SOMETHING old, something new, something borrowed, something… peek-a-boo?
Kim Kardashian was spotted leaving her former assistant Stephanie Sheppard’s wedding this weekend in an incredibly revealing gown, which one fashion expert said is proof stars don’t live in the real world.

In exclusive pictures obtained by The U.S. Sun, Kim, 42, was seen leaving the Beverly Hills, California nuptials and stopping at a gas station.
The mother of four was dressed to the nines in a barely-there black gown that exposed her cleavage, her back, and most of her tummy.
While she had more coverage on the bottom with her long mermaid-style skirt, it, too, was open in the front and exposed black underwear underneath.
And though Kim put on a daring display, it doesn’t appear that she was following any unique dress code for the evening.
Other attendees, including BFF LaLa Anthony and mom Kris Jenner, wore sexy but otherwise traditional dresses.
If anyone else wore such a look-at-me dress to a wedding, it might lead to some bad blood with the bride — but fashion expert Sandra Okerulu doesn’t believe that’s the case here.
She told The U.S. Sun that stars like Kim “don’t live in the same reality that we live in.”
And though she thinks the dress would be more appropriate for a red carpet, she bets bride Steph Shep was a fan of Kim’s daring fashion choice.
“As someone who reads the room from a style point of view, it is essential to note a few things before shopping for a look,” she said.
“The bride is the main attraction,” she added — and guests shouldn’t worry about upstaging her because they simply won’t.
“In this case, Kim Kardashian’s approach catered more to wearing what felt good to her.
“[She may have also been] thinking that the bride will look the best regardless of what everyone wears.”

Okerulu described Kim’s dress as “beautiful” and said she liked the tasteful mermaid cut of the bottom half — but thinks it could have used a bit more fabric.
“I loved the black color of choice, but I would have loved to see a little more coverage for the sake of her friend, who is the bride.”
Though Kim can get away with wearing whatever she wants, Okerulu thinks she could have spared a thought for Steph’s feelings.
“Kim has earned a notable name, and she can walk into any room and wear what she desires while flaunting her curves.

“She has reached a status where she doesn’t have to answer to anyone, and her fashion choices say that.
“Her fame has led her [to be] considered a trendsetter — but this particular sexy mermaid-style look was perhaps more for a red carpet and not for a wedding.”
That being said, Okerulu doesn’t think Kim was trying to upset the bride with her bold look.
“I believe Kim will wear what she feels and not look for anyone to advise her otherwise,” she said.

Ultimately, though, Okerulu notes that this wasn’t some Hollywood outsider whose wedding she was attending.
It was Steph Shep, who has been in Kim’s orbit for years and has nearly two million Instagram followers of her own.
“High-profile celebrities don’t live in the same reality that we live in,” Okerulu added.
“A flaw that we see in fashion may be their everyday life.
“With a stature like hers, her team has a pretty good understanding of what she is looking to project to the world regarding style.”
Kim, she said, clearly wanted to turn heads — and that wouldn’t have been news to Steph.
“Steph, who has had her share of fame and high-profile red-carpet appearances, can likely be rooting for her friend and doesn’t feel challenged by Kim’s look,” she said.
