Kim Kardashian Does Not See Herself Posing Naked in 10 Years: 'I Don't Know What Age the Cutoff Is'


Fans get a super close-up look at Kim Kardashian West in Allure  magazine. 

The 36-year-old reality star is featured on the cover of the publication's October "Best of Beauty" issue, and while she typically poses in high-fashion ensembles or nothing at all, this photo shoot is almost solely made up of tight shots of her face.

@KimKardashian admits was scared to go on last year's infamous trip to Paris before it even happened. She was afraid of a terrorist attack. She’d never experienced anxiety like that before. She even went to a therapist about it. And North, sensing her mother’s anxiety, wanted to reassure her. “She gave me a little plastic treasure box, and she put her little jewels in it — like fake little plastic jewels — and she was like, ‘Mommy, this will keep you safe when you go to Paris.’ ” We get up close & very, very personal with #KimKardashianWest, who opened up about everything from the Paris robbery to what she and Kanye did for their wedding anniversary this year.

Kim -- who attempted to "break the internet" in 2014 with naked photos of herself in Paper magazine -- admits that she sometimes wonders if there's an age limit to posing nude.

“I’m like, 'I’m going to tone it down,'" she confesses. "But then I’m like, 'Wait, I can’t be doing it in 10 years. So, I might as well.'"

Kim adds, "I don’t know what the age cutoff is [for posing naked].”

Following in the footsteps of her younger sister, Kylie Jenner, Kim recently launched her own line of makeup, KKW Beauty, and shares her love for getting all dolled up. "I’ve been sitting in a makeup chair every day for practically 10 years," she notes. "I fell in love with makeup and how it can transform you and make you feel good about yourself.”

Kim is such a fan of makeup, she quips that she might make a whole career out of it once her daughter, North, is all grown up.

When asked what she wants to be when she grows up, Kim exclaims, "A makeup artist. Maybe I’ll be North’s makeup artist!"

"I’m really happy doing exactly what I’m doing, honestly," she continues. "I’ve never been happier in my work life than right now."

ET spoke exclusively with Kim about her beauty collection, and how she wants her and husband Kanye West's work ethic to rub off on their children. 

"I hope that they find their own motivation -- no matter what that is, no matter what they want to do in life," she said. "I hope that they work really hard. I think they have good examples."
