Hot and bothered: Kim Kardashian shows her sweaty side on the March cover of Allure.

So, yeah, 2011 didn't turn out to have quite the fairy tale ending Kim Kardashian intended. But, hey, the girl's not going to sweat it.

Or maybe she is. For her sultry March cover shoot with Allure, the reality star positively glistens thanks to a combination of misted water and Rodin Olio Lusso on her bronzed skin.

Norman Jean Roy's beachy shoot sees the fragrance guru seducing the camera in curve-hugging knit tops and a black bikini worn under a denim button-down, while her normally perfectly coiffed locks are given messy, oiled-up waves for that spent-the-day-surfing look. 

But while this hot divorcée may look ready to hit the meat market, Kardashian says she's cautious about getting into another relationship after her short-lived marriage to Kris Humphries (perhaps you've heard of it?).

"[The divorce] definitely made me want to be more private with my relationship, whenever I choose to get into one again," she tells the magazine. 

"I'm not ready, but when that time comes, I'll be more cautious about who I let my world open up to."

And if she happens to ever walk down the aisle for a third time, she promises it won't be another media circus.

"I would just want it to be so special, with our family and close friends, and that's it," she says. "Somewhere on a deserted island, very private. No cameras."

As for kids? Let's just say there are a lot of options ...

"Absolutely," the Sears designer says when asked if she'd like to have children. 

"But I don't know if that's what's meant for me. Maybe I'll just work, work, work, and not think about it ... Khloé joked with me and said, 'Will you be my surrogate?' I said, 'I think I have a couple more years when I just want my body to myself. At 35, I promise I'll consider it.'"

That will certainly make for a juicy plotline! Speaking of which, Kardashian also opens up about broadcasting her personal affairs to millions of viewers, especially after the fallout from her marital split.

"Is it tough to watch [the show]," she asks. "Yeah. Tough to see an unhappy time in your life. Do I think there are more haters than before? Not really. But I think this has given them a platform to have a louder voice."

Oh, we're sure she'll bounce back. Doesn't she always?
