Since hooking up with Kanye West, Kim Kardashian has swapped her 'cheesy' clothes for designer garb - and looks VERY different

Kim Kardashian has been a new woman since she started dating Kanye West in 2012.

The reality star – who had been pals with rapper Kanye for several years before they finally got together – admits that he did something very special for her when they became an item.

Was it a romantic meal? A holiday? A diamond ring? Er, no, he sorted out her wardrobe for her. Obvs.

It seems that Kanye didn’t particularly approve of Kim‘s garish fashion sense so decided to change her look. He wouldn’t even let her keep things for their daughter North West to wear one day – harsh!

‘I was obsessed with glitter, rhinestone heels and the kind of clothes I now laugh at, and he threw them all out,’ says Kim, 34.

‘I said, “Well, I’m going to save them for my daughter one day.” And he said, “Well, if it’s going to be our daughter, she’s never going to wear those!”

‘I think he probably thought they were a bit cheesy.’

The episode heralded the start of a whole new style-conscious Kim. Thanks to Kanye, Kim has totally changed her style after getting an ‘education’ in fashion and credits her man with giving her the best sartorial advice.

‘I really trust his opinion,’ she explains. ‘Since I had the baby, I haven’t been working with a stylist, we’ve just been doing it ourselves, and I love that. He is my best stylist.’

Kim denies that 37-year-old Kanye is controlling though and instead says he’s made her feel much more confident about fashion, something that’s been clear to see in the mum-of-one’s very revealing outfits of late.

‘I like nudity. Kanye always says, “Dress sexier,”‘ she tells The Sunday Times Magazine. ‘He’s always most encouraging.’

It’s quite astounding to see just how drastically Kim has overhauled her look from slightly trashy to high-fashion afficionado since being with Kanye. Click through above to see the evidence!
