Kim Kardashian West's 'powerful' nude shoot

KIM Kardashian West felt "powerful" doing her nude photoshoot.  

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star - who posed fully nude for Paper magazine - is reportedly feeling "beautiful" following the shoot, which she did for free.  

A source said: "It was mostly Kim's idea [to do the shoot]. She loves it. It makes her feel powerful.  

"It makes her feel beautiful when she's all in front of the camera naked."  

The 34-year-old television personality's husband, rapper Kanye West, is believed to have been incredibly "supportive" towards Kim regarding the photoshoot.  

The source added: "Kanye's supportive of most of her ideas and he's often telling her 'yes, do it, go for it' when she bounces ideas off him."  

Meanwhile, an insider has also revealed that Kim wanted to use the photoshoot to show off her post-baby body, after she gave birth to North 16 months ago.  

A source told "Kim felt vindicated because people were talking about how bad she looked when she was pregnant with North.  

"A lot of mean and negative stories were written about her. She wanted to show her haters that she still has a banging body."  

Her personal trainer, Gunnar Peterson, recently revealed that the star's secret to maintaining a good figure is just the result of "hard work".  

He previously said: "She just trains - she's one of the hardest working people inside and outside the gym.  

"Just grind, grind, grind. The work Kim puts in, she knows it pays off."
