Here's a bts pic from our @interviewmag shoot. Just wanted to thank @stevenkleinstudio for pushing me to do a shoot that was very different & powerful & allowed me to pay homage to the iconic Jackie Kennedy who I admire & respect!A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on Aug 28, 2017 at 10:03am PDT
"When Kim and I work together, each time we look for a different approach," Klein said. "We have no desire to repeat ourselves or reference anything she has done previously. For this shoot I wanted to capture feminine beauty as an expression of empowerment and self-respect. Also, to highlight Kim in a chic manner that is retrospective of a time and yet modern."
Kardashian West's hair is styled in a retro bob. She wears a variety of tailored skirt suits and knee-length dresses.
North West, Kardashian West's daughter with Kanye West, is also featured in the photos alongside her mother.
