When Kim Kardashian was at the end of her pregnancy, she posed for Karl Lagerfeld in Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book. On the cover of the book, Kim shows off a solid gold grill. Can we PLEASE be done with these grills? They work on NO ONE. There are pictures of Kim in some sort of rhinestone mask. Each picture is awful, but the one above is the WORST. No? She looks like how I feel after eating Thanksgiving dinner.
Carine explained these pictures with this quote: “This is not something for a gossip magazine that goes into the trash. This is a magazine that is a collector’s item.” Yes, what a collector’s item this is. Barf.
After teasing its new cover girl online yesterday, Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book has revealed its third issue star: Kim Kardashian. The new mom posed for a series of moody black and white covers shot by Karl Lagerfeld back in May, before she and Kanye West welcomed baby North.
Kim’s connection to Kanye can’t be understated here — we already had a guess Kim was the cover star based on the teaser image, which showed the cover model wearing Kanye’s favorite bejeweled Maison Martin Margiela mask. Kanye is also close friends with Riccardo Tisci, who art-directed the photo shoot and is BFFs with Carine Roitfeld.
On the real cover, unveiled today, Kim removes the mask to reveal the recently ubiquitous accessory du jour, grills. (Perhaps inspired by Kanye, too?) Inside the mag, the story is headlined “Miss USA” and features the reality star in a Yankees cap with her pregnant belly exposed.
