Don't be tardy for the party in Alexander McQueen

Listen, we'll be the first to admit that we usually wouldn't take style tips from Kim, but this woman has turned over a new leaf.

Lately she's cast aside those figure hugging, cleavage bearing body con dresses for some elegant picks off the the runway and we're really liking it!

But of all the wonderful choices she's made lately, hands down, by far this Alexander McQueen dress has been the best one yet.

It's got those signature McQueen statement cuffs combined with a high neck and figure flattering lace panels that give the illusion of a cinched waist.

And can we talk about that gorgeous cotton lace?

Make no mistake, we're tempted to forego our rent to make this fashion sacrifice. But if you've got an extra $5300 burning up your pocket then by all means- click right and nab one for yourself.

The nearly 21-month-old child put on a brave face as the cut at his eyebrow line looked to be pretty deep with bruising around his temples.

Kim later updated her fans on the status of the youngster as she posted a screenshot of Kane on FaceTime with his twin sister Kaia while he was being prepped by the doctor.

The reality star posted the cute photo with the message: 'Alllll Kane kept saying was,"Kaia Kaia" o they were on FaceTime while the doctor was prepping Kane.

'Kane is sound asleep after a few stitches! Thank you for all your prayers I'm wore out.'

She posted another update how he was doing on Instagram on Monday, along with a picture of him playing in his toy car.

Her comical caption said: 'I'm doing great. Scars are sexy, at least that's what my mommy says. Signed Kane.'

Kim has not revealed what actually has happened but this is not the first time one of her young children has been on the receiving end of unwanted pain.

During an episode of her reality series, Don't Be Tardy, aired last summer, there were fights and tears in her family's Atlanta mansion as her toddler son fell and fractured his leg.

The family nanny was left distraught on the episode as Kim's teenage daughter Brielle blamed her for the nasty injury to little KJ's leg.

He suffered a spiral fracture when he fell as he was 'roughhousing' with nanny Lana in a bedroom of Kim's Georgia home. 

KJ was rushed to an Atlanta hospital where he had a cast put on his injured leg.

'You know I have forgiven Lana the second that it happened because I know that it wasn't intentional. But that does't mean that my heart isn't heavy and my mind isn't going a little crazy,' said Kim.

After X-rays were taken the family was told that KJ had a spiral fracture in his leg. 

The Florida-born mother-of-six currently stars in the fourth season of Don't Be Tardy, which airs Sundays on Bravo.
