Even when she is dressed in sweats and no makeup, there is no denying the fact that Kim Kardashian always looks great. When it comes time to make an appearance, however, she pretty much takes it to a new level. The businesswoman has been known to make headlines with her outfit choices, and on more than one occasion, fans have hurried to copy her iconic looks.
We can only imagine that a lot of time and effort goes into planning whatever Kardashian wears, whether she herself is deciding on what to pull out of the closet, or if she has someone helping her. Now, Kim Kardashian is “having panic attacks” without Kanye West‘s fashion guidance.
How has Kardashian’s style been affected by West?
In her pre-Kanye days, Kardashian still looked nothing short of amazing. According to StyleCaster, she had a distinct style before she got together with her ex-husband, and years ago, she was known to really make an impact. Her wardrobe was full of bodycon dresses and platform stilettos, and her jewelry always packed a punch as well.
Fast forward to Kardashian’s relationship with West, and things changed significantly. US Weekly can report that West influenced the reality star’s style from the start, even giving her closet a makeover in an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Suddenly, it was all about “more subdued, timeless styles”, a sharp contrast from the bold, trendy clothes that she used to wear. Says Kardashian, “Back in the day, I thought I had the best style. I look back at outfits and I’m, like, mortified.”
Is Kardashian having ‘panic attacks’ without West’s fashion guidance?
Now that they are no longer together, Kardashian has to get used to the fact that the fashion-conscious West won’t be around to give his input. So, is she really having panic attacks without his help? According to Page Six, she is.
The rapper was actually responsible for many of his former wife’s looks such as the vintage Alexander McQueen dress she wore in 2020, and now, she is left figuring out things for herself. Says the SKIMS founder, “I got to a point where I would just ask him for advice for everything, down to what I wear. Even now I’m having like panic attacks, like, ‘What do I wear?”
West really knew what he was doing when it came to his fashion advice. Not only was he a stylist for Kardashian, but he has also given fashion advice to other exes, such as Julia Fox, Selita Ebanks, and even Amber Rose.
West and Kardashian’s long relationship
Many fans may have thought that the power couple would be together forever, however, things came to an end in 2021 after eight years. Although US Weekly can report that they first met back in 2003, it wasn’t until 2012 that they were romantically linked. Soon after going public with their relationship, they announced that they were expecting their first child, and fans were thrilled.
It was in October 2013 that West asked Kardashian to be his wife during an over-the-top proposal at AT&T Park with a 50-piece orchestra, a huge diamond ring, and a screen reading “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” The pair became husband and wife in 2014 in Florence, Italy, along with their daughter, North West, and during the marriage, they went on to welcome three more children.
They hit a few rough patches, but it seemed that they were going strong, especially when West revealed that “Anytime I was around her or I saw her, it was a magnetic attraction to this force of energy.” during Kardashian’s E! True Hollywood Story special. Despite renewing their vows shortly after, the couple couldn’t make it work, and their relationship came to an end in 2021.
