Kim Kardashian with bust of pope
Fashion icon Kim Kardashian upset internet users when she wore a revealing dress to the Vatican.

Is it disrespectful to wear revealing clothing in sacred spaces?

That’s the debate Kim Kardashian sparked after she visited the Vatican in a white lace cutout dress that many people insist wasn’t exactly appropriate attire for such a sacrosanct place.

While photos of the media mogul’s Vatican visit accrued some 3 million ‘likes’ (and counting!) on Instagram, many of the thousands of comments were from disappointed fans.

"The most inappropriate dress worn to go to church let alone to visit the Vatican," stated one commenter. Another replied: "I love you Kim but this is so inappropriate. I know your brand is wearing the least amount of fabric but for us Catholics this is a sacred place.”

While Kardashian insists that she “fully covered up while inside St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel,” the photos are inspiring a larger debate on modesty in sacred spaces.

Some Very Strict Church Clothes

The Vatican is notorious for turning away visitors who don't follow its strict dress code, which is listed on its website as follows:

"Sleeveless and / or low-cut garments, shorts above the knee, miniskirts and hats are not permitted. The requirement of decorum extends also to any visible personal objects as well as similarly visible distinctive personal signs (such as, for example, tattoos) that may offend Catholic morality, the Catholic religion and common decency."

Adding to the outrage, black is traditionally worn, and generally only Catholic queens wear white to the Vatican, a custom heads of state, world leaders, and celebrities typically follow when visiting the holy site. Although the formal ban on non-black attire’s no longer in effect, many found this to be yet another reason the decision to wear a lacy white dress was in poor taste.

This isn't the first time revealing clothes and strict dress codes have recently caused an uproar. Late last year, we posted about Egyptian model Salma El-Shimy, who wore a tightly-fitting pharaoh costume for a photoshoot in front of the pyramids in Giza, Egypt. Both El-Shimy and her photographer were later arrested as media outlets across the conservative country branded her photoshoot “provocative and offensive,” and one government official even said about her that "anyone who shows negligence when it comes to antiquities or our unique Egyptian civilization will be punished." El-Shimy, however, received praise from many Egyptians on social media for the photos, saying that if the country wants to grow its international reputation and appeal to tourists, it needs to let women dress how they want. Arresting people for dressing the "wrong" way will inevitably deter visitors, they say.

Making a Statement

Maybe there’s more to it, though. While Kardashian’s well-known for wearing revealing clothing, perhaps she chose this particular garment to send a message. As fashion magazine Vogue pointed out, Kardashian’s dress, designed by Mexican fashion designer Victor Barragán, is based on the Mexican Inquisition, where the Catholic Church persecuted alleged witchcraft practitioners, specifically women. As he told Vogue, “the collection is about sexuality as power and protection from widespread patriarchal domination… There’s a sense of female empowerment throughout the collection.” Was Kardashian using her clothing to subtly comment on patriarchy and Catholicism? It's not out of the realm of possibility for a woman who's very tuned-in to the world of fashion.

Whatever Kardashian’s reason for wearing the revealing dress, it’s clear that many weren’t happy with her choice of apparel. 

What do you think? Should she have worn a more modest outfit when visiting the Vatican? Was the dress truly disrespectful and inappropriate, or is the outrage being overblown?

    While I feel rules/people/cultures need to lighten up about what women wear (it is the 21st Century after all), I think Kim’s “statement” dress, regardless of what she may have been trying to say, was way out of line. I don’t care if she is a celebrity or not. That dress has serious sexual undertones, and that, in and of itself, makes it completely inappropriate and disrespectful as attire to visit the Vatican. Clothing rules aside, does she really have so little respect for herself? There are times when wearing certain things is just out of place. I mean, would she wear that kind of outfit to a funeral?! Come on, Kim K. Grow up.

    1. John Anderson's Avatar John Anderson

      That's the problem, She's grown older, but has not been forced to grow up when it comes to behaving appropriately. Because her family has had money all her life, she's been able to pay cash for her gaffs, rather than being punished by her parents. Like many of her generation that grew up with money, she has no real concept of punishment. People DO need to lighten up, about a great many things, when it comes to sexuality, but the concept of dressing appropriately for the situation is also important. She doesn't need to be wearing a burkha, but, like you said, "would she go to a funeral in that" would be a good way to judge if it was appropriate to wear in a theocracy that is so conservative that it can't admit that it has made many mistakes in the past.

      Pastor, the LOVELY Kim Kardashian did the vile Vatican a favor by visiting that hypocritical Sexist, Racist place!!!

      Nothing can offend idol-worshipping Catholic morality, because the Godless Roman Catholic Church and the Vatican are immoral. The white god idol-worshipping Catholic religion is offensive to Father God and My VICTORIOUS Twin Brother Christ due to its historic and present persecution and killing of innocent men, women and CHILDREN!!! Plus the vile and vicious Vatican does not have the common decency to obey God’s First and Second Commandments in Exodus 20:3-5 which declares to the Vatican and to the world, but especially the vile Vatican:

      1. You shalt have no other gods before Me.
      2. You shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of ANY THING that is in Heaven above, or that is in the Earth beneath, or that is in the water under the Earth:
      3. You shalt not Bow Down thyself to them, nor Serve them: for I the LORD your God am a JEALOUS GOD, visiting the iniquity [SIN] of the fathers [and the mothers] upon the CHILDREN unto the third and fourth generation of them that HATE ME!!!

      The idol-worshipping parents are the ones destroying their CHILDREN even beyond the third and fourth generation with idolatrous teachings!!! Therefore the guilty Vatican and the guilty parents teach the INNOCENT CHILDREN TO HATE GOD!!! As the American corrupt Just-Ice system says: Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

    Are there rules before entering the Vatican about what is permissible wear? Every mosque I have been to has someone at the door to confirm that we are wearing the appropriate wear for the mosque.

I'd like to put this in perspective. Taking a dump is just as natural yet nobody wants to sit there and look at a terd falling out of someone's bunghole. It's no different.

    I feel like this is something of a non-story. The Vatican has a dress-code which is enforced by Vatican staff on entry to buildings. Assuming she didn't break in or change outfits after entry (which would both seem bigger stories), then we can presume that the Vatican staff permitted her entry - ergo, her outfit was deemed to be acceptable to the staff on duty.

    If anyone has an issue with her choice of attire in such a place, it should therefore be taken up with the Vatican, not Kim herself.

  1. Br'er George's Avatar Br'er George

    I wonder why she's posing with Sixtus.

    I don't think he'd like that too much!

    Sixtus extended the penalty of excommunication relating to the Roman Catholic Church's teaching on contraception and abortion.

    While the Church taught that abortion and contraception were gravely sinful actions ("mortal sins"), it did not apply to all mortal sins the additional penalty of excommunication.

    Although homicide had always required this penalty, contraception had not.

    Patristic and Medieval theologians and physicians had long speculated and debated over the exact moment the fertilised egg became a human being.

    While there was broad agreement among them that life was present at conception and that it could only become a human being, the thinking was that this did not necessarily mean God had infused the rational, immortal soul into the body at conception.

    Following Aristotle, many in the West had theorized that the matter had to be prepared to a certain point before this could happen and, prior to then, there was only a vegetative or sensitive soul, but not a human soul.

    This meant that killing an organism before the human soul is infused would still be a grave sin of abortion (or at least contraception), but that it was not properly a homicide and, thus, did not require excommunication

    Some theologians argued that only after proof of the "quickening" (when the mother can feel the fetus's movement in her womb, usually about 20 weeks into gestation) that there was incontrovertible evidence that ensoulment had already occurred.

    Until Sixtus V, canon lawyers had applied the code from Gratian whereby excommunications were only given to abortions after the quickening.

    In 1588 the pope issued a papal bull, Effraenatam or Effrenatam ("Without Restraint"), which declared that the canonical penalty of excommunication would be levied for any form of contraception and for abortions at any stage in fetal development.

    The reasoning on the latter would be that the soul of the unborn child would be denied Heaven.

    Sixtus also attempted in 1586 to introduce into the secular law in Rome the Old Testament penalty for adultery, which is death.

    The measure ultimately failed.

    Sixtus V died on 27 August 1590 from malarial fever. He was the last pope to date to use the name Sixtus. The pope became ill with a fever on 24 August; it intensified the following day.

    As Sixtus V lay on his deathbed, he was loathed by his political subjects, but history has recognized him as one of the most important popes.

    On the negative side, he could be impulsive, obstinate, severe, and autocratic.

    On the positive side, he was open to large ideas and threw himself into his undertakings with energy and determination; this often led to success.

    His pontificate saw great enterprises and great achievements.

    The changes wrought by Sixtus on the street plan of Rome were documented in a film,

    Rome: Impact of an Idea, featuring Edmund N. Bacon and based on sections of his book Design of Cities.

    I think that bodily autonomy is a basic human right, and that she ultimately can wear whatever she wants, but the lack of respect for others, and the need for constant attention and validation is coming through strongly with that choice.

      It was the wrong way to dress to visit a Sacred space - unless she is a witch, dancing naked in a sacred grove. When you visit a Sacred space, or anywhere else, you respect the dress code of that place. If you want to dress as you please, do so in your own home. That’s bodily autonomy- not doing as you like, regardless of anyone else’s feelings.

    I understand the feelings of the Devout and Staunch Christians and agree with the thought of having respect in Holy Surroundings. I also remember the teachings of the Bible that God is the one judge and we are not to judge or Brothers and Sisters. We are to love them regardless and turn the proverbial cheek when wronged by them, and to forgive our trespassers and our trespasses. What would Jesus do? I think he'd start handing out rocks and say "He who is without Sin, may cast the first stone!". Now isn't wagging tongues a Sin? God would say, "Go and Sin no more!".

    Kardashian's dress was very disrespectful. I am not Catholic but certainly respect sacred places. No matter what faith if you can't show respect to a place that some hold sacred or holy then you should not be there. Kardashian was wrong.

    Who are we mere mortals to judge Kim K if perhaps visiting a synagogue some day dressed in a black Miami Beach thong ? Would Elohim manifest and cast she out as the modern day Lilith Narcissis or graciously offer a humble Kittel as a gift of humility? Obviously, our culture of “money changers” bestows a gratuitous amount of adulation upon the fine Miss Kim, wasting our precious time on this tiresome, as well as, boorish narrative dedicated to her dubious motives and immature character flaws. So what will the image brokers create next for entertainment and more importantly profit? Hmmm .. next adventure, the lovely Kim twerking in a Mosque wearing a open side cleavage revealing Hajib with Smokey aviator sunglasses as a tangential protest of the sexual mutilation of Muslim women… designed of course by a Madison Avenue fashion house? This action potentially could create a maelstrom of social controversy inadvertently creating the “New” Age Holy Wars and a marketing bonanza for the empire Hedonism. So as I stand in line at the grocery store, daydreaming of endless laundry chores and the weekly dinner time menus, I’ll try to ignore the latest rabble of show biz rags sporting entertainment “eye” candy and salacious pop-culture gossip. At that time take a moment, ask for serenity and Pray that individuals will seek a power greater than themselves to begin the actions of service to others void of recompense as your ultimate gift in life because this truly is where Power and Peace dwell void of worldly bling. Blessings Friends !!
