The cover photo showcases the pregnant reality TV starlet ambling on a Grecian beach. She's wearing a stringy two-piece while she and her family were vacationing on the island of Mykonos in late April to film their E! show "Keeping Up With the Kardashian."

The gown designer, Riccardo Tisci, a close friend of West, defended his decision to dress Kardashian the way he did because he wanted to celebrate his good friend's "future wife" and "have a Kim Kardashian moment" because she always supports him.
"I have dressed many pregnant women in the past. People can say what they want. To me, pregnancy is the most beautiful thing in the world, and when you celebrate something, you give people flowers," Tisci told Women's Wear Daily. "I think she looked amazing. She was the most beautiful pregnant woman I dressed in my career."
