Countless stylists around the world dream of the opportunity to work with a star like Khloe Kardashian – but that certainly wasn’t always the case.
The 31-year-old revealed to harpers BAZAAR.com that before her 40lbs weight loss, stylists would often refuse to work with her.
Khloe – who also posed for a stunning pared back photo shoot for the publication – explained: ‘Other people actually said, “I just can’t work with you” – because I was too big. That always hurt my feelings.’
Khloe has kept the same stylist, Monica Rose, since the first season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but she said that she has received a lot more attention since slimming down.
‘I definitely think the fashion industry, and people in general, look at me more now that I’ve lost weight,’ she told Harper’s.
While Khloe is a lot more confident in herself these days, she still finds it hard to brush off cruel comments on social media.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star said that trolls on Instagram still get to her, even when she receives a lot of kind comments too.
‘What’s sad is that I can read 10 beautiful comments and then one bad one and I’m like, “Ugh!”‘ she admitted.
Khloe has shed nearly 40lbs since turning to fitness as a way to help her through the breakdown of her marriage to Lamar Odom in 2013, and she now works out almost every day.
‘My home was dark and toxic,’ she confessed. ‘At the time, my family didn’t know what I was going through. It was the biggest secret I’ve kept. I just needed a place to go.’
The beauty often shares workout tips and videos on her app, and released the book Strong Looks Better Naked last year.
