Kim Kardashian transforms into Jackie Kennedy for new photoshoot


Kim Kardashian is a huge Jackie Kennedy fan, just don’t call her Jackie O around the KUWTK star!

Recently, Kim Kardashian and North West did a photo shoot and interview the Interview Magazine September issue and cover. That may not be anything special except that Kim just happens to be a huge fan of Jackie Kennedy.

Such a huge fan, in fact, that she recently won the former FLOTUS’ classic Cartier watch for nearly $400,000. That’s why it wasn’t shocking when the new Interview photos came out and they showed Kim dressed as the fashionable former First Lady.

The shoot was a happy surprise but Kim did clue fans in on the themed photos back in July. Via Snapchat, Kardashian shared some behind-the-scenes photos of the shoot according to the Huffington Post

Steve Klein is the photographer behind the session. In the article that accompanies it, Kim Kardashian is referred to as “the new First Lady.” Klein called her a “muse of modern times.”

“For this shoot I wanted to capture feminine beauty as an expression of empowerment and self-respect,” Klein said in a press release. “Also, to highlight Kim in a chic manner that is retrospective of a time and yet modern. As a model, Kim is a chameleon. She can easily change accordingly to the set intention and with little effort. It is her gift: her innate relationship to the camera. A muse of modern times.”

You may notice that in the caption of Kim’s Instagram photo above, she refers to the former First Lady as Jackie Kennedy. It has also been reported that she sometimes refers to her as Jackie K. That is nothing new and Kim has continued to call her by her first married name despite remarrying after the assassination of JFK.

We would be remiss not to mention the controversy that Kim Kardashian’s Jackie Kennedy photo shoot has stirred up. Many pointed out that Kim’s complexion closely matches North West’s in the pictures.

Rather than considering that maybe Kim was heavy handed with her new powder contour kits or maybe someone adjusted the tint on the picture, she has instead been criticized. Many believe that Kim wanted to match her daughter in the photographs. So far, she hasn’t commented or responded to the critics.

The photos and interview are definitely worth checking out. Especially the North West interview where Kim and Kanye’s daughter answered questions. Kim also had plenty to say, including this commentary on her “lack of talent.”

"“I used to say, ‘I love being underestimated.’ But now when I hear, ‘They’re so not talented,’— ten years into it—I’m kind of like, ‘Okay, give a girl a little respect.’ If I’m so not talented, if I do nothing, then how is my career my reality? And I poke fun at it, like when I was on the cover of Forbes I posted the hashtag #NotBadForAGirlWithNoTalent. I don’t mind being underestimated because it does fuel me. But after a while, I do feel like, ‘C’mon, you can recognize a little bit.’”"

“You can say a lot of things about me, but you cannot say I don’t work hard,” she added. “I don’t sing. I don’t dance. I don’t act. But I am not lazy.”
