5 Reasons We Know Kanye West is Dressing Kim Kardashian…and Want Him To Stop
Kanye West, what have you done?
Sorry for the outburst but Kimye is distressing me, Glamazons. And it’s not because they’re a publicity stunt as Oprah so boldly calls out in her interview (love her!). It’s because the one thing you couldn’t take away from Kim Kardasian, after the transparent PR scams, the monotone voice (am I the only one annoyed by this?) and the dramatic reality show antics, was that the girl could dress.
Kim Kardashian serving pre-Kanye
She would drape her curvy frame in a sickening designer ‘fit, throw on a pair of shades, pumps, a statement bag, call the paparazzi and give life on the fashion blogs. There were even times she would go regal (pulling that hair in a bun) and after seeing her expertly-styled separates, I actually believed she looked chic.
These days, however, I don’t even know who she is anymore. The “leather in the summertime” (“Waiting To Exhale” voice) and ankle boot Kim is NOT. IT. And there’s one person to blame: Kanye West.
Here are five reasons why:
Anyone who would send fur backpacks down the runway for a Spring collection has no problem dressing a girl in Christian Louboutin snakeskin thigh-high boots and a turtleneck dress in the middle of June. It’s not that cold in Paris.
2. Too tight fit
Kanye West loves revealing looks just as much as he loves Twitter rants. The shorter and tighter the dress, the better…like these Herve Leger-inspired pieces on his Fall 2012 runway. In case you haven’t noticed, Kimmy has been dressing in tighter clothing (like her military strapless number) which she can barely fit in.
3. All Black Everything
Outside of animal print, Kanye West lives for an all-black wardrobe. And Kimmy, who used to love giving a color-rich moment, has been walking around looking like she’s going to a funeral at a nightclub:
All thanks to ‘Ye.
Before leather was even a trend, Kanye West wore it like it was going out of style. And now his partner in crime seems to only own one pair of pants. And guess what material they’re made of? Yep, leather.
5. Label Whoredom
Yes, Kim lived for labels before Kanye West but we all know of his well-documented love of Givenchy, Celine, Helmut Lang, Balmain and Alexander McQueen. Suddenly, those are the only designers she wears.
Above, she’s dressed in a Helmut Lang top and Celine leather sweatpants (eew!). The icing on the cake is Kanye West for Giuseppe Zanotti heels. YUCK!
Rodeo Drive-shopping Kimmy is SUCH a thing of the past that she sold her old clothes on eBay. Tragic.
While I’m happy for their leather and Lamborghini love, I have to admit I miss the California chic Kim Kardashian a bit. But as long as she isn’t in catsuits and floor-length fur coats yet, we can’t really complain, can we?
What do you think of Kim Kardashian‘s latest oufits? Do you believe Kanye West is responsible for the styling?
