But, the expecting momma had some support from a very famous future family member! Kim Kardashian West stopped by the SKINtillating shoot to have some nice bonding time with her soon-to-be sister-in-law!
“Kim actually came by the shoot, which was really nice to see her giving encouragement to Chyna and talking to her. Kim came on set that day in L.A. and hung out for a little while.”
“They spent a lot of time sort of having a private moment so I wasn’t privy to what they talked about but my impression was she came to kind of give her support and encouragement and advice I would imagine.”
But, the editor admitted the funniest part about the whole visit was that she brought a copy of Kimmy’s Break The Internet issue to the set, and the 35-year-old just happened to show up!
However, Abby revealed the momma-of-two’s iconic cover didn’t actually influence Blac’s shoot:
“I would say obviously anything we do, anything that has nudity, we can’t not think of our Kim cover but I think we didn’t want to reference it really. In this case it was a totally different photographer, different team. I think also just the circumstances of figuring out a way to highlight and incorporate the pregnancy into the images was definitely a different scenario than of course what we were going for with Kim.”
In fact, she spilled about the vision photographer Charlotte Ruthorford had for Chyna’s SKINtillating spread:
“Obviously we knew she was pregnant and we worked with our fabulous photographer Charlotte Rutherford who has worked with us a few times before. We brainstormed with her some ideas and she put together a mood board that kind of highlights Chyna’s pregnancy and kind of had a style in very sort of feminine, elegant way that definitely incorporated nudity and was sexy but was done in a very sort of elegant, classic wayIt wasn’t like in your face sexy.”
Well, we think it turned out AMAZING!
