Kim Kardashian cried after Kris Jenner stole her thunder during Karl Lagerfeld photoshoot

Kim Kardashian was upset when her mum Kris Jenner stole her thunder while she was being photographed by Karl Lagerfeld in 2013.

Following her first-ever appearance at the Met Gala in 2013, the reality TV star was approached by French fashion editor Carine Roitfeld about doing a photoshoot for her magazine CR Fashion Book, to be art-directed by Riccardo Tisci, who was then creative director of Givenchy, and photographed by Chanel's Lagerfeld.

Kim was thrilled by the opportunity as she had "never been accepted into fashion at this point" and ended up taking her mother with her to Paris for the shoot. However, she ended up regretting that decision when Kris turned up decked out in a Chanel ensemble and became instant pals with Lagerfeld.

"The two of them have this love affair like I've never seen before," she recalled to New York Magazine. "And I'm like, 'Hello?' I'm sitting here posing. I'm so uncomfortable. I'm like, 'This is so embarrassing,' and this is so annoying. I remember texting my sisters and being like, 'Guys, mom is stealing my shiiiine.' This is my first fashion shoot!'"

The 39-year-old became even more upset when the shoot was over and Lagerfeld gave a Chanel bag to Kris and not Kim, even though he traditionally gifts them to his models.

"He comes up and he's like, 'Kim, this was the best shoot. Thank you so much. But Kris, here is a bag for you,' and he gives the f**king bag to my mom. And it was a LEGO clutch. They were like $10,000, and you could never get one," Kim admitted. "So, I go into the bathroom and start crying. I was like, 'Oh my God, she fully stole my life. She stole my whole day today! This was my biggest moment ever in fashion, with Carine, Riccardo, and Karl!'"

Kim had been planning to give the bag to her daughter North, now six, so she has convinced Kris to pass it on to her one day.

"I've said to her: 'Just so we're clear, in your will, this goes to North.' I don't need it. That bag was for my daughter," she concluded.

Fashion legend Karl died at the age of 85 in February.
