KIM KARDASHIAN GETS HER FIRST SOLO 'VOGUE' COVER
A few days after we rang in the new year, Kim Kardashian — who became one of the fashion world's most ubiquitous figures in 2014 — tweeted that she was "up all night redoing [her] whole wardrobe with Kanye [West]" and that she has a "new vision" for 2015. Well, we're only two weeks in and we already have our first peek at what that "vision" might entail, and we'll admit, we're really liking it.
Vogue Australia tapped Kardashian (or as the magazine calls her, KKW) to be the cover star of its February 2015 issue, which was officially released on Monday. With styling by Fashion Director Christine Centenera — the very editor who once consulted on West's ill-fated clothing line — Kardashian looks ethereal in her beachside portraits by Gilles Bensimon.
Her natural, barely-there beauty look, paired with clean, sporty ensembles in a palette of sand, blush, white and black, offers a slightly softer version of the star than we've been seeing lately. (It's also a starkly different vibe from her upcoming Love cover, which features the reality star with bleached eyebrows wearing brightly colored custom Prada.) With a solo Vogue cover officially under her belt in the new year, we're sure she'll be a fixture when Fashion Month begins in a few weeks. Kardashian cashed in on the fashion world in a big way in 2014, and if this spread is any indication, the coming 12 months will be even more lucrative.
