The mother-of-one stunned fans last week when pictures were published in Paper Magazine showing her completely nude and flaunting her bare bottom for the camera.
But appearing on Australia's The Project today, the star defended her decision to go starkers… and added that she'd warned everyone before!
Kim explained she'd said on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians last year that she wanted to do a naked shoot when she regained her pre-baby body.
"I looked back at a clip last season and I was heavily pregnant, eight months pregnant and about 500lbs, and I looked at my sisters and said, 'When I feel I have my body back I am going to do a nude shoot!'
"People were replaying that saying, 'She warned us, she told us she would do this!'"
Kim, 34, said she was excited about working with the photographer, Jean-Paul Goude, who is known for his nude portraits.
"I was so honoured and excited to work with him. He's a legend and for me, it's something I knew I wanted to do to make myself feel confident. To each his own. As a role model, I'm not saying anyone else should do that but I looked at it as an art project for me that would make me feel confident and good.
"It taught me to do what I want to do. Everyone should do what they are comfortable with. I'm never one to preach but I felt very positive and good about myself. I love the photos, I did it for me. I hope everyone else likes them."
As for those numerous memes that have been circulating online poking fun at Kim's pictures, she doesn't care!
In fact, Kim sees the funny side, saying: "You have to have a sense of humour about it. I'm glad I can now eat a little bit as I was trying not to eat so much that week."
Kim is currently in Australia on the first leg of a promotional tour for her fragrance. She'll travel to India and Dubai as well, and make a special appearance in the Indian Big Brother house.
