COSMOPOLITAN SOUTH AFRICA’S WORLD EXCLUSIVE WITH BLAC CHYNA

COSMOPOLITAN SOUTH AFRICA’S WORLD EXCLUSIVE WITH BLAC CHYNA

Cosmopolitan South Africa has revealed that their latest world exclusive cover shoot is with reality TV royalty, Blac Chyna.   In the exclusive interview, Chyna dishes on her relationship with Rob, their highly publicized struggles, and her determination to make it work. She also shares her feelings about becoming a part of the Kardashian family, and co-parenting with Tyga (now dating Rob’s half-sister, Kylie Jenner). Fashion Director Bev Nates and Art Director Juan Geel once again made the trip to LA, where they partnered with renowned photographer John Tsiavis to pull off the shoot. Of the “At home with Blac Chyna” theme, Acting Editor Kerrie Simon-Lawrence says, “Blac Chyna is such a mysterious character, and everyone really does want to know more about her. While she’s a businesswoman and has been for a long time, her life has really been plastered all over the media ever since she first got together with Rob Kardashian. So we wanted to create an intimate-feeling shoot, where we got to share with readers the ‘real’ Blac Chyna.” The shoot has also been a great opportunity for South African designers, with the Cosmo team commissioning from local labels for the roll-out. “We took items from Josh Myburgh, Romanda de Bastos, Shana Morland, and Emelia Nagel. On the cover, she wears a divine leotard by Sheila-Madge,” says Kerrie. In an exciting twist, Cosmo and Sheila-Madge will be giving away the cover look via a social media competition. Commenting on interviewing the star in LA, Kerrie says: “We loved working with Blac Chyna on this cover and interview. She’s fresh and has a devil-may-care attitude that...
