There Was Once A Time When We All Looked Like Kim Kardashian

There is one thing that unites the female portion of the Western world’s population, and that is, without a doubt, that if they were old enough to remember 2007 they sure as heck owned a waist cinching belt. And, probably gold Jenny From The Block hoops. Not even Kim Kardashian was immune. Ten years to this week, Kim was actually a style doppelganger for all of us. Though she was on the precipice of reality stardom, her wardrobe was less intimidating than it is now, in fact it was pretty down-to-earth. Whether it was bodycon micro dresses or aviator sunglasses, as trends swept us up, she too rode the wave.

Waist Belt Wide Enough To Be Seen From Space: Guilty

The untold damage that Gok Wan and his obsession with five-finger-wide waist-cinching belts inflicted on the women of the world can be clearly summed up by this picture. Poor Kim, she’s 95% belt.

Bodycon LBD: Guilty

Classic Kim, serving curves and cut-outs at a fashion event. Nothing ever changes, except maybe that blue eyeshadow.

Graduated Sunglasses: Guilty

Many like to think their ombre story started with their hair, but it can actually be traced back to the summer of ’07 when ‘70s style aviators were trailblazing the trend.

Footless Tights: Guilty

Some liked to call these leggings, but you only ever realised how low the denier really was when you bent over. Kim, like all of us, was so caught up in the footless tights mania of 2007 that she embraced them even when they were the colour of accidents. Sadly, we’ve all been there.

Dangerous Levels Of Lipgloss: Guilty

There was always a balance between getting the perfect level of wet-look shine and still being able to prize your lips open.
