kim kardashian no wrinkles smile gi The reason Kim Kardashian doesn't smile is a bit depressingKim Kardashian has a very distinct facial expression just for photos: Lips together, corners slightly turned up, brow unfurrowed. If you’ve looked at the above photo and thought, “Wow, Kim K. has a a decided lack of wrinkles for a 34-year-old mom who’s married to Kanye West,” then the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star is doing her job well.

According to the reality TV mogul, the reason why it’s rare to see her smiling and laughing in photos is because she’s trying to avoid creating laugh lines. Yes, really.

See I do smile… even laugh on occasion. Not too often though because it causes wrinkles @shammaurice

To make sure all 27 million of her Twitter followers got the message as well, Kim re-posted the photo with the caption on that social media platform as well. 

As if to prove her point, Kardashian posted a number of other pictures from the Kardashian and Jenner 2014 holiday party photo booth on her Instagram, and she has nary a smile or laugh in sight in all of them.

Sisters Bff’s for life!!!

Kourtney Kardashian either missed the no-smiling memo or just does not care about wrinkles. Either way, go get ’em, tiger.

Maybe Kim forgot that this event was called “Better Not Pout,” not “Better Not Get Wrinkles From Being Happy”? 

Happy Holidays ❤️ The Wests

Look, Kanye and Nori are concerned about wrinkles too!

There’s always the chance that Kim was just cracking a self-aware joke with the “wrinkle” comment, because she’s been given a hard time about her photo face in the past. But if she’s serious and she’s made a point of not smiling and laughing too much because repeated facial expressions are known to cause wrinkles, well … that’s just depressing.
