GQ has released its annual Men Of The Year issue, but the cover star is receiving mixed reactions. On Nov. 14, 2023, the men’s style magazine revealed the dual covers, which feature Kim Kardashian as one of the stars in the issue. In the cover photo, Kim is wearing a shirt and tie, covered by an oversized pinstripe suit. The mother of four was named Tycoon of the Year, due to the success of her beauty lines, perfume brands, and SKIMS collection – which now offers men’s clothing.

“I just wanted men to find out what all the hype is about,” Kim told GQ. The Hulu star went on to explain that she was always inspired by men’s fashion and would even play dress-up in her father’s closet as a child. “He always wanted to look cool,” Kim said of father, Robert Kardashian.

Some questioned why GQ would select a woman as their cover star, while also taking a jab at the entire male species. “Genuinely curious. Did she do some crazy s--t or is men not doing s—t,” the Twitter user jokingly asked.

However, the backlash could be misguided as Kim is not the first woman to appear on the cover of GQ’s annual Men of the Year issue.

Jennifer Aniston, Rihanna, and Rose McGowan have all men on the cover of GQ!

The reactions to Kim Kardashian’s GQ cover seems to be unwarranted as the reality star joins a long list of women who have received the same honor. In 2005, Jennifer Aniston was the first woman to land on the cover of the annual issue, although her title was changed to Woman of the Year.
