Kim Kardashian copies other stars' looks and flips through magazines for style inspiration.

The reality TV star told UK TV presenter Lorraine Kelly she was flattered to be considered a fashion icon by her fans, but admitted she looks to fellow celebrities and fashion magazines for inspiration.

"It feels so weird [to be considered a style icon], I mean I want everyone to be an individual and be themselves but it's also flattering to be inspirational to people, or for them to be inspired by a certain hairstyle or make-up look or little outfits," she said.

"Because I do that with other people, I look through magazines and I'm like, 'I like her hair here and her make-up there and I love this outfit or these shoes'. It's very flattering."

Kardashian, who has been attending the Paris haute couture shows with current boyfriend Kanye West, revealed she owns "14 Birkins" (handbags) and named her favourite designer as Celine.

She added that she couldn't live without a simple white dress from her own Sears Kardashian collection, before discussing UK fashion.

"I think [British style] it's really good and really different. Everyone is so individual, everyone has a different style. Every person I see has their own, totally individual style," she said.

"I love to mix highs and lows [designer fashion and high street clothing], I mean I think it's always a good balance to mix. I like to mix it up for sure."
