Kanye's baby mama needs new duds

The reality TV star finally scored a 2-page spread in Elle, but no one wanted to risk their reputation to clothe her.

Kanye's baby mama needs new dudsElle magazine thought Kim Kardashian was enough of a fashion icon to put her in their pages this month, but that apparently doesn’t mean the world of fashion agrees.

Celebrity stylist and designer Nicola Formichetti styled Kardashian for her photo shoot, but admits he had a bit of a problem finding clothes for the shoot.

"People wouldn't lend me the clothes," Formichetti said, according to Yahoo!. "But that's fashion snobbery."

Formichetti may be best known right now for styling Lady Gaga. He did finally get some takers, including Tom Ford and Roberto Cavalli, among others.

“Like Kanye, they probs didn't want her to damage their reputation in the fashion world,” said Hilton.

But Kardashian doesn’t seem to mind the disses, because in the end, she loved how the photo shoot ended up.

"I love the way the pics turned out!!!" she said on her blog. "I love being transformed and I love, like your, vision of who you think I am. That's always so inspiring to me and so interesting to see someone else's take on me."

According to Hilton, back in 2011, creative director for Elle Joe Zee said Kardashian would never be on the cover of the magazine.

His words ring true today — Kardashian is not the cover model this time around either; Taylor Swift scored the cover of the issue.
