New obsession : Anja Konstantinova
Why? : Why not?
OK I'll answer better than just why not.
1. She's super adorable, but also looks mean at the same time. (in a good way of course)
2. She's 5'4" !!!!??!?!?! - same height as me so I'm pretty proud to say there's a successful petite model out there who's doing high end fashion; not just cheesy commercial fashion or portraits (so you can't see her proportion)
3. She Russian/Australian.
4. She's been in Vogue, and other magazines, but Vogue is all you need to know.
5. She has a lip tattoo that says 'MEOW' and a back of the neck tattoo that say 'CAT'
6. She has done a modelling editorial for Wildfox; one of the best editorials I have ever seen.
7. She is my short hair inspiration.
8. She rocks the bleached eyebrows so well.
I therefore announce, drum roll pleaseeee, Anja Konstantinova in Wildfox Swim!
Having a trendy and fashionable guy/girl on your arm is the latest accessory. Well, to be honest, we all know this; it's been a fact for decades. Johnny Depp and Kate Moss, Brangelina, Posh & Becks, Barack and Michelle Obama... etc. They would never be caught dead wearing matching outfits, but some how their different styles compliment each others so perfectly. Some may think it's the woman in relationship who tells the guy what to wear and what matches with what. But in the 'Kimye' situation, we all know who wears the fashion pants in that relationship; designer leather fashion pants in fact.
It is clear to see that Kim Kardashian's style has changed, pre-Kanye West she wore colour blocking and figure-hugging dresses that looked like 'eh, typical Kardashian style, nothing new to see'. But now... I haven't seen her wear as much leather, fur, black, high pony tails and high neck tops than ever before. From Yeti-like coats and to studded encrusted dresses, what he makes; she wears. I must admit Kanye's RTW collections looks stunning on her. Maybe Mr. West sees her as promoting his own designer products? ... No. I doubt it. I know what they have is true love, but how far would you change your style to suit the candy on your arm?
To be honest if I had a fashion icon boyfriend I wouldn't mind if he suggested what I should wear. Although, I question, does she miss the old Kim?
Exhibit A: notice the Pre-Kanye style. Doesn't it look like the usual Kardashian style? Even her hair styling has changed. High buns and high pony tails; it definitely contours her features but it loses her fun and girly vibe that we see in Pre-Kanye images.
From sources, (it's probably not so valid) Kanye was embarrassed to take Kim on his trip to Paris Fashion Week. I guess it's understandable because I can't imagine a flock of designers pleading her to be in their Front Row. So in order for Kanye to take his girl to all the fashion capitals, a transformation was needed.
Kanye has definitely taken the 'one or the other' concept into action. You know the rule of if you decide to show your cleavage you must cover up your legs and bum, and vice versa. Nowadays I rarely see her cleavage, now I just see many pencil skirts that exaggerate her famous buttocks. Actually, I tell a lie, I have she her show her cleavage 'with Kanye' and that dress was a showstopper; a green velvet deep V-neck beauty. But thinking about that, the dress was below knee length and shoulder-arm length. SEE! My conspiracy is proven!
I know that Kanye isn't controlling her and I am sure she also decides what she wants to wear. Even though her style has changed, she still adds that Kardashian essence. I can definitely say that the fashion figures are taking her more seriously now. I believe her style before was to show off her appearance, now I see her style is to show off her fashion sense. If my boyfriend told me what I should and shouldn't wear constantly, I would start to think he wants to change my individuality, but if he is a fashion icon, then maybe I would consider his suggestions - maybe.
Overall, Kanye is the right boyfriend for her, and the perfect stylist too!
