There was massive blowback from reality TV fans when Kanye West came in and overhauled girlfriend Kim Kardashian’s closet on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but that was just the beginning of Kim’s fashion transformation. Since Kim and Kanye got together, Kim has started following his lead into the land of high-end European designers, like Givenchy and Dries Van Noten. Let’s all admit it: girlfriend looks good!
To some haters, it looks like Kanye is trying to puppetmaster his lady love into some sort of couture Barbie. In a recent W Magazine interview, Kanye finally set the record straight.
“Nobody can tell my girl what to do,” he said, when asked if he was the driving force behind Kim’s ever-changing look. “She just needed to be given some platforms of information to work from.”
Kanye was happy to provide Kim these platforms, but it’s her willingness to run with them that makes him feel the love.
“One beautiful thing is that as she discovers it, the world discovers it,” Kanye said. “For her to take that risk in front of the world, it just shows you how much she loves me. And how much she actually loves the opportunity to learn. You got, like, a million companies saying, ‘This is impacting your brand! This is impacting your fans! And blah blah blah.’ But she still sees this light of beauty."
OK, Kanye, we're still not on board with those peplum pants, but we're totally on board with this softer, sweeter side of you! Keep it coming, Yeezy!
