Kim Kardashian is no newbie when it comes to breaking barriers and pushing the limits in both life and fashion. Whether she’s stepping out at a glitzy event or just heading to a law class, every moment of her life is an opportunity to make a fashion statement.
This week, Kim’s wardrobe included a modern take on the classic denim-on-denim pairing known internationally as the Canadian tuxedo. And as Canadians, we feel entitled to say no. Sorry, but no.
Kim is joined on our worst-dressed list this week by Awkwafina doing her best take on a disco ball; Nick Jonas on his way to Oz and Avril Lavigne’s belated Halloween celebration. See it all in this edition of Worst Looks of the Week below.
Kim K has a truly wild take on the Canadian tuxedo
Kristen StewartThere’s a lot going on here that we could comment on, but the most offensive part of this outfit is truly the belt or lack thereof. There are reasons shoe laces were put on this planet, but to hold up a pair of pants was not one of them. Getty Images
Vivica A. FoxVivica’s attire is jazzy and glitzy and would blend in well on the streets of Vegas but stands out like a glittery thumb on the red carpet. Maybe something a bit more formal to match the Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion-esque high ponytail.Getty Images
Christine Baranski“What’s Love Got To Do With It?” Well, usually everything, and since we’re not feeling the love for the grey on grey on grey, we suggest Christine should have thrown on a more vibrant jacket or even just added a colourful clutch for the opening night of TINA: The Tina Turner Musical.Getty Images
Kim KardashianIt looks like the material removed from her jeans was just added to those sleeves. The woman is a pioneer in the fashion industry but obviously needs to take some notes on how to rock a Canadian tuxedo next time she’s north of the border. Getty Images
Joely RichardsonAnyone else craving Fruit Roll Ups all of a sudden? The champagne coloured silk is stunning and would have looked great if only the two-toned stripes down the centre didn’t scream “chewable fruit candy” quite so loudly. Getty Images
Taraji P. HensonTaraji has starred in many a period piece so you’d think she would have known that this uncoordinated outfit does not belong in this era. She must have had to go time-travelling to the ‘60s to get those boots.Getty Images
Maria MenounosMaria was out at a benefit event for an LA-based animal rescue but she could have used some rescuing too… from this drab outfit. The combat boots do not pair well at all with the short, shiny blazer. If it were a bit longer like a duster coat, she could be forgiven, but as-is, nope. Getty Images
Avril LavigneAvril, the gothic witch outfit is well-matched, especially with the dark eye makeup, but Halloween was last week.Getty Images
Jerry O'ConnellThumbs up to Jerry’s suit. Thumbs down to the sneaks. While attending a photocall in Madrid alongside his wife, Rebecca Romijn, he should have stepped up his shoe game with a nicer pair.Getty Images
Naya RiveraWhat's really unsettling about this outfit is seeing just a sliver of Naya's bellybutton. That, plus the too long jeans and the glittery gold bag all clash with this oversized grandpa blazer. Getty Images
Demi MooreDoes this pattern look a little familiar? Demi’s bringing us back to her Now and Then days with some ‘70s-era accents and matching scarf. The problem is, it’s looking a lot more “then” than “now.” Getty Images
Nick JonasNick Jonas is any fashion designer’s dream model. He looks great in almost anything. Almost. Unfortunately, this head-to-toe emerald suit is one of the rare exceptions to the rule. It belongs in a thrift store in Oz’s Emerald City. Getty Images
Reese WitherspoonReese must have found the same sale rack as Nick Jonas. Her emerald skirt is a go, but the turtleneck and blazer in similar shades are signaling stop. What if the coat was white? Getty Images
Julianne MooreJulianne is clearly going for elegant and classy in this glittery tuxedo-esque dress, but unfortunately all it’s giving off is “penguin.”Getty Images
Jordin SparksAt the risk of sounding exactly like every dad ever, what’s the point of buying jeans if they already have big holes in them? Jordin Sparks obviously knows the secret, but looking at these, we just don’t.Getty Images
Kiernan ShipkaAll that glitters is not gold. Or silver. The enormous multi-shaded sequins dangling from Kiernan’s glimmering minidress look more like paint samples for an ensuite bathroom than fashion-forward clothing. The outfit would be better suited for Dancing with the Stars than a movie premiere.Getty Images
AwkwafinaIf anyone can pull of this shiny metallic long-sleeve minidress, it’s Awkwafina. So... apparently nobody can…. The white heels and clutch are cute, but the silver dress looks like something Disco Stu saves for special occasions. Getty Images
