Because really, pregnant or not, Kim never fails to keep her fan base obsessed over her many daring— daresay risqué—ensembles (like, say, that naked Met Gala dress). Since announcing her second bun in the oven, the 34-year-old established the theme of her maternity wardrobe early on: curve-hugging, bump-baring midi dresses in dark and neutral tones. Which is exactly why the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star made a bee-line straight to designer Ronny Kobo to cater to her specific maternity needs.
“Kim knows exactly what she likes and wants. She will personally request pieces and she always wears whatever we send. It is a win-win!” Kobo dished exclusively to E! News.
And it would seem that what Kim likes are Ronny’s famously skin-tight designs, of which Sofía Vergara, Taylor Swift and Beyoncé are all big fans. But how many times has she worn Kobo’s line, Torn by Ronny Kobo, during her second pregnancy? Let’s count—as one of her very first maternity dresses, Kim stepped out in a perfectly poised, high-neck midi by the designer in black. Next, she donned the same dress while out with hubby Kanye West in July, this time sporting it in an on-trend marsala hue.
Touching down in St. Barts for a lavish family vacation on Monday, Kim sported her go-to silhouette in nude as she disembarked the plane, making for three times total since she’s worn the Torn by Ronny Kobo design since she’s been expecting. And that’s not even counting the first time she wore the dress in white back in May, before her big baby announcement.
For a girl who rarely repeats anything from her closet, that’s hella impressive.
“Kim adores our Thiadora Dress and has worn it a number of times, both pregnant and not pregnant. She loves it so much that we specially created it for her in all of the colors that she requested,” Kobo said. “The dress is incredibly flattering because it is snug and the fabric has some good support for a bump. It is very comfortable.”
With black, maroon, nude and ivory versions, Kim doesn’t just adore the dress—which rings in at a not-too-shabby $318—she’s obsessed with it. But really, who can blame her? Kobo’s design ties in seamlessly with Kim’s taste.
“She loves to be sexy while still retaining a strong sense of style and grace,” Kobo said of Kim’s keen fashion sense. “I think that her style has become super streamlined and clean. She knows what works for her, and it tends to be very form-fitting and tight on the figure.”
