Kardashian, who was photographed by Mark Seliger for the November Art Issue, goes full frontal on W's cover, with three red banners concealing her naughty bits.
Inside, the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star slicks her ample assets with silver paint for a portfolio inspired by artist Jeff Koons's Silver Bunny and artists Gilbert & George's Singing Sculpture.
The 29-year-old reality star told Allure magazine in September that she regretted her 2007 Playboy shoot not because she was ashamed of her body, but because she wasn't "in the best shape of my life... I look back and say, 'Oh, my God, I was so heavy then.' If you look now, I'm so much skinnier; my face is so much slimmer; my whole stomach is defined."
Uh... yes, we see!
But curvy Kardashian tells W she's now comfortable in her skin, no matter what her size. "I used to think, I have to be this or that or skinny, and now, because of the show, everyone is embracing just me, which has given me such a confidence," she says. "Now, I'm like, Why did I ever give that feeling the time of day? I'm so mature now. I'm a grown-up version of myself."
Yes... yes, you are!
Indeed, the beauty and fashion entrepreneur says she can't even relate to the girl she was when she married music producer Damon Thomas at the age of 20.
"For my wedding, I wore black leather pants, a black leather top, and Prada wedges," she tells W of the 2000-2004 marriage. "No Flowers. And no family. It was so bizarre.
"I was a different person then -- as I said, I always wanted to be a housewife, and I wanted to have kids at a young age. I was insecure and dependent, really the opposite of who I am today."
