Kim Kardashian turning 40 was certainly a guided occasion.
The KKW beauty founder jetted off to Marlon Brando’s The Brando Resort in Tahiti this week with 30 of her closest friends and family to celebrate the milestone. The private island boasts 35 luxury villas which rent for up to $20,000 a night and have private pools. The ultra luxurious vacation, reported to be worth $1 million, took place despite the global lockdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
For the big bash, Kardashian wore a Vivienne Westwood gold leather number featuring a tight corset top and flared mini-skirt. The frock hails from the British designer’s Spring/Summer 1988 “Time Machine” collection, which has been displayed at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum and the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC.
Kardashian styled her look with $890 Amina Muaddi “Henson” sculpted heels.

40 and feeling so humbled and blessed. There is not a single day that I take for granted, especially during these times when we are all reminded of the things that truly matter. For my birthday this year, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend it than with some of the people who have helped shaped me into the woman I am today. Before COVID, I don’t think any of us truly appreciated what a simple luxury it was to be able to travel and be together with family and friends in a safe environment. After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time. We danced, rode bikes, swam near whales, kayaked, watched a movie on the beach and so much more. I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is. #thisis40
This is the second vintage gold ensemble she rocked while celebrating her 40th. Months ago, at a pre-recorded party for Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the mom-of-four wore a strapless sparkly gold Dolce & Gabbana mini-dress from a 1992 collection paired with leg-wrapping metallic sandals from Rene Caovilla.
