Top 10 Sexiest Kim Kardashian West Nudes
Top 10 Sexiest Kim Kardashian Nude Photos
by Belladonna Del Rio and Damali Conceptuals
Damali and I were talking like two little high school girls half the night about Kim Kardashian West and the negative reactions she is receiving about this nude photograph she posted on the internet. The photograph in question is the “selfie” posted here on the left. Kim Kardashian West took this photo over a year ago in a Paris Hotel not too long after giving birth to she and Kanye West’s child. Personally, as a professional photographer and publisher I abhor naked selfies. They are not very flattering, the lighting is horrendous, and if you are busy holding up a camera phone to a mirror? How good could the composition possibly be? When I saw this photograph I thought “Wow! Not bad bitch! You just had a baby and your curves are beautiful and your eyes are bright and full of life..good for you! “. What didn’t surprise me was the swell in trending for Kim Kardashian because after all, after Kanye West’s twitter feud with his ex and now his wife is naked on the internet, you are supposed to cause a spike in views and trend. What did surprise me was all of the negative comments and negative energy. That’s what made me call up my future baby’s daddy Damali Conceptuals and ask him about his opinion on all of this controversy.

My views on this are rather complicated and I know that I have a definite prejudice towards the small mindedness of most Americans when it comes to sex and the human body. We overly
sexualize women to the point we create these unrealistic expectations of what a woman is supposed to do and behave like regardless of her individuality or freedoms as artists to express themselves any way they want. For full disclosure, I admit my hypocrisy when it comes to Kim Kardashian because while on one hand I fully support her decisions to pose nude even though she is a mother and a wife ( in fact, I think that it is even more critical that she does) but I did almost pee myself laughing at Bette Midler’s funny response to the image. Bette Midler said:
“Kim Kardashian tweeted a nude selfie today. If Kim wants us to see a part of her we’ve never seen,
she’s gonna have to swallow the camera.”
Come on! That was funny as hell! Bette Midler is a comedian and she simply told a funny joke. Yes it was at Kim’s expense but I honestly just took the whole thing as a hilarious joke from a hilarious woman. Kim Kardashian didn’t feel that way and I admit it is easy for me to sit back here and take Bette Midler’s response with the careless ease that I did. Overall, I had no problem with Better Midler’s sarcastic joke. I did take issue with Piers Morgan’s condescending disapproval and Chloe Morentz’s “slut shaming” which made me wonder why now? Why Kim? My belief is that this is much deeper than just some petty “hating” and “self-righteous” bullshit. I question if all of this is somehow politically related to the racial climate here in the states. Time will tell.
After hours and hours of debating the above mentioned celebrity and pop culture paradigms of our society, we eventually got to the point we knew it was going to come to. How much did Kim Kardashian West still turn us on, why she still turned us on, and which images of this reality TV icon turned us on the most. Believe it or not this was fairly easy because Kim Kardashian West despite what her detractors may say about her above, really hasn’t taken as many nude photographs as you may think she has. Kim Kardashian has taken a slew of sexy images and of course some grainy shit images from her sex tape have been passed around, but as far as actual nude photography? Kim Kardashian West has actually taken a lot less than almost every major model I can think of and yet she is far larger career wise.

The Top 10 Sexiest Kim Kardashian Nudes
#10. “Un-retouched” by Kim Kardashian for Harper’s Bazaar photographed by Amanda De Cadent.
Damali and I thought that this was probably the most important piece in this collection of Kim Kardashian’s top 10 sexiest nudes. The reason being that what we chose to be the number one sexiest nude image of Kim Kardashian by far was also one of her most controversial. The controversy around Photoshop and the backlash she received for that image being photo-shopped. This image becomes the most important because it proves that Kim Kardashian’s images maybe photo-shopped ( just like EVERY SINGLE MODEL, EVERY SINGLE DAY IN THE INDUSTRY IS) but she has the balls to pose nude with no touch-ups and still look like one of the world’s sexiest women.

#8. “Break the Internet” by Kim Kardashian. Photographed by Jean-Paul Goude for Paper Magazine
Here is my dilemma. On one hand I honestly hate this shot and this shoot. The problem is that none of this is Kim Kardashian’s fault. The original by Jean-Paul Goude was powerful and creative for the time period it was conceptualized and shot. Jean-Paul Goude pushed the boundaries of artistic creations and created one of my favorite photography books of all time. To remake the same image but swapping out the black model for Kim Kardashian was brilliant marketing but artistically a real bummer. I see this image like somebody drawing a mustache on the Mona Lisa. However, none of this is Kim Kardashian’s fault and to be honest I think she looks absolutely mesmerizing sexually speaking. Again her curves and her well oiled body with that silly grin is just too much for me not to recognize as being one of her sexiest nude images ever.

#4. “Liberated” by Kim Kardashian West for Kim Kardashian West Instagram and Twitter
This gorgeous little gem just landed in my twitter feed this morning! I recognize this photograph from a photograph that Kanye West posted a long time ago about with his captioning about how lucky he was to have her. The ones that Kanye posted were un-edited but these edited images are soft, intense, and sensual. Very beautiful artwork.

#2. Kim Kardashian for Playboy Magazine
Whenever I do think about Kim Kardashian West and nude photography, I always come back to this particular photograph. I feel as though Stephen Ways truly captured the “iconic” energy of Kim Kardashian West in this shoot. It is Stephen’s usual perfect glamour lighting, perfect re-touching where the skin is super soft yet maintains it’s texture and the composition is flawless. While this shot is second sexiest nude image of Kim Kardashian West’s Top 10 Sexiest nudes, it is in my professional opinion the best shot of Kim Kardashian West.
#1. “The Desert” by Kim Kardashian West. Shot by Kesler Tran
This shot is by far Kim Kardashian West’s sexiest nude photograph of all time. Damali agrees with me that this was a real “no-brainer”. The natural light, the posing, the composition, everything about this image is sheer sexuality. The use of just enough body paint to tease and tantalize was another huge plus in both of our books. This shoot was heavily criticized for its liberal use of Photoshopping but we both believe that is absolutely silly as shit! The photographer is an artist and that artist can interpret their concepts of beauty any damn way they want. They were attempting to create sensual and sexually provocative artistic expressions, they were NOT attempting to make images to help make over-weight people feel better about themselves. People have got to start allowing artists to express themselves the way they want just like you and me can express ourselves any way we want.
