Perhaps hoping to shock by using an unusual celebrity cover star, Carine Roitfeld enlisted a pregnant Kim Kardashian to grace the latest issue of CR Fashion Book, and even more controversially, Kim appears to be surrounded in a haze of smoke. She’s also wearing golden grillz teamed with a matching gold eyeshadow for the cover picture. According to reports, Kanye’s friend Riccardo Tisci is behind the art direction of the shoot (and basically suggested using Kim to Carine), while Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld photographed the images.
Speaking on working with Kim while she was pregnant, Carine said that the images beautifully represent hope, the issue’s theme:
“Pregnancy is something that I always love, it’s about hope and the future and a new baby.”
She adds that the shoot was hard work but she is used to families:
“It was hard work. I’m a grandma, but I learned from Karl to never be tired.”
