    The reality TV starlet loves to post her snaps on the micro-blogging site. Kim Kardashian tweeted the snap saying: "Good morning Miami."

Kim Kardashian was refused clothes from high-end fashion houses for the latest Elle fashion shoot as they believe that “she’s not the It Girl yet,” it has been revealed.

Nicola Formichetti, the stylist behind Lady Gaga’s masterful wardrobe, confessed that calling in high-end samples for the pregnant 32-year-old reality star posed a challenge for him.

“People wouldn’t lend me the clothes. But that’s fashion snobbery,” the Daily Mail quoted Formichetti as saying.

Formichetti - creative director of Mulgar and fashion director of Uniqlo - said he approached several designers who all declined in having their clothes worn by the reality star with less-than-model-like-proportions, as Elle described her five-foot-two-inch frame.

Formichetti said that they worked with what was given to them, including several Tom ford pieces, as well as Roberto Cavaili, and Victor and Rolf, and managed to put together several looks.

On Twitter on Thursday, he backed away from the remarks, claiming that his words had been twisted.

“taken out of context again..Working with @kimkardashian was amazing we had more than enough options for @ellemagazine !!’ he wrote, adding that he was looking forward to working with the reality star again (sic),” he tweeted.
