Talk about kickin' off 2012 with a bang!

The 31-year-old reality star, sporting super-straight hair and bangs, celebrated New Year's Eve while hosting a huge bash at Tao nightclub ... Kim's "favorite place" in Sin City.

The hostess with the mostess, who gave a toast to the crowd with a Midori cocktail, said the following about the celebration:

    "It's a tradition to ring in the New Year here at Tao! I am ready to move forward and not look back. I learned a lot of about myself this past year and at the end of the day you always have to trust your gut. You've got to believe in love. I still do."

Kim K looked stunning in a white Gucci long sleeve mini dress, Loren jewels and Christian Louboutin heels.

Samantha Ronson hit the DJ booth to spin tunes for the raging party. Check out Kim's mom Kris Jenner and friend Mark Ballas who both couldn't help but get jiggy on the dance floor. Loves it!


Kris surprised Kim by having the DJ spin the reality star's song "Jam." What a night to remember!
