Modesty – Kanye West’s Concern About Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala Look Was Perfectly Fair By Libby Emmons for The Federalist
GNN Note – Is the word “modesty” in Kim Kardasian’s vocabulary, I mean, given the fact that it was a pornographic video that made her famous? How does that work?
The story behind Kim Karsahsian West’s Met Gala dress last spring turns out to be even more grueling than it looked. The dress itself was insane, all glimmer and glam, sparkling and skin tight as though she’d just stepped out of the sea, an ocean creature illuminated with bioluminescent crystals. It was a super-sexy wet look.
While Kardashian is known for donning titillating outfits, we now know her husband, Kanye West, took issue with it, thanks to a new episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
West didn’t used to care, back when he encouraged her to pose nude. Now he does. Kardashian, and her fans, lashed out against his comments—but is it wrong for a man to want to guard his wife from lurid stares?
Kardashian’s Thierry Mugler dress was impractical; she couldn’t sit and she definitely couldn’t attend to nature’s business. She’d worked on the look for 11 months, and had to practice breathing while wearing a corset cinched too tight to allow for proper lung inflation. She wore it despite the pain, and looked like a sculpture. Mugler came back to the label to design specially for Kardashian, and her look was inspired by Sophia Loren’s style in her 1957 film “Boy on a Dolphin.”
It was an art project in form and fashion. But the look caused waves in her marriage. Kanye didn’t know who all this unabashed appeal was meant to please. He didn’t like the idea of other people desiring his wife.
