You might have heard about Kanye West's enlightening interview with W, where he admitted that "I Am a God" was inspired by his experience getting dissed by "a major designer" during Paris Fashion Week. But that wasn't the only sartorial truth bomb the rapper dropped -- he also educated us on his impact on his girlfriend's style.
Kim Kardashian has certainly changed her outfit aesthetic since pairing up with West. While we once might have described her clothing as short, tight and bright, Kim now favors looser, draped silhouettes in muted non-colors like grey and black. Still, Kanye insists that he's not fully responsible for Kim's wardrobe changes:
West tells me he hasn’t been masterminding Kardashian's makeover to the degree that everyone assumes. "Nobody can tell my girl what to do," he says. "She just needed to be given some platforms of information to work from." Since virtually everything Kardashian wears is instantly broadcast around the globe, West adds, "one beautiful thing is that as she discovers it, the world discovers it." This includes Kardashian’s inevitable stumbles. "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."
Yet Kim went on the record claiming, "I dress for my man way more than for myself!" back in March, and West famously cleaned out her closet on an episode of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." We're sure the lovestruck rapper is hoping to ease Kim's transition into couture, as Kanye felt firsthand the growing pains that spring up after abandoning an earlier, "safer" look.
Everybody makes mistakes:
