Kim Kardashian Herself Has Set An Unattainable Beauty Standard
Kim Kardashian, a well-known name in the beauty and fashion industry, has been idolized by millions of women worldwide for her iconic looks.

In a 2010 interview with ABC News, she admitted to trying Botox saying, “I’m not against cosmetic surgery. I’ve previously tried Botox. That’s the only thing that I’ve done,” but denied having any other plastic surgery procedures done.
However, she has since undergone various treatments, including laser cosmetic procedures for her body and face, and having her belly button tightened and stretch marks removed after giving birth to her children.
While a businesswoman has faced criticism for promoting unattainable beauty standards, she does not believe that is the case. She believes that her beauty standard is achievable, stating, “If I’m doing it, it’s attainable,” and that different people have various standards to follow. She explained.
“There are so many different beauty standards — whether it’s Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez, Marilyn Monroe.”
As a teenager, the model found beauty in everything and believed in being herself rather than mimicking what she saw on TV or in magazines. She revealed.
“When I was a teenager, [the look] was just blonde waifs, and then I saw Salma Hayek, who was so beautiful and had darker hair and darker skin and more curves. And she looked more like me. My mentality was never like, you see them on TV or in magazines and pick who you want to be. It was always: Be yourself, find beauty in everything.”
Despite criticism, Kardashian remains a significant influence in the beauty industry, inspiring many to follow her example.
