It’s not just gas prices that are inflated these days.
Kendall Jenner’s lips appeared much larger than usual in a selfie-style video she posted to her Instagram Story Monday.
In the short clip, the 26-year-old supermodel was seen sitting in the front seat of a car as she filmed herself making sultry faces for the camera. While it’s clear she over-lined her mauve-colored lips to achieve the look, fans are convinced the apparent enhancement goes far beyond makeup.
“Breaking: Kendall Jenner’s lips have exploded. In other news: Los Angeles area dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons report being out of filler,” one Twitter user joked.
“She looks like a cartoon character,” another remarked.
“I’ve never seen the appeal. It always looks like a female baboon’s red butt when it’s ready to mate,” added one observer with a particularly vivid imagination.
The Kardashian-Jenner clan is notorious for shying away from admitting to plastic surgery or cosmetic procedures, and Kendall is no exception.
“No … it’s contouring,” one sarcastic critic quipped. “The Kardashian-Jenners are pros at CONTOURING their lips, nose, eyes, breasts, ass, hands, abs, men.”
The majority of those weighing in on Jenner’s “overblown” pout were not fans of the exaggerated look; however, one internet user thinks the “Kardashians” star looks great.
“I am so in awe everytime [sic] I see Kendall Jenner,” they tweeted. “idk anyone else who needed lip fillers and a nose job more badly.”
The last time Jenner publicly addressed speculation she had undergone “full facial reconstruction” was in 2017, calling the media frenzy surrounding her strikingly different appearance “CRAZY.”
“I didn’t even address it at the time,” she later explained. “Because if I address it, people are going to be like ‘Oh, so she’s defending herself — she must be guilty.’”
Jenner used her budding modeling career as an excuse, arguing that going under the knife would do more harm than good.
“It’s all so exhausting. As a model, why would I have my face reconstructed? It doesn’t even make sense,” she said.
Just last week, Jenner’s pal and colleague, Bella Hadid — who had also long denied medical beauty enhancements — finally admitted to undergoing rhinoplasty when she was 14.
