Khloe Kardashian shows off some more angles of her terrible nose job

Prince Harry greets the crowds outside Windsor Castle on the evening before his wedding to Meghan Markle

Something that drives me absolutely bonkers about the Kardashian-Jenner clan is how so many of them go under the knife and they just end up looking like a younger, most plastic version of their mother. Kendall Jenner never blew me away with her natural look, but then she started Botoxing and getting lip injections and now she just looks like a “Young Kris.” Kylie Jenner has messed with her face so much that she resembles a cartoon version of Kris as well. Kim looks more like her mother every year, and Kim ‘toxes on the reg too.

But the worst case of Kris-itis is now Khloe Kardashian. About a month ago, people began pointing out that Khloe had gotten a very weird nose job, and it looked like really botched work. It’s like a cross between Michael Jackson and Kris Jenner, and I’m convinced that Kris’s current nose is the product of the same kind of botched plastic surgery too. They all go in wanting some tiny, upturned nose and they come out looking SO different and WORSE.

Anyway, Khloe has been posting Instagrams over the past few days and we’re seeing some new angles on this nose job. It’s still horrible no matter how she angles her face. Weirdly, I think her Nu Nose looks the worst head-on, where you can tell that they somehow made her nostrils smaller. Everything looks out of proportion now. Like Picasso was her plastic surgeon.

    I think it looks good.

    • manda says:

      Yeah me too. It looks like a nose job nose, but probably more because we all know what it used to look like

    • escondista says:

      Sort of related: I spent my entire pregnancy hoping my daughter would look like her dad’s side because they’re like all southern, tall, beauty pageant winner-looking people; all.of.them. I thought that was the sort of beauty I would want to bestow upon my daughter, heck, i thought it was the sort of beauty that would make me happier (I think a lot of first-time moms wonder a lot about their kid’s looks).
      Well, she is three now and looks just like me and my mom and my grandma. My mom passed away last year and I get SO VERY HAPPY when i look at her and I see us. It’s like those people that i loved so much aren’t gone at all from my life at all…they are with me and my daughter. I hope when I am gone, she looks in the mirror and smiles because she sees me there too. That’s beauty.
      I feel bad for True because the only way she will see her mom or have some connection to the Kardashians is if she lets a surgeon cut away and fill her face and body. And this goes on and on with this family. At some point I hope one of the kids loves the very honest connection that they receive from their ancestry rather than having a bland Hollywood doll face to fret about as they get older and lose the ones that they love.

      • Original Jenns says:

        I have always wondered about what I would look like getting a nose job (slimmer, less ski-jump). The way I’ve made peace with it, and actually am happy with all of my facial features now is linking them to my family. I think I’m a cross of my grandmothers, and with them both gone, I truly treasure the genetics I share with them. Thank you for your post!

      • Lflips says:


        your wisdom and insight are beautiful; thank you for leaving a message I desperately needed to see.

      • Ash says:

        Escondista – Ditto on all you said. I wondered my entire pregnancy what my son would look like and due to circumstances and being a single mother in all regards, I hoped my son would look like me/my family for many reasons. I love your sentiments and if we could all view ourselves in that light and perspective, I wholeheartedly think we would be much happier with our looks and genuinely feel more proud and beautiful when it comes to our outside appearance as a whole. Thank you for sharing, I will carry your statement with me.
        I agree about True and the rest of the Kardash-Jenner’s offspring…I also feel it is doing them a disservice, especially the girls because they will feel that in order to find beauty in their looks, they will have to have plastic surgery to feel that beauty and will never achieve or find it living in their own skin. (I TRULY hope that we’re wrong and they do but something tells me their upbringing won’t allow them that opportunity.) On a side note, I can’t imagine having a daughter and her asking me one day why we don’t look alike in any regard because let’s face it, by the time the kids are old enough their mothers will be a shell of their former selves besides maybe Kendall and Kourtney.
        I know as I became a teenager, I also became more interested in my genetics and who I looked more alike in my family and did feel a sense of pride even then when told who I look (and still do) like.

      • Angry Bird says:

        This spoke to my heart. I had not considered this.

    • Shazze says:

      me too

    • DiegoInSF says:

      I think so too. Her original nose was not pretty.

      • FoundCat says:

        I had a Captain Hook from Disney nose then broke it 3x bein sporty and or goofy. At 40 I got it fixed, tho it looks better, the issue is addiction – to both post op drugs and the “could be improved” impulse. Surgery is empty & creates a cycle of unnecessary dissatisfaction.

    • tealily says:

      It looks good, but ENTIRELY different.

    • Mash says:

      you can have good work on a IMPROPER face….as in yea on someone else that nose would be fire…on khloe its look HIDEOUS

    • weezle says:

      So do I…but most importantly, I hope she loves it.

  2. Kaye says:

    She is completely unrecognizable.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Jenny McCarthy + Busy Phillips= Nu Nose Khloe.

    • Fubar says:

      That was my first thougt. She doesn’t look like herself any longer.

    • Arizona says:

      She doesn’t really look like herself, but what I think is funny is that her and Malika have the same nose now. They must all go to the same exact surgeon.

      • ByTheSea says:

        That’s what I noticed, too, that they have the same nose now. And that Khloe kinda looks like Beyonce in that bottom pic.

    • Lady2Lazy says:

      I know. Every time I see Khloe, I have to do a double take. She doesn’t look like herself anymore, which is sad. I understand wanting change something about yourself that you don’t like and I respect people to make their own decisions. I truly want her to be happy, she deserves it but I still can’t get past the dramatic difference.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Didn’t Khloe talk about being 7 years old and being told by her mom that she was definitely going to need a nose job one day? Such a toxic family.

      I had to look at the header photo for a while to figure out who it was. 100% looks like a different person.

  3. Ninks says:

    Gun to my head, if the only way to save my life was to identify the women in those pictures, I wouldn’t have guessed it was Khloe.

  4. grabbyhands says:

    Jesus, learn to love yourself.

    How did looking like a family of blow up sex dolls become the prime goal in their lives?

  5. Louise says:

    That’s weird because when you see “normal” pictures of klobacha she’s her normal ugly self. These are photoshopped images of what she wants to be.

    • styla says:

      I agree. These are highly edited images. Gorgeous images, and Khloe is pretty in real life too, but there’s a bit of alter universe going on here.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      yeah, this is a point I make every time I see her insta pics, or any pic that SHE posts.

      any candid, paparazzi or pic on someone ELSE’s insta (like a K sister), you see what she REALLY looks like.

      and it’s always a significant difference.

    • Original Jenns says:

      The Klobacha comment is exactly why some women torture themselves into plastic figurines. That’s gross.

    • Jaded says:

      “Normal ugly self”? What a horrible thing to say. It’s people like you who contribute to women’s insecurity about themselves.

    • Jenny says:

      Louise, I wonder how much the millions of critical comments Khloe has been exposed to have negatively impacted her self esteem, ie ”Khlobaca.” I doubt you would be able to take what you dish out.

  6. Veronica S says:

    Really, all extensive surgery does at the end of the day is destroy any unique character to your face – and the nose is usually the worst culprit because that’s often the central feature and the most noticeable. I can count on one hand the number of people I’ve met who I think could actually benefit from a drastic nose job, so that should tell you how ridiculous the new tiny nose trend is.

    • Eliza says:

      So many in Hollywood has had a nose job. Especially the women, just a little tweek to thin it, and slim nostrils. It’s like theres a package deal to get nosejob and headshots together for a promo package.

      But this is terrible work. The nose itself isn’t bad but it’s too small for the face. Doesn’t line up with the ears, too much space between lip now too.

      So many young girls hate what makes them unique and when “everyone” is doing work it normalizes it when most don’t need it. (Not shaming those who get it, but many grow up to embrace what they’d change when they’re young – i did). I remember being young and wanting to look like celebrities, but i feel like back then they at least were somewhat unique. Now they all look like the same over-contoured over fat injected Kardashian clone. As if you don’t look like this, or have the deformed hip (that again is out of proportion) you’re less than. Makes me sad. I hope there’s a pendulum to swing in a more natural direction soon!

  7. bored at work says:

    Doesn’t look out of proportion to me. But I also wouldn’t have recognized her in these pics…

  8. Jen says:

    Has no one learned from the cautionary tale of Jennifer Grey??!!

    • Esmom says:

      Yes, it is still strange to me how different she looks. But it’s not like they have serious acting careers to self-sabotage like Grey did.

    • Susan says:

      Sadly, those days are long past. If Jennifer had gotten that same nose job today, it would be a blip on the radar. Botching yourself with plastic surgery has become completely acceptable these days.

  9. GR says:

    IMO the Jenndashians are some of the most horrifying celebrities in existence. They seem to have no talents, skills, or inner lives, and they become richer by feeding on, and worsening, the insecurities of other girls and women.

    • Taste says:

      The second part of your post is true, about their feeding on insecurity, but it seems bizarre to say they have no talents or skills. They started off with LA-comfortable money, and are now seriously, seriously wealthy. Plenty of pretty girls with big butts out there who could make a sex tape and not end up multi-multi-millionaires. Self-promotion to this extent is a skill and a talent.

      It’s like with Madonna – I don’t respect her choices in any way, but you can’t pretend it wouldn’t take serious serious hustle to do what they’ve done.

      • Kitten says:

        Madonna didn’t come from wealth nor did she have a famous last name or connections like these women. I don’t see how you can assess their careers in an honest way if you overlook the importance of the inherent benefits that comes with their level of access to famous and monied people-a benefit that they’ve enjoyed literally since birth.

      • FHMom says:

        Apples and Oranges. Madonna is self made. She is talented, ambitious and smart. She dances, sings, writes, acts, etc. She came to NY as a nobody. These Jenner/kardashians were born with privilege and connections. There is no comparison.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Taste, you forget they are Paris Hilton 2.0. Reality TV is built off of the desire to see rich people be indulgent. They were wealthy, and had the sex tape, and were in tabloid social circles. I don’t think that takes skill, but they fit the mold that needed to be filled at the right time.

  10. Jane says:

    I spit out my coffee when I read, “Like Picasso was her plastic surgeon.”. NAILED IT!

  11. Phonycat says:

    If your father is not a Kardashian, you too can look like one with enough plastic surgery

    • olive says:

      nah, those are Houghton looks from Kris’ family that everyone’s been going for, not Kardashian looks from Robert’s. Kim HAD a long Kardashian nose like her dad but she chopped it off to look like her mom’s tiny nose. look up Kris’ mom MJ, she has a small nose too.

  12. Duchess of Hazard says:

    She should have gone to South Korea for plastic surgery, they do it right.

    • Esmom says:

      I remember reading an article in the New Yorker about the culture of plastic surgery in South Korea. I had no idea. It’s bonkers. And sad, imo.

      • Taste says:

        It’s really racist and disgusting – I have Korean friends from wealthier families who were told at 17 or so by their parents that all the “whitening” surgeries – eyelids, etc – were basically something they were expected to get. For a lot of young men and woman it’s barely treated as a choice. Very, very sad.

      • Alexandria says:

        Yes and plastic surgery is a must to get you ahead both in school and at work. There was this plus size model who underwent heavy depression growing up. Her parents kept blaming each other for her supposed fatness. And her lover did not hold her hands in public. Men even told her to her face that their day was spoiled because they saw a fat person. I cannot imagine!!! Ridiculous. I do not want to live there.

        As for Khloe, her images are very heavily retouched so I can’t even tell anymore.

      • KL says:

        @Taste I agree the plastic surgery culture is out of control, but it’s worth noting that a lot of actual Koreans get (rightfully) angry when people equate pale makeup trends or double eyelid surgery as wanting to be “whiter.” Double eyelids are a natural genetic trait among East Asians, just rarer, and ditto very fair skin. It’s arguably a very classist(/colorist) idea of beauty, but saying they want to be white effectively ignores thousands of years of Korean cultural standards for an Eurocentric perspective on racial stereotypes.

      • Lady D says:

        I in no way intend to minimize the model’s pain, but I would laugh really hard if some guy told me his day was ruined because he had to look at me. I mean really hard.

  13. ChillyWilly says:

    It’s just contouring, y’all! I had a friend who had a nose job and it looked so good. Her new nose was still in proportion to her face. And that was in Ohio in the 90’s. These women have access to the best so I don’t think it was botched, I think Khloe has body dismorphia and asked for this look. It’s sad because she looked cute before. She also looks sickly thin to me. She is not built to be this skinny and is probably doing something unhealthy to get her weight this low.

    • Harryg says:

      It’s the LA nose. They always make that tiny button-nose. She looks like Lindsay Lohan and Janet Jackson put together, then airbrushed and bleached. This makes me think that British TV show She-Devil where a tall brunette woman becomes a tiny blond woman.

  14. My3cents says:

    “Picasso was her plastic surgeon ” Gold Kaiser!
    I’ll second you by adding that Jeff Koons was Kylie’s artistic inspiration.

  15. Ash says:

    It really isn’t that bad. On its own it is a very well done nose. Just is a tad small for her actual face.

  16. Shelby says:

    How did she get a nose job without the public knowing? It takes time to heal a nose job and she is always in the spotlight or posting selfies.

  17. A says:

    The lips and extreme photoshop are making her more unrecognizable than the nose.

  18. Mar says:

    Wow she looks like a completely different person. Crazy

  19. ME says:

    I just think this family photoshops their pics to death. In real life, I think she probably still has her original nose.

  20. Skeptical says:

    She looks fine to me. If we keep making news stories out of a woman’s nose(s) can we really be surprised when she decides to change it?

  21. Adrianna says:

    It’s a little too small for her face. She’s getting that generic look.

  22. Angel says:

    To me, it looks like she’s trying to morph into the beautiful woman that she’s sitting beside in that picture: nose, lips, and eyebrows. Will an eye job be next?

  23. Liz says:

    If you look at the pics from the pre-fame teenage years, Khloe was the hot one right out of the gate. The two older sisters just seemed forgettable and spoiled.
    You can also see that competitive angle between Kim and Khloe throughout the early show.
    Kim and Kris are bullies and successfully destroyed the self esteem of Khloe, all for money.
    And Khloe let it happen.

    This family…

    • olive says:

      i think khloe was the hot one in that she seemed more FUN than the older two sisters and more “real,” but i don’t think on looks alone she was the hot one. kim especially used to be beautiful before she started messing with her nose.

  24. Lynne says:

    Noses that have been hacked like hers look smaller in real life. Kim Kardashian’s is really small seeing her in person. Khloe’s new nose is not proportional to her face. I’d be curious how it looks in rl 3D. My bet is not good.
    This is a reason why Hollywood gets a lot bad press for plastic surgery. It’s done for 2D film and photos but people don’t look good in rl.
    Small noses, big eyes and smiles.

  25. Sarah says:

    Lips should not protrude past your nose. It’s just not good work by many plastic surgeons these days. All of these women’s symmetry is destroyed.

  26. Ann says:

    My older brother had just a tiny bit of PTSD when he came home from Iraq in 2005. He told me he was having reoccurring dreams where everyone looked like ventriloquist dummies. I personally love KUWTK and I like the Kardashian-Jenners in general, but when he told me about his dreams I realized that it’s a matter of health for him to avoid this family. They’re mouths move so weird from all the botox and lip fillers. Add in the tiny noses now. He’d never sleep again if he bothered to scroll through Khloe’s instagram.

  27. Kim says:

    the plastic culture comes in waves like every other trend. the cult known as social media definitely has kept this one going and the tide is high.

  28. megs283 says:

    Remember when we thought Khloe was the “normal” one?

  29. NYGal says:

    It looks good in the photoshopped pics.but candids or the radio show pics it’s the true indication of the new nose and that it is really bad. All her stuff she puts up is so filtered it shocking in contrast to any true candid shots. That’s why I always wonder how much is surgery and how much is photoshopped.

  30. Moon says:

    She looks like Wendy Williams.

  31. Yes Doubtful says:

    She looks like a different person, but from those photos, it doesn’t look bad. It’s the huge lips and fake rear that doesn’t work for her.

  32. CuriousCole says:

    Wait, who is that in the first/header photo?? It looks like a blonde Kim! Are they all morphing into Kim?? That would freak me out if I were her.

  33. PurpleHoulihan says:

    A lot of her plastic surgery obsession seemed to escalate when people started speculating that OJ Simpson is her biological father and he talked to the press about it. A lot of people commented on how broad her nose was and used that to compare her features to him. Ever since then, it’s like she’s been systematically trying to make herself look more and more like Kris.

  34. 2lazy4username says:

    Maybe an unpopluar opinoin, but I see nothing wrong with getting li’l tweaks here and there to boost confidence. However, if you don’t love yourself, no tweak in the world will ever be enough. And *that* is what is sad.

    • jennifer says:

      If you love yourself, you accept who you are and how you look. Tweaking stems from self-hatred and not accepting who you are.

  35. KidV says:

    I don’t think she had a “botched” nose job, just one that doesn’t fit her face. She’s always had a short nose, too short for her face, so anything she did to it would look kind of odd. She could have just thinned the bridge and that would have been fine. The upturn she did makes her nose look even shorter. I do think she looks better, at least in these photos.

  36. Jana says:

    She looks more like Kendall and less like whoever her father is…

  37. Colleen lackey says:

    It dosent matter who dislikes should only matter to kloe .its her nose.leave her alone…..

  38. Jessie says:

    I haven’t seen it not photoshopped, but i think it looks really good. and so much better than her attempts at contouring before. I hope shes happy with it too.
