No pants, no problem!!
Completing the trifecta, the 34-year-old poses for the mag in nothing but a chic white tunic and black underwear.
She's still got the same neutral-toned makeup, but we love the tousled waves on her!
Though one thing we can't help but notice for the mag's Confidence Issue is all the Photoshop work!
Kimmy's thighs have clearly been airbrushed, but we can't figure out why! So unnecessary!
And it seems to go against the theme of the whole issue, don't you think???

This wouldn't be so shocking if they hadn't gone overboard with the Photoshop in the first place!
Not only have the color images been changed to black and white, but Her Madgesty's skin has been completely smoothed out of, well, EVERYTHING — wrinkles, veins, pores, peach fuzz.
Photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott even lightened the whites of her eyes and slimmed down her jawline!
We know some retouching and airbrushing is inevitable in every shoot, but do they have to go to such extremes??? There's nothing wrong with looking like the 55-year-old woman that Madonna proudly is!
And we know from paparazzi shots that she looks DAMN GOOD without airbrushing!
Check out more unretouched outtakes in the gallery (above)!

Yup, there was actually a REASON behind this titillating display of ta-tas!
Turns out, the British beauty was actually trying to make a potent point about photoshop!
She recently revealed:
Kendall Jenner Gets Fat-Shamed By A Magazine & Ireland Baldwin Comes To Her Defense! Get The Deets HERE!
Kendall Jenner can definitely count on Ireland Baldwin to always have her back! Seriously, what are best friends for if not for defending you??
And that's exactly what the model did after not only seeing Kendall with photoshopped thighs on the cover of Australian magazine, FAMOUS, but being fat-shamed for it.
Ireland went OFF on Twitter Friday, and among her rant, she wrote:
Gwyneth Paltrow Receives Some Photoshop Treatment To Channel Madonna, Audrey Hepburn, & More Icons For Max Factor!
Gwyneth Paltrow can Vogue like the best of them!
Especially when she’s channeling pop queen Madonna for her Max Factor Modern Icon campaign!
Though the Photoshop could have been a little less overdone here!
As for the rest of the campaign shots, Gwyneth portrays Brigitte Bardot and Audrey Hepburn perfectly, while we still wait on the release of her Marilyn Monroe-inspired ad!
Do U think they’re saving the best for last???
