Twitter has some thoughts about Kim Kardashian's most recent fashion looks.

On Tuesday, the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star took to social media to share a few snaps taken during a visit with designers Donatella Versace and Kim Jones. The 40-year-old posed in a vintage Gucci by Tom Ford dress, strappy Helmut Lang heels, cropped cardigan, topped with a Sci-Fi Fantasy ball cap.

"Legends" she captioned the photo for her more than 234 million Instagram followers.

"Why is Kim K dressing like she can’t afford any expansion packs in The Sims?" one person tweeted.

"The baseball cap is a random item added to this outfit right? Like, it ain’t just me thinking this?" asked another.

"You really did need Kanye," tweeted one follower. "You've been looking terrible since he left you."

"Are you able to hire Kanye as a stylist at least? Because this is…," added another. "I don’t know Miss Kimberly. This look isn’t giving."

"In theory it’s supposed to contrast the rest of the semi-formal outfit. Wearing a very expensive dress and shoes and juxtaposing that with a baseball cap from an underground skateboard company," one follower explained. "But it just doesn’t work here."

Just last month during the "Keeping Up WIth The Kardashians" reunion, Kardashian was asked by Andy Cohen whether or not she plans to change her style in the next chapter of her professional life. The mother of four revealed that she would like to maintain her current aesthetic and embrace this next phase.

“I thought about this. And then I thought, ‘You can do it all. You can do whatever you want,'” she said. “Like I remember going to the White House one time and I was like, ‘Ooh, I just posted a bikini pic, you know, I hope they’re not looking at my Instagram while I’m in here!’ And then I thought, ‘You know what, you’ve gotta be you.'"

Although she feels empowered, the star said she will be mindful of what she wears for the sake of her children.

"‘F—k it. I’m 40! I’m in the best shape of my life and I want to post a bikini [picture] if I want to,'” she added. "I also don’t want to embarrass my kids or make them feel a way if they’re in high school and I’m the embarrassing mom that’s posing in selfies and in bikinis. There will be limits.”
