Things are afoot in our favorite “K” obsessed family’s … wardrobes. Let’s start with where we always love to start: Kim Kardashian. Kim was at BOA Steakhouse with some pals wearing that emerald green slashed up to here-and-there dress that you see above. The good news? We have color in her wardrobe again! We’re not sure Kanye West would approve because it seems like she’s been in black-and-white the whole time that they’ve been dating. And you know that’s him talking (and by that we mean, dictating) not her. The bad news? It’s velvet. And we’re not in the ’70′s. This is also reminiscent of that glorified blazer Kanye made her wear earlier this month. But, like we said, it ain’t monochrome! But the worst news? For her, we mean. The dress split a little as she was getting into her car. You’ll see the seam coming apart in the photograph in the middle, on her back. That’s when you know your clothes are too tight, Kimberly. Tut, tut.
Also making our day was Kim’s sister, Kourtney Kardashian. She was filming Kourtney And Kim Take Miami yesterday and sashayed in to film a speed boat ride in a turban. That’s right, Kourtney wore a turban. As in , Joan Collins in Dynasty. What can we say? It’s too much to handle. Let’s not even get into the fact that she was wearing those heels on a boat. And just so you know that the whole household has lost its collective marbles, Kourtney’s boyfriend Scott Disick also tagged along with filming. Only, it seems he’s trying to grow a mustache. We have a feeling he thinks they’re shooting a promo for Miami Heat reloaded or something. We’re not kidding. Look below to see our point. Shave, Scott. Seriously.
Have your eyes recovered from the cuteness explosion above? We’ll give you a minute. For those of you not keeping up with the Kardashian’s, that adorable snowball is Kim Kardashian’s new kitten, Mercy. The kitty was a gift from Kim’s boyfriend Kanye West and….just….dawwwwwwwwwww! The sex tapes, the “Perfect B-tch” thing, it’s all just a distant memory for us now. You’re the best boyfriend ever, Yeezy!
Kim has been seen out and about with the new kitten while filming Kourtney and Kim Take Miami. We’re not sure, but we’re starting to sense that this teacup persian is going to become the breakout star of the series! So we’re jumping on the Mercy bandwagon now by rounding up all of her most adorable faces and poses in one unbearably precious gallery. Seriously, we can’t even take it. If you feel yourself slipping into a cuteness coma, here’s the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” video to balance you out.
At last. We’ve been waiting our entire lives for someone to make this fashion trend happen. We should have guessed it would be Kim Kardashian who finally pulled it off. While filming for the upcoming season of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, Kardashian accessorized her white one-piece with a golden belt like she wasn’t even revolutionizing fashion as we know it (which she was). Think about it: what outfit doesn’t look better with a belt? That’s right: none of them. Plus, swimsuits are the hardest of article of clothing to wear. Isn’t it better to have the option to cinch in your waist? Oh man, someone has to tell What Not To Wear‘s Stacey and Clinton about this. This is going to change everything. For the better.
Overall, we’d say this is a way better look than the ladies’ bikini promo last week. Well, better for us normal people, we mean; Kim could wear an old box spring and still look like a statue of a Greek goddess. We’re just not sure whether to credit Kim’s new look to Kanye‘s influence or not. The golden part screams Yeezy, but girl has always known how to accentuate her teeny middle. Maybe Kanye could draw up some designs for a swim blazer? To be paired with a swim wedge and a wide-leg swim trouser? We’d all probably be dragged down into our watery graves, but wow, we sure will look good doing it!
The news that there’s a 20-minute sex tape starring Kanye West being shopped around probably shouldn’t surprise us too much, especially given Yeezy’s fondness for Kim Kardashian’s tape. Folks at Radar Online have seen the video and say it’s definitely Kanye doing the deed with a woman whose “bodacious curves, dusky skin and long black hair” make her look like Kim. The tape sounds thought-out, too: Kanye reportedly sets up the camera and the woman clearly states that she is 18. She also confuses us by saying, “My husband and I don’t have sex anymore… that’s why I’m here!” — um, she’s only 18 and already in a sexless marriage?
Anyway, what is surprising is that Kanye is reportedly in a panic about the tape getting out now. It sounds like he made it just before he and Kim hooked up, and is deeply regretting this decision. Uh-oh. We can’t even imagine how much it would cost to keep something like this quiet. According to Radar’s “expert,” Kanye’s performance “far outweighs Kim’s,” so maybe he should just let it get out there? Relax and take a tip from your girlfriend’s family, ‘Ye: When it comes to exposure, more is more.
Kourtney and Kim Kardashian have already taken New York, and now they’re more than ready to take Miami! The reality sisters have released a poolside promo video for their upcoming spinoff, set to air this coming January. The bikini filled clip is getting us all hot and bothered, in more ways than one. There’s something sort of eerie and detached about the video, which features the voluptuous Kim diving into the deep end of a pool. Metaphor alert, anyone?
Things get weirder as she slides beneath the water and hostile voices from the upcoming season surround her. Is this a homage to Dustin Hoffman’s underwater isolation in the 1967 classicThe Graduate? Is she drowning in negativity? The undertones of this simple bikini preview are surprisingly dark! Which is funny because the spinoff is set to mark the television debut of the newest Kardashian: little kitten Mercy! The sisters have been seen out and about filming for the new series while bringing the little fuzz ball along. And his cuteness is undeniable. So there you have it: crippling existential despair and kittens. It’s the Kardashian way!
We’re gonna go out on a limb here and say that -right or wrong- a lot of people just don’t like Kim Kardashian. So what’s a uber media savvy woman with a PR problem to do? What do people love more than anything? What is so blindingly adorable that it’ll totally distract from the fact that you’ve turned your very existence into a multimedia brand? The answer of course, is kittens.
Kim was spotted strolling the Miami boardwalk with little sister Khloe and an adorable white puffball of a kitty, called “Mercy.” The sisters introduced the teacup persian cat yesterday on Twitter, but it was so cute we assumed it had to be some new Pixar character. But seeing these photos, Mercy is scarily real and we are totally caught in the vortex of cuteness. Gahhhhhhhh! We’re totally out of snarky sarcastic comments, you guys! Look at it’s little tiny face! It’s big blue eyes! Damn you, Kardashians!!
If you’ve ever had any doubt that Kim Kardashian is a public relations genius, head on down to the gallery below.
Rihanna’s been pretty good about wearing pants lately, considering the fact that she spent most of 2011 totally without them. But the pop star started to slip back into her old ways this weekend as she ventured out in a tiny skirt with peep holes around her upper thighs. Great for that pants-free feeling, but without breaking any indecent exposure laws! Riri and her entourage hit up LA’s Eden nightclub last night, while her infamous ex Chris Brown reportedly partied at The Sayers Club next door. Despite the proximity, the two apparently did not meet up at any point during the night on the town.
Kim Kardashian on the other hand was all business when she stepped out on Friday to a work-related meeting in New York City. Although you wouldn’t know it based on her outfit. Leather miniskirt and a weirdly Victorian see-through top showing off a lacy bra? To a business meeting?! Is this part of Kanye’s wardrobe makeover, or are the Kardashians launching a turn-of-the-century burlesque show? Whose attention seeking skin-flash do you think is the weirdest? Let us know in the poll!
Who puts a short curvy woman in a boxy blazer and takes away her pants? What Not To Wear‘s Stacy and Clinton must be spinning in their graves. Er…in their accessory closets right now! Kim Kardashian stepped out today to visit Jacob the Jeweler in New York while wearing what appears an old blazer Kanye received as a hand-me-down from his great-granduncle. When his grand-granduncle died. On his yacht. We were so aghast when we saw it, it took us a moment to notice that Kim is awkwardly holding the blazer closed. We shudder to think which of Kim’s outfits Kanye threw away to make room for this number. We’re assuming she does too.
The only good part of Kim’s look is that it reminded us of Kanye’s verse on Nicki Minaj‘s song “Blazin,” which is what we’re going to call “Kanye making you wear a blazer dress” from now on. Our favorite part of Kim’s outfit it is how psyched Kanye seems over his sartorial selection. Look at his eyes! “Yes, my blazer looks very becoming on you. Then again, if I were on you…” and so forth. You know this is only the beginning, right? We’re going to see soooooo many Kanye outfits on Kim from now on. The man must own 1,000 pairs of baggy leather trousers alone!
It’s that time of the year again. The leaves are going to start turning soon. Wardrobes are too, to accommodate the changing seasonal trends. It’s a tricky path though, because there’s so much information out there. What we’ve done is gleaned the top 10 trends out of all the tomes of “what to wear” out there and put them on the list. More than anything, these are the 10 trends that our fashion-forward celebrities have been wearing out and about, on magazine covers, in campaigns and for various events and premieres.
2. Oversized Coats:Another massive trend this season, be certain that your coat is big enough so it looks voluminous and chic, but not big enough so that you look lost in. Make sure you’re wearing it, and it’s not wearing you. Ashley Olsen got it right on the subscriber cover of Elle UK!
3. Monochrome: This fall trend can be worn in many avatars. Celebrities like Rihanna, Chloe Sevigny and Victoria Beckham have channeled monochrome into different looks — funky, mod and classic. So can you.
4. Modern Country/ Americana: Taylor Swift‘s Vogue cover got this trend spot on. Oversized hats, chunky knits, tweeds have been revived into modern silhouettes. It’s the new nostalgia. Think lots of Rodarte!
The Marchesa show was always going to be a big draw since it’s such a celebrity favourite. We were hoping for a couple more A-Listers, but hey, Fashion Week’s such a packed schedule that this lot is just fine. Kanye West, check. Kim Kardashian, looking strangely like Big Bird, check! Tyra Banks … check. But hold up. That smizing is really beginning to freak us out. Like … this is something right out of The Exorcist now. That — and her hair. What can we say about her hair? We can’t. We’ll just let you gaze in wonder at the photograph below.
Yeah. That. It is unreal. It goes beyond volume. And it’s as if she’s smizing right at us! How much more perfect could it get? Others present at the show were a ladylike Stacy Keibler, a very excited Sarah Hyland, a casual chic Rachel Roy, a retro-looking Jenna Dewan and Michelle Trachtenberg who looked like her Gossip Girl character, Georgina Sparks in sunglasses. Check them all out in the gallery below. Werk!
