With her petite height and sensational curves, Kim Kardashian is strikingly different from the fashion world's skinny, statuesque ideals.

But the reality star certainly looks perfect as a cover girl for the latest issue of InStyle magazine.

The socialite, 31, looked stunning as she poses in a sexy red dress and black heels, which elongates her legs in a behind-the-scenes look at an upcoming feature in the UK edition.

A
behind-the-scenes video of an accompanying photo shoot for the magazine
shows Kim slipping her famous figure into various different sexy yet sophisticated ensembles.

The curvy star is particularly red-hot showing off her legs in a floor-length gown complete with slit-to-the-thigh.

During the sophisticated shoot, Kim also tries on a black long-sleeved sheer dress and a navy body-con ensemble on for size.

Shot by Milk studios, it appears that the setting was a private property somewhere in Los Angeles.

InStyle's Editor Eilidh MacAskill says
of her covergirl: 'Kim Kardashian is fascinating, driven and a hugely
successful business woman. In addition to this, she was incredibly
professional and a genuine pleasure to work with on the InStyle cover
shoot in Los Angeles.'

Kim and Kanye's relationship is going
from strength-to-strength since the couple first revealed that they were
dating back in April.

Last night Kim somewhat cemented her position in the world of rap WAGs as she attended the BET Awards on the arm of West.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star even sat with the King and Queen of the hip hop world and her boyfriend's close friends, Beyonce and Jay-Z.

Kim also recently spoke about the closeness she shares with Kanye in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

In the broadcast, which aired last weekend, Kim said West 'knows everything' about her.

The reality star finds her relationship with Kanye – who was left devastated when his mother Donda died from complications from cosmetic surgery in 2007 – 'comforting' because they get along so well and can relate to each other's life experiences.
