Libra queen Kim Kardashian is doing anything but slowing down. As a reality star, beauty mogul, shapewear entrepreneur, app developer, budding lawyer, and mom of four, she has the kind of drive that is awe-inspiring. While we are reluctant to give fashion credit to her formative red carpet years (hey, the early aughts weren’t kind to anyone), she has become something of a style icon along the way.
Her penchant for nudes and neutrals in body-hugging silhouettes that show off her exaggerated curves is so well-known that she can easily lay claim to inventing the look – especially when one of her sisters tries to cop it. However, in researching her best red carpet looks, we were shocked to discover that Kardashian once championed color – and by that, we mean heaping doses of crimson red, mustard yellow, metallic purple, emerald green, bubblegum pink, and cobalt blue. So complete is her transformation into a neutral-clad goddess now that other hues seem to have fallen off her color wheel.
Today, in honor of the reality star’s 39th birthday, Savoir Flair is taking a look back at 39 of her best red carpet looks. See if you’re able to spot when her style evolved (a.k.a. the moment Kanye West was handed the reigns).
