Of Course Kim Kardashian Didn't Do a Normal Pregnancy Photo Shoot

C'mon now, who really expected Kimmie to do a boring fashion shoot for a magazine?

Kim Kardashian may have pulled off the ultimate coup for an attention-seeking, media-savvy celeb: Nearly three months after giving birth to daughter North, she's got people talking about her pregnancy. Again.

The reason? These jaw-dropping photos -- taken by Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld when the reality TV star was clearly ready to pop -- published in high-fashion mag CR Fashion Book.

The cover and accompanying photo spread, showing Kardashian wearing haute couture, were clearly designed to be edgy and provocative -- but we can't help being a little grossed out by the pic that shows her with red jam smeared all over her mouth. While it's possible that the photographer was just having fun with Kimmie's pregnancy cravings (what mom-to-be hasn't dipped a spoon into the jam jar), it's just a little too evocative of blood (and the mess of childbirth) to us. 

Then again, that's probably the point. We're all talking about Kim Kardashian again, aren't we? Check out the photos, below:
