Kim Announces Why She Went Blonde, Causes an Internet Freakout

Kim Kardashian debuted her latest experimentation with blonde hair during the beginning of New York Fashion Week in September at the Tom Ford show. Whenever the mega-star switches up her look, fans go crazy and this time was no different.

“Seeing if blondes have more fun! Silver white hair vibes! It’s NYFW!” said Chris Appleton, the celebrity hairstylist responsible for Kim’s waist-length platinum hair.


Kim has definitely colored her hair in the past, but never quite this silver. The transition to blonde always seem to surround some major shift in her life.

Kim got some intense blonde highlights both following a split from Reggie Bush in 2009, and after giving birth to North West in 2013. In 2015, Kim totally committed and went LA blonde with a wig before announcing her pregnancy with Saint.



So it seemed fitting that Kim would go back to blonde for her first public appearance following the news of her surrogate being due in January was leaked. But she let us know the real reason for her blonde ambition via Twitter/Instagram.

“I’d go blonde for that D…😂,” wrote Kardashian-West—her way of participating in the #ForTheDChallenge that has taken over social media.

The challenge was started by a New Orleans rapper and made popular through posts from Erykah Badu and Micheal Blackson, as well as Issa Rae and Regina Hall. Kardashian West added her own spin to the “For The D” challenge (or what guys are calling it “For the P”), where celebrities and fans rap about what they’d do for sex.

Check out some of the other influencers that have jumped on the “For the D” challenge bandwagon:
