After having recently blessed the cover of Bazaar together, the Kardashian-West’s are back at it again. When we think of his and hers, it’s along the lines of mugs, towels or bathroom counters with two sinks. For the KW’s, it’s the cover of a magazine.
Little to anyone’s surprise, Kanye has been crowned Royalty by W Magazine for their ‘Royals Issue’. He has to share this throne, however, with 14 other celebrities the mag deemed worthy. But when the likes of Halle Berry and Priyanka Chopra are on the list, it doesn’t seem so bad. Shot by Mario Sorrenti, Kanye earned his cover for showcasing the makings of a ‘Royal’, which according to the W entails creativity, greatness and originality.
“He is making music, fashion, merch, art, and breaking exciting new talents like Desiigner via his own record label. His Yeezy shows are among the hottest tickets at New York Fashion Week; his Pablo tour is among the hottest tickets in arenas around the country; he even staged an exhibition of his own art at a major gallery in L.A., which he was too busy doing other things to attend. West has kept this manic output up for years now, which is why he’s a classic Renaissance Royal.”
Meanwhile, Kim has graced the cover of Wonderland Magazine in a shoot by Petra Collins. We’ve seen Kim in wedding get-up a couple of times before, but nothing like this. Albeit, the dress she wore when she married West was very different to this look, but we’re feeling it all the same. She appears somewhere between a saint, a bride and Madonna, and every bit the queen to Kanye’s king.
