Kim Kardashian: I had to learn the hard way not all clothes suit my body
Kim Kardashian has said she’s “learnt the hard way” that not all clothing suits her.
The reality TV star and wife of Kanye West told CNN Style that it’s important to know your body type.
“So many things look amazing on my sister Kendall, we have completely different bodies and you know something could look amazing on the runway and then just not fit my personal body type,” she said. “So I think that’s been a lesson that I’ve had to learn – sometimes the hard way – that sometimes things don’t always work out.”
Currently pregnant with her second baby, Kardashian is not shy of showing off her growing bump.
“Being pregnant and a lot heavier, I think you have to show off the curves. It’s not like I’m trying to hide my pregnancy, whereas my last pregnancy, I was trying to find looks that would hide it. You just have to embrace it, to show the bump,” she said.
She credits West with introducing her to former Vogue Paris Editor, Carine Roitfeld’s coffee table book, Irreverent, often referred to as the “fashion bible”.
She recalled his sage words at the time: “‘You should be studying this book, this is like the fashion bible.’ And I was like ‘Who is Carine?’. I knew nothing. And he said ‘Wwatch, one day she’s going to style you’.”
“Kanye sees what’s out there on the streets and just knows how to translate that into something that would look good on me.
