Is Kim Kardashian Blonde Again?

by Rosie Narasaki

A certain reality TV star just made waves by posting a nude mirror selfie on Instagram — but, oddly enough, it's her hair that's making headlines, as opposed to her black bar-censored nudity. Quick, this is not a drill — is Kim Kardashian officially blonde again?

It's tough to say — after all, the picture could be a throwback to one of the last times she was blonde. She rather memorably went platinum for Paris Fashion Week last year (along with Jared Leto), and she was also briefly blonde back in 2013. That said, the snap didn't come accompanied with a #FBF or #TBT, so chances of it being a throwback are rather slim.

Even if it's not an older picture, though, there's always a chance she's wearing a wig. After all, she and all of her sisters (perhaps most notably the oft-mermaid-haired Kylie) are known for donning wigs when the fancy strikes them. Kendall even made recent headlines when she wore a blonde wig at the recent Balmain show (alongside her model BFF Gigi Hadid, who was sporting a brunette wig, which made for a nice, Freaky Friday-esque effect). Suffice it to say, the Kardashian-Jenner family is no stranger to wigdom.


I'll leave it up to you: Wig or no? New snap or throwback?

For reference, here's a peek at the last time she went blonde. This new shade seems a touch cooler, and her hair looks slightly shorter here as well.

I'm inclined to think it's a new picture paired with a wig, but it could really go pretty much either way, right? Any way you cut it, the picture serves nicely as an ultra-dramatic and nice way to show off her amazing confidence.
