Season one of Keeping Up With the Kardashians aired all the way back in 2007. Kardashian often wore bodycon dresses and other black dresses that would highlight all of her best features. It is no secret that the reality television star enjoys wearing the color black. Speaking of black, during this time, the BlackBerry was Kardashian’s unofficial accessory to every outfit.
In 2011 Kardashian decided to experiment with her hair and tried out a more red look. As time went on, Kardashian began to sport more and more athletic wear. This reflected both her fitness journey and priorities. Over the years Kardashian has had some iconic fashion moments. For example, fans and viewers can fondly recall the stunning photo from her maternity shoot that she shared on her Instagram account. However, some of the star’s fashion moments have also been less than ideal. See what Keeping Up With the Kardashians fans have to say about Kardashian’s looks over the years.

Why do some fans think her looks are more controversial than stylish?
