21/10/2018 - 11:44 AM

You've obviously heard of Kim Kardashian. She is a makeup mogul [1], reality TV [2] queen, and style extraordinaire [3]. Well, it was not always that way. In a recent interview on Ashley Graham [4]'s new podcast [5], Pretty Big Deal, Kim revealed her struggle to find designers who would dress her earlier in her career due to her curvy figure.

When asked about body inclusivity in the high fashion industry, here is what Kim had to say:

"It definitely is a challenge. I mean, I think Olivier [6] from Balmain [7], he's been so great! We've had conversations about, you know, sizing and shapes, and he literally made a whole collection with these, like, hips and corsets and bigger shapes and bigger sizes from those conversations."

Those conversations have clearly paid off, because some of Kim's best fashion moments have happened while wearing Balmain. The proof is in these photos!
