If you knew the influential beauty mogul during her signature "King Kylie" persona, you would understand why the shift from flamboyant wigs and bold makeup to a more subdued aesthetic caught the attention of fans and fashion enthusiasts alike.

Refusing to shy away from probing questions, navigated inquiries about her newfound "clean girl" era with finesse, significantly when the conversation veered uncomfortably towards her rumored beau. 

During a recent profile in The New York Times, the mother-of-two remained tight-lipped when questioned about the potential influence of the "Dune" actor on her evolving style. 

"I don't know how I feel about that. I just don't want to talk about personal things," Jenner emphasized, deflecting any insinuations while focusing on her professional career.

One standout moment that surprised fans was Jenner's embrace of a puff-sleeve "cottagecore" maxidress during a summer vacation. 

The new look, characterized by less makeup, shorter nails, and neutral-colored outfits, led many to speculate whether her association with Chalamet influenced her newfound style.

However, while their romance fueled curiosity about the nature of their relationship, fans might not be able to find out anything, seeing as Jenner has gotten more private lately. 

In fact, recent data from the Kardashian Data Koalition revealed that the reality TV star significantly reduced her posts featuring her children by 47 percent from 2022 to 2023, despite these posts garnering the highest likes on average.

While Jenner has not entirely stopped sharing glimpses of her family life or bringing her children to public events, she was adamant about maintaining control over their exposure. 

"Since I was 9, people have been in my business," the 26-year-old reflected, underscoring her desire to shield her children from undue scrutiny.

This likely explains why Jenner insisted that quotes from her daughter, Stormi, be omitted, expressing worries about preserving her innocence and privacy. In her words:

"We can't do that to her. She's innocent. She comes in here, and she doesn't know we're doing an interview and then she has these quotes out in the open and she's 6 years old. It's my responsibility to protect her."
