Is Kim K channelling Beyoncé?

What’s up with the new more discreet Kim Kardashian? Our Celeb Junkie blogger wonders if she is inspired by classy Beyoncé.

Something about Kim Kardashian has been bugging me for a while now – and I think I’ve finally nailed it. From the new blonde hair to toning down her desperate need for publicity, it looks like she’s taking a leaf out of Beyoncé’s book.

Let me paint you’re a picture: B may dance around in a skimpy leotard on stage but she manages to retain a sense of dignity and class. She has also, to a degree, managed to maintain a sense of mystery despite being one of the planet’s biggest pop stars and married to rap royalty. There may be the odd paparazzi shot of her, Jay Z and baby Ivy Blue holidaying on a yacht, but for the most part they control what the public sees of their family, posting pictures online themselves, and doing very select interviews.

Kim, er, not so much. From the scandals (the sex tape that launched her career, disastrous marriages) to the over-sharing on her reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians, there’s not much we don’t know about her life. Thanks to the K sisters we know all sorts of unnecessary intimate details – from waxing down there to the benefits of eating one’s placenta after giving birth.

But with her privacy-crazy boyfriend Kanye West now on board and a baby to consider, things seem to be changing. She rarely goes out now and when she does she appears almost subservient alongside her rapper beau, preferring to let him do the talking. Then there’s the lighter hair, giving her a softer (less vampy) image, and her slightly more chic wardrobe (well when her boobs are not on display).

What do you think – is Kim finally growing up?
