Katherine Bernhardt’s paintings embody cosmopolitan edginess. Her lush canvases, which themselves pose as the currency of beguiling luxury, incorporate all the fantasy trappings of seduction, decadence and corruption, each charged with sordid soap operatic climax and the command of true-to-type bitches and divas.
Kim Kardashian is Armenian, and if you are Armenian, you don’t like the Turks, because there was a lot of Armenians killed by the Turks year ago. It was a genocide, actually, and Kim, not knowing she was going to be on the cover of Cosmopolitan’s Turkish edition, is not happy about it. And we totally agree with her. According to Kardashian’s team, they were given a list of countries where the magazine would be shown and Turkey was not on there.
Here is Kim’s response:
“Cosmopolitan Magazine has a number of international editions all around the world that run in various territories, and when I did this shoot for the international covers I had no idea that Turkey was planning to run my story on their cover THIS month, considering Genocide Remembrance Day is this month. My Armenian heritage means a lot to me and I’ve been brought up to be incredibly proud of my family’s background and culture so as an Armenian-American woman it is a huge honor for me to be on the first ever Armenian Cosmopolitan cover.”
