DuJour magazine was lucky enough to snag Kim Kardashian for her first post-pregnancy announcement photo shoot!
Though the bump wasn't yet visible when the photos were taken, this spread is still the first to feature professional shots of the little Kimbryo!
These pics should be framed and hung all over the place!
Lensed by Bruce Weber, the shots feature Kim frolicking in the pool in a Karla Colletto bra, banging on bongos in a print Cia Maritima skirt, playing with bead necklaces in a Donna Karan plunge dress, and lounging about swaddled in fluffy Hermes beach towels.
Like Nicola Formichetti, the stylist for this particular shoot also had a difficult time procuring designer goodies for Kimmy.
Co-editor Keith Pollack explained:
"I think there’s some hesitation to work with Kim just because she doesn’t necessarily fit with most luxury brands’ visions. Luckily with Bruce, we didn’t try to create a fashion shoot. Formichetti was really trying to position her as a fashion force but we went the opposite way. It was about showing her in more a natural way. We went really minimal with makeup. There are very few fashion credits. In one shot she’s wearing towels. And despite the hesitation from these brands–she’s still wearing Gucci and Chanel and Lanvin even if they’re not lending it to her. She can buy them. So we thought, “Let’s not make this a fashion story."
If the lack of designer support bothered the Kim, though, it certainly didn't come up during the interview.
Instead, the 32-year-old talks candidly about her personal style and dressing for her body type, telling the mag:
"I think because I have big boobs it could make me look heavier if I don’t, like, show off my waist or something, so I just have kind of learned to dress one way only. Khloé can wear flowy, pretty things because she’s really tall. Kourtney is, like, really little. I’m just kind of in between, so it doesn’t really work."
And when her manicurist steps out for a minute, Kim takes on the duties herself, saying:
"I used to have to do this myself all the time, manicures and whatnot. I actually like it. It’s sort of like meditation."
Forced to do her own nails and she actually enjoys it?! We're impressed!
