Kylie Jenner addresses rumors she’s ‘stripping down’ her style for Timothée Chalamet

Kylie Jenner is going back to basics.

The “Kardashians” star sat down with the New York Times to chat about her latest business ventures on Thursday and also spoke about her style evolution, including the rumors that she toned down her signature “King Kylie” aesthetic after she began dating Timothée Chalamet.

Jenner, 26, has always been known for her larger-than-life looks: big hair, big lips, big booty. But after being linked to the “Wonka” actor in April 2023, she’s gone through a bit of a makeunder, wearing softer, more romantic styles and less makeup.

“I don’t have this thick mane down to my butt, I don’t have lash extensions, I don’t have these long claws,” Jenner told the New York Times, admitting she was “stripping down a little bit” when it came to her look.

When asked what she thought about the rumors that her new style had to do with Chalamet, the Kylie Cosmetics founder stayed mum.

“I don’t know how I feel about that,” she said. “I just don’t want to talk about personal things.”

Although split rumors have been swirling around the couple in recent days, Jenner declined to mention the “Dune” actor in the interview; she did share, however, that she started to second-guess her style after her son, Aire, turned 1.

“It takes me a while after I have a baby to feel like myself again,” Jenner said, adding, “you get your body back, and you’re like, ‘Wait, the trends have changed.’”

Fans were quick to notice that her usual body-baring looks were being replaced with simpler styles, like a plain black T-shirt and jeans she wore for an outing with Chalamet at the 2023 US Open.

The Khy founder — who debuted a surprisingly short haircut in February — even addressed the rumors in a tongue-in-cheek TikTok, stating she was “having a little break from slaying.”

Makeover aside, Jenner has had quite the busy week; along with releasing a new fragrance dubbed Cosmic, she’s launched a new line of sparkling vodka soda called Sprinter.

If we know Kylie, this is the only the beginning of her evolution.
