Kim Kardashian has well and truly ‘broken the internet’. Well, that seems to have been the aim of her latest photoshoot with Paper Magazine, as the online world has been reeling since Kim posted these shots from her latest spread along with the hashtag #BreakTheInternet.
In the cover shot, an oiled-up Kim is seen wearing just a pearl choker and elbow length gloves as she bares her world famous derriere to the camera, while another shows her recreating photographer Jean-Paul Goude’s well-known ‘Champagne Incident’ shot as she poses in a sparkly black dress with a champagne glass balancing on her bottom.
It’s all over our timelines with a complete mix of reviews; Kim herself waded in to the debate and tweeted ‘…they say I didn’t have a talent…try balancing a champagne glass on your ass LOL.’
There seems to be one fashion accessory that’s the most sought after – and it’s not a high-end handbag or a set of designer jewels. Everybody wants a butt.
We have to give credit where it’s due, Kimmy’s most famous trait has sparked a tidalwave of celebrities and fans alike searching for ways to enhance their ass-ets. With high street stores stocking bum-enhancing underwear and traditional brands such as Levi developing jeans like the Demi Curve, specifically designed to ‘honour your hourglass’, super skinny has made way for celebrating curves. Hoorah!
These latest shots of Kim-K seem to have gone to the absolute extreme – we’ve never seen anything quite like it. Dare we say it, it’s almost verging on unatural.
What do you think? Is Kym embracing what God gave her, or do we think there’s a little more Photoshop than perfect derrière in these pictures? Let us know what you think in the comments below…
