Kris Jenner has swagger for days, and don’t you forget it. The famous momager has a closet filled with Birkin bags, and delighted the entire Internet when she posted a boss-lady look that featured a fierce blonde bob and cherry-red boots. But, British tabloid Daily Mail recently used some unflattering words to describe Jenner’s vintage style.
In a recent post, the tabloid showed off images of Jenner from her modeling days in the late 1970s. Wearing wide-brim hats, collared shirts, and a three-piece women’s suit, the then-22-year-old Jenner strutted her stuff for the camera. Predictably, the photos distracted us from work for a good half hour. (Yep. They're that good.)
To preface the black-and-white images, the Daily Mail wrote: “Before she turned momager and reality TV star, Kris Jenner was a chubby-faced store clerk and junior flight attendant.” Annnd … stop the record.
Seizing on the words, Jenner’s daughter Kim Kardashian fired back. Posting the offending quote to Twitter, Kardashian asked: “Chubby really? That’s the headline? How about beautiful, youthful, stunning?”
Indeed, Kardashian’s question is food for thought. And, for the record, we do think Jenner made the very-'70s clothes she was modeling look pretty sweet.
