Kim Kardashian has talked about being husband Kanye West's style muse but insists she doesn't usually like to follow the crowd when it comes to fashion - and she has a good reason!

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star made an appearance at the Vogue 100 Fashion, Friendship and Fabulous lashes Q&A alongside make-up artist pal Charlotte Tilbury over the weekend, and she was quizzed on Kanye's world-famous Yeezy collection by fans.

When asked if she has an important role in the design process, Kim said that she loves to help him break the mould.

"[Kanye and I] are together 24/7 and he sees what's lacking in my closet and in my wardrobe and with the colour palettes," she said.

The reality star continued, "I try samples on all the time to help him with fits and to make sure they fit all different body types. I'm not trying to be really tall and skinny because that is just never going to happen for me so why not just embrace your body?"

The mum-of-two went on to explain that she finds it difficult to follow popular fashion trends thanks to her stunning, world-famous curves, but she said that dressing for her body shape hasn't and never will be an issue.

"I think [curves] are becoming trendy," Kim reassured the audience. "Designers are designing for more shapely women. I don't follow trends and I don't feel pressured to follow them. I definitely look at trends in magazines and I love looking and beautiful pictures and reading everything but I don't particularly follow trends or try to."

Kim went on to say, "I don't have a lot of options, just being so short and my proportions are not so typical so we try to make a lot of clothes. I love Vivienne Westwood [and] I love vintage shopping and putting different looks together. Sometimes things just happen!"

But it isn't just Kanye and his clothing collection that Kim is able to influence so easily - oh no! The stunner even went on to explain how she gives younger sister Kylie heaps and heaps of ideas, too!

"People say don't mix business with family but I think there's no other way," Kim said. "Even if we did separate things - for example Kylie has her Kylie Lip Kits and she has her make-up line and we are so proud of her and we will encourage her and I will send her pictures of new colours I think she should do. I think there's nothing better than working with your family. We truly want the best for each other."
