It seems like just about every image Kim Kardashian puts online is under a microscope, analyzed by fans (and haters) for Photoshop, content, and commentary.
And her latest throwback, a school picture from her Catholic school days has sparked a conversation about the journey from sweet schoolgirl to where she is today. Needless to say, there’s a lot of judgement going on.
The photo, which the star captioned simply, “Catholic School Girl 8th Grade” shows KK with her dark tresses parted to the side, which isn’t her favored style of late, wearing lip gloss and a touch of mascara.
She’s wearing a school uniform shirt and a simple beaded necklace. There’s nothing particularly dated about the photo, and she doesn’t look that different 25 years later.
Kardashian likely posted the throwback photo as a nod to the theme of Monday night’s Met Ball, “Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” but some fans took it as an opportunity to hurl some pretty rude comments.
“This didn’t end well,” wrote one, possibly referring to the married mother of three’s sex tape.
Another made a value judgement, writing, “Catholic school girl. What happend to the values you learned in school?”
“So you don’t believe in God anymore, aye?” wrote another, perhaps implying that a perfume bottle of KK’s naked body is godless.
Other fans noted that the mogul’s natural beauty shone through even at a young age.
“Ok now I think Kim has natural awesome lips,” one commenter wrote. Another said, “So gorgeous at such a young age.”
“Bring back the baby hairs,” commenting on the edges Kardashian has said she regrets having removed permanently lasered off.
One even said, “This is actually the prettiest picture I’ve ever seen of Kim.”
And finally, one hilariously noted, “she looks a tad like the cash me outside girl.”
