Last week, Kanye West took to Twitter to rant about his many fashion ‘hates’– but he noticeably left out something he apparently has a major problem with, or at least when worn by the people closest to him: Color. One of Kanye West’s personal assistants once informed us that Kanye has banned his posse of employees from wearing any colors other than white, black, and gray. And while Kim Kardashian has certainly never nixed neutral combos in the past, she’s also hasn’t been one to shy away from brights. We couldn’t help but notice that the fairer half of Kimye seems to be shrinking away from violet lately… and pretty much every other color out there. In fact, K- (yes, that’s ‘Dash’) looks to have almost entirely banished rainbow hues from her vast wardrobe since hitching up with Yeezy in March.
Love or hate her, we have to admit that Kim has been looking really good lately– maybe save for that weirdly inappropriate stripperesque mini and heels she donned to catch a Lakers Game yesterday. So far, dating Mr. West has done only good things for her fash cred: She may have been shunned from the Met Ball, but she did attend that Chanel dinner, and now she’s getting her very own spread in L’Uomo Vogue. Plus, switching styles for a man certainly isn’t unheard of– See Leelee Sobieski and basically anyone who’s ever hooked up with Marilyn Manson. So is Kanye just trying to klass up his latest katch? Is he keeping Kimmy kaptive from the rest of the kolors? Or is keeping up with Kanye kausing Kim to sacrifice her style?
