Kim Kardashian wants to reinvent herself in Sarah Jessica Parker's image.

The reality TV star is reportedly keen to become known for something other than simply ''being famous'' and she wants to emulate the 'Sex and the City' star.

A publicist told ''Kim wants to be seen as sophisticated, as high-end fashion, not the girl who made a sex tape and is famous for being famous.

''She is trying to buy her reinvention by employing SJP's team.''

It is said Sarah finds the development ''a little creepy'' and would advise the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star to start acting lessons and work for the admiration.

The source added: ''Sarah thinks the whole thing is flattering but a little creepy.

''If Kim wants to be Sarah, her advice would be to go to acting classes. Learn a craft and become admired for the work you do, not just the way you look.''

This follows recent reports Kim hired the actress' representative Ina Treciokas - along with her stylist, hairdresser and make-up artist.

It would mark a change for the star, as it has also been claimed she is willing to give partner Kanye West more control over her career.

An insider previously said: ''Kim wants to set herself apart from the Kardashian PR machine and Kanye West advised her to build her own team.''
