Kim Kardashian is no stranger to suffering for fashion. At the 2019 Met Gala, she famously wore a corset so tight she needed breathing lessons and she also regularly duct tapes her breasts for the sake of the look. And while Kardashian's recent latex Balmain look was a work of art you must see the struggle she endured trying to put it on.
Keeping Up With the Kardashians released a clip from an upcoming episode that followed Kim and Kourtney through PFW. In the video, Kim enlists an entire team to squeeze her body into the Balmain latex bodysuit and leggings. I'm sweating just watching this.
She needs several pairs of hands to help her get dressed.
As you can see, Kim needed to dig way, way down into the depths of her leggings to pull them up toward her waist, along with a crew of people to hold her hair and keep her situated. This looks tremendously uncomfortable, and I hope she took a long bathroom break before she got dressed.
At one point, the latex appears to be winning.
It's a battle between skin and latex, and Kim's arm is a casualty in the fight. "I literally feel like I just pulled a muscle in my shoulder," she says, which zero irony. "This is fucking Fashion Week." Kim better have an orthopedist as part of her entourage.
Is fashion worth it?
Great question! Kim seems to think so, because she then dons a latex jacket over the bodysuit with full-length gloves. How did she not overheat wearing this much plastic? How did she use the bathroom? I guess when your job is to wear weird clothes at fashion shows, you'll suffer for the look. Check out the full clip above.
