[They were] On time, nice to everybody, tweeted out a link. You know, when they tweeted it last time, it almost broke our website. Again, it came to us, like, Can you imagine if Jean-Paul Goude shot her? We reached out to her people. Kim and her publicist are super smart and get it. And Kim wanted to do cool, amazing things. And very often, with these super-famous people, they’re up for things if there’s an interesting photographer who’s super respected, super famous, someone who they know does amazing work. Kim said that she would do it with Jean-Paul. And he had some scheduling things, but he was into it. And really, it was shockingly easy. And he lives in Paris.
She got to Paris for certain things in Fashion Week. She arrived chased by paparazzi on motorbikes. It’s incredible, the insanity that ensues wherever she goes. And she, again, is on time and super nice to everyone. Her attitude was, ‘If we’re gonna do this, let’s really go there.’
Did she get creatively involved, as well?
Totally. We ended up trying one thing that didn’t run and that we didn’t think worked. We hadn’t planned for her to take her clothes off. She wanted to and it kind of fit with the thing, and Jean-Paul was super excited about her attitude and Kim was super excited. Everyone was excited about working together and making magic. I mean, wait until you guys see the inside photos. I can’t even — I cannot even tell you. They’re just so amazing and so shocking and so bananas.”
