I have to admit a little secret: I kinda like Kim Kardashian. Yes, she’s been extending her 15 minutes of fame into 15 years with a reality show, bathing suit line among other ventures, and yes, it’s difficult to differentiate Kim from her wax figure at Madame Tussaud’s, but there’s just something I can’t seem to get enough of.
Maybe it’s just this innate Middle-Eastern sisterly bond that we share. For instance, Kim graces the cover of the September issue of Allure Magazine and inside dishes openly about her obsession with laser hair removal because she’s Armenian. Girl, I get you. Somehow, like Kim, I ended up with the hairy gene while my brother resembles a Sphinx cat.
I feel like if I ever were to meet Kim we would instantly share this connection about how hairy we are, how we put on weight only in our lower half, what it is like to grow up with ethnic parents and bond over their strange rituals (plastic-wrapping the remote, creating Bethlehem under the Christmas tree that threatens to engulf the entire living room and the use of bonbonnieres as decorations).
Anyway, weird commonalities aside, Ms. Kardashian was shot by photographer Michael Thompson and her gorgeous makeup was applied by the uber-talented Gucci Westman. Wearing the Jenna Leigh Elle balconette bra, Kim channels a modern day Elizabeth Taylor.
