Proving she won't be ditching her favourite bodycons just because she's pregnant, the reality TV star-and-fashionista turned heads in the sizzling creation as she headed to 1 Oak Nightclub at the Mirage resort.

Cut to just below the knee, the dress flaunted Kim’s growing shape – and

revealed a hint of a baby bump – hugging her infamous hourglass figure.

Keeping the rest of her look to a minimum, the 32-year-old wore her brunette locks pulled to one side in a relaxed, fishtail plait.

Kim finished off her look with natural make up, adding kohled eyes and nude lips with just a hint of a blush on her cheeks.

The star’s dress recalled a top fashion trend of 2012, as a whole host of stars hit red-carpets around the globe in vampish creations.
