Kim Kardashian, apart from being a reality TV personality, model, businesswoman, socialite and trainee lawyer, is surprisingly one of GQ’s “Men Of The Year” for 2023.
Kim founded the Skims clothing brand as well as cosmetics lines, perfumes, an energy drink, a mobile game, and a private equity fund. She has been named “Tycoon Of The Year” on this year’s list, which follows her newest line of men’s underwear. The spread features Kim adorning predominantly masculine attire, such as a patterned tie and pinstripe shirt, a bomber jacket, an oversized blazer, and a cropped tank top bearing dumbbells. The apparel serves as trivial props to the predominantly masculine settings, including the gym, an office desk, or a water cooler, in which she is photographed. Kim’s deliberate choice of designs across the images serves as a lighthearted allusion to her efforts to challenge conventional masculine stereotypes and establish her authority in the realm of business. This is evidenced by the selection on GQ’s MOTY 2023 inventory. Some social media users are puzzled and even upset at her inclusion as the cover star for GQ’s 2023 “Men Of The Year” competition.
