6 wildest takeaways from Kim Kardashian's 2019 Vogue cover story

Kim Kardashian West, Attorney at Law?

Vogue profiled the multi-faceted reality star for its May 2019 cover, and just when we thought we knew all there is to know about KKW, she managed to surprise us yet again.

Here are the 6 wildest takeaways from the piece, which you can read in its entirety here.

1. Kim is preparing to take the California bar in 2022 by studying with legal experts for eighteen hours a week

Much of the Vogue profile focuses on Kim's dedication to legal studies, a subject in which she's previously expressed interest, but not in nearly so much detail. In summer 2018, she began a four-year apprenticeship with a San Francisco-based law firm — an endeavor that, Vogue editor Jonathan Van Meter notes, she knew would elicit major eye-rolls from skeptics.

"To me, torts is the most confusing, contracts the most boring, and [criminal law] I can do in my sleep," Kim said of the three topics covered in year one of law school.

Of her pursuits in law, she said, "I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more."

2. Kim's father, the late Robert Kardashian, had a secret room in his house where he housed materials for the O.J. Simpson case.

Kim's fascination with court proceedings began when she was just a kid. Her attorney father famously represented O.J. Simpson, a longtime friend, during his murder trial in the mid-1990s.

"My dad had a library, and when you pushed on this wall there was this whole hidden closet with all of his O.J. evidence books," Kim said. "On weekends I would always snoop and look through. I was really nosy about forensics."

3. Yeezy sneakers can be near-impossible to snag, but not if you have access to Kim and Kanye's garage.

Inside the West family garage, there's "a wall of shelves with boxes of Adidas Yeezy Boost sneakers stacked to the ceiling." The sneaks retail for around $220, but they're always limited-edition and difficult to actually buy.

But before you start making plans to break into the garage, you should know that it also houses a security pod that's manned 24 hours a day. Sorry.

4. She wore one of Jackie O's personal accessories to the Oval Office while meeting with President Trump.

Kim's visit to the White House last year was the culmination of her efforts to free a Tennessee woman from incarceration. Alice Marie Johnson was handed down life in prison in 1996 after a first-time, non-violent drug offense, and more than two decades later, Kim made it her mission to convince the president to commute her sentence.

Ahead of the high-pressure meeting, Kim made a meaningful purchase. "I bought Jackie Kennedy Onassis's watch at an auction," she told Vogue. "I wore it when I went to the White House. It gave me some power: Let's get in there and get this done."

5. After she granted Kanye West permission to give her a makeover, she returned home to discover he'd thrown out almost all of her shoes.

Early in their relationship, Kanye asked Kim if he could choose her outfit for a Lakers game. She agreed, and while they were gone for the evening, a team of stylists arrived at her house.

"When we came home, there  were shoes piled up almost to the ceiling that they had taken out of my closet. I only had two pairs left! I almost started to cry," she said. "I spent years collecting those."

Asked if she found it unsettling or controlling, she said no, citing him as the reason why she now dresses in high-end designer clothing. "He's been my go-to stylist ever since," she said.

6. Kim 100% knows what people think of her.

The reality star has been in the public eye for well over a decade, and she's fully aware that many people have low expectations of her intellect.

“I love to be put in a situation where I can have a conversation with someone who might not be inclined to think much of me, because I can guarantee they will have a different opinion and understand what’s important to me after they’ve met me," she said.
