This is quite honestly one of the funniest things I’ve seen all week. Remember how the Kardashian-Jenner clan went on an all-expenses-paid (by E!) vacation to Greece a few weeks ago? Kanye West couldn’t/wouldn’t come on the vacay, so he hired a private jet to pick Kim up and he brought her to France after a few days. The whole trip was filmed by E!’s cameras, of course, but Kim was not content to simply allow the reality show to air intimate footage from vacation months from now. No, Kim organized a photo shoot with Us Weekly, and the pregnant-bikini photos scored her the cover. Let’s be fair to Kim – I’m sure these images were airbrushed, but even then, she looks absolutely fine and normal as a pregnant woman. The problem is not her body. It’s how she dresses her body.
Looks like someone’s got her groove back! After suffering through months of fat-shaming and criticism over her ever-evolving pregnant body, Kim Kardashian decided not just to embrace her curves but also to show them off in a bikini on her recent vacation to Greece — and Us Weekly has the photos!
Proudly baring her seven-month bump in a series of trendy two-pieces, the 32-year-old reality star soaked up the sun on the island of Mykonos, where she and her famous family spent several days at the end of April. (Also along for the Grecian getaway: mom Kris Jenner; sisters Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall, and Kylie; Kourtney’s love Scott Disick; and their two kids, Mason and Penelope.)
Rocking a bikini is a big step for Kardashian, who has been bullied for her weight ever since announcing in December that she and boyfriend Kanye West would welcome their first child in July. “I struggle finding things that don’t make me look heavy,” she blogged earlier this year of the challenges she’s faced in dressing her new curves.
No longer. “She’s loving the seventh month,” a source tells Us of the pregnant designer. “And she thinks pregnancy is so cute.”
For many more photos of Kim and the rest of the Kardashians in Greece — plus exclusive details on the mom-to-be’s newfound body confidence, her relationship with West, and the couple’s post-pregnancy plans — pick up the new issue of Us Weekly, on stands Friday.
I have mixed feelings about Kim trying to make this whole “I’m being fat-shamed!” thing into some huge deal. On one side, the body-criticism of Kim has been off-side and gross in some quarters, and she has every right to fight back. On the other side… she invites the criticism, she loves the attention, and the criticism scored her an exclusive photo shoot with Us Weekly and this week’s COVER. Whatever. When I first saw this cover, my first thought was “Wow, she looks good. So why does she keep dressing so poorly?”
