Kim recently became a mother for the third time, this time through surrogacy. Her half-sister, Kylie Jenner, also welcomed her first child in February.

Kim Kardashian appeared on her first Indian magazine cover and pictures from the photoshoot have been doing the rounds online. The reality TV star and business magnate posed in an Anita Dongre ensemble for the March issue of Vogue India.

Kim spoke about her love for Indian clothes in the accompanying interview. “The saris, the jewellery, the clothes—everything was so beautiful!” she said. Her look was styled by Anaita Shroff Adajania with photographs by Greg Swales.

Vogue India and Kardashian shared images from the shoot on Instagram. “Instagram royalty Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) has a fantasy moment in our #March 2018 issue!” the post was captioned.

Her pictures got a lot of attention on social media. While several people took offence to Vogue’s decision to feature a non-Indian on the cover, a Kardashian fan wrote, “I’m Indian! And Kim you killed it in a Lengha! Ignore all the hate! Thanks for representing my culture beautifully girl.” Another person wondered “so when are you coming to Bollywood?”
