Would You Like to See Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Making Babies on the Cover of L’Officiel Hommes?

The answer to the question posed in the headline should be, according to all that is good and just and fair in the world, "No!" – and yet here we are.

Yes, you did want to see Kim Kardashian and Kanye West copulate on the cover of L'Officiel Hommes Paris' Spring 2013 issue. And now that you've seen it, you can't unsee it. I'm sorry. We don't offer lobotomies here at The Fashion Spot. 

This is really the problem with all things Kimye: They are no longer (in Kim's case, particularly) famous for being famous, they are famous for being hated, and it's this self-perpetuating thing, an infinite feedback loop of their fame and our hatred of them and how our hatred fans their fame. It's like a bad codependent relationship. 

It's probably beyond the scope of this blog post to try figure out why we're stuck on Kim and Kanye, but I can't fault L'Officiel for this cover. It's cynical, but sometimes at work you just have to do things that … work. Nearly every blog on the Internet is a cup of coffee away from putting up a post with a headline like, SEE KIM AND KANYE SEX ON MAGAZINE SHOCKING. And L'Officiel is going to get more attention and more newsstand sales than if they ran a cover which featured a real person who does interesting things.
