The Upsetting Reason Kim Kardashian Dyed Her Dress With Tea Bags

Require additional proof that there defiinitely aren't sufficient interpretations of "nude" available on shelves right now? Leave it to Kim Kardashian and a quick pre-red carpet dress tweak to underscore how narrowly skin tones are defined.

Final week, Kardashian showed up for de Grisogono's Cannes celebration donning a Lan Yu Couture gown. The shimmery dress was really a two-piece: There was the metallic, open-sided layer that went on prime, and a nude slip worn underneath, in accordance to Men and women. However, as we all know, there's no universal shade of "nude." Instead of risking a wardrobe malfunction, the reality star received resourceful (with a small help from her staff, certainly) and staged some DIY action in her hotel suite, as Mic pointed out. "We had to attempt to darken the nude mesh dress below the silver layer, since it was as well light to match my skin tone," Kardashian recalled on her website. "We had just two hrs before we left for Cannes, so we put Earl Grey tea bags in a sink and put the dress in for about thirty minutes to dye it." She's not bluffing: There is video proof of the slip being tossed close to in the Earl Grey-tinted waters of a hotel bathroom, for all you skeptics. (You will have to get beyond the paywall of her app, of course, but Kim posted a snippet for curious minds on Twitter.) The saga didn't end there. Apparently, the slip was still a minor damp by the time she had to head out the door, and did not absolutely dry right up until the quite last second, when she had to phase on the red carpet, according to Men and women The vogue industry — and lingerie in distinct — has been very slow to diversify its definition of nude, in spite of the clear demand. When U.K.-primarily based brand Nubian Skin launched in 2014, it was one particular of the initial inclusive lingerie firms on the industry. The issue has been addressed by at least one particular luxury label, too: Christian Louboutin broadened its classic "nude" shoe variety in 2015. Just yesterday, the Gina Rodriguez -backed Naja launched its Nude For All assortment — bras and underwear in a variety of 7 diverse flesh-colored hues — with a daring series of adverts to dress up New York subway stations.

Although Kardashian took the awkward scenario in stride (and definitely made it work), the entire ordeal proves that, regardless of a bit of progress, we want more shades of nude on the market.
