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

Kim is beautifull no matter what !!! I agree she could use less make up and she still beautifull, also I think is hard for her be in hollywood and don’t try to do like everybody else. I mean try to loose weight and stuff …I love kim the way she really is …I mean with her natural body and all the things that she thinks doesn’t look nice. She is real…she can’t be perfect …but she can be just kim …a beautifull girl…with a good heart and with a reason to live. Maybe she need starts use her name and beauty to help people that are out there and need her help…Let’s go girl.

No Kim, not everyone thinks that you are sexy; you are gorgeous and very feminine but that is taken away by your serial dating lifestyle…- take time to yourself missy! it’s okay to be alone :-)

I love it when Hollywood people talk about how insecure they are..c’mon..knock it off. Kim is a pretty girl..she could do w/out the 80lbs of makeup though..I think she looks 1000 times better when she rocks a natural look, which we don’t see too often.

trose – I believe Cricket was commenting on a post by “dontkidyourself” – “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 was about to comment on that post before I read Cricket’s response – you can absolutely breastfeed with implants, “don’tkidyourself” and I don’t know why you would have thought that you couldn’t…

OMG!!!!! For the first time in my life I can AGREE with a Kadashian; Yes Kim, I concur, you are “NOT sexy at all” that cracked up to be. It’s ALL PLASTIC anybody can have what you have if they have the dough. U know what I mean!

cheryl on
