It’s no secret that the 37-year-old is regularly styled by her husband who enjoys telling her what to wear and what to do, but this time, the 40-year-old may have gone a bit too far when he told her to ditch the big sunglasses and start wearing only tiny ones.
The email was revealed on the January 7 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians when Kim admits that her husband and stylist sent her an email saying she must wear the latest sunglasses trend.
Trendy: Kanye West sent Kim Kardashian, pictured in May, a memo in an email stating that she cannot wear big sunglasses anymore and instead, she has to start wearing tiny sunglasses
Thin shades: Kim broke the news to her friend on the January 7 episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, where she wore the hand-picked shades to lunch and laughed about it
Email: The 37-year-old, pictured in December, told Jonathan Cheban about the memo, ‘Kanye sent me a whole email like, “You cannot wear big glasses anymore”‘
In the latest episode of the reality series, Kim is seen heading out to eat with her best friend, Jonathan Cheban, when she shares the news with him that Kanye had sent her a memo insisting that she change up her favorite eyewear in order to keep in style with the latest trend.
Kim told Jonathan, ‘Kanye sent me a whole email like, “You cannot wear big glasses anymore. It’s all about tiny little glasses.”‘
She confessed this to her 43-year-old pal while wearing a pair of the tiny shades that Kanye had suggested and was laughing about the situation, seeming to show that she doesn’t think her husband’s behavior was too big of a deal.
‘He sent me like, millions of ’90s photos with tiny little glasses like this,’ Kim continued to Jonathan as she showed off her new Matrix style shades hand-picked by her husband.
It seems as though Kim wasn’t the only one to get the memo, and Kanye must have cc’ed Kendall and Kylie Jenner as well as Kourtney, considering all three sisters were also seen trying out the trend in recent months.

Stylist: This isn’t the first time Kanye has styled Kim – he even flew to France for 24 hours during PFW in February to style Kim and sister Kourtney, 38, for the Givenchy show (pictured)
Kim has been known for her oversized big blackout shades for a long time but Kanye must have gotten sick of her go-to sunnies, and Kim was quick to follow suit.
We can’t help but wonder, though, now that she’s back to wearing bigger glasses, if Kanye sent another memo telling her it’s okay to go back to bigger shades.
This certainly isn’t the first time Kanye has gone through absurd lengths to style Kim and tell her what to wear.
In the last episode of season 13 of KUWTK, Kim and Kourtney were in France for Paris Fashion Week when all of a sudden Kanye shows up unannounced.
The sisters were being fitted for the Givenchy show when he arrived out of the blue to help style the girls, saying, ‘You can’t see everything through the FaceTime.’
Flying to France for just a mere 24 hours, Kanye utilized his time by telling the sisters exactly what to wear and what looked good on them, even though they had the designers of the brand right there.
Aside from this wild scene, how could anyone ever forget the 2012 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians when Kanye completely cleaned out Kim’s closet.
France: Kanye said the reason he flew all the way to France was to help style the girls in person, saying, ‘You can’t see everything through the FaceTime’
Embarrassed: The reality star admitted that before Kanye she thought she ‘had the best style’ but she said, ‘I look back at outfits and I’m, like, mortified’
Grateful: Kim doesn’t mind Kanye styling her and even shared in a 2015 interview, ‘I really think that my relationship with my husband Kanye really changed everything’
At the time, the now married couple were freshly dating and Kanye showed up to Kim’s house with stylist Renelou Pandora, and they purged Kim’s entire closet to her own dismay and she even sobbed the entire time.
Despite Kim trying to fight Kanye’s changes, she later admitted in an interview back in 2015 that she was grateful for all of his help and he changed her life.
‘I really think that my relationship with my husband Kanye really changed everything,’ she said.
‘I mean, back in the day I thought I had the best style. I look back at outfits and I’m, like, mortified.’
Speaking out about Kanye and how he has a knack for spotting trends before they even start, Kim continued gushing about him in the interview.
‘Kanye sees what’s out there on the streets and just knows how to translate that into something that would look good on me,’ she said.
‘Just helping me push my limits a little bit and trying new things.’
