A very naked Kim Kardashian graces the cover of W’s November “Art” issue with the headline “It’s all about me…I mean you..I mean me” strategically covering her bits. Who would have thought the reality star, best known for her butt and twitter following, would figure into Stefano Tonchi’s new “Who, What, When, Where and Why In The World of Style” tagline for the mag?
At a press conference about the revamping of W a couple months ago, Tonchi said he would take the high fashion Conde title beyond the clothes to tell the stories of interesting people. Kim Kardashian might not be interesting to everyone. She’s certainly not of interest, I would think, to W’s readers as a fashion person–her sartorial choices extend to skimpy bikinis and skin tight mini dresses and her design experience is limited to a “collaboration” with Bebe. But I don’t doubt that Lynn Hirschberg’s profile of Kim (out tomorrow) will be interesting. And her naked body will certainly sell magazines.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Kim has posed naked. She posed for Playboy in 2007, and later confessed to Harper’s Bazaar in their May issue, where she, um, also posed nude, that she regretted the Playboy shoot. There was also that whole sex tape thing with Ray J.
It’s certainly a controversial cover choice for Tonchi. We’d love to hear your thoughts.
