Harper's Bazaar: Favourite body part?
Kanye West: Is the face a body part? My favourite body part of Kim's; heart.
Kim Kardashian West: Awww, now I have to say the same. But of my own, I like my upper stomach. I just seem to always have abs. When I;m not really pregnant, I have a great two-pack [laughs]. And of Kanye's? I have to say his heart. And I've always loved his legs.
HB: Historical figure you identify with?
KKW: This one is hard.
KW: Us? Muhammad Ali, Marilyn Monroe. All day. Next question.
HB: Hidden talent?
KKW: I can smell when someone has a cavity. It's a very specific smell - not a bad-breath smell - but something that is really strong.
KW: I can analyse people's intentions. Immediately. That's just a warning to everyone.
KKW: I would say looking fat sometimes. I really do take it seriously. I try to do what I can and diet and stay in shape, and ti does make me insecure when I'm heavy.
KW: I used to have insecurity about my finances, then I announced that I had debt, and now I don't have any insecurities.
HB: Tweets you're proud of and tweets you regret..?
KKW: I don't regret any tweets. I'm not a tweeter and deleter. So I have no regrets.
KW: She hates tweeters and deleters.
HB: Kim, blonde or brunette?
KKW: Blonde. Brunette is who I am obviously, it's my core. Blonde Kim is this alter ego; she has a vibe to her that I love.
HB:What was the last thing you bought yourselves and each other?
KKW: The last thing I bought was a pair of Isabel Marant sandals. I don't wear flats so it's hard for me to buy sandals. Kanye is the hardest person to buy for, so I bought...
KW: You extended the bathroom and bedroom on the house.
KKW: I rented an island for his birthday. A far, far away place where no one can find us.
HB: What would you bring to a desert island?
KKW: My kids, my phone.
KW: Not me. [laughs]. I would bring my laptop and the internet.
HB: What would you do if you were invisible?
KKW: I would probably creepily follow my kids around, see how they act, see what they talk about. I record my daughter just talking because the things she says are so funny. I could watch her talk all day.
HB: How would you like to be remembered?
KKW: I'd like to be remembered as someone who was smart in business, works hard,and can be set and a mum. A powerful but still sexy, nonconforming woman. And I would hope that Kanye would be remembered for being smart and sticking to what he believes.
KW: Determined. My determination is way higher than smartness.
KKW: A lot of people have strong beliefs, but they don't have the confidence to really stick to them. I really respect Kanye for that.
