Kim Kardashian celebrated her newest collection for her KKW Beauty line in the boldest way.
The KKW Beauty’s new Opalescent Collection pays homage to Kim’s upcoming 40th birthday on Oct. 21 by taking inspiration from her birthstone, opal. To announce the new collection, the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star posed in front of a mock birthday cake in a matching glitter-coated sheer bralette and pants set, layered over high-rise briefs from her Skims line.
As if the outfit wasn’t bold enough, the real kicker of the look came in the form of Kim’s choice of footwear.
On her feet, the media personality slipping on a pair of towering platform PVC heels with see-through straps and a fully see-through base. Resembling styles from Pleaser Shoes, similar designs come with a 2-inch platform and an over 6-inch clear heel; the brand offers pairs from $46 to $62 at Amazon.com.
PVC footwear rose to prominence in 2018 and has since become a staple on the celebrity style scene. Brands like Gianvito Rossi, Christian Louboutin and Amina Muaddi have jumped on the clear shoe train with bold heels and studded designs that flatter the foot and elongate the legs. Kim’s own sisters are huge fans of the trend and oftentimes frequent styles from Yeezy just like the Skims founder.
Beyond see-through heels, Kim Kardashian of course favors apparel from her husband Kanye West’s Yeezy collections for footwear and apparel in addition to sneakers and boots from his Adidas Yeezy line. She styles the pieces with coordinating looks from Balmain, Balenciaga, Stuart Weitzman and Bottega Veneta.
Beyond stylish looks on and off the set of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” Kim also dipped her toes into the fashion and beauty world with a mix of ventures. She created her Skims shapewear line in 2019, featuring a mix of inclusive designs and now affordable face masks too. Additionally, the media personality also founded her own makeup line, KKW Beauty, last fall.
