On Christmas Eve, the Kardashian-Jenners gathered for their annual holiday party. Kim Kardashian was dressed impeccably in an off-the-shoulder, white trimmed gown that gave off a winter princess aesthetic. She shared a video of her on her Instagram Story modeling the full-length look, which was one of the most unique dresses of the night.
She also appeared sledding with Paris Hilton:
Her sister Kylie Jenner poked fun at Kardashian being absent from the sisters’ TikTok, where they all showed off their looks. “We lost Kim,” Jenner wrote.
The Kardashians’ Christmas Eve party has been going on since 1978, and in the last few years, Kris Jenner’s daughters have been working to take over planning and hosting.
“Our Christmas Eve party was always this fun party that I just remember being friends and family and my grandparents and cousins. It was just the best night ever,” Kardashian shared in 2019. “But my mom’s been doing it for so long that it’s turned into something different. It’s kind of a party just for my mom and mostly her friends.”
She added, “We want it to be a place that we can just have fun and it’s all of our friends and definitely family and my mom’s friends, too. But a good mix of both so we can have a good time and really just enjoy each other.”
In the days leading up to the party, Kardashian showed off her many interior and exterior Christmas decorations. The SKIMS founder went all out in her backyard, blanketing the ground and trees in fake snow. On Saturday, December 23, she offered her followers a tour of the property, saying in a video on her Stories, “The backyard is coming together. This is so crazy. It’s like a full forest of Christmas trees.”
She joked, “It snowed in Calabasas!”
“If you look outside there’s snow everywhere and it just looks so beautiful and so lit up,” she said. “It’s like how you’d want to walk through the streets of Colorado. This does look a little scary, but wow.”
In addition to the snow, the branches were hung with bright white lights, which is the The Kardashian star’s preferred color at Christmas. Her trees in the house were similarly adorned.
