Kim Kardashian West will be featured on the cover of Vogue Australia for the second time next week and first time for Australian designer Alex Perry.
She will be appearing on the cover of June issue, which will be released on May 16, says The Age.
Kardashian will be styled by close friend and Vogue’s fashion director Christine Centenera. The reality TV star will also flaunt a custom Alex Perry corset over a loose fitting Yeezy blouse from her husband, Kanye West’s fashion brand.
This is Perry’s second cover in the same month after the upcoming June issue of Marie Claire, with “Home & Away” star Pia Miller. The designer is also known for co-hosting Australia’s Next Top Model.
Perry spent Sunday night at the Logies with friends along with co-stars Jennifer Hawkins and Cheyenne Tozzi.
Perry has become quite famous for his corsetry and purely stunning gowns with cinched waists, since opening his first studio in 1992. Over the years, he has designed dresses for Kardashian’s sister Kylie Jenner, Jennifer Lopez, Miranda Kerr and Gigi Hadid.
Perry’s Fashion Week Australia shows have been highly publicised events for a long time. In 2014, Australia’s Next Top Model alumna Cassie van den Dungen came into the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
The model was criticised for being extremely underweight and it made the then editor of Marie Claire – Jackie Frank, to call her manager. Frank asked her manager about her health.
“When I saw those legs I nearly died. I rang the model agent and said ‘Why is that girl walking down the runway when she’s clearly not healthy’,” Frank.
However, Perry later confessed that it was “a serious lapse of judgement” to have featured the then 21-year-old, says The Sydney Morning Herald.
On Sunday, the reality TV star and emerging fashion icon posted the cover with her 69 million fans on Instagram. Vogue Australia shared the cover frame several hours later.
