When Kim Went Back to Brown

After spending the first few weeks of the year as a honey-highlighted blonde, Kim decided to revisit her brunette roots in February 2014. While we loved the look, she was vocal about missing her light hair, asking fans on Mobio INsider for help: "I'm so annoyed I dyed my hair dark! I wanted to switch it up since I feel everyone went light, and we started filming a new season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, so wanted a fresh look. BUT now I am missing my light hair! HELP!!! What do I do? Go light again or stay dark and get used to it?" And as the story goes, she reverted back to her brown roots.

Maybe it was her comments about missing the blond that made us believe her fake makeover, but Kim's blond wig duped the rest of the Internet, too! After stepping out in New York with the faux style, she even went so far as to thank her hairstylist Serge Normant — now that's a convincing act.

When Kylie Metamorphosed Like a Butterfly

This past year, Kylie Jenner really grew up and transformed, and her new look made her a bona fide beauty icon. The A-list teenager ditched her brunette layers for bright hues and extensions, then showed her true Kardashian colors by contouring her face. Perhaps most noticeably, though, Kylie's formerly thin lips took on an impressively pouty new appearance.

While the tabloids and fashion magazines speculated that Kylie had gotten injections to achieve her signature bee-stung lips, she was so over the conversation about her plumped-up pout. While Kylie has remained relatively mum on the topic, Kim claims that her little sister is an expert at lining and shaping her lips with a pencil.

Kylie's lips didn't just start a beauty movement on Instagram . . . her own family has been copying her style! When Khloé Kardashian started sporting a similarly plump pout in late 2014, the two sisters got all of Hollywood buzzing about rumored cosmetic procedures in the family.

When Kim's Vogue Spread Proved the Haters Wrong

There was a lot of controversy about Kim and Kanye West making the cover of Vogue, but Kim's on-point hair and makeup shut down any doubtful fashionistas. Her tasteful smoky eye, understated bun, and simple manicure allowed gorgeous clothing to stand out in the fashion publication's Kimye issue.

When Kim Redefined Bridal Beauty

Kim's entire bridal look was perfect, but her flawless hair, makeup, and skin really got us talking. A few of our favorite highlights from the big day are that the glowing bride accentuated her prominent cheekbones with contouring, wore her glossy black hair straight down her back, and let her ring do the talking with a neutral manicure. Was Kanye the secret stylist behind her wedding style?

When Kylie Broke All the Rules

While the Kardashians are not musicians, we adored it when Kylie showed up to the American Music Awards in a getup that broke some serious beauty rules. Most teens couldn't sport falsies and dark lips without appearing overdone, but Kylie nailed the look without resembling a child's game of dress up.
