EXCLUSIVE: Kanye West caresses Kim Kardashian's bare breast in intimate shoot from French magazine
She says Kanye West has taught her a new respect for her personal privacy.
But that obviously doesn't mean Kim Kardashian is shying away from the limelight.
Far from it, in fact, as the photogenic couple pose for intimate pictures for L’Officiel Hommes’ Spring 2013 edition.
Getting intimate: More shots from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in L'Officiel Homme magazine have been revealed
In the atmospheric black-and-white photographs Kanye is holding his girlfriend’s left breast as she gazes at the camera.
Clenching his fist with his right hand, the rapper plants his lips firmly on her face as she expertly smoulders in the highly stylised images by well-known photographer Nick Knight,
Only the top of Kanye's head can be seen while his businesswoman beau displays her buxom chest.

The previously released cover shows an apparently naked Kanye embracing Kim.
The inside shots were exclusively revealed to MailOnline by the respected French men's magazine.
Several more photographs show Kim taking the reigns as she covers up her lover's eyes with one darkly manicured hand and pulls open his mouth with the other before leaning in for a smooch.
In another image a lock of hair can be seen tangled around her thumb up as she presses her body against his for the cameras.
While the content of the shots are perhaps not too much of a surprise for followers of Kim and her reality shows, it is somewhat out of character for Kanye.

Fashion forward: Kanye models a black top with his gold chain for the publication
He is notoriously private about his life aside from music and fashion, and in the remainder of the snaps which don’t star his girlfriend; he tends to focus on style.
Only one frame shows his face on as he tugs at the back of his T-shirt and flashes his thick gold chain while the others are his profile.
One striking shot shows him rising onto his toes and splaying his arms to let his jacket fall down.
On the cover the reality star caught in an expression sure to make her daughter blush as Kanye reveals his bare back, wrapping his arms around her.

Kanye was seen on Sunday arrive at the Celine fashion show in Paris, France.

Shameless: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West pose on the cover of the spring issue of French magazine L'Officiel Hommes
Kim was spotted landing in the area that day, dressed in an ensemble that she was previously seen leaving her Beverly Hills home in.
The former Dancing With The Stars contestant chose an all-white ensemble, opting for a glamorous long white jacket, with an unusual pleat at the hip.
The 32-year-old wore the designer piece over white trousers, and despite her advancing pregnancy, the star opted for nude stilettos.
It comes shortly after Kim was forced to shut down rumours she is planning her exit from Keeping Up with the Kardashians after season nine.
It had been suggested that Kim may want to leave the show following the birth of her first child with Kanye West, after claiming her baby will not appear on television.

Double denim: The rapper donned a brown coat over his jeans and denim shirt
Kim told DuJour magazine: 'I think there's always an evolution of, you know, what you want to do in life. It's all about finding things that really excite you and motivate you and spark you all over again.
'I'm realising that no matter what, if you go into something with all these expectations and plans, once you're actually living it, it could be completely different.'
Kim also told the publication that rapper Kanye has taught her 'a lot about privacy', and after his own reluctance to appear in the series, perhaps it wouldn't be a surprise if she did decide to bid farewell to the Kardashian bubble.
'I'm ready to be a little less open about some things, like my relationships,' Kim added. 'I'm realising everyone doesn't need to know everything. I'm shifting my priorities.'
