Kim Kardashian's Style Evolution

Since Keeping Up With the Kardashians became a solid staple in our guilty pleasure viewing diet, we've seen Kim Kardashian's style do a complete U-Turn. 

Once it was all rhinestones, shiny materials and big platform shoes but now she opts for a much sleeker look. Her sartorial turnaround has a lot to do with her husband Kanye West, who Kim credits with overhauling her look and who she tasked with throwing out nearly her entire wardrobe, when they began dating in 2012.

Recently, in an interview with Love magazine, Kim said: “I’d never spent time in London or Paris or seen what style was like around the world, so he wanted to bring in stylists to update my look. And they brought in things like snakeskin that I’d never seen before.”

While some question her status as a fashion icon, it's become hard to ignore the fact that this woman is constantly snapped wearing some of the chicest looks by some of the hottest designers. Not to mention that she's a regular on the front row during fashion week. 

Although she still likes to reveal a touch of cleavage and prefers a figure hugging cut, she's more likely to be seen Maison Margiela, Balmain, or even Alexander Wang or McQueen.

From appearing on the cover of Vogue with Kanye to posing in this month's Love magazine, it's clear that Kim Kardashian West has made her impact on the fashion industry and it looks like she's here to stay. 

Take a look at her style evolution in the gallery below
