Kim Kardashian's Photoshop-Free Nude Shoot

Following in the footsteps of Jessica Simpson‘s makeup-free Marie Claire cover, Kim Kardashian is baring her famous assets in an all-natural, unretouched photo spread for Harper’s Bazaar. Though her curves have become just as notorious as her dating life, Kim doesn’t see what all the commotion is about. “I don’t get why everyone is always going on about my butt,” says Kim. “I’m Armenian. It’s normal. My butt is probably not as big as you might think, because I have small legs and a small waist, which makes it appear bigger.” In fact, growing up, it wasn’t her notorious behind that caused Kim concern. “I was wearing a C cup by the time I was 11,” the star recalls. “I would go to bed and pray, ‘Please, Lord, don’t let my boobs grow any bigger.’ I hated what was happening.” Now, Kim hopes her confidence can empower other curvy ladies. “The message [of this shoot] is embrace your curves and who you are. I feel proud if young girls look up to me and say, ‘I’m curvy, and I’m proud of it now.'” The other star who bared all for the retouching-free shoot, shot by Amanda de Cadenet, is former model Joy Bryant.

WOW !!!! I love Kim, she’s just so free sprited about her photoshoots. I love it. You did a great job Kim, keep it up. You and Kourtney and Kolhe and of course Kris and the girls are just beautiful.

Go Kim- She has an awesome body, and it looks even more beautiful in this shot- she looks soft and inviting, and I’m a woman!

And she wonders why Reggie wants to take a time out! Please… she is pretty enough to not have to resort to having everyone sees everything she has… keep it moving Reggie…

Kuddos for the message but that photo is not “all natural” and “un re-touch”.

KIM needs to go away! Her mom needs to stop pimping her daughter out. PUT SOME CLOTHES ON and get a life. How many magazine covers about her losing 10lbs are there going to be?? We know you have a curvy body and that you are proud of it, but just go away already!

Head Diva In Charge on

She looks amazing! Good for her.

who does she think she is fooling? she is beautiful..but every one does not need to see every thing she has. and this is not a natural unretouched photo–it has been. and as far as her comment about having small legs and waist…has she looked in the mirror? her legs are NOT small. but this is OK! people need to understand that trying to be so small is not a good thing! she just needs to stop taking her clothes off and showing off all the time.

Me on

she was so finnicky about geting nude in Playboy ….I remember watching the shoot in her reality show… she’s laying around nude ….. what’s the difference? She is lovely and should never be ashamed to show it off….

adam on

you’re not Armenian, you crazy cow, you’re American with a father whose background is Armenian. We don’t want you or your strange fame whoring family.

Julie B on

Why in the world would she pray for smaller boobs and then go get implants the size of cantelopes.
