Kim Kardashian Flaunts Grill, Bare Baby Bump in CR Fashion Book—See the Pics!

Kim Kardashian may have already given birth to baby North West, but her baby bump is still making news!

The newly blond star fronts the cover of Carine Roirfeld's CR Fashion Book, looking oh-so-sulty in a hazy close-up that has her staring seductively into the camera as she parts her mouth to reveal a gold grill.

And, apparently, the new mom is more than pleased with the cover shot.

"OMG the COVER of Carine Roitfeld's crfashionbook #issue3!!! Shot by @karllagerfeld! Thank you…," she tweeted this morning.  

But we found the shots within the fashion magazine a bit more head-turning.

Namely, a picture of a very pregnant Kardashian baring her belly has us doing a double take. Clad in a bandeau bra and unbuttoned trousers, the new mom proudly shows off her baby bump in the fashion spread, which was indeed shot by Karl Lagerfeld and art directed by Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci.

You may remember the latter designer as the man who dressed Kardashian in her now-infamous floral dress at the 2013 Met Gala.

And just as she embraced designer creations throughout her pregnancy, the 32-year-old also dressed up in lovely labels for the glossy, sporting everything from a fashion forward tie-front dress to a decadent crystal face mask that reminds us of the Martin Margiela one her boyfriend Kanye West wore at a 2012 concert in Atlantic City.

Kardashian also shows off a slightly more casual side, wearing a New York Yankees baseball cap, but adding a bit of flair to it by layering a lacy veil underneath it. Hey, it's a fashion magazine after all!

But Roitfeld, who credits Tisci with suggesting Kardashian for the cover, admits she was happy to focus on the cover girl's growing belly.

"Pregnancy is something that I always love. It's about hope and the future and a new baby," said Roitfeld, who opted for a hope theme for the issue.

But she was also clear to stress the fact that her magazine's coverage of the new mom was still very much in keeping with its high-fashion feel.

"This is not something for a gossip magazine that goes into the trash," she asserted. "This is a magazine that is a collector's item."
