How often have you gone to your hairdresser and pulled up an Instagram screenshot of your favourite celeb’s latest cut for them to copy? All the time, right? Well, those coveted cuts began with another hairstylist, one who’s skilled (and brave) enough to tackle some of the most famous barnets in the business. So next time you’re heading to the salon, have a peep at the source of your new look first, with our seven fave famous hairdressers to follow RN…

Jen Atkin

Quite possibly the most famous tress teaser on the planet right now, Jen Atkin is best known for her work with the Kardashians and BFF Chrissy Teigen, as well as her amazing haircare line Ouai.

Jen has also worked with everyone from Bella Hadid to Katy Perry, and we’re kind of obsessed with her own now-signature bob, though the idea of having to keep up with the regular fringe trims seems like a lot of effort. Maybe we should retrain in hairstyling? Or leave it to the pros like Jen, who you should totally follow on Insta, @jenatkinhair.

Shah Karegar

His own hair is pretty in pink, but Shah is a master of all colours, keeping blonde Delilah Belle Hamilin’s highlights in check and her brunette sister Amelia Gray’s tresses looking fresh.

Oh u know just blending in . 🌺 #nobiggy #pink #haircolor

Shah’s regular clients also include model Irina Shayk and everyone’s favourite celebrity Friends, Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox. Check out his handiwork @shahkaregar.

Andrew Fitzsimons

Like Jen Atkin, Andrew is a master of Kardashian hair, working regularly with all five sisters. The Irish hairdresser counts Karlie Kloss, Shay Mitchell and Joan Smalls among his other clients, but he isn’t just about that celebrity life.

Justine Marjan

Harmonizers, if you want to see how Lauren Jauregui gets her hair looking so big and glossy, you better get following Justine. Of course, Lauren is far from Justine’s only famous client, with Victoria’s Secret Angel Lily Aldridge, Jasmine Saunders (aka Golden Barbie) and Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart all relying on her services.

Danielle Priano

She was a long-time collaborator of Mariah Carey’s, but now Danielle is best-known for her work with the Victoria’s Secret girls, regularly taming their manes on campaign shoots and appearances.

Carly Walters

An assistant of Jen Atkin’s, who is now taking on her own clients, Carly recently styled the models’ hair on Khloe Kardashian’s Good American denim campaign.

Jayson also does men’s grooming for the likes of The 1975 and US boyband Forever In Your Mind. Lucky guy! Follow him @jaysonhairdos.

If you haven’t heard of Thylane Blondeau, that’s all about to change – fast. Dubbed “the most beautiful girl in the world” by global media when she was a child model, Thylane is now 16, and looks set to dominate the industry.

But what is it about the French babe that makes her more than just another model? Here’s everything you need to know…

Thylane is signed to IMG Models

That’s only the same agency as Gigi and Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and a whole host of Victoria’s Secret Angels, so you know Thylane’s going to be big.

ready to go to NYC tomorrow 🤗🤗🇺🇸 #NYFW

A post shared by Thylane (@thylaneblondeau) on

She’s been splitting her time between walking the runway and sitting front row

This past fashion month Thylane attended the Gigi Hadid x Tommy Hilfiger show at London Fashion Week, and Michael Kors’ New York show. The season before, she walked for Dolce & Gabbana in Milan, her second appearance for the brand. And, let’s not forget, Thylane made her runway debut walking for Jean Paul Gaultier at age four.

Thank u so much for this amazing show @tommyhilfiger @gigihadid ❤️❤️ #tommynow

A post shared by Thylane (@thylaneblondeau) on

Thylane is a brand ambassador for L’Oréal Paris

And no wonder with hair and skin like hers! Imagine all the free products she must get…

She’s well-travelled  

While Thylane is based in the South of France, her career has taken her all around the world, and she’s a big fan of London and Los Angeles. She recently tweeted, “I think that AIRPLANES are my new home,” and she’s probably right.

A post shared by Thylane (@thylaneblondeau) on

Her parents are also in the public eye

Her dad, Patrick Blondeau, is a former footballer and Thylane’s mum, Véronika Loubry, is a TV host. Strong genes. Thylane told W Magazine that her parents have taught her to “always be [herself],” adding, “My mum is always with me and I’m constantly consulting her.”

I WISH U A MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE🎄🎄🎅🏼❤️ I LOVE U!!

A post shared by Thylane (@thylaneblondeau) on

She has a few famous friends

Thylane is tight with Daniel Day-Lewis’ musician son Gabriel-Kane, plus fellow model Barbara Palvin and even Zendaya, with whom she starred in a Dolce & Gabbana campaign.

It’s Christmas party season! And that means it’s time to kit yourself out with the sparkliest dress you can find because in case you didn’t get the memo, December = glitter.

We’re talking shiny metallics, glistening sequins and twinkling fabrics all wrapped up in one super festive outfit that was made for the school dancefloor.
So whether your style vibe is shimmery but subtle or total tinsel town, the shops are stocked to the brim with midis and minis to get you in the party mood.

Sparkly slip

Sequins are *everywhere* this season and this cute slip will turn you into a seriously stylish disco ball. It’s perfect if your look is pretty extra, even if it’s a bit pricey. (Pop it on your Christmas list and hope for the best?) If you get it in time for NYE, rock it up with biker boots or go double-glitter and pair it with your fave sparkly block heels.

Disco Sequin Embellished Slip Dress, £95

Sophisticated sister

Velvet + sequins = match made in heaven. The pearly sequins on this dress are super cool. The best bit? Although this mini is literally covered in spangle, you can *totally* dress it down during party season with a pair of fresh white trainers. Obsessed.

Sequin velour dress, £34.99

Golden girl

One shoulder styles inspired by the 80s are bang on trend this season. Erm, hello Stranger Things. (Okay, it’s not like Barb was wearing a disco dress but y’know, this era is hot right now.) This gold number is perfect for your best mate’s Xmas bash. What’s more, the dress does the talking so you don’t even need to wear heels. Winner.

One Shoulder Sequin Mini Bodycon Dress £46

Sequin showstopper

Don’t like to blend into the crowd? This River Island x Ashish slip is The One. The mix of mustard and baby pink takes some confidence to pull off but we say go for it! Just slick on a bright red lip, your fave black boots and slay.

Sequin lace slip dress, £50

Pretty in pink

This iridescent baby is basically a unicorn in dress form. What’s not to like? With its kick-out skirt and nipped-in waist you’ll look super cute. Plus it also means you can eat as many mince pies as you like without worrying about food-binge-bloat. We love New Look’s twist on the traditional Christmas colour palette, too. You’ll be sure to dazzle.

Metallic jacquard cut out skater dress, £39.99

Tinsel tailoring

This super fun black dress combines two of our fave party embellishments ever: sequins and tassels! Seriously, you will feel like a sassy Christmas tree as you shimmy across the dfloor in this hun. You need it RN.

Sequin and tassel long sleeve bodycon dress, £40

Burgundy babe

We’re totally obsessed with this little beauty. The colour is to die for! Rusty and burgundy shades look amazing during the winter months and this dress is the best of both worlds. Autumnal colours teamed with a spray of Christmas sparkle = *adds to basket*.

Burgundy sequin slip dress, £34.99

Rapper Cardi B came out of nowhere when her debut single, Bodak Yellow, topped charts and broke records around the globe this summer. The 25-year-old rapper, who hails from The Bronx in New York, has shot to worldwide fame and we’re completely obsessed with her.

While her music is naturally our favourite thing about Cardi – real name Balcalis Amanzar – she has also bestowed another totally epic gift upon the world: her completely extra fashion sense. Subtle? Nah. Slaying? 100%

You see, this is not a wallflower, oh no. Cardi B is the lady who, back in February, wore a top-to-toe sequinned mermaid dress to sit front row at the Namilia show during New York Fashion Week. And why shouldn’t she have? Cardi was representing the designer and looked downright fabulous doing so.

A performance at the Mayweather and McGregor weigh-in in Las Vegas in August called for a bedazzled catsuit and waist-length blonde hair. And, yep, we’re pretty sure those are six-inch heels Cardi’s wearing in the boxing ring. That’s one way to tackle the never-ending athleisure trend.

Then there’s Cardi’s music video looks. Styled by Mikiel Benyamin, she wore this insane mirrored body by iconic design duo The Blonds for her Lick video shoot, teamed with quite possibly the longest ponytail we’ve ever seen. Watch out, Ariana Grande.

While her wardrobe might not exactly be practical for a chilly UK day when you’ve got school to attend, there’s no denying that Cardi is helping inject a sense of fun and frivolity back into fashion. Favouring new designers and brands like Christian Cowan and Human Aliens, she’s never not colourful and quirky.

@christiancowan on my body ❤️ LV on my feet,this pony tail killing me 😂😂😂

A post shared by Cardi B Official IG (@iamcardib) on

Of course, Nylon magazine’s Rebel Fashion Party in September was the perfect place for Cardi to show off her style, rocking up in this all-over sequin jumpsuit by Halpern. Maybe we can borrow it for our Christmas party?

 

And who could overlook the beautiful, but still dramatic, gown Cardi B wore to Rihanna’s Diamond Ball? The Christian Siriano dress was so big she had to sit in the boot of a very large car to get it to the event in one piece. Then, on arrival, the gown required the assistance of four people to get it (and Cardi) in the building.

What will Cardi wear next? Your guess is good as ours, but one thing’s for sure, it’ll be absolutely fabulous. Don’t go changing, Cardi – unless it’s a costume change. Those are 100% allowed.

Winter clothes sound so good on paper. Cute skirts, cosy jumpers, lovely thick tights… and you can never have enough pairs of boots, right? Let’s be honest, it’s a breeze compared to summer fashion, which is all weird cut-outs and the ever-present danger of accidentally flashing someone. But cold-weather clothing isn’t without its challenges, and if none of these things have ever happened to you, please, PLEASE tell us how.

1. Your feet will feel permanently damp

Ballet pumps are a definite no-go at the slightest hint of rain, but we all know how unpredictable the weather is, so you can guarantee you’ll end up with squishy soles at least once this winter. Of course, you could wear a pair of sturdy boots, but the rain will still find its way in somehow. And if, miraculously, your shoes remain completely watertight, your feet will still end up damp because they’ve been sweating in their airless prisons. You can’t win.

2. Long hair? Say hello to the scarf dreadlock

Long hair + scarf = one big matted mess at the back of your head. And it’s usually at the nape of your neck, too, where it’s the most painful to comb out knots. Ouch.

3. You’ll never be wearing the right amount of layers

Literally never. So you’ll either be too hot and carrying a cumbersome coat, or too cold and wishing you had it with you.

4. Everything is made of static

You’re going to spend the next three months wearing materials like wool, nylon and polyester, which means you’re going to spend the next three months tackling flyaway hair and being afraid of touching door handles in case you get a static shock.

5. Tights, and everything about them

Tights: great in theory, just the absolute worst in practice. They ladder when you’re putting them on (or when you’ve just left the house so there’s nothing you can do about it), they sit uncomfortably on your hips, dig into your stomach, hang low around your crotch, create static (see above) and have you ever smelled the feet of them after a long day? DON’T.

6. Your best coat becomes covered in bobbles

You’ll only get a couple of wears out of your beautiful new winter coat before a few bobbles appear – usually under the arms where there’s a bit of friction. No problem, you think, before diligently removing them with a lint brush or razor. Then a few more pop up, and in places where there’s no friction at all. Then even more. What the…? At this stage you don’t even know how they keep appearing. Eventually you just do the bare minimum to make your coat look vaguely presentable, then shove it in the back of the cupboard, telling yourself you’ll get another one next year. When the same thing will happen.

7. You need a massive bag to carry your essentials around

Because now your essentials include a hat, scarf and gloves, several packets of tissues, various flakiness-fighting creams and lip balms, and an umbrella. And those are just the essentials.

8. Keeping knitwear neat is a never-ending battle

Fingernails, cats, jewellery, door handles, zips, Velcro… everything is a hazard when you’re wearing a nice knitted jumper. And if you do catch a snag, you can guarantee it’ll be somewhere super obvious, like right in the middle of your boobs.

9. The thing you want is always in the wash

It’s cold out so you layer up to keep warm, then you enter a building and it’s like 100 degrees, and suddenly you’re sweatier than you ever remember being during the summer. Add rain, slushy snow and mud splashes to the mix and you’ll be lucky to get more than one wear out of any item before it’s turfed into the laundry basket. Which is where it’ll be the next time you desperately need it.

10. Co-ordination is complicated

It’s pretty hard to give off sleek, sophisticated outfit vibes when you’ve got to pair your LBD with a big padded coat and cartoon mittens. Ditto, a long thick overcoat won’t help when you’re trying to keep it cute and casual. You need to keep all bases covered – sounds like an excuse to go shopping to us!

There are so many ways to express yourself through your style these days. Sometimes you feel like embracing your inner Kardashian with some killer contour, other days you turn to heavy eyeliner and Dr Martens for a Kristen Stewart grunge vibe. Being a girl can be pretty awesome.

One easy way to change up your style without doing anything too drastic is to get a new piercing. They’re super cute, don’t have to be permanent and can make you feel instantly refreshed.

But if you are thinking about getting your first piercing or adding to your collection, hold up a second and read our piercings handbook. From all the different styles to helpful hygiene tips, here are a few things you might want to consider before committing to a shiny new friend.

Am I even allowed one already?

Many piercing shops have their own age restrictions but usually, if you’re over 16, the piercing world is your oyster. Under 16? Then you’ll need your parent or guardian’s consent. Just remember you probably won’t be allowed to keep your piercings in at school so you might have to get tactical with your piercing/healing/school holiday dates.

So, where are the places I can get pierced?

Most people tend to go for the ear lobes first, but who says you have to be like most people? There are loads of places to choose from – check out our ear piercing guide for inspo! If you’re going for somewhere on the body though, you can pretty much pick anywhere you want…

The belly button

Back in the nineties, belly bars were *the* piercing of the moment and who doesn’t love a bit of 90s fash? You can opt for rings or bars in different shapes, sizes and colours, totally customising your stomach, plus they’re easily hidden so won’t cause Grandma to faint on Christmas Day.

The nose

If you want more of a statement piercing (like on your actual face) a cute option is a twinkling nose piercing. If you’d rather something super subtle go for a tiny nostril stud, but if you want to nail that grunge feel, opt for a ring through your septum like Bella Thorne.

The lip

Lip piercings are pretty low on the pain scale and are an easy place to experiment. From the labret (under the lip, just above the chin) to the monroe and madonna (above the lip on the left hand or right hand side) to the medusa (just below the nose, right in the centre), there are plenty of places to go play.

The tongue

If your motto is ‘no pain no gain’ then a tongue piercing could be for you. Speaking from experience: it hurts. It can also give you a serious lisp for a few weeks so don’t go into this one lightly. The midline (aka middle of your tongue) is the most common place to get pierced but you can get bars under the tongue, sideways through the tongue and through the very tip.

Body mods

If all of this is too vanilla then you can get some pretty out-there piercings. Think back corsets (this involves small hoops and ribbon to create the look of a corset), nipples and microdermals (a single-point surface piercing) – you can get this last one literally anywhere!

How do I know the best place to go?

Rule number one: DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME. Seriously. Not only will it be super painful, but piercing any body part yourself is super dangerous. Leave it to the experts honey.

Rule number two: Hygiene is key. When it comes to piercings, cleanliness is super important so you need to make sure that you go to a reputable, licenced parlour. During your consultation, the body piercer will tell you all about keeping your own piercing clean. Listen up babe ‘cos ain’t nobody got time for a puss-infested mess.

Rule number three: Ensure that you get your piercing with proper silver or gold jewellery. Though it may be slightly more expensive, it’s always better to opt for a good quality metal. Gold and silver are not reactive metals so tend to be less irritating for the skin and will make the healing process a whole lot easier.

So, how are they actually done?

Body piercings are done using a needle so definitely aren’t suitable for the squeamish. The piercer starts by marking the spot with a pen, clamping the desired area then passing a cannula (a hollow needle with a thin tube attached) through the skin. They then use this hollow needle to thread the jewellery through. Voila!

How long do they take to heal?

Depending on what piercing you choose, it could take between 4 weeks and 12 months for it to heal. Tongue, nostril and lip piercings tend to take 4-8 weeks, septum piercings can take up to 3-6 months and navel piercings can take up to 6-12 months but all this varies from girl to girl. It’s a good idea to check with your piercer first if you’re worried about healing times.

While body piercings usually take longer to heal then ear piercings, it’s important to remember that all pain should be temporary. If you feel like your piercing has been bugging you for a bit too long, it’s definitely worth speaking to your GP or piercest to check it’s not infected.

Remember, piercings aren’t permanent. They can be taken out really easily if you go off them or if your mum goes crazy, but FYI you are likely to experience scarring, bumps, depressions or holes when you remove them – these leftovers might not be as fun as a face full of studs. That being said, they’re a super fun way to experiment with your look so go glitter yourself!

Sometimes an item of clothing comes along that every stylish celebrity is obsessed with and, lucky for us mere mortals, the high street quickly clamours to copy. This season, said item is Réalisation Par’s Emilie dress in the Shanghai nights print, which – at $160 (around £120) – is definitely more of a Christmas (plus birthday and next Christmas) gift combined than a pocket money purchase.

A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

Seen on the Instagram feeds of Kylie Jenner and model of the moment Kaia Gerber, the silk Emilie dress and its cherry blossom print has spawned plenty of similar styles, at a third of the price tag.

Whether you fancy a frock as close to the original as possible or are just taking loose inspiration, we’ve found some killer dupes that won’t break the bank, which you can shop below. Just add heels – or, for daytime, slip on over a T-shirt and team with stompy biker boots. It’s a win-win situation.

The red one

Urban Outfitters’ Waterlily frock is the little red dress you never knew you needed… until now. With a super similar shape and design to Réalisation Par’s Emilie, it’s the attention-seeking alternative to the original, thanks to its bold rouge colour. Bonus – at £44 you won’t have to save for too long to afford it. Shop here.

The velvet one

If silk and satin aren’t your style, Pretty Little Thing have created this little black velvet number, as part of their collaboration with Kourtney Kardashian. Yep, that’s right, you can dress like a Kardashian for just £25. Result! Shop here.

The really floral one

Nasty Gal’s A Rose Between Two Thorns dress is perfect if you like the shape and style of the Réalisation Par one, but you fancy a bolder print, and it’s a total steal at £30. Shop here.

The bright one

Like your blues bright rather than navy? Forever 21’s aqua version will make all your mermaid dreams come true. £35 and it’s yours – shop here.

The playsuit

More of a playsuit gal? Missguided have you covered with this black satin romper. The adjustable straps mean even tall girls can get in on the action without fear of the dreaded camel toe and all for £25. Shop here.

Ever lost an entire afternoon on Instagram and Pinterest ogling impossible-looking manicures? Us too, which is how we stumbled upon one of the most genius inventions of the 21st century: period nail art.

That’s right, ladies, nail designs that pay full homage to Auntie Flo in all her bloody glory. Will you just look at those tiny tampon strings?! Never before has a ‘used’ sanitary product looked quite so cute.

I really don't understand why my tampon nails never became a trend 🤷🏼‍♀️

A post shared by Annelies Hofmeyr (@wit_myt) on

While the brains behind this specific design is conceptual artist Annelies Hofmeyr, who dedicated an Instagram series – The Period Project – to all things menstrual back in 2015, she’s not the only genius getting in on the period nails action.

Floridian nail decal designers Nail Pop LLC actually have a set of nail transfers dedicated to that time of the month.

For just $10 you can let everyone know you’re on your period, with added bloody pads, tampons and menstrual cups for extra decorative effect. Nail artist Asa Bree, whose work is pictured above, even added some chains and glitter for a truly eye-catching surf on the crimson wave.

Using the same set of decals, nail technician Lindsay Raquel painted her own protest against US Vice President Mike Pence, and his controversial views on women’s rights, birth control and abortion. We think she nailed it (soz…).

After something a little more subtle? The artists at Las Vegas salon Just The Tip created this red stiletto-shaped mani with tampon-designed ring fingers. Now all we need is to see someone get engaged while rocking period nails and all our Instagram fantasies will be complete.

About five seconds of scrolling through Instagram will give you all the proof you need that it’s aaaall about the ear piercings right now. Multiple earrings are having a serious style moment and it’s no wonder – they all look awesome, effortless and there’s a whole lot of different types and combinations to choose from.

While you’re stuck with a tattoo forever, piercings are a great option if you wanna express yourself or try a new look without any permanent decisions. So if you’re thinking of taking the plunge and adding a teeny tiny ear piercing (or seven) to your life, here’s everything you need to know.

What do all the different styles and names actually mean?

Considering your ears are a fairly small part of your body, there are endless options for piercing ’em up – and right now there’s even the huge trend of constellation jewellery, which sees gals and guys rocking arty, starry sky-inspired clusters of multiple piercings all at once.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves here; with some dreamy examples from Instagram to inspire and illustrate things clearly for you, let’s make sure you know exactly what you’re after with a quick rundown of all the different ear piercing names, their style, and exactly where they are. Handy, eh?

So, is it gonna hurt? 

Let’s be honest, you’re voluntarily sticking your hand in the air to have a whacking great needle and/or gun pop a hole in your flesh, hooraaay. So yep, it probably is going to hurt – at least a little bit.

But everyone has different pain thresholds. A piercing that’s the most painful experience in the world for your BFF might be no biggie for you – and you’ve chosen to have it in the name of fashion, remember, so the knowledge of how great it’s going to look might carry you through. But at the very least, you can expect a little bit of discomfort during the actual piercing, and maybe even afterwards while it heals.

Which ones are the most and least painful? 

It’s a different experience for everybody, but the easiest way to figure out a pain rating is to think about exactly what you’re punching a hole into. Generally, the ear lobe is said to be least painful because it’s fleshy and soft, while something a bit edgier like a helix, forward helix, daith or conch is gonna hurt more because it’s pure, tough cartilage.

Generally speaking, you’re looking at a rough pain-o-meter that goes something like this from least to most ouch-worthy.

LEAST PAINFUL

Lobes
A good one to go for if it’s your first ever piercing. They’re super fleshy, so it’s just like a small pinch or sting.

Helix
This is full-on cartilage so needs some more pressure to pierce – but it’s still over in seconds.

Daith/Tragus
Through your inner cartilage, meaning it’s uncomfortable but not unbearable

Rook/Snug
You’ll feel a sharp pressure that lasts a few moments while the needle pushes through thick cartilage (but on the other hand, it’s tucked inside your ear so it’s less likely to catch on anything afterwards).

Conch
It pierces directly through the shell of your ear which is thicker cartilage, so very little flesh means more pressure and pain.

Industrial
It goes without saying that this one’s two parts of the ear (and they’re both cartilage), so that’s technically two piercings in one go. Ow.

And what about afterwards? 

Once you’re all done and dusted at the (professional and sterile) piercing parlour, it’s all on you to make sure that things don’t take a turn for the gross with your piercing. Healing completely depends on the type of piercing – ear lobes take around four to six weeks, while cartilage piercings can take up to a whole year. We know it’s tempting, but do NOT rush to change your jewellery until it’s properly healed.

Aftercare is also super important to make sure that you’re not left with any infections and that your new piercing heals to Pinterest levels of perfection.

Ask your piercer for specific instructions, but it’s generally agreed that you should be using a clean cotton bud and a sterile saline or antibacterial solution to gently remove any dried blood or discharge. Try not to twist the piercing as this could irritate it. If things get swollen, extra bloody or painful despite all of this, get it checked out.

So here ends your introductory lesson on ear piercing. In conclusion: read reviews online, don’t be afraid to ask literally ANY questions you have before and after the big moment, and be strict with yourself when it comes to sticking to the aftercare.

Happy piercing, pal.

Can someone please stop the clock. Like, how is it nearly November? This is a pretty weird time of year weather wise and in the last few weeks the sky’s been pretty spooky. It’s not warm enough to just brave it with a t-shirt and not cold enough to dig out your fave winter (faux) fur. Oh and what’s that, yep, it’s raining. Great.

As much as we hate it, there is one good thing that comes from the drizzle – a perfect excuse to invest in a new raincoat. It would seem that every cloud really does have a silver lining. LOL.

More so than any of her siblings, Kylie Jenner has literally grown up on our screens, finding her fashion feet with every passing season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Remember when she was just a tiny 10 year old? A teenage tomboy? And now she’s a completely boss businesswoman with an off-duty wardrobe just as enviable as any of her red carpet looks.

With that in mind, and with KUWTK turning 10 today (Happy Birthday guys!), let’s take a look back at Kylie’s style evolution…

Pre-teen twinning Kylie

Who hasn’t matched or at least co-ordinated outfits with their sister at some point in their life? Attending Kiis-FM’s Wango Tango, Kylie was still pretty girlie here, as she and Kendall rocked pink and black and white all over. Note the UGG boots, which no self-respecting girl was seen without circa 2008.

Teen queen Kylie

Finding her own style in 2009, Kylie wore this cute floral prom dress and caged heels to Selena Gomez’s album launch party, and looked like all of us at our first big school dance.

Gothic glam Kylie

Can you believe Ky was only 14 when this picture was taken at the premiere of Beastly? It wasn’t long after this that she started changing up her hair colour and becoming the fashion rebel we all love.

Coachella Kylie

Kylie honed her festival style early, rocking this flower crown and lace two-piece to Coachella in 2014, while still keeping the Goth vibe alive.

Colourful Kylie

Ky’s turquoise ends at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards were the inspiration for many a hair experimentation in our own lives, while her white bodycon dress and laser-cut heels were a hint at the more grown-up side of her wardrobe, which was very much on the way at this point.

Bombshell Kylie

By the American Music Awards later that year, Kylie’s transition into full-blown bombshell was pretty much complete, her dark red silk gown reminiscent of an old Hollywood starlet. The turquoise hair remained, letting us know her more untraditional, rebellious streak was still intact. This is one Kardashian gal who definitely does not follow the mould.

Princess Kylie

We were completely obsessed with this romantic, princess-y look Kylizzle wore to a Golden Globes party in 2016. Serious Cinderella vibes or what?

Mogul Kylie

In her white Balmain trouser suit at Marie Claire’s 2016 Fresh Faces party, Kylie looked every inch the Lip Kit mogul she is, and we loved her for it. What a boss!

Muse Kylie

Attending the 2017 Met Gala with Donatella Versace, Kylie showed off her high-fashion side in this incredible creation, which the designer made specially for her. We adored the platinum bob, too.

What will Kylie wear – and do with her hair – next? We’ll have to stay tuned to KUWTK, and her Insta feed, to find out.
