Kim Kardashian made headlines today when she released photos of herself in high Egyptian regalia, posing as Cleopatra or perhaps the goddess Isis, including pictures of her lounging with the cat goddess Bast. The photographs were taken for, and printed in, Harper’s Bazaar magazine. Perhaps Kardashian is demonstrating a past life—or simply that some cultural archetypes die hard, and she is one of the people current portraying this particular archetype?
The Sun reports:

The buxom brunette showed off her slim but curvaceous figure in a tight-fitting leopard-print dress with a photoshoot for the US magazine Harper’s Bazaar. (Click through to see images.)
What do you think—what is Kardashian telling the world with her new Egyptian photo shoot—especially considering the current turmoil in Egypt?
