The Kardashians have revealed their new Christmas card, an annual tradition the reality TV family shares with the world to mark the start of the holiday season. But compared to last year's conservative Kardashian Christmas card, which included the entire family including spouses and children, this year's holiday card was the complete opposite. The new 2013 Kardashian Christmas card features skimpy dresses, dramatic poses, and an over-the-top set decorated with naked mannequins and a giant dollar bill sign. It's definitely their most elaborate Christmas effort yet.
Of course, Kim Kardashian steals the spotlight on the 2013 Kardashian Christmas card by placing herself closest to the camera in a typical Kim Kardashian-style dress. The skintight black gown with its giant slit up the left side and keyhole cutout shows off Kim's killer curves and bountiful cleavage. Her voluminous blonde hair bounces off her shoulders as she gives her usual smoldering look, parting her lips and staring with come-hither eyes.
The Kardashian Christmas card has a number of other Kardashian-Jenner family members standing around Kim in some, well, awkward poses. Kylie and Kendall Jenner stand on the left in the back. The two are styled in very similar long black dresses with large slits up the left sides, along with headdresses. While Kylie's dress has long sleeves, Kendall sports long opera gloves and positions herself in a strange pose with her arms above her head, as if directing traffic.
Khloe stands out in a black cocktail dress with her voluminous hair, sitting next to Kourtney's son Mason. Kourtney stands next to Khloe in her own black cocktail dress, holding her daughter Penelope in her arms. Surprisingly, Penelope is the only person on the holiday card not wearing black, but instead looking adorable in white.
But Mama Jenner sure is giving Miss Kim Kardashian a run for her money on the Kardashian Christmas card as she sits on top of a ticket booth to the left of Kourtney. The flashy mama holds her arms high above her head, wearing a black dress, a Cleopatra-like headdress, and a huge smile as flashes a whole lot of leg to the camera.
And sure enough, the last family member presented in this year's Christmas card is Bruce Jenner who is seen in a black tuxedo with shoulder length hair inside a clear case, which he seems to be desperately trying to get out of. Of course, Bruce is positioned to the side of the more glamorous Kim and Kris Kardashian.
Though Christmas cards are usually fun and heartwarming, the 2013 Kardashian Christmas card instead strikes us as abstract and odd. While the family shows off some pretty awkward poses, it's clear once again that Kim is the ruler in their household as they are even surrounded by photos of Kim on the card.
But not all of the Kardashian-Jenner family were included in this year's eccentric card. The 2013 Kardashian Christmas card is missing almost all of the male members, except Mason and Bruce. Rob Kardashian declined to appear in the card, along with the girls' significant others, Kanye West (Kim), Scott Disick (Kourtney) and Lamar Odom (Khloe). Kim's baby daughter North West is also missing from the card.
The photographer David LaChapelle reportedly only wanted the female family members in this year's card, but Kourtney insisted that her son Mason should be in the photo since he is part of the family. Meanwhile, Bruce was reported saying, "It's not the girls' Christmas card, it's our family Christmas card. We've done it for 23 years and they want to change it? It's your mom's and my Christmas card."
Perhaps Kanye, Disick, Odom and Rob Kardashian are all happy to have been absent from the card this year, but the Kardashian Christmas card is certainly not like any other Christmas card this holiday season.
