We all have heard the news of Kanye West’s new wife Bianca Censori. The timeline was unsettling for most of us. First Kim Kardashain and Kanye West were married for seven years, up until 2022. After one year of divorce, Kanye then married Bianca Censori in 2023 after two months of dating. What we know about Bianca is that she is a very smart and powerful woman. She received a masters in architecture from University of Melbourne in 2020 and immediately started working at Yeezy at the head of architecture. 

Everything changed for her when she started to be seen with Kanye West

We can see an identity shift through her sense of style and what she wears in public. Instead of wearing professional clothes like she used to, she is wearing skin tight sheer clothing everywhere she goes. Is her fashion sense uplifting women or is it the effect of control and domination by men and in this case, by her husband Kanye West. 

When Kanye West was married to Kim Kardashian he was her stylist, and everyday he would pick out an outfit for her to wear in public. It often seemed like he was promoting his brand Yeezy by making Kim wear his new products. Usually, what he dressed Kim in was tight fitting clothing that was revealing, similar to how Biance Censori is dressing now. 

Kim Kardasain related to Bianca and Kanyes relationship and explains how she sees the connections between how Kanye treats Bianca and how he treated her when they were together. Kim believes that Kayne is changing Bianca to his ideal image of the perfect woman. 

Kayne West uses fashion to control women who he dates. He wants all of his romantic partners to be sex symbols. He accomplishes that goal by dressing them in revealing clothing that strips away their individuality  and value. Instead of letting Bianca or Kim wear clothing that they feel comfortable in, he makes them wear see-through tights that go from their toes all the way to their breasts, highlighting their feminine figure; showing their behind as well as their nipples. On the other hand, Kanye is wearing all baggy clothing from head to toe, the complete opposite of how he dresses his romantic partners. 

In some cases, Kanye also makes Biance wear a full ski mask in public, hiding her face while her whole body is being presented to everyone. Kayne is exploiting her body,and at the same time he is shaming her by hiding her face. 

Kanye West comes off as a fashion icon but in reality, he uses his profession as a way to control and dominate women.
