Despite the messy allegations swirling about her best friend Jordyn Woods, Kylie Jenner still has a heck of a lot to celebrate! After all, when you have an adorable baby girl, a seemingly healthy relationship with a rap star, and are a few lip kits away from being the youngest self-made billionaire ever, there is always a little sunshine during the rain, right?
The Jenner news we're swooning over as of late is her bombshell cover and photo spread for PAPER Magazine. Jenner has gone platinum blonde plenty of times before, but she's turned up the heat several notches with these new editorial looks.
Stormi's mom is pulling off major blonde pixie cut slayage on the digital cover of PAPER Magazine's transformation issue.
This is the first time we've seen Jenner wear her hair this short. Immediately, Kris Jenner's occasional shots at the blonde pixie come to mind. She manages to channel her glam mom while looking incredibly fresh and fun.
The net, earrings, and even the dark brows paired with the platinum cut are all very vintage-inspired. Keep in mind, though, that this is 100% a wig and not an honest to God haircut.
Tons of her fans and Hollywood peers are ecstatic about the shoot.
Supermodels Winnie Harlow and Bella Hadid immediately gushed over the shoot in her comments section. Jenner also inspired Paris Hilton to drop her classic "that's hot" tagline underneath a photo! The fashion girls and America's most iconic carefree heiress agree: Jenner bodied these stills.
Kendall Jenner may not be the only one with supermodel potential in this family.
Naturally, there were a few critics.
Lots of people critiqued her hair and clothes, and honestly that's par for the course; fashion and beauty are subjective. However, a few fans made the interesting point that having someone from this family on a cover isn't the freshest move media can make.
"A Kardashian/Jenner? On the cover of Paper Magazine? Groundbreaking," one user shared.
It's a valid critique.
"People think I fully went under the knife and completely reconstructed my face, which is completely false," she shared in the interview.
"I'm terrified! I would never. They don't understand what good hair and makeup and, like, fillers, can really do."
And there you have it! Jenner is once again open about getting fillers but stresses that she has not laid on anyone's table to get anything permanent done to her face. Do with that information what you will, skeptics!
For the record, this isn't Kylie Jenner's first PAPER cover. It's her second!
She first covered PAPER in 2016, and the shoot featured bold colors for her wigs, makeup, and clothing. With her ever-changing hairstyles, lip editing methods, and her former shyness about filler talk — Jenner was growing up and figuring out how she wanted to express herself right along with her fans.
At the time, Jenner was still on a journey to fully understand how to turn her influence into an empire that stands apart from the initial Kardashian brand. The theme of the cover and interview was all about how she used her massive social media platform and obsession with lipstick to create a thriving business for herself.
Now that Kylie Jenner is headed towards a billionaire's tax bracket, has succeeded at making Kylie Cosmetics a powerful force in the beauty industry, and is now a mother of a 1-year-old baby — having her cover the transformation issue does make sense.
So much about her actually has transformed since 2016, and this old Hollywood style shoot full of edgier hair and clothing definitely nails where she is right now. She's much more mature and comfortable talking about what she does and does not have figured out. Jenner also seems pretty secure with what she actually shares with the world and when she shares it.
However redundant, this Jenner cover was executed well. Go ahead and prepare yourselves for more blonde pixies to pop out this spring and summer.
After all, that's the KarJenner effect, right?
