When Disney star Demi Lovato revealed to PEOPLE over the weekend that Kim Kardashian was her fashion icon, both for her curves and confidence, she may not have known that the feeling was mutual. But after reading Demi’s praise for her style — the young singer-actress gushed that “I just love the way that she dresses” — Kim was so moved that she promptly took to her blog to express her gratitude. “I love that Demi is embracing her curves and I’m so flattered that she is looking to me for style inspiration” writes Kim. “Demi is one of the few young stars who manages to show off her own unique style and sense of self while still keeping her looks age-appropriate,” says Kim. “I know for me it was a long journey to get to where I am today, and if I can help just one girl feel happy and confident in her own skin by showing that girls should not aspire to be, nor should they feel pressured to be skinny, then I’ve made a little bit of a difference.” To hear more of what Kim has to say, check out Tell us: Who is your style icon? –Gillian Koenig
