Kim Kardashian has been seen wearing
Kim Kardashian seen on Feb 28 2013 in Beverly Hills, CA. Kim Kardashian looked to be all-business as she headed into a business meeting in Beverly Hills on February 28, while keeping her outfit fairly neutral and casual. Starting with a pair of white skinny jeans (for a great basic straight leg pair, check out James Jeans' Hunter in Neo White Pearl), Kim then added on a white lace camisole (for a similar option, take a peek at 4 Love and Liberty's Short Slip with Lace in White) under a tan cardigan. For something that resembles Kim's sweater, check out Gold Hawk's Braided Sweater in Desert Sand. An armful of bling, a white envelope clutch (like Julie K Handbags' Sasha White Boa), and a pair of bordeaux Loubs provided the finishing touches to Kim's ensemble. Are you into it on this occasion, everyone? In other KK news, Reality Tea recently dished on Kim's recent appearance fees, saying that's she's made over $900,000 in the past few weeks alone! Woah!! According to the gossip site, Kim made: "$153,000 for a Las Vegas New Year's Eve party appearance, $200,000 for an appearance at the Life Star Night Club on the Ivory Coast, $50,000 to attend the Topshop store opening in West Hollywood, and $500,000 to attend a party in Nigeria for 45 minutes and speak for under 1 minute." Must be nice!
Kim Kardashian seen on Feb 21 2013 in Beverly Hills, CA. A very pregnant Kim Kardashian was photographed leaving a private residence in Beverly Hills on February 21, donning a bold black and white number as she made her way to a waiting car. Kim's sleek and chic look consisted of a two-tone sheath dress, along with white pumps, a black clutch and matching black cuff. A slicked back hairstyle and bright red lip provided the beauty touches to Kim's daytime look. For a selection of bold black and white frocks here on CoutureCandy, check out one of the following options: Kay Unger New York's Strapless Peplum Dress in White/Black, Charlotte Tarantola's Metro in Black, or Alexia Admor's Two Tone Flower Dress in Ivory/Black. An oversized black cuff, like Satya Jewelry's Moon Bracelet in Eclipse, should do the trick when it comes to accessories. What's your take on KK's outfit here, everyone - does it suit her pregnancy style? In other Kardashian news, Kim recently blogged about what the future holds for her, in addition to clearing up the rumors that she is leaving her hit reality show "Keeping Up With The Kardashians." Kim penned: "As everyone knows, we are extremely proud of the show and all of us are staying on through at least season 10. The show remains to be my number 1 priority and itís a big part of my life and I enjoy every moment of it. Iím looking forward to the new season and beyond. The fact is that I have many goals that I still need to reach and accomplish and I (like so many of you) donít know where my life will be in the next couple of years, but Iím looking forward to continuing this journey." Thoughts, everyone?
Kim Kardashian seen on Feb 15 2013 in Los Angeles, CA. Kim Kardashian was spotted heading thru LAX to board a flight to Nigeria on February 15, after celebrating Valentine's Day with her boo Kanye West at Lawry's The Prime Rib in Beverly Hills the night before. When it came to her airport style, the pregnant reality star sported a pair of black leggings (like Hale Bob's Legging in All Black) tucked into a pair of boots, and then topped her look off with a flowy grey blouse and a black Balenciaga bag. To get a similar top to Kim's here, check out an option from Joie, such as the Modine in Caviar or the Peterson B Top in Navy. If you're interested in going with a bolder pattern in a similar silhouette, check out Harper's Estelle Top in Zig Zag. What are your thoughts on Kim's airport style here, friends? In other Kardashian news, Kim recently had a chat with ELLE about how she prefers to travel solo and sans entourage. Says KK: "I travel alone. I don't have an entourage and I'm sick of my family right now and they're my only entourage! I like to vibe out by ourselves and sometimes when you have lots of other people there, it gets in the way." Funny, because Kim's friend and makeup artist Joyce Bonelli was seen next to Kim in these photos from the airport...
Kim Kardashian seen on Jan 04 2013 in Calgary, Canada. Kim Kardashian was photographed on the red carpet of the ICED Festival at Cowboys Dance Hall in Calgary, Canada on January 4, sporting a sheer blouse and high waisted skirt that accentuated her growing baby bump. To emulate KK's style on this occasion, try pairing a sheer top (like Boulee's Jamie in Black Chiffon) with a black blazer (try BB Dakota's CDC Blazer in Black), and then rock a high waisted black pencil skirt, like Tag Jeans' Bancroft High Rise Pencil Skinny in Black. From there, add on a pair of strappy black sandals and some pretty studs (Lafonn's Classic Round Studs with Bezeled Accents look like diamonds, but are a fraction of the price) to polish off your 'fit. What are your thoughts on Kim K.'s outfit here... too much exposure, or typical Kim? In other news, Kim recently took to her official blog to share with the world that she has employed celebrity fitness trainer Tracy Anderson. Writes KK: "Tracy Anderson is keeping me in shape! She is helping me make the adjustments necessary to keep me feeling happy, healthy and most importantly create a workout plan that is safe for the baby. Itís really important for me to have a fitness routine that works for my body and my schedule and Iím really happy with the workout plan Tracy is working with me on." I know that most of the time, celebrities are pretty private about what trainers they work with... but leave it to Kim to share pretty much every detail of her life with the public!
Kim Kardashian seen on Oct 15 2012 in Miami, FL. Kim Kardashian was caught by the paparazzi as she made a coffee run at Cuban Coffee in Miami, FL on October 15, keeping her ensemble casual yet chic at the same time. Pairing Kardashian Kollection faux leather leggings (try Work Custom Jeans' Mamba Leggera Faux Leather Leggings in Neo Black) with a Wetherly tank (for two similar options, check out either Gold Hawk's Double Layer Tank in Putty or Michael Stars' Boyfriend Tank in Heather Grey), Kim then slipped into a pair of black and gold Tom Ford heels (for a similar silhouette with a brown and silver - the exact opposite! - color scheme, peep Jeffrey Campbell's Dressen in Light Brown Pewter). Oversized black cuffs and a black ring on her left hand completed KK's outfit. What are your thoughts on Kim's street style on this occasion, everyone? In other Kim news, it seems as though things may be getting pretty serious with her boo Kanye West. According to the NY Daily News, Ryan Seacrest may have spilled the beans about their upcoming engagement. Says the source: "The ďAmerican IdolĒ host hinted at the potential engagement while discussing rumors that Kardashian is ďdemandingĒ a ring from Kanye for her 32nd birthday this Sunday. If anyone would know about the engagement, it would be Seacrest ó heís an executive producer of Kimís show ďKeeping Up with the KardashiansĒ and, as a result, tends to have the scoop on all the intimate details of the famous family." On his radio show, Seacrest said: "I think we could definitely see an update on this story on Monday." Interesting! Another insider recently dished to Radar Online, saying: "It's only a matter of time before Kanye pops the question. They are madly in love with each other and Kanye wants to spend the rest of his life with Kim. It's just a case of making sure the ring is perfect because she's his princess." Only time will tell!
Kim Kardashian seen on Sep 14 2012 in New York, NY. Kim Kardashian was spotted rocking a sheer and sexy ensemble as she headed into her NYC hotel on September 14, just before tweeting how much she loves her "black Kardashian Kollection clutch." Besides the aforementioned clutch (for a more unique silhouette, check out Zambos & Siega's Audrey Clutch in Black), Kim paired a sheer black blouse (Free People's Georgette Sheer Top in Black is very, very similar, while Zoe's Flap Pocket Shirt in Black is another option if you like the polka dot detailing on the sleeves of Kim's blouse) with a high waisted black leather pencil skirt (for a cool denim option, try Tag Jeans' Bancroft High Rise Pencil Skirt in Black) and strappy black heels. A sleek pony tail and minimal makeup (for Kim) completed her look. Is this look a winner or a loser for KK in your mind? While there have been numerous rumors that have spread recently that Beyonce and Kim have been feuding, it turns out that this couldn't be further from the truth. It all started when Bey allegedly told Kim to stop posing for photos at a recent Jay-Z and Kanye West concert, because she was stealing the limelight away from Jay. However, a source close to Beyonce's camp told TMZ that in fact "both ladies watched their men together backstage, laughing and hugging the whole time. They love each other - they talk fashion, family, Beyonce's baby all the time." It may seem like an unlikely pairing, but there you have it!
Kim Kardashian seen on Sep 06 2012 in New York, NY. Kim Kardashian was spotted out and about in NYC on September 6, running a few errands before her big Fashion's Night Out appearance (where she was signing bottled of her new perfume, True Reflection) at Lord & Taylor. For her daytime outfit, Kim paired a white Celine sweater dress (for a similar sweater dress option with sleeves, try Michael Lauren's Sweater Dress in Ice, or for a more casual and lightweight dress with a similar silhouette, check out Shin Choi's Alexis Dress in White) with dramatic Givenchy boots and a Celine tote. Accessory wise, Kim chose a pair of aviator sunglasses (check out Ray-Ban's Cockpit Sunglasses in Gunmetal) and chunky gold cuff (try Jessica Elliot's Open Clover Cuff in Vermeil) to complete her look. What are your thoughts, everyone - is this ensemble better than Kim's most recent outing? As I mentioned earlier, Kim made an appearance at Lord & Taylor to promote her new fragrance, which she tweeted about earlier: "ant wait to launch my new perfume True Reflection tonight at Lord & Taylor! $2 of every bottle sold goes to Dress For Success charity!" Love the charity component - great job, KK!
Kim Kardashian seen on Aug 17 2012 in Honolulu, Hawaii. Kim Kardashian was photographed picking up Yogurtland with her beau Kanye West in Honolulu, Hawaii on August 17, and I have to say... Kim looks quite fancy for a froyo stop! Wearing a grey pencil skirt with stripe detailing down the side (for a similar skirt that's a bit shorter, try Stretta's Sadie Skirt in Heather Grey, or for a darker option with a similar silhouette, check out Three Dots' Stripe Skirt in Nir), Kim added on a black silk camisole (for a similar sexy, silky option, take a look at 4 Love and Liberty's Lace Slip in Black) and then slipped into her favorite Kanye West x Giuseppe Zanotti white heels. Jewelry wise, Kim wore Emerson Ryder's beautiful and delicate diamond Bella Bar Necklace, and then added on a two finger ring (try Soho Collection's Leaf 2 Finger Ring in Silver). On a beauty note, barely there makeup and a sleep top knot provided the finishing touches to Kim's Hawaiian ensemble. Like Kim's most recent look, I don't quite understand why she's not embracing the tropical atmosphere of the islands and dressing a little more summery? If you wouldn't have told me that Kim was in Hawaii, I most certainly would have never guessed. What are your thoughts, readers? Weigh in! While Kim seems to be pretty happy with Kanye, it is being reported that her divorce proceeding with Kris Humphries is getting nastier. According to ABC News: "Lawyers for the two sides faced off in court Wednesday. Humphries' lawyer complained that Kardashian's team hasn't been exactly helpful, delaying the discovery process. 'I don't want to use the word uncooperative, but they are not making the process easier," Marshall Waller told the judge, according to E!, adding that he needs at least four months to get ready for trial. 'To say I am frustrated is an understatement,' Laura Wasser told the judge, according to E! 'I'm at a loss to figure out what the holdup is. They had a prenup and were married 72 days. To what end does he want this annulment?'" So much drama for such a brief marriage!
Kim Kardashian seen on Aug 13 2012 in Hawaii. Kim Kardashian was photographed grabbing frozen yogurt with her beau Kanye West while on the island of Hawaii earlier today, August 13, and based on her outfit I would more likely guess that Kim was in NYC instead of Hawaii! Not quite the tropical look I had in mind when I found out KK was in Hawaii. Keeping her look simple with only a knee-length black dress, Kim accessorized with a pair of strappy gold heels and her favorite black Hermes Birkin bag. For three great LBD options here on CoutureCandy that are similar to Kim's, check out Kay Unger's Cap Sleeve Dress in Black, Gold Hawk's Asymmetrical Pleated Dress in Phantom Black, and Shin Choi's Long Kelly Dress in Black. Do you think that Kim should have added on some jewelry, such as Satya Jewelry's Conviction Bracelet in Amethyst, to this look - or do you enjoy how she kept this outfit bling free? Weigh in with your thoughts on this ensemble in the comments section! In other Kardashian news, Kim's cover of New York Magazine's Fall Fashion Issue was recently revealed, with the headline reading "Does Kim Kardashian belong on the cover of a fashion magazine?" Blog Zap2It argues: "Yet there she is on the cover of a fashion magazine, so one would presume that at least the editors' answer is yes. She is, after all, co-owner of Dash boutiques with her sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian Odom, has Sears and QVC clothing lines and nail polish line Kardashian Kolors, and is co-founder of Shoedazzle. So she feasibly has some fashion cred." The author of Kim's article in the magazine writes, "She'll delegate the day's choice of lip gloss to the hive mind, and crowd-source suggestions from her 'loyal blog dolls' for the first dance song at her wedding. She asked her Twitter followers to say what they wanted from her first perfume, which ended up including honeysuckle and tonka beans... Kim may be the world's first human avatar in a massively multiplayer online role-playing game." What do you think, readers - DOES Kim Kardashian belong on the cover of a fashion magazine?
Kim Kardashian seen on Apr 30 2012 in New York, NY. Kim and Kourtney Kardashian were photographed on the red carpet of the E! Network 2012 Upfronts that were held at Gotham Hall in NYC on April 30, rocking two distinct looks. Starting with Kourtney, the pregnant reality star opted for a black dress with sheer sleeves and a ruffle hem (for a great flowy black dress, check out Joie's Rathana in Caviar, or for one with similar sheer detailing, check out Nicole Miller's Black Sheath Dress), and then chose standout neon accessories such as a bright yellow necklace and neon pink heels. A woven black clutch completed her look. Moving on to Kim, she wore an Alaia printed dress (Karen ZAMBOS' Frankie Dress in Butterfly is similar) paired with black cutout Jimmy Choo heels and silver Celine cuffs (for a chic silver cuff, take a look at Jessica Elliot's Open Clover Cuff in Sterling Silver). The same woven black clutch as Kourtney - does it seem weird that both girls carried the exact same clutch to you? - finished off her look. Which sister looks best here in your opinion, everyone? I am a big fan of the neon trend for spring, especially when contrasted with black, so Kourtney gets my vote here. Kourtney recently spoke out about how her second pregnancy (she's having a girl this time) has made her claustrophobic, saying: "I have been claustrophobic just recently in my third trimester of my pregnancy. [At LAX earlier this month], I had a small panic attack in customs when they stopped everyone in a tunnel. Looking behind me all I could see was people and in front of me tons of people and I couldn't even tell where the tunnel ended. I had to just run to the front of the line, because I literally couldn't breathe. It's a horrible feeling and I'm hoping that it goes away after my pregnancy. I hate that feeling of being trapped with no control." Have any of you experienced this scary feeling while pregnant, readers?
Kim Kardashian seen on Mar 25 2012 in Los Angeles, CA. Photographed stepping out for a morning at church with her mother Kris on March 25, Kim Kardashian decided on wearing a bright, color blocked look for Sunday Mass. Starting with a neon pink blazer, Kim then tucked a white button up blouse (like Gold Hawk's Short Sleeve V Neck Shirt in Gardenia) into a pair of muted tangerine colored jeans (for a similar pastel look, go with Current/Elliot's Stiletto in Rosewood, or if you're looking for a pair with a bigger punch of color, try Level 99's Janice Ultra Skinny in Tangerine) and then wore a pair of nude platforms. A gold watch and a few gold bangles (like Calico Juno Designs' Bracelet 28 in Gold) completed her look. What do you think about KK's outfit here - yay or nay? In other Kim news, drama from the now-infamous flour bombing incident from last week continues to emerge. In case you hadn't heard, a PETA activist (despite the organization denying any involvement, it has come out that the person involved is in fact a member of PETA) flour bombed Kim on the red carpet of an event for her constant wearing of fur. It caused quite the scandal, especially due to the fact that there were rumors that the whole thing was a publicity stunt crafted by none other than Kris Jenner. At the time, Kim said she wasn't going to press charges against the animal activist, however according to TMZ, "Kim didn't press charges that night because she didn't want to take herself away from the event, which was for charity." In a change of heart, Kim says: "I said earlier no I wasn't [going to file a complaint]. I am just going to think about it, because I don't want someone to think they can really get away with that. Now that I think about it and had some time to digest it. I think, 'What if that was some other substance? What if that person had a dangerous weapon?' It's scary. And what's even scarier is this woman acted as if she was a part of the press. She just came out of nowhere! And so we are definitely changing things up a little bit, amping up security, taking some measures, and... I'm gonna definitely deal with it because it is not acceptable." What do you think - should Kim press charges or not?
Kim Kardashian seen on Jan 23 2012 in New York, NY. Photographed leaving her co-hosting gig on "Live! with Kelly" in NYC on January 23, Kim Kardashian looked red hot in a fiery lace dress and nude platforms. While her long sleeve lace number is totally curve hugging, both Aaron Ashe's Bryant Park Long Sleeve Dress in Dark Red and Kimberly Taylor's Rosemary Dress in Red are more relaxed (and forgiving!) options. From there, Kim accessorized with a bling-bling cross necklace (check out Queen Baby by King Baby Studio's Large Stud Earrings in White Gold), and then let her supersized eyelashes do the rest of the talking. Thoughts on KK's ensemble here, friends? While on "Live! with Kelly," Kim spoke openly about her highly controversial divorce from Kris Humphries. Says Kim: "Being a hopeless romantic, I wanted to believe in something so badly. If you really think about it, if this was a business decision and I really made all that money that everyone was claiming that we made off this wedding, and if the wedding was fake and just for TV - Iím a smart business woman - I would have stayed married longer. I really didn't think following my heart would create this much backlash." That's an interesting way to look at it!
Kim Kardashian seen on Oct 24 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. Back in LA after a whirlwind trip to NYC and Las Vegas, Kim Kardashian was photographed heading into MTV Studios earlier today, October 24, and didn't seem to thrilled to spot the lingering paparazzi. I just have to put this out there... is Kim makeup free? It appears so, but I'd love your feedback just to confirm. Perhaps that's the reason why she's not hamming it up for the cameras as per usual! For her errands ensemble, Kim chose a pair of leather leggings (take your pick between Halston Heritage's Legging in Black and Work Custom Jeans' Mamba Leggera Faux Leather in Neo Black) and a cowl neck top (try Catherine Malandrino's Cowlneck Dolman Sleeve Top in Black), and then topped her look off with a unique blazer with contrasting panels (for something similar, try Laugh, Cry, Repeat's Cropped Sleeve Blazer in Grey) and one of her many enviable Hermes Birkin bags. A pair of huge aviators and Christian Louboutin's Daffodil pumps polished off KK's look. While many of you might be surprised that Kim's fifteen minutes haven't passed yet, you might have to hold on to something when I announce today's news: Kim was cast in a supporting role in Tyler Perry's upcoming film The Marriage Counselor. According to Entertainment Weekly, "The film is about a married marriage counselor who strays outside the confines of holy matrimony; Kardashian will play a co-worker of said counselor." I wonder how Kim will translate onto the big screen, in a role other than a glorified "reality" performance in Disaster Movie, her other foray into cinema. Anyone interested in checking it out?
Kim Kardashian seen on Jul 13 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. Kim Kardashian was papped heading out of LAX on July 13 with a male friend, opting for a bold color combination for her outgoing flight. Kim started with a pair of distressed JET by John Eshaya jeans (for something similar, try Work Custom Jeans' Twiggy in Light Riviera), and then wore a basic white tank (try Alexis' Racerback Tank in White) under a vibrant cardigan. For something with the same punch, check out Free People's Willow Breeze Top in Cherry. Kim then wore a circular pair of sunnies paired with woven Louboutin booties and carried a neon yellow Birkin. I wonder how many Birkins this makes for KK now? For a pair of booties that would definitely be Kim-approved, and reflect the neon yellow color scheme, check out Michael Kors' Python Peep Toe Bootie in Yellow. What are your thoughts on this look, everyone? I'm interested to see if you like the way Kim mixed colors here, or if you think it's OTT. In other Kim news, it seems that the popular reality starlet has set a date for her upcoming wedding. According to a Kardashian insider: "The date that close friends of the family are being given is in August. They are looking at private estates in Los Angeles, since location will make it much easier for guest flying in to attend. The last Kardashian wedding was insane. This time Momma Kris wants time to plan and prepare and make sure the entire family has time to enjoy getting ready for the big day. Kris deserves this moment... and she fully intends to make sure every detail is just perfect." Of course, the whole spectacle is going to be filmed for a 2-hour special on E!. And why wouldn't it be? This is the Kardashians we're talking about! A private moment? Pshhh!
Kim Kardashian seen on Feb 17 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. Kim Kardashian was photographed heading through LAX on February 17, in a look that is casual on the top and fierce on the bottom. Kim started with a neutral blazer (like Joie's Finley Jacket in Black/White) that she paired with a luxe silk tank (try Gold Hawk's Rain Stud Tunic in Dusty Grey, which is 100% silk) and matching scarf (get a pop of color with Free People's Forest Scarf in Multi Charcoal), and then slipped into JET's Hippie Faded Jeans (get the distressed look with Denim of Virtue's Ankle Skimmer with Studs in Rockstar). From there, Kim added on a pair of oversized aviator sunglasses and a ferocious pair of Burberry buckled boots. A bit too much for a stroll through the airport, or do you think Kim pulls the boots off here, readers? If you are a fan of Kim, you might be pleased to find out that 2010 was a red letter year for the famous reality star. According to Time Magazine, the Kardashians racked in $65 million last year! According to the magazine, "Kris Jenner explains how the family earned $65 million in the past year. She's the mother, and now manager of the Kardashian empire, which stretches from their infamous reality TV shows and books to Kim's eponymous fragrance, and now a new "celebrity destination" store at the Mirage in Las Vegas. Due to be opened this year, Kardashian Khaos, will contain every Kardashian product you could hope for, like bikinis, towels ("So you would be laying on a Kardashian at the pool") and Kardashian-branded water. Also new for 2011 is the Kardashian lifestyle collection, which goes on sale at Sears in the summer. This deal was one of the most lucrative for the family, right up there with their QuickTrim diet supplements and Kim's perfume. This new line is added to their skin care and clothing lines, liquor, lipstick and their three 'Dash' clothing stores." Thoughts, everyone?
Kim Kardashian seen on Dec 31 2010 in Las Vegas, NV. Not wanting to miss out on the New Year's Eve festivities, Kim Kardashian was photographed hosting a big bash at Tao Nightclub inside The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas on December 31. Not that Kim needs an excuse to wear a sequined mini dress, but of course, KK decided to glitz it up for the evening. Rocking a one shouldered, curve hugging number, Kim accessorized with a pair of nude platforms with sequined toes and a pair of oversized chandelier earrings (go for something similar with Anna Beck's Sulawesi Silver Chandelier Earrings). Just because New Year's Eve is a thing of the past and we've headed into a new decade doesn't mean you have to hang up your sequined dresses until next NYE! CoutureCandy has a great selecting of glamorously glittering frocks, such as Walter's Matte Sequin Dress in Gold, Chaudry's Sequin Dress in Silver, or Sue Wong's appropriately named Vegas Cocktail Dress. Thoughts on KK's NYE ensemble here, everyone? While it's super predictable, you can't help but notice how the dress fits Kim to perfection. Just a day before her NYE hosting gig, Kim was spotted out and about with cornrow braids, which we later have come to find out were for her new music video. Kim tweeted: "Rockin' my Bo Derek braids!" - what are your thoughts of this look on K? Check out her twitpic here. Personally, I'm not a fan, but then again - they were only temporary!
Kim Kardashian seen on Dec 26 2010 in Beverly Hills, CA. Spotted doing some post-Christmas shopping at Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Barneys New York, and Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills on December 26, Kim Kardashian smiled for the paparazzi as she made her way out of the stores carrying various shopping bags and boxes. For her retail therapy ensemble, Kim started with a pair of BCBG leather leggings (opt for an exotic look with Shirimiri's Snake Print Legging in Black) and then wore a white button up with pockets (like 7 For All Mankind's Military Shirt in Milk) under an Alexander Wang mesh black sweater (if you're into sheer layers, try Wit.'s Light Weight Boyfriend Cardi in Black). From there, KK toted her enviable black Hermes Birkin bag and slipped into a pair of black booties. If you're into the whole mesh feel of Kim's look, take a peek at Rock & Republic's Ginny Crystal Mesh Bootie in Black. Thoughts on this ensemble, readers? Do I dare say that this is refined, for Kim? In other Kardashian news, it seems that Kim was over the moon that one of Mason's first words was "Kim"! She tweeted: "Best Christmas gift ever! Mason said KIM! Kourtney told me, I didnít believe her then he said it to me! I almost cried! Mama, dada & KIM! LOL." So cute! Also, when it comes to magazine sales, it seems like the Kardashian family has this down in spades. According to Women's Wear Daily: "Kim Kardashian and her sisters have become the gift that keeps on giving for celebrity weeklies such as In Touch, Life & Style and Us Weekly. During the past year, they have provided a fairly accurate barometer of the familyís popularity, and the constant coverage isnít likely to slow down anytime soon. Kardashian has proven selling power with weeklies, and it appears that sheís also been embraced by the monthly readers. According to Rapid Report (through November), Shape had its best-selling issue of the year in June on newsstands, with Kardashian on the cover. The reality star appeared on Allureís September cover, which marked its third most popular seller of the year, and most recently, W made a splash by featuring her naked on its November art issue. Wís Kardashian buzz led to its second highest seller of the year (tied with Megan Fox in March)." Interesting!
Kim Kardashian seen on Oct 29 2010 in New York, NY. Stepping out for an afternoon in NYC, Kim Kardashian was photographed while filming for her upcoming show "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" in the Big Apple on October 29. For her outfit, Kim started with a knit sweater (like Qi New York's Star Dust Handknit Sweater in Arctic White) and a fur vest (no word on whether or not it's faux - what do you think, readers? - but for a similar faux option, try Twisted Heart's Victoria Vest in Blonde), and paired with a chocolate colored Hermes Birkin bag with gold hardware and a pair of motorcycle style light wash skinny jeans (try Artisan de Luxe's Rider in Snow Blue, or for a more bleached-out look, check out Work Custom Jeans' Moto Zip in Acid Rain). Kim completed her ensemble with an oversized hat and a pair of blush YSL platforms. What are your thoughts on Kim's look here, everyone - glamorous and fun, or ridiculous and over the top? In case you haven't heard, it seems that Kim's worldwide takeover is going to include the music industry, as the socialite slash businesswoman is allegedly working on an album. Wait - since when was Kim interested in becoming a rock star? Reports claim that KK is currently in the studio laying down tracks for her debut album, alongside powerhouse writer/producer/performer The Dream. Yes, this is the man responsible for Rihanna's "Umbrella" and Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" - I wonder if he can work the same magic for Kim's debut single? It seems that one source is confident in both Kim's talent and The Dream's musical ability, as an in-studio was quoted by TMZ as saying: "Kim's got a really good voice." I wonder what Kim's music is going to sound like - anyone interested and/or believe that she actually has musical ability?
Kim Kardashian seen on Oct 16 2010 in New York, NY. Reality starlet Kim Kardashian celebrated her 30th birthday at Tao in New York on October 16, partying with many of her friends including hip hop songstress Ciara. Kim's had multiple birthday celebrations this year, in addition to fetes in LA and Las Vegas. For her NYC birthday party, Kim wore an interesting white dress and there's just a lot going on here. The dress features strong shoulders, cut outs, lace and embroidery... eesh! I'm not sure how I feel about this - it almost seems like four dresses in one. For similar dresses here on CoutureCandy (that are simplified variations on Kim's frock), check out Ella Moss' Majesty Dress in Nude, Jenny Han's Mutton Sweater Dress in Taupe, and Sue Wong's Strapless Feather Dress in Platinum. From there, Kim wore a pair of pointed toe Louboutin heels (get the look at a fraction of the price with Coye Nokes' Jacqueline Pump in Taupe Patent) and swept her hair into a sophisticated updo. What are your thoughts of KK's look here... do you love it or hate it? Kim recently spoke out about turning the big 3-0, and said: "I have mixed feelings. Sometimes I'm like, 'Oh my god, I'm turning 30,' and I'm freaking out. Like, it sounds so old. And then the other half of me is like, I feel so accomplished and it's really no different than 29." Sounds pretty normal to be feeling that way, wouldn't you say?
Kim Kardashian seen on Sep 24 2010 in West Hollywood, CA. Always one for a stylish night on the town, Kim Kardashian was photographed leaving the ever-popular restaurant Nobu in West Hollywood on September 24, taking time to wave for the paparazzi. For her ensemble, Kim donned a curve-hugging Herve Leger dress that she paired with leopard print peeptoe heels. For a few standout dresses here on CoutureCandy, check out Walter's Front Cut Out Dress in Grey or Gold Hawk's Beaded Cowl Neck Dress in Grey, and pair with Coye Nokes' gorgeous Joan Bootie in Sabbia Embossed Python. While Kim decided to go surprisingly jewelry free, maybe add on a pretty necklace (like Amrita Singh's Eva Necklace in Gold/Gunmetal) to finish off your look. How are you feeling about Kim's look here - fabulous or a bit stale? In other Kim news, she says that she is "happily single" for the moment. She says, "I feel like I don't need a man, but I'm also such a hopeless romantic. I really think that having someone makes everything more entertaining. I don't think you need a guy to make you happy but it's nice to have one." Kim continues, "I'm happily single and having fun. But I think everybody can make time for someone they really like. I'm dating or I'm trying to. I just want to keep it a bit quieter and move private than previous relationships.I would just take falling in love a bit slower these days. And I've got so much more going on, being single means I can concentrate more on myself." What are your thoughts on Kim's current romance philosophy?
Kim Kardashian seen on Aug 25 2010 in Beverly Hills, CA. Before heading over to The London Hotel in West Hollywood to attend the LA Confidential Magazine Emmy Kick-Off Celebration event, Kim Kardashian dined at one of her favorite restaurants, Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills, on August 25. This was a pretty important event for Kim, as she's on the cover of the latest issue of LA Confidential Magazine, along with her two sisters. For her event ensemble, KK chose a Hannah Marshall mini dress that has a leather top and cream corduroy skirt. To accent her curves, Kim wore a clear Gianfranco Ferre, and finished things off with Loren jewels and Christian Louboutin metallic stilettos. To get a more casual look inspired by Kim's style, try tucking Quiksilver's Underground Tank in Glow into Walter's Patchwork Striped Skirt in Gold, along with an oversized belt (like Motif 56's Elise Patent Belt in White) and big gold drop earrings (Anna Beck's Wide Gold Plated Drop Earrings are similar to Kim's. Thoughts on Kim's look here, everyone - are you a fan? I'm not sure whether or not you all have heard Kim's most recent comments about Justin Bieber, but Kim said that she would she would "date" Justin if he was a few years older. Obviously, people reacted quite strongly to this, which made Kim respond: "I was joking! It's like, 'Come on, people', I would never seriously date a 16-year-old, an 18-year-old, a 20-year-old. It's all in fun. I like 'em young but even if he was legal, that's still too young for me!" Even if Justin was a little older, do you see him with Kim?
Kim Kardashian seen on Jul 16 2010 in Miami, FL. Kim Kardashian was spotted out in typical Kim style as she made her way through the Miami Airport with sisters Khloe and Kourtney on July 16... do you think Kim's style is getting way too predictable? It seems like she has a pretty solid recipe when it comes to street style: a blazer, a tank, and skinny jeans or leggings with heels. This look is pretty much the same as the most recent one we featured on CoutureCandy, when Kim stepped out in NYC on July 3, just in different colors. There's no denying this look works for Kim, but do you think she should mix things up a bit? Kim paired skinny grey denim (like Chasely's Denim Legging in Grey) with a beaded army green tank (get the look with 7 for All Mankind's Beaded Twist Tank in Black) under a classic black blazer (try Tt Collection's Dylan in Black). Next up, Kim slipped on a pair of round sunnies and into a pair of black strappy heels, and toted along her favorite black Balenciaga bag. If you're a fan of Kim's bag but can't afford the hefty price tag that comes along with it, check out Carla Mancini's Top Zip Shoulder Bag with Embellishments in Fuchsia - it has a pretty similar shape. Can't wait to read your comments about Kim here, lay it on me readers! While Kim and her alleged new beau Miles Austin have been spotted everywhere lately, it seems that the two haven't made it official just yet. Kim tells Ryan Seacrest: "I'm single. I'm having a good time, meeting some really great people and trying to live my life." However, Kim says, "I'm definitely in a huge love affair with my career right now!" Interesting... I thought she was fairly serious with Miles?
Kim Kardashian seen on Jul 03 2010 in New York, NY. Kim Kardashian was spotted making her way around NYC on July 3, enjoying her holiday weekend on the east coast with the rest of her fam. For her leisurely NYC look, Kim paired a relaxed white tank (just like C&C California's Racerback Twist Tank in White) under a summery lightweight jacket (I love Gold Hawk's Motorcycle Jacket in Linen and The Battalion's Asymmetric Boho Jacket in White is so unique and cool), along with a pair of black leggings with side panel accents. I'm really into Tt Collection's Rachel Legging in Black, they have almost a tuxedo-pant kind of vibe. Kim finished off her look with a classic black leather Balenciaga bag and Christian Louboutin's Clou Noeud spiked platforms that all the celebs seemed to be obsessed with at the moment. Do you like this look on Kim, readers? It's pretty standard, but I much prefer it when she does a basic-chic look like this to when she goes overboard with a trend, a la the military look, exhibit A. Your thoughts? While there have been rumors swirling that Kim is intent on getting back her ex Reggie Bush, it seems that these are just that: rumors. Kim's been seen out and about with her new boo, Dallas Cowboys star Miles Austin, and she's totally smitten! The two took a nighttime ride on a yacht on the Hudson River on Friday night, and then showed up together for Khloe's 26th birthday bash at Chelsea Piers. Says a source close to Kim, "Kim has really fallen for Miles and the feeling is mutual. She is carving out more time in her schedule to be with Miles, and she is telling those close to her that he's 'the one'." Woah, slow down Kim! It might be a little early to call him 'the one.' Another source says, "Kim and Miles are still in the early phases of their relationship - so early, in fact, that some are hesitant to even call it a 'relationship.'" That sounds about right - no need to rush into anything, K!
Kim Kardashian seen on May 24 2010 in West Hollywood, CA. Kim Kardashian made an appearance at the E! Network's 20th Birthday Party in West Hollywood on May 24, celebrating with sisters Kourtney and Khloe and mom Kris at the London Hotel. For her ensemble, Kim donned a long sleeved white embellished dress (for a more minimal look - read: minus the bling - take a look at Carter's Pointed Shoulder Matrix Dress in White) that she paired with mega-lashes and simple stud earrings (check out Jacquie Aiche's Herkimer Stud Earrings in Gold). If you'd like to add a bit of sparkle to your look, try Amrita Singh's Allie Bangle Set in Multi, which mixes gold and silver like Kim's dress does. The finishing touches to Kim's look were a stick straight blowout and metallic gold heels (for metallic gold sandals with a low heel, try Samanta's Ena Sandal Heel in Gold). Is Kim's look a little too OTT for your liking, readers, or do you think that she pulls it off? Whisperings that Kim's had some work done have gained momentum recently in the press, and instead of just ignoring the rumors, Kim's felt the need to publicly address them. She says, "I'm totally not against plastic surgery. I've tried Botox before. That's the only thing that I've done. I've never had my nose done." Something else she's never had work on? Her famous backside. What do you think readers - do you believe Kim, and on another note, don't you think she's waay too young to have already had Botox?
Kim Kardashian seen on May 11 2010 in Beverly Hills, CA. Kim Kardashian was spotted heading into dinner at Mr Chow with her sisters Khloe and Kourtney in Beverly Hills on May 11, rocking a light, spring look. For her outfit, Kim chose a curve-hugging slinky nude dress (for similar options, check out Luc by Lucy's Cut Out Bella Dress in White or Black Halo's Jane Sheath in Blush) that she paired with metallic strappy heels that were accentuated by her metallic manicure. For the finishing touch, Kim wore a pair of ornate gold earrings (take your pick of Jessica Elliot's Blossom Earrings in Vermeil or Anna Beck's Bali Gold Plated Large Leaf Earrings) along with a rosy pink cheek. Do you like Kim's look here, readers? It's definitely a step up from her latest "overly made up flasher" look that she recently sported at Teddy's! While it's really great that Kim has learned to embrace the curves that have helped to make her famous, she seems like she surely loves talking to the press about them! Kim recently said, "I never knew to embrace curves. I looked at my aunt and cousins and saw these Armenian women with big butts and boobs, and I didn't really realize how attractive it actually was then. Your perspective grows." She continued, "Now I think we like to wear tight things, we love feeling good, taking care of ourselves, wearing what we want. And Khloe has lost a lot of weight. We love being sexy and reflecting that in the collection." Aha! It's a plug for her collection at bebe!
Kim Kardashian seen on Apr 26 2010 in Hollywood, CA. Kim Kardashian was spotted stepping out for a little fun at Hollywood nightclub Teddy's following a delicious meal at STK with pals Lance Bass and Cheryl Burke last night, April 26. Looking seductive in a beige trench coat (try Suzabelle's Nicolet Trench Coat in Taupe), it almost appears as if Kim is a flasher waiting for the right moment to surprise the photogs! Nothing like a good flasher-esque trench coat look. She finished off her ensemble with a black Hermes Birkin bag (for a similar bag that's great for weekend getaways - and a fraction of the price of the Birkin - try Lodis' Pia Nylon Stefania Weekender in Black) and a pair of sexy black cutout heels. For similar shoe options, take a gander at Gwyneth Shoes' Omyrah in Black or Farylrobin's Jayden in Black. For her makeup look for the evening, Kim did her signature smokey eye with a rosy cheek and nude, shiny lip. Are you feelin' Kim's look here readers, or do you think the trench coat look isn't really working for her? For those of you who are Kim fans, you might be interested to know that Kim has spoken out recently about regretting posing for men's magazine "Playboy" in 2007. She says, "Iím sorry I did Playboy. I was uncomfortable. 'Go for it,' my mother said, ĎThey might never ask you again. Our show isnít on the air yet. No one knows who you are. Do it and youíll have these beautiful pictures to look at when youíre my age.'" Whether or not Kim regretted stripping down for Hef in the past, she recently posed nude again, this time completely unretouched for "Harper's Bazaar." Of this experience, KK dished: "Itís definitely scary, but itís very liberating. I think the message is embrace your curves and who you are. I feel proud if young girls look up to me and say, 'Iím curvy and proud of it now.' I might have a little bit of cellulite. I might not be toned everywhere. I might struggle in this area or that." What do you feel about the fact that Kim is embracing her natural beauty?
Kim Kardashian seen on Mar 19 2010 in Miami, FL. Reality starlet Kim Kardashian was caught by the paparazzi while she was filming for her sisters' show "Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami" at their Dash store in Miami, FL on March 19, surrounded by a flock of fans trying to get a picture of her. Kim decided that a romper was the way to go for her day of filming, and chose an olive green, 3/4 length sleeve button down romper with chest pockets. For a similar option in bright blue, check out Mason's Belted Romper in Blue. For the rest of her look, she chose a paneled belt (check out Rough Roses' Sectional Elastic Waist Belt in Black) in addition to nude lace-up stilettos and oversized aviator sunglasses. Kim completed her outfit with a dainty gold necklace (try Jules Smith's Lock and Key Necklace in Gold) and a sand colored Balenciaga handbag (Camenae's Aphrodite Tote in Sand is similar). Do you like Kim's outfit overall, readers - or do you think she's looked better? It seems that KK is quite the fan of the military-inspired look lately, as she was just spotted dining at Prime 112 in Miami on March 14 wearing a camo t-shirt with sharp shoulders. Maybe she recently watched Goldie Hawn in "Private Benjamin"? In relationship news, there are recent reports that Kim's relationship with Reggie Bush are is on the rocks. While the two are known for their tumultuous on-again, off-again relationship, RadarOnline.com is reporting that they are heading for splitsville. In fact, they claim that "an insider on the set of the 2011 Calendar Guys shoot last Thursday confirmed Bush was complaining about the troubled on-again, off-again romance." I think that Kim and Reggie make a great couple, let's hope they can work things out!
Kim Kardashian seen on Mar 14 2010 in Miami, FL. Reality starlet Kim Kardashian was spotted heading to dinner at Prime 112 in Miami, FL last night, March 14, going for a casual yet stylized look. Kim started with a patterned camo t-shirt with sharp shoulders (for two other cool patterned tees, try Monrow's Bone Oversized Tee in Euca or Splendid's Crinkle Acid Knot Tee in Graphic) that she paired with a basic pair of black leggings (get the look with some extra edgy detail with David Lerner's Moto Legging in Black) and a pair of military-esque lace up ankle boots. Sorry Kim, but I am REALLY not feeling those boots. Yuck! She completed her outfit with a simple pair of diamond stud earrings (try Jacquie Aiche's Herkimer Stud Earrings in Gold) and, of course, her cell phone. What are your thoughts on Kim here, everyone? Is her look working for you? Kim recently opened up about growing to love her curvaceous figure, and more specifically her backside. She says, "When I was 11, I hated it. I would cry and pray that it would stop growing. Everyone in my family has these big, fat butts! It definitely came from my Armenian side, and I'm proud of my heritage. Every girl has her insecurities, whether she is skinny or not. I'm a curvy girl and I realized my body type is a bit more realistic than some of the models and actresses in Hollywood." Kim continued to say, "There's constant interest in my bottom. Girls come up to me and grab it. And people ask to squeeze it. I sometimes think, 'Everyone's got a butt, why do you care about mine?'" Can any of you relate to Kim on this one?
Kim Kardashian seen on Feb 27 2010 in Las Vegas, NV. Heading through the Las Vegas Airport after arriving from LAX on February 27, Kim Kardashian was spotted smiling for photographers and chatting away on her BlackBerry before heading to a waiting car. Kim is in Vegas for a hosting gig at TAO to promote her new fragrance, which is exclusively available at Sephora stores. For her airport outfit, Kim paired a slouchy sheer t-shirt (like T by Alexander Wang's Sheer Cowl Back Tee in Black) under a cropped black blazer (try Zoa's Classic Cropped Blazer in Black), in addition to a pair of shredded jeans (I love Denim of Virtue's Patience 5 Pocket Tapered Leg Jean in Melrose) and Christian Louboutin's cage booties. She completed her look with a black shoulder bag (check out Lesa Wallace Handbags' Luna Messenger in Black) and a pair of huge sunnies. This is a pretty standard outfit for Kim, but still stylish nonetheless! If you are a fan of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," I'm sure you tuned in to the finale to see little Mason being born. Of course, Kim took to her official Twitter account to document her feelings as she watched the episode, saying "I cried too... sooo emotional." Sister Kourtney was another Kardashian sister to tweet live during the finale, and she said: "It's so crazy to be watching Mason being born with Mason. How amazing r these home videos? @ScottDisick and [little sister] Kyle filmed all of it." It's really cool that Kourtney will always have these memorable moments caught on tape, don't you think?
Kim Kardashian seen on Feb 05 2010 in Miami, FL. Kim Kardashian, beau Reggie Bush, and mama Kris Jenner were spotted dining at Prime 112 in Miami on February 5, and it appears that Kim was doing the best she could to avoid a wardrobe malfunction as she made her way into the restaurant. For her sizzling Miami look, she chose a brightly colored mini dress (for similar options, check out Meghan Fabulous' Susannah Dress in Teal or Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent's St Lucia Slip Mini Dress in Multi) and paired it with black patent platforms, a black clutch (like Elaine Turner's Allie Clutch in Black), and a double finger ring (very similar to Erica Anenberg's Double Finger Ring in Sterling Silver). It also seem like Kim got a fresh spray tan and false eyelash application before stepping out to dinner! As I'm sure you know, Kim is in Miami to support Reggie for the Super Bowl, and it looks like her support paid off. His team, the New Orleans Saints, won the big game! Of course, Kim took to her official Twitter account last night and posted "Going to bed! Had a quick bite w the fam, now praying I can even fall asleep! Tomorrow is such a big day! Tweet dreams!" Earlier today, her anticipation was building as she said "In route to the stadium. Let's go Saints! The energy is in the air!" After all was said and done and the Saints were victorious, Kim announced "Who dat there gonna beat them Saints!!!! We won the SUPERBOWL!!!!!!" Congrats Reggie, and congrats to you too Kim!
Kim Kardashian seen on Jan 19 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Kim Kardashian sure loves her glitzy one-shouldered mini dresses with shoulder pads, now doesn't she? Kim was spotted supporting gal pal Mel B. at the launch of Mel's line of Sugar Factory Couture Lollipops at Guys and Dolls in Los Angeles on January 19, rocking a metallic patterend one-shouldered dress (for the one-shouldered look, try either Eva Franco's Tosca Vanity Dress or Single's Jeweled Asymmetric Belted Dress in Brown) along with opaque back tights and black heels. She completely her look with sultry makeup and a black manicure. What do you think of Kim's look here, readers - hot or not? Kim already has her own line of ďcouture pops,Ē which cost about feature a glitzy lollipop stick and come in 2 flavors (silver rainbow and champagne). Theyíre about $25 a pop. Eesh! $25 for a lollipop? They better taste good to spend that much moolah on them. For all of the Kim fans out there, you'll be pleased to hear that Kim has obtained a restraining order against a scary stalker. The man, Dennis Shaun Bowman, 26, has been described as extremely delusional and has been ordered to not contact Kim in any way, including his favorite method, Twitter. Allegedly, Bowman has repeatedly showed up her appearances, sometimes in facepaint depicting him as the Joker character from "Batman" fame. Soo creepy! Kim says, "I am extremely frightened by Mr. Bowman because he appears to be obsessed with me and is extremely delusional." I am glad that Kim has this restraining order in place, how scary that must have been for her!
Kim Kardashian seen on Jan 08 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Kim Kardashian was photographed out with younger sister Kylie for a night out a Nobu in LA on January 8, and I think that this is one of my absolute fave off-duty looks for Kim. It might be because I love the color grey - any and every shade of it. Whatever it is, Kim looks smashing here. If you've noticed an improvement in Kim's style lately, it's because she hired stylist Monica Rose to overhaul her look, and you can check out Monica's blog here. For her Nobu look, Kim started with a sheer patterned blouse (try either Civil Smith's Parlor Shirt in Grey Plaid or Da-Nang's Leopard Long Sleeve Blouse ) and fur vest (Kim's been wearing fur vests quite a bit lately), and we can only hope they're faux - check out The Batallion's Veggie Faux Fur Vest in Ivory), and paired them with a pair of ripped skinnies (like 7 for All Mankind's Roxanne Jean in Vintage Shore or Hudson Jeans' Collin Skinny Jean in Martin) and grey boots. From there, she toted a dove grey Hermes bag that I am totally drooling over, and accessorized with oversize round sunnies and a few beaded bracelets (very similar to Ettika's Solitaire Combo Strand Bracelet in Gold/Turquoise). What are your thoughts about Kim K's look here, readers - hot or not? In a recent interview, Kim says that although she has lost weight and toned up due to a grueling workout schedule, it's still tricky to lose her cellulite. She says, "I don't have a problem telling people, 'Hey, look, I have cellulite!' I do everything I can in my power to fix it. I never said cellulite was cute. But I have it. I embrace it, I'm okay with it!" She continued to speak out about how much weight she's lost, and how skinny she looks in her QuickTrim ads, saying, "I looked really toned [in the ads]. I got a lot of flak for that. [People said] 'Oh, don't lose your curves! Why did you lose weight?'....You look heavier when you're on TV, so it's better to get [your weight] down. But the weight I'm at now is the perfect weight for me. I'm still extremely curvy." What are your thoughts on this, readers?
Kim Kardashian seen on Jan 02 2010 in Hollywood, CA. Kim Kardashian was photographed leaving dinner at Katsuya in Hollywood on January 2, and is it just me, or is Kim's look strikingly similar to the outfit that Victoria Beckham premiered back in February of last year and then repeated on December 12? I definitely think so! I wonder if Kim is looking to Posh as a sort of style mentor? You can get their look by starting with a (preferably faux) fur vest over a sheer black t-shirt (try James Perse's Twist Drape Neck T-Shirt in Black), along with a pair of black leggings (like Paige Premium Denim's Glam Rock Legging in Vinyl) and classic black stilettos. Finish your look off with a pair of huge aviator sunglasses, stackable gold bangles (very similar to Alex and Ani's Love Expandable Wire Bangle Set in Gold), a statement gold necklace (try Maya Brenner Designs' Jewelry Box Necklace in Vermeil), and a huge Hermes handbag. What do you think of Kim's look here - do you think that she looks good here, or did Victoria rock this style better? Earlier in the day, Kim visited her sister Kourtney and her newborn baby Mason, and (naturally) took to her Twitter to announce: "Just left my nephew Mason! Iím so in love!" Along with the rest of the Twitterverse, Kim posted her "welcome to the New Year" Tweet to her oodles of followers, which read: "2009 was great! I want to thank u all for the fun & you support, lets make 2010 even better! God bless you all!" What are some of your resolutions for 2010, readers? I'd love to hear how you plan on spending the year!
Kim Kardashian seen on Nov 07 2009 in Culver City, CA. Raven-haired beauty Kim Kardashian was photographed at the Westfield Culver City-Center Court in Culver City on November 7, celebrating fashion and posing with the numerous fans that showed up to get a picture with Kim. For her Westfield appearance, Kim started with a black sequined blazer (for two similar options, try 7 for All Mankind's Sequin Blazer in Ash or Genetic Denim's The Fonda Motorcycle Jacket in Black Mirror) over a patterned tank top (like Zoa's Sequin Strap Tunic in Blue Jean) that she then paired with shiny black leggings (similar to Rock & Republic's Melissa Leggings in Black). Accessory wise, Kim picked a seriously statement-making necklace (both Ax+Apple's Grace Necklace in Gold and Laura Matthews Designs' Scroll Necklace in Gold are sure to spark conversation) along with strappy black heels, and finished her look off with a steely grey manicure and her trademark wavy locks. What are your thoughts of KK's look here - do you think she looks good? While I feel like we've seen (and will continue to see) this look on Kim in many different variations (i.e. sub the leggings for a bandage skirt or the blazer for a vest), there's no question that she's found a style that works for her. If it ain't broke, don't fix it! If you are one of Kim's numerous followers on Twitter, I'm sure you know that she recently participated in a charity boxing match held for the Dream Foundation at the Commerce Casino in Commerce, CA, and suffered quite the blow to the face. She even Tweeted a picture of her black eye the next day! Then again, it could have just been all of her smokey eye makeup that she usually wears. I kid, I kid. She tells People Magazine, "This boxing match was crazy! Lots of action. I got banged up a bit but it was all for a good cause." Oh, Kim - what crazy event will you participate in next?
Kim Kardashian seen on Oct 15 2009 in Hollywood, CA. Fulfilling her hosting duties at the launch event for Fusion Beautyís Infatuation Lip Gloss held at Sephora in the Hollywood & Highland complex in Hollywood last night, October 15, Kim Kardashian was spotted posing away on the carpet for the incessant shutterbugs. For her glitzy look, Kim paired a sequined silver blazer (for an added dash of glimmer, top your 'fit with Cake Couture's Sequined Short Sleeve Cashmere Sweater in Multi - which is currently 50% off!) with a white silk camisole (try Lotta Stensson's Silk Crepe Racer Tank in White) and a fitted black mini skirt (similar to Tt Collection's Carrie Skirt in Black). She completed her ensemble with a loose and semi-wavy coif and a pair of killer YSL Divine black woven leather booties. What are your thoughts on Kim's look, readers - do you think she's rocking it? I would have liked to see maybe one additional accessory on Kim, perhaps Marnie Bugs' exotic Deniz Cuff in Diamondback? And I'm not too sure how I feel about the blazer here... I know sequins are all the rage, but is it just me or does Kim's jacket look a tad cheap? Readers, weigh in! While it seems that her sisters Khloe and Kourtney seem to be getting most of the press lately, what with Khloe's wedding and Kourtney's pregnancy, Kim is taking every chance she gets to speak out about her sisters' current situation. She tells OK! Magazine that the names Kourtney is considering for her baby are "really plain and simple." So don't expect to see a Sparrow James Midnight Kardashian! She continues, "I feel like she'll know what she wants when she sees it, so we keep on giving her suggestions and ideas, but nothing's sticking so far. Khloe said some really stupid names that were really weird and... they're just weird." What do you think a good name for Kourtney's wee one is?
Kim Kardashian seen on Oct 02 2009 in West Hollywood, CA. Kim Kardashian was joined by sisters Kourtney and Khloe, in addition to brother Rob and Kourtney's baby daddy Scott Disick, at popular eatery STK in West Hollywood on October 2, as the gaggle of Kardashians filmed scenes for their hit show "Keeping Up With The Kardashians." Of course, they were swarmed by the paps as they made their exit from the restaurant, with Khloe proudly flashing her 9-carat wedding ring for the photogs. For her family outing 'fit, Kim chose a figure hugging nude dress (check out 12th Street by Cynthia Vincent's Sequin Slip in Beige or Qi's Jersey Cami Slip in Taupe) with a black necklace from Nicole Richie's popular House of Harlow 1960 jewelry line and black leather stilettos. Kardashian completed her look by carrying a black leather jacket (like Mike & Chris' Rohan Leather Jacket in Black) and a matching oversized tote (very similar to Linea Pelle Collection's Dylan Zip Tote in Black). What do you think about KK's evening look, readers? Are you feeling her polished nude-and-black ensemble? Personally, I think this is one of Kim's best looks yet, glamorous yet understated. In other Kim news, it seems that she is finally ready to discuss her infamous sex tape debacle once again. Kim is the cover girl for the November issue of Cosmopolitan, and reveals how horrible the whole situation was for her. She says, "I was devastated. But when something negative happens, I pick myself up and move on, and I don't make the same mistake twice." Kim also discusses how she gave herself a new self-appointed nickname, Kim "Ambitious" Kardashian. I guess that Kim's quote in the mag about the sex tape is true, and she learned from her mistakes and won't make them again. However, this could have all been prevented if she hadn't made them the first time...
Kim Kardashian seen on Sep 05 2009 in West Hollywood, CA. Kim Kardashian was joined by friend Brittny Gastineau for an afternoon of shopping at The Grove in West Hollywood on September 5, paying close attention to her BlackBerry the entire time. However, while it may seem that Kim was paying more attention to her phone than to her friend, think again! While at The Grove, Kim posted the following message on her Twitter: "Best friends are the best! What would we do without them!!! I love @BrittGastineau!" For her ensemble, Kim chose a romper with a fitted bodice and a more relaxed lower section (try Johnson's Wool Crepe Jumper in Taupe or Da-Nang's Slit Neck Jumper Dress in Caper) that she paired with a black Balenciaga bag (if you are feelin' Kim's neutral color scheme, take a look at Carla Mancini's Whipstitched Tote in Taupe), black criss-cross cutout heels, oversized reflective sunnies, and a few large bangles (similar to CC Skye's Studio 54 Mesh Cuff in Gold). What are your thoughts on KK's look here - hit or miss? After the news broke that Kim's sister, Kourtney, was with child, Kim has gone out of her way to be there for her sister and make sure that all of her baby-related needs are met. But now, it seems that Kim may want a little one of her own! She posted the following message on her official blog: "I want a baby!!!! OK, so maybe not right now, but I canít wait to be an aunt." Seems like she definitely has baby fever! What are you thinking - do you think Kim would make a good mother, or at the very least - aunt?
Kim Kardashian seen on Aug 27 2009 in Hollywood, CA. Kim Kardashian enjoyed a sushi dinner with her stylist, Monica Rose, at Katsuya in Hollywood last night, August 27, and was greeted by the paparazzi as the left the upscale eatery. Kim's girls-night-out look started with an exotic patterned silk blouse (for two similar options, check out LaROK's Rain Mini Tunic in Purple or Black Halo's Mischa Top in Print) tucked into a pair of high-waisted black silk shorts (try Rails' Mila Short in Black or Johnson's Satin Belt Loop Short in Black) that she belted with a black leather belt (check out Motif 56's Opal Belt in Black). For the finishing touches, KK grabbed a Balenciaga handbag and slipped into a pair of black peeptoe slingback stilettos. What are your thoughts on Kim's look here, and her recent style in general - has her stylist Monica made some nice choices for her? I think that Kim's style has done a complete 180 recently, she looked so much more polished lately! Always keeping an eye out for new business ventures, Kim is all set to launch her new fragrance in 2010. The still-unnamed scent is a collaboration with Lighthouse Beauty, which Kim tells WWD, "Collaborating with Lighthouse Beauty was a really creative, innovative process. Whatís so different about their approach is that they have worked closely with me on all aspects of my fragrance, the bottle, the juice, and even our distribution strategy so I can develop a product that truly represents me and speaks to my fans. Because of their commitment to including me in the process, the fragrance really captures who I am.Ē Are any of you aspiring to smell like this Kardashian?
Kim Kardashian seen on Jul 20 2009 in Beverly Hills, CA. Kim Kardashian was caught by photographers while dropping off her Bentley for its service in Beverly Hills on July 20, rocking a casual and vibrant summer look for her day of errands in BH. To get Kim K's look, start with a brightly patterned mini dress, like T-Bags' Bubble Dress in Flower Power, or one of Single Dress' trippy options, like the Kneelength Tie-Front Dress in Turquoise Multi or the Shirred Bra Top in Mango Multi, under a functional yet easy coat, like Walter's Structured Trench Coat in Khaki. Next up, Kim slung a huge black hobo bag (similar to Julie K Handbags' Jen Shoulder Bag in Black) over her shoulder, and finished up her look by accessorizing with a gold cuff (try Jessica Elliot's Open Clover Cuff in Vermeil), oversized shades, and flat, gladiator slash cage-esque sandals. What is your overall impression of Kim's look here, do you think she's making it work, or is there just too much going on? As I'm sure you already know, Kim is dating NFL player Reggie Bush, but what you may not know is that Kim has had to endure a lot of negativity due to the fact that she and Reggie are an interracial couple, as he is African American and she is mixed with Armenian, Dutch, and Scottish. She says, "ďI donít understand it because I was raised to not see color. But youíre still faced with it." When Kim set out to visit Africa earlier this month on a charity mission to take a tour of diamond mines with Russell Simmonís Global Grind, she was quite shocked to feel like she "didn't belong." Of her trip, she says, "All the comments were, ĎHow dare she go to Africa,í and itís just like, you know what, I canít believe that charity work is being judged, and I canít believe people would even comment on that and I think itís really disgusting. At the end of the day, you just have to brush them off, you have no choice. I hope by the time Reggie and I have kids, things will be different." Here here, Kim! What are your thoughts on this hot topic, readers?
Kim Kardashian seen on Jun 24 2009 in New York, NY. Kim Kardashian was spotted with her beau Reggie Bush at the AXE Instinct Launch Event held at the Hard Rock Live in NYC on June 24, going for a tougher look on the red carpet than usual. Starting with a cropped black motorcycle jacket (like Gold Hawk's Belted Leather Jacket in Moonless Night) over a loose-fitting white cami (similar to Rails' Jacqueline Tank in Ivory), Kim chose a distressed pair of grey denim (take your pick between Paige Jeans' Blue Heights Jean in Grey Walls or Dylan George's Lucy Cropped Zip Jean in Czar) with black studded booties down below. Accessory wise, Kim nabbed a foldover, zippered clutch (Julie K Handbags' Jessica Fold Over Clutch in Night Exotic is a similar option) a chose a heavy metal necklace to finish things off. What do you think, readers - are you diggin' KK's look here? Taking a page from the Megan Fox handbook of life, Kim is dishing with Esquire Magazine how she doesn't really have to turn on her sex-appeal, it's just naturally there. She says, "Iím just really confident sexually, and I think that sort of oozes out of my pores. Itís just there. Itís something I donít have to turn on. If you know how to take control of [being a sex symbol], then it can be powerful. But I have no idea how to handle it yet, how to deal with it." What are your thoughts, is Kim (or will she ever be??) a sex symbol?
Kim Kardashian seen on May 16 2009 in Miami, FL. Kim Kardashian was caught by the paparazzi heading back to the Hilton Hotel in Miami, FL after dining at Prime 112 on Ocean Drive, seeming to be having quite a good time. For her Miami look, Kim started with a vibrant patterned silk scarf (Pucci?) paired with a complementary pink camisole (like Ella Moss' Leilani Cami in Guava) and a black vest with gold buttons (check out Rails' Dilyn Vest in Black). Kim then finished off her outfit with a pair of ripped black jeans (take a look at Joe's Jeans' Chelsea Knit Jean in Black), black boots, a single gold bracelet (I love the classic simplicity of Danielle Stevens Jewelry's Single Engraved Bracelet in Gold), her trusty Balenciaga bag and of course, sunglasses at night. What is your opinion of Kim's outfit here everyone - do you like? And what are your thoughts on Kim's style as a whole lately, anyone see a fashion evolution for this Kardashian sister? While there has been quite the hubub about stepdad (and Brody's father) Bruce Jenner's recent facelift, Kim says that she is definitely considering getting some work done herself someday. She says, "I am down for it. One day I will definitely get it. I would probably get my boobs done after I have kids. I think every woman needs a good lift after they have kids, so I would start with that. You never know what I would need- it depends on what I would look like when I get older. But I would definitely do something." Very interesting... readers, weight in! Where do you stand on plastic surgery?
Kim Kardashian seen on Apr 04 2009 in Hollywood, CA. Kim Kardashian hit up the I "Heart" Ronson Launch Party held at Bar Marmont in Hollywood on April 4, after stopping by the birthday party of her good friend Joe Francis held at his Bel Air home. In a vibrant black, white and aqua color block frock (check out similar options, like Black Halo's Colorblock Sheath Dress with Contrast in Ocean/White, or if you love the hue of Kim's dress, check out Woo's Michelle Dress in Pool Blue) paired with a classic black clutch (I'm liking the exotic texture of Julie K Handbags' Jessica Fold Over Clutch in Night Exotic) and structural black heels, she let her raven locks take center stage. Kim decided for the night that when it comes to jewelry, less is more, and instead opted for a fresh mani/pedi, which she indulged in earlier that afternoon at her favorite Beverly Hills nail salon. Are you liking Kim's look here? I think her stylist definitely has a good idea as to what works best for KK's look! As you may or may not know, Kim's sister Khloe is (or should I say, was) a contestant on "Celebrity Apprentice," and was "fired" by Donald on the most recent episode. Naturally, Kim took to her official blog to defend her sis. She said, "Last night Donald Trump fired Khloe!" Kardashian writes. "I was a little disappointed at how she was given the boot! Trump fired her after saying he'd lost respect for her because she previously had a DUI. She obviously made an awful mistake but definitely has taken responsibility for her actions and we are all very proud of her." She continued, "I am so proud Khloe made it this far! The reason she got fired had nothing to do with her work ethic or her performance on the show! I'm glad she's home!" What do you think, was Donald's reason for firing Khloe legit?
Kim Kardashian seen on Mar 26 2009 in Hollywood, CA. In addition to Rihanna, Kim Kardashian was also spotted out in Hollywood at Bar Delux, along with sis Khloe, for a sisterly-bonding night on the town. For her club-worthy look, Kim started with an essential black blazer (check out William Rast's Blazer in Black) over a vibrantly patterned top (for a cute top perfect for the coming Spring months, take a look at Walter's Tulip Print Detail Front Tank in Pink Multi) and paired with shiny black leggings (opt for Tag Jean's Stretch Skinny Pant in Black) and black pointed-toe heels. Kim's finishing touches? A sleek black clutch (try Julie K Handbags' Sasha Clutch in Black Glaze), a large attention-grabbing necklace (similar to Christie Martin Jewelry's Hammered Wire Necklace in Sterling Silver), and of course, fake eyelashes! What are your thoughts on Kim K's outfit choice - appropriate for a night out in Hollywood? A few days ago, the internet was ablaze after Complex Magazine accidentally posted a pre-Photoshopped picture of Kim, and then replaced it with the properly Photoshopped version a little later. In the new picture, Kim appeared much more slender and her legs were smoothed out, and Kim is speaking out and telling the world that she doesn't care if you see her cellulite. Curvy girls have cellulite, she says! "So what: I have a little cellulite. What curvy girl doesn't!? How many people do you think are photoshopped? It happens all the time! I'm proud of my body and my curves and this picture coming out is probably helpful for everyone to see that just because I am on the cover of a magazine doesn't mean I'm perfect. At the same time as this Complex shoot, I was gearing up for my fitness DVD and you should see my thighs now!!! Haha!" What are your thoughts - do you agree with Kim's views on her body?
Kim Kardashian seen on Feb 05 2009 in Hollywood, CA. Kim Kardashian was spotted heading into the launch event of the new Belvedere IX vodka at My House in Hollywood on February 5, and seriously my mind is boggled at how she is even walking in those painfully high, painfully precarious hot pink stilettos! There is like one single thin strap keeping her foot secure - I don't know, I definitely give Kim an A for bravery here! For the rest of her 'fit, KK chose a black and white mini dress with exposed zipper (for a dress with a similar color combo, check out Tricia Fix's Siva Cocktail Dress in White, or tuck a white cami, like Zoa's Logo Camisole in White into a full black skirt, like Prairie New York's Wool Pleated Skirt in Black Flannel) under a black military-inspired jacket (similar to William Rast's Outerwear Black Jacket). Finishing things off, Kim accessorized with a gold watch, simple studded earrings and a classy black clutch, similar to Jenny Yuen Handbags' Cleo Clutch in Black. What do you think of Kim's outfit overall (the shoes are a different story)? While everyone is unanimously fascinated and confused about the current Chris Brown/Rihanna news, Kim has taken to her blog to vent about the mysterious happenings. Kim said, "Everyone was scrambling around trying to figure out how to fill the time lost due to Rihanna and Chris Brown not showing up. I am in shock Rihanna and Chris canceled on this yearís Grammy show! I was SO looking forward to seeing both of them. They were essentially going to be the prom queen and king this year!" Well - looks like there's trouble in the castle if Chris and Rihanna are the king and queen. What do you think about Kim's sentiments, and this whole mess in general?
Kim Kardashian seen on Jan 15 2009 in Beverly Hills, CA. Kim Kardashian was spotted out for lunch at The Ivy followed by a shopping spree at Chanel and Christian Louboutin with sister Kourtney and Adrienne Bailon on January 15, blocking the intrusive paparazzi flashes with her mega-sized sunglasses. For the rest of her look, Kim paired a silk jumpsuit (for a denim option, check out The ProportionofBlu's Uno Jumpsuit in Indigo) with a tailored blazer (similar to William Rast's Blazer in Navy) and cage-inspired heels. For the finishing touches, KK chose a silver necklace and a black Balenciaga bag (for a similar option, check out Carla Mancini's Braided Handle with Front Tab Tote in Pewter) for her day of shopping. The next stop for this inseparable trio? Why, Sundance of course! After touching down in Utah, the girls were spotted at the Kari Feinstein Sundance Style Lounge, picking up some free goodies and posing for photos, natch. After the Style Lounge, Kim stopped by 50 Cent's Dinner Party, which was also attended by Paris Hilton and her new "BFF" Brittany Flickinger. No word on whether the two former friends had any words with one another, but either way, there's no doubt that situation was definitely an awkward one!
Kim Kardashian seen on Jan 07 2009 in Beverly Hills, CA. Kim Kardashian was spotted having lunch with her mom, Kris Jenner, in Beverly Hills on January 7, and I must say, Kim must've gotten herself a stylist because she's been looking fab lately! To steal KK's look, start with a ruffled black blouse, like Gold Hawk's Short Ruffle Tunic in Raven Black, and pair with high-waisted, wide leg denim, like Pierce Jeans' Iceland Katherine High Waist Jean in Steel. Kim accessorized her 'fit with a black Hermes belt, Prada's butterfly sunglasses, patent leather peeptoe heels and a matching black tote (I love the peace sign on Carla Mancini's Leather Tote Peace Sign Symbol Bag in Black). What do you think of Kim's look here - polished or pretentious? In related news, it seems that Kim might be ready to pop out a little one sometime soon. Speaking out on the topic, Kardashian says, ""I do [have motherhood on my mind]. I was just at a basketball game with a friend who has two babies and Kourtney and I were holding them and she looked over to me and was like 'this is us in ten years' and I was like no, 'this is us in just a few years." When asked if she would have children before getting married, she replied, "Never say never, but I don't think so. I was married before and I didn't have kids, so I'm pretty old fashioned like that. I'd like to be married." What do you think - would Kim be a good mom?
