Khloe Kardashian Gets in ‘Shape,’ Criticizes “Simple” Magazine Cover

Khloe Kardashian has whipped herself into Shape—literally.

The reality television star, who was once referred to as “the fat one” next to her equally famous sister Kim and Kourtney, is the new cover girl for the May issue of Shape magazine.

While the 31-year-old says via her twitter account that she is “thrilled” to be on the cover of the coveted magazine, she—like many other celebrities (Zendaya, Keri Washington) — was not too fond of the final photo chosen on the cover. “Love Shape mag & I’m thrilled to be on the cover but we took so many better cover images,” she posted on her Twitter page on Tuesday. “I wish they would have used the other set ups over that simple grey look,” she vented. Despite Kardashian’s thoughts on the editorial team’s choice in photo direction, she felt it was “crazy” that she was on such a well-respected health and exercise publication. “How f***ing crazy that me… ‘The fat one’ is on the cover of Shape!!! Ha!” She wrote. The magazine cover art that Shape green-lighted shows off Kardashian’s slimmed-down body in a grey leotard as she is all smiles carefree. Sitting down one-on-one with the magazine, Kardashian revealed that she dresses up even to go to the gym.

“Just because you’re going to work out, you don’t have to look like a slob,’ she said.

“When I buy a cute outfit, I’m super excited to go to the gym the next day. And when I look good at the gym, I’m inspired to do an extra squat or an extra lunge.”

For most women, going to the gym means little to no makeup, no earrings and sweats. But, for this Kardashian, that is unacceptable.

“I also always wear hoop earrings; they’re like my security blanket,” she said. “I also wear makeup when I work out. I put on a tinted moisturizer, mascara, and cherry lip balm, and fill in my eyebrows. If I feel cuter with a little lip color and mascara, why should anybody else care?”

Kardashian, who also is a radio star and has countless fashion businesses, has lost 35 pounds after hitting the gym consistently and getting on a vegan diet, according to the Daily Mail.

“I work hard in the gym to get it. But I also loved my shape before, when I was even curvier,” Kardashian said.

“I feel empowered and badass that I was able to accomplish everything I have.”
