Is Kim Kardashian Fash-Jacking Gwyneth Paltrow and Co. To Prove Her Style Icon Status?

16 July 2012 by

We are in the midst of watching a fashion transformation, courtesy of Kim Kardashian. The personal shopper-turned-reality star-turned-fashion AND beauty empress is doing a style 360 before our very eyes.

Speaking to Harper's Bazaar last week, Kimmy K revealed she has grown up and changed her style of late, leaving behind her tight Herve Leger bandage dresses and Juicy Couture velour tracksuits, instead opting for more fashion forward pieces by design big shots including Lanvin, Celine and Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci. Impressive, no?

Perhaps it's her new beau, Kanye West, who is influencing this big change in the KK wardrobe — their matching monochrome ensembles have both warmed our hearts and made us cringe in equal measure in recent months. But after some close studying of Kimmy’s recent looks, it seems it isn’t just the rapper who is inspiring her newly chic-ed up wardrobe. It’s all her A-list pals!

Check out the gallery above and you'll see Kim’s been taking tips from her style icons including Gwyneth Paltrow and Miranda Kerr to up her fashion ante. We also wonder whether she's following in the footsteps of our very own DoC, Kate Middleton, whose wardrobe recycling has made her one of fashion’s most talked about ladies.

So whether it's for a bit of extra press attention or if Kim is just into a little kopy-katting (soz), we can't tell. Either way, we're all for a little originality in these parts.
