KOURTNEY Kardashian’s Oscars debut ‘stings’ for sister Kim as the star has ‘always wanted to be accepted by Hollywood’, a source has exclusively told The Sun.
Kourtney wowed on the red carpet with fiancé Travis Barker
Kim Kardashian opted for a scene-stealing gown for the Vanity Fair after party
The Poosh creator wowed on the red carpet in a figure-hugging Thierry Mugler dress as she supported the drummer, who was part of the All Star Band.
Kim was stuck watching the ceremony on TV and although she posted her support for her sister’s “iconic” look, a source said Kourtney getting an invite did “sting” a little.
An insider exclusively told The Sun: “Kim is so happy for Kourtney but part of her wonders if she is slipping on the social scale.
“For the first time Kourtney is receiving as much if not more attention than her, while her name is mostly just tied to Kanye and their messy divorce.
“She isn’t jealous of Kourtney necessarily but I think it stings a little that she was invited to the Oscars because Kim has always been desperate to be accepted by the Hollywood elite and wants to be taken seriously.
“Watching Kourtney walk the red carpet was bittersweet, but she’s extremely proud of her and loves seeing her happy with Travis after years of being on and off with Scott.”
A separate source told The Sun that Kim still had a pretty good Oscars experience, walking the red carpet at the Vanity Fair after party and celebrating with Jay Z and Beyonce at their famous Chateau Marmont bash.
The insider said: “Kim later went with her sisters Khloe and Kendall to Madonna’s private party which went on until the early hours of the morning.
“It was packed with A listers, everyone from Leonardo DiCaprio to Robert Pattinson was there.”
Kourtney appeared to be making a night of it with Travis instead of her sisters, and shared a photograph of her dining at West Hollywood eatery Crossroads Kitchen eating “fried olives for two”.
Kim, 41, who partied without boyfriend Pete Davidson stunned in blue skintight Balenciaga gown, which featured cut-out details at the back and a long, dramatic train.
Fans of Keeping Up With The Kardashians slammed the mom and businesswoman for trying to “upstage” her sister at the party.
“Upstaging?” one asked on Reddit, while sharing a photo of her bold outfit.
Another agreed, commenting: “Kim’s dress is a lot nicer than Kourt’s.”
Others blasted Kim’s go-to bodysuit and gloves look, with one writing: “This is the Oscars*. The f**king OSCARS. People are getting f**king STYLED, Kim.”
“The only hope left for Kim to impress anyone and to restore herself to ‘fashion icon’ status is the Met Gala,” another user added.
Earlier in the night, Oscars host Regina Hall poked fun at the beauty mogul while Kourtney watched on with Travis.
SHADE FROM REGINA
Regina decided to throw shade at the E! star while handing out some tongue-in-cheek advice to Dame Judi Dench.
Walking through the audience, Regina said: “Dame Judi Dench… we have an inspirational quote for you.”
“You know because you didn’t win tonight,” added co-host Wanda Skyes.
Regina continued: “A quote from Kim Kardashian… work harder.”
Both Dame Judi and the rest of the audience began to burst out laughing over the snarky comment.
The shade referred to Kim’s controversial remarks about work and success that she made to Variety magazine earlier this month.
