Paper magazine kicked off the holiday season Tuesday with a boom-boom-pow, tweeting out its Winter 2014 covers, one featuring a NSFW butt-baring Kim Kardashian covered in oil as she emerges from a black beaded evening gown.
On another cover, Kardashian is actually wearing the gown and is recreating photographer Jean-Paul Goude's famous "Champagne Incident" portrait, in which a naked model, posing from the side, balances a glass on her butt and sends a stream of Champagne flying over her head and into the glass from the uncorked bottle in her hands.
"Break the Internet Kim Kardashian," the mag entreats (though what it really means is "make a meme, Internet...make a meme"). Both versions can be viewed at Paper.

"And they say I didn't have a talent...try balancing a Champagne glass on your ass LOL #BreakTheInternet," Kim tweeted as she helped to get the word out.
Goude did the honors this time as well for Paper, which will be unleashing the rest of this issue on Thursday.
"Paper Magazine new cover alert! — such a honor to work with the legendary Jean-Paul Goude!!!! Shot this in Paris. Can't wait for you to see the whole issue," Kim promised, sharing the fully dressed cover on Instagram.
Actress Naya Rivera and singer Lorde took to social media to air their views on the risqué covers. Check out the following clip from "Today":
