Nicola Formichetti knows a thing or two about styling celebrities. The mastermind behind many of Lady Gaga‘s iconic looks has dressed his fair share of women, but says he ran into unforeseen complications when he had to style Kim Kardashian for her Elle fashion shoot.
“People wouldn’t lend me the clothes,” he said of the “challenge” of finding designer outfits for Kanye West‘s baby mama to wear. “But that’s fashion snobbery.”
Fashion snobbery or no, Kardashian stuns in the Elle photos. From a Tom Ford patent leather jacket to a gorgous matching Sister by Sibling cardigan and skirt to the Roberto Cavalli beaded wool blazer and Viktor & Rolf dress she can be seen wearing to the left, Kardashian got the last laugh on all those who wouldn’t help her and Formichetti out.
