This Is Kim Kardashian’s Best Stylist, According To The Reality Star

Kim Kardashian’s fashion choices are famous all around the world. She has been known for donning very bold outfits. And with almost 150 million followers on Instagram, she also no doubt has a hand in influencing trends over the past several years. However, behind Kardashian’s sartorial success is someone who has really changed her life and style for the better.

In 2018, Kardashian was given the Influencer Award by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). It was a special moment for the reality starlet as she had loved fashion for a long time, though it took her a while to be acknowledged by the fashion industry as an icon. She shared in her acceptance speech that even some people close to her did not believe in her efforts to showcase her fashion skills.

“It was maybe seven years ago when I had a publicist and she asked, what where my goals, what were my dreams, and I said I just want to be on the cover of a fashion magazine,” Kardashian shared. “She said to me, ‘Let’s get some realistic goals, because that will never happen.”

Kardashian eventually accomplished her dream in 2014 when she and husband Kanye West were on the cover of Vogue together. She also landed a solo cover sometime later. Of course, Kardashian shared that she made sure to send that publicist “an autographed copy” of her first Vogue cover.

Kim Kardashian laughs at her old fashion choices

When Kardashian first rose to fame in the 2000s, her style was quite different than it is now. She used to wear a lot of belts, denim jeans, and big jewelry pieces — things she is embarrassed about now. Kardashian admits that she cringes when looking back at the outfits she used to wear, though she tries to be understanding of her old self.

In her cover story for Vogue Arabia, Kardashian shared: “I look back and have to laugh; it was so much fun. It was who I was, what I could afford, and what I knew at the time.”

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

Kardashian revealed in her Vogue Arabia story that West has been instrumental in changing up her style.

West himself is a known face in fashion. He got his start in the music industry, but these days, he is mostly making money from his fashion line: Yeezy. He debuted his line at New York Fashion Week in 2015, though West has since stopped putting on runway shows.

Instead, for a while, he opted to promote his clothes by having Kardashian and other famous faces wear his brand on the streets of Southern California. These days, his company is also known for selling in-demand apparels and shoes at high prices.

In any case, Kardashian and West married in 2014, and it seems having him around has been great for her image. 

She told him in Vogue Arabia: “When I met you, you gave me the biggest closet makeover. I didn’t understand at the time why you wanted to get rid of pretty much everything I owned, but I pretended like I did. You were showing me all of these different designers that I had never heard of before. Now, I totally get it. Now I’m very confident in what I wear. You’re been my best stylist.”

It was not just West who helped her, though. Kardashian also made sure to give shout-outs to other influential people in fashion such as Zac Posen and Rachel Roy.
