For this last set of Kimye inspired goodness, Bakari and I went to one of my favorite places to take photos- the top of my apartment’s parking garage! Imagine that we landed on a private jet, in true Kimye fashion, and that we were carried off onto the makeshift tarmac while we were eating grapes (we weren’t). For this set of photos I wore Zara waxed jeans, a Zara leather top and Steve Madden shoes.
As promised, here’s part II of my KIMYE series with my favorite human Bakari. For this set, we went a bit more rustic and endured the woods of Columbia, South Carolina for a bootylicious shoot (I hope). I wore a Topshop skirt and bra, Zara bag and some Jessica Simpson shoes to get my inner Kim flowing.
So, my wonderful friend Bakari and I had the fabulous idea of doing a Kim and Kanye inspired shoot. Oh- but we didn’t stop there. We had three outfit changes in three seperate locations, all of which weree very, very Kimye. I paired my Reformation bodysuit with my favorite Jeffrey Campbells and my favorite Topshop jeans for our first look. I’ll be posting the next couple looks over the next few days.
It’s no secret that I am not a fan of celebrities who are celebrities for the sake of it. The Kardashians, while having an entertaining television show, kill me in the worst way possible. I feel bad for them, constantly exposed to the scrutinizing eye of the media, while trying to live their lives, because beyond their extreme fame, they are just people after all. I don’t waste my energy worrying about what celebrities think or do or feel, I don’t buy into it and I especially don’t wear what I wear because some famous person wears it. There’s something about Kim especially that just gets under my skin, and although I don’t technically have a problem with her, she irks me. When I heard the rumor of Kim being on the cover of Vogue, you already know my skin crawled. So, when her and Kanye’s cover was released today, my soul probably shattered a bit.
My heart cried a little bit for Anna’s decision to put them on the cover. but then I remembered my initial reaction to Miley Cyrus at the VMA’s. Miley’s performance, much like this cover, was shocking and no one could stop talking about it. am not a Miley fan either, ESPECIALLY of her performance at the VMA’s (cue tongue out twerking). But, keep in mind, what do people do when they don’t like something? Talk about it to everyone. This may not be a great cover but the internet has already imploded and everyone’s going to be rushing to buy this issue, that’s a promise. Miley and Anna both understand that no publicity is bad publicity… this is just a great tool to have people continue the conversation about Vogue.
Anna even released that statement about the cover. So, what do you think?! Do you love the cover, hate it? Let me know.
