InStyle magazine shows the current state of the all three sisters' closets. But Kim's closets have been tracked steadily over the years. In 2008, Celebuzz website toured Kim's closet, which at the time leaned toward basic white melamine.
Now Kim's storage solutions are more refined. A velvet-lined jewelry drawer organizer that suits her perference for big and chunky earrings, bracelets and necklaces is done in a walnut finish. An island in Kim's walk-in features drawers "for stowing, tanks, thongs and workout clothes," InStyle helpfully reports. Kim also tells the magazine for overhead lighting, "I wanted a chandelier chandlier that wasn't too girlie." She selected a deco-style fixture to anchor the space..

One caveat: these hangers, made of 55% ABS plastic/30% nylon fiber/15% iron, cannot be used with wet or damp clothing. (Water and iron don't mix well.)
Closets for sisters Khloe and and Kourtney also get star treatment fitting for the Keeping Up with the Kardashians TV show trio. Khloe has lots of white-melamine shelving for shoes, loaded with signature leopard-print heels. Kourtney uses a wooden hand for jewelry storage, and follows Kim's advice hanging denim jeans on Real Simple Slimline hangars. See the rest of the Kardashian Closet Confidential story at InStyle.com
