Kim Kardashian: Was Her Bikini Photo Doctored?

Were Kim Kardashian’s recent bikini photos doctored? That’s what the New York Post says, and they claim it was all Kim’s doing. A source tells them that Kim had her recent Us Weekly bikini shot photos taken by a ‘friendly agency photographer.’ Then she reportedly had them airbrushed before putting them up for bids from competing publications. The airbrushing supposedly made her look thinner, more toned and smoother all over.

Us Weekly obviously won the bidding war–coming in at $100,000. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star gets fifty percent of that–raking in $50k for her doctored photos.

The magazine, however, boasts on Kim Kardashian’s behalf, saying that just six months after giving birth to baby North West, her post-pregnancy body is already in bikini shape.

Reps from the Post say they saw Kim recently, and while she looks incredible just six months after giving birth–she doesn’t look anywhere near as good as those airbrushed bikini photos suggest.

Kim posted this Instagram photo two months ago, and she looked pretty darn good then.

Is it possible the New York Post has misconstrued exactly how much airbrushing was done on these recent bikini photos? These days everything that graces a magazine cover is airbrushed. Might it be that Kim’s airbrushing involved nothing more than the typical job done for every other cover model around?

While it would certainly be interesting to see Kim Kardashian in person, standing next to her Us Weekly bikini cover, it still wouldn’t be a deciding factor for whether or not she had her photos seriously airbrushed. Unless she removed her clothing, it would still be rather hard to tell.
