“All hail the queen!” That’s what I’m usually thinking whenever I see the ubiquitous Kim Kardashian.
With over 98 million followers on instagram, Kim Kardashian is hands down the most popular of the Kardashian Klan. Now in its 13th season Keeping up with the Kardashians has become a global phenomenon all centered around the gorgeous Kim and her wacky family. In recent years, however, the attraction that keeps me watching has not been e the family but to anticipate what Kim might be wearing in the next scene. We watched Kim go from tight Herve Leger bandage dresses and sky high Louboutins to only wearing the most expensive haute couture from french houses such as Givenchy and Balmain, the latter in which Kim has become best friends with the designer. Most would argue this is thanks, in large parts, to her husband Kanye West, who has been a darling to the fashion industry ever since he collaborated with french house, Louis Vuitton, to design limited edition sneakers back in 2009.
A once shunned figure in the fashion industry, it is now expected to find Kim front row at some of the most acclaimed fashion shows, usually cheering on little sister Kendall Jenner. What a life those Kardashians/Jenners live right? I can admit my love of Kim Kardashian has been a guilty pleasure of mine. Anytime she steps out she never ceases to amaze me with her fashion choices. As a fashion lover, one could only dream of living the life, or even having a sliver of whats in her closet.
Thinking back to the beginning of her career, who could have imagined that Paris Hilton’s best friend would one day out shine her in every way. The brand that was the Hilton sisters has long been eclipsed by all things Kardashians. From makeup lines (Kylie), denim lines (Khloe), and uber successful apps and video games, it’s hard not to be affected in some way by the Kardashian sisters and even harder not to notice the influence they, or more especially Kim, has had on fashion or even in the way people search for fame and fortune these days.
All things aside, its easy to see that Kim Kardashian is right where she always strived to be. A household name, a fixture in the fashion world, and the wife of a mega famous hip hop star, how could you not sit back and smile all while counting your millions from a couture filled closet. With the Met Gala approaching I’m tingling with excitement and anticipation over what this beauty has in store for us next.
