Kim Kardashian West has taken it all off yet again!

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has once again stripped down, posing nearly nude in honor of the 20th anniversary of the magazine Richardson. The cover, shot by Steven Klein, was inspired by the 1997 anime psychological thriller Perfect Blue, reports Entertainment Tonight.

The thriller follows Mina, a rising pop star and actress whose team is murdered one by one, resulting in stalking and paranoia.

Kardashian posed for the smoldering cover clad in a pair of small white underwear, showing off toned abs and muscular thighs.

The magazine’s issue number covers her breasts.

There are several other shots of the reality star that are almost nearly nude as well. One features the wife of Kanye West naked on her hands and knees in a bathtub, per Entertainment Tonight.

Kardashian was interviewed by Bret Easton Ellis, author of American Psycho, The Rules of Attraction and Less Than Zero, for the accompanying article.

TooFab reported that Easton Ellis asked the reality star during the telling interview, “We wanted to know if you thought that [Paris Hilton’s sex tape] disillusioned her somehow if the tape marked her withdrawal from public life, whereas the release of your tape made you very well known. At what point did you say, ‘I’m just going to own this. It happened. And it is what it is.”

“Everyone deals with things differently, and I seem to deal with things — whether the sex tape, the robbery, even the death of my dad, who was the most important person in my life — I push to just overcome it,” she continued, as noted by TooFab. “I just don’t have a victim mentality. That’s never been my personality. I’ve always been like, the victor, I can get past this, and this will not define me.”

This the second nearly nude photo shoot Kardashian shared in just one week. She recently posted some new ads for her makeup line, KKW Beauty where the mother of three is topless in bed alongside a nude male model. In another photo, she is wearing a blue bodysuit along the same male model.

Since the birth of son Saint, Kardashian has worked hard on her body and she is the best shape of her life.

She was the target of fans who slammed her sister’s lavish comments about her weight loss and “tiny waist” during an episode of the family’s E! Entertainment reality series.

Entertainment Tonight reported that Kardashian weighed 119 pounds at the time of her sister’s praise. She later apologized for the family’s comments.

“I one-hundred percent completely understand where people would be coming from that felt that way,” she said of those who were hurt or offended by how she and her family were talking body image. “My intention is never to offend anyone and I really apologize if I offended anyone.”

Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs on E!.
