Blac Chyna, aside from being astoundingly beautiful by any set of beauty standards, remains one of the most mystifying figures in pop culture today. She initially rose to fame through her prowess as a stripper, even getting a shoutout in one of Drake’s early tracks.

Her stardom rose thanks to her attachment with the rapper Tyga, but now Chyna is a force of empowerment entirely on her own. Rarely has this been on clearer display than in the new issue of Paper magazine, wherein she graces the cover of the magazine’s “1,000 Beautiful People” edition.

Though this isn’t the first time Chyna has stunned as a cover star–that would be her jaw-dropping NSFW shoot for Richardson mag–this is certainly her first while heavily pregnant. Shot by Charlotte Rutherford, the shoot depicts her as a modernist angel, aided by pieces from Palace Customs and a few items of vintage Dior.

The accompanying cover story addresses this impending change in her life, as well as her imminent marriage to Rob Kardashian and their revealing new reality show, Rob and Chyna. The upcoming series will prove to be one of the most intimate glimpses into her life yet, and as her cover story shows, she’s more than ready for it.
