Kim Kardashian looks angelic at the TIME 100 Gala in New York City

Kim Kardashian stole the show while leading the honorees and guests at the TIME 100 Gala held at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall in New York City on Wednesday.

The annual event is in celebration of those who the magazine has selected as the 100 most influential people in the world for 2023, which includes Kardashian.

The reality TV star-turned-law student, 42 – who recently spoke at the TIME100 Summit – wowed in a silky white gown that clung to her hourglass frame.

She was drenched in diamonds and carried a gorgeous pearlescent clutch as she posed for a sea of adoring photographers.

Her raven hair flowed down her back and chest in effortless waves and she amped up her gaze with a black smokey eyeshadow look.

Kim’s already plump pout was lined in a dupe nude liner and topped with a peachy pink gloss.

She had an ethereal glow to her and was captured offering a friendly wave in the direction of the cameras. 

While speaking at the TIME100 summit on Tuesday, the business woman admitted that she would be ‘happy’ to give up stardom to be a ‘full-time’ lawyer. 

Kim became a household name after starring in her family’s E! reality series Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which came to an end after 20 seasons on the air.

The Kardashian-Jenner clan has since moved their reality TV empire to Hulu, with the highly-anticipated third season of the show set to premiere in May.

But Kim has also been training as a lawyer since 2019 in memory of her dad Robert – who worked as a high-profile attorney but died in 2003 at the age of 59.

She’s also devoted herself to prison reform, which includes seeking justice for the wrongfully accused and reducing sentences for convicts with low-level crimes.

The influencer told Tuesday’s crowd that she ‘always jokes’ to her mother Kris Jenner that she will be ‘retiring’ her celebrity persona to focus on her law career.

”I would be just as happy being an attorney full-time. The journey just really opened up my eyes so much,’ she said.

Along with Kardashian, a slew of Hollywood A-listers hit the red carpet at the annual gala on Wednesday night.

Actors, singer, philanthropists, directors and more high-profile faces alternated between posing in front of the event’s signature red backdrop and a white one featuring the ‘TIME100’ logo and the night’s sponsors, which included Booking.com and Cadillac.

Grammy Award-winner Doja Cat left little to the imagination as she exposed her bust through a sheer black strapless top worn under a ruffled purple organza dress.

The singer gave her ensemble an edgy flair by slipping on a pair of red vinyl opera gloves and a pair of sky-high patent leather heels.
