Kim Kardashian had an awkward phase, too. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star told CNN Style that she’s “mortified” when she looks back at old photos of herself before she started getting fashion tips from husband Kanye West.

"I mean, back in the day I thought I had the best style. I look back at outfits and I'm, like, mortified." Kim Kardashian old style
