This was truly the year of Kim Kardashian West. The television star and entrepreneur got married, was on the cover of Vogue, and her daughter North turned one. What more could a girl want? A great wardrobe and bags for a start (at least that’s what we would ask for), and West certainly did not disappoint on the style front. Alongside her fashion-conscious husband Kanye West, the newlywed slipped into body-con ensembles from new designers including A.W.A.K.E. by Natalia Alaverdian and Yulia Kondranina, as well as runway favorites like Balmain and Givenchy. Her penchant for sculptural silhouettes, sky-high strappy heels, and visor-like shades gave West the edge even in the most feminine looks. And although she clearly favors a monochromatic palette, here’s hoping that next year we see her experiment with a dash more color in her wardrobe.
If there’s one thing we know about Kim Kardashian (West!), it’s that she loves her some Kanye. She loves him so much that she let him throw away a bunch of clothes in her closet. And to let someone else take over your wardrobe, folks, that takes a lot of trust. Like hubby level trust. As far as we’re concerned, Kim and Kanye have achieved next-level sartorial oneness. And this, Kim’s 34th birthday, is the perfect time to celebrate it. So, in honor of the newly-minted Mrs. Kardashian West, eight looks that are so Kanye.
The E! star has had a whirlwind year with a lavish Florence wedding to Kanye West, baby North‘s first birthday and a wildly popular new app. And to help celebrate Kim celebrate her most successful year yet, we’re looking back at the bombshell’s best red carpet looks.
Last month, Kim stepped out in NYC a drool-worth monochromatic dress with a black geometric bodice. Rewind to 2010, when the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star wore a glamorous silk chiffon Marchesa gown with a gold embroidered neckline. Whew, the 34-year-old’s never looked more goddess-like!
