I really liked Kim quite early on. When the world was still criticizing her for her "claim to fame" I was thinking this girl has got something, something special and I didn't mean the tush. :)
It's the face, the hair, the body, the clothes, the way she carries herself, everything. Kim exudes soft and sexy femininity. She always looks "done". Even when she's running around in her Juicy Couture sweat suits and flip flops, she's in full make up with her hair done.
I not sure I would call Kim a fashion icon though, but she certainly inspires me to look my best at all times, step my game up, even if I'm just going grocery shopping.
She reminds me of that Coco Chanel quote:"I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny."
Kim is one of those women who seems to enjoy being a woman and all the fun stuff that comes with it.
