Kim Kardashian admires Sophia Loren as she taught her to flaunt her "sexy" curves.

The reality TV beauty is famed for her womanly shape, and regularly shows off her assets in a range of form-fitting outfits.

Kim credits Hollywood beauty Sophia as the ultimate style icon - as she gave her the confidence to display her voluptuous figure.

“My icon is Sophia Loren, because she was never afraid to show her curves. I think my curves are sexy. I was born like this and I have learnt to accept it," she said in an interview with Vanity Fair Italy. "My sister Kendall is the opposite, tall and super skinny. She’s a model and I respect her.”

Kim is regularly named as one of the sexiest women in the world. The raven-haired beauty is still learning to cope with the interest surrounding the way she looks.

“Sometimes I feel pressed from all that attention, but I love to keep in shape," she admitted. "The problem is that I am also greedy, so I have to work a lot in the gym."

Kim is often compared to fellow socialite Paris Hilton. Although the star can see some similarities in their upbringing, Kim insists she's very different to the heiress.

“Paris and I grew up in Beverly Hills, our mothers were friends and both did a reality TV show," she said. "But apart from that we’re very different… I don’t know, I don’t like to compare me to her… she’s blonde and I am brunette”.
