Her tribute wasn't completely welcome, however.
The fashion world is mourning the loss of one of its major players today. Karl Lagerfeld, the celebrated fashion designer who revived Chanel in the 80s, passed away in Paris at the age of 85. Many have taken the time to express their love for the creative luminary since hearing of his death. Kim Kardashian took to social media with her own message of love in honor of the icon.
The reality television star uploaded photos of herself with the man she calls a legend. A few behind-the-scenes shots and personal photographs came with an affectionate caption. We lost a true legend!!!! You were such an inspiration to the world! You shot my first fashion shoot and I was so nervous to work with such an icon," she recalled fondly. "The world is so much chicer because you existed! I am beyond honored to have met you and had the opportunity to work with you. You are so loved and will be so missed 💔"
Unfortunately, Kim's tribute to Karl Lagerfeld was not satisfactory, according to naysayers on social media. They pointed out how she managed to include pictures that featured herself more prominently than the designer, effectively diminishing the genuine nature of her mourning. She also didn't mention his name...
