Kim Kanye Lofficiel hommes 1 All Images From Kim And Kanyes Shoot For LOfficiel Hommes
Followers of Highsnobiety must have seen the cover of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for L’Officiel Hommes magazine, which offered us a mighty intimate peek into their pompous relationship, and now we’ve got the full spread.

The rich black-and-whites photographed by Nick Knight are definitely more Kanye focussed (makes sense given the magazine’s status as a men’s pub). Maybe Kim also preferred to stay in the background as -regarding her pregnancy- whole-body pics wouldn’t have let her look as pretty as she is on the images released in the magazine. Take a look through the gallery on the next page and don’t miss to leave your comment below.

HighSnobette Best Of 2012

QueenoftheJungleMelodyEhsanijpg HighSnobette Best Of 2012

What we have always loved about fashion is it’s potential to bring joy. We as HighSnobette editors feel so lucky to not only have witnessed many of these special moments but to also have come to know and watch grow many of the artists and designers behind some of our favorite projects. Below in no particular order we share what we regard as some of the best, joy-bringing efforts of 2012:

Designer Melody Ehsani’s star has been on the rise for quite some time now, but her “Queen of the Jungle” necklace (above) in many ways stamped her official arrival. We lost count of the stylish celebrities spotted in this vivacious fun piece.

Leah McSweeney has always been a force of personality. She literally is the MTTM brand, as backed by an intensely loyal supporting staff + fan base. Like many young brands the label went through its stumbles when investors pulled out, but the tenacious McSweeney was able to hold on to the name and this year the label found its own inimitable stride again, as marked by the brand’s “Supreme Bitch” snapback cap, which received the blessing of none other mega-style star Rihanna.

See many more “bests” on the next page. And a very Happy New Year to all. Thank you so much for your support in 2012.

During the q&a, Kanye popped up and surprised with a final question asking Williams how he developed such a high taste level.

Kanye West posts a handsome image of him and his girl, titled “My Baby,” on his Twitter account. Don’t know whose dress Kim Kardashian is wearing [UPDATE: It's Stephane Rolland worn to to MTV's EMAs held in Franfurt] or what kicks West has on but gosh their look seem to come together perfectly here. A factoid we imagine was not lost on West–and thus his decision to share.

Kim Kardashian For New York Mag Fashion Issue

KimK2 540x360 Kim Kardashian For New York Mag Fashion Issue

In a nicely-written cover story titled “What Will The Fashion World Do With Kim Kardashian,” for New Yorkmagazine’s “Fashion Issue,” the author examines the exclusionary nature of the fashion world and the dilemma that Kardashian presents. Here’s a snippet:

While the attacks [on Kardashian] may derive partly from a good-faith aesthetic response to some of the clothing she wears, at least as much of it seems to stem from an aversion to non-eating-disorder body types and a broader snobbery and classicism. Fashion likes to celebrate and appropriate street culture and even trash culture, except when it doesn’t.

Every club does some gate keeping so it’s not surprising that fashion has some rules around who its snobbiest members (see Anna Wintour and her enforcer Andre Leon Talley) will and will not allow as members. The article mentions that the Olsen Twins have been embraced by fashion but in their early days they were not. Neither was the now highly-celebrated Victoria Beckham. For the record, us Snobettes enjoy the heck out of both Kardashian and her man.

Kardashian will eventually make her way in if she sticks to it and becomes less popular to the masses, not to mention ends her partnership with Sears, only the unhippest retailer on the planet. It also probably depends on what happens with her and Kanye. If they wed, have children and thus Kardashian becomes a proper “lady” then no doubt the six-page Vogue spread with her two gorgeous children shown around her posh mansion will follow.
