Kim Kardashian denied that she wore a shapewear garment beneath the black Stella McCartney dress she was spotted in two nights ago in Paris.
Kim Kardashian, 31, wrote on her blog yesterday: “That’s exactly how I bought it with those nude panels inside. So no Spanx here!”
Despite her denial, the reality star has long proved a fan of shapewear.
Kim Kardashian has been photographed on several occasions flashing versions of Spanx-like garments underneath her clothing.
The nude material, or something very similar to a Spanx product, was spotted wrapped around her upper thigh as she stepped out in a black and white dress for a business meeting in Los Angeles in March.
It had happened just one month prior when the star had been photographed attending a church service.
Although Kim Kardashian may have not intentionally set out to criticize the multi-million dollar brand, Spanx defended its products as a response to her denial.
A spokesman for the company wrote in a letter to Racked.com that its customers should proudly let their “Spanx shape show!”
The statement continued: “Whether it’s a Slimmer & Shine slip or a Stella McCartney dress with a Spanx-inspired liner, we say let your Spanx show.”
Many had assumed that Kim Kardashian had again worn the shapewear, only this time underneath the Stella McCartney dress as a familiar beige garment peeked out from beneath it.
Furthermore, the dress has been spotted without the beige underlay on multiple celebrities in recent times, such as Gisele Bundchen, Kate Winslet and Vogue Japan editor Anna Dello Russo, which further grew suspicion.
According to Kim Kardashian, she received the dress with the beige panel already attached to it.
She said: “I wore this gorgeous polka dot Stella McCartney dress out yesterday and I’ve seen some publications saying I’m flashing my Spanx or control underwear underneath the dress.
“Stella made a full collection with these sheer panels on the side, and this is how my dress came. Xo”
Coco Perez, the gossip website, had first made note of the beige garment beneath the black dress.
The post was titled: That’s Not How You Wear Spanx, Kim.
It read: “Kim Kardashian flashed more than just her underpants in Paris on Monday, she flashed her whole damn Spanx!”
