Kim Kardashian braves the New York heat in black leather look

Never let them see you sweat.

Temperatures soared to over 90 degrees in New York City on Wednesday — but Kim Kardashian won’t let something as mundane as the weather cramp her style.

The Skims founder was waved goodbye in Manhattan in a heavy black leather jacket and a pair of her beloved Balenciaga panniers, without a single drop of sweat on her forehead.

She doubled down on her dedication to climate-defying fashion and stepped out later the same day wearing a (zipped!) Balenciaga track jacket ($1,750) and pants ($1,150), but somehow she didn’t pass out.

It’s not the first time Kardashian, 41, has chosen enigmatic looks for a heatwave; in July 2020, she braved a 90-degree day in California in a sweaty green leather jumpsuit. At New York Fashion Week in 2015, she donned a fur coat and over-the-knee suede boots, despite temperatures reaching the mid-’80s — while pregnant with son Saint, no less.

And in 2018, she even joked about her apparent immunity to heat and humidity by sharing a street style photo of herself in a slouchy Yeezy sweatshirt and another pair of thigh boots, joking: “It was like 110 in Calabasas.”

Sure, Kardashian has an air-conditioned SUV that idles outdoors wherever she goes. Still, wouldn’t she be more comfortable sweating it out in a tank top and jeans like the rest of us?

On the other hand, she mentioned that she resorted to a sauna suit to lose weight for her Marilyn Monroe Met Gala moment — so maybe this is just her high-fashion way to maintain her progress.
