Kim Kardashian channels one of her idols, Elizabeth Taylor, for this shot captured for online Magazine, Violet Grey. With makeup by Pat McGrath, Kim takes on Taylor’s legendary role of Cleopatra in the beauty shoot where metallic eye makeup is the main focus. Photographed by Ben Hassett, the reality television star dazzles in the closeup shots.
“I love Elizabeth,” says Kim. “Pat and I have had conversations about how iconic she is, and how iconic Cleopatra is…I would have done anything—I would have trusted Pat’s vision no matter what she wanted—but I was really excited that it was the Cleopatra vibe.”
