    As much as I don’t like Kanye’s public personality, I wasn’t stuck by him commenting that something doesn’t look good. It seemed like he was giving a straightforward opinion, not being mean or demeaning in anyway. However, I was struck with Kim’s apparent need for his approval of how she looks! Maybe it’s true that women or men, want their S.O.to think they’re “hot” but the emphasis seemed to be that she determines what she wears by his approval – which is sad for her.

    I have been following the Kardashians for a while, and was bothered right from the beginning when Kim wanted Kanye’s stylist to come re-do her closet. The stylist wanted to get rid of almost everything she had worn. I think more bothersome was Kim’s submitting her fashion sense to Kanye’s. Fashion is a very individual thing, and I think Kim should be standing up for her own opinions and not basing them all on her husband. Also, I think it is a mistake for him to put her in a position where he is the ‘expert’ on fashion, and she submits. He needs to let her shine in her own area of expertise! I do not have faith that their marriage will last because of this. Reminds me a bit of Elvis and Priscilla.
