Kim Kardashian And The Case Of The Tragic Peplum Pants [PHOTOS]

Oh gurl.

If you thought Kim Kardashian’s navy suit was unflattering, then you haven’t laid eyes on these amazing peplum pants.  Kardashian left her house this morning (February 22nd) wearing the printed wonder, which should go into the discards pile.  Like, yesterday.

Kim later joined her sister Kourtney Kardashian and Kourt’s squishy, adorable daughter Penelope to film a segment for Chelsea Lately in Toluca Lake.  Babies in tights!  Babies in tights!!!

Today, Kim released a statement in response to an interview she gave recently to DuJour Magazine.  The journalist reportedly took her comment about Kanye West not wanting her to sign autographs out of context, so Kim wanted to set the record straight. 

In a recent interview I was asked what Kanye had taught me that I value the most. I said privacy. I have learned to understand that it’s important to have boundaries, especially when we are having a private date night dinner. So if someone came up to the table at dinner, I used to get up, take pics and sign an autograph in the middle of our meal. Now, I know that this time is our private time, and I absolutely will as soon as I’m done eating! It’s not that he won’t let me sign autographs for my fans… far from it! Just as soon as we’re done! Totally understandable! I have learned to understand the importance of privacy and boundaries, something that I haven’t really learned to embrace before.

Kim added that her sisters set boundaries as well.  Khloe doesn’t sign autographs or pose for photos with fans when she’s with husband Lamar Odom, neither does Kourtney when she’s with her children at the playground or out shopping.
