Last month, the rapper dropped a picture on her Instagram account to tease her upcoming album 9, which saw her covered in Chanel jewelry, as well as having the brand’s iconic logo stamped into her grey wig.
Her photographer, Michael Antonio, says the shoot was designed to “show an evolution of her aesthetic.”
“All the photos are promotional material for the new project she’s working on, 9, her next album,” he explained at the time:
“The direction of the photo was essentially a self homage to her. The entire shoot was to show an evolution of her aesthetic. She’s had Chanel hair and her whole body covered in Louis Vuitton logos before and we wanted to keep up with tradition. I knew that I wanted it to be fresh and new, but also something that echoed one of the many reasons why we love Kim.”
