It’s become as big an annual unveiling as the tree at Rockefeller Center: the new Kardashian Christmas Card has arrived! It was shot by flashy photographer and video director David LaChappelle, and there are many aspects that require discussion. Such as…
1. A Kardashian is missing! Sibling Rob is MIA from this shot. As he explained in the Kardashian Christmas special last night, Rob is still struggling with his weight and did not want to be photographed for the card.
2. The spouses and significant others are missing. We didn’t entirely expect Kanye West to pose for this card, and the special also addressed that Khloe Kardashian and her husband Lamar Odom are having their own issues. Scott Disick then agreed to bow out and let the card be about the women, but Bruce Jenner got upset about the prospect of not being included in the card. In light of his split from Kris Jenner, it all seemed like too much change.
3. Of course, this resulted in Bruce being stuck in a tube in the pic. All the other ladies look proud and sexy, but patriarch Bruce is trapped in a glass tube, and pushing to get out. Is this a metaphor?
4. What is this room? At first glance, it almost looks like an abandoned casino, with the flashy neon lights on the ceiling and the big dollar sign. But look a little bit closer and there’s a “Coming Soon” sign, which is more like a movie theater. David LaChapelle described it as a “pop culture apocalypse” during the special.
5. The Jenner sisters are standing on burned up copies of magazines with the Kardashian family on the cover. What are they trying to say? Note that Kanye West’s Rolling Stone cover in which he posed as Jesus is also part of the mess.
6. There is loads of Kim Kardashian throughout the space. The walls are, in some places, made to look as if they have old Kim posters on them. With her prize place on the left hand side of the pic, she is clearly made to look like the most important member of this family.
7. Mason Disick is super over it. I love how everyone else looks super glam (aside from Bruce, again), and he’s just flopped over on an abandoned car seat, over it.
9. Is that the Illuminati eye between Kendall and Kylie? Conspiracy theorists, get on it!
