Kim Kardashian Covers New York Magazine’s Fashion Issue

In what’s become a highly-debated choice, Kim Kardashian is the cover girl for New York Magazine’s Fall 2012 Fashion issue. Despite the coverline which reads “Does Kim Kardashian belong on the cover of a Fashion Magazine?” the glossy publication is banking on the reality star to be a hit for their style-based annual issue.

Kim looked alluring in ensembles such as a Valentino high-neck, long-sleeve dress with beaded embroidery for the Pari Dukovic shot spread, while dishing about everything from her definition of success to dating the ever-fashionable Kanye West.

Take a look at some highlights from the interview:

On her decision to stay away from the rumor mill:
 “I used to be so involved with what’s going on around, what’s up with this person. I just really truly feel so much more calm now, and I just don’t care.”

On the advantages of dating a fashionable mate like Kanye West:
 “If I have a design meeting, or he has one, we come back and talk about how our meetings went. It’s cool, ’cause you can definitely get more in-depth with someone who actually knows what you’re talking about … So that’s been a fun similarity we have. I think it’s essential to have similarities. When this whole life is done, and it’s just the two of us sitting somewhere when we’re 80, you want to have things to talk about that you have in common. I think that’s something maybe I didn’t value as highly as a quality I cared about in someone.”

On her definition of success:
 “I don’t really have goals as far as, I want to be on a cover or something like that. I think my goals are more just expanding my line, and having my line be really successful. That’s the ultimate goal, I think, for me. I don’t say, ‘Oh, I want to be on this magazine or I want to do this.’ It’s all fun. And I love, definitely, turning into a different character. I think each shoot has a different personality.”
