Most of Kim Kardashian West’s iconic looks come from her friendship with fellow American socialite Paris Hilton, their friendship in the early 2000s was widely publicised and helped Kim gain popularity.

The iconic duo in the 2000s were often seen wearing matching velour tracksuits with monogrammed designer bags out and about in LA, or on Paris Hilton’s global press trips.

The pair defined the era, and this past week they reunited for a SKIMS shoot, the internet was flooded when the pair brought their 2000s aesthetic back to life and the #ThatShot phase trended once again.

Kim Kardashian-West’s latest business venture, SKIMS, first launching in 2019 is known for its shapewear, and the launch of this new velour collections brings us all back to the early 2000s.

Posing inside a garage in SKIMS velour tracksuits styled with enormous sunglasses and retro phones, the paparazzi aesthetic photographs paid homage to their upbringing in the spotlight.

From arriving at the annual Met Gala as her husband, Kanye West’s plus one to then attending as Vogue’s cover star, Kim Kardashian for the last seven years has served some memorable looks from the most covered fashion events.

From her first Met Gala in 2013 wearing Riccardo Tisci’s Givenchy for the “Punk: Chaos to Couture” theme to her dripping wet latex look by Thierry Mugler for the 2019 “Camp, Notes to Fashion” theme, her outfits through the years cannot be forgotten,
