Kim Kardashian West Used Tea Bags and a Hotel Sink to DIY Dye Her Cannes Red Carpet Dress

Even Kim Kardashian West is not immune to the “one particular nude fits all” mantra that has pervaded the vogue and attractiveness market.

Last week ahead of heading to the De Grisogono red carpet in Cannes, the 35-year-outdated mogul determined to dye her custom Lan Yu Couture gown’s “nude” underlay with a product identified in your pantry: tea bags. Why? “We had to try out to darken the nude mesh dress below the silver layer, due to the fact it was also light to match my skin tone,” she explained on her site.
Kardashian West — or, maybe far more probably, a member of her glam crew — positioned Earl Grey tea bags and the dress into a water-filled hotel area sink for thirty minutes. “It took correct up until the red carpet for it to dry,” she wrote. “We had to blow dry it proper before I place it on and it was even now a little damp — but it worked and it manufactured the mesh a far better match to my skin tone.” Kardashian West is not the mastermind behind this genius hack. For all people not interested in dishing out $two.99 a month for entry to her locked up website, YouTube is full of tips and guides on how to dye just about something — material, paper and even hair — with tea. Fortunately, brand names like Naja. BjГ¶rn Borg. Christian Louboutin and dance apparel organization Mahogany Blues to identify a number of, have realized that not everyone’s “nude” is a variation of peach hues. This way, women like Kardashian West, can stick to consuming tea as opposed to dousing their clothes with it minutes ahead of rushing out of the house.
