Kim Kardashian ghosted on social media right after her Paris robbery nearly three weeks ago, and has been radio silent ever since. Her absence from the spotlight is allegedly costing her millions. But thankfully, the Kardashian bench runs deep and she has plenty of siblings ready to fill in.
Each of the girls — Kylie, Khloe, Kendall and even Kourtney — have been picking up the slack in recent weeks. But are any of them ready for prime time? Take a look and see.
Kylie and Khloé have been holding down the fort on Instagram and with the paparazzi, even dressing like Kim for the cameras. Kylie stepped out in Calabasas earlier this week rocking Kim's patented waist-trainer over t-shirt look while Khloé opted for jeans, lingerie, a double choker and "wet-look" hair at the launch of her Good American denim collection:
Kourtney, meanwhile, has been more visible than usual and has been taking over the on-camera duties, giving interviews to local media to promote the family's coterie of shows, apps and products. Sadly, it looks like she could've used a little more coaching before hitting the airwaves:
Even Kendall is doing her part by providing Twitter and the blogs with this week's Photoshop controversy (take a look at the knees):
Artists Lizzie Fitch and Ryan Trecartin explore how cameras, social media, and reality TV have changed the way we engage with the world and with one another. In this project for W’s Art Issue, titled "placebo pets," supermodels @KendallJenner and @GigiHadid appear as super friendly, domesticated humanoid pets. Fitch and Trecartin see in our relationship to pets a parallel with our relationship to technology, in the way that we’ve been trained to adapt our behavior, our language, and the images we choose to present our changing selves. “There’s a certain power that animals have over us when they respond to us in unexpected, friendly ways,” says Trecartin. “And it’s really them domesticating us almost more than us domesticating them, because they’re training us to want them. Training and taming something is not one-sided. We created social media, but then it changed us because we interacted with it." Read more in an interview with @DianeSolway on wmag.com.
