The shoot, called Painted Lady, sees Kate's skin turned alabaster, and the model dons a blonde wig, creating a centuries-old look.
She is pictured in more than a dozen couture gowns by the likes of Elie Saab and Dior.
In one shot, above, Kate lounges in a what looks like a bed of feathers, and is in fact a Giorgio Armani Privé dress, belt, and shoes, paired with a Chanel fine jewellery ring and vintage socks (seen throughout).
Another shot sees Kate look hauntingly at the camera as she models a Valentino Haute Couture gown and shoes, with the embroidered chiffon material pulled down to her waist.
Another image also shows Kate working a Cadolle corset and briefs with nothing but a Schiaparelli Haute Couture bolero with veil, antique necklaces from SJ Phillips, London, Elizabeth Gage rings and Manolo Blahnik pumps.
W editor-in-chief, Stefano Tonchi, said, "Photographer Paolo Roversi and W's fashion and style director Edward Enninful literally knocked the stuffing out of couture, zeroing in on the raciest, most sensuous looks of the season. These are not your typical ladies-who-lunch ensembles. "
