Kim 'influenced by Kendall'

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian is said to have had an image overhaul after being inspired by sister Kendall Jenner's success in the fashion world.

The reality TV star has been flaunting her curves in a number of revealing outfits recently, with low slashed necklines and midriff baring tops.

Those close to Kim, 33, believe it's half sister Kendall's success in the modelling industry that has spurned Kim on to change her look up.

"Kendall's getting almost as many column inches as Kim, so Kim's starting to sit up and take notice. She's long been a champion of her kid sister while she was trying to get into the competitive high fashion world," a source revealed to British magazine Now.

"But now Kendall's making a dent in the industry, it's got Kim thinking. She's going for a total overhaul of her image and career. She can't rest on her laurels and doesn't want to be known as just Kanye's other half."

Kendall, 18, made a splash in the fashion world during February's Fashion Week shows, where she walked for Marc Jacobs, Giles Deacon and Givenchy.

She's since gone on to land a campaign with Givenchy, the fashion house helmed by Kim's close friend, and wedding dress designer, Riccardo Tisci.

Kendall's sudden success is also said to have fuelled Kim's desire to make music, something she tried her hand at in 2011 to less-than-rave reviews.

"That's one of the reasons she's taking baby steps to get back into music. This time around she's more confident as she Kanye in her camp," the source added.
