Kylie Jenner is more than just what you’d get if a funhouse mirror reflection of current-day Kim Kardashian came to life. According to the man responsible for turning Kylie and some of her sisters into uncanny valley versions their former selves, Dr. Simon Ourian, 20-year-old Kylie Jenner is actually a heroic inspiration to young women looking to nip, tuck, stuff, and fill their faces without feeling guilty about it.
Dr. Simon spoke with WWD (via People) about one of his most famous injection sites (aka Kylie’s face). He says that ever since Kylie confessed to having “temporary” lip fillers, young women have been fearlessly lining up at the door of his office.
“When she first talked about her minimal cosmetic procedures I saw a new trend of younger women who suddenly felt empowered to unapologetically want to look more beautiful. It’s like Kylie single-handedly gave a whole generation the ticket to a more enhanced version of themselves,” Dr. Ourian explains.
“I had treated hundreds of celebrities before but very few of them were bold enough to share their secrets with such transparency. Her influence was much that what was once a taboo has now become a bragging right. People want to brag about having their lips done. My social media patients put up a selfie with me so that they can say they came to our office.”
Such bravery, and all because of Kylie Jenner! Sure, she pretty much lied about it for months before she finally came clean, but everyone who has ever gotten work done truly owes her a debt of gratitude. I don’t think it’s too soon to present Kylie with a lifetime achievement award in the field of plastic surgery excellence. You know, since she already looks like she’s had a lifetime of work done.
Speaking of the work she’s allegedly had done, someone had an ice sculpture made of Kylie’s body for her 20th birthday party. What a great idea; it starts out looking like present-day Kylie, then the ass and titties melt off, and you’re left with a sculpture of pre-surgeries Kylie. Two for the price of one!
Kylie has another reason to celebrate this week. Did you know Kylie’s little makeup company, Kylie Cosmetics, has made almost half a billion dollars? Let’s all weep together. According to WWD, Kris Jenner revealed to them last week that her youngest moneymaker’s makeup company made $420 million in 18 months of retail sales. To compare, Tom Ford Beauty (owned by Estee Lauder) reportedly hit the $500 million mark after a decade of sales.
Kylie Cosmetics is reportedly on track to see a 25% sales increase this year. If that growth trajectory continues, Kylie’s company could hit a billion dollars by 2022. Don’t forget to thank your big sister when that happens, Kylie.
Obviously, Kris Jenner is just so proud of her – I mean – Kylie’s success.
Khloe Kardashian reportedly left (then deleted) the following the following comment on that picture: “We are dead to her now.” Oh Khloe, that’s silly. Your time of death isn’t officially called until you can’t make her anymore money.
