Kim Kardashian got well and truly mobbed by paparazzi as she arrived at LAX airport yesterday. And through those resulting photographers, the blogosphere and webternetz went nuts because she had a brand-new look. Kimmy’s hair was much shorter and she had bangs, so boom … you know the headlines. She had also given a little sneak peak on Twitter before, with a photograph captioned as, “Fun shoot today chrismcmillan He just can’t control his scissor hands!” complete with the succinct hashtag, bangs. The truth of the matter, as revealed earlier today, is that the whole thing’s a fake. Of course it is, and of course Kim played it up and let all the news fly around about her for a day before the “haha, joke’s on you” moment. A tweet saying, “these are fake” opened to her Celebuzz page to a post that read, “The Truth About The Bangs.” The explanation reads, “I saw a few of you tweeting me about my bangs!! The bangs are fake! Just clip ons! I had a fun Cosmo cover shoot yesterday and Chris McMillan clipped these on!” Clever again, Kimmy. Letting the world know you’re going to be on the cover of Cosmopolitan.
But here’s the thing. We actually wish she’d chop her hair to this style. The length and the bangs really suit her and she looks years younger. She also doesn’t have makeup caked-on, so we can actually see her face. And we like what we see. Cut the hair for real, Kim! What do you guys think?
