I think it was Mark Twain that said “history does not repeat itself, but it does often rhyme”?

Kim Kardashian’s relationship with clothing is often divided into two distinct phases: that which emerged pre- and post-Kanye West. But for those old enough to have watched the Calabasas princess thwacking Khloé over the head with a Louis Vuitton handbag in season two of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim’s style will forever be plunged in the amber of the 2010s: a time when she was still working at DASH and seemingly thrilled to attend the opening of—well, anything—so long as there was a step and repeat involved.

So potent was this look that when Madame Tussauds honoured Kim with a waxwork in 2010, she was immortalised and sheathed into one of those precise dresses. I’d even go so far as to say that there would be no face-obscuring Balenciaga gowns without Kim’s erstwhile patronage of Hervé Leger—it was that same mummified silhouette, after all, that did most of the work.

Fast forward to this weekend and Kim Kardashian was photographed while posing on the red carpet at the 10th Breakthrough Prize ceremony in Los Angeles – which is known as the Oscars of the science world, because Kim is matriculating towards an Elon Musk, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates level of fame—in a bandaged Alaïa bodycon gown with towering platform heels. Perhaps it’s only a matter of time until Kim strikes up a partnership with Hervé Leger once again and purchases this dress back from her own resale platform. I think it was Mark Twain that said “history does not repeat itself, but it does often rhyme”?
