Kim Kardashian: Her 24 Most Hideous Fashion Moments

by at .  Updated at .

On May 3rd, Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West were crowned by Vogue Magazine as the 2016 Costume Institute Gala's best-dressed couple.

It wasn't always the case for Kimmy, though.  

At one point, she could have served as the poster child for Bebe, Wet Seal or Macy's junior section.

We're talking hoops, faux Missoni knits and stiletto boots found in most Nine West stores circa 2006.

For those of you who graduated college in or around 2005, prepare yourself for the most painful trip down memory lane.

Because before there was Arty Kim, there was Bebe Kim.
