Is Kanye West Now Dressing Kourtney Kardashian Too?

AKM-GSI; Splash News Online; Xposure USA

When Kim Kardashian began dating Kanye West, one of the things she got (well, besides a finalized divorce and a new baby) was a whole new wardrobe. West gave her a major closet makeover, and, for better or for worse, she’s really stuck by his fashion guidance and leveraged her haute new relationship into collaborations with big-name designers.

And since their daughter North is BFFs with sister Kourtney’s daughter Penelope, we can’t help but wonder if Kanye’s imparting now his style wisdom to a new pupil: Kim’s eldest sis. Typically the least adventurous of the Kardashian clan, Kourtney has been spotted out lately in some truly head-turning styles that seem to have Kanye’s calling card attached.

RELATED: Vote on more star style in Last Night’s Look!

First up: Kanye never met a pair of complicated shoes he didn’t like, and these studded, heeled, knee-high gladiators definitely fall into that category. And with his recent foray into denim, we could see him giving the stamp of approval to these destroyed boyfriend cutoffs.

And of course we all know about Kanye’s commitment to wearing one look from head-to-toe. Never one to play down a statement, he’d totally okay this tightrope print pantsuit. Finally, that Miley Cyrus-approved Moschino belt and mega-bucks Birkin bag are totally in line with the major designer labels the rapper loves to flaunt.

Tell us: Do you think Kourtney’s picking up Kanye’s style tips at playdates? Do you like her new, edgier look?

That first outfit is horrible. The second and third look nice. I don’t see any leather though so clearly Kanye is not responsible.

Lynda on

Is that Kim??? I thought it looked like Kourtney

Lynda on

Oops nevermind I reread it, it is Kourtney…my bad!!!

Danielle on

Kim is going to be tired of Kanje controlling ways……even her hair color and style, what does he think she is….? A PERSON WITH NO BRAINS…?

Princess07 on

The first outfit is a hot mess. The second is okay, but she should never leave the house without eye makeup. The third is a decent look for her. Kanye, please stay in your lane. A stylist for women you are not.

Leigh on

Everything about that middle outfit is atrocious, including hair, make up and accessories.

betty on

According to Fox News, there’s a new app to get rid of Cyrus/Kardashian in your browser. It blocks out all words/pix Cyrus, Kardashians, The Kardashians. It’s free and it works!!!.Now all they need to do is add the words “Jenner” and I’ll be one happy camper!

dawn on

the 1st outfit makes her look like a clown.


If he is responsible, make him stop!!! Whoever is responsible~ please make them stop!!!! IMO (and I am entitled to my opinion) only the last outfit was nice, very nice. The other 2 are going to land Kortney on Fashion Police. Joan is going to have a field day with these looks!

Lesli on

Kayne..”stylin”..hahahahahahaha… joke I’ve heard this morning…..

whateveryousay on

….South East is a newborn that doesn’t know her foot from a bird, that “bff” line is ridiculous

Lindsay on

Kourtney has always been the most stylish and the biggest risk-taker when it comes to fashion of the three sisters. She doesn’t need Kayne’s help.

Dana on

Not thinking it’s an improvement. She looked good before………

Neese38 on

Those ouftis are U-G-L-Y!!!
Kourtney Kardashian should get some good fashion ideas from best dressed Kerry Washington. Fini.

redd on

She looks like an idiot!!!

Busines is business on

Kourtney has always has her own unique style. How dare you all try to give the credit to Kanye.

emma on

The third outfit is perfect. The other two are horrible

Lisa D'Ambrosio on

The third outfit is the only one that’s attractive and flattering. The whole family will bow down to Kanye and do whatever he wants for Kim’s sake.

Emily on

Monica Rose Styles her. Did her black jumper outfit for sure and is who she typically uses. NOT Kanye. Ridic article written just to get a click but clearly knows nothing.

Kristen on

Idon’t know if Kanye is the underlying source to blame. I have been questioning the atrocities she has been wearing for several years! It started with the maternity wear she choose for her first child and it has been downhill since! Bring back the Kourtney fashion of the Kourtney and Khloe in Miami!

dianamegann on

Kanye may give fashion tips, but it’s Monica Rose who is Kourtney’s stylist. She posts the looks she styles for the Kardashians on her instagram (monicarosestyle).

fan of boardwalk empire on

I like the last outfit the best. I think that Kourtney has great style all by herself !

Heather on

No, I think Monica Rose styles her. They both have tweeted these pics. I’m just a casual follower and I even know that People! But nice way to try to work Kanye into a headline!

Carolyna on

The new must be so slow today that they’re not creating the worst stories I’ve ever read in my life. The Kardashians need to disappear. So sick of hearing about them. Honestly, who truly cares?!

MrMonkee on

@Carolyna: you are your own worst enemy. You complain about stories about the Kardashians but yet you post a comment which only helps to keep them relevant. The more posts. the more stories. Supply and demand at it’s best. Thank you for helping make it possible for another Kardashian story.

Stassi on

The boots with the raggedy jeans are just horrendous. The red lipstick on the 2nd outfit has got to go. The 3rd outfit looks GREAT.

Jeannine on

This article is reaching. Kourtney has always tried new looks from time to time. Some work, some don’t but that’s what makes fashion fun!

sam on


Di on

Definitely not embracing the first look at all. Warming to the second. The third is better.

Kim on

I think its great Kanye has imparted some design sense to these gypsies.

It's Just Me on

@ Sam something tells me that you are well-acquainted with “hoes” of all races and gender…but why is race even being discussed here? Your comment was random and completely irrelevant. And I totally agree with Lindsay’s comment…Kourtney has always had a unique sense of fashion and usually is the most stylish out of the three sisters. Though she occasionally makes a bad judgement call (lol the outfit in the first picture above is a good example), Kourtney does just fine on her own and does NOT need Kanye’s “help”.

Kathy on

Let’s hope she isn’t letting Kanye style her. Kim has looked HORRIBLE listening to him.

Roxanne on

OMG Kounrtney,
Get rid of all the clothes!!!! The second one, I thought you were a old lady. You looked so good in the past. God girl, you look old.

Ana on

NOOOOOOOOO!!! Kourtney has always dressed awesome with her OWN style.

moi on

Did she have something done to her face like plastic surgery or botox, because to me her face looks different?

Lynn on

Hate the first outfit because of the gladiator sandals, the shorts are too baggy. The second look like it was bought in the old ladies department and makes her hips looks enormous. The hair and makeup look like no style at all. I love the third look. It looks like the usual Kourtney…and she is cute.
