Kim Kardashian‘s life has changed in incredible ways over the past couple of years. She got married, got divorced, hooked up with Kanye West, and last but not least, made a baby with her outspoken baby daddy. But it’s not just those big “life” things that have changed; her life has also transformed style-wise.
There was much ado about Kanye West’s influence on Kim Kardashian. When this was brought up to Kanye, he said, “She just needed to be given some platforms of information to work from. One beautiful thing is that as she discovers it, the world discovers it.” And his influence seems to still be going strong, with Kim Kardashian sitting front and center at Paris Fashion Week and hanging out with fashion A-listers like Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci, Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld, and Vogue‘s Andre Leon Tally.
In fact, her changes are so notable and substantial that the Los Angeles Times dedicated a whole piece to those big changes, saying, “The Kardashian we’ve grown accustomed to lately has definitely changed up her sartorial choices, makeup decisions and hair hues while she continues to date rapper West.”
What are those changes? Here are 8 biggies as noted in the LA Times piece. Which one do you think is the most notable?
Colorful to Muted 1 of 8
Kim Kardashian once embraced color — and LOTS of it (check out the image to the left — green, orange, and purple all worn together). Now she is seen mostly in monotone hues, from all black to all white to all beige, like the image on the right.
The White Swimsuit 2 of 8
Kim once went with a bevy of different colors with her swimwear. But now she is all about the white. Recently, she tweeted out a REALLY sexy pic of herself wearing a revealing white swimsuit (we aren't showing it here, but to see it just Google "Kim Kardashian and swimsuit," and you'll get thousands of links).
On the right is a far tamer white swimsuit, which is a very different look than before.
The Lips 3 of 8
Kim generally would go for a nude or very light lip. But now she is experimenting with color, like the VERY dark hue she wore in Paris recently.
Animal Prints Go Bye Bye 4 of 8
Kim once had a passion for animal print. But have we seen her sporting anything cheetah, leopard, or other cats lately? No, no we have not.
Gold 5 of 8
Kim Kardsahian is LOVING the gold recently, from earrings and rings to this gold tassel necklace that we spotted on her — not once, but twice!
From Off the Rack to Couture 6 of 8
She once bought her gowns off the rack. But now, it's all about couture, baby!
From Tabloids to Fashion Mags 7 of 8
Kim Kardashian used to be just fodder for supermarket tabloids, but now she is high fashion! Here is Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld photographing a very pregnant Kim K!
The Hair 8 of 8
This is one of the most drastic changes she has made, from dark brown to blond!
