Khloe Kardashian Odom and her sister, Kim Kardashian, may both be considered stylistas (after all, they do have their own fashion line, the Kardashian Kollection, with Kourtney). However, they do have their own closet personalities, with Kim often taking the glamorous-sexy route–especially now with her new guy, Kanye West, who reportedly encourages the more seductive sartorial choices. As for Khloe, she seems to go for a more low-key, casual thing that’s still plenty cool but a bit more understated on the glam scale. Of course, their different body types–Khloe has about eight inches on Kim–certainly dictate some of their trendsetting looks, too.
However, all of this doesn’t mean that both girls may not sometimes choose the same styles, and in so doing, commit a bit of a celebrity fashion faux pas, i.e. repeating an ensemble already worn by another star. In fact, Kim Kardashian was just spotted at LAX airport wearing an ultra-chic black maxi dress with wide gray stripes at the bottom that Khloe Kardashian rocked a few short weeks ago, when she stepped out in Los Angeles.
But in this sisterly style showdown, the question must be asked: Who wore it best?
The dress may have been a similar (or even the same!) one, but it couldn’t have looked more different on each of the reality show stars. Kim put her curves on display, as she jetted through the airport. Tight, figure-hugging and sheer were the key words that defined the dress on her, as it clung to her assets. She also worked the sultry factor via the slightly see-through top part, through which her black bra was slightly visible. Kanye West would no doubt approve.
As for Khloe, she worked a more bohemian vibe with her version of the dress. The fit was far more loose and breezy on her, and only suggested the outline of her curves, rather than defining them explicitly. There was also no sign of see-through.
Both Keeping up with the Kardashians ladies stepped out of character, though, and swapped their favored sky-high heels for flats, as can be seen via the photos posted on Daily Mail.
So, was Kim Kardashian sheer perfection or was Khloe Kardashian the casual queen? Sometimes that understated sexiness ironically delivers far more appeal with its subdued sophistication.
