Relax: Kanye West Has Already Styled Kim Kardashian For His Show This Week
There’s no doubt that Kanye West is involved in wife Kim Kardashian West’s fashion choices (hello, he made her cry when overhauling her closet). Thanks to a behind-the-scenes peek at his Fashion Week prep, we now have confirmation that it goes beyond a simple suggestion or outfit tweak. Nope, hubby straight-up styles her.
The look he shared on Twitter yesterday looks more luxe than Yeezy seasons one and two, with intricate beading galore and a stocking-legging hybrid that seems to be embroidered with hundreds of pearls. Compared with earlier collections, this should appeal to a different audience (particularly those who want something more clothes-like than sports bras and spandex), though with all the embellishment, we are not feeling positive about the retail prices they’ll earn.
Kanye’s Thursday show should be different than anything New York Fashion Week has seen before. For starters, it’s at Madison Square Garden, a venue that was “always a dream” to Kanye. Tickets were sold through Ticketmaster and, contrary to a Kanye tweet, they’re still available for purchase (got a spare $135 to spend?).
One thing that definitely won’t have changed from previous showings to this one: The rabid attention Mrs. West will be getting. While this seems to be the first time Kanye has previewed his wife’s look with the world, a look back at her past outfits makes it obvious that they weren’t ensembles she picked day-of from her own closet. Both looks so mirrored what the Vanessa Beecroft-arranged models were wearing that Kim could’ve popped up from her seat and joined the lineup.

Get excited too because this might be the last season we get a fresh Kim look: Kanye has different plans for next season.
