Kim Kardashian by Ben Hassett:
The Age of Influence. Yeah tell that to your husband.
The vermin of pop culture! Can't believe there are still magazines out there who glorify this airhead. I'm not even interested to hear how well her makeup range is selling (which is probably what this cover story is all about.)
She just gets more and more plastic as time goes on. I respect her as a businesswoman, but I still find her to be egotistical, narcissistic, and superficial. I can understand why tabloids and magazines still use her, but BOF is more for professionals.
Unless she's here to say something I haven't heard before - suddenly speaking off-script about the inner workings of the family-fakery, or providing incisive analysis about personal branding and the reach of social media, then I'll pass on this week's advert for the KKW.
BoF bad vibes.....
i get ads for this every 2 minutes on twitter ...
Doesn't BoF live from subscriptions from actual people in the business who are interested in analysis and harder-to-get information? What purpose does Kim on the cover serve? Who is she supposed to attract?
Not at all interested in The Business of Fashion's print edition but I do think that's a beautiful shot of Kim Kardashian, and quite frankly think all Kim's work with Ben Hassett turns out beautiful (she was photographed by Hassett for an issue of Violet Grey). Hassett really is a fantastic and masterful beauty/portrait photographer!
There is another cover with Sinèad Burke....anything but KK
This is the cover we should be discussing. If you did not yet see her BoF Voices panel, I highly recommend it.
Sinéad Burke by Tim Walker:
THE BUSINESS OF BEAUTY
Photographer: Ben Hassett
Stylist: George Cortina
Hair: Chris Appleton
Make-Up: Kanako Takase
Model/Celebrity: Kim Kardashian West
Her head looks superimposed onto the upper body part, very odd. Despite always being naked I've never actually bothered to pay attention to her body. Must say it looks faintly masculine, and I say this not in a mean-spirited way.
