Kim Kardashian sizzled in a skimpy black bikini while enjoying her time out at a beach in Malibu, California. She was accompanied by her former assistant and friend Stephanie Shepherd.

The reality star chose to wear a strapless skimpy black thong bikini. The simple yet hot look was completed with metallic tinted sunglasses and a black baseball cap.

The 40-year-old socialite made a public appearance in a 2 piece after a very long time, shunning all the critics and rumors regarding her body toning down. Regardless, of all the criticism Kim Kardashian was seen enjoying her leisure time while enjoying the pristine water and taking selfies from time to time.

Stephanie Shepherd also wore a similar black bikini but she was no match to her counterpart on the beach.

According to the Daily Mail, Kim Kardashian and Stephanie Shepherd used to work together and were very close. Shepherd rose to the chief operating officer of the Kardashian West brand from 2013 to 2017.

The two parted ways in 2017 but on friendly terms and claimed that there was no bad blood or feud involved in the process of parting ways.

Kim Kardashian hit the beach just a week and a half before she is set to host the famous “Saturday Night Live” for the very first time. Kardashian will be hosting the show along with Halsey on October 9th who will be serving as a musical guest on that episode.
