Kim Kardashian famously threw out all of her clothes at the urging of boyfriend Kanye West during a 2012 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and as the pregnant reality star tells Us Weekly, West has more of an influence on her style than fans may think.
"I dress for my man way more than for myself!" Kim, 32, revealed during a recent interview promoting her and sisters Kourtney and Khloe's plus-sized fashion line for Sears, Kardashian Kurves. So what exactly does rapper West, 35, prefer his girlfriend of nearly a year to rock? "Nothing!" laughs Kim. "No, he likes cool, drapey things. Very casual."
Calling her style "sleek, sophisticated and very monochromatic," Kim doesn't accessorize her looks the way sister Khloe, 28, does. "I'm a bit ghetto-fab," Khloe admits to Us in contrast. "I like things structured, but them I add bling. Kim is very simple -- she doesn't wear much jewelry unless it's gold or silver. I'm more like, 'Bring on the diamonds, Zsa Zsa Gabor-style!"
"I like fitted jeans and knee-high boots," continues Khloe. "Kim calls it Basketball Wife. I am married to a basketball player [the Los Angeles Clippers' Lamar Odom]!"
For Khloe, married to Odom since 2009, there's one fashion find she'll never throw out of her closet: Christian Louboutin button-up boots. "Like Kanye, Lamar says he likes me naked too. But then he remembers these Christian Louboutin boots I wore the first time I met him," Khloe explains. "He made me hold onto them. And whenever I wear them, he's like, 'Oh, yeah!' It takes him back to that night. I'll never get rid of them because of that!"
