It’s a new era for the Kardashians and their many, many magazine spreads.
Kim posed with minimal makeup for Vogue Australia in May, and now sister Khloe has hopped on board by way of a stunning, totally toned-down shoot in July’s Harper’s Bazaar.
The 31-year-old spoke openly with the glossy about life in the public eye, what she “dislikes most about being a Kardashian” (“The judgment on us,” she said), and a heartbreaking truth about why she thinks she has emerged as a fashion force as of late.
“I definitely think the fashion industry, and people in general, look at me more now that I’ve lost weight. Even on shoots, I would never have options for clothing. There would always be this attention on Kourtney and Kim, but I was too much work for [stylists] or they had nothing in my size. I wasn’t even that crazy big!” she said.
Kardashian has long credited her style to Monica Rose, who has worked with the family over the years and, according to Kardashian, always made her “feel special,” regardless of her size. “Other people actually said, ‘I just can’t work with you,’ because I was too big. That always hurt my feelings, of course.”
But as any devoted Khloe fan kan tell you, the media mogul was famous for her unfiltered approach long before she was famous for her skintight ensembles. When asked about those stylists who now want to dress her 40 pounds later, “I’m just like, ‘Fuck you,'” she said. “‘I’m not going to reward your bad behavior.'”
So, basically, she’s the iconic shopping scene from “Pretty Woman,” and we salute her for it.
Head to Harper’s Bazaar to see the rest of the gorgeous shoot.
"Other people actually said, 'I just can't work with you'because I was too big. That always hurt my feelings, of course."
