Kim Kardashian Covers Vogue’s March Issue

Posted on February 09, 2022

Vogue’s March cover star is Kim Kardashian. One of the world’s most famed modern icons is embracing her 40s as the decade to put herself first.

 

On putting herself first and prioritizing her health and family life: “For so long, I did what made other people happy and I think in the last two years I decided, I’m going to make myself happy. And that feels really good. And even if that created changes and caused my divorce, I think it’s important to be honest with yourself about what really makes you happy. I’ve chosen myself. I think it’s okay to choose you. My 40s are about being Team Me. I’m going to eat well. I’m going to work out. I’m going to have more fun, spend more time with my kids and the people who make me happy. I’m going to put my phone down. Unfollow if I don’t want to see something on Instagram. Khloé came up with the best phrase for that yesterday. She said, ‘Post and ghost.’ ”

On the impact she and her family has had on how people view themselves on social media: “There’s definitely an influence, both positive and negative, on how a whole group of people view themselves because of social media. I can see that. I’m not blocked off to the idea that it exists. But I try to think, Okay, if I’m raising my kids, how would I react if I felt like there were things on TikTok or Instagram that I wouldn’t want them to see and be a part of? We would have those conversations.”

On resisting over analyzing her effect on culture: She doesn’t devote much energy to analyzing her effect, for better or for worse, on the culture. For Kim, this is an act of self-preservation. “I just try to live my life and be happy for people. And I think when you just live your life like that, you block it out. It’s like a racehorse that puts on blinders so they can see clearly and straight. You’ve got to just be that racehorse, put on those blinders, and go. And if you start trying to see to the right or the left of you, you’re going to trip up.”

On her Met Gala look by Balenciaga: “I fought against it. I was like, I don’t know how I could wear the mask. Why would I want to cover my face? But Demna and the team were like, ‘This is a costume gala. This is not a Vanity Fair party where everyone looks beautiful. There’s a theme and you have to wear the mask. That is the look.’”

 

Vogue’s March 2022 issue is available on newsstands nationwide on February 22nd.
