Kylie Jenner responds to Timothée Chalamet's style influencer claim

Kylie Jenner has addressed speculation that boyfriend Timothée Chalamet is her fashion muse. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was recently asked about fan speculation during an interview with The New York Times .

The interviewer cited Jenner's recent "puff-sleeved 'cottagecore' maxi dress" as an example of her evolving style, but Jenner denied Chalamet's role in it — and evaded questioning. "I don't know how I feel about it," she said. "I just don't want to talk about personal things." She added that she had not heard the rumors and generally did not follow speculation about her personal life.

But she admits another person influenced her style: her son Al Webster. "After giving birth, it took me a while to get back to normal," she told the outlet. "Then you get your body back and you think, 'Wait a minute, the tide has changed.'"

Jenner also responded to social media comments about her appearance, revealing she is no longer bothered by plastic surgery rumors. "For years I felt like I wasn't accepted for my face or my appearance," she said. "No one can say anything to hurt me now."

On Reddit, fans of the couple have been debating whether the "Dune" star led to her change in style.

"I think she realizes her old style is a bit 'dated' for young people and she has products to sell," one fan commented, while another chimed in, "The whole 'clean' thing Girls', more natural, simple style is that's why Sofia Richie became a trending topic on TikTok last year. I'm sure she realized she needed to change."

Jenner and Chalamet were first romantically linked in April 2023. Their relationship was confirmed five months later when they were spotted showing some serious PDA at a Beyoncé concert. After a series of public appearances, the two attended the 2024 Golden Globe Awards in January and shared a kiss.
