I Guess Kanye Is in Control of Kim’s Fashion Choices Now

We’ve talked about Kim Kardashian‘s fashion choices a few times this week, remember? Specifically, we talked about how she seemed to be developing a trend of wearing memorable dresses that other celebrities wore before her. First there was her Gwyneth Paltrow dress, and then she stepped out in Cannes wearing the same dress that had been worn before by Zoe Saldana, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Katy Perry (not at the same time, of course, but if someone could draw that picture, that would be awesome). But now there’s some news that reveals that Kanye is really the one to blame for the bad fashion. Natch.

From the Daily News:

Rapper-turned-fashion-designer Kanye West has been giving Kim Kardashian some fashion advice.

“Kanye has been having chats with Kim about her style. He thinks she should be more like him, edgy with her choices. He keeps saying she should evolve as a fashion icon,” quoted a source as saying.

Kim ran a clothing boutique with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian as well as her mother Kris Jenner before finding fame. She has also created a successful apparel line named Kardashian Kollection.

However, West thinks Kim needs to be more adventurous with the image.

“Kanye says she plays it safe too much so has been trying to pick outfits for her to wear and encourage her to be more daring,” the source said.

And here’s a similar story all about how Kanye wants Kim to look like Kate Middleton:

Rapper-turned-fashion designer Kanye West prefers his rumoured girlfriend Kim Kardashian to sport a natural look a la Duchess of Cambridge Catherine Middleton. The rapper has been advising his reality TV star girlfriend’s style team on how he wants her to look, with Middleton as a reference point.”Kanye does like to get involved with Kim’s look. He actually has a lot of input, he has amazing style so we take his opinions to heart and I say, ‘Okay, I’ll try it’,” quoted Kardashian’s stylist Rob Scheppy as saying.

“Catherine Middleton has influenced her look while in London. Catherine’s amazing. We watched her wedding and we thought it was beautiful,” he said.

West, who has his own women’s fashion line DW Kanye West, is not afraid to speak his mind, and dislikes it if Kardashian wears too much make-up.

“Kanye’s not afraid to say what he likes. He definitely likes the less-is-more look. Everyone wants to look good for their man, so Kim will listen and say, ‘Okay. I’ll go with what my boyfriend says’,” Scheppy added.

Ok, first off, no, everyone does not want to look good for their man. Sometimes people want to be comfortable, and sometimes people want to look how they want to look. I get wanting to get dressed up every now and again, but if your significant other would think less of you because of your makeup or your clothes, then maybe you should find a different significant other. Also, Kim’s been modeling and “designing clothes” for quite a while, and she’s basically famous because people thinks she looks good, so I think she’s got this whole area covered.

Besides, is anyone actually going to take Kanye seriously when it comes to fashion? Did everyone forget what his actual designs look like?

  • Amen to everything you said. And how long before Kris, the mom from hell, puts a horse head in Kanye’s bed (fake horse head, ok, Peta) for stepping on her toes?

  • My first thought when I read this was “ABUSIVE.” *sits on soapbox* One sign of an abusive sig. other is telling someone how to dress/look. That isn’t up to him. If she wants to put on a lot of make up, that’s her business. It’s her face! And if she doesn’t want to dress “edgier” than she shouldn’t have to! The sad thing is, as Kourtney said once, Kim is in love with being in love, and she’ll do whatever just to keep him around. Esp. since after the divorce ppl look at her differently, so she’ll want whatever that is to work out.

    I’m not a Kardashian fan, but Kanye is an asshole and she could do better. He shouldn’t try to take control of her look. Ugh.

  • She likes to use you as her escort or pal for publicity, make a great big scene when you least expect it, withdraw in pretend shock and terror.. call ever news spreading souce to blame the enthralled victims before she ditches them semi enraged with anger by her backstabbing and humiliated by a huge loss of money buying and giving her expensive crap.. and then they are left trying to snuff out the lies and do damage control on her accusations now and thru the next reality tv season, heavily edited in her and to the family’s favor.. while she sells your stuff for a profit to the consignment shops.. is alone and suffering looking for a new love

  • Kanya said “Edgy” not dress like other celebs. Its funny now Kanya tell Kim he like to see her dress more edgy all of a sudden its all in the news. So what ever goes wrong with Kim its Kanya fault. I am sure he told her the things thats coming out in the news he said to her in private. But Kanya open the door for this crap and from now on this is how the Kardashians are playing him. So he can get use to it.
