Kim Kardashian is reportedly not a favorite among fashion designers. A stylist claims they don’t want to lend her their clothes.

According to a report from omg, stylist Nicola Formichetti says he had trouble getting designers to provide the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star with loaner outfits for a recent Elle magazine photo shoot.

Kim Kardashian - Los Angeles, CA“People wouldn’t lend me the clothes,” Formichetti says. “But that’s fashion snobbery.”

A few designers finally relented and provided some outfits. Tom Ford and Roberto Cavalli are just two of a handful who decided to play nice.

It’s clear that Kanye West’s baby mama isn’t well-liked in the fashion world, but why? She has her own clothing line and she’s one of the most high-profile women in the entire world. Is the reality show stigma what keeps them from wanting to outfit Kim Kardashian? Do they feel it lowers the class—and thus the cost—of their clothing lines?

You can see a couple of the shots that resulted from the recent Elle photo shoot by clicking on the omg link above. Kim is nothing if not stunning. Her glamorous look should tempt designers to loan out more clothing, but it likely won’t.

Did you realize this level of snobbery prevailed in the fashion world? Do you think Kim is being treated unfairly by these designers?
