AI-generated images of the Kardashians have revealed what the family would look like without any 'facial enhancements'.
The simulation was created by Vandahood Live, who used a series of virtual tools, past interviews and images of the Kardashian/Jenner family to create their 'unaltered' faces.
And people have been left fascinated by the results, with the TikTok clip amassing 2.6 million views on the video sharing platform. You can watch it below:
The images use interviews of Kim, Khloé, Kourtney, Kylie Jenner and Kris Jenner, juxtaposed with altered images that allegedly represent what the family would look like without any surgical enhancements.
“We used three different AI software and two different standard graphics software and a full week to pull it off,” Keith from Vandahood Live told PetaPixel.
“We had to take a different approach for each member of the family since each one underwent different changes over the years.
“For Kylie we used Deep Face Lab and for two days trained an AI model of her face pre-surgery and set it to match the proportions of her current face.
"And then in Adobe After Effects, we manually reduced her cheek filler as they went outside the portions of her 'before' face. Then lastly we ran it through DaVinci Resolve to grade and match her original skin tone.”
Keith added: “For Kim and Kourtney, we trained them on Deep Face Lab and did some minor corrections and skin tone corrections in DaVinci Resolve.”
It's worth noting that a number of the family members have claimed to never have had any cosmetic work.
Kylie revealed in 2015 that she had had lip fillers, but denied other treatments or surgery, telling Paper Magazine in 2019: “People think I fully went under the knife, and completely reconstructed my face, which is completely false."
Meanwhile, Khloé has revealed she previously had a nose job.
She told ABC: "My whole life I always wanted my nose done, like forever. But it's in the middle of your face and it's scary to think about. But I finally got the courage and I did it and I love it."
Meanwhile, while Kim has admitted to a 'bit of botox', she recently told Allure: “I’ve never had eyelash extensions. I’ve never done anything. I’ve never filled my cheeks. I’ve never filled my lips.”
Viewers on TikTok were pretty stunned by the video, with some believing Kim and Kourtney's differences were mainly due to make-up.
