Kim Kardashian is on the cover of the February issue of LOVE magazine (out Feb. 9) and new photos from the 30-page feature, and multiple covers, are leaking onto the Internet. Right now everyone’s talking about this pic (of her naked, in-your-face bum), but I’m stuck on this cover, which Racked.com called “refreshingly ugly.”

I mean, Steven Klein likes to shock, but still, “ugly” is not a word I’d use to describe this photo. I actually think Kim looks kind of great here. The angles of her face--which haven’t looked so natural lately, to me at least--look softer and more pedestrian, in an off-duty Armenian royalty kind of way.

The floor is yours and I want to know:

  • Do you like Kim’s look in this photo? 
  • Do you think “refreshingly ugly” is a fair description, or just click-bait? 
  • WHY IS EVERYONE STILL SO SHOCKED WHEN A FAMOUS PERSON FAUX-BLEACHES THEIR EYEBROWS FOR A PHOTO SHOOT?!
