She has never been one to shy away from a revealing outfit.
And as Kim Kardashian approaches her 40th birthday next week, it seems little is set to change in how she presents herself over social media.
The reality star, 39, donned a figure-hugging black dress that revealed more than a hint of her G-string in a snap shared with her 190 million Instagram followers.
Wow! Kim Kardashian posed in a figure-hugging black dress that revealed more than a hint of her G-string in a new snap posted on Friday
Kim’s killer curves were clear for all to see, as she posed with her back facing the camera and her head turned round in a fierce stare.
The dress featured a huge cut-out design that revealed nearly all of Kim’s back, at the bottom of which her striking red G-string was extremely visible.
Kim’s perfectly etched smokey eye and striking eyeliner accentuated her beauty.

Kim has long had a penchant for revealing G-strings: In 2018, she shared a striking snap of herself sporting a vintage Gucci thong from 1997.
She was once again pictured from behind, wearing a tiny yellow crop top and matching bottoms.
Rising over the top of her yellow skirt was a whale tail, care of a stringy black thong with a metallic clasp at the middle.
But according to People, this particular G-string was not some limited edition designer item that’s just hitting stores. In fact, the undies were from a Gucci collection that’s over two decades old.
The thong first appeared in the runway as part of Tom Ford’s Spring/Summer 1997 collection for Gucci and was actually part of a bikini set.

Earlier this week, Kim shared a new behind the scenes video from a birthday themed photo shoot for her latest KKW Beauty collection which will drop at the exact time she was born next week.
Kim set pulses racing in the clips where she is seen popping out of her own birthday cake wearing a skimpy bikini top and see-through pants.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star posted a few videos from the photo shoot for her birthday collection press box on her Instagram story.

Her coveted figure was on full display in the clips with the beauty wearing a silver bikini with a triangle top that emphasised her ample bosom.
Over the bikini bottoms, Kim sported a shimmering pair of sheer silver leggings which she paired with sky-high Perspex platform heels.
The mother of four struck poses for the camera while she popped out of the top of a giant three tiered birthday cake with white, pink and blue icing.
The best images from the shoot were used for her new Opalescent Collection in honor of her 40th birthday.
‘The Opalescent Collection shades are bold, bright and spirited, and it was important that they could be versatile enough for everyday wear or to layer for a more intense glam look,’ the SKIMS founder wrote in a recent Instagram. ‘I loved creating this collection and I can’t wait to see the looks you create with it.’
She then noted that the Opalescent Collection launches on her birthday at the exact time she was born – Wednesday, 10.21 at 10:46AM PT. Opal is the birthstone for October.

Forget showers in the jungle waterfall and snakes slithering through camp — instead, think tin baths and thermal undies.
Welcome to I’m A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out Of Here! 2020-style, where contestants will be swapping the Australian rainforest for the soggy Welsh countryside.
Social distancing between contestants will be enforced by a ‘proximity buzzer’ — just one of a host of Covid-safe measures in place in order to keep the (highly lucrative) show on the road.
The crew has been whittled down to a fraction of the usual number, with many working remotely. Local sources suggest they will be staying in a caravan park in Conwy for the three-and-a-half weeks of the show.
A relatively down-to-earth local hotel will host the show’s executives, and presenters Ant and Dec are understood to be booked to stay in local cottages with their families.
Wales watching: I’m A Celebrity presenters Ant and Dec
Challenges for the celebrities may well involve swimming in freezing Colwyn Bay, abseiling down castle walls and finding their way through dark caves. It can be revealed there will be critters for the trials, even if they will mostly be non-native to the UK.
So what else is in store at Gwrych (pronounced ‘Goo-rreech’) Castle in North Wales? And who are the stars who will be taking part? ALISON BOSHOFF reports.
THE JUNGLE CREW
An Olympic hero, former soap stars and a prime-time TV presenter are all widely believed to have signed up for the show.
Mo Farah, one of the gold medal-winning stars of London 2012, is reported to be picking up £300,000 for his participation, with Vernon Kay and former EastEnders star Shane Richie netting £150,000 each.
Former Strictly dancer A.J. Pritchard, Coronation Street star Beverley Callard and ex-Eastenders actress Jessica Plummer are tipped to be among the celebrities, along with West End leading lady Ruthie Henshall, opera singer Russell Watson, broadcaster Victoria Derbyshire and paralympian Hollie Arnold.
There were early rumours that ITV was planning to blow the budget on bringing over Tiger King star Carole Baskin, but speculation seems to have moved to U.S. reality TV queen bitch Christine Quinn, from the hit Netflix real estate show Selling Sunset.
Fees paid can be as high as £500,000 — Noel Edmonds and Caitlyn Jenner both got this — but as low as £15,000.
Camp mates: Could Mo Farah and Victoria Derbyshire be heading to Gwrych Castle (far left)?
Location scouts looked at Warkworth Castle in Northumberland, Restormel in Cornwall and Tantallon, North Berwick in Scotland.
Others considered included Dunnottar Castle, on Scotland’s north-east coast and Wallingford Castle, in Oxfordshire.
However, Gwrych Castle, near Abergele on the North Wales coast, was eventually chosen.
Why? A source says: ‘If you look at aerial pictures of Gwrych Castle, you can see that it sits majestically on the side of a hill.
‘With its grey ruined walls and a forest backdrop, it visually at least almost replicates cliffs in a hillside rainforest.
The Gwrych (pronounced ‘Goo-rreech’) Castle in North Wales
‘It was really important to producers that the show remains tonally the same, so that while it’s obviously very different, viewers will recognise the programme.
‘The idea is that it will still feel the same — celebs will still forgo their luxuries, live on meagre rations and face their fears — but this will be done within a castle setting rather than a jungle one.’
The decision means a financial bonanza for the castle, which was bought two years ago by a Castle Preservation Trust which aims to restore it — ITV is apparently shelling out £1 million to take it over for six weeks.
Stage presence: Ruthie Henshall
It was once a popular visitor attraction, but closed in 1987.
As the show cannot be done ‘at home’, it will not be cancelled even in the event of a full national lockdown.
The castle is reputedly haunted, and Richard Cowles of ITV Studios promises ‘plenty of thrills and surprises’, but no rush towards the supernatural.
Instead, the theme will be more medieval and challenges will be ‘Game Of Thrones style’. A source cautions: ‘We are not making an episode of Most Haunted.’
That said, the castle has hosted ‘ghost hunt’ nights for four years, and visitors have apparently seen a woman in white, perhaps Winifred, Countess of Dundonald, who died in 1924.
Dr Mark Baker, who heads the preservation trust, says: ‘During the summer, I was walking with someone and we saw a bright light hovering above the garden, which I just can’t explain.’
FOOD & WOOLLIES
Rice and beans will be on the menu as the basic ration. Usually the beans are cannellini, but this year they will be haricot beans in a nod towards that oh-so-British cupboard staple, baked beans. Celebrities will compete to add local delicacies such as Welsh lamb to their rations.
Other returning elements include the red phone box, where campmates receive a quiz question to answer for the chance to win a treat for their campmates.
The celebs’ outfits have been adapted to suit the Welsh winter — they’ll receive a full set of thermal underwear as well as a padded gilet.
THE BIG BUILD
Aerial pictures reveal that a massive building programme has been undertaken at the castle.
The ruined crenellated walls have been made structurally sound, with studio and living areas created. A bush telegraph and outdoor loo can be seen, and there is a platform atop a rampart, from where Ant and Dec may present the show.
There is also a huge marquee thought to house a production hub. Catering is being done elsewhere.
There will be protection for the celebs from the elements in the form of retractable canopies — these were also used in Australia to prevent the campfire from being extinguished in downpours.
A source says: ‘This isn’t a Bear Grylls-style survival show. Weeks of soaking wet and cold celebrities will not make for great television. That said, the place is not full of creature comforts and it will still be all about working for rewards.’
East to West: Jessica Plummer
DOWN ON THE FARM
Crew and support staff will be put up in mobile homes on a farm close to the castle.
The farm’s website shows no pitches at all are available to the public in November.
The number of crew has been minimised — in Australia there were up to 600, now it’s thought to be well under half of that.
Editing and support staff will work from home or at ITV offices in London, while the art department and much of the set build has been done elsewhere.
Some execs are thought to be staying locally at the Kinmel and Kinspa hotel.
No families will be coming along for a free holiday, as usually happens at the Palazzo Versace hotel in Queensland.
Filming will still be a 24-hour operation — to catch celebs getting up in the night (remember Carol Thatcher in 2005).
Matters will be simplified by the lack of time difference, though, with most of the team working during the day rather than through the night, as they do Down Under.
There will still be a live element each night where Ant and Dec go in to camp to announce who will do the next Bushtucker Trial.
A raft of measures will be used to maintain safety, and these may change between now and November 15, when the show is expected to start.
There will be close-contact cohorts — presenters Ant and Dec are in one of these, which means that they are able to stand side-by-side and not two metres apart.
Ant, 44, explains: ‘We’re working on Britain’s Got Talent and other things at the moment. So we get tested every four days. We can sit next to each other and stroke each other. We have to be careful as to where we go and who we see.’
Dec adds: ‘We’re like Premiership footballers . . . and that’s where the similarity ends. Our households are connected and we form a cohort.’
There will also be bubbles, and the celebs will form one of these. All will strictly isolate for 14 days before entering camp and then associate only with each other.
For the crew, there will be masks and social distancing, and proximity buzzers to ensure two-metre distances, which will go off if anyone gets too close to someone else on the set.
Everyone at the castle will be regularly temperature checked.
A source says: ‘The production team have a very experienced health and safety department, going above and beyond putting all possible measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety.
‘The crew are used to operating under strict protocols in Australia. There were only five crew allowed on a jungle bridge at one time, for example. Here again, there will be limits to how many people can be in an enclosed space.’
THE MISSING MEDIC
There will be no Dr Bob, the Australian medic — he will be replaced by a local medical team. Previously he revived nutritional expert Gillian McKeith when she fainted and memorably pulled a cockroach out of Fatima Whitbread’s nose.
ON THE MONEY
The budget for the show is usually thought to stand at between £12 million and £15 million, making it the most costly on the network.
I hear the move to Wales has not resulted in any savings as a whole new camp had to be set up — and new challenges. Some even suggest it’s costing more to be in Wales.
A source says: ‘The show has come from a standing start. The whole infrastructure had to be put in place — creative ideas, format, location, production and that’s before we even got to Covid protocols.’
The show may return to Gwrych and some executives think it could be an idea to have it in Australia and Wales on alternate years.
GLOBAL TRAVEL BAN DID FOR THE JUNGLE
For a few months after Covid hit, executives were hopeful that by November it might just be possible to put the show on as usual in a banana plantation in Dungay, outside Brisbane.
Initially, there was a plan to get the celebs to come without their families, and quarantine for two weeks before the show. The idea of hiring an all-Aussie crew was also mooted.
However, by mid-summer, with lockdown in the UK and travel restrictions globally, ITV executives accepted Australia would no longer be possible.
Boss Kevin Lygo promised to ‘move heaven and earth’ to have the show in the autumn schedule — it is reputedly the most lucrative show in ITV’s armoury, drawing audiences of up to ten million, including the young and affluent who are almost every advertiser’s target.
A source says: ‘You can’t imagine autumn television without the jungle, and producers worked long and hard to try to make the show work.
‘They had hundreds of contingency plans in place but, by late summer, it became clear Australia wasn’t going to happen.
‘Furthermore, a decision had to be made because if the show was going to move, there comes a point where that plan needs time to be executed properly.’
Richard Cowles, director of entertainment at ITV Studios, says: ‘We pulled out all the stops to try to make the series happen in Australia — but it became apparent it just wouldn’t be possible to travel and make the show there.’

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo reacted to Chelsea Handler’s claim that she ghosted him, in an interview on The View on Thursday.
The 62-year-old politician was asked about a potential romance with the Chelsea Lately personality, 45, on the ABC program, a day after Handler’s claim.
‘I did have a conversation with Cuomo a few months ago, and I did ask him out on a date,’ Handler said Wednesday. ‘And he did say yes. And then I never heard from him.’
The latest: New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, 62, reacted to Chelsea Handler’s claims that she ghosted him in an interview on The View on Thursday
Cuomo on Thursday said on the program, ‘On my dating life: I’m only dating in-state residents, I’m dating New York residents,’ as he continues working on battling the coronavirus pandemic in his home state.
He left the door open for Handler, who resides in Los Angeles: ‘If Chelsea changes her residence, then maybe we can work it out.’
Handler spoke about how handsome she thought Cuomo was in a Wednesday appearance on the show. She said she found herself attracted to him watching his daily COVID-19 update conferences this past spring amid the massive outbreak in New York.
The View’s Sara Haines asked Handler what she found so alluring about the governor, while slipping in the fact he would be appearing on the show the next day.

Hubba, hubba: Handler called Cuomo a ‘big, Italian hunk’ during her chat on The View
‘First of all, he’s like a big giant: He came in like the Incredible Hulk, right?’ ‘Handler said. We needed someone to come on the scene. We were so dehydrated for real leadership.’
She continued: ‘Then he came on the scene, looking like this big, Italian hunk. He was like, “Wear a mask,” I was like, “I’ll wear a mask, I’ll put a mask on every part of my body. I want to flatten your curve, and you can flatten my curve and then we can both apex together.”‘
Cuomo laughed at Handler’s words, saying in response: ‘I’ve had a lot of conversations about flattening the curve, but never quite that way. I’m a big fan of Chelsea’s and she is great. We have fun.’

Handler’s love life was broached in a subsequent question from guest host Ana Navarro.
She mentioned Handler’s current spat with ex-boyfriend 50 Cent after he pledged his support for President Donald Trump earlier this month.
‘You sound like you’re going to be very busy here saving the Republic,’ she laughed. ‘And please, please, tell 50 [Cent] if he’s going to be joking around about supporting Trump, he might want to wait until after the election to tweet out such jokes, ’cause they ain’t very funny right now.’

He wrote: ‘[Man facepalming emoji] oh my God this is effecting my love life now. @chelseahandler.’
Chelsea kept the conversation going as she retweeted her ex’s latest tweet and even offered to pay his taxes. She wrote: ‘Hey f***r! I will pay your taxes in exchange for you coming to your senses. Happily! Black lives matter. That’s you, f***er! Remember?’

This came just two days after the In Da Club hitmaker tweeted a shot of the tax rates proposed by Democratic candidate Joe Biden and running mate Kamala Harris.
The Biden proposals could see those earning more than $400,000 a year hit with rates of 62.6 percent for those who live in California residents, and 62 percent for people who live in New York City.
The If I Can’t rapper rapper wrote: ‘WHAT THE F***! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT. F*** NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway.’
He added: ‘I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f***ing mind.’

The current top U.S. statutory tax rate is 37 percent with the average earner in the highest tax bracket paying 26.8 percent after taking into account tax breaks, including loopholes, deductions, exemptions, credits and preferential rates.
It is not the first time 50 Cent has backed Trump – appearing to show his support for the Republican before the 2016 election.
In March 2016 he posted a photograph of the two of them together, with the caption: ‘Me and My President maybe, only in America’.
50 Cent also showed support for the president in 2016, posting this Instagram photo in the months before the election

She shared last month that she was making pottery out of clay mixed with her late husband’s ashes ‘as a way to keep him living.’
And on Thursday, Nick Cordero’s widow Amanda Kloots showed off the finished vase on her Instagram.
The tall receptacle was decorated with a heart and held a huge bunch of long-stemmed white flowers.
‘I intend to always keep flowers in it’: Nick Cordero’s widow Amanda Kloots showed off the vase she made out of clay mixed with the late actor’s ashes on Instagram on Thursday
Kloots, the mother of the actor’s one-year-old son Elvis, smiled happily as she posed for the photo in an orange blouse and with her blonde hair falling loose around her shoulders.
In the accompanying caption, she wrote: ‘My beautiful vase that Elvis and I made with some of Nicks ashes is done! I cannot believe how it turned out.’
Kloots continued: ‘Elvis and I put our handprints into the clay before it was fired.
‘I intend to always keep flowers in this vase, reminding me of Nick every time I look at it.’
Gone but not forgotten: Kloots, the mother of the actor’s one-year-old son Elvis, said the unique pottery would remind her of Cordero every time she looked at it
Creating memories: Kloots had shared images in mid-September showing herself and Elvis making a vase out of clay at a pottery studio
‘Beyond beautiful’: She explained that the clay was mixed with some of Cordero’s ashes and that turning it into something new was ‘a way to keep him living!’
Lasting memorial: ‘This was so incredible and really felt special. A way to turn something sad into something joyful,’ she shared at the time
Kloots, who married Cordero in 2017, posted images in mid-September showing herself and her little boy throwing clay mixed with ashes on a potter’s wheel.
She explained at the time that the experience had been ‘incredible’ and ‘a way to turn something sad into something joyful.’
She also shared that she had scattered some of his ashes in the Pacific Ocean as well.
The rising Broadway star succumbed to complications of COVID-19 in July after three months in intensive care in a LA hospital. He was 41.
Gone but not forgotten: Cordero died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA on July 5 where he’d been hospitalized since March suffering from complications of COVID-19. He was 41
Kloots and Elvis have subsequently moved into the home in LA’s Laurel Canyon that she and Cordero purchased after relocating from New York City.
They were in the process of remodeling the property when the actor became sick, and he never got to live in the home.
On October 20, Kloots shared a photo of the couple and their baby posing on a street in the heart of the Laurel Canyon community.
‘One year ago today we found our home in Laurel Canyon. You can see the open house paper in Nicks hand,’ she wrote.
What should have been: On October 20, Kloots shared a photo of herself, Cordero and their son posing on a street in LA, sharing: ‘One year ago today we found our home in Laurel Canyon. You can see the open house paper in Nicks hand’
Home: While the couple took possession of the house before Cordero fell ill, pictured in a snap Kloots shared, the actor never got to live in it. Kloots and Elvis finally moved in in August
The 38-year-old, who is making a living as a fitness instructor, has been focused on raising her son and also on keeping Cordero’s memory alive.
She’s been working with her sister Anna on a memoir of her time with the Rock Of Ages star, his long battle with COVID-19 and how she’s coming to terms with his death.
Live Your Life: My Story of Loving and Losing Nick Cordero is set to be published on June 29, 2021, by HarperCollins, Playbill.com reported.
‘It’s about everything I went through, and about positivity and faith and resilience,’ Amanda explained in an interview with the New York Times last month.
‘There are parts of every day that I get sad, and there are parts of every day where I cry,’ she shared. ‘But I also have to find the little things throughout the day that make me happy, or else I know I won’t survive.’
She credits her son Elvis with helping her get through the dark times.
‘Even when I want to be sad, he’s just so cute that you end up smiling and laughing. He looks like Nick, and he has a lot of Nick’s personality,’ she said.
