Kim­mie Oh

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - FRONT PAGE - ANNE MARIE SCANLON

Nature, fa­mously, ab­hors a vac­uum, and as the present in­cum­bents of the White House — the Yuge Or­ange one and his Fem­bot mis­sus — pro­vide nei­ther style nor sub­stance, the Yanks have been des­per­ately try­ing to find po­lit­i­cal and fash­ion in­spo. En­ter Kim Kar­dashian “Amer­ica’s New First Lady”, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est In­ter­view mag­a­zine cover. Of course, this has caused bother. First, Kim has kept her clothes on. Then there’s the clothes them­selves — Kim is do­ing an im­per­son­ation of the late Jackie Kennedy dur­ing her White House years. The only thing that could have caused a big­ger stir was if Kim had donned a blonde wig and a pie-crust col­lar and had her pic­ture taken in front of the Taj Ma­hal. (The irony is that Diana and Jackie are even more pow­er­ful in death than they ever were in life.) Then there’s Kim’s hus­band, Yeezus him­self, Kanye West. The cover has sparked fears that Kanye is pre­par­ing to run for the high­est of­fice. And why not? Amer­ica is the land of op­por­tunism.
