Kim Kardashian's 'Unretouched' Butt Photos Raise One Big Question

In some ways, she really did break the Internet. Here we are, days later, still talking about Kim Kardashian's bare-bottomed Paper magazine cover. The latest news? Supposedly, "untouched" photos of Kim's butt from the shoot were released -- supposedly. TMZ got a hold of the alleged untouched cover pic of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, and needless to say, it looks way different from what was published. Way different.


Here's the thing, though: The mag is claiming that the untouched photos of Kim are phony, and the Chief Creative Officer said that Paper didn't do any seriously drastic Photoshopping. Hmm ... what do you think? Kim is a gorgeous woman with an absolutely ridiculous body, but it's hard to believe that the retouching in the photos was minimal, being that ... well ... just look at the photos!

Pretty much any and every photo we see of a celebrity in magazines is retouched, including ones of the Kardashians -- and while it's not a great standard to set for young women, it is what it is at this point. But for young girls who look up to and idolize Kim to hear that there was practically no Photoshop (when clearly there was) is pretty terrible. So many girls have already gone to great lengths in an attempt to achieve the unrealistic standard that Kardashians have set in terms of beauty. What will they do if they think this is Kim's real body? Resort to surgery? Extreme diets?

Of course, it's unlikely that a magazine would ever admit that their cover girl is as retouched as the day is long, but I hope Paper doesn't expect everyone to buy this story. Again, it doesn't get much more beautiful than Kim, but come on -- really?

Do you think Kim's Paper photos are retouched?
