Kim Kardashian Throws Curves for Cosmo Body Issue (photos!)

Kim Kardashian, the most famous person for merely being famous in all of famedom, shows why she captures such attention in a new photo shoot for the UK edition of Cosmopolitan magazine. Who better to pose for the body issue?

Kardashian, who just turned 30, channels Bridget Bardot with her teased up hair in a black bikini and platform heels, which help elevate her tiny 5-foot, 2-inch frame.

Kim also sprawls on a white couch, and shows off her luscious lips in a series of close-ups in low-cut tops.

Not to miss a beat, Kim hyped the photos on her Web site today (Apr. 26). “This was such a fun and sexy shoot and I love the way the photos turned out,” she says.

Kim has never had too much of a problem posing in revealing photos, including a dazzling 2007 shoot for Playboy magazine.

And, she’s the first to admit she has flaws.

“It’s crazy anyone should assume that just because you’re in the spotlight, you’re flawless,” she tells the magazine.

“Sometimes I pig out and I still feel great, and think, “That was so worth it!” That’s how I feel a lot of the time.

“I think, ‘See this little dimple of cellulite here? It was so worth it for that cookies ’n’ cream ice cream!'”

Kim loves to eat and says being stuck on a diet all the time would make her “really miserable.”

In fact, she’s known as the yo-yo diet queen for losing the same 10 or 20 pounds over and over again, depending on the magazine cover.

Too keep from going too far overboard, Kim says she follows a workout created by celebrity trainer Tracey Anderson, for Gwyneth Paltrow.

“My reality is never going to be stick-skinny,” she says. “I want to be fit for the long term. That’s why I’ve never even tried a cigarette in my life.

“I only started to drink last year when I turned 30. I occasionally have a Midori sour but I’m not a big drinker. I can have fun without it.”

And she always has sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian to keep her in line.

“Having a bunch of sisters is like built-in best friends,” she says. “We pump each other up and compliment one another.”
