Fact: Kim Kardashian will go to great, aesthetically questionable lengths to ensure her new platinum dye job gets the attention it deserves during Paris Fashion week. These lengths have included (but are not limited to): re-dying her hair an even lighter shade of peroxide and wandering around the city in a series of mesh outfits that resemble supportive underwear and well-placed censorship strips. In sum, requirements of garments include: more than naked, less than clothing. Shock value preferred.
