Khloe Kardashian’s face is so tragic these days but she’s really proud of it

Hydrated and Healthy!

A post shared by Khloé (@khloekardashian) on

This was not a good (hot girl) summer for gossip. I mean, we had Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes and we had a lot of royal drama and a lot of Taylor Swift drama, and that was about it. But let’s not forget about this too: Khloe Kardashian gave us periodic updates on her botched AF nose job. Khloe got a new nose job at some point in the spring – people first noticed it in May, through a grainy video where Khloe’s profile suddenly looked so much like Kris Jenner’s equally botched nose job. Throughout the summer months, Khloe would occasionally post new photos to social media, giving us new angles on her nose job.

So Khloe wants to continue the trend, I guess. For what it’s worth, she still hasn’t admitted that she went under the knife and actually paid someone to do this to her face. We’re probably supposed to believe this is all just “contouring” and clever makeup tricks and whatever Instagram airbrushing/Facetune-ing bulls–t is out there. While all of that is definitely in play – she frankly looks like a cartoon – let me just say that she’s doing all of that to mask the fact that she got a “breakup nose job” and she went too far. Maybe she knows it now.

Mostly, Khloe’s face just makes me so sad. I get that every woman has agency and no one is forcing her to do this sh-t with her nose and lips and all of that. But it’s still sad that with all that money, she actually CHOOSES to look like this.

    She’d look better if she didn’t inflate her lips. At least the proportions wouldn’t be so dramatically off.

    The body dysmorphia in that family runs deep. I hope all those beautiful kids don’t continue the trend.

    • Christina says:

      This is so true. You aren’t lying. Those poor little girls. They are dolls now, but they will be visiting plastic surgeons in their teens, just like this generation. What I wonder about is that the little girls are African American. Will they try to change their features to be more Armenian/Anglo? Will other people help them see that this isn’t necessary or will they fall, like all the other Kardashians, into hating themselves. Rob makes me sad, because he was in school and following his father’s path, but the pressure was too much. The next generation is being immersed in body dysmorphia unfettered without the influence of the late Robert Kardashian.

      • Molly says:

        I think a lot hinges on the daughters’ access to the black side of their families. You hear bits here and there about how involved the dads and their families are, but if it’s just the Kardashian-Jenners shaping those girls, they’re f*cked.

      • jimmywho says:

        Gosh I cringed whenever I see people pose like that fo rhte sake of snapchat or social media. There’s a psychological need for attention, it’s so sad because she has created a brand off of being healthy. Plastic surgery is no joke, the kardashians combined have more plastic in them than the childrens’ playground.

        Dear Kardashians,
        You are not fooling anyone, the only thing you do is feed the insecurities that already exist for the kids and teens that actually follow you. I saw Kim in real life and she look’s very very very frozen and scary. In pictures she looks great, in person she looks worst than her wax exhibit.

      • jimmywho says:

        You can all crucify me for saying this, the kardashians use filters to lighten their children’s skin color. I have no idea why they would but its super apparent when you see the raw footage vs. the filters ad lighting.

    • Yvette says:

      Who is this woman? Where is her original face??

      • Grey says:

        I have been watching Ru Paul’s Drag Race and in some of the older seasons Khloe is a guest judge. She was SO fresh and pretty and it the differences are so noticeable now.

      • Paige says:

        I guess we don’t have to wonder ‘ Whatever happened to Baby Jane’…..

      • SM says:

        It’s a Halloween Michael Jackson now. Original face long gone… too far.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      Is Kourtney the sister who has had the least plastic surgery or is it Kendall?

      • Alyse says:

        Used to be Kendall, but she seems to have upped it (maybe not actual plastic, but fillers etc at least) over past year… so maybe Kourtney now?

      • jimmywho says:

        Kendall has had a slight butt lift making her hips appear curvier. Kourtney use to be behind Kim in the procedures, as many people believe her to be “natural” she is far from it. Kendall use to be so beautiful, now she has lip implants and a very odd shape for someone who is naturally thin.

    • minx says:

      She looks ridiculous.

      • Adrianna says:

        Kim still pouts out her lips in that ridiculous way so I suppose Khloe will still be doing it when she’s 40. It’s a sign of feeling insecure with your appearance.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      The lips are so absurd, it doesn’t look sexy at all. Horrifying.

      • petee says:

        They look like they are melting most of the time so she pouts to cover that up.I dont know what doctor would do that to anyones face?

      • Tiffany :) says:

        They hang really low on her face! “Melting” is the perfect description.

      • Sally says:

        Yuck is the only word I can think of that could/would describe this unflattering look. Those duck lips need to go. She does not even look like her previous self. How do you say…………TOO MUCH????? JS IMO

    • Wigletwatcher says:

      She took it way too far with the nose… ugh.

    • alternative fact says:

      I feel like that’s the issue with cosmetic surgery/procedures. I have a coworker who got her lips done (which, wtf, we’re only 28…) and it’s surprising what even a small change can do to your facial structure/proportions. I get some people get small tweaks and it’s not noticeable but it just seems like a ripple effect of suddenly seeing all these imperfections and then tweaking other things to adjust to new proportions.

      I know Khloe isn’t the best person but I still feel bad for her and Kylie. Growing up constantly being compared to your model/influencer sisters in an image obsessed family must do a number on your self image.

  2. Eleonor says:

    The Kardashians are redefining the bdd.
    When you reach this MJ level of plastic and don’t stop you have a problem.
    It’s tragic they have the huge media influence they have.

  3. DS9 says:

    She’s looking more and more like Sophia Richie.

    It has got to be disorienting to pass by mirrors and see such a starkly different face looking back at you.

  4. Mumbles says:

    Years ago when that shiteshow of a show was starting, I remember thinking that Khloe was the most attractive because she was so comfortable in her skin. She was bigger than her sisters, her features were stronger, and at the time she conveyed a spirit of not giving a crap. All this awful work makes her just another fashion victim of homogenized, boring “beauty” standards.

    • jimmywho says:

      They are all starting to look the same. Hollywood evolving into all eva longorias’ its scary how much everyone is looking alike these days. that’s not a compliment.

  5. Steph says:

    I thought of you guys when I saw this yesterday. I was like damn girl! You made your unique nose look like Michael jackson’s Pointed broken nose! It’s unfortunate.

  6. Steph says:

    I thought of you guys when I saw this yesterday. I was like damn girl! You made your unique nose look like Michael jackson’s Pointed broken nose! It’s unfortunate.

  7. My3cents says:

    Well, there were always rumors who her biological father was, turns out it was Michael Jackson.

  8. ChillyWilly says:

    Wow. She looks like a crazy person. It’s pitiful.

  9. Vexa says:

    yikes, the video!!!! that’s when you really see how bad it is!

    i used to really like khloe but as she’s gotten more plastic it’s like she’s lost all her personality too….

  10. Elisabeth says:

    She looks so lifelike!

  11. Lenn says:

    It is sad. In her natural state she greatly resembled her father, that hairdresser guy. She is desperatly trying to undo that, is my take on it.

  12. Kitten says:

    WOW. I want to say something snarky but I actually feel a tad bad for her. She disfigured herself.

    Also, that video is so CRINGE. I mean truly the OPPOSITE of what she was going for. Not sexy. And I cannot believe that a grown-ass woman in her thirties is still doing shit like that.
    Oh look! Seems I was able to muster some snark after all ;)

    • Bebe says:

      I went and looked at it after reading your comment and GOD. I’d be embarrassed if I had posted a video like that when I was, like, fifteen. So cringe-evoking!

    • Mab's A'Mabbin says:

      After those pics, I was fully committed to snark, but like you, it makes me sad to think what this behavior is doing for millions of females. It is setting them up for full-on mental breakdown. And how does all the comical feedback escape them? How are they not grasping the ridiculousness?

      • whatWHAT? says:

        I think they don’t grasp the ridiculousness because they have enough people telling them how FABULOUS they look. they think people like us are just “haters” and we’re (my fav) “jealous” of them.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      The video is so embarrassing. For some reason, seeing her do the kissy face in motion (instead of a still picture) makes it all the more degrading. Her need is so strong, and when you combine the thirst with the facial mutilation, it ends up being a big pile of sad.

  13. ariel says:

    Therapy seems like a better, and more cost effective solution to the self-hate she seems to have deep inside her soul.
    It is sad. Poor girl.
    And yeah, imagine the good that could be done for people in real need with the *just* plastic surgery money spent by this family.

  14. LeaTheFrench says:

    All I see is a sad plastic doll with no self-esteem. And that’s not meant to be harsh. It takes a lot of self-loathing to “LA-face-ize” your looks into oblivion.

  15. lucy2 says:

    All of them just seem so messed up about their appearances (and they have nothing else to focus on). It’s sad.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      I think all the Kardashians would have been very different if their father had lived.

      Kendall and Kylie were just very unlucky in the parent lottery to be saddled with Kris & Caitlyn.

  16. Xtina says:

    She’s channeling lil Kim. I always thought she was so pretty compared to Kim and Kourtney because she looked unique. I guess to her unique means to looks like a plastic version of everyone else. It’s so sad.

    • schmootc says:

      Yep, she’s a cross between Lil Kim and Michael Jackson. Yikes. I’m on the I-feel-sorry-for-her train too though. It is quite sad.

  17. Jules says:

    Her facial reconstruction used to be sad. Now it’s scary.

  18. 10KTurtle says:

    Why is that random man’s hand holding her hair back in the top picture? Was she staging something and then forgot to photoshop that out? Unrelated: do the Kardashians have childhood pictures of themselves (or pictures from last year) around their houses, or do they hide them all to convince themselves this is all “contouring?”

    • Kitten says:

      I wonder about that too but honestly, it’s not like we can’t just Google the before and afters. Most of the work they’ve had done has occurred over the past 10-15 years.

    • Jaya says:

      There are teenage pix out there, and Chloe and Kim are nearly identical. No question they have the same parents!

  19. CindyP says:

    “Botched” could do a whole season with this family

  20. Lightpurple says:

    The philtrum isn’t supposed to stop halfway between your upper lip and nose.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      it’s creepy. like someone was trying to make a human-looking android and didn’t quite get it right.

      and whenever someone reduces and essentially “shortens” their nose, you get this weird wide space between the end of the nose and the upper lip and it makes the person looks frog-faced.

  21. LW says:

    I think she’s always had low self-esteem because she didn’t look the way her sisters do. Couple that with some crappy relationships (that she stuck with also because of her low self-esteem) and now we have this disfigured version of her. And she just tries SO. HARD. to look “hot”, but really just manages to look insecure. It’s sad.

  22. Liz says:

    Those phoney lips bring down her look. Obviously no one is being honest with her.

  23. HK9 says:

    Good plastic surgery work happens when you do strategic things so you still look like you, just better. She clearly doesn’t want to look like herself which is sad. The press always used to call her the ‘ugly’ Kardashian (which I thought was cruel) and maybe we’re seeing the result of that. I can’t even muster up any snark because, I just can’t.

  24. babsjohnson says:

    I guess she looks hot by today’s standards.

  25. LindaS says:

    That middle instagram photo is so disturbing. And sad at the same time. What could she possible do to her face next? Sad thing is I know she will come up with something.

  26. Nicegirl says:

    This is sad.

  27. Chimney says:

    I do not feel bad for her because she’s a grown woman and this is how she chose to spend her time and money. I just wonder what they’re gonna do ask they start to really age? Is getting so many procedures done sustainable for the next 40-50 years of life? Will she have this face at 80?

  28. Annie says:

    I’ve seen reality TV nobodies from the Bachelor going to way better plastic surgeons that the Kardashians. I don’t understand how you pay for botched jobs. Can’t you afford the best doctors?

  29. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    What happened to her nose???

  30. Noodle says:

    It’s easy for us to criticize because it looks, to the common-sensed observer, that she’s doing this to herself, however hideous. What is missing in the general-internet-conversation (not this website because I hold readers here in higher esteem) that she is struggling with mental illness and needs help. The more attention we give her, the more it feeds her addiction and illness. It’s incredibly sad.

  31. Aimee says:

    So what exactly happens to a persons face years from now after so much plastic surgery???? Is

    • schmootc says:

      Do the materials eventually degrade? Yeah, that is the question. I know that there have been issues with breast implants where the materials have not help up and/or caused illnesses themselves. Not what you want to see happen with your face, that’s for sure. But I guess then you just have them taken out and replaced?

      • Woppies says:

        They degrade yes (I read in 2-3 years, but maybe depending on many factors), so you need more plastic surgery to fix it/ for ‘upkeep’. Sensible ones (thinking Christie Brinkley) would just keep it looking the same.

        I can’t imagine how much upkeep needed when you mess up with your face/body THAT much tho.

  32. Mrs. Peel says:

    The barbie from my youth looks more real than Khloe.

  33. Kimberly says:

    she’s always had issues over the years : drugs, body dysmorphia, low self esteem….it’s sad she has such a horrible mother. her mother should have never had children :(

  34. SM says:

    If I was real hungry and I finally got the dish I was craving for a very long time, I would still loose my appetite if this was in front of me. And I am trying to being generous here describing the emotions this look causes. And how does one raises a kid like this? Isn’t this an emotional abuse, I mean there is no way that girls of Kardashians do not notice that their mommies are some kind of shape shifters.

  35. Kateeeee says:

    I wish she had invested her money in therapy instead of plastic surgery. She was so cute and seemingly stable/normal …ish… for a Kardashian… before Lamar. Not blaming him, just that that was a turning point for her IIRC.

    I expect a level of over the top to the Kardashian’s face work, but that picture with the skin care woman really drove home just how bizarre her face has become compared to what an actual person looks like.

  36. yuck says:

    I find it so hard to believe that she STILL denies having her nose done. Is brainwashing a part of the plastic surgery procedure?

  37. Tourmaline says:

    Is she really saying this is all done via makeup contouring?? It’s confounding. It looks like her nose was contoured all right….with a very sharp scalpel.

  38. Murphy says:

    Can that be fixed or did they take too much off and it’s unsalvageable?

    • Steph says:

      I think they can try and do a cartilage transplant, but only to an extent. I saw a clip on one of those surgery shows (I almost vomited), and they can basically only do that to stabilize the appendage. It can’t be cosmetically fixed. It’ll be wonky forever.

      I keep thinking measure twice and cut once when I see her.

  39. Savannah says:

    Who are all the people liking the K’s constant selfies?
    Why are these women constantly flaunting and posing and pouting?
    Why is THIS s*%t doing so well on instagram?

    Are people around the world braindead? This is making me lose all hope in humanity… Like.. Wtf

  40. Veronica S. says:

    Wow, this round of surgery really just took her over the edge into wonksville. What a shame to wreck your features like that because you fear you aren’t good enough. Makes me sad how many young women are learning from their example, too.

  41. Mel says:

    Sigh, I really used to like her (only) because she seemed like the only one with any normalcy/common sense. I’m more disturbed by the balloon/duck lips than I am by the nose job. Why do these women destroy their faces , that are perfectly fine so they can look like blow dolls?

  42. hogtowngooner says:

    She’s hideous inside and no amount of grotesque plastic surgery will make that go away.

  43. Yes Doubtful says:

    Is she trying to look like a blow up doll? The Jackson nose….and those lips… yikes.

  44. Sharonk says:

    Sad, sad, sad and freakish. For the love of god, STOP…

  45. JanetFerber says:

    Maybe the Kardashian ascendancy has reached its peak and will now plummet to its nadir, I hope?

  46. cupcake says:

    She can’t deny THAT nose, lord it’s horrible.

    She still will say its contouring and makeup.

  47. Eda says:

    I hate criticizing another person’s face. But. I have to comment here because it is really, really sad that so many women (of various ages!!) in LA look like this. It’s LA Face. You can even see it in Southern-California based bloggers. I can’t understand why everyone wants to look exactly the same. I wonder often, how do people view me, considering that I am an unaltered (how I refer to myself) 36 year old woman? Is it shocking at this point to have a face that moves? Non-sculpted features? Fine lines? Maybe one day faces like mine will be considered rare. They are in LA in my age group.

  48. Sara says:

    She full-on Lil’-Kim’d her face.

  49. kelleybelle says:

    The lips look beyond ridiculous and that nose (or what’s left of it) is the result of at least 6 different rhinoplasties. We have an intellectual giant here, folks!

  50. Patty says:

    She was never cute, but dayum. What has she done to herself?

  51. SilentStar says:

    What makes me saddest is the fact that there is a high likelihood that she will only get less and less happy with herself as she ages. The way things are going she’s well on her way to Jocelyn Wildenstein proportions. :(

    I truly hope that she can find more things to value in herself besides surface “beauty”. Because keeping that intact over the years is going to be a battle she will lose, like we all do, and then she’ll have no self worth at all.
