Kim Kardashian Posts Sexy Bikini Photo On Twitter Without Photoshop, Was It Really Unedited? [PHOTOS]
Kim Kardashian proved that she doesn't need the help of photo-editing software like Photoshop to make her sexy after she posted a racy bikini photo on Twitter, one of the many photos of her in a swimsuit out there in cyber space.
On Wednesday, Kardashian tweeted a completely unretouched, or so she says, photos of herself wearing a skimpy bikini and posing with her arms in the air, assets in tow.
"Sunrise summertime shoot! #nofilter #nophotoshop," she wrote on her Instagram, along with the picture.
Kardashian, 31, is seen in the photo wearing the tiny beige string bikini sporting a tan and minimal makeup. According to the reality starlet, the photo was a raw image, and never altered or edited through software like Photoshop.
Perhaps she was able to flaunt such a rockin' bod in photos, since she goes to Pilates on a regular basis.
"Barrys Bootcamp & pilates done before 9am! I feel good! Beast mode day 2! Double workout week!" she wrote on Wednesday.
Kim Kardashian has come under fire in the past for reportedly relying too heavily on Photoshop and nearly completely altering her looks. In March, the three Kardashian sisters, known for their sexy curves, appeared in an advertisement for their Kardashian Kollection Swimwear line. Photos for the ad were shot by Nick Saglimbeni and released by Bruno Schiavi, the co-creator for the Kardashian Kollection, show the girls' skin completely flawless. However, the photographer, who did not admit to any editing on the photo, said the Kardashian sisters are "comfortable in their skin."
"The girls are all very comfortable with their bodies and in their own skin, and they work with the same crew over and over so there is a comfort level there," Saglimbeni said. "They are so close as sisters, so it was really more of a situation where they just poked fun at each other the entire day."
The most infamous incident, however, was in 2009 when an image for Complex magazine circulated showing Kardashian without Photoshop. The magazine published heavily edited image covering the star's natural cellulite, which angered the starlet.
Kardashian responded to the Photoshop controversy by tweeting the original photo.
"So what: I have a little cellulite," Kardashian wrote in a blog entry entitled "Yes, I am complex!" "What curvy girl doesn't?!" "I'm proud of my body and my curves and this picture coming out is probably helpful for everyone to see that just because I am on the cover of a magazine doesn't mean I'm perfect," Kardashian says.
Unphotoshopped photos have become all the rage as of lately, after popular supermodels including Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum, Adriana Lima and Alessanda Ambrosio were seen in unedited images and circulated around the net. The photos, which were the casting photos for Louis Vuitton's Fall 2010 runway show, were posted on Reddit and went viral.
