Kylie Jenner is addressing speculation that boyfriend Timothée Chalamet is her fashion muse. Speaking recently to The New York Times, the Kardashians star was asked about fan theories suggesting so.

The interviewer cited Jenner’s recent “puff-sleeve ‘cottagecore’ maxidress” as an example of her evolving style, but Jenner denied Chalamet’s role in it — and side-stepped the line of questioning. “I don’t know how I feel about that,” she said. “I just don’t want to talk about personal things.” She added that she hadn’t heard the rumors and generally doesn’t pay attention to speculation about her personal life.

But she admitted that a different person had influenced her style: her son, Aire Webster. “It takes me a while after I have a baby to feel like myself again,” she told the outlet. “Then you get your body back, and you’re like, ‘Wait, the trends have changed.’”

Jenner also addressed social media comments regarding her appearance, revealing that she’s no longer fazed by cosmetic procedure rumors. “It’s just years and years of not feeling like my face or looks are accepted,” she said. “There’s nothing anyone could ever say now that would hurt me.”

On Reddit, fans of the couple had been debating whether the Dune star brought about her changing style.

“I think she realized that her old style was kind of ‘outdated’ for the younger demographic and she has products to sell,” one fan commented, while another chimed in, “The whole ‘clean girl,’ more natural, minimal style is in, which is why Sofia Richie became the hot topic of TikTok last year. I’m sure she realized she needed to pivot.”

Jenner and Chalamet were first romantically linked back in April 2023. Their relationship was confirmed five months later when they were spotted showing some major PDA at a Beyoncé concert. Following a string of joint public appearances, the pair attended the 2024 Golden Globes in January, where they shared a kiss.
