Kim Kardashian has defended her infamous Paper Magazine photoshoot.

During an interview on Channel 10's The Project, Kardashian says the aim of the shoot was to "feel confident" about her body after the birth of her daughter North.

"I looked back at the clip of Keeping Up with the Kardashians last season and I was really heavily pregnant, I was about eight months pregnant, and I looked at my sisters and said, ' you guys, when I feel like I have my body back, I'm doing a nude shoot."

"For me, when I got the opportunity to work with the photographer Jean-Paul Goude, I was so honoured and excited to work with him and for me that was something I knew I wanted to do make myself feel confident," she revealed on the show.

When asked about how the pics are showing motherhood in a negative light, Kim said she did it for herself and no-one else.

"To each his own, as a role model I’m not saying anyone else should do that.

"I looked at it as an art project for me, this was going to make me feel confident and feel good and it taught me to do what you want to do.

"Everyone should do what they’re comfortable with. I’m never one to preach but I felt really positive and really good about myself.

"I loved the photos, I did it for me."
