The SKIMS founder has been quite a prominent star in the fashion industry but most of the credit goes to Kanye West, her ex-husband who helped her pick her outfits. Kanye even revamped her whole closet, discarding everything he didn’t like in her closet. Kim has shared how she has been difficulty styling herself since their split in February. In fact, after she made her first public appearance without taking any help from Ye, he called her to tell her she looks like Marge Simpson and that her career was ‘over.’
The beauty mogul appeared on the Hulu Series show The Kardashians, last week and gave viewers a tour of her literal warehouse full of 30,000 garments. Fans were taken aback by her huge collection and some even called it ‘wasteful.’ One person wrote, “Kim k having a warehouse with 30,000 pieces of archived clothing she hasn’t seen since 2012 feels so wasteful.”
“Not because its cool to hate on Kim or whatever, but this goes beyond collecting fashion pieces. This is plain hoarding, and many young creatives may benefit and be inspired by seeing the same 30,000 pieces in a public institution like a museum,” tweeted another. Kim decided to fire back at this criticism by wearing one of her old dresses to her sister, Kourtney Kardashian’s wedding. She wore a stunning black Dolce & Gabbana dress.
Sharing pictures of herself from the wedding, she wrote, “Fun fact about this look for the wedding. I know you guys just saw me in my [archive] on last week’s episode of The Kardashians!” she went on. “I have every piece photographed and on an app. So when I knew I was going to Italy (LOVE a theme for a trip) I pulled all my Dolce & Gabbana clothes to try on again and see if I could re-wear anything!”
Kim also shared a photo from the 2011 Glamour Awards, where she was wearing the same black gown. She wrote, “The dress I wore to the wedding was a Dolce & Gabbana I purchased at Bergdorff Goodman in 2011 and wore it to the Glamour Awards.” Fans were surprised to see that Kim rocked two of her old pieces from her untouched set of garments without hesitation.
