Kim Kardashian was more professional on set than real models, according to photographer Bruce Weber.
The famed lensman insists the 'Keeping up with the Kardashians' star was ''wonderful'' to work with and he chose to shoot her for the March cover issue of high fashion magazine DuJour because of her warm persona around staff on set.
Weber - who has snapped such icons as Cindy Crawford and the late Elizabeth Taylor - revealed that Kim is more favourable to work with than many other models and celebrities he has shot.
Being interviewed for 'Fashion Icons w/ Fern Mallis' on New York's prestigious 92nd Street Y, he said: ''At first I wanted to photograph her mom, Kris Jenner. She [Kim] came to the set. I always judge the person I'm going to photograph by how they are with my assistants and my crew - she looked at each one and introduced herself. She was just so personable with everyone. She was wonderful.''
Kim - who is engaged to Kanye West, with whom she has five-month-old daughter North - obviously made a stellar impression on the 67-year-old photographer who recently branded Cindy Crawford ''rude'' after revealing she is the only model he has kicked off a photo shoot when he was working for Revlon over a decade ago.
Weber recently told Huffington Post Live: ''She was so rude to the whole team and the crew.''
