That's the question New York Magazine poses on the cover of their fall fashion issue, which features Kim Kardashian on it.
The reality star was interviewed by Benjamin Wallace while visiting Kanye West in New York City, and delves further into the love/hate relationship fashion has with the reality star.
Wallace points out all of Kardashian's forays into the fashion world, but "when it comes to high fashion she has been met with a cool shoulder".
According to a fashion executive, Kim has ulterior motives for attending fashion shows:
"I think she sees fashion as another means for making money. I don’t think she’s ever going to want to go to a fashion show for her love of clothes. She’s going to want to get paid for going to that show."
The exec adds for Kim to gain acceptance into the fashion world she'd need to "quit all [her] other jobs".
Of course, there were less scathing remarks in the article, but those all came from Kim.
The reality starlet actually believes her and Kanye's love of fashion has brought them closer. She explains:
"If I have a design meeting, or he has one, we come back and talk about how our meetings went. It’s cool, ’cause you can definitely get more in-depth with someone who actually knows what you’re talking about … So that’s been a fun similarity we have. I think it’s essential to have similarities. When this whole life is done, and it’s just the two of us sitting somewhere when we’re 80, you want to have things to talk about that you have in common. I think that’s something maybe I didn’t value as highly as a quality I cared about in someone.”
As for personal goals, Kim doesn't have any:
"I don’t really have goals as far as, I want to be on a cover or something like that. I think my goals are more just expanding my line, and having my line be really successful. That’s the ultimate goal, I think, for me. I don’t say, ‘Oh, I want to be on this magazine or I want to do this.’ It’s all fun. And I love, definitely, turning into a different character. I think each shoot has a different personality."
Needless to say, the entire interview was kind of bizarre. If you have some time to kill, you can read it all HERE or you can just look at the pretty pictures (below).
