Kim Kardashian & Kanye West’s L’Officiel Hommes cover: trashy or sexy?

I’m sure some of you saw this yesterday, but I had to work up the energy to cover it. That sounded harsher than I meant – I have some kind of stomach flu and the slightest things are making me nauseous. So… consider me super-brave for being able to stomach Kimye’s L’Officiel Hommes cover. Here’s the thing – if it was another couple, would you be judging it so harshly? It depends on the couple, right? Like, if this was Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, I would be into it. But they would never do a cover like this, I don’t think.

Here’s something else I don’t understand – why does Kim keep giving interview after interview about how she’s private now and she’s learned how to have a private life now that she’s with Kanye… and then they pose for a magazine together where it basically looks like he just put it in? Bad branding, Kim.

Also bad branding? Kim is now a Mommy-blogger. For real. She has taken it upon herself to blog about maternity jeans on her Celebuzz page:

Hi guys! So I love sharing my favorite products and beauty and fashion tips with you all and I wanted to do my first mommy blog today to tell you about these new J Brand jeans I received. They are these super comfy maternity jeans with soft, stretchy side panels in the front and they are absolutely amazing! I feel like I’m back to my old self and I’m so happy! With this being my first pregnancy I’ve been finding it really difficult to find clothes that are comfortable and fit me well, but these are great. Are there any other moms to be out there who have tried these? I’d love to hear you pregnancy tips too!! :-) Xo

[From Kim’s Celebuzz page]

“These new J Brand jeans I received…” Meaning J Brand sent her the jeans and she liked them so this is tit-for-tat exposure. I wonder if J Brand sent her the jeans after this weekend’s terrible peplum pants incident?

    her face doesn’t look bad in that cover.

  2. Yellowshaba says:

    I abhor kim with a passion so i do not feel bad saying she looks horrible pregnant. I also feel bad for this child, tragic

  3. Jenn says:

    pure trash, trailer park trash look at her and mutter trash under their breath.

  4. Ms Kay says:

    Sorry but it looks so try hard to look sensual that it is not sexy at all, not natural no chemistry even with Kanye back nor nothing.

  5. A says:

    Well, it’s a better cover than that Cosmo cover where it looks like she’s wearing a diaper.

  6. Hannah says:

    “I’ve been finding it really difficult to find clothes that are comfortable and fit me well.”
    You don’t say, Kim!

  7. YummyMummy says:

    I wonder what size jeans they send her? Do they sew a size xs label into larges???

  8. Skipper says:

    Why is it so much fun watching her get so fat? I hate myself for loving it so much but I can’t help it.

  9. andrea says:

    Well, that’s Kim for you. She’s in her element when she’s f*cking for fame.

  10. tabby says:

    How do we know thats kanye, that could be Reggie bush or ray j. Lol! Its just gross. So tired of Kim and kanye.

  11. LadyMTL says:

    If I wanted to see Kim get it on (and I so don’t) I’d watch her sex tape. This cover is tacky…I doubt very much that any A-list type like Brad and Angelina would do this, because they don’t need to. They’re famous because they can act / sing / dance / etc and not because they’re fame-whores.

  12. Syko says:

    Doesn’t even need to be discussed. If “Kardashian” is mentioned, it’s trashy.

  13. lady X says:

    And someone had nerve to say “I do not understand why she gets so much hate”
    So I guess posing semi nude and appearing to be engaging in a sexual act while pregnant with your boyfriend while yet still married is not going to garner conversation?
    Is this suppose to be the new private Kim? If so … I shutter to think about what the non-private Kim looks like …
    The only way she stays relevant is marketing herself in a sexual and pornographic matter … it is how she was introduced to us and how she is gonna have to be to stay on top .. That is a fact

    She is a pitiful disgrace … there is nothing …powerful … independent .. smart … business savvy about this picture or any of her actions for that matter

  14. Katie says:

    I really don’t understand who likes her. Who is listening to her and is actually interested in what she says? Everyone has an opinion on her, but who’s an actual fan?

    I remember reading the comments at People magazine after her pregnancy was announced and there were a TON and they all ranged from “She is a skank” to “We shouldn’t blame a baby for its parents” with a lot of “I feel bad for Khloe.” But NO ONE was happy for this chick. Who likes her? Who are the magazines selling to? The haters?

    • MyLeNe - Montreal says:

      Take one minute and go to see the fan on her site what they comment !! it’s so 5 of coscient Like : “OHHHHH Kimmmmmmmmmmm i Love uuuuuuuuuuuuu so much !!! Yourrrrrrrrrrr so hottttttttttttttttt … your are so amazing !!” (sad but true)

      • Katie says:

        Oh jeez. That’s just frightening.

      • Arabprincess says:

        I have seen her blog and the comments, and it’s usually not more than 10-20 comments and it’s usually immigrant ethnic girls I mean no disrespect– I am also an immigrant lol. But, it’s usually those type of girls that really don’t understand what she is about in terms of her dirty nasty ways of attaining fame and her deceiving ways. They just see the tacky trendy outfits and the caked on “glam” makeup and those hideous look extensions and the cars etc, that they admire to have. These very simple minded young girls that she always targets her disgusting crap to. So sad!

  15. melmel says:

    what a lucky child. First she will get to see her married mama naked with daddy on a magazine cover but then she can watch her mommy have sex with ray j or whoever he is.

  16. Velouria says:

    I don’t believe J Brand makes her size for a second. (maternity or regular) They maybe made her a custom pair but not right off the rack. SHe’s way too…um FAT.

  17. MooHoo says:

    it doesn’t matter who it is – this pic is offensive. I don’t want to see a couple having it off on a magazine cover. It is too intimate. The fact that it is these two, they are cashing in on their own intimacy. Also, why do we see Kim’s semi-ecstatic face and not Kanye’s. By showing her face, and Kanye’s big broad back, the woman looks weak and not in control of the situation – discuss.

  18. Agnes says:

    how trashy. somehow i expected more of kanye (not of kim, clearly). is nothing intimate and private anymore?

  19. Jess V says:

    I just don’t like Kayne West, not his music, not his face, and not his arrogance. Couldn’t care less about Kim, this is her job, selling herself, she is doing it well.

  20. the original bellaluna says:

    It’s tacky, trashy; any “t” word that applies. But they’re both soul-less self-promoting fame-whores, so I don’t know why we would be shocked. (Not that she’s not trying; there’s just SO little left for her to do to shock ANYONE. Try gargling peanut butter next, Lardassian.)

    ETA: It’s also gross, and def something I didn’t need to see, especially this early in the a.m.

  21. ladybert62 says:

    Trashy – even if this was another couple, it would still be trashy.

  22. Joy says:

    Am I the only one who thinks instead of pregnant she looks more like she is just finally not wearing 3 pairs of Spanx? I think that white dress pic is probably just regular old Kim. But by the 9 month mark Tracy Anderson’s head will explode if she’s still her trainer.

  23. janie says:

    Trashy, only thing she knows how to do.She has no discernable skills. There is an innocent baby involved in this, a girl no less. She will be mortified over this behavior. Unbelievable!

  24. anonymous fan says:

    This is gross.And I can’t think of any celebrity couple that would look good in this pose.And why are they trying so hard to promote their relationship?We get it you’re together!Who the hell else wants the either of you anyway.You 2 can have each other.Oh how proud their child is going to be one day at all of this.

  25. Aileen says:

    I wonder if this will be a Madonna like situation where everyone trashed her during her prime. Fast forward twenty years and everyone loves her for being a visionary or something. Just wondering.

    And yes, the cover is too much.

  26. gistine says:

    I bet she has a stripper pole on her baby registry. Gotta start em’ out early!

    Garbage can!

  27. palermo says:

    I still firmly believe those two never had sex and that he is gay. He wanted a child, she wanted more publicity. I read somewhere she had IVF so they never had to touch genitals together. People have hate for her because she is a vapid vain idiot. Her only “talent” was to release a really bad porn movie, she doesn’t even show any talent for screwing, laid there like a dead trout.

  28. bagladey says:

    Someone on another blog pointed out that a “Moonbump” can be seen under the white dress. Probably padded up her stomach to make her rear-end not appear so LARGE.

  29. Redd says:

    it’s trashy, they’re nasty and it’s trashy. period.

  30. Jayna says:

    Kanye has wanted her for years, and I believe his ex that Kanye and Kim hooked up here and there while Kim was with Reggie. Kim could have had Kanye at any time, but she chose anyone and everyone except him until she ran out of men. Now she’s trying to make him Mr. Right. She will tire of his controlling nature.

  31. Itsa says:

    Trashy, as usual. Only Kim would agree to do porn while pregnant.

  32. NeoCleo says:

    Agree that it’s not bad as long as you can’t see West’s face. I don’t get the attraction to him but I’m old so whatever.

  33. KellyinSeattle says:

    Trashy – glad it didn’t show Kayne’s face, though. The only way she gets fame is through famehoring through sex. And she needs a better bra.

  34. fabgrrl says:

    If I didn’t know who they were, and this was the cover of a romance novel, or movie, then I would think it was pretty hot.

    But, ug, no! Not these two. Not on a magazine cover. Ick!

  35. Rina says:

    Kim is beautiful. I like the cover, they look hot.

  36. shewolf says:

    I wouldnt like a cover with me on it looking like I am getting banged against the wall.

  37. Hipocricy says:

    This would be fine for ‘Playboy’ magazine but otherwise, that uh ah moaning pose is just pure trash.

  38. pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    Ugh. Nothing positive about these two or this photo.

  39. Zimmer says:

    I like it if I ignore the identity of the two. I like that it causes controversy.

  40. Zimmer says:

    I like it if I ignore the identity of the two. I love
    that it causes controversy.

  41. kitkerenina says:

    Reminds me of the Janet hands/breasts photo, only that was awesome!

    Nine years worth of technology later… suckiest, photoshopped, wannabe sexy, gag inducing, piece of s*** cover ever.

  42. MST says:

    Seriously, don’t these people THINK? That innocent child of theirs is going to mortified by that cover someday.

  43. I thought Kim wanted to be taken seriously by trying to make the public forget that she made a sex video. Now we are reminded of how she got famous in the first place! Counterintuitive thinking much? I guess we should be happy there are no golden showers being filmed again.

  44. dorothy says:

    What happened to the wanting privacy? That lasted all of 23 seconds.

  45. Melanie says:

    Trashy. I didn’t even have to look at the photos to know if she was in them, she looked trashy.

  46. Snowpea says:

    Am I the only one who doesn’t buy that these two are actually a couple? I just DO NOT SEE any chemistry. At. All.

    I’m A grade at spotting showmances. I’ll tell ya who I think is Real and who is Fake.

    •Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz – those two SIZZLE
    •Brangelina – they don’t sizzle but they have a lovely companion/respect feel to their relationship
    •Michelle and Barack – they are in LOOOOOOOVE so crazy with each other. God I love those two.

    •Beyonce and Jay Z – no chemistry. At all. I think he probably sleeps around with her blessing. I think B is asexual.
    •These two twits.
    •Travolta and Preston – obviously.

    Funnily enough, just to hijack a thread, I think that Brandi and Eddie have an off the richter chemistry with each other. I reckon they’d both like one last white hot night together (as much as neither of them would admit to it)

    Just my two cents ;)

  47. dcypher1 says:

    Kim is the biggest hypocrite and always contradicts whatever she says for $$$$. Private my ass.

  48. Meg says:

    she needs to learn to dress to flatter her figure-i think she’s going to look ‘fat’ while pregnant. she looked bad in that white dress. if you notice before she was pregnant, she’d wear loose fitting clothing but then look great in a bikini. i think she has the body type that doesn’t look good in jeans-like scarlett johansson can look fumpy at times in paparazzi photos. if you odn’t know how to dress for your body you’ll look bad. and normally Scarlett and kim look great and feminine and curvy.

  49. dory says:

    I need to paste that picture of KK in peplumed jenas on my fridge so I can look at it everytime I feel like eating junk. This picture is horrid.

  50. Mar says:

    I don’t even understand what they were thinking with this ridiculous cover.

  51. Nance says:

    Well, this is more classy than the porno.

  52. J7 says:

    Once again, fking for fame. The usual story.

  53. Memphis says:

    I see Kim is getting back to her porn roots.

  54. Gelina says:

    It’s a beautiful cover! Very sexy!!!
