One of the Kardashian-Jenner‘s biggest objectives in life is the pursuit of the perfect selfie. Though it may be perceived as narcissism, in fact, each sister is taking thousands of shots of themselves in the hopes that they will one day uncover the Holy Grail of their own visage. Kim has her collection of nudes, Khloé her ever-evolving lob, Kourtney her post-gym mirror shots, and Kendall, who gets paid to have her photo taken, might be the one person in this family exempt from the reflection obsession. But what is Kylie‘s selfie Shangri-la you ask? Why, cornrows and a bikini that seamlessly blends into her skin, naturally.
A bikini-clad selfie is undoubtedly Kylie Jenner’s happy place. A means of sharing her physique with her millions of followers without being so overt as to photograph herself totally in the buff. And if there’s anything Kylie loves more than her extensive assortment of two-pieces, it’s causing a minor scandal with her style choices, like debuting a head full of cornrows, for example.
In August of last year, Kylie posted a similar ab-baring selfie with cornrows and was quickly called out by actress Amandla Stenberg who commented on her photo, “when u appropriate black features and culture but fail to use ur position of power to help black Americans by directing attention towards your ur wigs instead of police brutality or racism #whitegirlsdoitbetter.” Clearly, Kylie wasn’t too bothered by that, continuing to unabashedly wear her braids, but thankfully, her SkinnyDip London avocado print phone case was in frame to lighten the whole mood.

It’s interesting that while Kim saves her nude selfies for sunlit-flooded marble and glass bathrooms in Paris, for Kylie any reflective service, including a bathroom you could easily find at your local Ramada Inn, will do. And while Kylie is having a monochromatic moment with her surrounding, she still manages to stand out in a big way.
