Blac Chyna & Kim Kardashian Bonded at Paper Magazine Nude Photo Shoot
Rob Kardashian's fiancée Blac Chyna is raising some eyebrows with her naked cover for Paper magazine, and she got some advice on the set from none other than Kim Kardashian.
Chyna's soon-to-be-sister-in-law Kim Kardashian, who "broke the Internet" with her own nude cover for the magazine two years ago, was also on hand for the cover shoot. Paper magazine's managing editor Abby Schreiber told E! News, "Kim actually came by the shoot, which was really nice to see her giving encouragement to Chyna and talking to her. Kim came on set that day in L.A. and hung out for a little while. They were chatting and it was funny because I was at the shoot in L.A. and before I left New York to head out there, we thought it would be fun to bring a couple copies of the latest issues of Paper and of course I had to bring a copy of the 'Break the Internet' issue because I just wanted to give them to Chyna and it's kind of funny that Kim actually turned up and lo and behold her magazine was on the table."
She went on about Kim's set visit, "They spent a lot of time sort of having a private moment, so I wasn't privy to what they talked about, but my impression was she came to kind of give her support and encouragement and advice, I would imagine.”
Though Blac Chyna posed nude, Schreiber revealed that Kim's past cover was not the inspiration behind the shoot. She pointed out, "I would say obviously anything we do, anything that has nudity, we can't not think of our Kim cover, but I think we didn't want to reference it really. In this case it was a totally different photographer, different team. I think also just the circumstances of figuring out a way to highlight and incorporate the pregnancy into the images was definitely a different scenario than, of course, what we were going for with Kim.”
On how they came up with the concept for Blac Chyna's photo shoot, Schreiber explained, “Obviously, we knew she was pregnant, and we worked with our fabulous photographer Charlotte Rutherford, who has worked with us a few times before. We brainstormed with her some ideas and she put together a mood board that kind of highlights Chyna's pregnancy and kind of had a style in a very sort of feminine, elegant way that definitely incorporated nudity and was sexy but was done in a very sort of elegant, classic way… It wasn't like in-your-face sexy."
