They might be two of the most photographed people in the world, but Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are just like any other couple, according to the former editor of French Vogue, Carine Roitfeld.
Speaking at the New York premiere of Mademoiselle C, the super stylist had nothing but nice things to say about the new parents. “They are so normal,” she told People. “They are lovely together.”
Mademoiselle C follows Carine in the months building up to the launch of her new magazine, CR Fashion Book. And the latest issue of the publication featured the now famous pictures of Kim when she was eight months pregnant.
Carine met Kim, 32, through rapper Kanye “because he is so into fashion, of course”.
“We decided we would do a story about her. Immediately she said, ‘Yes’.”
The shoot featured provocative pictures of the mum-to-be taken by Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld. Posing in couture, Kim was pictured with jam smeared over her face; with gold grills; and wearing a fully jewelled mask, to name a few.
She was certainly up for the challenge. “She was one of the easiest models I have ever worked with,” Carine confirmed. “She’s not a model, but she was pregnant, you know, and I love pregnant women.
“Honestly, she was very, very nice. She made no demands at all.”
No doubt Kanye was delighted with the results of Kim’s high fashion shoot. The 36-year-old, who launched his own clothing label last year, has recently been spotted attending shows at New York Fashion Week, stopping by both Alexander Wang and Louise Goldin on Saturday.
He stepped out without Kim – according to People, the new parents haven’t seen each other since they released a photo of their baby North in late August – but it was recently revealed that both mother and daughter will join Kanye on his 23 date concert tour, kicking off in Seattle on 19 October.
