Why Kim Kardashian Laughs At One Particular Regret From Her Past
Kim Kardashian has definitely lived a very colorful life. She first gained fame as a reality show personality, but these days the 38-year-old star is also the owner of a beauty and fashion empire. It goes without saying that Kardashian — like everyone else — has some high moments as well as low moments in her life and career. However, instead of crying over those regrets from her past, there is one that she has learned to just laugh at.
Kim Kardashian laughs at her old fashion choices
Kardashian’s style has changed a lot over the years. Her red carpet looks in the 2000s included a lot of belts, denim jeans, and big jewelry pieces. However, these days, she typically opts for eye-catching dresses, and she also sticks to just one or two colors per outfit.
In her new cover story for Vogue Arabia, Kardashian shared that she does cringe at those outfits in the early days of her career, but she tries to make light of them.
“I love my worst moments now,” she said. “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.”
Kim Kardashian thinks Kanye West has been her ‘best stylist’
Kardashian went through a style makeover when she began dating Kanye West. The rapper is quite interested in fashion. West got his start in the music industry, but it seems that much of his money comes from his venture into fashion. He is well-known for being the owner of the Yeezy brand, which sells apparels and shoes at very high prices.
According to Kardashian, having West in her life has been eye-opening for her personal style. She told him — he interviewed her — in her Vogue Arabia cover story: “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.”
Kardashian listened to West’s coaching as well as got help from other influential people in fashion, such as Zac Posen, Karl Lagerfeld, and Rachel Roy. These days, Kardashian shared, she has a lot more confidence in her style than she did back then.
“You have been my best stylist,” Kardashian told her husband.
Today Kim Kardashian is acknowledged as a game-changer in fashion
There is no doubt that Kardashian has a lot of influence in the world of fashion. After all, she has over 147 million followers on Instagram and her fashion choices are discussed by people all around the world.
In 2018, Kardashian was even awarded the Influencer Award by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). Kardashian gave a heartwarming acceptance speech that showed how much she had to overcome to be recognized as a fashion icon.
“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.”
Of course, Kardashian had the last laugh. When she landed her first Vogue cover in 2014 with West, Kardashian made her to sent the said-publicist “an autographed copy” of the issue. It also did not take long before Kardashian got herself a solo Vogue cover.
“It’s really a trip to me that I’m here getting an award for fashion, when it’s something I’ve always loved,” Kardashian said.
