Kim Kardashian Covers the Guy Issue for 'Glamour'Courtesy Glamour

Just when you thought you couldn’t get enough of Kim Kardashian in 2010, she’s stepping into the new year with another magazine cover. But this isn’t just any issue; it’s Glamour‘s Guy Issue – and we couldn’t think of a better cover girl! The reality star-turned-entrepreneur sat down with Katie Couric in an interview that covered all bases—including her sex symbol status! “It’s definitely powerful,” Kim says of her legendary reputation. “I don’t find myself as sexy as everyone thinks. I’m a lot more insecure than people would assume, but with little stupid things. When I get dressed, I’m always so indecisive.” She may encounter occasional difficulty choosing the right outfit, but in the spread shot by Terry Tsiolis on her 30th birthday, Kim showed off her signature flirtatious style in a variety of soft, seductive looks, including a gorgeous flowing Marc Jacobs dress (above), a racy Dolce & Gabbana bustier and even some luxe Tom Ford pajamas. Her secret to feeling sexy? “You have to learn to like what you see in the mirror,” she tells Glamour. “There are definitely times when I don’t feel like myself, but you have to fake it until you make it.” Check out the rest of Kim’s Glamour spread online or on newsstands nationwide Jan. 11. –Hana Choi

I don’t think she’s sexy in the least. Her looks are superficial.

Kim isnt fake at all. her sister Kourtney is the one with the fake boobs.

I think Kim is beautiful made up or natural..she’s just gorgeous!

Kim’s ex-husband came out and said that she was addicted to plastic surgery when they were married so she’s gotten plenty of things worked on. She is a pretty girl still though.

Kim is fake all around. Everything she says in this article is bull. She doesn’t have “little insecurities” as she puts it, she has bigger ones such as hating the way she looks. She physically altered her boobs, face, got lipo, botox, you name it. She goes on to say that “you have to learn to like what you see in the mirror.” If she actually practiced what she preached, she wouldn’t have paid thousands to “make” herself look attractive. This woman is nothing but an insecure coward who has to lie to make herself feel good and important. I guess when you’ve been brought up in a family where one parent was too concerned with his job and a wife who was too concerned with her social life to lavish the attention she needed, she went elsewhere looking for it. Eloping with someone that later ended in divorce, then turning into a big time groupie, etc., it’s no wonder Kim has issues and it shows.

This is the same kind of thing you hear from the skinny girls when they say “oh I’m so fat & need to lose weight” when they definitely dont.
It’s a narcissists way to get a compliment. What’s supposed to happen now is for people to say “oh yes you are so sexy Kim.. how could you not see that?, etc, etc, etc”
Pretty sickening.

“Kourtney couldn’t have implants, she breastfed Mason.” Um…you can breastfeed with implants.

trose on

Cricket you certainly can breast feed when you have implants, get your facts straight chica before you make a statement like that.
