Uh oh! It looks like Kim Kardashian didn’t get the memo. Over the weekend, the 42-year-old reality TV mistakenly attended Tracee Ellis Ross‘ 50th birthday dinner in full costume, even though it “wasn’t a costume party. ”
The SKIMS CEO poked fun at the hilarious blunder on Instagram, posting a photo of herself dressed as X-Men’s Mystique alongside Ross.
“That time I showed up to a birthday dinner in full costume when it wasn’t a costume party! Happy Birthday to the most beautiful kind soul @traceeellisross,” she wrote.
Ross, who was all smiles in the photo, dazzled in a beautiful cherry red gown that she styled up with a matching off-the-shoulder jacket and shiny statement jewelry.
Before attending the birthday bash, Kim posted a few photos of herself posing as the legendary Anti-hero on social media. The buzzing socialite wore a blue skin-tight leather body suit that featured scales just like the iconic X-men character. Kim even channeled the super mutant’s slick-back red hair and glowing eyes. Another photo posted to Kim’s Instagram captured her posing with her best gals, Olivia Pierson and Natalie Halcro, who also dressed up as X-men characters.
“Magik, Mystique, Selene,” the California native captioned the photo.
On Twitter, some fans questioned why Tracee Ellis Ross didn’t have a Halloween-themed birthday party to celebrate the holiday over the weekend.
“Who has a party around Halloween and doesn’t make it themed appropriately? Kim understands social cues better than yall!” wrote one person on Twitter. While another user commented: “Who does a birthday party the day before Halloween and not make it a costume party.”
Some people rushed in to defend Ross.
“It’s a bday dinner. You can’t assume it’s a Halloween themed party. Some people don’t care for Halloween,” chimed in one fan. While another person tweeted, “She knew it wasn’t a costume party please.”
Yikes! Well, you got to admit, this was pretty hilarious either way. Thankfully, it looks like Tracee took the fashion faux pas in stride.
