Kim Kardashian, she of the mile-long eyelash extensions and butt-implant rumors, is toning down her look-for the man who once Tweeted his thanks to Julius Caesar for originating his hairstyle.

While neither member of Kimye could be called a wallflower, it's evident that Kanye West is indeed having a sartorial effect on his new love interest. Since they began dating in March, Kardashian has traded her Crayola-inspired wardrobe for neutrals (fashionista.com claims that West has banned his posse from wearing anything other than white, black, and gray) and has started wearing straighter, more relaxed hair instead of her signature sexpot waves.

I don't think I've ever dressed hip for a hipster or preppy for a prep, but I'll admit that in the past my style has changed to suit a new boyfriend. I'm an avowed dress lover, but when I went out with one particular outdoor enthusiast, I wore more pants-and even an occasional t-shirt-because it suited his lifestyle. That relationship didn't last (the athletic footwear and bugs were both deal breakers). So I'm curious to know if this new monochromatic Kardashian is trying too hard to fit into the rapper's stylized world, or if he's inspired her to take a liberating step away from the curling iron and neon brights. (But never fear-there is still plenty of boob exposure. You can't change a girl's DNA.)
