Kim Kardashian's lengthy interview for Gilt Groupe's DuJour magazine features all kinds of interesting tidbits. Amidst a thorough analysis of the Keeping Up with the Kardashian star's fascinating appeal (The Hollywood Reporter's Janice Min calls it her "secret sauce" and legendary lensmen Bruce Webber says she "makes you want to take care of her"), we learn that her boyfriend, Kanye West, won't let her sign autographs when they're out together and Mugler creative director Nicola Formichettiis helping "re-create her image," as seen here.
The article also reveals that season 9 of KUWTK will be her last, but Kim K was quick to clarify things on her blog yesterday: "As everyone knows, we are extremely proud of the show and all of us are staying on through at least season 10. The show remains to be my number 1 priority and it's a big part of my life and I enjoy every moment of it [...] The fact is that I have many goals that I still need to reach and accomplish and I (like so many of you) don't know where my life will be in the next couple of years, but I'm looking forward to continuing this journey." Whew.
