Kim Kardashian On Her Body: 'It's A Work In Progress'

There’s a reason Kim Kardashian has the confidence to be photographed in bikinis–and even mom jeans. Her secret? She actually likes to sweat. “It probably sounds weird, but for me, there’s nothing better than getting up and going right to the gym,” reveals Shape‘s cover girl in this month’s issue. The 29-year-old gets candid about her own body issues, including being the first girl in her peer group to develop curves.“All my friends were super skinny, and that just wasn’t my body type.” Luckily, Kim was able to draw inspiration from her mother, Kris Jenner. “I watched my mom, who was always comfortable with herself, and she helped me with my outlook: I have curves and that’s never going to change, so I’d better start embracing them or I’m going to have a miserable life,” says Kim, who admits, “It took me a while, but I finally caught on.” But just like the rest of us, Kim does have a few nagging issues. “I have cellulite, just like almost every other woman on the planet,” says the reality star, who recently designed a line of swimwear with her sisters Khloe and Kourtney. “And just because I feel secure with my body doesn’t mean I think cellulite is cute! It will always be an issue for me. So let’s just say it’s a work in progress!” For more from Kim, pick up the latest issue of Shape or visit –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley

Despite what any of us may think of her character, you can’t say the girl isn’t beautiful. She’s practically flawless! (yes even if it is air brushing, photoshop, plastic surgery and the million other things people use to discredit her of it!)

This cover is absolutely smoking hot. As I’ve said elsewhere, Maxim’s top 10 is justified, as is seeing her everywhere — diet drinks, E!, Svedka vodka. Justified and welcomed. Go KIM!

i think the girl is gorgeous. I love the fact that she isnt pencil thin…those models that are super skinny make me want to shove a cheesburger in their mouth. They just look like they are starving!!

I’m sorry but I find nothing special about this plastic woman at all. She used to be “okay” when she first hit the scene, but now she has had so much plastic surgery that she looks totally different, and not in a good way. Flawless? I don’t think so! There are many other naturally beautiful women out there that haven’t gotten their faces all ripped up with surgical procedures.
