Kim Kardashian West has sparked a lot of hate after appearing on the cover of the March edition of Vogue India in a lehenga – a traditional embroidered Indian skirt!
Famous personalities often get stuck in the middle of situations where they face backlash and criticism from the public. Kimmy K, however, is controversy’s favorite child and has frequently found herself caught in the middle of hate from all around the world.
Kim has yet again been criticized for her recent work with Vogue India. While, the 38-year-old reality TV star looks exquisite in her photos for the cover, some fans have a different perspective to offer.
Some Twitter users believed that only Indian beauty should be promoted on the cover of the magazine, rather than a foreign one.
As part of her shoot by talented photographer, Greg Swales, Kim had to dress in traditional Indian clothes. The mom-of-three wore a traditional lehenga, which is commonly known as a long skirt in the West.
She complemented it with a pinkish red crop-top, or as Indians call it, choli. The blonde beauty was an absolute treat for the eyes.
An angry user tweeted, “I can’t believe @VOGUEIndia featured Kim Kardashian on their cover as if we don’t see her featured on a different magazine every day. India’s vogue should embrace and feature their own south Asian women instead of choosing someone from pop culture.”
Another concurred user said, “I have nothing against Kim Kardashian but @VOGUEIndia is really doing itself a disservice by continually neglecting to portray brown women in their “magazine”- you’re perpetuating a detrimental cycle of underrepresentation. Stop whitewashing your own damn culture.”
A third dissatisfied person said, “So many pretty Indian models out there and Vogue India somehow chooses Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian for their covers. How hard is it to have Indian women represent Indian culture.”
However, there were also few Kardashian loyalists who came to her defense:
“It amazes me how the people who are complaining about Kim being on the cover of Vogue Indian aren’t even from India or live there. In fact, they’re happy because Kimberly is showing respect to their culture. Proof that they will find ANYTHING to hate on Kim Kardashian.”
The business mogul has been looking her best these days due to her dedicated workout with her trainer. In one of the clips from Kim’s first book club meeting with sister, Kourtney, and good friend, Chrissy Teigen, Kim revealed that her waist is now an incredible 24 inches.
In the meeting, the eldest Kardashian sister asked Kim, “I can’t take your hips seriously right now…because your waist is so small and then your hips are so big.”
The KKW fragrance owner then revealed that her waist had shrunk down to a mind-blowing 24 inches. She said, “It’s never been 24 ever in my life.”
Is Vogue India doing itself a disservice by not portraying ‘brown women’ on the cover of their magazine? Or do you think Kim Kardashian looked beautiful and did the shoot complete justice?!
