Is Kim Kardashian a fashion icon now?

By Alejandra Hernandez

From monogrammed Louis Vuitton purses in the early 2000s to Yeezy’s new sneakers, we’ve all witnessed Mrs. West’s fashion transformation through the years. The reality star is now a fashion icon without a doubt and the industry is loving her. Since her SNL appearance and those breath-taking Balenciaga looks, Kim’s now more accepted than ever by the fashion glitterati. Grab a seat and let’s see why:

Kim Jones said yes to Skims

One of the most respected designers, Kim Jones of Fendi, apparently teamed up with Kim K’s team in order to create a big partnership with Skims. Though we are not completely sure if its true, images quickly spread across social media, leaving everyone speculating about the possibility.

A Balenciaga muse

We’ve seen Kim wearing Demna Gvasalia’s Balenciaga’s most amazing outfits these past weeks. Starting with a hot pink suit jacket while leaving the Ritz, a sleeping bag-like coat to go out on a Friday, the label’s Knife boots paired with a beautiful Balenciaga silver tinsel coat, the Met Gala gown and of course the bridal look from the Haute Couture collection. This Icon is now a B-girl and her fashion stock keeps going up.

Her appearance on SNL

Saturday Night Live’s second show of the season delivered a huge rating thanks to the Kardashian effect. With some family roasting and references that kept us intrigued the whole time, the star delivered a perfect monologue in a striking Balenciaga pink body-con jumpsuit.

It’s safe to say Kim K is taking fashion more serious than ever (and her stylist should get a bonus!). For a long time, Kendall was the only member of the K clan serving high fashion looks, and we’re happy to see her big sister giving her a run for her money.
