I’m not ashamed to say I’m a long time fan of Kim Kardashian. From the moment she dropped her diamond earring in the ocean (*Kim, people are dying* ) to her latest bug suit craze, I admire her ability to make just about any quote or look go viral.
Similarly, I’m also on team Megan Fox. Her cameo in Eminem’s Love the Way You Lie had me parading around in a dirty tank top and knee-high boots for weeks. If I could have dyed my hair black without my mother going absolutely mental, I would have.
The point is, being a fan of both it’s been easy for me to watch just how similar the two are becoming. In terms of their beauty looks, that is. But actually, it’s more than that. Both now in their late thirties/early forties, the women seem to be entering new liberating phases of their lives. Post-divorce and ready to break from stereotypes, they’ve gone through retrospective image transformations.
It would be completely plausible for Megan to have taken inspo from Kim for some of her newer and more dramatic red carpet beauty looks. In fact, I’d say she almost definitely did.
Let's read the receipts here.
Megan floored us all on Monday night when she debuted her “fresh out the shower” look on the VMAs red carpet. Does the style seem familiar? Kim did a near-identical hair look for the MET Gala in 2019, when she squeezed herself into an impossibly tiny, diamond-encrusted nude dress. Her hair cascaded down her shoulders in wet-look waves – a look that her hairstylist Chris Appleton masterfully constructed to look like she was “getting out of water”.
I’m no fashion expert but I’d also draw a large similarity between Megan’s nude VMA look and Kim’s nude MET Gala corset.
Then last night, Megan debuted another viral look at this year’s MET Gala. This time her usual style of long sleek tresses had been transformed into an edgy updo, featuring a full fringe and a rope-wrapped braid. You could argue that Kim is no fringe wearer, but again, my super-fan brain clocked that Megan’s look did indeed ring very much of Kim.
Aside from the obvious fact that Kim loves a rope braid, wearing it many times over the past few years, she also got experimental with a full retro fringe in a campaign for her KKW Beauty Valentine’s Day collection in 2019. She even paired the look with a red lip – much like Megan did last night.
Now that I’ve presented my case, I’d like to take a moment to look at the deeper intricacies of Megan’s “Kardashian” makeover. She’s spending an increasing amount of time with Kim’s sister Kourtney Kardashian, who happens to be dating Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker.
Megan has recently entered a highly publicised, and seemingly very intense, relationship with musician Machine Gun Kelly. Both Kourtney and Megan, mothers to children from previous relationships, seem to have had this whole image shift since they began their new rock ‘n’ roll relationships.
Could Kourtney be leading Megan to her new “not a single f**k given” image? Or have they both just cottoned on to something that Kim has known all along? Sexy sells.
Personally, I’m here for all the additional sexy that Megan, Kim and Kourtney want to serve.
