In an oversaturated world of celebrities doing crazy things and pop culture figures trying to constantly top themselves, it seems impossible that someone like Kim Kardashian could continue to be as shocking as she is. And yet, somehow, shocking is what she's best at. Somehow we can't stop clicking her name. Case in point: this brilliant new Paper magazine cover.
The New York-based magazine's Winter issue features Kardashian on the cover in a floor-length black gown, shot by French photographer JeanPaul Goude to recreate his iconic shot of a model opening a bottle of champagne onto her own rear end—all situated above the words "Break the Internet: Kim Kardashian." And that's exactly what the two Paper covers intend to do—and yes, there are two.
The first cover, described above, is significantly less gratuitous than the second, which features Kardashian exposing her bare bum as she looks coyly over her shoulder. If anything is going to break the internet, after all, it's going to be Kim Kardashian's bum. The full issue comes out Thursday, and we all wait with bated breath to see the inside images.
Keep scrolling to see both covers, and head to Paper to read more about the shoot!
