Kim Kardashian‘sand Kanye Westthe divorce brought a smattering of famous people into its orbit (Trevor Noah, Hillary Clinton and, of course, Pete Davidson), but we never expected the ex-couple to get Marge Simpson into their mess.
In the most recent episode of the famed family’s new Hulu series, “The Kardashians,” the reality star expressed anxiety about creating new fashion territory with no West, from which she divorced in February 2021 after six years of marriage.
The founder of Yeezy played an instrumental role in revising his ex-wife’s style – he demanded that her purge an entire closet of clothes months into their relationship – and hand-picked almost all the clothes she wore in public until their separation.
“It got to a point where I would ask for his advice on everything, down to what I’m wearing,” Kardashian told his sister Kourtney on Wednesday’s episode. “Even now I have panic attacks, like what am I wearing?”
Kardashian was left to fend for last year’s WSJ. Magazine’s Innovator Awards, where she was honored for her shapewear brand SKIMS. The brown leather dress, which she accessorized with matching gloves and above-the-knee snakeskin boots, however, received less than favorable reviews from West.
“He called me after,” Kardashian said. “She told me my career is over and then she showed me a picture of Marge Simpson wearing something like that.”
It’s unclear exactly what image West was referring to, but viewers quickly came up with a few options on Twitter after the episode aired.
Simpson, we must note, is a bit of a fashion pioneer in his own right, rocking garments from the luxury fashion house Balenciaga on an animated track last year.
Later in the episode, Kardashian seemed to find her own style set-up, but admitted she was “never really a visionary” when it came to fashion.
“Her language of love is clothes,” she said of West. “I’ve always trusted him, but it’s not just about clothes. That was, like, the last thing we really had in common. “
“I’m trying to figure out, like, who am I in the fashion world? Who am I alone? “He continued.” I’ve always been like the Kardashians with my sisters and then I was like Kimye. Like, who is Kim K? This is the leap. How do I get there without Kanye? “
If her recent Met Gala outfit is any indication, Kardashian is doing great in the fashion department. She caused all kinds of conversations for sneaking into the vintage dress worn by Marilyn Monroe at President John F. Kennedy’s birthday celebration in 1962.
Kardashian attended the event with her boyfriend, “Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson, whom she began dating in the fall after her debut as a host on a late-night sketch show.
In his new relationship, Kardashian has apparently taken on the role of West, with Davidson joking on the red carpet saying he “won’t let me wear my prop hat, but that’s okay.”
