Photographers caught Kim and her husband leaving a New York hotel on Wednesday, November 6, as they went to the New York Times DealBook Conference, where she was set to speak along on business issues with her momager Kris Jenner.
As RadarOnline.com readers know, fashionista Kanye has been trying to control Kim's wardrobe choices amid his religious fervor.
The rapper, who runs his own traveling Christian church and has released the hit album Jesus Is King, now wants his wife to sport a more demure look, a source said.
“He used to be all about showing off Kim’s sex appeal, but he’s turned conservative all of a sudden and he now visibly cringes when he sees her leave the house showing too much skin,” the insider told Radar.
Kim, 39, and the mother of four, became famous for flaunting her curves in sexy outfits and wearing big expensive jewelry!
But now Kanye “tries to rein her in as if she’s a teenage girl, demanding that she ‘can’t go out looking like that,’” added the source.
As Radar previously reported, Kanye slammed Kim’s gown choice at the Met Gala in May, leaving the shocked reality star stunned and infuriated with her rapper-turned-devout-Christian husband.
A clip from a recent Keeping Up with The Kardashians episode showed the reality star getting fitted for her infamous Met Gala 2019 “wet dress” when her husband walked in to check it out.
Kanye raged to Kim, “Like the corset, underwear, all that vibe, I just feel like I just went through this transition of being rapper, and lookin’ at all these girls and looking at my wife like ‘Oh, my girl needs to be just like all the other girls, showing her body off’… I didn’t realize that that was affecting like my soul and my spirit as someone that’s married and loved…."
But Kim pointed out to her husband, who has been running a popular Sunday church service, “You built me up to be a sexy person and have confidence! Just because you’re on a journey and you’re in a transformation doesn’t mean I’m in the same spot with you.”
After the KUWTK queen began once again flaunting her bling on social media West, 42, had a major meltdown over it, a source told Radar.
After going through her October 2016 Paris jewelry robbery ordeal, in which she was bound and gagged in her hotel suite, Kim cut down on the amount of jewelry she wore in public and was usually spotted with a thin wedding band instead of an engagement ring.
But she's appeared adorned in necklaces in recent Instagram posts, bothering her spouse.
Now, however, it appears that Kim is listening to her husband by covering up head to toe in a minimalist look.

Modest For Kim
The reality star shocked onlookers by appearing in a long black turtleneck dress outside her hotel. Kanye accompanied her to New York for a business conference.
Although Kim's gown was still form-fitting and showed off her famous curves, she displayed very little skin and was necklace-free. Kanye, wearing a blue hoody outift, hung on tight.
Beauty mogul Kim and her mom Kris joined such big names as Bill Gates, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Hillary Rodham Clinton in giving talks at the New York Times DealBook Conference. The KUWTK stars discussed the growing role of social media influencers in the media and fashion businesses.
Tone It Down
A source previously told Radar, "Kanye’s freaking out and ordering Kim to stow away all her jewelry in safe deposit boxes but she thinks he’s overreacting. She’s told friends their home security system is amazing and there’s nothing to worry about.” Still, she was relatively jewelry-free on their New York trip, sporting just some big earrings.
Kim just launched a new apparel brand, Skims, featuring shape-enhancing undergarments. And her all black bodysuit showed she still looks like an hourglass!
Kanye has told Kim “to cover up more going forward and has informed her that she has to run her wardrobe choices past him before going out in public,” the source told Radar.
The rap singer who has his own Yeezy fashion line has “even begun throwing out some of Kim's more revealing outfits,” the source said.
It remains to be seen if Kim will stick with her new minimalist style. The insider has said of her relationship with her religious husband, “Kim feels like he’s trying to hide her away like a dowdy housewife, and she won’t stand for it for long.”
