The 38-year-old reality star is interviewed by her husband, Kanye West, in the new cover story for Vogue Arabia.
The shoot, which is art directed by Kim's pal, designer Manfred Thierry Mugler, features the stunning mother of four posing next to columns out in the desert. Though the looks are very structured, Kim is an open book while talking with her rapper husband.
“I try to be a good person and to take my mistakes and make them into a better experience -- to learn and grow from them and move on,” she says of her shortcomings.
“Even in my darkest times I don’t regret putting myself out there for the world to see. People have shared with me over the years how much it has helped them to feel less alone when dealing with their own adversity. I love having a voice and I appreciate the platform I have been given, even though I do wish I could have more privacy at times.”
One level of privacy Kim doesn’t get is when she and her famous sisters have public spats on their show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. So who is she currently the closest to?
“It changes, just like friends or relationships go in and out. I think this year has been a really strong Kim and Khloe year. I’m obviously so close with Kendall and Kylie too but I’ve spent so much more time on this earth with Kourtney and Khloe -- 16 and 17 years longer with them,” she tells Kanye. “We have more history, have been through so much together, and we have more friends in common. Kourtney and I will always be really close, but this year, Khloe and I really bonded.”
The sisters recently vacationed together with their children in the Bahamas, and Kim is still swooning over the picturesque spot and time with her youngest children, Chicago, 1, and Psalm, 3 months.
“Me and my Chi Chi,” the proud mom captioned a series of photos with her little girl on the beach.
