagram followers also showered the star with compliments on the post, appearing to put an end to any criticism that might have peaked.
Kim declares herself ‘Balenci Barbie’
Balenciaga and Kim have a long history together. Don’t forget that Kim has a separate safe where she keeps all the pieces she’s worn during her years out of the spotlight. Earlier this week, the socialite called herself Balenciaga’s Barbie in a doll-inspired look.
Sharing a video while posing in a dressing room with her 329 million Instagram followers, she captioned: “Balenci Barbie.”
The comments section was full of messages from fans who agreed with the statement. This included younger sister Kylie Jenner and close friends Vanessa Bryant and Malika Haqq.
Even though she wasn’t wearing a duct tape dress that had Balenciaga written all over it this time around, it’s clear that Kim was meant to become their muse at some point.
