By now, Kim Kardashian-West is a veteran of the fashion photo shoot, but even she couldn’t have possibly expected the criticism that would come from letting hubby Kanye take the reins. The mommy-to-be appears in a newly released photo spread, shot at Château d’Ambleville in France, posing provocatively in little more than a bra and panties, though her typical legions of fans are none too impressed. It’s rumored that Kanye handled the creative direction, putting his own brand of edgy spin on it.
We’d be lying if we said we aren’t a bit…weirded out by the far-out photo shoot. While we usually give artists free reign to do as they wish, we’re just not impressed. A dirt mound, thigh-high boots and neutral lingerie is hardly a fashion statement, and the fact that photographer Juergen Teller threw Penn in a fluffy red jacket into the mix drives things further into the bizarro world.
Kim has been letting Kanye play dress-up for quite some time now. “He had his stylists come in and they put everything that he thought wasn’t cool enough in a pile, and I walked in and it was a pile to the ceiling of shoes — all my amazing shoes that I loved,” she said. “And I started crying. I was like, ‘I can’t get rid of this stuff, your stylist has no idea what she’s talking about.’ So I put it all in another room, and I was like, ‘I’ll trust your opinion, but I’m not getting rid of my stuff,” she said in an interview last year.
It may be time to bring in the professionals, Kim.
