This past weekend at the Daytime Emmy Awards, professional pasta boiler Rachael Ray (L) wore a dress that had previously been worn by Kim Kardashian (R) during her 2011 appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman. Unexpected! The black, sparkly, sheer Marc Bouwer number was a somewhat novel choice for Ray, who tends to cover most of her breasts most of the time, but not for Kim, who tends to show most of them most of the time.
I feel like this is a much fairer fight than Kardashian Vs. Middleton, because a lot of people seem to dislike Rachael Ray. For the record, I have come to begrudgingly respect her because she admits her limitations as a food cooker (not a chef!), and also because she’s somewhat self aware about how annoying she is, and isn’t afraid to make fun of herself. She also has surprisingly good taste in music! The New York Dolls, The Raveonettes, and The Hold Steady have all played her SXSW day parties, which she throws pretty much just for the fuck of it. She also has several discernible talents.
But back to the issue at hand: the dress. Based on sheer suitability, it’s obviously a better fit for Kim Kardashian’s “more is more” sense of style. But maybe you like it when people surprise you with the things they wear? Rachael Ray accessorized it with some strappy shoes and a patterned clutch, while Kim accessorized it with plastic surgery and desperation. Can you tell whose side I’m on yet?
Another important thing to consider when answering is how much of a lady’s boobs you think should show through the sheer part of this dress. Just a little? Go for Rach. Approximately half? Vote Kim.
