Kim Kardashian regrets posing nude for Playboy. But that doesn’t mean she won’t pose nude again. And again. Today there are photos circulating from her nude cover shoot for W Magazine’s art issue. Are the gratuitous? Maybe. But they also prove how hard Kim is campaigning to position herself as the poster celebrity for the crusade against overly skinny women in magazines.
Everyone knows that celebrities get photoshopped. But increasingly, people are getting upset about the way that images of celebrities and models are presented to young girls. Even the Girl Scouts have taken a break from selling cookies to speak out against overly skinny models getting photoshopped.
While Kim Kardashian denies having had any plastic surgery, it seems obvious by now that she’s had a nose job. Are the rumors about her boob job and butt enhancements true too? That seems less clear. But regardless, the most famous Kardashian definitely presents a different female model from the norm when she poses in photos without her clothes on.
And she’s fully embraced that notion. When she posed without airbrushing for the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar, she told the magazine:
“I might have a little bit of cellulite. I might not be toned everywhere. I might struggle in this area or that. But accepting that just empowers me.”
In the NSFW photos for W, she’s covered only in silver paint. And the images present a stark contrast to the nude and semi-nude fashion models that normally grace such magazines.
Now, does it makes sense to have her on the cover of W’s “art issue’? That’s another story.
UPDATE: Help Crushable settle an office debate. Has Kim Kardashian had plastic surgery? And if so, how much?
