For fashion icon Carine Roitfeld’s latest CR Fashion Book (Issue 16), the cover shoot that occurred for this edition was truly one for the ages. The iconic and trailblazing Cher is sharing the cover with business maven turned soon to be attorney Kim Kardashian West. Kardashian-West’s ravenous fandom for Cher is well documented, from a backstage visit with the icon after her Vegas show (documented on Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s) to West’s own words on the icon during the photo shoot; “Dream come true. Love you @Cher,” the E! star shared on Instagram Stories when sharing more photos from the shoot.
Kardashian-West also spoke with E! about her move towards criminal justice, telling the network “My evolution on this is probably some combination of growing up, getting married, having kids and my life being so different than what it was when I was starting out,” she shared. “Now, I feel like I have a duty to myself and to my children more than the public and I want to be a good role model for my kids.” Kim added, “I’m raising four black kids in this society and our system is so discriminatory against black and brown people. I want to do as much as I can to make their lives easier…I never knew much about the system until I started to dig in, and once I learned and saw how many things were wrong, I really couldn’t stop”.
Kardashian-West posted some behind the scenes thought prior to the shoot, along with some exclusive shots from the historic photo shoot. (The issue highlights Campbell’s established passion for AIDS research, Cher’s political activism, & Kardashian-West’s efforts for criminal justice reform).
