Kim Kardashian West has been stepping out in simpler -- yet still super sexy -- styles in recent months, but on Wednesday night, the 36-year-old reality star looked more glamorous than ever.
Joined by her bodyguard and friend Jonathan Cheban, Kim was spotted outside Beauty & Essex in Los Angeles, California, wearing a show-stopping, all-black ensemble. The mother of two wore an over-sized black blazer that showcased her cleavage over a pair of sheer lace leggings that she accessorized with strappy heels and a small black clutch. Letting her clothes do the talking, Kim did not appear to be wearing any jewelry.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has not been sporting bling ever since she was robbed at gunpoint in October, and had millions of dollars-worth of jewelry taken from her. Even at Monday's Met Gala, arguably the biggest night for fashion, Kim went for a more demure look, stepping out in a white, off-the-shoulder slip dress by Vivienne Westwood, and zero accessories.
Last week on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kim revealed that she had sworn off jewelry following the robbery Paris. "It's not to say I'll never wear jewelry again or anything like that. I truly don't know if I'd ever feel comfortable," she admitted. "I truly don't know if I'd ever wear real jewelry again."
"I was definitely materialistic before," Kanye West's wife noted. "I just don't care about that stuff anymore."
Earlier this year, a source further explained Kim's new look. "Kim's style has definitely turned more low key," the source told ET. "During her time off, she wore less makeup, more comfortable clothing and spent less time on her hair, and that worked for her."
