Well, he's gone and done the unthinkable. The tiny rapper has transformed his lady love from Sear's Kardashian Kollection to high fashion muse–and it's a must see for sure! Kim Kardashian has recently revealed some, um, interesting, pictures from a photo shoot that took place while she was very pregnant with baby North. Of course, if any other celebrity was the subject of the spread, it would no doubt be touted as edgy and artistic. But, let's be honest…it's Kim.
Kanye West has been pushing Kim out of her style comfort zone since the pair got together, and I'd say he's managed to steer her clear into the Siberian tundra of comfort zones with these new photos. And, being Kanye, he was able to score the hautest of the haute to make it happen.

Kim is gracing the cover of CR Fashion Book, and in the pictorial she is captured smeared with red lipstick, wearing an organic paper bag in homage to the Karate Kid (no doubt it costs more than my car), and sporting a jeweled mask reminiscent of this. Good times! People reports that the photo shoot was shot by fashion icon and Chanel god Karl Lagerfeld and directed by Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci. The look book is the vision of Kanye's friend Carine Roitfeld, who also happens to be the former editor of French Vogue.
While I assume the illustrious Mr. Lagerfeld and company was going for avant-garde and dramatic, I think they missed the whole "Kim Kardashian" aspect of their grand style awakening. It would be much more edgy (read: frightening) if they'd photographed Kris Jenner in the same fashion and poses.
I guess in light of Kim's fashion epiphany, I shouldn't be surprised to learn that Kanye is policing his infant's wardrobe as well. According to Life and Style, Kanye has banned pink (and pretty much every other child-like, fun color) from poor North's closet. A family insider tells the site, "They do not dress North in any other colors except three: black, white or cream. No pinks allowed!”
The two-month old may not have color, but she certainly has couture. The insider explains the contents of North's closet by saying, “Fendi, Bonpoint, Lanvin, custom Giuseppe Zanotti baby shoes, Dolce & Gabbana, Hermès — she has it all!”
Another source reveals that the nursery follows the same
boring classic palette, revealing, “The colors are dark navies, blacks and whites. It’s not girly at all," adding, “It has a flat-screen TV. They really spared no expense when it came to North’s nursery.”
You lost me at Fendi. Do these people forgo baby wipes and instead use hundred dollar bills on the child?
