KIM KARDASHIAN & THE NEW W

(photo: Fashionista) Kim Kardashian covers the November issue of W clad solely in Futura Bold Oblique. (Ick)  Let’s call shenanigans now because honestly – what are the odds that Kardashian is even remotely familiar with Barbara Kruger? Seriously. I don’t know how this furthers Stefano Tonchi’s quest for interesting people but – it is…interesting to …
