We take a meandering journey through the different shapes the Kardashians have taken through the ages, both literally and figuratively. We look at the meanings behind the tropes upon which the family has built their career and the ways they are backtracking on that as they remove their BBLs and date tattooed white boys. We explore: • the context of how beauty standards have changed throughout the ages and what that has become today in the age of social media • the ways plastic surgery and beauty trends have gone and which cultures they borrow from • the morals that have been imposed on the debate over whether plastic surgery is valid or not. • pretty privilege • the defense of plastic surgery and exploring its downsides & ways people can become addicted to it References: The Age of Instagram Face: How social media, FaceTune, and plastic surgery created a single cyborgian look by Jia Tolentino
