Khloé Kardashian is undoubtedly one of the most famous names; her entire family has created a massive brand. However, she had the most challenging time with the media while entering the spotlight and was always judged on her appearance. From her weight to her facial features, Khloé had to overcome a lot of pressure. So, if we travel back in time, we can see how her style has changed and how she presents herself to the world.
Khloé has struggled a lot with body image.
The reality star has said, “In truth, the pressure, constant ridicule, and judgment my entire life to be perfect and meet other’s standards of how I should look has been too much to bear. ‘Khloé is the fat sister. Khloé is the ugly sister. Her dad must not be her real dad because she looks so different. The only way she could have lost that weight must have been from surgery.’”
And while people who live and work in the spotlight will naturally get people’s attention, it’s unfair to constantly judge them for who they choose to be. As the star has said, she only asks to be acknowledged as a normal human being.
She also battles anxiety.
Being in front of a camera and thousands of people all the time can be all-consuming. And Khloé seems to have terrible anxiety going to public events, like TV interviews. “I have to do James Corden. I just have such anxiety about going. It’s never the interview. It’s more the aftermath. I have to listen to everybody say this, or judge you, or overanalyze something you say, or pick this apart.”
She also believes that while social media used to be fun in the past, in recent years, it can really make your mental health spiral. People will judge her every photo and accuse her of retouching, even if she’s barely touched a photo. Her mom Kris has said, “I think anytime that you’re in the public eye, it just opens you up for scrutiny and criticism about every little thing. And I think with Khloé, she does internalize that, and I think you really have to have tough, thick skin, which all of us have, but every once in a while, our emotions just get the best of us.”
She never had confidence issues before the reality show aired.
“Interestingly enough, I was so confident and secure before the show.” The self-esteem issues started after the show began airing, and viewers and critics started calling her the “fat and ugly sister’.” “That’s when I became hard on myself because I was like, ‘Oh, this is how other people perceive me.’ I became insecure because of everyone else telling me.”
She has no problem admitting her love for Facetune and editing her photos to make her look perfect. “Facetune is the best thing to bring to the table. It’s life-changing. It’s not real. You are presenting to the world what you want them to believe you are. It’s amazing. I think our society nowadays is so caught up on getting validation from social media that no one really knows, so they post these things.”
She’s open about the plastic surgery she’s done.
While people speculate much when asked, Khloé admits she has had one nose job. “For me, everyone says, ’Oh my gosh, she’s had her third face transplant,’ but I’ve had one nose job.” When asked about Botox, she said she’d tried it but has responded horribly. And while many people accuse her of losing weight through medical procedures, she says she has worked hard to achieve this result.
“I find it disgusting, but maybe a compliment that I’m being accused of getting liposuction done. I work out 5 days a week.” And since she’s inserted exercising into her life, it looks like she’s fallen in love with it, not wanting to ever stop.
