I couldn’t be more begrudging about this but despite every snobby instinct in me subconsciously vowing that Kim Kardashian would never make it into this most refined of fashion appreciation columns (ha!), I just can’t help but admire a woman with real life curves and hips and boobs who can slip into a – brassy mustard, dirty yellow, Rather gold? – satin dress, shrug on a huge coat of an even more indefinable shade and walk like she owns the world.

The tone-on-tone oversized coat over clingy dress has been Kim’s post-baby signature look for 2013.
I first took noticed in September when she wore her MaxMara Manuela camel hair over a nude dress to the Givenchy show in Paris.
This version, worn to the The Hollywood Reporter Women in Entertainment Breakfast in Los Angeles yesterday, is more blingy, but it’s the same lesson: know your body shape and celebrate it. In the age of ‘skinny rules’ that counts for something, even if in Kardashian’s case it does come attached to a whole load of other vacuous nonsense that I don’t want to admire. If you’re interested in bombshell glamour, take a few notes.
