Whoever first started the trend of nude editorials for pregnant celebrities would be giving themselves a pat on the back by now since this seems to be one of the most talked about magazine shoots these days. From Kelly Rowland to Ciara and even Nigerian Fashion guru Toyin Lawani have all fallen victim to this trend. I am still waiting for that day when a Ghanaian pregnant celebrity poses nude on the cover of any magazine (Ouuuu I can imagine the backlash) Anyway, while I grab a chair to sit and wait, lets catch excerpts of Kourtney Kadashian’s nude editorial with Dujor Magazine. When asked:
On her decision to take these pictures
“I had done a nude shoot when I was pregnant with Mason, really last minute just for myself, and I love it. The photo is hanging in the entry of my mom’s house. It actually used to be in her bedroom next to her bed but Bruce would always make a comment about having it in his room. But it was really beautiful. This time, we were shooting for our show, and everyone on our camera crew was like, “You are so comfortable just walking around naked and pregnant!” And Scott, who stopped by with Kim said the same thing to me, like “How are you fine just standing there like naked with all these people around?!”
On how people will react to it
“I don’t know. It’s what a woman’s body is made to do, so I hope it’s maybe seen as something that’s artistic. This was something that initially I did for myself just to capture the moment in my life, but these photos are beautiful and I’m happy to share them. And I like how raw they are. It’s my body: I’m not trying to impress anybody or be something that I’m not. But in general, I don’t really care that much about what people think. It doesn’t rule my world. I did this because I wanted to and it made me happy.”
Okay then, what are your thoughts. Do you love it or hate it?
