We've got all the exclusive behind-the-scenes details on Blac Chyna's naked Paper magazine photo shoot!
Believe it or not, Chyna's soon-to-be sister-in-law Kim Kardashian, who first posed naked on the mag almost two years ago, was on set to give the Rob & Chyna star some guidance.
"Kim actually came by the shoot, which was really nice to see her giving encouragement to Chyna and talking to her," Paper Managing Editor Abby Schreiber told E! News exclusively on Monday. "Kim came on set that day in L.A. and hung out for a little while. They were chatting and it was funny because I was at the shoot in L.A. and before I left New York to head out there we thought it would be fun to bring a couple copies of the latest issues of Paper and of course I had to bring a copy of the Break the Internet issue because I just wanted to give them to Chyna and it's kind of funny that Kim actually turned up and low and behold her magazine was on the table."
Schreiber added that Kim was nothing but supportive during her visit to set. "They spent a lot of time sort of having a private moment so I wasn't privy to what they talked about but my impression was she came to kind of give her support and encouragement and advice I would imagine," Schreiber revealed.
While Chyna's fiancé Rob Kardashian wasn't on hand during the shoot, her son King Cairo was there and acted "super cute" all day, Schreiber says.
As for the concept of Chyna's nude pictorial, Schreiber dished, "Obviously we knew she was pregnant and we worked with our fabulous photographer Charlotte Rutherford who has worked with us a few times before. We brainstormed with her some ideas and she put together a mood board that kind of highlights Chyna's pregnancy and kind of had a style in very sort of feminine, elegant way that definitely incorporated nudity and was sexy but was done in a very sort of elegant, classic way…It wasn't like in your face sexy."
And no, Kim's naked Break the Internet cover did not influence the concept behind Chyna's. "I would say obviously anything we do, anything that has nudity, we can't not think of our Kim cover but I think we didn't want to reference it really," Schreiber explained. "In this case it was a totally different photographer, different team. I think also just the circumstances of figuring out a way to highlight and incorporate the pregnancy into the images was definitely a different scenario than of course what we were going for with Kim."
Needless to say Chyna's nude cover turned out perfect. "She looks awesome!" Schreiber added.
