This ^^ is the kind of photo that actually makes me feel sorry for celebrities. How is that Kim Kardashian can manage cameras all up on her baby and if Alec Baldwin was in this position, he would be at DEFCON: Hate-Speech-Laced Rage Attack? Of course, Kim is “asking for it”. She survives because we like photos of baby North West. She also survives because we like to see whatever fashion monstrosity Kanye has made her wear. I’m pretty sure I have this coat, only mine isn’t so much a coat as it’s a really soft throw blanket from Target.
Anyway, as I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, Kim’s kat-face has barely taken a break since giving birth. Some of you even theorized that Kim get in for another nose job post-pregnancy, which… yeah, I could see that. I’ve always maintained that one of the reasons why Kim looks so weird and other-worldly (in a bad way) is because she’s compulsively lasered off all of her baby hairs on her hairline. Now the Daily Mail claims that Kanye West is trying to put his foot down about Kim’s plastic surgery, but the Mail goes off on a tangent about Kim’s electrolysis.
No Hollywood wedding would be complete without an extreme pre-nup in case of an unhappy ending. But while most pre-wedding contracts are drawn up to protect spouses in cases of wandering hands or financial misdemeanours, controlling Kanye West is said to have demanded a clause banning his wife-to-be from having any more surgery.
According to reports in this week’s Heat magazine the musician, whose mother died on the operating table, hit the roof when he saw messages between Kim and her surgeons discussing her next bout of body maintenance. And so the 36-yr-old demanded Kim refrain from ‘lipo, botox, another nose job.’
This will be a bitter pill to swallow for the 33-year-old reality star who has seemingly spent years perfecting her face. Fortunately one of the ways that Kim maintains her youthful looks doesn’t have anything to do with a doctor’s scalpel. Since she first hit the headlines in 2006 Kim’s face has changed dramatically and her rising hairline has been the source of constant speculation.
While some have hinted at a full hairline lift, a painful and expensive procedure that can leave scarring, most experts agree that Kim has used laser surgery on her forehead to remove hair and give her a new hairline. Surgeon Asim Shahmalak, hair loss expert on Channel 4 medical show Embarrassing Bodies, said that Kim Kardashian has almost certainly had the ‘baby hair’ from the front of her hairline removed.
He said this can be done temporarily by waxing or more permanently through laser removal.
Dr Shahmalak, from the Crown Clinic hair transplant centre in Manchester, agreed: ‘It is very likely that Kim Kardashian has had the baby hairs around hairline removed. This can be done by waxing – a similar procedure to how women remove hair from their legs or bikini line. But it is more likely that Kim has opted for laser surgery, a more permanent form of removal.’
He explained: ‘This kind of procedure around the hairline is much less common. Obviously some women – particularly celebrities – are very sensitive about their appearances and may feel hair growth in this area is a little unfeminine.’
There is no doubt in my mind that Kim has had electrolysis on most of her body – reportedly, she likes her body to be completely hairless. Now, I don’t consider electrolysis to be “plastic surgery” – there are no knives involved and you’re not changing the fundamentals of how you look. But can we agree that Kim’s laser hair removal is the least of Kanye’s potential worries? Lucifer’s Homegirl likes for all of her daughters to “recreate” themselves in her image. My biggest fear is that all of the Kardashian sisters are eventually going to go in for the “Full Kris Jenner” facelift and it’s going to be awful. But that’s just what Lucifer wants.
