Your move, Kim. Pregnant Kourtney Kardashian took a page from her sister’s Internet-breaking, butt-baring Paper magazine spread and stripped down for DuJour, baring her pregnant belly — and more — in a provocative nude photo shoot with noted celeb shutterbug Brian Bowen Smith.
In the pictures, the 35-year-old mom of two — soon to be three — proudly shows off her famous curves in looks styled by Monica Rose. One shot features the Kourtney & Khloe Take the Hamptons star in a soaking wet, see-through white dress that clings to her naked body, revealing her blossoming baby bump and bare breasts.
Another photo shows the sultry brunette cradling her belly while draped in a satiny white robe. And in a third picture, she poses in nothing but a feathered bib.
“I had done a nude shoot when I was pregnant with Mason, really last minute just for myself, and I love it,” Kris Jenner‘s eldest daughter told DuJour of why she decided to pose naked. (Mason, 4, is Kardashian’s first child with longtime love Scott Disick; she also has a 2-year-old daughter, Penelope.) “This time, we were shooting for our show, and everyone on our camera crew was like, ‘You are so comfortable just walking around naked and pregnant!'”
Indeed, the E! star feels even more confident pregnant than not. Asked whether she’d pose nude under normal circumstances, she told the mag, “I would never say never, but I don’t think so, no. What appeals to me is celebrating the shape of my body being pregnant and capturing that time in my life…It’s a wonderful thing to be able to show my children these photographs one day and say, ‘This was you inside.'”
“To me, nudity is not something to be ashamed of,” she added. “I’m not embarrassed of my body. I’m at my best when I’m pregnant. It’s such an amazing feeling, the transformation that your body goes through. There’s something about that that’s so empowering and beautiful, and I just really embrace it.”
