While glamorous magazine shoots are par for the course for the reality TV star, this one was a little different. According to Kardashian’s captions, the whole shebang was a no-makeup, no-filter affair.
“We did the whole shoot without makeu … Theo [Wenner, photographer] gave me no direction & just wanted to capture me being me,” the 34-year-old explained in a caption, adding the hashtag #KimNoFilter.
Unshockingly, fans and online publishers lapped this up. We rarely see Kim Kardashian without her signature contouring and smokey eyeshadow, so anything less was always going to grab attention.
However, it seems the ‘makeup-free’ story has been foiled overnight, and it’s all thanks to the Kardashian family makeup artist/contouring wizard Mario Dedivanovic. He also shared some of the Vogue Spain snaps on Instagram, but his commentary told a slightly different story.
"I've worked on hundreds of shoots with Kim and I think this shoot might be my favorite ever. When I think of Kim this is how I see her in my mind. These images embody who she is to me - very calm, collected, peaceful. It's hard to explain, lol. #MakeupByMario #NoMakeupByMario #vogue," he captioned one image.
That's a nice sentiment and all, but it's the hashtags that have everyone talking: #NoMakeupByMario, #MakeupByMario. Uhh... anyone else perplexed by this? Is Dedivanovic claiming responsibility for not applying makeup to Kim's face?
One look at the comments on these Instagram snaps indicates that while some people are buying this #nomakeup business, many more calling BS on it. (Post continues after gallery.)
