Kim Kardashian, Elle Magazine

Looking fabulous is the best revenge—right, dolls?

Kim Kardashian did just that in her photo shoot with Elle's March issue. Only, according to Nicola Formichetti, the mastermind behind many of Lady Gaga's famous looks, many designers "wouldn't lend me the clothes" for Kanye West's girlfriend to wear.

"It's fashion snobbery," he said. (Note: Elitism isn't sexy and doesn't sell—Bible.) Still, even though the shoot was "a challenge" for Nicola, the results were beautiful.

Kim, 32, stunned in a Tom Ford patent leather jacket, looked timelessly beautiful in a Sister by Sibling sequined ensemble, wowed in a plunging Roberto Cavalli blazer and dazzled in more than $2500 of fine jewelry.

In a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot, Kim and Nicola expressed mutual adoration and respect for one another. "It was amazing!" Kim gushed of the experience, which Nicola described as a "dream."

And the final result clearly speaks for itself. Way to rise above the haters, Kim!
