Kim Kardashian West ‘learned’ to love curves
The ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star admits it can be hard realising some runway designs don’t suit her body shape but is glad the fashion world is embracing curves.
She shared: “My body type is not your typical model body type. It’s exciting that I feel that designers are seeing different body shapes and styles and willing to take that risk.
“So many things look amazing on my sister Kendall [Jenner], we have completely different bodies and you know something could look amazing on the runway and then just not fit my personal body type. So I think that’s been a lesson that I’ve had to learn – sometimes the hard way – that sometimes things don’t always work out.”
And the 34-year-old television personality credits her husband Kanye West for “changing everything” about the way she looked at fashion.
She gushed to CNN Style: “Back in the day, I thought I had the best style. I look back at outfits and I’m mortified. I remember one day, Kanye brought me Carine Roitfeld’s book and was like, ‘You should be studying this book, this is the fashion bible.’
“I was like, ‘Who’s Carine?’ I knew nothing, and he said, ‘Watch, one day she’s going to style you.'”
