Kim Kardashian Is The Queen Of Metallic Bikinis, And Here’s The Proof

Look back at the many times Kim K rocked metallic swimwear.


Kim Kardashian is no stranger to capturing the perfect swimsuit post. The reality TV star turned social media mogul turned business boss has built a brand off her curvaceous body, usually covered by an itty-bitty bikini. As she’s reinvented her look for the new decade, Kardashian’s swimwear has become tinier, with light-catching materials. Here’s a look back at her many metallic swimsuits.

Perhaps Kardashian’s most iconic metallic moment, her SKIMS Swim campaign swept the internet. Brand new SKIMS bikinis and one-pieces were photographed poolside in a 1970s mansion, captured by Nadia Lee Cohen. Kardashian sported metallic silver sarongs and gold bathing suits, complete with teased hair fit for a passed-era Miami trophy wife. 

Girls Night

Not quite wearing a full bathing suit, Kardashian wore a metallic bikini top on a night out with her besties. She paired the top with high-waist, skin-tight pants of the same material. Sheer high-heeled booties and ultra-long hair finished out the party look.

Kardashian introduced her silver SKIMS one-piece in a Sports Illustrated cover story. A circular cutout revealed the star’s stomach while the metallic material hugged her hips. Photographer Greg Swales captured Kardashian emerging from the water with a matching silver surfboard.

Spacey Selfie

Kardashian teased her SKIMS Swim collection with a swimsuit selfie. She posed for the mirror in a monochromatic silver bikini set and futuristic sunglasses. With her new platinum hair swept back in a bun and minimal accessories, Kardashian looked like the opposite of a beach bum.
