Transformation Tuesday: Kylie Jenner

Transformation Tuesday: Kylie Jenner

Going through puberty is enough of a nightmare as it is, so, imagine how more mortifying it would be having to do it in front of millions of people…on TV.  Kylie Jenner, the youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan had to do just that with big sister Kendall, after becoming household names due to their family’s reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Aged just 19 Kylie has managed to emerge from the shadows of her older sisters and has forged out a career of her own as a makeup entrepreneur. But, no one can ignore the transformation of not only her fashion sense but also her face and body – whilst the jury  still out on whether or not she has gone under the knife to achieve her curvy figure we’re all for her improved look which has allowed her to begin building a business empire featuring her cosmetics line, mobile app and upcoming spin off reality show, Life of Kylie. We take a look back at Kylie’s transformation from tween to teen idol…

 

2008

I never have, and never will understand the appeal of Uggs and will just put it down to personal taste (or lack of…). But, to wear it on the red carpet?! In Kylie’s defence she was about 11 year old here so can’t be blamed for his faux pas. Instead the blame lies squarely with her mother Kris – Kris, this is your fault…

2009

It’s a year later and Kylie is back at the same event, the KIIS-FM Wango Tango concert in California. There’s definitely some improvement style-wise. She’s still only a tween here so she’s absolutely allowed to make as many mistakes as she likes until she stumbles across a ‘look’ that works for her…

2009

We’re starting to see signs of a glamour puss emerging her. Jenner attended Selena Gomez’ album launch in a strapless, floral mini dress with caged platform heels – she’s not even a  teenager yet but clearly not shy to glam up for special occasions…

2010

Proving that she can dress down as well as up, Jenner, opted for her version of a skater/rocker look when she attended the Rob Dyrdek Foundation’s ‘Sk8 For Life’ benefit back in 2010…

2011

It’s hard to believe that she’s only 14 in this picture!  Jenner looks like a young woman in her early 20’s here. The leopard print jumpsuit, oversized Saint Laurent bag and platformed court shoes add years to her and makes us wonder if she’s been raiding her mother’s wardrobe…

2013

And…it begins. Let it not be said that Kylie’s transformation was na overnight one. She’ll be slowly sexing up her image since her early teens – sounds awful doesn’t it when you say it like that. Here she is at Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards…

2014

It was Kylie’s blue tipped bob at the American Music Awards that made the rest of the world finally take notice of the youngest member of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.  This was the point when Kim was pushed to the sidelines and everyone wanted to know about Kylie…

2015

Kim who?  Kylie wore Balmain to the Billboard Music Awards and started tongues wagging about her new curves –  which she put down to eating more…ok….

2017

Having grown up in the public eye – through no choice of her own – 19-year-old Kylie has made the most of the situation and say what you like about her she certainly isn’t afraid to court attention to stay in the press.  Here she is at Marie Claire Image Maker Awards in Los Angeles earlier this year.
