It’s Kim Kardashian for you today. The newlywed reality TV star looked stunning while flaunting her sexy legs in a red dress in NYC with her sister a few days ago.

The ShoeDazzle founder had on a delectably beautiful red number, which she styled with a statement necklace, some cocktail rings, a clutch, and a pair of gorgeous snakeskin Christian Louboutins. The look was a perfect 10 in my books, especially the dress.

Don’t you love Kim’s style here? That red dress made her skin glow, and I love how it is cut to flatter.

Speaking of cuts, do you see the cutout detailing of the bodice? Now, isn’t that an interesting feature? It is a pretty precise element that does a great job of highlighting the pleated skirt.

If you’re wondering where Kim got her one-of-a-kind dress, it would be Alexander McQueen. Her pleated skirt dress draws inspiration from British regimental uniforms, hence the top and skirt appearance.

Pretty cool, yes? It’s a one-piece made to look like a two-piece, essentially a combo dress in one color. It even has a self-belt, which Kim obviously decided to do away with.

I seriously find it gorgeous, and I think it’s quite versatile, but the price tag does make it somewhat undesirable. You see, grabbing this McQueen will cost you a whopping $2,045. Ouch indeed. Knowing that makes me wish I was Kim K. right now…

I think I must do a little DIY to achieve something similar or stick to daydreaming. OR, perhaps this dress from BB Dakota that I found just might have to do for the moment:
