Although Kim has said that she has learned the value of privacy from Kanye this doesn’t seem to be much in evidence here from the pretty racy black and white photos appearing in the mag.
Even on the cover shot the pair appear to be simulating sex with both of them naked and Kim clearly looking like she is having a good time.
The pair clearly don’t need the money and with their first child together due this July you do wonder what their motivation was in taking on this photo shoot. One thing is for sure when the child grows up they are sure to be embarrassed by their parents’ photo album more than most kids.
The photos in the French mag are certainly a change from the normal paparazzi photos we see of the pair. All the photos are in black and white and are in an arty, fashion style. They have been shot for L’Officiel Hommes by the renowned UK photographer Nick Knight. As well as shooting for fashion mags such as Vogue Nick is well-known for his work on album covers for artists such as David Bowie, Boy George, Kylie Minogue, Lady Gaga, Seal and Björk.
Inside the mag there are many moody intimate photos of the couple including a shot of Kanye standing behind KIm while holding her face in his right hand, kissing her cheek and holding her left breast in his left hand. Another shot shows Kim covering her boyfriends eyes with her hands whilst she moves in to kiss him on the lips.
Whatever you think about the new black and white photos of the couple it is hard to reconcile them with Kim’s recent talk about wanting to keep their life more private.
