Kris Jenner's Vera Wang Gown At Kim Kardashian's Wedding: Was It Retro Glam Or Too Over The Top?

Mon, August 22, 2011 11:11am EDT by 25 Comments

The strapless number, complete with a big bow, reminded me of THAT infamous dress from ‘90210’! What did you think of it?

Some may accuse me of finding a way to relate anything and everything to my favorite iconic ’90s show, 90210, but I think in this instance I’m definitely on to something! While most brides would shudder at the thought of women showing up to their wedding dressed in white, Kim Kardashian‘s guests were encouraged to wear the color — and that’s exactly what the mother of the bride, Kris Jenner, did!

Clad in a white strapless Vera Wang gown, her frock was simple for the most part — with the only big detail being a huge bow at the neckline! This is a bold choice for a mother of the bride, when usually a mom would opt for something more modest, but considering it’s Kris Jenner I wasn’t surprised — although I definitely thought it was such a throwback to the late ’80s and ’90s!

While I doubt Kris was taking cues from Brenda and Kelly on 90210, I couldn’t help but notice the similarities between both big bows on their dresses — so I have to ask, who pulled off the look best? Luckily for Kris, she was the only one at the ceremony in her frock — which wasn’t the case at the Spring Dance!

I think it was way to bold and attention seeking since it was Kim’s big day, not hers. She’s already had her big day twice.

Kris looked absolutely stunning in this dress she is always at the top of her game and her girls follow suit team kardashian all the way.

Can anyone just say that Kris Jenner’s dress was ridiculous?
She always tries to compete with her daughters, but this dress just makes her look like a fool. Wasn’t there somone around to tell her that this was not a dress that anyone would wear to anyplace much less a wedding?

The family looked lovely … each one of them … while I’m not crazy about that big bow it stood out and certainly made a statement just like the K clan always does. The wedding overall was spectacular. Kris Jenner’s face didn’t look any different than it did before her plastic surgery that took hours. Perhaps if you look very closely and compare photos one next to the other you would notice. She was very upset about her body and face and under those circumstances, she did it for herself. Aging for women especially is not easy in this shallow society we have created and especially in her very visible position. Happy for all of them.

I like Shannen and Jennie prom dresses than Kris Jenner’s. Her dress is so way over the top.(What’s with the Bow? Are you kidding me?) Shannen/Jennie’s are sexy.

I don’t understand the bow. Unnecessary, distracting and NOT fashion-forward!

I’m surprised Vera Wang would put such a large bow on the bodice of Kris Jenner’s gown, not crazy about it.

White or black was the dress code that Kim told ALL of her guests to wear, there were many women there in white dresses per Kim’s request/demand.

Regardless it was tacky of her to wear a gown like that. She is basically wearing a wedding gown. She had a world of white dresses to choose from that wouldn’t have been floor length gowns just as long if not longer than her daughter’s wedding dress
