Well, the queen of #selfies herself Kim Kardashian is officially publishing a book of, yup, selfies. Entitled Selfish, the book is coming out through Rizzoli’s Universe and will retail for $19.99.
According to Rizzoli’s website: “It will feature many never-before-seen personal images from one of the most recognizable and iconic celebrities in the world.” 352 of Kim’s selfies will be in the book, but the real question here is which ones will be included?
After all, Kim has hundreds of selfies to choose from—and we’re only talking about the ones we’ve actually seen posted to her social media feeds.
Surely the book will focus on the selfies that helped encapsulate big events from the life of Kim, Kanye and North in the last few years. With that in mind, here’s our picks for seven selfies that must be in “Selfish.”
1. Pregnant Kim selfie
No surrogacy rumors here—Kim happily shows off her baby bump! Kim’s pregnancy was a crucial step in the narrative that surrounded her romance with Kanye. It was the first sign that she was serious about this relationship. Motherhood also seemed like a huge move toward maturity for Kim.
2. Kim and Donatella Versace at the 2013 Met Gala selfie
A still very very pregnant Kim attended the Met Gala in 2013 with Kanye. While she was there, she took a selfie with Donatella Versace. If that’s not book-worthy, I don’t know what is. This was also a big fashion moment for Kim because she wore a form-fitting floral gown by Riccardo Tisci with attached gloves and matching shoes. It was a love/hate outfit.
3. The post-pregnancy body swimsuit selfie that rocked the world
This was the selfie that launched a thousand thinkpieces, as cultural critics tried to grapple with the sheer magnificence of Kim’s derriere. This was the first revealing photo that Kim had posted of her body since she had North, revealing simultaneously that she “still had it” per se, and also, that she wasn’t going to stop flaunting it any time soon. I for one, am 100% onboard with this photo.
4. The pouting Kanye ‘Yeezus’ tour selfie
So Kanye wouldn’t smile right before he went onstage, but this selfie felt like the ultimate backstage pass. It also proved who was controlling the couple’s image—Kim wants a selfie? Then she gets one.
5. The Kanye ALMOST makes a kiss-face too selfie
When you fall in love, it changes you, it makes you do things you wouldn’t otherwise do. Never has that been truer of a human being than it is for human God Kanye West. He clearly prefers to frown constantly, but for Kim, he’ll even do the hint of a kiss face to please her. Let’s be clear, this isn’t a full-on kiss face. But I’m willing to bet that by the time Nori gets old enough to ask her dad to mug with her in Instas, ‘Ye will be straight up grinning.
6. The Elizabeth Taylor selfie
Do I even need to describe this one? Sometimes a picture says a thousand words. Kim Kardashian is simply copying her idol, Elizabeth Taylor in an iconic, classic, stunning pose. It rules. Put it in the book.
7. Kim and Nori good morning selfie
Kim, North and the title to one of Kanye’s songs. The perfect Instagram.
