The Kardashian-Jenners certainly aren’t strangers to the cover of Paper magazine, with Kim herself breaking the Internet back in 2014 thanks to that now infamous Jean-Paul Goude shot. Fast-forward to April 2016 and it’s now Kylie‘s turn to steal the show. Paper isn’t shy about mocking pop culture, having produced some questionable covers with the likes of Paris Hilton and Miley Cyrus in the past. This time around, the mag parodies Kylie Jenner’s ever-changing looks with an obviously enhanced cover shot where the reality TV star-turned-beauty mogul sports much larger eyes and a bigger-than-ever pout.
Our forum members certainly didn’t hold back. “Why even use Kylie when you can make this 100% by computer. Ugly,” declared Nymphaea the second the cover image appeared.
“How could anyone approve this? This is horrible! This is not youthful at all, Kylie looks like she’s 35 and like she’s going to melt… The tackiness is the layout, did they really make an Instagram post as a cover?” asked a horrified Aizanara.
Also not overly fond of the cover was MON: “You had Kylie and this is what you create? I’m sorry, but IMO, she has more modeling skills than her sister. I expected a sultry and sexy cover… and this is it.”
“Oh Erik, how on earth did you of all people get mixed up in this mess. It looks like a Lil’ Kim/Nicki Minaj cheap rip-off. The deliberate artificiality of this looks fitting when you bear in mind her rumoured plastic surgeries. Every time I see this girl on a cover, it seems so try-hard. It’s always something to get tongues wagging,” echoed Benn98.
Forum member honeycombchild couldn’t mask his opinion, either. “The hair is plastic but the lips are just as hers are right? I get the impression this cover is designed to absolutely take the p*ss out of her, without her being overly aware,” he commented.
But not everyone was so disenchanted. “This is AMAZING, in everything it says, in how loudly it says so! Just wow, major kudos for this cover…” Miss Dalloway congratulated.
“There’s just something about Kylie that delivers such great characters each time she’s photographed for a magazine, this is incredible,” praised TeeVanity.
So much to say, so little time. Add your own two cents here.
