If there is anyone fortunate enough to grace more Vogue Covers in the world, is Kim Kardashian West, as we have lost count, with her making yet another debut, but her first-ever Vogue Arabia Cover. The reality TV queen turned beautician, on Monday 26th August 2019, shared some stunning photos from her Vogue Arabia cover shoot, where she opened about herself with her husband, Kanye West doing the interview.
￼According to Vogue Arabia, Kim Kardashian West in her shoot was wearing Thierry Mugler by Casey Cadwallader, as she gave a refreshingly honest interview by her husband, rapper and designer Kanye West.
Speaking to Vogue Arabia, Kardashian West dispels many of the misconceptions she has faced in her career, including being underestimated. The star who is currently studying law and who has successfully worked with the US government on criminal justice issues reveals in the interview, “There is a misconception that I don’t have to study and that I’ve bought my way into getting a law degree – that’s not true… Being underestimated and over-delivering is my vibe.”
On the lessons she wishes to share with her audience, she keeps it simple: “I try to be a good person and to take my mistakes and make them into a better experience — to learn and grow from them and move on.” On her first proper date with West, she adds, “I was like, ‘Damn, why did I waste so much time and energy? Why didn’t I do this sooner?’”
As one of the most followed celebrities on social media and with an estimated net worth of US $370 million, Kardashian West is all too aware of the pressure she’s under to be a responsible role model for young people, though admits she only felt the pressure recently. “I never felt the responsibility of being a role model until I had kids,” she says.
On living in the limelight she says, “Even in my darkest of times I don’t regret putting myself out there for the world to see. People have shared with me over the years how much it has helped them to feel less alone when dealing with their adversity. I love having a voice and I appreciate the platform that I have been given, even though I do wish I could have more privacy at times.”
In the candid interview, West puts his wife on the spot, asking her opinion on money and fame. “Money was always the goal but I was obsessed with fame, like, embarrassingly obsessed… I do agree that fame can be addictive,” she admits.
West also, controversially, asks her to pick her favourite sister. “It changes, just like friends or relationships go in and out. I think this year has been a really strong Kim and Khloé year,” she reveals. “I’m so close with Kendall and Kylie too but I’ve spent so much more time on this earth with Kourtney and Khloé – 16 and 17 years longer with them. We have more history, have been through so much together, and we have more friends in common. Kourtney and I will always be close, but this year, Khloé and I bonded.” she said.
