Call it the Kim Kardashian Effect: Mrs. Kanye West's fashion designer BFF, Olivier Rousteing, has just followed in his lady-friend's bare footsteps by posing nude on the cover of a magazine

The man behind Balmain — and the man behind Balmain's behind — is featured on the March 2015 issue of French gay glossy Têtu, wearing little more than a stack of friendship bracelets. Photographed by André Atangana and François Rousseau, it's a gorgeous shot: Despite Rousteing's small stature, he's arguably got the bone structure (and clearly, the bod) of a top male model. 

The 28-year-old Parisian, who also guest edited the issue, told WWD that the naked pic was his idea. "I wanted to show that being naked is one of the most chic things. It’s an expression of a concept," he said.  

...Imagine how cheap and NSFW fashion would be if everyone felt that way?

The issue hits French newsstands Wednesday.
