'I really think that my relationship with my husband Kanye West really changed everything,' Kim said. 'I mean, back in the day I thought I had the best style. I look back at outfits and I'm, like, mortified.'

'I remember one day he [Kanye] brought me Carine Roitfeld's book and was like you should be studying this book this is like the fashion bible and I was like '"who's Carine" I knew nothing, and he said watch, one day she's going to style you.'

'Kanye sees what's out there on the streets and just knows how to translate that to something that would look good on me, just helping me to push my limits a little bit and trying new things.'

When Kim first started dating Kanye West, rumours were flying that the singer had made her completely 'cleanse' her wardrobe and give her a complete style makeover.

Kim Kardashian also spoke about how things are changing within the fashion industry, especially when it comes to body shapes. 'My body type is not your typical model body type. It's exciting that I feel that designers are seeing different body shapes and styles and are willing to take that risk.'
