As those who “keep up” with the Kardashians are already aware, the famous family recently parted ways with their stylist of almost a decade, Monica Rose. News of the split broke late last month, with People reporting that Khloé, Kim, and Kourtney had all left Rose “to collaborate with other stylists.”
To be sure, celebrity/stylist switch-ups happen constantly in Hollywood; since image is everything in the entertainment industry, stars will often turn to a new stylist to help them rebrand (or even when they’re simply bored with their current look). But for a stylist of Rose’s ilk to lose five of her most high-profile clients (all three Kardashian sisters plus Kendall Jenner and, allegedly, Gigi Hadid) in the span of one month raises questions.
As if the shocking schism weren’t already dramatic enough, the entire Kardashian/Jenner family also unfollowed Rose on Instagram, the 2017 equivalent of flipping the bird. And last week, Page Six reported that Khloé Kardashian is “furious” with her former stylist and is considering suing Rose, for reasons unknown — and that the situation “is causing heartache” for all involved.
So how did we get here? The first thing to note is that the KarJenner crew’s split with Rose hasn’t been quite as sudden as all those headlines might lead you to believe.
