He famously cleared out her closet and gifted her with thousands of dollars worth of designer ensembles.

Speaking at the BoF West Summit at Westfield Century City in California the reality star confessed: 'I always thought I had really good style until I met my husband and he told me that I had the worst style.
'He was really nice about it and cleaned out my whole closet. I probably had 250 pairs of shoes and when we were done cleaning it out, I had two pairs left and I cried.'
She went onto explain that Kanye arranged for her now empty closet to be filled with designer items while the couple were out.

'We went to the Laker game and my closet was filled back up with all new stuff. There were racks of clothes of designers I have never heard of before like Lanvin and Givenchy. I didn't know that then. I kept everything because it was really sentimental to me,' she said.
'I wanted to learn. I wasn't offended when he said that. When he did that he wanted to teach me.'
Kim famously worked for Paris Hilton before finding fame on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, working as the socialite's closet organiser and assistant, and now she counts some of the world's top designers as her confidants.

Through Kanye, Kim befriended designers Riccardo Tisci, then of Givenchy and now at Burberry, and Balmain's Olivier Rousteing but she admitted it was initially difficult for her to be taken seriously in the fashion world.
'I went to Paris and started meeting with these people and no one would dress me at the beginning.'
'We would finally get a little in and Riccardo would dress me. He was the first person to really take a chance on me and he would teach me so much about the fits and cuts and how I should wear things.
'And then I became really close with Olivier. None of the samples would fit me, so they started to design things that were more curvy and that would fit someone who had more of my body type.'
