Poor old Kim K found herself on the sharp end of stylists’ tongues as she stepped out in New York City with beau, Kanye West.
The offending items? A pair of cream Givenchy boots ($1,695) teamed with a black wrap dress that met them at the knee.
This fashion faux pas may not be entirely her fault though, depending on what way you look at it. Kanye, renowned, in some circles, for his own style and in yo’ face attitude has made no secret of the fact that he’s given Kimmy’s wardrobe a complete overhaul. Doing away with her ‘trashy’, ‘ghetto’ clothing and shoes and replacing them with pieces more to his
taste and in line with the image he thinks his new girlfriend should portray. He has drafted in his personal stylist to guide her transformation.
In a lyrical move that seems to fly in the face of this Kimmy ‘reinvention’, his upcoming song, Clique, features the words ‘My girl a superstar all from a home movie ’. That’s a bit of a puzzler, right? Of course he’s referring to Kim’s sex tape with Ray J that subsequently launched her and the majority of her family’s fame into the stratosphere but she’s always tried to distance herself from that tape.
Yes, style is subjective and Kim is obviously happy to go along with this wardrobe revamp as she dons her new apparel but will it last if this rebranding exercise affects her business? Clearly neither Boyfriend nor his stylist have any taste when it comes to women’s fashion, so she may find herself on the wrong side of many a Best Dressed List before long. It would appear, from the outside that Kanye is treating Kim like just another possession, to be styled as he sees fit.
Personally, I would have stood bodily blocking the wardrobe door from him and his refuse bags, ‘No, Imma let you finish, Kanye, but you’re the most controlling douche of all time… of ALL time’
This got me to wondering, would you feel like a living doll if your partner were to take control of what you wear? Or do you think it’d be nice to hand over the responsibility for your wardrobe decisions to your significant other?
Jesus,can you even imagine what you’d be wearing?
