Kim Kardashian may still be feeling the brunt of bad vibes coming her way, spurred by her dramatic wedding and 72-day marriage that ended in divorce from Kris Humphries. In order to cope with the criticism, or just send a powerful message to the public, she recently stepped out wearing a strong fashion statementÂ—an evil eye Â—perhaps to fend off those sideways glances from her naysayers?!
On Friday, Kardashian, 31, headed to the Chanel boutique in Los Angeles for a bit of retail therapy. And from the looks of the multitude of bags she left with, it was a successful shopping trip! However, her look was miles away from the classic sophistication of Chanel. Rather, the Kourtney and Kim Take New York star went for a boho edge with her long wavy hair, slouchy crochet sweater and slightly distressed denim jeans, all topped off with a rather interesting headpiece bearing an evil eye charm that landed in the center of her forehead.
No, she wasn't channeling any form of inner Cyclops, but she was rocking a charm that has plenty of meaning in other cultures. As Daily Mail confirms, "someone with an evil eye causes harm to another, or is perhaps jealous of another's good luck... a way to ward off its nefarious influence is by wearing a likeness of the eye as a talisman, which is what Kim is doing." Coincidentally, the headpiece, which almost has a regal Cleopatra-like aura about it, was designed by Kim Kardashian's friend Nicole Richie as part of her House of Harlow 1960 line. So rather than buying into the history behind the meaning of an evil eye, maybe the reality show diva was just supporting her friend while probably also desiring to stir up buzz about her unusual style choice.
After all, Daily Mail confirms she already had plenty of protection during the shopping outing, thanks to her security detail and bodyguards. Nevertheless, given the boos that echoed the sports stadium during Kim Kardashian's recent basketball game day with sister Khloe Kardashian and mom Kris Jenner, it sounds like she could have really used her evil eye talisman there, too. For that matter, her ex Kris Humphries who has also been dealt his fair share of criticism and boos might want to invest in his own evil eye, too... maybe just don't go the headpiece route.
