I’m not ashamed to say that I’m a lifelong Kim Kardashian fan. From the moment she dropped her diamond earring in the ocean (* Kim, people are dying * ) to his latest infatuation with bug suits, I admire his ability to do just about any quote or look viral.
Likewise, I am also part of the Megan Fox team. Her cameo in Eminem’s Love the Way You Lie had me parading in a dirty tank top and knee-high boots for weeks. If I could have dyed my hair black without my mom going absolutely crazy, I would have.
The point is, being a fan of both, it was easy for me to see how similar the two become. In terms of beauty, of course. But in fact, it’s more than that. Both in their late 30s / early 40s, women seem to be entering new liberating phases in their lives. After the divorce and ready to break with stereotypes, they underwent retrospective image transformations.
It would be entirely plausible that Megan took inspiration from Kim for some of her most recent and spectacular beauty looks on the red carpet. In fact, I would say she almost has absoutely made.
Let’s read the receipts here.
Megan knocked us all down on Monday night when she debuted her “fresh out of the shower” look on the VMA red carpet. Does the style sound familiar to you? Kim did an almost identical hairstyle for the MET Gala in 2019, when she slipped into an incredibly tiny nude diamond encrusted dress. Her hair cascaded over her shoulders in wet-looking waves – a look her hairstylist Chris Appleton masterfully crafted to make it look like she was “coming out of the water.”
I’m no fashion expert, but I would also make a great similarity between Megan’s nude VMA look and Kim’s nude MET Gala corset.
Then last night, Megan debuted with another viral look at this year’s MET Gala. This time, her usual style of sleek long braids had been transformed into an edgy updo, complete with full bangs and a rope-wrapped braid. You could tell Kim doesn’t wear bangs, but again, my super fan brain found that Megan’s look indeed sounded a lot of Kim.
Aside from the obvious fact that Kim loves a rope braid, wearing it a few times over the past few years, she also experimented with full retro bangs in a campaign for her KKW Beauty Valentine’s Day collection in 2019. She even paired it up. the look with a red lip – kinda like Megan did last night.
Now that I’ve presented my case, I’d like to take a moment to examine the deeper intricacies of Megan’s “Kardashian” makeover. She is spending more and more time with Kim’s sister, Kourtney Kardashian, who is dating Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker.
Megan recently entered a high-profile and apparently very intense relationship with musician Machine Gun Kelly. Kourtney and Megan, mothers of children from previous relationships, seem to have gone through all this image change since starting their new rock ‘n’ roll relationship.
Could Kourtney lead Megan to her new “not a single f ** k given” image? Or did they both just figure out something Kim had known all along? Sexy sells.
Personally, I’m here for all the extra sexy Megan, Kim, and Kourtney want to serve.
