New York Fashion Week may have hardly begun, but Carine Roitfeld has already made a splash by revealing the cover star of the third issue of CR Fashion Book: new mom Kim Kardashian. The announcement was made when Riccardo Tisci, the art director behind the shoot, instagrammed a photo of Roitfeld holding a copy of the issue with the caption, "Great experience #family #love #Friends @kimkardashian @crfashionbook."

The spread, photographed by Karl Lagerfeld, was shot in May, just before Kardashian gave birth to daughter North. "Pregnancy is something that I always love," Roitfeld said of the choice to photograph Kardashian while still pregnant. "It's about hope and the future and a new baby."
While the choice of Kardashian for the cover of CR Fashion Book may be surprising, Roitfeld made sure to distinguish what appears in the issue from that of a tabloid: "This is not something for a gossip magazine that goes in the trash," she said. "This is a magazine that is a collector's item." Once we get our hands on an issue — it hits newsstands on Sept. 12 — we don't imagine we'll let it go, either.
