Kourtney Kardashian appears to have inadvertently channeled a James Bond classic for her latest photoshoot.
She’s the new face of skincare and cosmetics range Manuka Doctor, and to mark the occasion she’s been smothered in gold paint dust a la Shirley Eaton in Goldfinger.
The same fate won’t befall the eldest Kardashian, though. She’s actually covered in purified bee venom and manuka honey – apparently ideal for acne, dryness and ageing skin.
“I have been using the Manuka Doctor honey line for many years… I couldn’t have wished for a better partnership,” Kardashian said, while presumably beckoning Sean Connery into her web of sin.
“I am an advocate of products that use natural ingredients. I am incredibly excited to have this opportunity to work with a brand I believe in.”
Manuka spokeswoman Nicola MacFarlane revealed that Kardashian will be supporting their products for the next two years – which, hopefully, will result in further fuel for our tenuous Goldfinger-style puns.
“When we heard that Kourtney was a fan of our products and a believer in our brand philosophy and approach, we knew that she was the ideal choice for our global ambassador,” MacFarlane said. “Her track record of believing in natural products that are backed by science, along with her position as a pop culture icon and committed mum, makes her incredibly relatable to our consumers worldwide.”
For those of you who’ve somehow managed to miss Goldfinger, this was the third James Bond outing and cited by some as the definitive 007 outing.
Sean Connery’s bid to thwart the titular crime boss kicks off with him seducing his girlfriend Jill Masterson (Shirley Eaton). As revenge, Goldfinger covers her entire body in gold paint, causing death by asphyxiation.
Not content with instigating that, Bond then encounters Jill’s sister Tilly and is responsible for her death at the hands of Goldfinger’s goons. Solid proof that James Bond is an absolute shit and will not be anywhere near the Masterson family’s Christmas card list.
