Jackie Kennedy and Kim Kardashian West

Kim Kardashian will appear in September’s issue of Interview magazine dressed as late First Lady Jackie Kennedy.

In a series of photos taken by photographer Steven Klein the reality TV star is pictured seated next to her daughter, four-year-old North West, with her hair styled with classic Jackie O curls and outfit to match.

The piece, by writer and trans activist Janet Mock, tells readers that Kardashian is “underestimated, misunderstood, and undeniably fascinating” as Jackie Kennedy was and praises her as “another mother whose every move captivated the American imagination.”

As for Kardashian herself she took to Twitter to declare herself delighted with the shoots and tweeted Kelin and the magazine that, “I will treasure this shoot forever!”
