Kanye West Sent Kim Kardashian an Email Asking Her to Stop Wearing Big Sunglasses

Anyone who picked up a tabloid in the aughts knows that oversize sunglasses were once the great staple accessory in celebrity fashion—for reality stars, especially. (The more prominent and bedazzled the designer logo, the better.) But of late, the First Family of E!, spearheaded by Kim Kardashian, has abandoned these once-iconic, face-obscuring frames in favor of even more nostalgic eyewear: teeny-tiny, 90s inspired sunglasses. And apparently, this eyewear switch-up can be traced back to one Kanye West.

Per People, Kardashian received an email from West, re: her sunglasses, which she recalled on a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. (Apparently, these sartorial memos are a regular occurrence, but that’s something to be fleshed out in a later season.) In this particular message, he had one very specific request for his wife: The oversize sunnies Kim was once known for need. To. Go.

"[Kanye] sent me a whole email like, ‘You cannot wear big glasses anymore,'" Kim explained. "He sent me like, millions of nineties photos with tiny little glasses.” Per The Cut's estimations, this episode was likely filmed in early May.

Of course, we’d already noticed this eyewear trend long before the episode aired—beyond Kim's wardrobe to her entire family, and then the fashion world at large. (Bella Hadid is rarely seen without some tiny glasses, and cool teen/Kardashian fan Millie Bobby Brown has worn a similarly small pair with her best outfits.) Kanye's style influence goes even further when it comes to Kim: According to People, she was also wearing an outfit entirely picked out by the musician and designer—which, yes, included those little glasses—to explain this new norm on the show.

West’s influence on Kardashian’s style has been well-documented. He’s styled outfits from his label, Yeezy, for Kim for years; in the past few months, we've mainly seen her photographed in clothing exclusively from his line. And back at the start of their relationship, we all watched as Kanye cleaned out Kim's closet on national television, and made her cry in the process. Maybe don’t throw out that collection of oversize sunnies just yet, Kim—you never know when they’ll be back.
