Kim Kardashian is working on a fresh start—and she’s definitely an optimist. “I think I will always believe in love, no matter what,” she says.
These exclusive photos are from her cover shoot with Norman Jean Roy in Los Angeles, for the March issue of Allure magazine, on newsstands February 21.On sharing so much of her personal life on camera, she reveals to Allure: “…definitely made me want to be more private with my relationship, whenever I choose to get into one again. I’m not ready, but when that time comes, I’ll be more cautious about who I let my world open up to.”

The star has been known to ask her 12 million Twitter followers (she calls them “dolls”) what color lipstick she should wear.

When they respond, she actually takes their advice. It’s this mix of fantasy and accessibility that makes audiences tune in to her family’s shows, Kardashian says: “It’s the glitz and the glam, but then we have the normal fights. I get a lot [of comments] like ‘I have no sisters and I wish I did’ or ‘I have tons of sisters, and we’re just like you!’ There are so many of us, someone can relate to one of us in the family.”
