Kim Kardashian stuns in an edgy all-black ensemble complete with gloves and fuzzy sunglasses

Kim Kardashian cut a very glamorous figure in an all-black ensemble that included a fuzzy pair of sunglasses and matching handbag on Thursday. 

In a series of new pictures posted to her Instagram account, the 40-year-old reality star wore a pair of long black gloves and sexy high heel boots. 

She accessorized with gold statement earrings, a nude matte liquid lipstick and her waist-length brown hair in a sleek ponytail.

The mom-of-four’s post comes after her massively successful Saturday Night Live hosting gig over the weekend, which she called ‘probably one of the best experiences of’ her career.’

On Tuesday, she wrote: ‘I can’t wait to share my incredible SNL content with you over the next few days.’

‘The amount of work that the entire @nbcsnl team puts in to make a show like this even possible is unmatched!’ she continued. 

 I’m forever grateful for this experience and to everyone that supported me and worked so hard to make this all possible! Thank you! If you missed the show it’s now streaming on @hulu.  

Kim not only won positive reviews from fans over her performance, but she also drew enough viewers to marginally boost their ratings. 

Earlier this week, Kardashian gave fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse into her SNL hosting preparations as she posted to her Instagram grid for the first time since appearing on the show

Kim’s October 9 hosting stint earned a 3.8 household rating (live and same day) and a 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic, per Nielsen. 

Comparatively the season 47 opener with Owen Wilson on October 2, garnered a 3.5 household rating and a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 range, which is the show’s target demographic.

Using last week as a baseline, percentage wise Kim increased overall numbers by 8.5% and demographic numbers by 23%.

The platform however is launching Nielsen Streaming Video Ratings and will start by measuring across 10 streaming platforms including Hulu — which offers next day viewing and live viewing of SNL. 

News of Kim’s casting was perhaps the most sensational announcement since that of Elon Musk in Season 46, drawing mixed reactions from fans, but her good numbers seemed to be echoed in a flurry of Twitter statements.

Kim’s opening monologue packed a punch as she joked about her sex tape, said she divorced Kanye West because of his personality, touched on her family and plastic surgery and even called Kris Jenner’s boyfriend Corey Gamble a gold-digger.

The episode continued to feature memorable moments such as a Bachelorette spoof with celebrity suitors such as Blake Griffin, Chris Rock and John Cena, a Jasmine and Aladdin skit in which she planted a kiss on Pete Davidson and an impersonation of Kourtney Kardashian as a judge where she poked fun at her PDA with Travis Barker.

Not holding back! The reality star lampooned her sister Kourtney Kardashian and her relationship with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker 

Sealed with a kiss! She also shared a smooch with Pete Davidson
