Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kim Kardashian may not be very generous about sharing pics of her baby daughter, but she’s certainly charitable when it comes to photos of herself. In her latest Instagram shot, the reality star and mother of one channels the legendary Elizabeth Taylor, mimicking a 1991 photo of the iconic actress right down to the towel on her head. Sheesh, if I had a dollar for every selfie Keek took, I’d be 1/657th as rich as she is.
The picture, which Kim posted earlier today, shows one of Liz’s most memorable photos in the background, with the reality star striking the same pose up front. Both women have plush, white towels wrapped around their heads, held in place with one perfectly manicured hand flashing a HUGE diamond ring. Kim captioned the photo with a simple “my idol” along with an emoticon of a ring.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has made no secret over the years of her admiration for Elizabeth Taylor, and once even sought her advice on how to be more like her. Just a month before Taylor’s death in 2011, Kim was able to interview her for Harper’s Bazaar, asking her, “You are my idol. But I’m six husbands and some big jewels behind. What should I do?” (Yes, she really did ask her that.) Taylor replied with the grace and poise that defined her, saying, “…Follow your passion, follow your heart, and the things you need will come.”
Now that’s some solid advice for anyone…except for maybe Kanye West. When he follows his passion and heart, things tend to get a little nuts.
So what are your thoughts on Kim Kardashian’s latest selfie? Is it an honor to Liz Taylor or a disgrace that she would dare to compare herself to such a legend? Tell us what you think in the comments!
