Long before she took her three month long hiatus from her social media accounts, Kim Kardashian was the queen of selfies. Like most social media users in this digital age, the socialite loves a good selfie or two, or in her particular case, several hundred. Kim's love for selfies even inspired her to publish her first photobook in 2015 titled Selfish.
Selfish is a compilation of some of Kim's most up-close and sexy selfies that she has taken over the decades. But before you go scoffing at the idea of publishing a book filled with duck-lipped selfies, there is in fact an art behind taking the perfect selfie.
Some of the elements that go into producing a flawless selfie are lighting, angling and posing. Kim Kardashian has proven herself to be a master of each technique having said in a T-Mobile commercial, "You want to blow out everything that you don't want to see and highlight the things you want."
In addition to posting some of her best money shots to her Instagram and Kim Kardashian West App, it should come as no surprise that she joined Snapchat earlier this year. Prior to the infamous Paris robbery that took place in October, Kim fiddled around with some of Snapchat's most popular filters. And in typical Kim Kardashian fashion, she has broken the Internet by posting some of the hottest Snapchats. Although we may never know if Kim will fully recover from her trauma and post sexy snaps in the future, we have these Snapchats to pacify us in the meantime.
14 Kim's Very First Snap
Watch out Kylie, there's a new snapchatter in town! Kim finally joined the long list of celebrities with snapchats earlier this year. It was only a matter of time before the starlet allowed us to get an even more intimate sneak-peek of her day-to-day life aside from her show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. It was only appropriate for Kim's very first snap to feature a flawlessly contoured face alongside sissy Kourtney. Kim takes her own "chin down, camera up" advice and produced a perfect selfie accenting her glowing upper-cheekbone highlight.
13 No Filter
Kim Kardashian bares all and no, we are not talking about her nudes. If you're no stranger to Snapchat, then you know how addicting and intriguing the filters can be. Most of the filters offer flattering effects such as enlarged eyes, a slim face, and even longer eyelashes.
12 Blondes Have More Fun
Whether it's her famous long dark tresses or a short blunt cut, Kim Kardashian can pull off pretty much any hairstyle, including platinum blonde. She is no stranger to experimenting around with different hair colors, cuts and styles. She has been a redhead, sported cornrows, and extensions. Luckily for Kim, she has a glam squad that is able to transform her look at her liking. When she was spotted rocking a blonde wig she Tweeted,"I brought the platinum back!' she Tweeted. 'I looooveeee being a blonde, and this time I can change it up if I want, because—thanks to Tokyo Stylez —it's just a wig!"
11 Sisterly Love
There is nothing quite like sisterly love, and if there are any group of sisters that show support and love for one another it is certainly the Kardashian-Jenner sisters. Although it is not quite a selfie, Kim still shows off her supermodel little sister Kendall Jenner, and her BFF Gigi Hadid who are equally as hot. Sometimes you can't hog all the shine!
10 Kinky With Kanye
While celebrating a friend's wedding, Kim shared this intimate pic of her and her hubby Kanye West. Kim, who wore a very intimate expression while Kanye sensually touched her collar bone. Although both of their eyes are closed, Kim has a sixth sense when the cameras are around and made sure to throw up the peace sign as someone snapped a pic of the lovebirds.
Between the Paris robbery and concert rants, 2016 was a hectic year between Kim and Kanye. Shortly after Kim was robbed, Kanye went on disturbing rants during his concerts from the Saint Pablo tour. Fans were upset that Kanye would not perform certain songs. During his performance in Los Angeles, Kanye went on a rant about Beyonce and Jay-Z and why he was upset that the two didn't console him and Kim after the robbery.
Who says moms can't be sexy and have fun? The reality star let loose while shaking one of her most famous assets while on a girl's boat trip. Kim was photographed earlier that month on the beach while caring for her two children North and Saint. Not for nothing, there is a good reason why Kim has a peach emoji placed next to her display name on Snapchat.
When the world was first introduced to Kim, it was under conditions in which I'm sure Kim could take back. But in recent years, Kim is now flaunting her body now more than ever and is making no apologies for it. Given her stance on body-positivity, many believed that Kim would be a feminist. However, Kim actually does not want to be labeled as one. On her website, she penned, “I'm all about empowering and uplifting women. Obviously, there are things about me that people might say make me a feminist: I work hard, I make my own money, I'm comfortable and confident in my own skin, and I encourage women to be open and honest about their sexuality, and to embrace their beauty and their bodies.”
8 Curves Galore
When it comes to curves in the Kardashian family, Khloe and Kim are a close match. Their curves are so impressive, there are rumors that Kim's derriere is fake. While she denies wearing butt pads, she does admit that she wears shapewear. After wearing a sheer outfit which revealed more than intended she explained, "I definitely never want that to happen again, so now I always wear shapewear. Sometimes, they have a sheer cutout like these capris from Body Wrap."
She took a more aggressive response to the fake-butt rumors when she posted on her Twitter: "I'm seeing all these nonsense tabloids claiming I have butt implants-injections. Get a life! Using pics of me 15lbs skinnier (before I had my baby) comparing to me now! I still have weight to lose."
Kim Kardashian undoubtedly wears the crown of being the queen of selfies but being the queen of Snapchat is a close second. Filter or no filter, Kim certainly knows all of her most flattering angles. In this Snap, Kim's long hair casually frames her face she effortlessly produces another gorgeous snap. Whether she's lounging around the house or on the way to a wedding, Kim lets us know that you can never have too many selfies.
6 Fine and Fit
Who knew going to the gym could look as sexy as Kim makes it. Kim rocked a two piece gym attire but made sure to capture the moment. If you want to be as fine as being fit feels, you may want to take a note or two from Kim. She regularly shows herself working out with her personal trainer while running up hills and other exercises. Her workout regimen includes running 4 miles, planks, push ups, jump rope and abs.
5 Closet Selfie
Leave it to none other that Kim to pose in a closet full of expensive clothes with a swimsuit on. Now, that's confidence. Kim posted a following snap prancing around in a closet with clothes everywhere but informed her followers that that messy closet did not belong to her and was in fact her step-father's Caitlyn Jenner's. It is said that Kim was helping Caitlyn pick out an outfit for the ESPY awards. Kim jokingly posted another snap with the hashtag #AnnoyingAlert poking fun at herself as she snapchatted away in Caitlyn's closet.
4 Turbo Thot
Say what you want about Kim Kardashian, it is obvious she is a marketing genius. Kim sported a one piece which read "Turbo Thot". The phrase is part of her Kimoji app which features hundreds of customized emojis.
The app, which has been in the works for two years is available for both iPhones and Androids. On her website, Kim stated, "It's been so fun coming up with these different ideas. I wanted it to be fun and relevant. I wanted to create emoji that everyone wishes they had. And we wanted to push the limits as far as we could, LOL!"
3 The Duck Lips Master
One of the keys of taking a perfect selfie is lighting. Kim, a master of selfies, captured this selfie while intertwining natural sunlight with dark shadows. She even showed a cleavage as a bonus in the full shot. But one would be surprised to learn that even Kim is weary of using duck-lips. "I love it because it gives you cheekbones—though it does make people mad," Kim said as she gives a heads up.
2 Kim's Komeback
Social media and selfie enthusiasts were on edge wondering when Kim would return to social media. Her much publicized robbery in Paris, France, scared the reality star out of the spotlight for months. The entire Kardashian team and millions of fans couldn't wait for her return to normal.
1 Midnight Spray Tan
You'll never know what to expect from the Kardashians, especially Kim. Kim K posted this Snapchat showing off her spray tan baring it all. "Nothing like a midnight spray tan, you guys," Kim said. Kim was in Miami supporting her husband's Saint Pablo tour.
Despite her being in the gorgeous sunshine state, Kim opted for a spray tan in her own hotel room rather than soak up some sun rays. Who knows why she chose to go for a spray instead of a natural sun tan. Maybe it was rainy outside, or perhaps she wanted to avoid her droves of fans and opted for the privacy of a salon.
