Not a Lip Kit Queen, Not Yet a Glow-Up: Let’s Take a Moment to Appreciate 2011 Kylie Jenner

Six years ago, Kylie Jenner was a relatively normal 14-year-old — with a natural set of lips that we often forget even existed. Since then, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, now 20, and her famously plump pout have taken her from Calabasas cutie to full-blown sex symbol. While we are impressed by the Kylie Cosmetics founder’s transformation, we can’t help but feel nostalgic when we remember what she looked like during her younger, pre-injected years.

In February 2011, Kylie appeared on the cover of Teen Vogue with her older sister Kendall Jenner. For the story, the E! personality — who is currently pregnant and expecting her first child with boyfriend Travis Scott — opened up about her “personal style,” which she admitted had a long way to go.

“I’m still developing my personal style, actually,” she said at the time, adding that her wardrobe (which, according to her, contained a lot of black) came from a variety of her favorite retail destinations like Urban Outfitters and Bloomingdale’s. “If you’re gonna go shopping, you have to go everywhere. You can’t just go somewhere and go to one store. It’s just not OK.”

These days, Kylie has traded her department store finds for high-end digs from designers such as Balmain, Gucci, and Dolce & Gabbana. But let’s be real, it’s not Kylie’s sartorial choices that have made the most drastic change. Obvi, it’s her physical appearance. Though she has repeatedly denied rumors that she’s had breast implants or butt injections, the makeup mogul finally copped to “temporary lip fillers” during a 2015 episode of KUWTK. “I have temporary lip fillers, it’s just an insecurity of mine and it’s what I wanted to do,” she said after months of speculation.

“I’m just not ready to talk [about it yet]…everyone always picks us apart,” she explained of why it took so long to come clean. “I want to admit to the lips, but people are so quick to judge me on everything, so I might have tiptoed around the truth, but I didn’t lie.”

Then, this summer, on her E! docuseries, Life of Kylie, the first-time mom-to-be revealed that her insecurity stemmed from an insensitive remark made by a boy. “I was 15 and was insecure about my lips. I had really small lips,” Kylie shared. “It was one of my first kisses and a guy was like, ‘I didn’t think you we be a good kisser because you have such small lips. Just when I guy you like says that, I don’t know, it just really affected me. I just didn’t feel desirable or pretty.”

TBH, we think Kylie’s gorgeous no matter what — luscious lips or not. ? Are you curious to remember what Kylie looked like and what her fashion sense was like back in 2011? Keep scrolling to see some of her best outfits from six years ago!
