Although the never-ceasing rumor mill has it that the just-wed Kim Kardashian is suffering from a very early case of the Seven-Year Itch, Kim evoked the calamine-lotion-necessitating scratch on Halloween when she dressed up at "Batman" bad-gal Poison Ivy.
Taking fashion cues from Uma Thurman's costume in the much maligned 1997 "Batman & Robin" film, Kim donned a blazing red wig, villainous eye accoutrements and a leafy-green mess of a dress that emphasized her curves.
It seems like the horticultural warning "leaves of three, let them be" was enough to keep hubby Kris Humphries away from his new wife -- the basketballer was nowhere to be seen at the Halloween bash.
Nevertheless, Kim insisted there was nothing sinister about Kris' absence. "I'm going to Australia tomorrow so I'm in New York alone tonight. I really prepared Kris for [these rumors], to let him know that no matter what we do, there's going to be rumors," she explained. "It used to really upset me and now I don't even think about it."
It is worth noting that Kim's sexy Halloween costume this season is a far cry from 2009's pre-Humphries Princess Jasmine costume which showed far more skin. So maybe Kim did decide to cover up a bit—for a Kardashian—in deference to her absent husband.
