CR Fashion Book has been on a very slippery slope of late and with Carine Roitfeld announcing she’s changing her role at the publication, we aren’t hopeful for a return to form in the near future. Not even Cynthia Erivo, Gigi Hadid and Lily-Rose Depp covers have sufficed over recent years. Now it’s the Kardashian-Jenners’ turn. The first family of reality TV pose together for a family portrait shot by Heji Shin. Styled by Ron Hartleben, the clan is decked out in custom Mugler with matriarch Kris Jenner going solo for the alternative black and white cover (after the jump).
Neither cover appealed to our forum members. “See, it’s covers like these that tell me that Carine would be no better than Glenda [Bailey] as EIC of Harper’s Bazaar. The Kardashians on your cover in 2019? Grasping at straws!” called out Benn98.
“I doubt the people who are into them would even know or care enough about this magazine to spend $15 on an E! promo-looking cover,” mocked Melancholybaby.
“This is revolting and they look ridiculous. Those poor Mugler pieces!” declared Nomar.

“How utterly desperate and irrelevant is Carine… This Us Weekly cover is a new low for her (if that was even possible),” jjjmmm chimed in.
Also unimpressed was dodencebt: “What the hell is this? I can’t believe this is the same CR Fashion Book from a few years ago. It looks like a TV Guide cover.”
“I often like Kim on a cover, but this just looks like a straight promo for the TV series, but arranged in an awkward manner. It looks like they’ve shot them in separate groups of three, then superimposed one image beside the other. U.S. Cosmopolitan gives us better Kardashian covers than this,” added tigerrouge.
