Kylie sitting front row at Prabal Gurung's New York show
Was this the year Kylie Jenner stole Kim's crown as the most powerful member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan? If sales of her app are anything to go by (she left her other sisters to dust) then Kylie Jenner is on a serious roll right now - not least in the style stakes. She sat front row at Prabal Gurung during New York Fashion Week and Vera Wang hailed her as the 'inspiration' for her show.
So what makes up Kylie's style DNA? A fan of Timberland boots in her downtime and spray-on dresses with spiky Alaïa heels when she’s going out, she told us who in her family she got her very first bit of wardrobe inspiration from, and why she pays for everything (even food) herself.
‘I remember the moment I first got into fashion. It was years ago, I was going to church with Khloe on Easter morning and she put on this floral dress with a denim jacket over the top. It made me begin thinking about style and how people put different looks together. I’ve been into clothes ever since.’
‘Sometimes I look back at myself on previous seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and think, “Why didn’t you let your hair down then, or put on something nicer?” I think now I’m much more aware when the cameras are around and I do doll up a lot more.’
‘I feel like I dress like Khloe on my down days and Kim when I’m going out. If I’m just running out I’ll throw on a cute T-shirt, a pair of leggings and my Timberland boots. If I’m dressing up I love Céline and Saint Laurent, or for accessories Alaïa, Givenchy or Gianvito Rossi.’
‘My Mum [Kris Jenner] cut me off financially three years ago so I pay for everything – my car, my gas and food as well as my clothes. There are so many outfits I bought in the past that I just think now are NOT cute – but there’s not very much I can do about it!’
‘I think my style is a little bit darker thanks to my mum. There are a lot of skulls around her house and the furniture is mostly black and white. She wears a lot of black too, and I think that’s definitely rubbed off on me.’
‘I don’t get nervous when I’m having my photograph taken on the red carpet, but I am spending the whole time thinking about how the pictures are going to turn out, whether my shirt is too low, or whether my dress is the right cut.’
‘I get spray tans a lot so the Yoga Blend scrub by Nip + Fab is a good skin prep. Before I go to bed I cover my body in it and because it contains lavender it’s really relaxing. I also use Nip + Fab’s Dragon Blood Serum a lot – I have naturally dry skin so it’s good for hydration.’
‘I haven’t worked out in two and a half years. I’m living out my youth not doing any exercise and eating what I want, which is pretty bad. I’m into yellow rice – you just cook it for 15 minutes, it tastes so good.’
