Kanye West has made Kim Kardashian more "sophisticated".

The rapper-and-designer has been dating the socialite for six months and the brunette beauty credits her boyfriend for her recent dramatic change of style.

She said: "I've grown up a lot this year. My style's more sophisticated. And that's from my boyfriend, who's a designer, to just having my personality evolve.

"I think all boyfriends and girlfriends give each other tips and ask, 'Do you like this? Does it look good?'

"It wasn't like he came in and said, 'Oh my God, let me give you this makeover.' I wanted a new stylist and he suggested his."

In a recent episode of 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians', Kanye was seen convincing Kim to overhaul her wardrobe, but she insists it wasn't as dramatic as it seemed.

She told Britain's Grazia magazine: "I don't think it was as dramatic as it looked on the show. I had this closet full of clothes but I was only wearing a few things and I needed to get rid of a lot of it."

Kim admits she used to "overdo" her wardrobe and is now much more "muted".

She explained: "I would overdo it before. I'd wear a short skirt with my boobs out, necklace, earrings, rings, bracelets and high platforms.

"I cover up more and wear one accessory, if any. Everything is more muted, the colours, my make-up. I don't even wear fake lashes as much any more."
