Is Kim Kardashian West Making Lip Rings a Thing Again?

Kim Kardashian West is slowly making a comeback to social media, and she has a surprising new accessory: a gold hoop lip ring. The 36-year-old first sported the punk-inspired bauble in 2016 at mom Kris Jenner's Christmas party where sister Khloé captured the new bling in a selfie on Snapchat. Does that mean the lip ring will take the limelight away from the septum piercing that ruled 2016? If Kim is any indication, we think so.

Most recently, the star shared her "first selfie of 2017" on Snapchat, just one day after returning to Instagram, following months away from the spotlight. Wearing a V-neck blazer and throwing up the peace sign, the mother of two accessorized her pout with the hoop on the center of her lower lip yet again. "First selfie of 2017 w my mama," she captioned the picture of herself with Kris Jenner. It's unclear whether Kim's new accessory is the real deal or faux, but a tiny hoop never looked so good.
