Happy 18th Birthday, Kylie Jenner: Let's Look Back at Your Most Glorious Style Moments
In honor of the star's big birthday, we're looking back at some of her most stylish looks
You already know about the birthday Birkin, her new Ferrari from Tyga and her family-filled bash. Now let’s celebrate Kylie Jenner’s 18th birthday by looking back at her most memorable, wild, creative and out-of-the-box fashion choices.
Alex Apatoff, Senior Style Editor: In my opinion, Kylie’s finest style moments were her too-cute-for-the-red-carpet days, clad in matching outfits to her sister Kendall and being carried by her parents at glitzy Hollywood events. The hairbows, the velvet, the flats (which she’s now officially sworn off for life): it was all so sweet and innocent, taking us back to a blissful time before she showed off her duct-taped boobs on Snapchat and insisted that Caitlyn Jenner try out her line of hair extensions. Now Kylie would wear that dress as a top with high-waisted jorts and sky-high heels. Sigh. Were we ever so young?
Lindy Segal, Style Social Editor: Ready for this? Kylie’s Seventeen Prom cover is less than two years old! She looked totally adorable, and totally age-appropriate. (I love the girl, but she does not dress like an 18-year-old.) I’m not saying I want to see her in beaded prom dresses all the time, but I do miss Kylie’s typical-teenager days.
Colleen Kratofil, Style Writer-Reporter: Cannes Film Festival premieres and parties tend to bring out amazing fashion moments, and out of the sea of A-list stars, Kylie Jenner’s bra and underwear ensemble still stands out most in my mind. I think it’s because it really represents every fashion trend the birthday girl loves: sheer, cropped and very Kim Kardashian-esque.
Andrea Lavinthal, Style and Beauty Director: I didn’t think the day would ever come when Kylie would wear an outfit that I’d not only really like but would actually buy for myself. Despite the length of her shorts, the black-and-white Sass & Bide look she sported to pump gas (because, Kylie) was surprisingly sophisticated thanks to the tailored jacket and classic print, and I like how she styled it with a simple tank and minimalist heels.
Sarah Kinonen, Style & Beauty Editorial Assistant: Black and white has never looked more chic. While we’re used to seeing the starlet wear some of the plungiest, borderline over-the-top outfits both on and off the red carpet, I love this look because it’s a fresh take on the Kardashian-Jenner krew’s traditional skin-baring ensembles. The crop top and high-waisted leggings are youthful and fun, but when they’re paired with the crisp white coat and heels, Kylie manages to look a little more grown up and a lot more stylish.

Brittany Talarico, Style News Editor: The blue hair and matching blue nails. The plunging neckline. The Cartier love bracelet stack. The bodychain. This entire look is signature Kylie. The star constantly pushes the fashion and beauty envelope, and she’s unapologetic about her choices.
