Kim Kardashian gets her first solo VOGUE cover
Vogue Australia tapped Kardashian (or as the magazine calls her, KKW) to be the cover star of its February 2015 issue, which was officially released on Monday. With styling by Fashion Director Christine Centenera - the very editor who once consulted on West's ill-fated clothing line - Kardashian looks ethereal in her beachside portraits by Gilles Bensimon.
Her natural, barely-there beauty look, paired with clean, sporty ensembles in a palette of sand, blush, white and black, offers a slightly softer version of the star than we've been seeing lately. (It's also a starkly different vibe from herupcoming Love cover, which features the reality star with bleached eyebrows wearing brightly colored custom Prada.) With a solo Vogue cover officially under her belt in the new year, we're sure she'll be a fixture when Fashion Month begins in a few weeks. Kardashian cashed in on the fashion world in a big way in 2014, and if this spread is any indication, the coming 12 months will be even more lucrative.
Watch the video below for a peek behind the scenes at the Vogue Australia shoot, and be sure to keep an eye out throughout 2015 for the evolution of Kardashian's new #aesthetic.
