The Internet Is Roasting Kim Kardashian For Her Tone-Deaf Birthday Trip

As we’ve learned over the years, if we can count on the Kardashians for two things, it’s their love for throwing chill, low-key birthday celebrations, and their ability to read the room. I kid, obviously. That’s why it was not at all surprising when Kim Kardashian posted a Twitter thread on Tuesday bragging about her recent private island getaway for her 40th birthday. Along with many photos of mask-less rich people having a great time in paradise, Kim wrote that the trip followed “2 weeks of multiple health screenings and asking everyone to quarantine,” and that it was a great way to “pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time.”

The thing is, things are not normal right now. We’re still setting new records for new COVID cases, a terrifying election is less than a week away, and the sun is about to start setting at 4pm. In another tweet, Kim acknowledged her privilege and said that “for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now,” but somehow that doesn’t make me feel better about the fact that I haven’t seen my family in almost a year.

Here’s the original thread, in case you need a reason to be mad today:

As you can probably guess, people online were not happy about Kim’s posts, and she was widely criticized for being tone-deaf. But along with the criticism, this was also a prime opportunity to clown Kim, which is an internet pastime we can all get behind. People quickly started pairing her ridiculous tweet with pop culture images, et voilà, a trend was born.

But now that we’ve laughed at the memes and cried at the fact that we’re not on a private island right now, let’s go over some key details that we know about the trip. According to E! News, the private island is located in Tahiti, and Kim obviously flew all her guests there on a private jet. Fun fact: did you know that California still advises its citizens against traveling for non-essential reasons? That’s right! The state COVID-19 website states that you should “avoid travelling long distances for vacations or pleasure as much as possible,” and that “If you do travel, take steps to keep everyone safe like wearing a face covering, keeping 6 feet of physical distance from those not in your household, and washing your hands frequently.” Obviously, lots of people in California have traveled for non-essential reasons in the last seven months, but it’s clear that Kim & Co. weren’t wearing masks or taking any other precautions while they were on the island, even if they were tested beforehand.

Based just on the photos Kim posted, there were at least 20 people on the trip with her, which is more than I would ever want on a group trip, but to each their own. Along with family members, there are several other random friends in the pictures, but there are some things to note about who merited an invite. Rob was in attendance, along with Scott and Tristan, who both may or may not be back together with their respective Kardashian significant others. It’s unclear how many kids were on the trip, but Mason was in one of the photos, so if Scott and Kourtney aren’t together, maybe he was just there on babysitting duty.

But there was one person who was conspicuously absent from any of the photos in Kim’s post: Kanye. Over the past few months, there have been endless rumors about the status of Kim’s relationship with Kanye, but missing out on the 40th birthday trip would be a major development. Busy on the campaign trail, perhaps? For a while, it really seemed like he wasn’t there, but then Kourtney made us question everything when she posted a photo of Kanye riding a bike in the jungle on her Instagram story.

At first, some of my coworkers wondered if this was a photo from an old trip, dropped quietly on Kourtney’s Instagram story so people would see it, but it wouldn’t really make news. This seemed like a plausible theory, but based on the model of YEEZYs that Kanye is wearing, this photo couldn’t be from any earlier than summer 2020 (I hate that I know this), so I’m guessing he really was on the birthday trip. But if that’s the case, then WHY wasn’t he in any of Kim’s photos? This didn’t just happen by accident! Netflix, I have a suggestion for the next season of Unsolved Mysteries!

At the end of the day, there’s really nothing surprising about this whole trip, or the social media posts. Kim and her family have shown us who they are time and again, and I don’t really have the energy to be outraged. Kim is gonna do Kim, and I’ll just stay in my apartment for six more months, or until someone pays for me to take a private jet somewhere. It’s fine, everything is fine!

A Timeline Of Kim Kardashian’s Face Through The Years

Kim Kardashian has now been in our lives for a very, very long time. We’ve seen her adapt from an Armenian princess who cleaned celebrity closets to the Illuminati cyborg clone we know and love. Kim’s changed her style a lot over the years, but somehow not as often as she’s changed her face. We literally could do a whole series on each of the Kardashian/Jenner clan and their ever-changing faces, but for now we’ll focus on Kim. (Although my favorite Kardashian is Khloé, because she’s sassy.) And remember, if it weren’t for Kim having sex on camera and Kris Jenner being a marketing genius, none of these people would have careers. Let’s take a look at how much has changed since Kim first came into the limelight.


Ah, 2006 Kim. She looks so different here, it’s insane. This is actually even before KUWTK, when she was simply holding Paris’s handbags and cleaning her closet. The good old days, if you will. Who would have thought Kim would turn into who she is now?


This is the year KUWTK started. Kim decided that the real essential to her look would be very dark glitter eyeshadow. But the nude MAC Lipglass stays. This is also when Kim discovered fillers.


Kim figures out how to give herself a forehead! This is actually how I remember Kim in general: like, she’s cute, dating Reggie Bush I think, but very much still looks like a naturally pretty Armenian girl. This is before the white-washing begins.


2008 Kim to 2009 Kim isn’t even the same person??? Like, what exactly has happened here? I want to say she had a nose job, but her nose looks the same. Her skin is way lighter, so I don’t know if this is like a skin-bleaching regimen or she just learned to use sunscreen like the rest of us. Her lips definitely have a bit more filler, but it’s nothing compared to what’s coming up.


This is the year that every woman thought they could be Angelina Jolie with enough injections. It doesn’t work that way. I know this because this is exactly what my mom also looked like that year: puffy and her face doesn’t move correctly. Yikes.


Ok, THIS is the year of the nose job (it looks way thinner) and when Kim really, really needed to lay off the fillers and botox. Look at those eyebrows! She’s an inch away from cartoon movie villain. Maybe it’s just the spidery bottom lashes, but she looks a bit scary.


Oh good, this is the year that Kim learned to blend. These must be the Kanye years. It also seems like she laid off some of the fillers (except for her lips, for sure).


Kim lightens her hair and gets a better makeup artist. I actually still really love this look. I don’t know if it’s just the softer eye makeup and the lighter hair, but she’s looking very, very different to me from the last pic. Is her nose the same? Her skin even looks way lighter to me too? How is this the same woman??


LOL remember how I said Kim looked way lighter in the last photo? Kim has now eschewed her Armenian heritage completely. Her nose looks even thinner, but I’ll guess it’s a contour. Did we do contours in 2014? We must have, because her face looks way thinner and more chiseled too. Or I guess that could be fillers? She’s gotten very thick, Muppets-y eyelashes from 2007 on as well. IDK.


Kim’s lashes and lips keep growing. She explores vampy looks. She lays off the cheek and brow filler (highly recommend) but adds more to the lips. I am rapidly losing interest in this. Is anyone still reading this?


Kim decided that while Kylie was building her billion dollar empire on having huge lips, Kim would be the queen of zero lips. Not a great look, Kimmie. Also, her forehead is a different color than the rest of her face. She looks very, very pale. Also, her eyeshadow is from The Lion King. That is all.


Kim gets a tan and is a blonde. I hate the roots on this wig. I don’t mind roots showing with intention, but at least blend a little. Her eyebrows are super thick for this look. Her nose and cheeks look super different as well? Like, the nose is way thinner? Is this another nose job or a contour? I can’t even tell with these people. The cheeks are so big and sharp they could cut glass.


Kim’s lips are huuuuuge compared to 2017. Maybe she had just gotten them done. I do like when Kim decided to go more natural with less makeup and dark, casual waves. But is it considered more natural when it’s 100 pounds of foundation and lighter makeup? Or more natural when she’s walking around with a gigantic mane of fake hair? IDK?


And here we are, our current Kim K. She looks a bit… puffy to me. It’s v similar to 2010 with all the fillers. But what’s really crazy is that this woman now has completely generic features compared to her 2006 counterpart. I mean:

Do these people even know each other? They don’t really even look related. And if you want to see a GIF of Kim’s faces over the years, here it is:

Which Kim is your favorite? Do you think her face has changed a lot? What do you think about celebrities that white wash themselves once they’re famous? LMK!

Wait, Does Kim Kardashian Have A Sixth Toe?

Look, I didn’t really think I’d spend my morning analyzing photos of Kim Kardashian’s toes, but yet here I am. In my defense, though, I didn’t just wake up thinking this would be a fun activity to start my day (although, I’ll admit, it’s been fairly entertaining so far). I’m doing it because Demi from Bachelor in Paradise has oh so kindly pointed out that Kim Kardashian, the closest thing to AI human perfection, may have a sixth toe. And I’ll be damned if that kind of statement is made on my watch without further investigation. This is the life of an entertainment journalist, y’all, and I’m just living it. 

It all started with this tweet from Demi.

I found ze 6 toed bandit #bachelorinparadise

— Demi Burnett (@demi_burnett) August 19, 2019

The photo in question is from Kim’s fragrance collaboration with Kylie Jenner, and it looks like we have some damning evidence here.  In the zoomed in pic of Kim’s feet, you can clearly count six toes (I know that because I’ve done it while squinting roughly 17 times).

Dun,dun,dun #extremecloseup

— Ginger (@whatasheila) August 19, 2019

Whether they are her actual toes or just the side effects of some botched Photoshop, I’m not sure. But I’m going to find out…

Which brings me to our next photo of our sweet little Kimberly showing off ALL SIX OF HER TOES (???!!!) in a pair of flip flops.

6!! ?

— Letisha Huertas (@316Letty) August 19, 2019

You’d think if she actually was rocking an extra toe, she’d opt for a less revealing shoe, but we all know Kim, she’s all about embracing her flaws. That’s why she’s completely natural and never edits her pics! JK, but you would think that if this were true, she would definitely Photoshop that out. Like, having any visible pores is a no-no, but an extra digit is? Weird place to draw the line, Kim.

Just when I thought I had everything figured out about Kim’s toe count, I stumbled upon this random photo from 2018. Sadly for us six-toe hopefuls, you can see she has five toes on each foot. You can see she’s lifting her feet up, almost as if she’s saying, “Just five toes. Nothing to see here.” A little preemptive strike, I dig it.

Is it just me or is there a slight indent where the sixth toe has appeared in the other photos? Could it be that since this is an up close and personal pic of Kim’s toes (totally normal), lucky number six might’ve been conveniently Photoshopped out? 

That wasn’t the first time Kim gave fans an inside look at her feet. Back in 2013 when she was pregnant with her daughter North, she shared this gem. After getting past the fact that her feet are swollen as f*ck, I invite you to join me in counting her toes. One, two, three, four, FIVE ON EACH.

Swollen feet or a new Givenchy tattoo?

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

So what the hell is going on here? Well, I’ve crunched the numbers and analyzed the data and came to the following conclusions. It’s possible that Kim just sucks at Photoshop (which we know to be true) and is just giving herself extra digits. (Khloé has done it before.)

However, the more likely option is that there’s a good chance she just has a bunion on her foot which masquerades as a sixth toe, depending on the angle you’re looking from. As one Twitter user pointed out with this photo of Kim on a jet ski, you can see five toes with toenails followed by a nail-less bulge on the side of her foot. 


— morgan (@morgannnnlynch) August 19, 2019

So there you have it, guys. Five toes. One bunion. Countless bad Photoshop jobs. My work here is done. If anyone needs me, I’ll be analyzing photos of Kendall Jenner’s belly button.

Photoshop Fail Of The Week: Just Say No To Facetune

Hi everyone! I’m glad you all liked the GIF from last week’s fail, but keep in mind that only works if I can find the original, unedited photo. Sooo, if you find a Photoshop Fail that’s posted from an event, let me know and I can grab the original pap photo to do that with! For personal photos, we never get to see the originals. Boo.

For this week’s Photoshop Fail, we’re actually to discuss why Facetune is awful, and you should not use it. Seriously, please stop. It’s a scary, scary place. I mean, only refrain from using it if you want to look like a human person as opposed to a creature from Alien v Predator.

Look, he doesn’t have a nose either!

A regular Photoshop/Facetune cautionary tale, Kim Kardashian just posted this:

? by North West

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

Let’s just look at these faces close up.

Who is this person? Is she aware her lips are 1/4 of her entire face AND incredibly lopsided? Is this the epic fail of a surgeon? God, I hope not. You can also see a slice of her lip cutting into the skin above it? Also, it looks like her nose has been sliced horizontally across? Like, the bridge doesn’t match the rest of it? Not to mention, it’s a teeny tiny little non-nose? And her eyes are pulled at a strange angle, like she’s recently had a very bad face lift (huge possibility, tbh).

Now let’s get to Kim.

Miss KKW herself, looking as plastic as ever. In addition to her scary skin texture, she looks like she has blowup doll lips? I know this woman has had a lot of work done, but yikes. Also, she didn’t give herself a crazy eye lift, but she definitely made her eyes larger and sparkly, and in it, accidentally streaked her eye skin in a super strange line. In fact, they all have scary sparkly eyes. What is with that edit? I’m not sure what she’s done to her nose, but not only is it jutting out at an abnormal angle, she’s somehow managed to make it look like three bulbous sections? Like when they teach you to draw hills in elementary school?

But it gets more concerning still.

WHO is this poor lady? What did North do to her? (Apparently North was the photographer.) Her lips, especially that top lip, are soooo crooked and warped. She has no bow or indent in her lip, it’s literally just a big hunk of top lip. Her eyes are all angles, again like a bad face lift. And her smile line on the right side is WAY too far from her lips, like she’s The Joker. And somehow, her earring on her right side was blended INSIDE of her cheekbone? It looks like she’s pierced a hoop earring into her cheek? And the other side her face/neck and the earring have now become one.

But most offensively, this woman’s nose as been reduced to a rectangle. Apparently she’s waiting to audition for Bob’s Burgers.

I really don’t understand the sparkly eye Factune edit; it never looks natural. It’s like that bad Snapchat filter. All these women are seriously posting pics like this, thinking it’s attractive:

For the most part, it doesn’t seem like their bodies were super warped, more just that they dressed in flattering outfits (ALWAYS the way to go). Except for this:

Kim gave herself a scary tiny bicep that pales in comparison to her huge forearm. Yes, some of it is perspective. But the blurring shows a little of Kim’s skintone OUTSIDE of the arm too. It’s a scary little arm that reminds me of that guy from Scary Movie.

Another Photoshop Fail for Kim Kardashian, you go Kim Kardashian! But really, just please delete Facetune, you are scaring the children.

Kim Kardashian Dragged A Lookalike Who Tried To Use Her For Publicity

In today’s edition of random thots of Instagram causing petty drama, we’re talking about Kami Osman. If that name doesn’t sound familiar, it’s because she literally doesn’t matter. She has 700,000 Instagram followers, and her bio says she’s a singer and songwriter (she doesn’t have a Spotify page), but the only important thing about her is that she looks like Kim Kardashian. In fact, she looks so much like Kim K that she literally appeared on an episode of KUWTK as a Kim lookalike. But this week, instead of getting more surgeries to look like Kim, Kami decided to start some drama with Kim on Instagram. This is the sh*t I live for.

Earlier this week, Kami reposted a picture of this dress, which she wore in March 2018 for her birthday, on her Instagram story:

coming for the throne.

A post shared by ?? (@kamiosman) on

Along with the picture, she wrote “Got a lot of DM’s in regards to the MET look that was painfully similar to my last years bday dress. Never get confused with who ‘inspires’ who. They wont give you credit but they will copy. I designed this dress for my birthday last year. Nobody had a dress like this was an original design.” Sorry for the spelling and grammar issues, but I really wanted Kami to speak for herself.

She is, of course, referring to Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala afterparty look from this year, which was designer for her by Thierry Mugler:

Camp Crystal Girl!!! ??? Moiré printed latex with the crystal drip ?Another new creation [email protected] Manfred Thierry Mugler for Kim Kardashian West / MET BALL 2019 with Mugler Fashion House. Revisited archive pieces for Mugler Fashion House @muglerofficial

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

Hmm. Do the two dresses look similar? Sure! They both have an unusually low neckline that casually exposes the belly button, they’re both sparkly, and they’re both v short. Other than the fact that Kami’s looks like FashionNova and Kim’s is couture, I definitely see the resemblance. The problem with Kami’s argument is that Kim’s dress is literally a replica of something Cher wore decades ago.

Luckily, Diet Prada (one of the best accounts on Instagram), helped us out by posting the exact Cher look that was used as inspiration. Sorry Kami, but you seriously should’ve stayed in your lane here.

View this post on Instagram

Yesterday on Instagram stories, @kimkardashian doppelgänger @kamiosman (yes, she was featured on KUWTK as a lookalike) seemed to be suggesting that Kim copied a dress she had made for her birthday last year, but wasn’t Kim’s @manfredthierrymugler Met Gala after party lewk inspired by Cher? • #kuwtk #kimkardashian #kardashian #kamiosman #kamillaosman #lookalike #doppleganger #mugler #thierrymugler #metgala #cher #afterparty #bling #sparkle #fringe #wig #beads #latex #moire #embellishment #bodycon #yeezy #calvinklein #mycalvins #animalprint #leopard #snakeskin #wiwt #ootd #dietprada

A post shared by Diet Prada ™ (@diet_prada) on

But this story gets even better, because both Kim and Kami responded to the drama via their Instagram stories. First, Kim came for Kami by posting a series of photos of Cher and past Mugler looks that were used as inspiration for her Met Gala dress, solidly proving that Kami’s birthday dress had absolutely nothing to do with the design process. Then, in classic Kim style, she finished things off with one of the best clap backs I’ve ever seen:

NOT. ON. MY. MOOD. BOARD. From now on, this is going to be my response whenever I don’t have time for someone’s bullsh*t. My friend wants to bring her weird new boyfriend to happy hour? Sorry, that’s #NotOnMyMoodBoard. You’re not drinking for six weeks because your “doctor” told you to “take a break”? Nope, #NotOnMyMoodBoard. It works in basically any situation, and I’m so glad petty queen Kim commented on this situation.

Of course, Kami had to attempt some damage control on her Instagram story, and she took the route of pretending that she cooked up this whole scandal just to get publicity for herself.

Okay, so this actually wouldn’t have been a terrible plan, except for the fact that Kami now looks like a thirsty clown who was just desperate for 10 seconds in the spotlight. It’s definitely gotten her a lot of publicity, but she hasn’t seen an unusually large spike in followers in the couple of days since she first posted her Instagram story about Kim ripping off her dress.

While Kim has been rightfully called out for copying designs in the past, this was definitely an instance of a thirst monster just trying to use her for a little bit of press. Honestly, I’ve basically already forgotten who Kami Osman is, but good for her for putting herself out there. Too bad she’s #NotOnMyMoodBoard.

Wait, Why Is Kim Kardashian Feuding With Jack In The Box?

In recent years, the customer service industry has seen a major shift. We’re all sick of calling helplines and being put on hold for two hours before speaking to a robot, so we’ve taken to Twitter to voice our concerns. If your flight is canceled, tweeting angrily at an airline is honestly the best route to getting your situation figured out. Just like the rest of us, celebrities experience poor customer service, and surprisingly, it seems like they don’t have some special, secret channel to get these things sorted out. Instead, they just tweet at Jack in the Box to fix their problems.

Back in January, Gigi Hadid became the laughing stock of the internet when she decided to put Postmates on blast on her Twitter. Unlike normal people, Gigi has plenty of money to send her own personal assistant to pick up her food, so it felt petty and unnecessary for her to complain. Yesterday afternoon, Kim Kardashian hopped on Twitter with some strongly worded thoughts about Jack in the Box, but was she actually using her power for the greater good? Let’s analyze what went down.

Hey, Jack In The Box I have a serious complaint but I won’t fully put you on blast, check your corporate email inbox or send me a DM with direct person for my team to contact. Pronto!

— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 20, 2019

In her first tweet, Kim thoughtfully notes that she doesn’t want to fully put Jack in the Box on blast, but I feel like she kinda already did? Idk, tweeting to 60 million followers that you don’t want to put someone on blast is only slightly better than actually putting them on blast. That’s just how the rules of blasting work. This is basically the equivalent of sending an email to your whole company asking one specific coworker to please get back to you ASAP. Even if it’s important, you still look like the petty one.

While Kim was deliberately vague about what Jack in the Box did wrong, one theory immediately came to mind:

When they charge you for extra sauce

— Betches (@betchesluvthis) May 20, 2019

Did they get Kim’s order wrong at the drive thru? Did Kanye’s kids meal not come with the right toy? Did they not adhere to some crazy specific dietary restriction that Psalm West already has? I feel like Kim Kardashian is not an easy person to please, so there are literally seven million things that could have gone wrong at Jack in the Box to make her pop off. Maybe the restaurant’s design aesthetic wasn’t minimalist enough for her? I could keep coming up with these all day, but then Kim tweeted an important clarification:

I would like to add that this is not about me or a wrong order. Nobody recognized me and it’s something that I observed that affected other customers at this particular location that was concerning.

— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 20, 2019

This isn’t petty, selfish Kim. It’s wannabe lawyer, free the people, Good Samaritan Kim! This version of Kim is honestly my favorite. They should make a Marvel movie about her. She’s like Captain America, just with better style and a more impressive handbag collection. I’ll be honest, now I’m even more curious to know what grave injustice was going on at an unspecified Jack in the Box location, probably in Los Angeles. Was someone in danger? Were there bugs in the food? Was the bathroom out of toilet paper??? We may never know, but at least we can rest easy knowing that Captain Kim did everything she could.

Luckily, Kim got back to us a few short hours later, assuring us that Jack in the Box got back to her and fixed the problem. Thank god, because I would not have been able to sleep without this update. Someone at the Calabasas Jack in the Box probably got fired over this, but at least now the bathroom soap dispensers will be refilled in a timely manner.

Thank you @JackBox for the quick response and handling the situation!

— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 21, 2019

While this whole situation definitely entertained me for the better part of an afternoon, I’ve gotta say that my favorite celebrity tweet about a customer service experience still belongs to SZA tweeting about Sephora from a few weeks ago:

Lmao Sandy Sephora location 614 Calabasas called security to make sure I wasn’t stealing . We had a long talk. U have a blessed day Sandy

— SZA (@sza) May 1, 2019

Hello, yes, 911, can you please send someone to go check on Sandy? While celebrities complaining about normal person things is usually annoying, I’m obsessed with SZA tweeting this. She really dragged Sandy from Sephora location 614 Calabasas to hell and back.

Meanwhile, Captain Kim is probably roaming around other fast food locations in the Greater Los Angeles Area, looking for injustices that need to be stopped. God bless Kim, our Avenger queen.

What Is Labiaplasty, And Why Are Women Getting It?

I’ve got a fine relationship with my vagina. To be honest, before this article I had not given it much thought. It’s there, it does what it needs to do, and I carry on with my life. But for some women, how their vulva looks and feels causes them major stress. That’s where labiaplasty comes in. For some people, when they hear about a labiaplasty, they think (logically) “okay, yeah, plastic surgery for your labia.” For others, when they hear it, their first reaction is “WTF.” But whether you’ve heard about a labiaplasty before or not, I’m sure you have some questions and probably some misconceptions that I plan to debunk. But let’s get one thing straight: labiaplasty is NOT a millennial-geared surgery to promote altering your body for purely aesthetic reasons to look like a Victoria’s Secret Model or porn star. It can be done for aesthetic purposes, but there are also legit medical reasons for this.

I Spoke To An Expert

For this taboo and rarely-spoken-about topic, I called in the big guns, Dr. Lara Devgan. She is ranked as the #1 female cosmetic surgeon in New York on Rate MDs, and tbh, that’s good enough for me. But, according to her website, she is also a “board-certified, Yale-educated, Johns Hopkins Medical School-instructed, and Columbia/ New York Presbyterian Hospital-trained plastic & reconstructive surgeon.” Dr. Devgan is everything my Jewish parents wished I’d grown up to be, but here I am, writing about vaginas on the internet. Sorry, mom and dad. Did I mention she’s Kim K’s plastic surgeon?

A post shared by Dr. Lara Devgan, MD, MPH, FACS (@laradevganmd) on

WTF Is Labiaplasty?

Dr. Devgan explains labiaplasty as “cosmetic rejuvenation of the female genitalia.” Put simply (thanks Google), a labiaplasty is “plastic surgery performed to alter the appearance of the labia, typically the labia minora, or to construct labia.” So at this point in your life, if you don’t know the difference between your labia minora and labia majora, we’ve got an issue. Go back to health class, then come back to this article. Just kidding! I’ll tell you. The labia minora are the inner lips, and the majora are the outer lips.

Why Would Someone Do This?

Dr. Devgan explains that this surgery is performed for functional and/or cosmetic reasons. Many women who opt for this surgery are either unhappy and self-conscious about how their genitals look or they experience friction or discomfort from exercise, clothing, or sex. Furthermore, the excess tissue that may hang below the rest of the vulva can mess with the vagina’s normal flora and cause frequent yeast infections. Dr. Devgan says that this is one of the fastest growing plastic surgery procedures in the US and one of the more common surgeries she performs.

How Does The Surgery Work?

Because every woman is different, it really depends on the individual needs of the patient. Dr. Devgan explains that “the exact maneuvers we do in surgery depends on a woman and her unique anatomic characteristics and concerns.” However, most surgery is performed under local anesthetic (you are awake and your vajayjay is just numbed) and takes about 30 to 45 minutes. For some in-depth diagrams to explain the surgery, check out Dr. Devgan’s website.

The Recovery Time

Labiaplasty tends to be minimally painful—think less than painful than watching Colton confess his love for Cassie and her leave. But don’t worry, the doc still gives her patients pain meds just in case. Dr. Devgan says that most of her patients take 4 to 7 days off work, although she has had women go back to work the next day. She recommends taking the first 3 days to ice the area with pelvic elevation. Dr. Devgan recommends no sex, tampons, or strenuous activities for at least 6 weeks. The scars are v minimal and usually disappear to be almost invisible, to the point where your gyno or SO won’t notice them.

How Will It Impact Your Life

For women who have lived their lives feeling self-conscious of how they look, it can be a life-changing surgery. Dr. Devgan says, “patient satisfaction for this procedure is extremely high.” For Dr. Devgan, it is “one of the most gratifying procedures” and she commonly hears, “wow, I should have done this sooner” from her patients. Patients can wear jeans and won’t be uncomfortable or feel that they constantly need to re-adjust themselves. They can wear bathing suits without feeling embarrassed that someone can see their labia. Dr. Devgan explains that it will not interfere with giving birth vaginally in the future, with orgasms, arousal, or using the restroom. But it can make sex more comfortable and enjoyable.

The Bottom Line

As Dr. Devgan said, a labiaplasty is not a “sexy surgery” nor is it a “porn surgery.” In fact, a small study published in 2016 found that women who had undergone labiaplasty were just as likely to have done so for improved appearance and sexual performance as they were for “practical” reasons, like physical discomfort. (But honestly, who’s to say that wanting to feel more secure about your appearance isn’t practical?) This surgery might seem weird to talk about, but it shouldn’t be. Let’s be real, if men had a similar issue, it would not be such a taboo topic. Dr. Devgan says, “if some meaningful percentage of the male population had an issue where skin on their testicles was impeding on their abilities to conduct their normal lives, it would be a front and center topic that was totally acceptable and totally covered.” The bottom line is, if you’re considering getting labiaplasty, you shouldn’t be ashamed to talk about it with a trusted surgeon. And if you’re perfectly happy with your lady parts and don’t want to change it, that’s great too.

For any further questions, Dr. Devgan’s website provides a ton of information and before and after pictures (which are honestly so impressive). And you can follow her on Instagram at @laradevganmd.

An Investigation Into Who Is Leaking Kim Kardashian’s Looks

While the past 24 hours have been completely taken over by the news of Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson hooking up (allegedly), that’s not all that’s been happening in the Kardashian universe. This week, Kim Kardashian has also been dealing with a scandal of her own, and I’m here to get to the bottom of it. In recent years, it’s become a huge trend for fast fashion websites like Fashion Nova and MissGuided to create inexpensive replicas of outfits that celebrities wear. The Kardashians and Jenners are some of the most-copied celebs, and these stores put in overtime to get the dupe designs up for sale as quickly as possible. Today, we’re talking about the biggest Kardashian mystery of 2019, at least for now: who is leaking Kim Kardashian’s outfits?

The Crime

On Sunday night, Kim Kardashian attended the Hollywood Beauty Awards in a dramatic dress that was vintage Mugler couture dress from 1998. Not everyone loved the, um, dramatic boob cutouts on the dress, but there was no denying it was a major statement. Interestingly enough, Fashion Nova put up a version of the dress for preorder within minutes of Kim stepping out in the look. This didn’t seem that strange, because these brands could just show a virtual mockup of the dress and then make it later. But the story got more complicated when fashion account @diet_prada, who is notorious for exposing industry drama, found proofs from a previous Fashion Nova photoshoot featuring the dress.

UPDATE: See “MUGLER” story highlight for a screenshot of the date of the Capture One session (it’s labeled 02-14-19). Fashion Nova Mugler knockoff shot 4 days before Kim wore it on 02/18/19. Kim, you’ll never fess up to your sneaky lil collaborations, but we got all the receipts ?. • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At some point recently, a fast fashion photo shoot happened featuring a vintage Mugler dress that @kimkardashian just happened to wear on Sunday night to the Hollywood Beauty Awards…and yes, it appears to be a real dress, not photoshop. Ahead of Fashion Nova releasing the dress at 9pm EST tonight, house model Yodit Yemane may or may not have accidentally leaked a story 2.5 hours earlier of photo options from her shoot featuring the Mugler replica. The file names were even labeled “Kim dress” while it’s now being called “Winning Beauty Cut Out Gown” lol. This begs the question: Did Fashion Nova whip up the dress overnight in their Los Angeles atelier after seeing Kim in it or is she peddling her vintage finds to mass retailers ahead of debuting them for a calculated, timely release? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ? : Getty • #kimkardashian #mugler #thierrymugler #manfredthierrymugler #bodycon #cutout #barelythere #strappy #straps #black #vintage #dress #velvet #fashionnova #wiwt #ootd #kuwtk #hollywood #beauty #kkwbeauty #kardashian #ecommerce #shady #smh #photoshoot #model #fashionmodel #dietprada

The date on the files is 02-14-19, which was days before Kim wore the dress in public. Also, the file has “Kim dress” in the name, so there’s no way it was just a random coincidence that Fashion Nova decided to make that dress. Basically, someone must have leaked the look ahead of time, and we need to know who it was. People were quick to accuse Kim of having an under-the-table deal with these brands, but yesterday, she took to Twitter and Instagram to vehemently deny the claims:

That’s a whole mouthful to get through, but Kim is essentially saying that she values her relationships with designers, and she would never make a deal to undercut their hard work. Another interesting wrench in this story happened earlier this month, when Kim posted the photo below:

Going through old fitting pics & found this gold look that Kanye made for me for my Miami trip last summer (I went w the neon vibes instead) P.S. fast fashion brands, can you please wait until I wear this in real life before you knock it off? ?

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

Kim makes a big show of asking the fast fashion brands to wait before ripping off her look, which, of course, MissGuided did just hours later. So while Kim claims to be working hard to stop this kind of situation from happening, who is really to blame? I have some ideas.

The Suspects

Kim Kardashian West: Let’s be real. Despite Kim’s insistence that she has no relationship with Fashion Nova or any other fast fashion brands, I wouldn’t be surprised. I understand that her relationships with designers are important to her, but she could also be making a sh*tload of money by leaking these looks. No matter what she says, it’s a good thing for her that people want to dress like her.

Kris Jenner: Even if Kim is telling the truth, her momager might be going behind her back. Kris has always been a supportive mom, but maybe she’s tired of just getting a 10% cut from her daughters’ deals. A sneaky Fashion Nova deal would be the perfect way for her to make some nice pocket change without cutting Kim a check.

Jordyn Woods: I wasn’t even going to include Jordyn on this list originally, but things have obviously changed. Could her alleged hookup with Tristan Thompson have been a diversion tactic from more devious business practices? Jordyn’s Instagram page is basically one big ad for these fast fashion companies, so maybe they were sliding her some extra cash for deets on her family’s upcoming outfits. I hope she was saving that money under her mattress, because her life is going to look a lot different now that Kylie’s not paying for everything.

North West: Kids these days are scary good with technology, so I have no doubt that North could steal mommy’s iPhone and AirDrop MissGuided some photos from Kim’s fittings. I’ve always had a sneaking suspicion that North is the smartest person in that family, so maybe she’s playing the long game to take over the Kardashian empire.

I didn’t have the heart to tell her she had it on backwards.

Jonathan Cheban: When it comes to Foodgod and his parasitic friendship with the Kardashian family, I’ve always smelled a rat. Maybe I’m personally biased because he blocked me on Instagram (long story), but I wouldn’t put it past him to hack into Kim’s iCloud and take some screenshots. I don’t know what Kim sees in him, but she’s kept him around for far too long.

its nice that kanye gave jonathan cheban a job

The Verdict

At this point, it’s too soon to say who’s really to blame. We might never know, but I have a feeling that sooner or later this whole fast fashion game is going to come crashing down. I’m sure designers are itching to sue these sites for copying their designs, and Kim Kardashian’s fashion mole has to be feeling the heat. If the leaks stop now all of a sudden, we definitely know that it was Jordyn. Otherwise, we’ll have to wait and see who makes the next move. This is like the fashion Hunger Games, and you know Kim isn’t going to let anyone else win.
