There is no doubt that Kim Kardashian loves taking selfies…and there is no doubt that she has perfected her selfie pout, her selfie gaze, and her selfie head tilt.
But to say that she started the ‘Selfie Movement’…we are not so sure.
When Kim Kardashian-West announced that she’s releasing Selfish, an aptly-named book featuring over 1,000 of her selfies, which is due to hit shelves April 28, 2015, her fans were ecstatic.
The book has now been listed on Amazon with a description supplied (no book cover yet though). In the description of the book and Kim’s rise to fame she is compared to Marilyn Monroe and called a trailblazer of the ‘selfie movement’.
It states, “The selfie photography of Kim Kardashian, featuring many never-before-seen personal images from one of the most recognizable and iconic celebrities in the world. From her early beginnings as a wardrobe stylist, Kim Kardashian has catapulted herself into becoming one of the most recognizable celebrities in Hollywood. Hailed by many (including Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci) as the modern-day personification of Marilyn Monroe, Kim has become a true American icon. With her curvaceous style, successful reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, DASH clothing store, makeup and perfume lines, she has acquired a massive fan following in the multi-millions. Through social media (Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook), Kim connects with her fans on a daily basis, sharing details of her life with her selfie photography. Widely regarded as a trailblazer of the “selfie movement”—a modern-day self-portrait of the digital age—Kim has mastered the art of taking flattering and highly personal photos of oneself. For the first time in print, this book presents some of Kim’s favorite selfies in one volume—from her favorite throwback images to current ultra-sexy glam shots—and provides readers with a behind-the-scenes look into this larger-than-life star.”
