Think Kim's being modest? Think again...

Kim Kardashian loves a bit of ‘Throwback Thursday’. That’s when you post an old photo of yourself looking 13 and spotty, mainly, or wearing a horrific outfit your mum trussed you up in back in the day, if you didn’t know.

All very funny and cutesy, but don’t think for a moment that Kim K is being in the slightest bit self-effacing with the above vintage photo of herself and old pal Nicole Richie that she’s shoved on Instagram for all to see.

Of course, it’s cute. Nicole has braces and is doing a thumbs up, and Kim‘s smiling a huge toothy grin that she’d never do now.

But… this is just another Kim K ‘look at me!’ moment.

She looks bloody amazing at the moment, just seven months after becoming a mum – we all know that – and she’s worked hard at it, too – though the question rumbles on about whether she Photoshops her photos or not (scroll through my gallery and see for yourself).

For me, this photo, titled ‘#ThrowbackThursday @nicolerichie and I being oh so cool at 13 years old’, is just another example of Kim screaming from the rooftops, ‘Look at me! I look amazing compared to this!’

Which is fine. I mean, obviously, nobody wants to be 13 and geeky again.

But Kim, we’re not silly. Stop trying to be modest, madam, because YOU AIN’T. This photo comes just a few days after your maybe-doctored ‘belfie’ (God, I hate that word, but it does do the trick) snap with pal Blac Chyna.

You know, the one where the door frame next to Kim is mysteriously curving inwards… in line with her waist. 

Make of that what you will. There might just be a trend for curved doors in LA, but hey.

Mixed messages, Kimmy. Apart from the big one screaming, ‘Me, me, me!’

Ah well.

Just one more thing – I wonder if Nicole is annoyed that Kim posted a snap of her wearing braces on her teeth…
