Kim Kardashian is breaking the internet (again). Eight years after her iconic nude Paper magazine cover, the reality star is baring her booty again — this time for Interview.
Kardashian, 41, fronts the September 2022 “American Dream” issue in an all-denim outfit by Bottega Veneta, her jeans unzipped and pulled down low enough to show off her famous derrière — and her jockstrap.
“I loved it,” she told the mag of the unconventional underwear choice.
“The team was like, ‘No jockstrap.’ And I’m like, ‘Come on. This is what I do.’ I do best when I’m ignoring them and doing what I want. So, I’m glad we did it.”
Kardashian, who dyed her hair platinum blond for her Marilyn Monroe moment at the 2022 Met Gala in May, kept the look for her shoot — and even bleached her eyebrows to match.
“I do think blondes have more fun,” she told Interview Editor-in-Chief Mel Ottenberg. “I just feel different.”
Elsewhere in her appropriately Americana-themed photoshoot, the Skims founder models a red Norma Kamali bodysuit with a black spiked Gucci choker, a US flag-printed thong paired with a Saint Laurent black leather jacket and a classic white tank top with baggy jeans, both by Bottega Veneta.
During her interview, Kardashian discussed her headline-making style and stepping out of her comfort zone for now-iconic red carpet looks, like her completely covered-up Balenciaga ensemble for the 2021 Met Gala — an outfit dreamt up in part by her ex Kanye West, and one that the Skkn by Kim creator initially resisted.
“I trust myself in the sense of, I know what looks good, and I know what makes me feel really uncomfortable. But, every once in a while, someone will be like, ‘Trust me. This looks good,'” she said.
“Sometimes it does, and sometimes it doesn’t, and you just have to roll with it. It’s not that serious. I care a lot, but I also can’t let it consume me. Sometimes there’s bad angles, bad lighting. You can’t control it all.”
Cheers to taking a chance — and baring it all.
