Kim’s holiday cheer comes as she faces criticism for her unusually dark skin for a photoshoot.
Lavish gifts: ‘Each year every family member picks a color and vibe so we know who the gifts are from. This year we chose creamy velvet!’ she wrote on her Instagram Story
The shoot for 7Hollywood magazine featured the Skims founder in a black slimming dress while dripping in diamonds as many say she is ‘attempting to look like a black woman.’
‘It’s the lighting that makes her look darker in this specific image,’ a source close to the Kardashian member told Page Six.
‘There are multiple covers and images from this shoot where the lighting looks more natural. People are so quick to find the negative in everything and also often forget that she is of Armenian descent.’
Details: The packages were all wrapped in a beige fabric that match the aesthetic of the Kardashian-West family home
‘Would you please stop with the blackface it’s ridiculous to say [at] least,’ one user commented on the photo.
‘She look black in that 2nd photo … hmmm here she go again.’ another quipped up.
But this isn’t the first time the mother-of-four has been accused of crossing the line.
Backlash: The Skims founder is receiving major backlash for her shoot for 7Hollywood magazine where she is pictured with darker skin
Back in 2017, during a Jackie Kennedy-themed photoshoot for Interview Magazine with her daughter North West after some said she was darkened her skin tone during that shoot as well, as she posed as the late First Lady.
For the issue, Kim dressed up in a handful of classic pieces inspired by Jackie, as the headline referred to her as ‘America’s New First Lady.’
Kim has yet to respond to backlash regarding either incident.
