Fashion Disasters: Kim Kardashian’s One Armed Fur Thing

Where to begin?

Kardashian showed up at a basketball game in Miami today wearing this. This.

She rocks the usual fainted-into-a-Mac-counter face veil, so let’s overlook that for the time being.

She is wearing a fur sleeve. A single fur sleeve. If that weren’t confusing enough, it’s got feathers coming out of it. Beneath that we have the phoned-in suede thigh high boots.

Points, though, for ditching her usual pageant hair for this weird high braid. It looks painful, frankly, though the shape is pretty weird, so that’s… something.

But that sleeve. I cannot get past that sleeve. Maybe on a more outré
fashion character like Gaga or, I don’t know, Johnny Weir, I’d be cool with it. But on Kardashian, I’m wondering: is it a shrug or part of her turtleneck? Is her other arm immune to cold? Was it made from a bird/bear hybrid or stitched together from a bunch of animals like some regrettable patchwork craft project?

The only time a fur uni-sleeve is appropriate is if it’s all you’ve got for a Halloween costume so you tell people you’re the “Second Amendment.” Otherwise, you’re the clueless reality TV star sitting courtside dressed like a Berenstain Pigeon.

    Yeah, it’s a bird/bear hybrid. The sleeve is obviously from an owlbear. You can find a full description of these elusive critters in the Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual, v.3.5.

      Your comment has saddened me because I thought the owlbear I personally engineered in my basement lab was the only one in existence.

    This is the stupidest thing one can wear to a basketball game.

    I kind of like it on her. I’m not bold enough to wear it but she seems confident in it. Her face is looking a little better; I like her hair & makeup. It’s funny how we try to teach people that they are perfect in their own, unique way, yet, we still attack women like Kim. Double standards. She likes attention & you all give it to her! Don’t complain when she won’t go away.

    i think is very nice she is beautiful and knows fashion everyone who has something to say probably has no fashion sense at all and walk around looking tacky and cheap….i absolutely love it and its perfect for her and the game she shouldnt look like anyone else there cuz she dont and isnt!
