Kim Kardashian, Naomi Campbell and Cher Transform Into Mod Bikers For 'CR Fashion Book'
For the magazine’s “Power” issue.
Kim Kardashian, Naomi Campbell and Cher — three driven and influential women in their own right — take center stage for the “Power” issue of CR Fashion Book. The iconic trio talk philanthropy and staying true to their beliefs in an interview; the accompanying editorial, lensed by duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, casts them as ’60s-inspired bikers.
Kim K opens up about her newfound passion for social justice (notably, her petition for Donald Trump to grant clemency to Alice Johnson Smith), a subject that will be explored in upcoming documentary Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project. “Everyone told me I would ruin my career if I went to the White House, but that doesn’t mean anything to me. My reputation over someone’s life? That didn’t make any sense,” the reality-star-turned-law-student said.
Campbell, known for her outspoken advocacy for diversity and AIDS research, touches on the personal losses she’s experienced at the hands of the illness. “Ray [Petri] was one of the first people I knew with AIDS,” Campbell said of the late stylist. “What struck me the most about his sickness, especially the end of it, was how poorly others treated him… I do believe that there is a cure.”
Lastly, iconic musician Cher — whose Twitter continues to baffle and delight fans — explains her decision to go by a single name (“I never really thought of it as a power thing…One day I just realized, ‘I’m Cher. I don’t need anything else.’”), as well as her enduring relationship with Bob Mackie, the designer responsible for some of the singer’s most memorable looks.
