Give that editor a raise! 

Being the queen of glowing selfies and buck-naked Internet-breaking photo shoots makes Kim Kardashian the only legitimate choice to front Elle UK's "Confidence Issue." On one cover (yes, there are three), shot by Jean-Baptiste Mondino, the reality star-turned-mogul, 34, chows down on a cupcake wearing satin boy shorts, displaying a glimpse of her abs in a striped crop top. 


According to the magazine, the poster girl for self-esteem makes $3,000 an hour, earns 20 new social media followers a minute, and she has "through her unerring self-belief, redefined our perception of body beautiful."

Another shot features North West's mom posing in a white shirt dress with a bold waist belt. The British fashion glossy also notes, "She had to work hard to achieve self-esteem, and the resilience to face her critics," and she'll be discussing how she did it, her husband Kanye West, and more in the January 2015 issue.  

A final shot features the globetrotter channeling her inner biker babe in a leather moto jacket, a white bodysuit, and a tight black pencil skirt.

Kardashian’s latest cover couldn’t have been more timely or appropriate, after she virtually shut the Internet down with a full-frontal nude spread for Paper magazine. “[I have] an even better body after having the baby than I did before,” Kardashian said on Australia’s 2DAY FM shortly after the steamy shoot went public. “I’m very confident about [my body]. It was just a little token before I have to go through [pregnancy] again.”
