W Wants Everyone to Remember Its Naked Kim Kardashian Cover

Stefano Tonchi, editor of W, was not a fan of Paper’s naked Kim Kardashian cover. Why? Because it made everyone forget about W’s naked Kim Kardashian cover, published in 2010.

Of course, that’s not what Tonchi said. He told The New York Post that W’s front page was superior to Paper’s because W “used” Kardashian, not the other way around.

“Everybody says, ‘Oh my God, look at the cover of Paper magazine with Kim Kardashian,’” Tonchi said. “I’m like, yeah, I think she is using them. We used her… It was Kim Kardashian being used by W, not Kim Kardashian using W. There’s a big difference.”

He doesn’t sound jealous at all!

Let’s just let Tonchi have this one. He came out on top in the Great Naked Kim Kardashian Magazine Cover Debate that only he was having.

Kourtney Kardashian Poses Nude for DuJour

Another day, another naked Kardashian. This time it’s Kourtney Kardashian getting naked for DuJour. Kourtney is the older sister of Kim Kardashian, who bared it all for Paper last month.

At this point we’re wondering if the Kardashian’s held a family meeting and declared everyone (of age!) has to pose nude for a magazine before the year is over. In fact, we were tipped this morning that the Kardashian’s cat has already nabbed Cat Fancy’s next cover, and it is quite lewd.

Of Course Paper Retouched its Kim Kardashian Cover

Surprising no one (hopefully) the editorial director of Paper has admitted that the infamous Kim Kardashian cover was retouched. Mickey Boardman told Us Weekly that while there was plenty of smoothing things out, Kardashian’s butt was the real deal:

Every cover of every magazine is airbrushed on some level. But what I will say, is that is her butt. It is not padded. It is not augmented. That is all really her. But, yes, there was retouching to clean things up and make things look amazing. That’s what retouching is. It’s not building an ass that isn’t there or taking 50 pounds off the waist.

Obviously we don’t believe that Kardashian’s waist is that thin, mainly because how could she walk around like that? It seems like she’d always be toppling over. Like a sad and weird — but rich! — doll.

Kim Kardashian Gets Naked for Paper

One easy way to get your magazine noticed is to have a celebrity with a giant and fantastic — career, pose completely naked on the cover. To the editors of Paper’s credit, that’s exactly what they did. They oiled up Kim Kardashian West, told her to get naked, and hoped for the best. It certainly got our attention.

This is actually the second Paper cover featuring Kardashian West. The other one is a recreation of Jean-Paul Goude’s “champagne incident,” with Kardashian West balancing a glass of champagne on her ass. Art is great.

Kanye West preferred this cover. He tweeted the image along with #ALLDAY. Consider the Paper mission accomplished.
