Kim Kardashian’s Karl Lagerfeld Photo Shoot: Brilliant Or Bizarre?

Kim Kardashian bares her pregnant belly in probably the WEIRDEST photo shoot ever

Also PHOTOS: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West On the cover, Kardashian’s mouth is ajar, showcasing a major gold grill. But her baby bump is the focus of the avant-garde spread inside the mag. It’s no secret her baby daddy Kanye West has had her experiment with high fashion since they’ve been together, but here we see Kardashian embracing her pregnancy and the sartorial world in a very different way. She’s still the sultry sex kitten that made her famous; however, she pretty much allows herself to be a puppet in Lagerfeld’s vision. The art was directed by Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci. You’ll recall, Tisci is a good friend of West’s and dressed Kardashian in a finger-covering floral gown at this year’s Met Gala. Apparently he’s the one who suggested Roitfeld use Kardashian as the cover girl. PHOTOS: Meet the Kardashians “Pregnancy is something that I always love. It’s about hope and the future and a new baby,” said Carine Roitfeld ( via E!), who started the high-fashion codex. “This is not something for a gossip magazine that goes into the trash,” she asserted. “This is a magazine that is a collector’s item.” One photo shows Kardashian dressed up a la “Gossip Girl’s” Upper Eastsider in a vintage Chanel jacket and Ann Demeulemeester dress. She stares vacantly through the fourth wall with “jelly” smudged all over her mouth. It’s not really jelly, it’s a few different shades of Chanel rouge. In another, she wears a half-zipped jumpsuit by Comme de Garcons that exposes her belly, and conceals her breasts with a black Cadolle bra. She wears pink gloves by Agnelle and shoes by Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci.

Kim Kardashian for CR Fashion Book Issue 3 CR Fashion In the backstage video, scroll down for a look, a classic Kim bares her pregnancy belly in just a slinky black dressing gown with bra before grabbing a rugby ball with some pink balloons. Deep. Not only does the behind the scenes CR Magazine footage make us feel a bit weird, it is accompanied by atmospheric music which frankly makes us scared. Thank god Kris Jenner is in the video otherwise we would be concerned for our health. And… well, we are not sure what to make of this picture. Kim has covered those lovely pearly whites with some gold grillz and looks a bit menacing. Get all in her grillz CR Fashion With a slick of gold eyeshadow, Kim shows Chanel snapper Karl (and us) her nostrils. Kim did the sky-high fashion shoot with Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld while she was pregnant, and now there’s photographic proof of the weirdly beautiful merger. Earlier this week she wrote on Twitter: “OMG the COVER of Carine Roitfeld’s crfashionbook #issue3!!! Shot by @karllagerfeld! Thank you @riccardotisci17 #Fam #ThisIsCrazy!!!!! #Dying!!!!!,” the new mom wrote Wednesday, sharing a picture of the magazine’s cover.
