Another week, another nude celebrity photo shoot! This time the subject in question isÂ Keeping Up With the Kardashians‘ star, Kim Kardashian who posed completely naked for the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar in photos that will not be retouched. In the magazine, the reality TV star opens up about her body image, imperfections, and insecurities…
It seems shocking that someone likeÂ Keeping Up With the Kardashians‘ star, Kim Kardashian would ever have body issues. The brunette bombshell has posed for pinups in men’s magazines like Maxim and Playboy and is now appearing completely nude with no retouching in the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar. The curvy star is used to constant criticism but doesn’t fully understand everyone’s obsession with her derriere.Â ”I don’t get why everyone is always going on about my butt. I’m Armenian. It’s normal,” the 29-year-old reality star says about her body. “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.”
TheÂ Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has learned to love and appreciate her body, but that wasn’t always the case. As a young woman, her backside wasn’t the cause for her concern, but rather her chest.Â Â ”I was wearing a C cup by the time I was 11. I would go to bed and pray, ‘Please, Lord, don’t let my boobs grow any bigger,’” she says.
Part of why Kim Kardashian agreed to the no-retouching-allowed photo shoot for Harper’s Bazaar was to empower young women to love and accept their bodies, imperfections and all.Â ”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,” Kardashian says. “I feel proud if young girls look up to me and say, ‘I’m curvy, and I’m proud of it now.’”
