Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker Go for “Elevated Goth” at the Oscars


Making a delightful cameo tonight on the Oscars red carpet was none other than Kourtney Kardashian and her fiancé Travis Barker. The two arrived like a gothic beacon of hot-and-heavy pheromones. Kardashian wore heels by Aquazzura and a body-skimming black dress—an archival piece from ‘80s-era Thierry Mugler sourced from the celebrity-beloved Tab Vintage—while Barker opted for an all-black Margiela suit complete with a tuxedo shirt, a jacket with a glinting pin on the lapel, artfully loose pants, dress shoes, and Prada sunglasses.

The two have been in sync with each other’s style for quite some time. This past summer, we saw Kardashian infuse Barker’s penchant for punk into her look. She tried out an itty-bitty black silk dress and a T-shirt that read “suck” and “bite.” Memorably, she even wore some of Barker’s own garb, including a vintage shirt from the grindcore band Cannibal Corpse, which featured the image of a decaying skeleton-man eating his own intestines.

The duo made their red carpet debut at the MTV VMAs back in September, where Barker wore a spike studded blazer and Kardashian opted for a body-skimming leather dress. As for tonight’s red carpet moment from the pair, it’s a bit more of an elevated take on the couple’s general aesthetic. Though their best accessory is their signature PDA.
