Kim Kardashian Covers the Guy Issue for 'Glamour'Courtesy Glamour

Just when you thought you couldn’t get enough of Kim Kardashian in 2010, she’s stepping into the new year with another magazine cover. But this isn’t just any issue; it’s Glamour‘s Guy Issue – and we couldn’t think of a better cover girl! The reality star-turned-entrepreneur sat down with Katie Couric in an interview that covered all bases—including her sex symbol status! “It’s definitely powerful,” Kim says of her legendary reputation. “I don’t find myself as sexy as everyone thinks. I’m a lot more insecure than people would assume, but with little stupid things. When I get dressed, I’m always so indecisive.” She may encounter occasional difficulty choosing the right outfit, but in the spread shot by Terry Tsiolis on her 30th birthday, Kim showed off her signature flirtatious style in a variety of soft, seductive looks, including a gorgeous flowing Marc Jacobs dress (above), a racy Dolce & Gabbana bustier and even some luxe Tom Ford pajamas. Her secret to feeling sexy? “You have to learn to like what you see in the mirror,” she tells Glamour. “There are definitely times when I don’t feel like myself, but you have to fake it until you make it.” Check out the rest of Kim’s Glamour spread online or on newsstands nationwide Jan. 11. –Hana Choi

I’m definitely NOT a Kim lover, but I’ll have to side with her on the plastic surgery deal. Her boobs and ass are natural. She’s had botox, so what? Botox doesn’t last forever and isn’t something I would consider surgery. And for her not being sexy, she’s right. She has all the looks, but you really can tell that inside she’s not sexy. She’s way too pent up and needs to relax in order to be really sexy. If she had the right attitude she could really take off with her career as a sex symbol. She’s not the first and nobody ever gets on playboy girl’s or any other sex symbol for being untalented. That is her talent, looking good.

…sexy is something you exude…she’s got to be one of the most insecure people out there actually…nobody chases relevance and cameras that much if life is so awesome by itself…and sucks to have men want to pee on you, pass you along but not marry you or commit to anything serious…boo hoo, lmfao

Seems to me like she’s fishing for compliments.

OMG…you guys are so funny. Ever hear of PhotoShop? She’s gorgeous with or without makeup, and from what I’ve seen, she doesn’t wear that much makeup unless she’s doing a photo shot. The entire family has good genes.

Leah, I hate to break it to you, but Kourtney has implants too!! I think that all 3 of them are beautiful. They each have a different look to them!

The whole family makes me sick. They need to go away – far far away.

I think Kim is much hotter without all her heavy make up. especially all that eye make up. she should fire her make up artist.

Kim is definitely beautiful, all the Kardashian girls are. And I agree the less is more factor stands true for Kim, and all of them really. From what I’ve heard NONE of the Kardashian girls have implants, they are just “blessed”. Kourtney couldn’t have implants, she breastfed Mason. And if you ever look at Kim, she does fall naturally, silicon breast would be perky, ALWAYS. even in the Tom Ford pic you can see she not. It’s called a push up bra….

I don’t think she is sexy at all, so I can finally agree 100% with Kim when she says, “I am not as sexy as everyone thinks.”

Honestly I think these Kardashian “ladies” are super overrated! Famous for absolutely NOTHING, conceited and spoiled! As well fake everything and an enormous wardrobe!! Soooo tired of seeing their faces, NOT all that attractive ones, all over the place!!! Really!! Would love to hear about people that are doing good for others, not just themselves!!!
