Kim Kardashian's no-makeup 'Vogue' cover makes no-makeup selfies look like amateur hour.
Kim Kardashian is going to be featured in Vogue España, and she just posted the issue cover on her Instagram. But here's the shocking twist that no one ever saw coming: she's not wearing makeup! It's like a no-makeup selfie, but instead of being taken in the dim privacy of a celebrity's luxurious extra bathroom for the sake of a powerful and/or confusing political statement, it's on the cover of a fashion magazine. Kim K. wrote:
Vogue Spain Cover! We did the whole shoot without makeup! Can't wait for you to see it!
As unprecedented as this development is, I think we need to take a moment and reflect on what Tyra Banks wrote in the caption of her own no-makeup selfie:
You know how people say #nofilter but you know there's a freakin' filter on their pic? Or maybe there's a smidge of retouching going on but they're lying and saying it's all raw & real?
Sure, Kim might not be wearing any makeup, but that airbrushed Vogue cover could probably be hashtagged #manymanyfilters. We'll have to wait until the issue comes out to find out what Kim's no-makeup thesis is, but it's going to be hard to prove a point about harsh beauty standards when you're still observing them, but through technology instead of foundation. Yes, that's right, I'm saying airbrushing is robot makeup!
