Vogue magazine tells us that in a recent phone interview Kanye West gave credit to wife Kim’s contributions to the changing ideals of beauty in the fashion world. The couple were just named ‘best dressed’ at the 2016 Met Gala.
Changing the shape of fashion
During the interview he turned the attention to his wife, Kim Kardashian West saying, “She is breaking boundaries on so many levels. In fashion . . . designers [weren’t] trying to make clothes for women with shapes. And now they’re all about really embracing and empowering women.”
Indeed Kim Kardashian has long followed and been followed for her own brand of personal style at venues, VIP events and celebrity gatherings. Kanye also implied that Kim’s noticeable curves have helped establish a new appreciation of female shapeliness on the runways.
As the world looks on, they have seen Kim’s style evolve over time and through it all it is obvious that she is comfortable in her own skin. She is not afraid to take a few fashion risks. Especially when you consider Kim’s curvaceousness is so atypical to the ultra-thin model persona that has dominated the shape of fashion. On the contrary, Kim puts forth a sense of pride in her signature looks as she is often seen in the shape-clinging body con dress worn with platform heels or the long sleeved-crop top with a body-hugging pencil skirt.
No matter what Kim is wearing, she celebrates her womanly shape and never hides it away. Her unwavering, personal fashion and makeup-style has not gone unnoticed as she has caught the attention of, as well as been invited into the inner circles of some of fashion’s biggest influencers- including Anna Wintour, André Leon Talley and Valentino Garavani
Just a few days ago at the Met Gala, Kim and husband Kanye West were named “best dressed” couple. They stole the show in Balmain’s ‘Olivier Rousting’s’ designs. Kim wore a gown that absolutely stunned in its metallic vibe complimented by Kanye’s silver jacket, studded with stones and pearls. Apparently his jacket took longer to make than Kim’s gown!
And, as if to prove Kanye’s remarks that Kim has influenced the fashionista industry- a variable multitude of shapes and sizes made up the Balmain group at Monday night’s Met Ball. Alterations in fashion’s body ideal was also evident during this past Fall 2016 Fashion Week which showcased a variety of body types walking the runway.
This is good news for those who have been protesting the negative effect, streams of underfed models is having on young girls. And it seems other designers are joining in on this new celebration of the female shape and no longer obsessing over weight, height or measurements.
While no one is taking full responsibility for this refreshing, steadily-growing trend, Kim’s fearless mission to ‘boldly go where no woman has gone before’ along with fashion’s mutual admiration for her, has certainly counted for something.
