Embracing the reality star starlet is a huge feat that the Kim Kardashian for New York Magazine editorial manages to tackle.
The accompanying essay by Benjamin Wallace explores the style bible's choice to include a starlet that is often dismissed by fashionistas despite her exemplary style trajectory. The cover girl glows in a fashion story that capitalizes on her beauty. She appears in a backless gown looking tasteful as well as in various beauty shots that boast an almost digitalized hazy aesthetic.
The cover choice is groundbreaking in its embracing of reality star culture. Many now-iconic fashionistas had similar experiences when making their way to the realm of celebrated figures such as Victoria Beckham and the Olsen Twins. It is commendable for Wallace and the New York times to include this uber stylish multidisciplinary power celebrity.
