Kim K 'wants VB fashion tips'

Kim Kardashian is said to want to be the "most celebrated name in fashion".

The 33-year-old reality star is said to look up to the fashion designer's lifestyle and hopes to replicate it in her own way. After having landed a front cover on US Vogue magazine with her fiancé Kanye West, Kim is now apparently seeking Victoria's help to boost her name.

"All the wheels are in motion, what with her Vogue cover now in her back pocket and designers clamouring to dress her for the wedding [to Kanye]. Kim's telling everyone she'll never give up on her quest to be one of the most celebrated names in fashion," an insider told British magazine Look.

"Despite landing shoots with fashion royalty like Carine Roitfeld, she knows it's going to take time for people to stop seeing her as a tacky reality star with a sex tape. But she has a plan and plenty of people to help. She says if Victoria can get everyone to take her seriously, the same can happen to her."

Victoria began her career in music, as a member of hit girl group the Spice Girls. She unveiled her eponymous label at New York Fashion Week in 2008 and recently shared plans to move into other areas in addition to womenswear.

It is the brunette beauty's humble beginnings which are thought to inspire Kim even more.

"She wants to end up with a couture range of clothing and a mega-million dollar empire - like Victoria's - that could also expand into children's wear, homewares, intimates and cosmetics and, of course, perfume," the source added.

"At the moment she's working closely with Riccardo [Tisci], who's giving her lessons in sketching and the rules of design. She sees her first collection as simple, clean and full of neutral tones - items that are going to complement curves. People may laugh, but they laughed when Victoria first started, too. Kim's mantra is: 'If a Spice Girl can do it, so can I.'"
