Kim's Christmas dress is, err, quite divisive

Any Kardashian-Jenner fan worth their salt will know that Christmas is a major deal for the family. Usually they'd celebrate in style by throwing a huge annual Christmas Eve party (a tradition started by matriarch Kris Jenner back in the 70s), featuring not only some extremely plush decorations, but some of the most glam/daring outfits rocked by the five sisters.

This year, despite the festivities being a pared back (the gang, minus Khloe, spent the night before Christmas over at Kourtney's place) – and the lewks were still as exciting as ever. Whilst hostess Kourtney opted for a... we want to say gingerbread inspired(?) two piece (hello stunning cinnamon tones and glitzy trim) and younger sister Kylie kept it classic in a red full-length number, Kim took a punt on something a little more out there.

Posting a series of photos on Instagram, the businesswoman and mother-of-four can be seen in a dress comprising of a dark green, latex bustier featuring... wait for it... next-level chiselled abs – which she then teamed with a lime green satin skirt, complete with thigh split. Although Kim wrote in a caption alongside an image of herself and Kylie "Merry Christmas from The Grinch and Santa", many of her 196 million followers thought she was channelling a very different iconic green character with her look: The Hulk.

Here's a shot of the dress (created by Schiaparelli) for your viewing pleasure:

One social media user commented underneath "Merry Hulkmas!", while another said, "Damn, more like the hulk" (which is a bit harsh tbh). The Hulk-y comparisons continued when other photos of Christmas Eve were shared by Kim, some of which included her adorably cute kids: North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 1.

After seeing Kim's outfit in the group pictures, one fan made it known they were into the look and couldn't help but point out that the famous fictional superhero would likely be fearful of Kim's incredible fashion prowess: "The hulk is shaking 😍😍."

Kim also uploaded some solo shots, adding that her gown made her feel festive even though this year's celebrations looked a little different to usual: "A special thanks to @danielroseberry @schiaparelli for my amazing gown that made me feel festive this year even though our Christmas Eve party was cancelled. It was perfect to dress up and celebrate [with] just the fam this year. I hope everyone had a healthy and happy holiday ❤️💚."

Whilst it may be a divisive look, we've got to hand it to Kim – not many would be bold enough to give it a go. And hey, given that she's been credited for starting plenty of trends in the past, maybe we'll all be rocking a latex six-pack next Christmas Eve too? Watch this space...
