kim-kardashian-1 So I have a few guilty pleasures. The usual cliches bla bla bla bla, aaaand watching Keeping up with the Kardashians.


You can pretend I just didn’t say that, in case we’re not on the same page.

In the name of research (or so I keep telling myself) I’ve been watching the show pretty often lately, trying to grasp Kim’s recent makeover. And if, after all it’s all courtesy of Kanye. kim-kardashian-great-new-style Ever since the Kimye thing happened, she looks stunning and has transitioned from the generic rich socialite to this sophisticated and incredibly sexy woman, to the point where even the Anna Wintour is considering putting her on the cover of Vogue. After all, Carine Roitfeld took a chance on Kimmie when she put her on the cover of CR Fashion Book. ‘‘She’s controversial, but so was Marilyn Monroe and I always like controversial people” Carine told Time out London, praising her talent (beauty), saying she was the easiest model to work with, and acknowledging that has style has changed a lot over the years.  article-2411556-1B9FD458000005DC-219_634x424 Have a lookkimk-style-before-kanye Today: kim-kardashian-new-cool-style Kim’s old style. 

Back in the day, the super short painted-on party dresses were a must for Kim Kardashian style, alongside her long long very long luscious hair, long long very long fake lashes, stripper heels, tons of makeup etc etc etc.

Later on in her ”career”, as she watched, listened and learned, she went for slightly more polished (too polished and groomed if you ask me) looks, maintaining her glamorous pussy-cat persona. kim-kardashian-before-kanye I’ve never been a fan of Kim’s style prior to this makeover, for the aforementioned reasons. I loved her (actually all of their) clothes. Not how she wore them, though. I just thought she took it all soooo serious, all business and no fun, too much, too polished and dolled up all the time. Not to mention boring, predictable and borderline high class call-girl at times. kim-kardashian-old-style She did nail it quite a few times, and she always looked beautiful, I’ll give her that, but personally I never thought (except for her hair and makeup) that she stood for a certain style or dressed impeccably to a certain look. It was always so generic, seen on any woman with tons of money, no imagination, nothing wrong, but nothing right either. Just plain bleah, with the occasional massive fashion miss. Or hit.

Huge brands, uber expensive clothes, shoes, bags and bling, and she always was wearing some skin-tight mini dress, skinny jeans/trousers, silky shirts, fur vests, leather jackets, tons of jewelry… and the always present stripper heels. Horrendous. kim-kardashian-old-look Kim’s new style.

Fast forward a few years, bring Kanye West into the picture, and what do you say, what do you know? kims-new-look Kim Kardashian looks chic, incredibly hot, sophisticated and effortless, keeping that glamorous twist to her outfits, but stripping off all that was wrong and really unnecessary to any woman’s style (platform high heels, long hair/hair extensions, too much makeup, too polished, matronly looks, too groomed hair etc.). kim-kardashian-new-style Once Kimye was ‘born’… ah… the world has changed. They stated dressing alike and soon became the IT couple of today. So is he styling her? No. But I think he had a massive role in her makeover, so kudos to him for that.

I remember a short clip from the show, when she’s trying on this long glamorous plunging-neck dress for some red carpet event, and she’s asking the stylist to make it tighter around the breasts, so that she can wear a bra to push the girls up and flaunt them. Surprise, surprise. NOT. And Kanye’s there, telling her, no, leave it like that, flowing, floating and very 70’s retro glamorous, leaving the eye to guess the curves and the fabric to fall naturally abound the body. DING!

kimk-new-style It’s all in the details I swear, cause even before she went blonde, the makeover started with cutting her hair shorter, subtle highlights in it, side long bang, and ladies, drumrolls and applause for this one: replacing the platform heels with classic pumps. Wow. If you ask me, that made all the difference. Just look the photos before and after. It’s all about the shoes, hair and makeup.

Kim Kardashian transitional style:  kim-kardashian-transitionin kim-kardashian-style From then on… things have changed so amazingly and I found myself adoring her new looks.

Loved her as a blonde in those pastel soft cream colors, and to-die-for coats. Seriously? She. Has. The. Best. Coats. Ever. kim-kardashian-camel-coat kim-kardashian-coat-look kim-kardashian-look-2013 kim-kardashian-sophisticated-look kim-kardashian-style-fashion-makeup-2013 Kim Kardashian and Kanye West dine at Hakkasan with Tyga and Black Chyna Her new look meant new makeup, think golden Goddess as she herself put it. Dusted bronzed eye-shadow carelessly applied, thick eyebrows, un-groomed hair, contoured face. blonde-hair-kim-kardashian kim-kardashian-blonde Her hems got longer (over the knees), she started covering up more, and whatever she left for sight was through sheer fabric (boobs alert) or her midriff in those amazing skin tight pencil dresses and matchy (or not) cropped tops. And sometimes she’s just too perfect with those oversized coats on. kim-kardashian kim-kardashian-2013-style kim-kardashian-blonde-and-new-style kim-kardashian-coat-style-2014 kim-kardashian-goes-back -to=natural-color kim-kardashian-going-back-to-brown-hair ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? kim-kardashian-pencil-skirt-bare-midriff kim-kardashian-pencil-skirt-cropped-top kim-kardashian-style-2013 kim-kardashian-style-makeover kim-kardashian-style-makeovver kim-kardashian-white-lace-dress Her jeans are no longer waaaay too long. She’s doing the careless effortless rock’ish glam style in ripped jeans, old T-shirt and leather jacket. And messy hair. Gotta love it!

Yeah. Kim’s all grown up now into this confident sexy sophisticated woman, who still flaunts her curves and shows some skin, yet does it tastefully. She’s still an all around glamorous girl, and she’ll always be. And I love that. kim-kardashian-all-white-style-2014 kim-kardashian-casual-2014 kim-kardashian-casual-look kim-kardashian-edgy-glam-look kim-kardashian-rocker-look-2014 For me Kim’s makeover rules and her new style is a definite YES. How about you?

Happy Valentine’s Day lovelies & have a great weekend!!! xoxo

    @Leona… Kim has a curvy body. Unless she’s wearing a potato sack her “boobs and ass” are going to be seen. She wears flattering clothes for her body. Just because she’s not a skinny Barbie like most celebs and models doesn’t mean she can’t flaunt what she’s got. I really like her new style and yes she wears a lot of crop tops and pencil skirts, but that works for her, it’s her “uniform”, it’s what makes her feel comfortable and she always keeps it interesting. So I don’t think any one should knock her for it.

    I am 64 years young. I have been watching your show on and off and marathans for, is it 9 years already?
    I am also a grandma. “Kim. Get off the train”. Are you a real woman or a shell of a human being. ? I have faith. Enjoy your husband and your baby. It’s time to get off the train if you want to really be a mom and a good wife. Or let’s wait for your 3rd divorce! Get real or are you empty as most people think? A shell, like a barbie? You are a mom now. Get over yourself. Said with good intentions to you and your family. Oh. And by the way I am tired of looking at your boobs and ass every time I want to check entertainment. Cover yourself for once. Must you paint your clothes on. Nothing Fit’s you right.

    I think she’s made major improvements, that’s for sure! She needs to lay off the crop tops…over this look on her! But she’s come a long way.

    it’s always going to be tough for kim. there will always be criticism because of her shape. no matter how polished, streamlined, sophisticated the look, she’s never going to look like a runway model or even like most socialites out there. while i love some of the items she wears, I feel like there’s still something missing. maybe i’m looking for a little tweek in the styling or proportions. while a stark improvement from her past style, she has a little way to go. she’s almost there.

    I think she’s beautiful. You are definitely right about the coats – fabulous! I’m not all that convinced about her style in general though. I think what bugs me most is that I just don’t get her appeal. I certainly have my guilty pleasure shows (that part I understand) but her and the family, not my thing. (great post though!)

  7. Mammu says:

    I really need to start watching Keeping Up with Kardashians but I don’t know where I can find it :( As for Kim I think she is absolutely gorgeous but in my eyes she always dresses herself in unflattering ways, then and now…. HAppy Valentine’s Day girl and may you have a lovely day whatever your doing ^_^
