Kanye West hold daughter North on shoulders and son Saint in his arms in recent picture
The September issue of Harper's Bazaar is set to feature "Icons" from different fields. One of the many celebrities to be featured is Kanye West, who appears alongside his eldest children North and Saint for the editorial.
Overseen by French editor Carine Roitfield, the theme came about after she wanted to meet the families of some of her biggest music idols due to her family-oriented views. Speaking to WWD, she shared how great it was to see all these legendary superstars with their loved ones.
“It was amazing to see that some of the industry’s most groundbreaking rock stars have a sense of tenderness with their loved ones — even if they are adults.”
For Kanye's issue, the rapper poses for photographer Mario Sorrenti, and during his cover interview, speaks about his role as a father to his three young children. When asked about his children's future, he shares:
“I hope my children never lose their confidence to society.”
As a teaser for their iconic September issue, Harper's Bazaar shared the cover with Kanye in it on their Instagam account. In the adorable snap, Kanye being Kanye, posed without smiling as he carried his son Saint in his arms. Meanwhile, North could be seen riding her dad's shoulders, covering half of his face with her hand.
The cover read "Families that Rock", which definitely describes the adorable trio on the cover, who seemed like naturals as they posed in front of the camera.
This is most definitely a far cry from Kim's Easter photograph of their family, where she had such a hard time keeping all of her children still. In that particular snap, Saint could be seen impatiently trying to get away from where they were standing, eager to be doing something else rather than posing for a family photo under the scorching heat of the sun.
Fans may expect to see more of Saint and North West alongside their father in the issue, which also features big names like Bruce Springsteen, Christina Aguilera, Lionel Richie, Mariah Carey, Billy Idol, Steven Tyler, and Erykah Badu who will also be posing with their children.
