How Kim Kardashian gave Pete Davidson the arm candy glow up

Pete Davidson has undergone quite the arm candy glow up ever since beginning his relationship with Kim Kardashian.

The transformation has been on full display in recent days, with Pete, 28, swapping his slobby stoner look for spray tans, designer suits, and even wearing sunglasses at night.

Fans could not help but take note of Pete’s glowing tan at the Met Gala earlier this week, and the comic revealed he had indeed gotten his very first spray tan during his set at Netflix Is A Joke this past weekend.

‘Want to know something really funny? This is the weirdest sentence I’ve ever said. I couldn’t put make up on for this because I got a spray tan,’ he said.

‘Which I think is the weirdest thing I’ve ever said, ever. I’ve never got a spray tan before, I asked my boy I was do I do my d**k and ass? Like I don’t know what I’m supposed to do.

‘Do I get like one of those like Borat f***ing speedos? I had no idea. My boy was like leave it white, more impressive that way.’

Pete certainly has been putting more effort into his looks in recent days.

While Pete hardly held a candle to Kim in her Marilyn Monroe dress at the Met Gala, there was no denying the newly-tanned comic was looking good.

Wearing black shades and a Dior suit, Pete was a far cry from the funky outfit he wore to the gala a year earlier and before his romance with Kim began.

Pete was also looking quite dapper at the White House Correspondents Dinner with Kim.

Once again wearing sunglasses on the red carpet, Pete was looking sharp in a Prada suit and Vans sneakers.

For someone who once revealed he considered Adam Sandler a ‘fashion icon’, it is certainly quite the upgrade.

‘I pretty much just took whatever Adam Sandler was wearing and have tried to do that, because he’s my favorite fashion icon,’ Pete told PopSugar in 2019.

‘If you look at any photo of Sandler on a set, or when he’s in his regular clothes, he’s just the coolest, most confident and comfortable person you’ll ever see. I’ve tried to adapt that type of style now.’

Pete is often seen wearing a funky mash-up of colorful sweatshirts, baseball caps, and sneakers. His preferred articles of clothing also include graphic T-shirts.

Pete compared his wacky fashion sense to his childhood wardrobe during a 2018 interview with GQ.

‘I dress how I dressed when I was like, 10,’ he told the site. ‘I’m like, “What would be cool? Purple pants.”‘

That same year Vanity Fair dubbed his style as ‘scrumbro lite’ in a round-up which also branded Jonah Hill and Shia LaBeouf as fellow scrumbros.

‘The scumbro wears Patagonia and Crocs but also the latest Adidas limited drop. He probably played soccer in high school, but left the team sophomore year because he was “busy,” and by busy he means skating,’ the article explained.

Interestingly, Kim’s style changed once she started dating her now ex-husband Kanye West, who heavily influenced her fashion choices at the time.

Pete’s style recently caught the attention of H&M who named him the newest face of their menswear campaign.

‘Pete encapsulates everything H&M loves about the new menswear mood, with his self-confidence and play with personal style. He is so relatable, inspiring guys around the world to create the moment with their look themselves,’ Henrik Nordvall, the Global Business Unit Director for Menswear at H&M said in a statement.
