Kim Kardashian may not have been welcome at the Met Ball, but that doesn't mean she isn't continuing in her kwest (get it?) for high fashion acceptance. Kanye West dressing her in Givenchy and Celine and muted colors may help, but sitting for SHOW Studio's Nick Knight for a V Magazine shoot is a sure-fire way to gain cred. (After all, look what it did for Choupette.) And that happened!
Kim and Nick both tweeted about the shoot last night (there's the pic at left for proof):
@SHOWstudio: The very lovely Kim Kardashian. Preview from the series of pictures I shot of Kim for SHOWstudio and V magaz
Kim retweeted it with lots of exclamation points, so the moral of the story is: Expect to see Kim Kardashian in V some time in the near future.
So while Kim says she doesn't think about being on magazine covers (like Vogue), we think the magazine world--and more and more the world of high fashion magazines--cares a lot (and probably Kim kares too). New York mag recently put Kim K on the cover of its fall fashion issue, asking whether she deserved to be there. Don't forget she has also graced the pages of L'Uomo Vogue and W.
Could Vogue be next? Will still think probably not but hey, anything's possible.
