If you’ve been following the two-headed monster known as Kim-Ye down lovers lane, then you probably saw this interesting scene from the latest epi of Keeping Up With The Kardashians:
I was personally very confused. I’ve BEEN confused. I didn’t mind Yeezy playing a fairy godmother to Amber Rose because well, as we can clearly see now in her post-Ye stage, the buzzed one needed a third eye. But something about watching Kanye put them paws on Kimmy’s wardrobe, made me want to kick his $5,000 denim’d crotch with an Aldo heel.
Maybe it’s because I’m not feeling Kim’s monochromatic blah-on-blah look all too much. It most certainly doesn’t scream ‘Let’s make a sextape tonight, Yeezy!’ which is great I guess, but it also doesn’t really feel organic around those hips either. Or maybe it’s because I think Kanye’s a label-munching megalomaniac and feel like Kim’s only enabling his control disease. Or maybe, me and her and her and her and her and her are just over-exercising our right to over-think?
I lassoed a gang of fellows to share their thoughts on why Kanye’s the man for dressing his woman. Check out these answers:
“I think it’s acceptable. I’ve helped past partners with styling and if she’s open to it, why not? Being in a relationship is about learning from each other, and fashion can be included in that sharing of knowledge. Plus, Kanye and his stylist are credible people to look to for help with a wardrobe makeover in my opinion lol. I don’t look at it as control issues, unless it was an ultimatum proposed, which I doubt. My ex is a stylist and she definitely helped me in the past as well, but its only because I let her, and it looks like Kim did the same thing.”—Shine, 25
“If he’s tapping that on a consistent, exclusive basis, he can def make a few SUGGESTIONS to her on switching up her flow. If you’re a dude that will be walking around with a beautiful woman, if anything, you’re going to try to make sure she ALWAYS looks good because if for any other reason, it will make him look better too. No dude worth anything will suggest the woman not look better, so if anything, all he’s trying to do is improve her. He’s seen her in clothes and naked, if ANYBODY knows what will compliment her most, it’s him. If it’s something she doesn’t like or can’t get with, and she makes it clear, either dude gets with the program or get lost. And besides, what woman gets MAD when a guy shows interest in helping her dress? That sh-t drives me crazy cause I’ve been there. Most dudes don’t say sh-t and you get mad when I want to help?!—Von, 27
“Kanye giving Kim a makeover can definitely be rationalized. The agreement overall came from both sides, and not just Kanye’s side. Kim wanted to switch up her look and tone it down a bit, therefore, she knew Kanye was the right person to make her more aware of a higher fashion access.”—Gabe (StuffFlyPeopleLike.com), 33
“Kim really needed a makeover, mainly because she dresses like a vixen which makes everyone remember that the only reason we know her name is because of that sex tape. Kanye’s not an average Joe rocking whatever… that guy lives for fashion, so why not take his advice? Women are always having their guys try more fitted this or less sporty that, but nothing negative’s ever said about that.”—Stanley, 23
“I think if deep down inside, she’s fine with it, then it’s okay. There’s nothing wrong with making a change, but it has to be Kim’s decision on whether she wants to do a makeover or not.”—Fred, 21
And lookee here, I’ve got a man who actually *disagrees* with everyone up top…
“Nah he’s wilding for respect. It’s understandable that any fashionable man wants his partner on or above his level, looks wise. But 1. Theres a difference between going shopping with her and subtly telling her what floats your boat vs. deading her whole life 2. Fashion and how you carry yourself is a matter of expression… So if he thinks she looks wack she may just have wack personality. I’ve said enough there. Overall I think if you feel the need to completely revamp your shorty, maybe that ain’t shorty for you.”—Rondell, 28
So gals, here’s something we have to consider, I’m going to whisper it: double standard. Here it is yo. When women makeover dudes it’s often applauded, but when the roles reverse it’s criticized. Our beloved gays shouldn’t be the only members of team testosterone we’re comfortable playing dress up with. Now, if f-ckboy is trying to upgrade you by degrading you—throw up the twos. But if you admire his own personal style and are looking to make a closet switch-up, why not have the guy who takes your clothes off, help you put your clothes on?
That was a non-rhetorical question by the way, lol. If you agree, holler if ya hear me! And if you don’t, well go head and grab that bullhorn, kingstress.
Till next time! Much x and o,
