Kim Kardashian Shows Off Giant Baby Bump As She Strips Off For Karl Lagerfeld Pregnant Shoot (VIDEO)

Kim Kardashian may have kept her baby bump fairly covered up throughout majority of her pregnancy, but footage has now been released showing the reality star posing pregnant for French magazine CR's Fashion Book.

In the Karl Lagerfeld shoot, Kim can be seen wearing a stunning beaded mask and even donning washing up gloves before she then strips down to reveal her huge baby bump.

Kim gave birth on June 15 to baby North, so was less than a month away to the birth when she posed for the shoot.

Last week, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star took to Twitter to post: "OMG the COVER of Carine Roitfeld's crfashionbook #issue3!!! Shot by @karllagerfeld! Thank you… (sic)".

Despite the revealing shoot hitting the headlines, not always for the right reasons, the French magazine editor defended the whole thing.

Speaking about the quirky images taken of Kim, Carine Roitfeld told the New York Post's Page Six: "I think people are very tough in fashion. When we photographed her pregnant — I love pregnant women — she was beautiful.

"She was beautiful to cover; she is beautiful inside. I think she's happy now. She has her baby, North, and I hope this will be a good souvenir for her."

Meanwhile, she also spoke of Kim and Kanye as a couple, insisting that they are "normal."

Speaking at the premiere of the new documentary film, 'Mademoiselle C', on Friday, she continued: "They are lovely together", before continuing to gush: "We decided we would do a story about her. Immediately she said, 'Yes'. She was one of the easiest models I have ever worked with."

She added: "She's not a model, but she was pregnant, you know, and I love pregnant women. Honestly, she was very, very nice. She made no demands at all."
