Kim Kardashian and Kanye West enjoy first kiss in public
They’re fast becoming one of the hottest new celebrity couples, and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have now sealed their fledging relationship with their first public kiss.
The 34-year-old rapper accompanied the socialite, 31, as she preened and posed for a paparazzi-themed photoshoot for Vogue Italia magazine, and in between shots treated her to a tender smooch.
Kanye waited patiently behind the scenes and checked out every sultry snap in a monitor before sitting the brunette bombshell on his lap during a break and giving her a romantic kiss.
It’s no wonder the ‘All Falls Down’ hitmaker couldn’t keep his hands off his new girlfriend, as Kim looked stunning as she poured her hourglass curves into a corseted leather dress.
However, with her usually long locks teased into a new cropped style, there was no doubt that Kim bore more than a passing resemblance to her mother, Kris Jenner, 56.
“Amazing shoot today for Vogue Italia! Thank you for your creative genius!!!” the star tweeted after the shoot.
Kim’s younger sister Khloe, 27, recently praised Kanye for getting along so well with the Kardashian family.
“Because they've been friends for so long, it's just so easy and that's something I love seeing for Kim - the easiness and how happy she is,” Khloe said during an interview on ‘Watch What Happens Live’. “And it's just more of a great friendship and friendships make the best relationships.
“We've known Kanye for like nine years. He's great with the family, but again we've known him for so long. It's not like some stranger getting into a hurricane.”
Kim’s new relationship comes after she filed for divorce from basketball star Kris Humphries, 27, in October, just 72 days after they tied the knot.
