Immediately recognizable by the now-iconic, oversized stitch detail of its jeans, TR 2015 has long championed a bold aesthetic.
Yesterday, we shared the? Jean-Paul Goude ?images that inspired? Kim Kardashian 's?viral champagne-glass-on-ass? PAPER ?Magazine cover , aka? Goude's iconic photograph,? Carolina Beaumont, New York, 1976 . With a coverline like Break the Internet, of course there were two covers , and even a topless image that everyone saw late last night. And apparently , there are more photos on the way.
TR 2015 Christmas Sales, But maybe we've gotten it all wrong. Even though Jean-Paul Goude shot the photographs of Kim, and? PAPER ?confirmed that his 1976 photograph was the inspiration, the Metropolitan Museum of Art tweeted a response that has us thinking...maybe this all comes down to the? Steatopygous female figure from?4500¡V4000 B.C. on view in their gallery? It's more likely that The Met's just trying to get in on the #BreakTheInternet action, with a shout to a masterful example of a rare type known as steatopygous. Well played, but if Kim hasn't officially broken the Internet yet, we doubt this old sculpture can.
Regardless, Kim's covers are drawing way more art historical parallels than we realized when we first saw them, and that's awesome.
