On Tuesday, Interview magazine unveiled a cover story starring Kylie Jenner. The editorial photos were quite racy (you may see them here) and showed Kylie in a variety of scenarios. She sported tush-less PVC chaps in several shots, and she also posed inside a box like a sex doll. The internet did not break (nor did it for big sister Kim, although she continues to try), but people enjoyed commenting upon Kylie’s assets.
It took awhile for people to stop staring at the chaps. Eventually, though, people realized the able-bodied Jenner posed in a gold wheelchair. Photographer Steven Klein appears to have styled Jenner as an inanimate object throughout the shoot. It remains fruitless to dig for deep meaning regarding the Kardashian-Jenners, but Klein may have tried to get artsy with Kylie’s media image. She’s the youngest of the group and grew up as an object of artifice. Kylie was taught to be an object for consumption, which is reflected in most of the shoot. But, the wheelchair photo is a whole other ballgame.
