Kim Kardashian cemented her status as one of the world’s foremost fashionistas when she revealed Vogue contributing editor André Leon Talley is now in her video game.

The reality star has achieved huge success with her Kim Kardashian: Hollywood! game.

In the game, Kim appears with her mother, Kris Jenner, and sisters Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian and Kylie and Kendall Jenner.

But as the popularity of the game grows, Kim has decided to include other people in her life.

Now former Vogue editor and current contributing editor André makes an appearance.

Kim announced his arrival with a post on her Twitter page on Tuesday which read: “I'm so excited to announce @OfficialALT in my game! Step your fashion game up, he's watching!!!! #KimKardashianGame.”

André has long been a friend of the Kardashian family, and even attended Kim’s wedding to Kanye West in May 2014.

Speaking about the nuptials, André said during an interview on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live that he was somewhat surprised by the length of the newlyweds’ first kiss.

"It was extremely long," he said, "which is always a good sign. I would say there was probably tongue engagement."

However, despite making an appearance at the ceremony, André’s face was blurred out in the wedding episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians for reasons unknown.

Kim has so far earned an incredible $50 million from the game.

While the game itself is free, players are invited to use real money to buy virtual money to purchase digital accessories. A virtual amount of $5,000 costs $4.99. And accessories in the game include high heels which cost around $4,000 in virtual Kim K cash.

According to the game’s blurb, the aim is to “create your own aspiring celebrity and rise to fame and fortune”.

The virtual Kim is on hand throughout the game giving players advice on how to achieve the A-list status.
