Snakes on a Famous Daughter

Kylie Jenner, Sofia Richie and a posse of pythons.

Kylie Jenner, 19, was born Aug. 10; Sofia Richie, 18, Aug. 24. Side by side, at their respective half-year turns, these two famous daughters have done wonders for the social-media impressions of pythons.

Jenner on Sunday teased her upcoming 2017 calendar shot by New York-based photographer Terry Richardson. Followed today by Richie’s unveiling of the cover of the December/January issue of Complex magazine.

A rep for Complex confirmed to FishbowlNY that the company used for the cover shoot was Reptile Rentals, based in Thousand Oaks, Calif. And that a total of 11 snakes were on set!

We’d be willing to bet owner-operator Jules Sylvester also worked with Richardson and Jenner on their project. Sylvester’s website is very well done. To check out some of his movie credits besides the de-facto Snakes on a Plane, click here.

Update (Dec. 7):
The December/January issue of Complex will be the magazine’s final print edition. From a report by Folio:

The announcement comes months after Hearst and Verizon acquired the Millennial-minded brand, in April, as part of a joint venture between the companies… While an unspecified number of staffers will be shifted to new roles, others have been let go, according to the spokeswoman, who said those laid off comprise “less than ten percent” of staff.
