Mary Alice Stephenson: Kim K Should Gain 70 Lbs And Wear A Muumuu
We think pregnancy is the ultimate excuse for even the most fashion-conscious women to stow the stilettos, ditch the bandage dresses, and put comfort first for nine months. You’re already dealing with morning sickness and swollen ankles — why subject yourself to constrictive waistbands, too?
One woman who hasn’t yet changed up her styling habits, however, is Kim Kardashian, who The Cut recently dubbed the “World’s Least Comfortable Pregnant Woman” and who has been defiantly sporting structured suits, waist-cinching pants, and sky high heels well into her second trimester.
“I suggest that Kim do what I did: Gain like 70 pounds and wear a muumuu. I just retreated to my kitchen and my TV room and didn’t go out and just took care of myself and my baby. It doesn’t really matter what she’s wearing, she’s a curvy woman and you gain weight when pregnant. Most actresses and supermodels are anorexic — most of them don’t gain enough weight to have a healthy pregnancy . . . People need to support pregnant women no matter who they are.”
This all sounds like solid advice, but we do have one question: does Givenchy even make muumuus? Because if not, Riccardo Tisci should really do the Kimye fetus a favor and get on that, stat! We’re sure even Kanye would approve.
