Kourtney Kardashian's 'cringey' Oscars moment

Hollywood’s classiest red carpet was treated to an uncharacteristic display of affection on Sunday when Kourtney Kardashian and her fiancé Travis Barker arrived at the Oscars.

Dressed in matching head-to-toe black, the couple let us all know just how much they’re in love by engaging in a little tonsil tennis for the cameras.

Of course, Twitter had a field day with its commentary, with the moment labelled “cringey” and “trashy”, and one person calling for the pair to “keep your tongues in your mouths”.

“Nothing says, ‘sophistication,’ like Kourtney Kardashian sticking her tongue down Travis Barker’s throat on the most coveted red carpet,” one Twitter user said, “Who invited them? I want names.”

“Could go my whole life without seeing Kourtney and Travis lick each other’s tonsils,” was another remark.

Many also asked what the Kardashian was even doing at the Oscars, as reality TV stars aren’t often invited to the film industry’s night of nights - and in fact, Kourtney is the first member of her famous family to attend the Academy Awards.

However, contrary to some people’s initial suspicions, she wasn’t a gate crasher but Travis’ plus one as the former Blink-182 drummer was performing throughout the night as part of the Oscars’ all-star band.

Kourt’s ‘80s Mugler dress

While many of the celebs went all out with their red carpet ensembles this year, Kourtney kept her look simple and understated in a vintage Thierry Mugler dress.

The strapless black frock was completely unembellished aside from a contrasting velvet detail at the bust and fell down to her ankles with a modest split on one side.

Even her accessories, hair and makeup were noticeably unostentatious, with a swept-back, wet-look hairstyle, natural glam and black fan earrings.

Travis meanwhile, was clearly making an effort to match his love in an all-black Margiela suit with a black shirt, shoes and shades.
