Kim Kardashian delivering yet another news-making look should not come as a surprise to anyone who has been around on the Internet for a bit. The reality TV superstar is known for her statement-making fashion, be it bicycle shorts paired with dressy stilettos or her latest obsession with hot pink.
The vibrant hue has become a mainstay in the wardrobes of all fashion ‘It’ girls, especially after taking over the runways of the autumn/winter 2022 shows. Hot pink fashion, or ‘Barbiecore’ for those in the know, has only grown from strength to strength over the past few months.
Recently, the SKIMS founder was spotted wearing a monochromatic pink look that had her channelling the pink Power Ranger, her own words, in a glossy body-hugging catsuit from her shapewear brand and a pair of Vetemnets X Manolo stiletto boots that went all the way to her hips and were also pink.
Kardashian accessorised the look sparingly with a pair of large black sunglasses and a tiny metallic purse. The look even got her a nod of approval from the queen of all things pink, Paris Hilton, who commented with her signature “That’s hot,” followed by pink heart emojis.
This is not the first time that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star championed the bright colour. During a trip to Tokyo earlier this month, she was spotted coordinating outfits with her daughters, nine-year-old North and five-year-old Chicago, as she wore a grey bralette and matching sweatpants with a hot pink fur coat.
Back in February, Kardashian hosted a dinner party and chose a strapless Rick Owens bodycon gown in hot pink for the night.
In March of 2022, she was spotted multiple times in the hue like the head-to-toe Balenciaga ensemble of a bandeau crop top and matching pink pant-a-boots.
This was right after she had released an all-pink SKIMS range for Valentine’s Day that year.
But we can truly trace back the beginning of her obsession with the colour from when she made her SNL hosting debut and showed up in three all-pink Balenciaga looks.
Do you think we’ll see more of Barbie/Pink Power Ranger Kim in the future? We know we’re rooting for it!
