Kim Kardashian Wore a 21-Year-Old Vintage Gucci Thong on Instagram

Kim Kardashian posted an Instagram yesterday to promote her KKW Contour Singles, but that’s not exactly what we were paying attention to. Accompanying the caption was a photo of the star wearing a neon-green outfit with a vintage Gucci thong rising above the waistband.

The caption for the photo said, “@kkwbeauty Contour Singles Available NOW kkwbeauty.com.” The thong is a 21-year-old piece that comes from former Gucci creative director Tom Ford’s 1997 collection. Ford sent models down the runway wearing just the black logo-ed thongs, and it’s still one of his most iconic pieces.

Kardashian also recently wore a neon pink thong bikini while vacationing on the beach in Miami. Could her exposed Gucci thong signal a return of the early-2000s trend? Here’s hoping! In the meantime, if you want your own Tom Ford-era Gucci thong, you can find one on eBay for a cool $1,800.
