Usually dressed to the nines for even the most ordinary events or casual outings, Kim Kardashian was relatively dressed down in a beige scoop-neck tee, a cream Acne bomber jacket, J Brand “8226” ripped skinny jeans, and nude ankle-strap sandals when she arrived at the Jimmy Kimmel Live! studio on Monday.

It was unusual to see Kim not primped to perfection, but what was even more unexpected was the outfit she changed into later for the show. It included a pointy-boobed corset, a teal satin robe, and pale pink satin pajamas, which, if you really get down to it, was basically sleepwear.

As this is Kim Kardashian we’re talking about, her pajama-like getup is actually couture. It’s from Russian designer Ulyana Sergeenko’s spring 2014 collection, which also provided her outfit for Khloe’s 30th birthday celebration. Kim drew another nighttime-inspired look from the collection for her late-night talk show guesting yesterday.
Do you think she pulled it off, or should she have worn something more appropriate and less complicated?

Mrs. West wore the same ensemble to her evening engagements, which was dinner at Nobu restaurant with Pussycat Dolls founder Robin Antin. She could’ve worn it straight to bed and no one would question it, don’t you think?

Like how she is usually with her other body-baring clothes, Kim was very conscious about how she looked in her Ulyana Sergeenko couture outfit and was often caught checking herself out. She’s always impeccably styled, no doubt, but it’s often negated by how uncomfortable or self-conscious she seems.

The shoes that took Kim from day to night were her nude Prada ankle-strap sandals, which were the same pair she was wearing the last time we spotted her at LAX. The sandals have long since sold out, but you can steal the style with these similar slim-strap sandals that are $80 and under:
