Kim Kardashian Style Revolution
Kim Kardashian West
Few style evolutions have been as transformative as Kim Kardashian's. Since the first episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2020, the reality star has progressed from having a closet full of bodycon dresses (#relatable) to becoming a bonafide style icon. When it comes to notable accomplishments in the fashion world, Kardashian has ticked nearly every box. She's now a regular at the Met Gala, fashion's biggest event of the year, and has graced the cover of Vogue numerous times. Not to mention she's developed and launched collaborations with fashion's most respected designers. If you're a day-one fan of her show, you know what Kim Kardashian looked like at the beginning of KUWTK vs. now is drastically different.
Whether she's enjoying a casual night out or hitting a red carpet, it's not unusual to see Kardashian dressed in the latest haute couture look, sometimes before it even hits the runway. The start of her style overhaul can be traced back to when she linked up with Kanye West. In the earliest episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, West was seen overhauling her closet contents. For Kardashian, the wardrobe edit wound up being pretty emotional.
- "When we first started dating, he went through my closet, and he had a stylist come in, and they put everything he thought wasn't cool enough in a pile," she recalled onLive! With Kelly and Michael in October 2015. "I walked in, and it was like a pile to the ceiling of shoes, all the amazing shoes that I loved. I started crying." In time, Kardashian embraced her major style upgrade. "I hadn't even heard of some of these designers before, and it helped me fall in love with fashion," she admitted.
- But it's always fun to take a walk down memory lane. Here's what Kim K looked like at the beginning of KUWTKversus now regarding style, beauty, and overall transformation.
2007 and indicated her style at the time. Kardashian was known for her oversized, statement pieces (which sometimes erred on the side of tacky).
2007 Kardashian's style is a far cry from the clean, minimalist style fans have come to expect from her now in 2020. Kardashian's life is a parade of ultra-chic outfits. In 2020 she is rocking a latex bodysuit as she attends Kanye West's church service during Paris Fashion Week in March.
Kim Kardashian's Makeup revolution
In addition to making changes to her fashion, Kardashian also switched up her makeup over time. During her earliest days in the spotlight, Kardashian wore much bolder makeup, often incorporating colored eyeshadows.
Today, it's a different story. Kimmie is known for her minimalist nude lip and a neutral smokey eye. Overall, she keeps things pretty minimal.
She was at the 2020 Oscars. While her makeup is arguably heavier, it's all semi-matte or matte in neutral tones.
Kardashian's Face Transformation
Even on her show, Kardashian looks unbelievably different from 2007 to the present day.Although some fans swear she's had cosmetic surgery, Kardashian has denied the rumors and insists her face is au natural aside from a few Botox fillers. Most of Kardashian's perceived bone structure changes can probably be chalked up to her aging naturally. Plus, she's a contour queen. It's amazing what a little highlighting and contouring can do, so Kardashian's sculpted cheekbones can probably be attributed to her glam squad.
If Kardashian's transformation through the years comes as a surprise to fans, they're not alone. Even she has cracked jokes about her unlikely rise to fashion icon status. "I'm shocked that I'm winning a fashion award when I'm naked most of the time," she told the crowd at the June 2018 Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards.
There hasn't been a year in over a decade in which Kim Kardashian didn't have an iconic fashion moment. Despite the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe and creating hard times for all in 2020, this year was no different when it came to Kardashian's style statements. Just take one look at these Kim Kardashian Halloween 2020 costume ideas that prove she's got style range like no one else.
Before the coronavirus pandemic left most people self-quarantined for months, Kardashian turned heads during Paris Fashion Week in February when she stepped out in an all-latex outfit. Days later, she sported a second latex look at the Balmain show, which was equally intriguing. The looks blew everyone's minds, with a major question being how she was even able to squeeze into the body-hugging ensembles.
Of course, Kardashian's quest to make the outfits fit was filmed for Keeping Up With The Kardashians and shared in March, where the reality star shared she felt like she "pulled a muscle" while trying to put on the clothing. It was just the start of Kardashian's 2020 fashion looks, with many coming in the form of loungewear as she did her part to slow the spread of COVID-19 by practicing social distancing and staying at home.
