Even though we have seen it before, it pretty much always makes headlines whenever one of the Kardashian or Jenner girls gets naked. It always ignites some sort of controversy and I just don't get why. Nudity is empowering to some people and modesty is empowering to others. I don't think anyone has the right to tell people what to do with their own bodies, but it does happen pretty much every time these ladies post a photo. And I just do not get it. They work hard for their bodies and are comfortable sharing them with the world. It should be something that is applauded, not scolded. Besides, there are plenty of people who post nude photos for no money and a couple Instagram likes. At least these girls are capitalizing on their global fame and making some money all while promoting body positivity.
Sadly there is a heavy amount of hate and praise whenever this family strips down. Pretty much every time it happens there is some sort of social media conversation about feminism and setting a good example using the latest buzzwords. The people who don't want these photos online ironically bring more attention to them. This coupled with the love from fans means that this family is bound to take over the internet every single time they get naked.
Check out 20 times that Kardashian/Jenner nudity broke the internet
19 Kim Bared It All For Paper Magazine
This wasn't the first time that we saw Kim Kardashian naked, but there was just something so forthright about her Paper Magazine photo shoot that just took the internet by storm. I mean it even had the phrase "break the internet" on the front cover. When the cover shot made the rounds online, people were outraged and turned on by Kim's oiled up butt being out in the open. And then people just went absolutely batshit crazy when they saw the other photos from the spread. Kim was just standing there completely naked with her hands at her side, nipples out, and vagina uncovered.
18 Kim Got Naked To Verify Her Pregnancy
No matter what Kim Kardashian does, says, or wears, she will be criticized no matter what. So when Kim announced her second pregnancy and was still looking super sexy a few months in, people started to question her and wondered if she was faking her pregnancy or had a surrogate carrying her child. Mrs. West shut down those insane accusations when she posted a naked selfie to show off her beautiful pregnancy belly. Along with the pic, she posted a pretty eloquent caption about body shaming and accepting every body for what it is, pregnancy or not. And once again, the photo and the rant made headlines and checked all of the haters.
17 Khloe Had An Impromptu Nude Shoot
I am shamefully super into everything Kardashians, but I just never got the point of paying to access their websites or phone apps. I always wondered what I would be paying for and I never like to buy anything unless I'm sure. Well, now I see why people pay. Khloe posted previews of her random naked photo shoot on her Instagram and put up the rest on her official website. Now we all see that all of that hard work on her diet and fitness has been paying off....big time. Khloe Kardashian has gotten some heat over the years for looking different than her sisters and nowadays she is starting to realize that different is good and she is proud of it. Khloe is just on her A game these days and nothing is going to hold her back.
16 Kylie Bared Her Booty
As sick as it sounds, everyone was waiting for Kylie Jenner to have her first naked or semi-nude photo shoot once she turned eighteen. She is obsessed with Instagram and SnapChat, showing us all that she is not photo shy. Oh and she's the youngest in the Kardashian/Jenner family, so of course she has what it takes to turn up the sex appeal. So when she had her booty out in this Interview Magazine shoot, people sure had a lot to say about the teenager sexing it up. And aside from that Kylie Jenner also posed in a wheel chair for the same magazine shoot, which did not go over well. So this photo spread broke the internet in many ways.
15 Kourtney Flaunted Her Revenge Body
Kourtney Kardashian has always been hot and in my opinion she has been extremely underrated over the years when it comes to Kardashian conversation. After Scott Disick publicly shamed her by hanging out with an ex, she kicked him to the curb and focused on herself and her children. And in the process she ended up with an even hotter body than she already had. Revenge really looks good on her. I have no idea how Scott Disick could ever step out on Kourtney Kardashian. Just look at her! She has the most perfect body. That dude made quite the mistake. Shaking. My. Damn. Head.
14 Kris Was A GILF In The Pool
People have been making jokes for years about Kris Jenner trying to be the fourth Kardashian sister. She is always crossing that line between being a mother and a friend and that boundary between being a behind-the-scenes manager and a star in her own right. But we all know that as much of a business mind Kris has, she really doesn't mind being the center of attention, but no one ever saw her like this: in a wet, white tee with her nipples out in a pool. She really rocked it though. Love her or hate her, Kris Jenner is the ultimate GILF.
13 Kim Wore Body Paint (And Nothing Else)
If you are a fan of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, you have to remember Kim Kardashian freaking out and crying over her W Magazine photo shoot. It was one of her best cry sessions ever. So why was she so upset? She posed naked for the shoot and ended up being naked in the photos. I'm not sure what was so surprising about that but the dramatics ensued. Kim thought there was going to be some sort of photoshop or other graphics covering up her private parts and when that didn't happen and she was just naked covered in silver paint, she started hysterically crying. Eventually, she ended up embracing the shoot and even posted a #TBT with a behind-the-scenes of the photo spread. I don't get why she was so upset in the first place, she looked so hot in that silver body paint so she should have just owned it from the beginning.
12 Kendall Shared Her Nipple Piercing
As a supermodel, Kendall Jenner has some iron clad contracts with many high profile brands. So I'm sure that this means that she cannot alter her look too much. This means that she probably can't just dye her hair random colors, rock certain brands in public or get conspicuous tattoos. So how can Kendall rebel when it comes to her body? She got a nipple ring. That's a pretty bad ass move, but it's also rather discrete since her nipples are covered most of the time. Well, they are usually covered except for in this photo that she posted to celebrate her insane amount of Instagram followers.
11 Kim Declared Herself To Be "Liberated"
Once again, Kim Kardashian got a lot of heat for posting a naked selfie online. I don't know why anyone else cares about what she does with her body, but they have no right to judge her. If Kim wants to be naked, then let her be naked. She works hard for that body and she is proud of it. So what did she do after she received a ton of hate online? Kim posted an epic Twitter rant and then posted another naked photo, of course. This time she captioned it with "#liberated" and it was just the most perfect way to shut down her shaming haters.
10 Kourtney Showed Off Her Pregnancy Body
If I didn't love Kourtney Kardashian so much, I would absolutely hate her for being so perfect. Even when she was pregnant with her three kids, Kourtney Kardashian was still incredibly sexy. She is one of those rare people who has both that beautiful pregnancy glow and gains her weight in the most ideal proportions. It can even be argued that she's at her best when she's pregnant, that's how good she looks. Kourtney was not at all shy about showing off her pregnancy body in Dujour Magazine. She took all her clothes off and even threw on a wet, white t shirt for one shot. If anyone can be smoking hot during pregnancy, it is Kourtney Kardashian and once again she had the internet blowing up with people liking, commenting, and sharing these amazing photos.
10. Kim Went Full Frontal For Love Magazine
This wasn't the first time that we have seen Kim Kardashian West full frontal with the nudity and it wasn't the last, but it is still pretty shocking to see anyone's nipples and vagina without any sort of attempt at concealment. Props to Kimmy K. Most people would never have the confidence to just be one hundred percent naked for an entire photo shoot. Sure, people hate on her for taking her clothes off, but it really is so much more than that. She is empowered and comfortable in her own skin and it's pretty brave of her to put herself out there. Plus, she works so hard for that sick body, she might as well show it off. Good for Kim. Needless to say a lot of people were feeling this Love Magazine shoot.
9 Khloe Stripped Down For PETA
This shoot was a first for Khloe Kardashian. Khloe was completely naked for a PETA ad campaign and by herself without the comfort and security of having her sisters with her (as weird as that sounds). Nevertheless, this was one of the first times we got to see the youngest Kardashian sister step out on her own instead of just as one third of the sisters' family empire. And the girl definitely helped the organization get their point across. I mean why wear fur when you can just look hot and be naked? That sounds way better to me and Khloe looked phenomenal.
8 Kendall Got Naked For Calvin Klein
Calvin Klein ads are always iconic so it is a big deal that Kendall Jenner is a part of the brand's campaigns. And the best part about these Calvin Klein ads is that there is historically very little clothing involved. It doesn't really make sense to promote a fashion brand without showing a lot of clothes, but it always works out for Calvin Klein. If anyone can make Calvin Klein look good it's a topless Kendall Jenner. Everyone loved seeing her pose for the iconic campaign.
7 Kourtney Tweeted A Peak At Her Nipple
You are probably checking out this photo and wondering why it is even on this list. We have seen the Kardashians in bras and bathing suits pretty often, so it's not exactly breaking the internet at this point. Well, then you just breezed past this one a little too quickly. This pic that Kourtney tweeted has a little bit of nipple peeking out in this selfie and even if you didn't notice, Kourtney's ex Scott Disick definitely did and even posted a public comment about the nipple's appearance: "Hell yeah get it girl I know 3 kids that those nips made into perfect angels." And needless to say the photo with the aid of Scott's comment was definitely a major story.
6 Kendall's Nipples On The Runway
So this is not exactly nudity, but it had the same effect when it came to breaking the internet. Some people say that nudity doesn't count unless there is nipple showing so the fact that Kendall Jenner has clothes on and you can see both her nipples full on, definitely pleads the case for some middle ground. And once again a Kardashian/Jenner nipple started a ton of online chatter. Kendall was not even trying to be provocative when she was just wearing whatever she was told to, but you know that people were not going to let her nips strut down the runway unnoticed.
5 Kim Posed As GQ's Woman Of The Year
When Kim Kardashian West was chosen with the distinction of being selected as British GQ's Woman of the Year in 2014, she just had to bring it when it came to the photo shoot - but that's nothing new for her. Not only that, but she also had an excuse to show everyone that she could pull off the blonde hair especially when she's received some backlash for the look. So of course she upped the ante and got naked. And she was smoldering hot. Kim has mastered the art of placing her limbs perfectly over her nipples and other lady parts just to keep a little bit of mystery when she sees fit. Once again, everyone was buzzing about her body and I don't care what haters said because she looked so hot.
4 Kendall Got Sexy In The Shower
Kendall Jenner is just stunningly beautiful and just like the rest of her social media followers, I will never ever get over it. All of her photos make a splash on the internet. Every time she gets naked it is basically fine art. There is never anything tacky or crass about it. Kendall is always perfect: even when she has smeared makeup on in the shower. Whenever I rock this style it's by accident and I look like a hot mess. No matter what Kendall Jenner does she looks super gorgeous and sexy without even trying.
3 Kim Took It All Off In The Desert
I don't know how she does it, but Kim Kardashian West is always finding some new inventive ways to be naked. Haters are constantly saying that she is always naked, but she is never nude the same way twice. She is pretty innovative when it comes to her nudity and she is willing to go all out to get that perfect shot. She even went all the way to a desert to have a perfect backdrop for the photos. And she mixed it up with some artfully placed body paint. Needless to say, Kimmy K slayed the game once again.
2 Kim Posed Naked Without Retouching
People are always hating on celebrities, especially Kim Kardashian, for all the extra help they get when it comes to their personal appearance. The stars get their hair done, makeup contoured, fillers injected, and workouts dictated by personal trainers. Oh and then there is photoshop and airbrushing. So no one knows what is real and what isn't. Kim Kardashian made headlines for being naked in this unretouched photo shoot for Harper's Bazaar. Not only did she show everyone that she was comfortable in her own skin, but she also looked amazing without any additional help. There is absolutely nothing to hate on here.
1 Kim Posted A Full Frontal Selfie
This naked selfie is the latest to cause Kardashian kontroversy. I honestly don't get why so many people were up in arms over this one. We have seen her naked before and she even had the key parts covered up when she tweeted this pic out, but SO MANY people really went in on her. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a wife and mother of two being sexy and it was absurd that so many people judged her and shamed her in a public forum. So many people were liking, commenting, sharing, and arguing about the photo. It really started a debate about women empowerment and became more than just a standard nude photo. Say what you want about Kim Kardashian, but she is not doing anything wrong. Plenty of fools are sending naked photos with nothing in return and Kimmy K has the power to start discussions about feminism, slut shaming, female empowerment, and other topics all with one photo post. If that's not breaking the internet, I don't know what is.
