Kanye West Told Kim Kardashian His Career Was Over When He Stopped Doing Her Hair
“I got to a point where I was asking him for advice on everything, until I was wearing. Even now, I have panic attacks like, what am I wearing?”
Kim has openly spoken about how Kanye, a renowned fashion designer, would go to great lengths to choose his own outfits throughout their marriage.
In fact, her Kim style started even before they officially got married. A few months after they met in 2012, Kanye literally reworked Kim’s entire closet after apparently telling her she had “the worst style.”
And for the next nine years, Kanye would go out of his way to make sure Kim’s outfits were to his liking – including once flying to Paris for just 24 hours, specifically to style her hair after seeing pictures paparazzi of her in clothes he didn’t like.
However, things changed soon after Kim filed for divorce from Kanye in February 2021. Although he initially continued to style her for certain events, Kim eventually had to start choosing her own outfits without the approval of Ye.
And in the latest episode of his family’s reality show The Kardashianswhich aired on Hulu last night, Kim candidly explains how she struggled to piece together her own look without Kanye’s input.
The episode was filmed in early November, which, as Kim herself says, took place nearly ten months after she originally filed for divorce.
Speaking with her sister Kourtney Kardashian, Kim reveals she became so dependent on Kanye’s opinion that she ended up asking him for advice on “everything”.
“I got to a point where I was asking him for advice on everything, until I was wearing,” she said.
“Even now I have panic attacks like, what am I wearing?” she continued.
Kim then revealed that even though Kanye helped her Saturday Night Live Look last October, he didn’t style her for the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) magazine’s Innovator Awards on Nov. 2 — which, as a result, she struggled to prepare for.
“In New York – I will say – he did my hair for SNL,” Kim admits. “Then for the Wall Street Journal magazine, I won the Innovator Award for Skims. And I thought to myself, ‘How can I wear something that hasn’t been checked beforehand? Like, it was like psychologically [hard].”
At the renowned event, which took place at MOMA, Kim wore a brown leather dress from her Skims x Fendi collection, paired with matching gloves and snakeskin-print shoes. Reflecting on the process of choosing her outfit herself, Kim confesses to Kourtney that she was “so nervous.”
But although Kim proudly flaunted her look online the day after the awards show, she has now revealed that Kanye – who clearly didn’t approve – called her straight out with harsh words after seeing what she restored.
“Oh, and then he called me afterwards. He told me my career was over. And then he showed me a picture of Marge Simpson wearing something similar,” she told Kourtney.
Later in the episode, Kim opens up more about her struggle to get away from Kanye’s influence, as she tries to put together some outfits for various upcoming events.
“I think fashion has always been something that I’ve always been really into, but I’ve never been the designer,” she says in a confessional.
“I definitely see what I like but I’ve never really been the visionary. Kanye would come in and say, ‘You should do your hair like this. You should make up like this. It’s her love language, it’s the clothes,” she says.
“And so, I always trusted him,” Kim continues. “But it’s not just about clothes. It was like the last thing we really had in common.
Kim goes on to clarify that she is now trying to decipher what exactly her one sense of style is. “I was always ‘The Kardashians’ with my sisters, then I was ‘Kimye’. Like, who is Kim K? That’s the jump. How do you get there without Kanye? she says.
“When I filed for divorce, it had been about 10 months now. And I’m finally dating [and] be like, I can do it,” She adds.
Well, since filming the episode in November, it seems Kim has gained confidence and her style has taken a noticeable turn.
After spending months dressing head-to-toe in all-black Balenciaga cuts, Kim has recently ventured into her more classic glam looks, opting for floor-length dresses instead of leather trench coats, shades and waders.
To The Kardashian premiere last month, for example, Kim stepped away from the outfits she had recently become synonymous with to wear a silver dress by Thierry Mugler.
Weeks later, at the 2022 White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, Kim – who made her red carpet debut with boyfriend Pete Davidson – wore a sparkling dress, paired only with metal studs. diamond and a single ring.
And at the 2022 Met Gala, which took place earlier this month, Kim channeled a bit of old-school Hollywood glamor by wearing Marilyn Monroe’s famous “Happy Birthday President” dress on the iconic carpet.
You can watch the latest episode of The Kardashians now on Hulu or Disney+ internationally. The next episode will be released on May 18.
