Designers don’t want Kim Kardashian wearing their creationsFashion designers don’t think much of Kim Kardashian and don’t want her wearing their creations. It happened at an ELLE photo shoot, when stylist Nicola Formichetti had trouble convincing a number of fashion houses to lend the clothes to the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star.

ELLE magazine reveals a new side of Kim Kardashian, a more sophisticated one. The reality show star was styled up by Nicola Formichetti, and photographed by Miguel Reveriego.

Formichetti, who is also Lady Gaga’s stylist, admits that dressing up Kim Kardashian was “a challenge”. Not because of the future mother’s maternity curves, but because many big names in the fashion industries didn’t even want to hear about lending their creations to Kim. “People wouldn’t lend me the clothes”, Formichetti told ELLE. “But that’s fashion snobbery”, he added.

In the end, some fashion designers have apparently given in. Kim kardashian’s pictures featured creations by Tom Ford, Roberto Cavalli, Viktor & Rolf, Giuseppe Zanotti and a few others.

Kim was beyond happy with how the pictures turned out. “I love the way the pics turned out”, she wrote on her Celebuzz blob. “Such an honor to work with such incredible and talented stylists and photographers. What do you think of the pics?”
