Kim Kardashian enjoyed quite a few outfit changes this weekend, including a pretty spot-on Anna Wintour costume on Friday (with North West playing sidekick as Andre Leon Talley) and this sexy-time look at the LACMA Art + Film Gala on Saturday night. The festivities were sponsored by Gucci, but Kardashian opted for a satin asymmetrical dress from the Cushnie et Ochs spring 2015 collection. (Add one more to the list of stars who have scored the upcoming season's looks before they hit the stores.)

Now, I'll be the first to admit that I'm not always on board with everything that Mrs. Kanye West wears or does, but I like this one. And, figures that I seem to be in the minority in this instance, but let me explain. First, the striking shade of teal looks really beautiful with her complexion and the color is a refreshing change from the sea of black we usually see on the red carpet. Yes, Kim is showing quite a bit of leg, but this look is pretty covered up for the paparazzi magnet and, dare I say, demure (on a relative scale, of course). Granted, the hip area does look a bit taut, but come on, we're talking about Kim Kardashian — we all know how much she likes to accentuate her narrow waist.

So now it's your turn: thumbs up or thumbs down?
