Kim Kardashian How Kim Kardashian & Kanye West's style improved with time By Glamour 29 Aug 2016 Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, are they the most stylish couple on the A-list? Delve into their fash history to find out... In 2007, a sex tape featuring little-known LA socialite Kim Kardashian went viral, and boom! Suddenly, everyone wanted a snap of the hottest curves in town. She’d got the short hemline thing down pat, but the loose, baby doll shape was still way off the mark. Ten out of ten for effort, though. best-products.reviews top-obzor.com/ The same could be said for Kanye West who, in 2007, was a global hip hop megastar – and had the daring duds to prove it. Kim’s adventures in making a red carpet impact – for the right reasons – continued apace. Knee-high boots made a brief appearance but fortunately, disappeared as quickly as they’d arrived. Trainers? Check. Ultra-bright jacket? Check. Enormous, after-dark sunnies? Check, check, check. In July 2008, Kanye had cultivated a red carpet all of his very own. At the Spike TV Video Games Awards in December 2008, Kim’s signature siren style was beginning to emerge, butterfly-like, from the gold lamé of her cocktail dress. Nice bangs. Not content with being a music-world don, in 2009 Kanye announced his intention to master the fashion world, too. Cue a trip to the front rows of London Fashion Week, and some very nifty bowties. Avert your eyes, Kim fans! This denim get-up wasn’t our girl’s finest fashion hour – but to be fair, she was at a Reebok launch at the time. Those trainers would’ve looked a whole lot sillier with couture. Pow! In August 2009, a newly blond Kim as we know and love her had arrived – all fierce OTK boots, industrial strength waist-cinchers and flawless blow-dries. And she was just popping out for dinner with the fam. Standard. Kanye’s love of leather in all its guises (leather shirt, anyone?) is well documented, but for once, it wasn’t his experimental dress sense that nabbed him headlines the day after 2009 MTV Music Awards. His accessorising with a bottle of Hennessy is your clue... Run swiftly, Taylor! Kim didn’t let the fact that Lindsay Lohan and Ciara had both worn this shiny, hooded Brian Lichtenstein dress before her put her off her style stride as she whipped up her hair into a high pony and stepped into some suede booties to celebrate her 29th birthday. Giddy up! Red alert! Kanye went head-to-toe in scarlet as he performed at the MTV VMAs in 2010 – but there was no sign of danger this time around, as he was on his best behaviour after imma-let-you-finish-gate the previous year. Less was definitely more for Kim at the 2011 Grammys, as her barely-there gold Kaufman Franco dress managed to upstage Lady Gaga’s arrival in a giant egg. Such is the power of fashion. Meanwhile, Kanye was furthering his own style ambitions, jetting into Paris Fashion Week to appraise the Givenchy show (wearing the label’s must-have dog print T-shirt to do so, natch). The CFDA Awards are the hottest fashion ticket in town. Kanye ensured he stood out from the crowd at the 2011 ceremony by pairing his way-too-long bunched up jeans with slippers and so many friendship bracelets, we wondered whether he wasn’t involved in some kind of dare. And Kanye wasn’t the only one to give us a sartorial surprise that summer. You could’ve knocked us down with a feather when Kim Kardashian sashayed onto the red carpet at our Women Of The Year Awards in June, looking every inch Hollywood siren in her fishtail gown and door-knocker earrings. Love! The very next day, Kim shook off the formality of the night before to flash a sliver of tum, courtesy of this head-to-toe Gucci ensemble, at her Debenhams perfume launch in London. What a pro. Elsewhere, Kanye was also keeping it high-fashion – although you might not know it to look at him. A baseball cap front row at Louis Vuitton? We say! Thank heavens it was tempered by all that superstar bling. By August 2011, Kim and sisters Kourtney and Khloe, had made such a name for themselves on the celeb circuit that they were in a position to launch their own fashion line: Kardashian Kollection. Kim busted out her inner leopard for the resulting party. Grr. Newly-wed to her husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries, Kim seemed at pains to prove that that matrimony wouldn’t be toning down her ultra-sexy signature style at the 2011 MTV Video Awards in this plunging silver gown. Hmm... The Missoni headband was in place, but the heels were off - and we sensed trouble in paradise. Just a few days after this picture was taken, Kim filed for divorce from Kris Humphries after only 72 days of marriage. It was business as usual for Kanye, however, as he pulled on his favourite leather pants with an eye-catching printed bomber jacket to perform at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. We confess that we were fooled when the Kim rocked up at Kanye's own catwalk show at Paris fashion week, head-to-toe in his label. In our defense, Katy Perry was there too. And as much as this duo would quickly develop a matchy-matchy style, surely we could be forgiven for not intuiting that from the helmets? Come the Cannes Film Festival, it was all official, and the couple were firmly an item - although their wardrobes were still somewhat out of step. When a lady wears Balmain, Kanye, a little more effort is required! Fast forward to the Paris Couture shows in July, and Kim and Kanye had it nailed. They were the sartorial ying yang at Valentino - and our new style crush, Kimye, was born. Take one loose white top and pair of leather pants, add boots: his 'n' hers style had never looked simpler (or more luxurious). The pair took outfit-matching to new heights at the 2012 BET Awards. At least it tickled Jay-Z... The couple that slobs out together stays together. Or something. Maybe... Out for a 'low-key' dinner in Manhattan in July 2012, we snapped Kimye rocking some typically high maintenance pieces - although, Kanye, it's not polite to upstage your lady. And we suspect you knew that the leather harems would have that effect. Out and about in rainy Miami in October, Kanye’s feeling chivalrous – although he and his fair lady seem to have gotten dressed at opposing ends of the wardrobe spectrum. Bring back the colour coordination – all is forgiven! Kanye joined Kim for the launch of the Kardashian Kollection in London in November 2012, neglecting to dress to impress like his LBD-clad missus in a plaid shirt and sweater slung around his waist. Turns out, Kim was in the early stages of pregnancy here. Congrats, Kimye! And bring on the maternity wardrobe... Working one of this season’s biggest trends, together – in head-to-toe black and head-to-toe white, Kimye double up to make a monochrome duo. We can only imagine the planning that went into this look. Back on the red carpet after the birth of baby North AND their engagement announcement, Kimye strike a pose together – but forget Kanye, all we can focus on is Kim’s polo neck and clingy skirt combo. After a brief hiatus from dressing the same, Kimye proved that the couple that dresses together, stays together - well at least according to their latest matchy-matchy look. Whilst Kim (going through her chest-revealing phase, style-wise) wore a plunging, sheer top, fiancee Kanye wrapped up in a deep v-neck sweater layered with a t-shirt, chunky chain and leather trousers. Both Kim and Kanye worked the textured trend whilst out and about on a break from Kanye's Yeesuz tour. Kim wore fringed suede, whilst Kanye opted for a red brocade blazer. Blimey jingles these two know how to work an overcoat. Whilst out and about in chilly New York in late 2013, the high-fash duo proved they're no slouches when it comes to their winter wardrobes, plumping for long, luxe coats. Is Kim giving us a taste of (wedding-related) things to come, here? Pictured leaving a bash together in Miami in December 2013, the couple made a return to their much-loved sartorial go-to; His 'n' Hers monochromatic palettes. We'd like to think that the newly-engaged couple have all things wedding on the brain as Kim looked a vision in white lace - wedding dress, anyone? At Paris Couture Week in early 2014, Kim channeled her inner silver surfer in this metallic jumpsuit complete with white coat and Gianvito Rossi heels. Meanwhile, Kanye kept in sync with his missus, opting for silvery-grey leather trousers, white and grey separates and a most excellent camel coat. It’s darn cold in that New York which is why were weren’t surprised to see Kim and Kanye wrapped up warm in their big fluffy coats. What a stylish pair, ey? Kim and Kanye braced the wintry temperatures of NYC at the end of February in characteristically cool street chic. A colour-coordinated seasonal palette of tans, greens and black is a winning formula. The couple that gyms together, stays together? Well that certainly seems to be true in the case of Kim and Kanye who were spotted leaving a Paris gym together just days before their impending nuptials. Just hours later though and the couple just oozed glamour in this matchy-matchy his 'n' hers camel ensembles as they headed for dinner in the French capital. In mid June, the couple and baby North are spotted in New York City. One uber stylish family outing, wouldn't you agree? Stepping out in Ibiza in August 2014, Kim and Kanye went for matching black satin ensembles for a party on the Baleriac island. On a date night in London in September 2014 before the pair flit over to the French capital for Paris Fashion Week, Kim and Kanye enjoyed a very chic date night at London hotspot Hakkasan. We have to hand it to Kanye here too, who almost, almost eclipses his fashionable wife in this chic monochromatic get-up. En route to the Balmain show at Paris Fashion Week, KimYe supported their pal Olivier Rousteing by turning up in the label's threads from head-to-toe. And heading to the Balmain after-party, the two changed up their looks again with Kim opting for this unusual leggings and body outfit with an embellished jacket shoulder robed over the top. Leading to the Lanvin show in the evening though and Kim went for this daring plunging dress with a longline tuxedo worn over the top. Kanye kept it casual in a frayed sleeve shirt and ripped jeans, meanwhile. On a sunny day in mid October, Kimye were spotted heading to the cinema in LA. It's nice to see that they dress just like any other normal couple when they hit the movies - in cool and comfortable (of sorts) jeans and jersey. This couple could win awards for their co-ordinated dressing - Kimye looked fab in their matching double-breasted black jackets. And don't forget, Kim also likes to dress the same as her daughter North. We love their cute black jackets - and we can't see Nori's face, but we're pretty sure she'll be wearing a whopping pair of sunglasses too. Kimye's recipe for wintry sartorial success? A monochrome palette, featuring low necklines for Kim and a long coat for Kanye. Rejoice, Kimye fans. Mr & Mrs West are proving 2015 will be yet another stylish year. The couple were all smiles at the Roc Nation pre-GRAMMY brunch in LA. We love Kim's new LOB. So, Kim went platinum. Showcasing her new 'do during Paris Fashion Week, the star was the talk of the town. The Kardashian-West's took baby Nori to church on Easter Sunday dressed in all-white-everything. North's floral head wreath stole the style show this time though... Kanye West recycles his velvet jacket and Kim wears a denim bra, yes, bra, out in Paris. What happened to wearing a top?! We have a feeling Kanye may have had some influence over Kim's latest look. It's not often you see the lady in a hoody, is it? You know what, we really can't fault the couple's latest look. Posing on the red carpet at Time 100 in New York, Kim looked demure dressed in a princess-worthy floor length with Kanye by her side looking dapper. What a weekend for Kimye. Paris, London AND Glastonbury. The couple were snapped looking summer-colour co-ordinated in light garments in the city. Out in LA dressed in army pants and a black sweat top, the "greatest living rock star on the planet" proves less is more. Kanye West received the Video Vanguard life-achievement award at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. He took the opportunity to reveal that he will be running for President in 2020. Can you imagine? Kim as First Lady? Stay tuned. Kanye West and his pregnant wife take to the FROW at New York Fashion Week. The pair took their seats at the Givenchy show for Spring Summer 2016.

Kanye goes for print on print. Fur duster coar and short-shorts? Leave it to Kim K to pull it off. We just don't get why Kanye was wearing a hoodie mid-August.

For the Balmain afterparty Kim sported sunglasses at night and a metallic dress from the brand. Kanye went for an embroidered denim jackets that we're loving. The Wests sporting earthy tones and prints for a date night in Los Angeles. Holly sh*t Kim. Kanye really stepped out of the spotlight to let his woman shine, we almost didn't notice him in the pic. It was Kanye's big night - performing at the MTV VMAs - but that didn't stop Kim Kardashian steal the show once again in a totally sheer dress. Wet locks and lingerie-alike outfits are lately Kim's go-to. It would be ours too if we looked that good in it. Kanye takes the background in aa all-black ensemble and printed tee. It ain't a complete Kardashian-West look if your hair is not over the top. While Kanye went for platinum blond, Kim stepped out with her new signature locks, aka uber long.
