Is there anything Kim Kardashian can't do? From reality star to business mogul, the Hollywood A-lister has done pretty well for herself over the years - and now she can add Fashion Icon to her resumé thanks to her win at this year's People Choice Awards. Not bad for "a girl with no talent," right?

The SKIMS founder hit the stage at the Microsoft Theater for the 28th People's Choice Awards in a classic Kim outfit: bold, tight, and definitely eye-catching. She rocked a black Balenciaga look from head to toe that featured a tight dress, gloved sleeves, and a fake turtleneck. But as any true fashion icon would, Kimmy took her look to the next level with her futuristic black sunglasses and statement earrings. Pretty iconic to say the least...

As Kim's unique fashion taste developed over the years, this award seemed like a shoo-in, but even the 41-year-old celebrity couldn't believe that she was being recognized in such a special way. "I am so honored," Kardashian gushed as she stood on stage accepting her award. "I am honestly so humbled to be here, I mean, I started off as a closet organizer and a stylist so the fact that I'm winning a Fashion Icon award, it's like a pinch-me moment." While Kim took the time to thank the designers who first agreed to work with her, she had a special thank you for someone who helped her get her foot in the door in the world of haute couture.

"[Thank you] to Kanye even for introducing me to the fashion world," Kim shared as she confessed how important he was to her rise in the industry. "I fell in love with fashion and I'm so inspired by so many people," Kardashian continued. "But again, this is just a dream that I get to wake up and wear these amazing clothes and just try new things... I'm just so humbled."
