Seeing a covered-up version of Kim Kardashian-West, a pop culture icon who isn’t afraid to bare it all, is perhaps more shocking than seeing a nearly nude picture of her. In a shoot lensed by Jackie Nickerson (as well as in a short film for CR Fashion Book‘s 13th issue), KKW unearths her inner modesty and speaks more on her superstitions and beliefs. Read on to find out what spirits, signs, or supernatural symbols stand out to her the most.
When I do a shoot, I love to see the photographer’s version of me. I’m not this diva who shows up on set and has all these demands of specific angles and glam and how I want to look. I like doing things that aren’t me or aren’t the way that people typically see me, and I love to see that version too. This was my easiest shoot because I didn’t have to suck it in. I was just myself and it was more about attitude instead of showing off my body, which was different and refreshing. I think people don’t really see me as dressing so modest. What’s funny is that, though I obviously am very comfortable not being modest, my soul inside is kind of modest. My closest friends know that about me.
I can be superstitious at times, like before going on an airplane. My family and I always step onto the plane with the right foot first. Another superstition is that whenever we hear an ambulance, we always touch our hair. I also say a prayer that the person will be okay. I’m big on prayer and superstition together.
I believe there are signs from the spirit world all around us. When my dad was sick with cancer, we were lying out by his pool and I said, “If you die, you have to come back in the form of a bird.” We were driving on the freeway right before his funeral and this huge flock of birds flew over the 101. Everyone stopped because it was so crazy looking. I was like, “There you are.”
Kanye and I always reference birds. We seem to see a lot of black crows. I saw one on set today. I wish I had had my phone to take a picture because yesterday Kanye took a picture of the two black crows that are always at our house and always together. We always say that they are our parents hanging out together at our house.
