Kim Kardashian has once again cracked her way into magazine-cover history.

Paper magazine kicked off the holiday season tonight with a boom-boom-pow, tweeting out its Winter 2014 cover featuring a butt-naked Kim, covered in oil and providing a head-on view of her bare backside as she casually emerges from a black beaded evening gown.

Her hair is up in a funky bun and her only other accessories are black satin gloves and a dramatic pearl choker. The 34-year-old E! star's waist is rendered all the more tiny in comparison with her perfectly peach-shaped buttocks.

"Break the Internet Kim Kardashian," the mag entreats (though what it really means is "make a meme, Internet...make a meme").

Meanwhile, that's only the after shot!

On another cover, Kim is actually wearing the gown and is recreating photographer Jean-Paul Goude's famous "Champagne Incident" portrait, in which a naked model, posing from the side, balances a glass on her butt and sends a stream of champagne flying over her head and into the glass from the uncorked bottle in her hands.

"And they say I didn't have a talent...try balancing a champagne glass on your ass LOL #BreakTheInternet," Kim tweeted as she helped to get the word out through, er, back channels.

Goude did the honors this time as well for Paper, which will be unleashing the rest of this issue on Thursday.

"Paper Magazine new cover alert! - such a honor to work with the legendary Jean-Paul Goude!!!! Shot this in Paris. Can't wait for you to see the the whole issue," Kim promised, sharing the fully dressed cover on Instagram.

The only thing the magazine promises about the issues to be found inside its pages later this week is, and we quote: "Holy f--king s--t."

Cheers to classiness (and genius marketing) all around! And give the oil guy a raise while you're at it!
