Kim Kardashian looked stunning in blue at the Oscars in 2022, but people are already comparing her paparazzi photographs to her ‘unrealistic’ Instagram feed.
The Oscars after-party put on a show that rivalled the genuine red carpet, and the internet was there to witness it.
With her polka-dot Off-White gown, Laura Harrier was a fan favourite; Michael B Jordan and Lori Harvey were couple goals; and Hunter Schafer exuded cool-girl vibes in her slinky Rick Owens denim dress.
The Kardashian-Jenners were in attendance, as usual, with Kendall and Kim dressed in Balenciaga. The sisters appeared to be beautiful as usual, but after Getty released Kim’s close-ups, fans slammed her for creating high expectation.
The founder of Skims had flawless makeup and hair, but as professional shots revealed her less-than-ideal skin, admirers couldn’t help but criticise her Instagram retouching habits.
Her skin may not be as flawless as it appears on social media, but she isn’t beaming.
What Did Fans Says About Kim’s Look?
“Kim should go light on the photoshop,” one Reddit user said in response to her edits. Users on Reddit compared her Oscars outfit to a snapshot she posted the day before.
“When you’re used to seeing smoothed filtered photographs, it’s a bit of a shock when we get a true image,” one individual wrote. In both shots, she looks stunning. But it’s not the same.”
“Feel the same way,” wrote another. I was astounded when I saw all of the Getty Images. It’s not that they’re unattractive without Photoshop. We’ve grown accustomed to seeing so much photoshop that the real-life version comes as a shock.”
True, her skin wasn’t picture-perfect at the Oscars, but with Instagram’s easy-to-use filters, celebrities can’t be blamed for using them now and then. In addition, the after-party images are shot using flash photography, but Kim is frequently photographed in favourable natural light for the ‘gramme.

One eagle-eyed follower saw her deformed leg and accused her of altering her images from her romantic trip to the Bahamas with beau Pete Davidson.
One of her Instagram followers told out that she had manipulated the shot so badly that her leg looked like an arm when she uploaded a series of images of her relaxing on a beach in a swimsuit.
Kim erased the image and re-uploaded her holiday snaps without the problematic photo after her followers commented on the Photoshop disaster.
“She looks FINE,” a third added. “They need to stop setting ridiculous standards for themselves.”
