For their latest Magazine Issue, Hapers Baazar got in Bed with Kim and Kanye West "The Icons" and had a pretty decent conversation and amazing pictures to show for it. Photographed by the legend himself Karl Lagerfeld, See more after the cut.
Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West's house sits atop a steep driveway in a gated community in Los Angeles's Bel Air neighborhood. Kanye, on the phone, is pacing in front of the house, occasionally obscured by a column or a shiny silver sports car. He waves me in with a publicly infrequent smile and apologizes for his workout gear: Miami Heat shorts and a black T-shirt.
This is not really their house, though. This is a stage home where the family—West, Kardashian, and their children, North, three, and Saint, nine months—are camping (a term used loosely; the place is majestically minimal) for the next few weeks until their new home is finally ready. Prior to this, they'd spent more than a year at the Calabasas home of Kim's mother, Kris Jenner.
Kim click-clacks in, wearing a long, khaki Lycra dress—"a Yeezy sample"—and full, precise makeup. Kanye perches on a coffee table between two gigantic white couches. On the table are some art books: Annie Leibovitz, the architect Álvaro Siza, and oddly, one titled Great Stud-Farms of the World. "Huh?" Kanye says when I ask if, for any reason, he's into stud farms."Nah, that's not our book.That's for staging."
And when it comes to staging, Kim and Kanye know a thing or two...
Kanye West: I think we should get an outdoor shower.
Kim Kardashian West: Well, outside would be freezing, so maybe one inside and one outside. One and one.
KW: But there's a way that you can open the glass, like a sunroof. I'm thinking about the plaster too, around the bathtub.
KKW: We'll discuss.
Laura Brown: Okay! So, this is in no particular order. Kanye, your favorite body part—your own or Kim's.
KW: Is the face a body part? My favorite body part of Kim's: heart.
KKW: Awww, now I have to say the same. But of my own, I like my upper stomach. I just seem to always have abs.When I'm not really pregnant, I have a great two-pack. [Laughs.] And of Kanye's? I have to say his heart. And I've always loved his legs.
The conversation got more interesting...Read more of it from the source Haper's BAZAAR.
