This is positively splendid. Kim Kardashian posted a throwback photoÂ to celebrate younger sister Khloe Kardashian‘sÂ 30th birthdayÂ and they look like adorableÂ children from the Victorian era. The authentic-looking black and white photo (I don’t think anÂ Instagram filter has been used here)Â seems like the sort of thing that would be placed in a jeweled frame and carriedÂ around in Kris Jenner‘sÂ drawstring bag.
Aren’t they precious? This is one of the most squee-inducing celebrity child photos I have seen since Amanda Seyfried’s 1950s housewife throwbackÂ photo she posted for boyfriend Justin Long’s birthday.
By the looks of it, Khloe appears to be a secret curly-haired girlâ€“unless Kris permitted them to get perms at eight-years-old, which actually wouldn’t surprise me.Â Khloe’s curls are so full-bodied that they would make a wavy-hairedÂ Duggar sisterÂ jealous. And that comb over is the best one I have ever seen, with the exception of this very cute dog’s.Â Looking at this old photo makes me wonder why the Kardashians bother with extensions at all. IfÂ Khloe’s hair is still that thick, she could sell it to make extensions for thin-haired girls. (I hope I didn’tÂ give Kris another money-making idea.)
If we’re talking retro fashion, Khloe’sÂ black dress and white crocheted collarÂ only add to theÂ Victorian portrait miniature vibe. Though Kim’s short-sleeved dress with theÂ low neckline prove that this definitely a photo from the 1980s.Â Not to mention that this would a painting if it was actually from the Victorian era.
So Khloe, I wish you a vey modernÂ virtualÂ Happy Birthday. Best wishes and I hope you areÂ moreÂ appreciatedÂ this year.
