Kim Kardashian is one of the most powerful women in the world; she's got several reality shows, managed to snag Kanye West's heart (while married to another man, mind you), and even likened herself to Jesus Christ! But she still can't seem to get free clothes from high-end fashion designers!
The reality TV starlet trusted stylist Nicola Formichetti to transform her style for an Elle Magazine shoot. Formichetti, who has styled other A-list celebs such as Lady Gaga, admits that dressing Kim was a challenge. "People wouldn't lend me the clothes. But that's fashion snobbery," he explained in the issue.
Fashion snobbery aside, Tom Ford, Oscar De La Renta, and Roberto Cavalli all lent their clothes, and Kim looked gorgeous from head-to-toe (but we're not so sure about the drag queen makeup).
With a baby on the way, this could be one of Kim's last shoots before she starts some serious baby bumpin'.
Kim said it was a dream working with Formichetti, and it was "so inspiring and interesting to see someone else's take on me" in the Elle behind-the-scenes interview with the stylist:
Kim's Elle issue hits newsstands on February 19th.
If you were a designer, would you lend clothes to Kim?
