London: Hollywood icon Sophia Loren is the inspiration behind socialite Kim Kardashian's latest photo shoot for a magazine.

Kardashian, who idolises the Italian beauty, has channels Loren in a series of photos for the latest issue of US magazine Allure.

Dressed in Jenna Leigh Lingerie balconette bra, the 29-year-old strikes some iconic poses associated with Loren in the magazine, Daily Mail reported.

The Keeping Up With Kardashians star also talks about the controversies in her life admitting that she was very upset about the 2007 sex tape that was released of her with then-boyfriend Ray J.

"Not my proudest moment, it was humiliating. But now let's move on. Not that I don't think it's no one's business, but I think I've done a good job with replacing negative things with positive things," said Kardashian.

In fact, the exposure helped her launch a successful career that includes lucrative endorsements, appearances and even her own products including a soon to be released perfume.

She is well aware that her body is her fortune, and does her best to keep it perfectly preened. Kardashian says her late father Robert Kardashian inspired her business career.

"I feel lazy when I'm not working. I learned all my business sense from my dad. He always believed in me, and I think the last thing he said to me before he passed away was: 'I know you're gonna be OK. I'm not worried about you'."

The star, who has been linked to Miles Austin following her split from Reggie Bush, says her life isn't quite where she expected it to be growing up.

"I always thought, for sure, when I'm 30, I'll have four kids like my mom. It's tough but I'm totally fine on my own," she said.
