The shoot saw Kim stripping completely naked, and although she was assured that no actual nudity was going to be featured in the photo spread, she was alarmed to discover that this was not the case.
At the time, Kim was furious, crying: “I am so f***ing mad right now… she promised me I would be covered with artwork on top of me! They weren’t going to show my ass crack or my nipples, this is full f***ing porn.”
Kim Kardashian's infamous meltdown
Despite her anger at the time, Kim appears to have put it all behind her now, as she's sharde a throwback behind-the-scenes photo on her Twitter page.
The NSFW snap shows Kim lying on her back, covered in silver body paint, while her photo is being taken.
However, she still isn’t ready to say anything especially favourable about the photo-shoot, simply captioning it: “Shooting my @wmag cover”, alongside a ‘Throwback Thursday’ hashtag.
Following her disappointing experience with W magazine, Kim vowed at the time that she would never pose naked again… although, as we all know, she's since gone back on this promise. Many times.
Last year, Kim stripped off completely for a photo-shoot with GQ magazine, after they named her their Woman of The Year.
Of course, that was merely a drop in the ocean compared to what came next, when she bore all for Paper magazine in her infamous ‘Break The Internet’ cover shoot.
