KK on W


NEWSFLASH - All media outlets have officially accepted that Kim Kardashian is an icon of our generation - deserving of solo cover space on one of the biggest fashion magazines in the world, which were once devoted only to "real stars". Real is the operative word! Thanks God that's over with. Of note we ♥ our friend and mega-stylist, Monica..without her Kim would not have made it to style icon status.

This is another sign that, in this age of Jersey Shore and other "real" tv there is a new definition of STAR! Why should an "Art" issue be limited to greats like Salvador Dali? The antics of Kardashian and Snookie can appeal to the same analytical minds that appreciate surrealist art. Their sauciness can appeal to thinkers who think so hard that they desperately sometimes need to escape the act of really thinking to think about how people can go through life seemingly doing so little of it. Maybe some of these overthinking types will be struck by Kardashian's nakedness, then see the headline and think that there is a depth to the woman that they just haven't given a chance. 

Or maybe, it doesn't matter what kinds of people this cover appeals to because it will appeal to droves of them, and lots of them will spend money on this issue. This is ALL that matters! Right?!
