Kim Kardashian Digitally Altered To Look Skinnier In Post-Baby Photoshoot: ‘It’s Easy To Shave Off 20-30 Lbs,’ Expert Reveals

Looking svelte and sexy, Kim Kardashian flaunted her trim figure in the reality star’s first post-baby photo-shoot for the family’s Kardashian Kollection.

But it appears the 33-year-old could have shed those pesky pregnancy pounds with the help of Photoshop, has learned.

Kardashian — who gave birth to baby daughter North West in June — wore curve-hugging mini dresses during the Terry Richardson directed fashion shoot, leading many fans to believe the baby weight had just melted away.

However, Giles Fabris, the chief executive officer of, a leading photo and retouching service, told Radar that Kim’s flawless look was likely due to “good, controlled lighting” and “a little smoothing around her curves.”

When asked to compare the reality of the reality star — like these photos, here — the digital alteration expert conceded: “It is easy to shave off 20 to 30 pounds with Photoshop.”

Prompting even more concerns that Kardashian had a helping hand is this image that she shared on her personal blog from the set of the Richardson shoot — looking noticeably fuller.

This isn’t the first time the mother-of-one has come under fire for using Photoshop to alter her image.

In 2009, the curvaceous Keeping Up With the Kardashians star proudly posted a pre-Photoshopped photo on her blog from her sexy Complex Magazine shoot, compared to a more polished version.

“So what: I have a little cellulite. What curvy girl doesn’t?!”  Kardashian wrote in a blog entry entitled “Yes, I am complex!”

Despite what fans and critics might have to say about her digitally enhanced bod, Fabris praised the star.

“Any image that is used to make a profit will be altered to make a person look perfect. Kim can’t be looking like an old bag,” he joked.

“Kim is a photographer’s dream and has a body millions of women wish they had. A great photographer is going to do everything in his power to make her look her best.”
