A typical talking point for the Kardasho-Jenner sisters goes like this: What would life look like without the magazine covers, the cameras, the Instagram #ads? What would life look like without the dedicated emoji spread? For Kylie, it's a farm. For Kim, it's crime solving in a science lab.
The wife of Ye, mother of North and Saint, and mogul appears in Vogue Australia's June issue with a lightly made-up face, a series of 10 corsets, and not a few Yeezy pieces. In the accompanying interview, she imagines a parallel universe away from cameras, saying, "I would be a forensic investigator and live a normal life." Would watch that crime procedural.
Kim posted the cover on Instagram this weekend. Photographer Lachlan Bailey shot the feature and the publication's fashion director Christine Centenera styled the shoot. Vogue Australia is peddling the spread as Kim's first post-baby shoot since giving birth to Saint in December.
The magazine lands on Australian newsstands on May 16th.
