Kim Kardashian is making a lot of guys happy again, having shed all her clothes for the most recent edition of W Magazine. The voluptuous beauty decided to get naked all for the sake of art this time round. She can be seen in all her Armenian glory, with only a layer of silver paint between her and the camera, in the “Art Issue.” In fact, Kim Kardashian is W Magazine‘s cover story.
Not only do you get a fully frontal nude Kim Kardashian for the cover (strategically red-blocked for safe work viewing), you get an eight-page cover story, “The Art of Reality,” to go with it — with not-so-safe-for-work pictures. On the inside, the lovely brunette is displayed in silver in photographs taken by renowned art photographer Mark Seliger. Celebuzz has posted four of the pictures from the W photo shoot online.
So what is so artistic about Kim Kardashian (besides the aesthetic obvious)? Her reality. As W Magazine points out, Kim Kardashian — who cannot act, sing, or dance — has mastered the art of being herself. She has transformed that ability into a modeling, fashion, and reality show empire.
But it is the aesthetic obvious that has garnered Kim Kardashian much of her fame for being famous. Although many attribute her rise to fame simply on the the scandalousness of her sex tape and the exposure from her reality shows, Kim Kardashian’s image and brand have grown far beyond that of the mere reality show cast member. She has far outstripped all other reality show celebrities in marketability.
Her allure is her voluptuous figure and her exquisitely high-cheekboned face. Her pictures are some of the most sought-after images on the internet. And most of them are as near nude as being clothed can possibly be — in a bikini. Her bikini shots are ubiquitous on the Internet.
That is not to say one cannot find nude photos of Kim Kardashian. She’s done a few, including a famous Playboy photo shoot in 2007. She told Harper’s Bazaar, a magazine she bared all for, that doing the Playboy shoot had been uncomfortable for her. She later said she called Hugh Hefner and apologized, saying she didn’t mean it the way it was printed. (It still remains unclear if Playboy released the out-take photos of Kim Kardashian, pictures she said she thought would never go public, on their website in retaliation for her choice of words.)
Now she’s naked again in W Magazine.
Apparently the 29-yar-old isn’t as uncomfortable as she used to be…
