Robin Williams vs. Kim Kardashian: Who Wore It Best

Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Image(NEW YORK) -- Robin Williams is the latest to weigh in on Kim Kardashian‘s all-floral ensemble for Monday’s Met Ball — claiming he looked better as a cross-dressing nanny in Mrs. Doubtfire.

“I think I wore it better!” the comedian wrote on Twitter, posting a photo of himself wearing a similar look for the 1993 hit film alongside a picture of Kardashian in her all-floral Givenchy design.

His jab comes a couple days after Kardashian received mixed reviews for the floral gown slit high on the thigh, with matching gloves and heels.

The outfit’s designer, Riccardo Tisci, defended Kardashian’s look to WWD, saying, “I think she looked amazing. She was the most beautiful pregnant woman I dressed in my career.”

He said he chose the look for the reality star, who is expecting her first child with beau Kanye West — a friend of Tisci — because “when you celebrate something, you give people flowers.”

Taking full responsibility for the look, he said Kardashian told him, "'Ricky, I love what you’re doing so much, I am in your hands.'”
