She's yet to score approval points from Anna Wintour. But Kim Kardashian seems to be doing her damnedest to work her way into the upper echelons of high fashion, first with her own style and now a trip to Paris' elite Couture Week.

Kim walked hand-in-hand with boyfriend Kayne West to Stephane Rolland's runway show this week, followed by a jaunt to the Celine store. After a quick costume change, the pair reemerged in the front row at Givenchy, one of Kanye's favorite labels. All the while, she was clad in chic black and white (first a flowery mullet gown and then a elegant trouser-crop top ensemble) with her hair slicked back and relatively little makeup on her face.

Every day since Kim began dating Kanye, her new style has become clearer and clearer: muted colors, fewer outrageous fashion statements and relaxed, unfussy hair. The change, we imagine, has something to do with Kanye's aspiring fashion cred (this is the man, after all, who raps about Anja Rubik and wears women's Celine -- oh, and designs his own line).

To match Kanye's style savvy, Kim's had to up her game too. One of their first public appearances together, let's remember, was at a Chanel dinner during the Tribeca Film Festival. "What's Kim doing at a Chanel dinner?" we wondered back then. Little did we know she's be sitting front row at the best couture shows in Paris.

So with severe hair, black trousers and a good ticket in the front row, can Kim really be "high fashion"? Will she finally gain acceptance from Wintour and her coterie of fashion elite?
