There are two types of rebound looks: rebound looks and Kim Kardashian’s rebound looks. Kanye West was out shopping at Balenciaga while Kim was visiting Baker’s Bay Golf and Ocean Club in Bahamas with Pete Davidson. Nothing trumps tagliatelle at Carbone – the setting of Ye’s now infamous fashion shoot for Julia Fox – quite like six miles of sandy beaches and itsy bitsy Skyler bikinis. Rumours about her ex-husband’s new love interest circulated and Kardashian posted a thirst trap selfie. She included the immortal words of Mariah carey: “Sweet Sweet Fantasy Baby.”
Maximilian Davis is a rising London star and Kim’s preferred scuba body. The cut-out leotard was worn underneath a pair slashed, baggy, low-slung jeans. It was a great advertisement for casually smoking rebound dressing. Kardashian looked exactly the same as she did in her original outfit, but it was the sexy and grungy Kim who prefers to wear her jeans distressed and her men like Davidson. Kim’s quiet, lo-fi, smouldering style contrasts with all-out revenge glamour. This is the type that Princess Diana used to show when Charles and Camilla were in a relationship.
We’re not talking about subtle in celeb terms. The Maxmilian’s neckline is not slouchy. It reminds us of the slinky style of the early 2000s when Lopez and her jungle print Versace Versace dress made headlines all over the globe. Beyonce was also crazy about her mini-dress by Donatella, recently reworn by Zendaya. This was the era of cleavage and tittape, as well as body oil. It was far removed from the Balenciaga top-to-toe Balenciaga ‘fits Kim wore until Pete came along.
