Kanye wants natural 'Kate' look for Kim

Kanye West prefers Kim Kardashian to have a "natural" look like Kate Middleton.

The rapper has been advising his reality TV star girlfriend's style team on how he wants her to look, naming Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, as a reference point.

Kim's stylist Rob Scheppy told the Daily Star newspaper: "Kanye does like to get involved with Kim's look. He actually has a lot of input…He has amazing style so we take his opinions to heart and I say, 'OK, I'll try it.'

"Catherine Middleton has influenced her look while in London. Catherine's amazing. We watched her wedding and we thought it was beautiful."

Rob added 'Stronger' hitmaker Kanye - who has his own women's fashion line DW Kanye West - is not afraid to speak his mind, and dislikes it if Kim wears too much make-up.

He added: "Kanye's not afraid to say what he likes. He definitely likes the less-is-more look. Everyone wants to look good for their man, so Kim will listen and say, 'OK. I'll go with what my boyfriend says.' "

Kanye has been in London over the weekend while he performs with Jay-Z for their 'Watch The Throne' tour, but on Sunday, Kim was the one ordering him around, reportedly sending him away from a party because he spent too much time with fellow revellers.

A source said: "Kim was all over Kanye at the start, but when he started to mix with other people she had a stern word and took him away from the party. He followed her orders with minimum fuss. He knows the deal."
