Kim Kardashian Accused of Wearing Blackface to Match North West’s Skin Tone

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

Update: Aug. 29, 2017 at 5:05 p.m. EST

Kim Kardashian is being accused of wearing blackface in her Jackie Kennedy-themed Interview magazine photoshoot with her 4-year-old daughter, North West. The 36-year-old reality star, who also came under fire for equating herself to the late First Lady, is now being criticized for what some perceive as darkening her skin to match her daughter’s. West, who’s the daughter of Kanye West, is half-black.

Given that the interview discussed the KKW Beauty mogul’s reality raising a biracial daughter, many critics saw Kardashian’s supposed darkened skin tone as hypocritical. Other critics slammed the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star for allegedly attempting to make the mother-and-daughter photoshoot more aesthetically pleasing by matching her skin tone to her half-black daughter.

As of publication, Kardashian nor Interview has responded to the blackface allegations.

Original story: Aug. 28, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. EST

A new Kim Kardashian photo shoot is stirring up controversy—and this time, it’s not for her usual nude antics. Instead, the 36-year-old reality star is fully dressed and posing with her 4-year-old daughter, North West. The concept is as non-controversial as can be—aside from the fact that Kim is dressed head-to-toe as Jackie Kennedy.

The photoshoot, which was for Interview magazine’s September issue, features Kim dressed in several Jackie O-like outfits, such as a fitted wool Chanel dress with gloves and a brunette bouffant, an ankle-length black dress with pearls, and tons of other tweed and wool skirt-suits fit for a First Lady.

Interview even deemed the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star as the country’s most powerful woman with the headline “America’s New First Lady,” which accompanied a piece written by Janet Mock.

Though celebrities have been dressing up as John F. Kennedy‘s wife for years off-screen and on, Interview‘s declaration that Kim is America’s new First Lady and that she possesses as much stature as Jackie O seems a little odd—even if her husband Kanye West half-joked that he was going to run for President in 2020.

And while it’s undeniable that Kim has built an empire for herself and arguably her five siblings and numerous other Kardashian-adjacent celebrities, putting her in Jackie Kennedy’s shoes just seems like an invitation to get roasted. If you need further evidence, take a look at these tweets, calling the photoshoot all kinds of cringe-worthy.

Of course, like the PR queen she is, Kim’s Jackie O stunt might just have been coincidentally timed to overshadow the shade Taylor Swift threw at her with her new music video last night. If this is true, maybe Kim does deserve the label of First Lady for her epic abilities to manipulate optics.

North West Will Only Allow Kim Kardashian to Photograph Her Under This Condition

Monday, July 10th, 2017

North West knows what she wants and how to get it—especially when it comes to capturing her best side. We mean, she learned from the best. Her mom is selfie extraordinaire Kim Kardashian and she comes from a long line of expert selfie-taking family members (See: Kylie Jenner), so it would make sense that the 4-year-old would start her list of selfie-related demands sooner or later. First up: No flash.

For a lot of us, flash photography can make us look greasy, red-eyed, or downright bad. Obviously aware of these downsides, North is already implementing her no-flash condition. We first learned of North’s no-flash rule in an adorable Instagram video of the toddler and her cousin, Penelope Disick, getting ready for Kourtney Kardashian‘s daughter’s 5th birthday party as proud mama Kim videotapes them.

The cute clip begins with North, dressed in a patch-filled denim jacket and some oversized heels, stomping (more like, wobbling) toward Kim to demand her to put her phone down and get moving already.

“We’re going out to go to a party!” she tells her mom. “No! Not flash!”

“No, no. Okay, no flash,” Kim responds, laughing.

The video continues with North and Penelope breaking down all the party’s fun-filled festivities: mermaid cakes, 97 mermaids, balloons, a shower, and towels.

“A shower and towels? Wow. That’s going to be a wild party,” Kim joked to her daughter.

While the party also included a rap performance by Will Smith and his son, Jaden, let’s be real, nothing is more exciting a shower and towels. Also, let’s pray that no one took a picture of North with flash because that’s def one way to ruin a girls’ night out.
