Highbrow Takes on Lowbrow: Kim Kardashian Nude for W Magazine’s Art Issue

12 Oct

Kim Kardashian is on everyone’s lips this month with her move to New York and subsequent projects in the works. The voluptuous reality star covers this month’s issue of W magazine — one of the most highly-acclaimed fashion magazines still in print — veiled only by Supreme-esque red bands. Inside, Kim K. bares all posing completely nude (save for the silver body paint) in a photospread shot by famed art photographer Mark Seliger.

Hmm. Don’t get me wrong — I’m all about artful (and crude) nudity, but this seems hypocritical and artificial to me. Hypocritical on the part of Kardashian, who regrets posing for Playboy, complains about judgements on her body, and guarding and rehabilitating her sex tape image of fame. Artificial on the part of W, whose covers are generally graced by moviestars, highbrow models, and even the First Lady.


The full eight-page cover story is out on newsstands this week. NSFW pics after the jump.
