Kim Kardashian seems like she may have found her perfect match in Kanye WestÂ—and in record time, too, after her Prince Charming, Kris Humphries, turned out to be a frog for her after all, which led to what has been some dicey divorce proceedings. But the reality TV show diva and the rapper have stuck it out, appearing nearly everywhere together and defeating the rumors that they're in it to win attention and more fame, not because they're truly in love. The romantic relationship of these longtime friends-turned-lovers has even survived a few West cameos on Keeping up with the Kardashians, which definitely counts for something!
Apparently Kardashian now may even be providing some professional, not just personal, inspiration for West, as well. Ever since he previewed the cover for his new album, Cruel Summer, on Twitter a few days ago, there have been some comparisons made between the artistic portrait of the topless femme and his girlfriend.
As seen on The Hollywood Gossip, the white marble-effect cover features the illustration of a statuesque-like female, which summons thoughts of Greek mythology and images of goddesses, especially with the leafy flora surrounding the classically rendered woman. Her nude status is more artsy than sexy or provocative, given she's more statue than snapshot of a real person.
While the curves are there, this doppelgÃ¤nger theory, also discussed by The Hollywood Gossip, may be stretching it a bit too far! Kanye West may have "fell in love with Kim" (most likely calling out Kim Kardashian!) on his now-famous "Theraflu" track, but was he really envisioning his girl when creating this album cover?
"Loosely inspired" is about as far as this comparison can go. Kardashian has been known to favor classic elegance, sometimes channeling a Greek goddess-like fashion aesthetic for the red carpet. Perhaps that sartorial inclinationÂ—and her undeniably curvaceous physiqueÂ—provided all the influence that West needed for this rather outside-the-box cover art.
