Photos of Kim Kardashian Naked in Silver Body Paint for W Magazine Art Issue 2010; Gucci Westman's How-To

Heavy Metal: The Secret Behind Kim Kardashian's Silver Shoot

The majority of you felt that Kim Kardashian's naked W cover was a tad unnecessary. 'Specially considering her regret over posing sans clothing for Playboy. Still, doesn't stop everyone and anyone wanting to know the who, what, why about her silver body paint for the art issue. So here goes . . .

The body painter: Gucci Westman aka Revlon's International Creative Director aka GENIUS.

Umm, the why: It was for W's annual art issue so they had to do something out-there and, well, arty. “I wanted it to look like Kim was dipped in silver, like she was liquid,” she told W. And silver because . . . well it's chic. Fair 'nuff.

The how: Gucci used Kryolan Aquacolor silver body paint with Make Up For Ever silver powder. Then a metallic Revlon eyeshadow was used to highlight certain areas of Kim's famously curvy frame.

The how-long: Gucci said the application took 30 minutes tops. Good news for those who want to go all Silver Surfer up in people's faces.

The what-say-you: Well? Whaddya reck? Will you be cracking open the body paint tonight?
