Let me let you in on a little secret—I love me some Kim Kardashian. Not for her beauty or her fashion or her reality show prowess, but because of her hustle. Kim Kardashian and her family brand themselves like no one’s business. And it’s because of this that she has been able to continue to remain relevant in a world where her 15 minutes of fame should’ve been up. Long after Paris Hilton was able to segue her socialite-ness into quasi success, Kim is still pushing and is showing no signs of shopping.
I do not, however, always agree with Kim’s “thirst” for attention. I believe that you can be likeable without “trying so hard”, and it appears at times Kim tends to change and become whatever her then-husband, fiancee, man, etc. wants her to be. Now dating Kanye West, she has taken off the butt pads and toned down her “everyday look” and seems to be wearing more editorial type of fashion pieces. And a lot of this, we know, has to do with Kanye and his slave to the fashion mentality.
Here are pics from behind the scenes of a shoot I did with Hype Williams. Clyde Haygood and Joyce Bonelli glammed me up and we went for a fun, crazy look, channeling Diana Ross. Definitely a new look for me. Xo
Anywho, recently, Kimmy was photographed by the acclaimed video director turned photog Hype Williams and shared the end result on her website. While I think Kim is a beautiful young lady, she is no Diana Ross. I wonder if Ross’ disco anthem, Love Hangover, was playing in the background as she modeled her faux curly ‘fro.
What are your thoughts on Kim Kardashian’s Diana Ross transformation. Do we like it?
