Kim Kardashian debuted an edgy makeover in pregnancy pictures for CR Fashion Book, and North's mom's shocking transformation was apparently a part of boyfriend Kanye West's plans to revamp the reality star's image.
It's no secret that West has played a large part in Kardashian's evolving style, and the rapper was even shown cleaning out his girlfriend's closet on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. "Kim really didn't like it when Kanye first started to take over her whole life, she felt like he was criticizing her," a source told Radar Online. "But now she's happy with how she sees herself changing."
West has apparently grown increasingly controlling over Kardashian's image since she gave birth to daughter North, but the new mom is gladly going along with her boyfriend's orders. "Ever since she had baby North she's been trying to conform to what Kanye wants, like staying out of the public eye and getting a makeover to look more glamorous," the source explained, "And she likes the results."
In fact, Kardashian is becoming increasingly supportive of West's grand plans because she wants to shed her reality star reputation. "Kim realizes that what Kanye wants for her is to move up a social ladder that she's anxious to climb," the insider said. "By doing what he says she believes she will reach another level of fame." North West's mom certainly looked transformed in the recently released pregnancy photos shot by Karl Lagerfeld, but that may only be the start.
"Kanye has big plans to totally revamp Kim's whole life," the source said. "He is specific in what he wants her to look like and dress like and she's happily going along with the plan now." The insider explained that Kardashian's edgy editorial shoot and newly-blonde locks are just the beginning of what is sure to be a lengthy transformation.
"There are more big changes planned and it seems like Kim is totally on board with everything Kanye wants," the source said. "She feels like she is becoming more sophisticated by following his advice."
