Kylie Jenner Poses for ComplexCon October/November 2016 Cover!
When I began watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which is now in its 12th season, I wondered what the lives of the youngest sisters would be like. Kendall and Kylie Jenner, now mega stars, in their own right. In the last couple of years, however, Kylie has grown up, not only embraced the fame but is now regarded by some as the most famous Kardashian. (sorry Kim). Due to her massive social media following, which increased by millions since the press date for her new Complex cover story. (Currently, she has 76.4 million followers on Instagram and 18.2 million followers on Twitter.)
In her new Complex cover story, she poses topless and in Atsuko Kudo Latex in a very high fashion artistic shoot. I remember a 2014 episode of KUWTK when Kylie was shooting for Teen Vogue and was hesitant to really take it there. Well, I must say the reality star turned cosmetic mogul has come a long way. What began as a media frenzy about her lip injections has turned into a platform to sell everything cosmetic. Her lip-kits sell out in minutes, she also has a mobile game with her sister Kendall. A clothing line with TopShop and she is the face of Puma. She’s posed for the pages of Vogue, Elle, and Paper magazine just to name a few. She’s only 19 years old!
In the story, written by Karizza Sanchez Kylie talks about her complex relationship with fame. Something she talks about on the latest season of her reality show as well. She’s been on the show since age 9 and she wonders what it would be like to have a normal life. No surprise to me, she deals with daily anxiety, with help from her mother. Her, as well as her famous siblings, are in this weird position where their fame drives their highly lucrative businesses. So can anyone of them, including Kylie afford to step away from the spotlight? The article ends with Kylie asking, “Is [not being famous] even possible?”
I'm very excited to reveal SMILE, a beautiful pale pink shade that I created in partnership with @smiletrain for #WorldSmileDay 100% of net proceeds will go towards cleft surgery for children in the developing world and I will be presenting a check to them personally. Let's do this 💗 October 3rd at 11am pst. @kyliecosmetics
Big sister Khloe also chimes in about how Kylie as a child. She lamented that no one can really sway Kylie or stop her from doing what she wants to do. I imagine her to be a strong-willed Leo, raised among other strong women. She did not break up with her boyfriend of two years, Tyga when the public criticized their age difference. When rumors first began to fly about their relationship she was 17 and he was 25. She smartly waited till she was 18 to officially announce it, and it is still awkward to watch them together on the show. And even more so, Tyga’s ex Blac Chyna is engaged and expecting a child with Kylie’s brother Rob.
I admire Kylie’s confidence and strength and she looks BOMB in this new photo shoot. Her family’s longtime friend and stylist, Monica Rose picked looks, her makeup artist, Ariel Tejada was on board as well as hair stylist Clyde Haygood. The photos were taken by Sasha Samsonova who has worked with Jenner before. The artwork provided by,Takashi Munakami. Check out the photos below:
