Kim inspired by Valentino

Kim Kardashian says her daughter is “absolutely” more fashionable than she was as a child.

The reality star and her sisters Kourtney and Khloé are currently promoting their new Kardashian Kollection for UK high street store Lipsy. Kim drew upon some style icons for inspiration when it came designing the pieces.

"Valentino and Isabel Marant aren't really our style, but their influence is reflected in the collection," Kim told "That idea of casual comfort that people love inspired the fabrics - there's a lot of stretch. You know an Alaïa dress will hold and suck you in? I wanted to make pieces like that, pieces to make you feel really good about yourself."

The 33-year-old beauty smoulders in images for the campaign, which was shot by Terry Richardson. Kim is clearly in great shape following the birth of her daughter North in June, posing in a tight-fitting black lacy dress.

The brunette admits the negativity surrounding her pregnancy body and fashion choices was tough to handle.

"For me, having people criticise what I wore and looked like when I was pregnant - that was hard. It made me feel insecure, so I have tried to avoid the limelight more,” she confessed. “Once you start focusing on the other stuff, the fragrances and our fashion line, you stop worrying about the rest.”

Kim has been inundated with special designer outfits for North since she was born. The baby’s wardrobe already boasts items from labels such as Céline, Lanvin and Alexander Wang.

"I was just blown away by the generosity of the designers for sending me those pieces," she smiled. "Not all of the brands even make clothes for babies. This is the fun part right? Dressing her up and making her look nice. She's much more stylish than I was when I was little, absolutely."
