While the shots include top looks from the likes of Tom Ford, Viktor & Rolf and Roberto Cavalli, Formichetti explains to ELLE that dressing Kim was a true challenge: "People wouldn't lend me the clothes. But that's fashion snobbery." Does that mean that all the high-fashion threads she sports are actually purchased? Click over to see more images and a behind-the-scenes video.
