Kim also wrote: “I found these old photos from my December 2007 Playboy magazine shoot by Hype Williams and I had to post some of the behind-the-scenes fun we had on set. This was probably the first time I met hairstylist Clyde Haygood and worked with him. My makeup was done by Matthew VanLeeuwen.”
Kim also shared this photo for a recent cover of Vogue Mexico
“It’s such an honor to be on the cover of the October issue of Vogue Mexico. We went for so many amazing looks in this shoot, which was shot by Guy Aroch,” she wrote

Recently, a trailer for the 14th season of KUWTK in which Kim is seen telling Khloe she is expecting a third baby with rapper Kanye West. The couple already have North, aged four, and Saint, aged one.
At the very end of the video, Kim is shown FaceTiming with sister Khloe as she asks: “What happens every time I say ‘guess what?’,” to which the younger sibling replies: “You’re either pregnant or a person is pregnant.”
Then Kim jubilantly declares: “We’re having a baby!”
Earlier in September, it was revealed that the power couple are expecting a January due date for their third child.
Sources told TMZ that the surrogate and her husband are both African-American in their 20s, in a five-year marriage which has been described as ‘solid’.
The woman reportedly is a college graduate and registered Democrat. She has already had two young boys, and is said to be in ‘great physical shape’.
It was previously revealed that Kardashian and West had hired an unnamed woman through an agency to carry their baby for $45,000, which would be paid out in 10 equal installments.
It was reportedly also agreed the woman would receive an extra $5,000 per child in the event of multiple pregnancies and an additional $4,000 if she lost reproductive organs in the process.
