If you think Christmas can be a bit of a circus, the Kardashians seem to agree.
It wouldn't be the holidays in Hollywood without the anticipated unveiling of the Kardashian Christmas card, and this year's family photo is decidedly more high fashion than last year's more traditional white Christmas.
The glam, golden, glitzy photo features the Kardashian-Jenner clan draped in black and posing in a graffiti-strewn, artistically-trashed carnival-inspired room, littered with dollar signs, pop art and magazines, that looks as if it was taken in post-Mad Max Vegas.
Shot by famed photographer David LaChappelle, the photo seems to state that life as a member of the Kardashian family is a constant media circus.

It hasn't been an easy past several months for Khloé Kardashian Odom – and the reality star opened up about her rocky marriage to Lamar Odom on the season finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians on Sunday.
"As many times as I have protected Lamar or dodged a bullet for him, lately everything is getting more than what I can protect or control," Khloé, 29, said during a confessional after her husband's agent called looking for him. "I'm getting bombarded with questions, and I don't know what to say."
Reports first surfaced in August that the former Los Angeles Lakers star, 34, was using "hardcore recreational drugs" for two years and even spent time in rehab.

Is that you, Grandpa?
No, that's Scott Disick, 30, looking decades older, after disguising himself as an old man to attend the Kardashian family charity yard sale in Woodland Hills, Calif., on Sunday.
Wielding a walker while sporting a fedora, sunglasses, cardigan and a beard even ZZ Top would admire, the reality star and boyfriend of Kourtney Kardashian looked intent on having a day filled with fun and laughter following the recent death of his mother, Bonnie, 63.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner share the spotlight with their famous older siblings, but only they know what it's like to grow up in the media glare – and they admit it's not easy.
"They got to live their teen years in a very different way than we did," Kendall, 18, told PEOPLE on Saturday at a Glendale, Calif., appearance with Kylie to promote their PacSun clothing line. Kim Kardashian and her sisters, Kourtney and Khloé didn't become famous until they were in their 20s, she explains.
"They lived it normally and then once they were already grown up, they went through what we’re now going through."
"They even say to us: 'If I was in your position, I would not be able to handle it,' " Kendall added.

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick spent a romantic weekend in the Dominican Republic.
The couple escaped Los Angeles on Friday for a getaway to the newly opened Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa.
Upon arriving, the couple – who are parents to Mason, 3, and Penelope, 1 – "took a walk on the beach and then went swimming at the resort's swim-up bar," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "Kourtney wore a black one-piece bathing suit and mentioned in an interview that she was currently doing an ab contest with Khloé [Kardashian Odom] so they can get back in two-piece suits and wear crop tops to an upcoming Beyoncé concert."

Kim Kardashian's motto for her wedding to fiancé Kanye West is simple: leave it up to Kanye.
The newly engaged reality star flashed her 15-carat sparkler on the red carpet at her 33rd birthday party at Tao Las Vegas Friday night, but said that little-to-nothing has been discussed about the wedding or even how long of an engagement she and West will have.
"We honestly haven't had a moment to talk about it or even breathe, so we haven't really talked about it, but whatever he wants," she told PEOPLE, adding that the only sure thing is that stepdad Bruce Jenner will walk her down the aisle.
