In an interview for the style segment of London’s Sunday Times, Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kim Kardashian gave readers a rare glimpse into her new life as a mom. It’s her first interview since little North West arrived, and the reality star opened up about everything from her relationship with baby daddy Kanye West to dropping the pregnancy weight and her latest fashion choices.
During the interview, Kim discussed how Kanye influences her style. “You want your guy to think you’re really hot. I’ll put something on and he’ll [Kanye] say, ‘No, that doesn’t look good’, and I’ll trust him,” she said. This makes sense, as the rapper also dabbles in fashion design and presents himself as something of an expert when it comes to style. Take the outfits he wore during his opening Yeezus show over the weekend. First there was the t-shirt featuring a naked Kim Kardashian, which he donned backstage before the show. Then there were the weird, sparkly masks he paired with sagging leather pants and high-tops during the concert. The guy clearly understands the subtle nuances of fashion.
The fashion discussion continued in Kim’s interview, where the reality star also revealed her new penchant for lighter colors, which she attributes to baby Nori’s influence. “I want to dress a little lighter colorwise. I think North looks cute in light colors, and then I want to wear light colors,” she explains. “North doesn’t typically wear pink, though. She wears mauve or blush, not, like, typical baby pink.” Again, there’s an obvious understanding of fashion subtlety at play here, because DUH, blush is totally different from pink, guys.
Of course an interview with a new mom wouldn’t be complete without a discussion of how she’s losing the dreaded baby weight, but the Keeping Up with the Kardashian star says she isn’t in a hurry to drop the extra pounds. She says she’s been doing the low-carb Atkins diet, but hasn’t been working out too much, even though she’s been papped coming out of cardio bootcamp and Pilates classes. She says she’s still got some work to do weight-wise, but is going to take it slow.
Props to Kim for ignoring the pressure on women – and especially celebrities – to lose baby weight in record time. Being a mom must have made her realize (somewhat) what’s important, because pre-Nori, the reality star also told the London Times that the constant criticism she received during her pregnancy “completely destroyed” her. She must have been taking tips from Mr. Leather Pants Sparkle Face West during those nine months, huh?
Well, what do you think about Kim’s interview? Can you appreciate her honesty, or is she as superficial as she’s always been? Tell us in the comments!
