Kim Kardashian West has graced countless magazine covers throughout her rise to fame, but today marks her first-ever cover shoot with 4-year-old daughter North West. The duo stars in a Jackie O–inspired photo shoot shot by Steven Klein for the new issue of Interview, donning matching 1960s-style frocks and white gloves.
The publication boldly declares Kardashian West and family as the modern-day embodiment of the American dream, likening her to Jackie Kennedy Onassis in terms of her ability to captivate the American public. With that said, the 36-year-old mother of two admits that it's "weird" for her when people call out North's name in public. "We have strict rules about the kids," she adds. "She lives such a normal life, believe it or not, at home."
For the Kardashian-Jenner clan, "normal" includes openly discussing issues like race, sexuality, and gender identity. "We want to raise our kids to be really aware," adds Kardashian West. "The more you talk about things and keep them out in the open, the more they won't be taboo. Kanye always has his family around and people who look like my daughter—that's important to me. She's obsessed with her curly hair, and if she finds someone who has the same hair, she runs to them and is like, 'you have curly hair like me?' And we get to talk about it."
