Kim Kardashian says she’s ‘having panic attacks’ without Kanye as her stylist

Kim Kardashian is struggling to rediscover her personal style.

In a scene from Thursday’s new episode of Hulu’s “The Kardashians,” the Skims founder opens up to sister Kourtney about the difficulties of getting dressed for big events since she filed to divorce Kanye West in early 2021.

Throughout their seven years of marriage (and nearly a decade as a couple), the “Donda” rapper famously did double duty as Kardashian’s stylist, giving her a closet makeover in 2012 — as captured on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” — and masterminding many of her most iconic red carpet looks.

“I got to a point where I would just ask him for advice for everything, down to what I wear. Even now I’m having like panic attacks, like, ‘What do I wear?”” Kim, 41, told Kourtney, 43.

While West, 44, styled his estranged wife for her “SNL” hosting gig in October 2021, Kardashian was on her own for the WSJ. Magazine Innovator Awards the following month, where she was honored for her Skims brand.

“I was like, ‘How do I wear something that hasn’t been pre-vetted first?'” the star recalled, adding that choosing a look took a toll “psychologically” and that she was “so nervous.”

To add insult to injury, West wasn’t exactly a fan of the leather Skims x Fendi dress she picked out, in which she nearly suffered a wardrobe malfunction when it unzipped as she prepared to collect her Brand Innovator award.

“He called me afterwards. He told me my career is over and then he showed me a picture of Marge Simpson wearing something similar,” Kardashian deadpanned.

While the brunette bombshell publicly credited West with “introducing [her] to the fashion world” at December’s People’s Choice Awards, the Grammy winner has since gone on to influence other women’s wardrobes.

During his whirlwind one-month relationship with Julia Fox, West styled the “Uncut Gems” actress in a series of Kardashian-esque outfits — and he now seems to be doing the same with new muse Chaney Jones, who bears an uncanny resemblance to his most famous ex.

While Kardashian wore Balenciaga (one of West’s favorite labels) to the 2022 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, she didn’t appear to have been styled by her ex.
