Who could forget that Kim Kardashian looked almost unrecognizable in a blonde Farrah Fawcett wig for her Skims’ “metallic bath” collection in July? (It was almost as iconic as when she turned into this other famous blonde for the Met Ball.)
Well, the 41-year-old has teamed up with the same photographer, Nadia Lee Cohen, for another shocking faded photo shoot – this time for “Interview” magazine – which was revealed on Tuesday, September 6. Fan reactions are pouring in and they are already priceless. The comments range from the typical adoration you’d expect from Kim Stans (“Gorgeous!”) to less desirable comments (“Is that Jeffree Star you?”).
Love it or hate it, this is definitely one of Kim’s most edgy looks and definitely worth seeing. Plus, read what the aspiring lawyer had to say about her ex, Pete Davidson, in the article. This is definitely OMG worthy.
Interview Magazine ‘American Dream’
The interview tapped the “Kardashians” star for their latest September “American Dream”-themed magazine cover. An article with magazine editor Mel Ottenberg, aptly titled “Kim Kardashian Bares All”, is accompanied by a very retro photo shoot taken by his collaborator Skims Cohen.
The cover shows Kim in a denim jacket, pulling her jeans down to expose her famous behind and a jock strap. We blush for her!
Cohen also captured the SKKN founder in a series of eye-catching photos for the cover. Her bleached blonde feathered hair and eyebrows are a sharp left turn from her classic brunette look.
Although uncredited, the blonde appears to be courtesy of Kim’s go-to stylist, Chris Appleton, who posted the cover and interior photos, along with a video montage of the shoot, to his Instagram page.
Fans aren’t so sure about this look for Kim.
“This looks nothing like Kim, didn’t even recognize her until I read the caption,” one user posted on Kim’s post. “Not a good look,” wrote another. “This is nothing like Kim,” another lamented.
People say she looks like other stars. “I thought it was Jeffrey [sic] star,” chimed another. “Gaga?” asked another, referring to the “Star Is Born” actress.
“The American Curse,” said one, referring to the “American Dream” theme of the numbers. Ouch!
But that’s not all. “To be honest, I’m not crazy about this look,” one of Appleton’s followers wrote in his post. “This is not the American dream,” added another. At press time, Kim’s post had garnered over 2.1 million likes and countless comments (many of them not positive).
Pete Davidson Comments
Toward the end of their conversation, Ottenberg mentioned ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson, 28, “We want to put him on the cover someday,” and referenced his rumor, “BDE.” The reality TV star’s reaction was very friendly towards her ex.
“He’s a cutie,” Kim revealed of the “Saturday Night Live” alum. “He’s literally such a good person, they don’t really make them like him anymore. I’m excited for what he has to come. Ah!
