Kim Kardashian knows how to get attention.
As the Hollywood Life reports, the photoshoot was done by Steven Gomillion and was actually done when Kim Kardashian was three months pregnant, although there is no evidence of a baby bump. Steven Gomillion has proven to be quite talented at photographing fashionable stars including Rhianna and Jennifer Lopez.
Two of the pictures released show Kim Kardashian in skin-tight leather. One has her in a bright pink, plunging dress that hugs her body. The other shows Kim Kardashian in a leather bustier and garter belt, this time in black and white. Yet another picture has Kim Kardashian reclining on a lounge chair, covered in a large fur coat.
The new website and app launched by Kim Kardashian offers beauty tips, streaming video, style breakdowns, and behind-the-scene photographs, according to the Huffington Post. But all of this access comes at a price, that of $2.99/month after a seven-day free trial.
Kim is not the only Kardashian with a new paid app, as Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Kendall Jenner have also launched their own. Khloe’s app will focus on workout routines and tips while Kylie’s will focus on fashion and style tips. While the app content all costs money, the companion websites that each has launched will be a mix of free content and subscriber content. According to Variety, the app technology is being provided by Whalerock Industries. Kourtney Kardashian has yet to announce her own app and website, but it is assumed that she will be next.
Some of the free content on the Kim Kardashian website will include her pregnancy diary. But most other content, including beauty tutorials, all require the paid subscription. These tutorials include both Kim Kardashian and her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, and will be streamed live. There will also be a section on style where Kim will post pictures of her clothes and information on how to copy her look.
As well as personal style information, there will also be a lot of content about Kim Kardashian’s daughter North West. The Daily Mail reports that stories and pictures of North will feature prominently on the app. Kim is certainly a proud momma, recalling cute stories about the youngest Kardashian.
“North loves wearing oversized clothes. She wears this Peas & Queues sweatshirt around the house all of the time because it’s so comfy!”
This isn’t the first time that Kim Kardashian has used her Instagram account — with nearly 47 million followers — from promotional purposes. Recently, Kim was forced to correct a post for a morning sickness medicine that did not list all of the required side-effect information, the Inquisitrpreviously reported.
Kim Kardashian has also used the medium as a way to silence her critics. Last month, Kim bared it all in an attempt to show her detractors that she was indeed pregnant.
