Kim recently became a mother for the third time, this time through surrogacy. Her half-sister, Kylie Jenner, also welcomed her first child in February.
idc about Kim Kardashian being on vogue India BUT
the only thing that’s annoying is the many brown to dark skin Indians who are underrepresented by their light skinned counterparts????
especially since many of them have just as beautiful (if not more) features

Have you seen the people in offices like Vogue India/fashion industry/Bollywood?
They’re out of touch. They live in their own world. The result?
Kim Kardashian in a lehenga. India is rich with woman idols. Gorgeous women of substance and beauty.
They picked. Kim.

The general consensus is that the brand could’ve employed an Asian person and Kim is already a prominent figure in magazines and media generally. It also sparked conversations of white washing Indian culture.
It’s worth noting that Vogue India gets talked about the most when it features white women.
