Kardashian West is pictured on the cover of the magazine popping open a bottle of champagne which lands in a glass perched on her bottom.
In another image released by the American publication, Kardashian-West is pictured naked from behind provocatively dropping her dress.
Two further images were released by the magazine last night which show the reality TV star baring all; in one full-frontal shot and another topless image.
For the shoot Kardashian West wears a custom made dress, a cluster of pearl necklaces and earrings by Mikimoto, vintage black satin gloves and a top-knot hairdo.
The magazine explains its choice of cover star:
"For our winter issue, we gave ourselves one assignment: Break The Internet. There is no other person we can think of who is up to the task than one Kim Kardashian West."

The shoot was photographed by the legendary French photographer Jean-Paul Goude who chose Kardashian West to recreate his iconic image at a secret location in Paris.
The 34-year-old reality TV star made light of the cover, tweeting:
"And they say I didn’t have a talent…try balancing a champagne glass on your ass LOL #BreakTheInternet #PaperMagazine’
