Kim Kardashian, Joy Bryant bare all for Harper’s Bazaar

Nothing says, “Welcome back from vacation” quite like nudie pix of Kim Kardashian.

That’s what we discovered in the ole Buzz inbox this morning.

Kim Kardashian and Joy Bryant bare all for photographer Amanda de Cadenet in the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar, showing that natural bodies are beautiful,” the fashion mag says of its fashion-free spread. “In a stunning spread that empowers women to celebrate their bodies, the stars forgo retouching, embrace their curves, accept their insecurities and reveal their most intimate thoughts.”

And just what are those intimate thoughts? Glad you asked.

“I don’t get why everyone is always going on about my butt,” Kardashian tells Harper’s Bazaar. “I’m Armenian. It’s normal. 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.”

Wait, there’s more.

“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.’ I hated what was happening.”

And her take on the magazine’s idea of shooting her in the buff: “I think the message is embrace your curves and who you are. I feel proud if young girls look up to me and say, ‘I’m curvy, and I’m proud of it now.’”

Bryant’s comments echoed the idea of empowerment.

“Women are the harshest critics of other women,” she tells Harper’s Bazaar. “There needs to be a greater acceptance individually and collectively or nothing’s ever going to change. You’ll never be thin enough, blonde enough, black enough. So enough is enough.”

Since when does being half Armenian, half German mean you’re supposed to have a big behind? If that was the case, both Khloe and Kourtney would both have big behinds as well. She has a plastic surgeon to thank for her behind being the way it is, not the Armenian side of her family. Otherwise, cute pics. But just cop to the fact that you bought your butt already! lol.

“the stars forgo retouching”…..are these women not wearing make-up anymore? Cut the pretentious crap. Kardashian wears a truckload of make-up. Like most stars (have you seen Oprah, Morgan Fairchild, Sharon Stone, Katie Holmes, etc…..without makeup…..ugh!) she could not even go out in public without it. I would write more, but I need to take some time out to “go celebrate my body”….whatever the heck that means.

Retouching means they did not have to airbrush her digitally after the shoot. It means the body you see in the picture is the body that was shot, without all the extra photoshopping. It has nothing to do with her make up. And for the record, your rant seems like that of a “hater”. Use your time to better your own life or bring positivity to others, not to trash talk a celebrity. Good for her for being comfortable with her body! I doubt she was looking for such negativity…..sad!

You are right on point. First off, ANYONE who believes these photos are not retouched are stupid. You can go right to any of the urban “gossip” sights and catch a glimpse of KKay’s cellulite packed thighs and purchased booty every day of the week. I am a photographer, and the lines of the bodies in the photographs scream RETOUCH. Read my lips…NO PHOTO GOES TO PRODUCTION ON ANY MAG OF THAT STATURE WITHOUT PHOTOSHOPPING/RETOUCHING!

It’s all hype. Yeah… ARMENIANS are known for having round shapely booties.. (LOL).

Kim Kardashian has already been butt naked for AMERICA on two occasions, once in the porn home movie and again in Playboy. This is the third time she’s naked for America. The nimbot has no dignity, no shame. She’ll do anything for publicity and for a buck. I’m so glad Reggie Bush broke up with her. Who would make that woman the mother of his children? Some biddlebop would. Somebody married Kendra, right?
