Throwback Photos of Kim Kardashian and Her Sisters as Party Girls

There was a time when Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe were better known for dancing on tables than wearing couture.

Long before the Kardashian sisters adopted high fashion, they were dancing on tables at nightclubs. Before Kourtney was a mother of three or Kim was besties with Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci, the three sisters weren’t afraid to get photographed getting turned up.

    Before Kim Kardashian was Kim Kardashian, she was Paris Hilton’s friend and sometimes assistant. In 2006 she could often be spotted basking in the glow of Paris’ spotlight while wearing skin-tight dresses and tearing up the dance floor.

    In her Hilton handbag-holder days, Kim was a permanent fixture on the party scene. The tackier the better, as seen here at Sean “Diddy” Combs White Party in 2006.

    Still in Paris’ shadow, Kim could often be found throwing up gang signs (spew) will fellow C-list celebrity revelers like The Game and Elliot Mintz.

    Remember when Kim used to date Nick Cannon? And when she and Khloe used to dance around him while he was dancing on the furniture? Eventually, the Kardashian sisters would take his lead and get up there too…

    Now this — this! — is something else. At the PLAYSTATION 3 launch in 2006, Kourtney and Kim partied with Lindsay Lohan, and Kim went all out with her dance floor “O” face. We’re starting to wonder if the girls look back on these days and cringe, the same way we do when we think about dancing to Spice Girls songs in the late ’90s.

    These days, Kim poses looking moody in couture gowns with her couture-clad baby. But in 2006, she had no qualms about doing sexy poses with novelty party props in public (here with Heidi Blair of Zino Platinum Crown Series Cigars)

    Kim was a big fan of throwing her arms up in the air and pulling a provocative sex face on the dance floor. Kourtney is abstaining, but we can’t ignore that white, bat wing monstrosity of a dress. Note: this photo was taken at TAO (in 2007), one of the favorite haunts of the Kardashians in their party girl days.

    At a fashion event in Las Vegas in 2007, Kim pulls the ultimate party gal move: blowing a kiss to a fellow guest across the room.

    There’s no way Kim would be photographed like this now. Messy hair, ’80s throwback dress — say what you want about the woman but she really has developed her taste and style. Here she is with pal Nate Newell in Las Vegas in 2007, partying it up.

    At the premiere party for Keeping Up with the Kardashians in 2007, Kim looked like a drunk teenager at prom as she was photographed making suggestive moves with friend Robin Antin.

    2007 was the year of the Kardashians dancing on things, and often around sparklers. Kim was hosting a party at TAO, a staple “gig” for Kardashian party girls back in the day.

    Warning: it all starts going a bit downhill from here. Kim, Kourt, and Khloe get silly with a stripper pole for Kim’s 27th birthday. Each does her signature party girl move: Kourtney’s looking confused, Kim is looking sexual, and Khloe’s holding a drink above her head.

    At the same party, the girls ham is up for the crowd. Only a true party girl dances on a raised platform at the club. Everyone knows that.

    Oh my! Is that really the same Kimmy K we know today?

    Kim really got into peasant earrings as she boogied with friend Brittny Gastineau at a casino opening in Missouri in 2007. Back then, if there was a casino to be opened, you could count on Kim to dance at the party.

    We’d actually really love to be a fly on the wall here, watching Khloe take on NBA player Shaquille O’Neal in a game of pool in 2008. Bring back this Khloe, we say!

    There’s nothing refined about Kourtney sipping on this giant tropical drink.

    Kim and Khloe sexy dance together at a Maxim party in 2008, and it looks pretty sweaty. Back when the girls let their hair down and didn’t look perfectly coiffed all the time.

    Here’s one more of Khloe doing her signature “Dance With Drink” move for fortitude in 2009.
