Kim Kardashian's 2019 Emmys Dress Was Such A Classic Silhouette
In case you missed it, Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner walked the red carpet at the 2019 Emmys on Sunday, Sept. 22 before they took the stage to announce the winner for the Outstanding Reality TV Series category. And in true Kardashian-Jenner fashion, both sisters rocked a stunning head-to-toe glam. In particular, Kim Kardashian's 2019 Emmys dress was a stunning black velvet floor-length gown with a timeless fitted silhouette that, naturally, looked incredible.
The black velvet dress, which is a gorgeous creation from none other than Vivienne Westwood, featured a corset bodice, a long train in the back, an oversized bow in the back at the waist, and a square neckline with thick shoulder straps. Kim chose to pair the gown with three necklaces: two layers of thick silver chains and one silver, diamond encrusted cross. And although her shoes were hidden by the floor-length gown, she chose to wear black open-toe heels — an all-black look that still shined so bright on the carpet.
As far as her beauty beat for the 2019 Emmys, Kim went with long, tousled mermaid tresses parted down the center, all the creation of celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton. Kim's OG makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic created a look that featured a mostly nude color palette, with a light brown smoky eye, a nude lip, and a contoured face.
As Kim was getting ready for the 2019 award show, she took to her Instagram stories to share images of her Emmys looks from years past. The first photo she shared featured her alongside her sister Kourtney, where Kim was rocking a one-sleeve, white, floor-length gown. She also shared a side-by-side image of that same picture with Kourtney, and a picture of herself and Kris Jenner from a different year where she wore a white gown. The story was posted with the text "I'm not wearing white this year..."
In preparation for the show, Kim also posted a video of the year she "sang" at the Emmys with Jimmy Fallon. The video showed Jimmy strumming on a guitar in the middle of the audience, where he then walked up to Kim as they sang a tune together that introduced that year's reality TV award nominees. "Who remembers when I sang at The Emmys," she captioned the video.
While Kim didn't sing at this year's Emmys, she did once again help to introduce the nominees for the reality TV award. Except this year, her and her sister Kendall's introduction was met with some, uh, unexpected laughter from the audience members. "Our family knows first-hand how truly compelling television comes from real people just being themselves, telling their stories, unfiltered and unscripted," Kim said as she introduced the nominees. That line caused the audience to burst out into laughter — something that I don't think the sisters exactly expected, judging by their faces during the moment it happened. The laughter was likely caused by the fact that some may not consider Keeping Up With The Kardashians a show that is always "unfiltered and unscripted."
Even if you don't consider KUWTK the "realest" reality TV show, there's no laughing about how amazing both Kim and Kendall looked at this year's Emmys.
