Kim Kardashian is the cover girl for the May issue of Cosmo UK. Kim is a regular on the international editions of Cosmo, for whatever reason. Maybe her extraordinary Kat-Face is better appreciated internationally. These shots are courtesy of The Mail – I found a lot of photos from Kim’s other appearances on other issues of Cosmo, but I think this one is a brand new photo shoot. I’m sorry if I’m wrong and this is an old one. I actually kind of like the shoot – Kim’s not a very good model, and her own personal style is pretty trashy and tacky, and her Kat-face is out of control… but in this shoot, there are a few shots where she looks genuinely pretty. I’m a fan of the above photo, where she’s wearing the white feathered bustier. Her face still looks jacked, but it’s one of Kim’s best “posed” photos.
The Mail has some excerpts from Kim’s interview too – she’s just talking on and on and on about body image and stuff. It’s kind of boring, but she talks to such excess about taking pride in her curves that I now think she’s got issues with them.
In this celebrity world of size zeros and obsessions with weight, diets and body image, there’s one celebrity that has broken the mold to stand out from the crowd. And Kim Kardashian said that she loves her curvaceous figure, couldn’t care less whether she has cellulite and always finds time to pig out on ice-cream. The reality TV star, 30, said she has never aspired to be a size zero and added that she ‘couldn’t care less’ if she was a size 4 or a size 14.
Speaking to the British Cosmopolitan, she said: ‘I have cellulite. So what! I’ve never claimed to be perfect. It’s crazy anyone should assume that just because you’re in the spotlight, you’re flawless. Sometimes I pig out and I still feel great, and think, “That was so worth it!” That’s how I feel a lot of the time. I think, “See this little dimple of cellulite here? It was so worth it for that cookies ’n’ cream ice cream!”’
‘If I was stuck on a diet my whole life, I would be really miserable. I love to eat. If you can’t enjoy your life then what’s the point? You can’t torture yourself. I love Rice Krispies Treats, ice cream and frozen yogurt. I never aspired to be a size zero. Although one time I tried on a dress with a size-8 label when I thought I was a size 4. It turned out it was a UK size 8, so actually it was my normal size. But it made me think, “Why do I even care?” I couldn’t care less if it said 14. It’s just a number. Your best measure is to look in the mirror. I always say you shouldn’t weigh yourself. I don’t even have a set of scales in my house.’
Kim has often been celebrated – and criticised – for her round, curvy and sexy derriere, which she said she absolutely loves.
She added: ‘I see ridiculous stories about my butt, like how it has been insured. I feel like saying, “Hey, everyone has a butt. It’s not that big a deal!” But I suppose it’s flattering. Personally, I’ve always loved the curvy look. Even when I was a little girl and all my friends would be like, “Oh, my god, your butt’s so big”. And I’d say, “I love it”.’
She also said she loved that she and her sisters Khloe, 26, and Kourtney, 31, are built completely differently to her and that’s what makes them all beautiful.
Kim said: ‘Khloé is super-tall, with great legs; Kourtney is tiny with a great stomach. We embrace the fact that no one is really alike. Our parents always made us feel like, “This is who we are, we’re all beautiful and this is exactly how we’re supposed to be”. We never had any pressure to look different and I think that’s why we’re so confident about it today.’
Although she admitted that Kourtney did make fun of the fact that she started to grow breasts at the age of 10.
She said: ‘Kourtney would always make fun of me for having bigger boobs than she did. When you’re young, it’s embarrassing. Your body is changing and it’s scary. Then when I was 15, I realised it was great. I’ve never wished for smaller boobs since.’
And despite looking very different from her two sisters, Kim said they are great friends and boost each other all the time with compliments.
She said: ‘Having a bunch of sisters is like built-in best friends. We pump each other up and compliment one another. I don’t agree with women judging other women when they don’t know them. It’s bad for the soul and your self-esteem. Nobody has the right to judge. Especially me! I don’t have a perfect body, so why would I be mean about someone else’s?’
The full interview appears in the May issue of Cosmopolitan, on sale 7th April.

Um, she fit into a size 4?!? No, Kim. I do not believe that. I think you’re lying, and because you lie about your size, I therefore think all of your happy-talk about your curves is null and void. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure that Kim’s waist is a “size 4”. But there is absolutely no way that her ass or her boobs would ever fit into anything resembling a size 4.
