Here in the R29 news department, we generally stay away from the Kardashians. There's only so many times you can report on crazy Kanye/Kim outfit #123,383...and frankly, while we're sure she's a lovely person, there are plenty of rising style stars — without reality shows — whom we're eager to write about.
But, for better or worse, the Kardashians are a part of our culture. And we couldn't help but notice that the meteoric arc of this singular American obsession is perfectly reflected in the increasingly sparkly, staged progression of the other first family's annual Christmas cards.
Let's begin. First, we have this lovely motorcycle-themed setup. A great way to tell your friends "May the angels watch over you this holiday season...Hell's Angels!" We wouldn't call this card particularly normal, and it's certainly higher budget than the average American family's outing to the Sears photo studio, but it's not that crazy, either. (Gawker)
