No glitz and glamour here.

For Kim Kardashian's first public appearance since filing for divorce from Kris Humphries, the star bared no skin nor smiles.

The somber-looking star stepped out for the Kardashian Kollection handbag launch in Sydney, Australia Tuesday, where she ditched her usual asset-enhancing minis and instead covered up with a loose-fitting black cardigan and a conservative high-collar dress. See more pics of Kim from PopSugar.

Kardashian, 31, announced that she was calling it quits with Humphries on October 31, just 72 days after they tied the knot with a $10 million wedding August 20.

Tuesday, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star broke the silence on her official blog where she penned a heartfelt explanation of her short-lived marriage.

"I love with all of my heart and soul," she wrote. "I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed in to something too soon. I believed in love and the dream of what I wanted so badly."

"I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn't get off when now I know I probably should have," she continued. "I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn't know how to and didn't want to disappoint a lot of people."
