It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, but the reality television family is kicking off the season in a … umm … different way this year. On an E! Special, “Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s: A Very Merry Christmas,” viewers of the hour-long show got an inside look into how the over-the-top photo came together.
Celebrity photographer David LaChapelle was the artistic vision behind the photo, which typically includes a wide-shot of the family dressed to the nines and looking very serious. This year, however, all of the men in the family we’re left out at the request of LaChapelle, save for Bruce Jenner who insisted he be included in the family card. The card features the women in all black standing among broken mannequin pieces, pyramids, photos of the Kardashian sisters and a slew of magazine covers.
Kim’s baby with rapper Kanye West was left out of the photo, although Kourtney Kardashian’s children, Mason and Penelope, made the cut.
