Kylie Jenner reportedly splurged on decorating her glam room with a couple of art pieces featuring the iconic blonde – Barbie.
In a recent report by TMZ, it has been revealed that the Life Of Kylie star has recently spent around $20,000 to add some flair to her glam room.
Apparently, Kylie dropped the said amount for two Barbie prints by contemporary artist Beau Dunn. Sources revealed that Jenner’s team has reached out to the artist last month for the 38×38 canvas pieces.
In a photo released by TMZ, the two Barbie portraits can be seen hanging on Kylie Jenner’s lip-printed wall, matching the glamorous theme of the room.
The visual artist, Beau Dunn, is known for her series of Barbie portraits titled “Plastic.” She also incorporates photography, paint, and sculpture in her artworks. Her unique art pieces also caught the attention of Kylie’s momager, Kris Jenner.
According to reports, the Kardashian matriarch spent serious cash to decorate her closet last year with Dunn’s Neon sign artwork that reads, “Need Money for Birkin.”
Kylie Jenner’s latest Barbie trend quickly drew various reactions online. Some admired how the curvaceous beauty showcased her fangirl side just like any Barbie-loving girls. Others were not as pleased, criticizing her taste in art and even spending habits.
This is not the first time Kylie Jenner flaunted her fondness of Barbie. Recently, the 19-year-old fashion and cosmetics mogul channeled the iconic blonde look in a photo shoot for Flaunt magazine’s “Cadence” issue.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star wowed her fans with jaw-dropping photos of herself, posing like a real-life Barbie.
In the photos, Kylie Jenner achieved the Barbie doll look with her waist-length platinum blonde wig matched with pink and purple themed makeup, outfits, and accessories. The reality star completed her doll look with glistening legs making it appear like plastic.
Kylie Jenner’s Barbie trend came amid endless speculations that she had undergone plastic surgeries and cosmetic injections in the past. Many speculated that her liking of Barbie is a subtle jab to all those who continue to criticize her “fake body.”
It can be recalled that Kylie Jenner has faced criticisms for denying that she had lip injections despite the obvious change in her lip size. Eventually, the makeup maven admitted to having temporary lip fillers and clarified that she is not against going under the knife. On her website, she wrote the following.
“I’m not against plastic surgery. Full disclosure: I’ve only been under once before when I went to the dentist and I didn’t react well; it really scared me. I threw up and I was so nauseous the next day. But as of now, I only have lip fillers. Like I’ve said before, it has always been a huge insecurity of mine and I wanted to make a change.”
In a previous interview with Complex, Kylie Jenner opened up about getting lip fillers and how it affected her life. The reality star revealed that it all started back in middle school.
“This guy I kissed was like, ‘Your lips are really small but you’re a really good kisser. I didn’t think you were gonna be good at kissing.’ It was so rude. From then on, I just felt like I saw guys staring at my lips. I felt like no one wanted to kiss me.”
She also admitted that she did go overboard with the procedure at first.
“When you first get them done, you’re like, ‘Oh, it could be a little bit bigger on that side.’ I’d go back and be like, ‘They went down’ and think they could be bigger. But I went too far. It was very painful.”
Although Kylie Jenner already admitted to getting lip fillers, that doesn’t stop speculations that she also had breast implants. The youngest Jenner vehemently denied such rumors, claiming that she only uses a Bombshell bra by Victoria’s Secret to make it look bigger.
“I haven’t gotten breast implants! Everyone is obsessed with that. Truth is, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve gained 15 pounds and my body has changed. I’ve definitely filled out.”
