Suits You: Is Kim Kardashian's Tux A Reaction To Her Fear Of Pregnancy Weight Gain?

17 January 2013 by

It was only last week that we reported how Kim Kardashian's wardrobe appeared to be more risqué than ever since announcing her pregnancy in December. After wearing a racy lace dress for an appearance on New Year's Eve and a black bra-revealing blouse for the Cowboys Casino Iced event in Calgary, the reality TV star stepped out in a boob-tastic blue be-jewelled Julien Macdonald dress for dinner in Miami. We concluded that baby daddy Kanye's desire for Kimmy to wear seriously chic monochrome looks from the likes of Balenciaga and Givenchy was having no effect on the mother-to-be and her love of body-con frocks and bounteous bling.

What a difference seven days makes. When Kim rocked up for an appearance on David Letterman's chat show last night her bootilicious body was barely visible in a buttoned up white shirt and black tuxedo ensemble. As well as keeping her makeup super simple Ms Kardashian slicked back her usually voluminous hair in a side parting giving the ultimate nod to the masculine trend.

While we think her brother-in-law Scott Disick would be impressed by her willingness to dress like a dapper gent, we're not entirely convinced by Kim's manover. It's likely that the star's decision to cover up her curves had little to do with fashion and more to do with her fear of the changes physical changes occurring during her pregnancy. Kim recently tweeted "Can't sleep & I'm googling double chin exercises! I'm petrified to get one!" and has been spotted making pilgrimages to the gym in an effort to stay in shape.

If Kim's dalliance with tailoring is set to continue she could do worse than look to the likes of Alexa Chung and Chloë Sevigny for how to work a good tux. Take a look through the gallery above to see the stylish stars that’ve got the suited and booted look right and wrong.
