Kim Kardashian is a major celebrity and her stylist Nicola Formichetti is the creative director of ultra-high-end fashion house Mugler. You’d think these two would be able to get anything they wanted in the fashion world, but you’d be wrong!

According to, Nicola had a hard time creating the looks for Kim’s spread in the March 2013 issue of Elle magazine, because several of the designers he approached turned him down. 

“People wouldn’t lend me the clothes,” he explained. “But that’s fashion snobbery.”

But Nicola and Kim are both fashion pros, and were able to pull together some fantastic looks with what they were given, and she looked great! Take that, fashion snobs!

In a behind-the-scenes video, Kim gushed about her stylist. “I love being transformed and I love your vision of who you think I am – that’s always so inspiring for me and so interesting seeing someone’s take on me,” she said.

It’s a match made in fashion heaven.
