The Kardashians are the gift that keeps on giving, and this year was no different. This was the year the Kardashians finally started to make the shift from prevalence to relevance, with Kim on the cover of Vogue and Kendall Jenner an in-demand model. But, even as they gain respect, they never lose their sense of drama.
Here are the Kardashian moments that made 2014, as every year, the year of the Kardashian.
The Vogue cover
Kim broke the internet long before #BreakTheInternet. Their cover of April’s Vogue had pearls clutched and jaws dropped. A big deal was made of the usually classy mag’s choice to put a reality television star on its cover, despite the fact she’s a famous millionaire and that’s how magazine covers work.
Wintour later admitted that they got the cover, GASP, for attention: “I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and just put deeply tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine! Nobody would talk about us. It’s very important that people do talk about us.”
Bruce. Just Bruce in general.
A lot has been made this year regarding whether or not Bruce is transitioning, if he’s in the process of identifying as female, largely due to his plastic surgery work making him look more feminine. We don’t know if it’s true or not. It’s not our business. But either way, it’s not something to make fun of or judge—it’s not fair to the trans community or to Bruce himself. So, just leave Bruce alone.
