Kourtney Kardashian mocked over 'ridiculous' naked dress: 'Horrible'

The Poosh founder is the latest celebrity to jump on the controversial fashion trend.

Kourtney Kardashian has divided fans online after she shared a gallery of snaps on Instagram posing in an unconventional optical illusion gown.

The Renaissance-inspired dress, which is designed by Balmain, features a nude body on the front that wraps around Kourtney’s figure and gives the impression that she is fully naked herself. Meanwhile, the back of the outfit has cherubs painted against a blue sky.

The eldest Kardashian sister showed off her look in what appears to be an elevator, with her dark hair styled in an updo with two strands framing her face.

“If you’d like to make a call please hang up and try again,” she captioned the post.

Her followers quickly took to the comments to share their thoughts on the look, with one person writing: “This is definitely a no.”

“Sorry to say, but this looks ridiculous,” another added, while a third said, “This is the ugliest dress I’ve ever seen”.


“This dress makes me uncomfortable. The back is nice but the front… nah,” someone else remarked.

“You people have tons of money and wear the worst clothes ever,” a different user shared, followed by another who said, “I guess I just don't understand fashion.”

“Trying way too hard ever since she started dating Travis [Barker],” one follower commented. “Love her and him but it has gotten weird.”

Others called the outfit “grotesque”, “horrible”, “creepy”, “disturbing” and an “absolute mess”.

'This is everything'

Meanwhile, there were plenty of people who were fans of the Poosh founder’s look and flooded the comments with fire emojis.

“Being Mrs Barker looks good on you,” one follower wrote, with someone else adding, “Love love love”.

“You’re doing amazing sweetie,” another commented, referencing Kris Jenner’s famous quote.

“This is everything,” a different user replied.


Quite a few followers also questioned whether Kourtney might be expecting, with one fan saying her look was “giving glowing and showing”.

This isn’t the first time the Kardashians have divided followers with their unique looks, with Kim Kardashian being slammed last month for wearing a see-through bikini.
