(ok, not literally, but still) So, after days of going around the matter and thinking “Kimye” is not really what I want to see right now. But I finally jumped in. And I’m glad I did.
There’s a special appearance in one of the latest episodes of Keeping up with the Kardashians in which Kanye West, as Kim’s boyfriend, cleans up her closet. With a little help from his stylist. Everything I knew about Kanye West’s style and sense of fashion is now pretty much in the same pile with Kim’s old clothes, ready to be tossed away. Why? (watch the video after the jump and let’s talk about it!)
… because (one) Kim has an atrocious taste when it comes to clothes. Her outfits are all built / chosen around her curves, thus keeping her “fame” intact. There’s hardly any kind of style whatsoever ruling Kim’s look. She seems to focus mainly on what’s trendy today and good to throw tomorrow. Because, duh! she can afford that.
Kanye West, who, we all know, dreams of fashion recognition, although making some of the most unwearable shoes ever, took the difficult task of re – vamping Kim Kardashian’s style upon his shoulders. And, although some may argue that it’s too possessive (like some Jezebel readers) and that it could erase her personality (what? personality?), I think it’s a bold and laudable initiative! And I also think Kim will only approve of it and play along as far as it’s increasing her audience numbers. Don’t you?
