Remember last time Miranda Kerr and Selena Gomez got snapped together? They completely played it cool, even though Justin Bieber was apparently somewhere in the background hiding behind Kim Kardashian‘s butt.
Kendall Jenner has followed in the footsteps of pretty much every celeb who loves chic party clothing by wearing Bec & Bridge for the 2015 Met Gala after-party this week.
The reality TV star and model rocked the Australian label’s rust-orange Vagabond skirt from its Spring 2014 collection, and, as you can imagine, is now pretty much sold-out worldwide. We’ve got our fingers crossed for a stock replenishment.
Tonight’s episode of Australia’s Next Top Model will see Alex and this week’s guest-judge Kelly go head-to-head during her big appearance on the judging panel. “She called me a dickhead,” Alex tells theFashionSpot.
All good thing must come to an end and the adage rings true for the Kardashian Kollection at Sears. A spokesperson for the retailer confirmed that it would no longer be selling the reality TV sisters’ line, noting that the decision to drop the Kollection was mutual. Call it a conscious uncoupling.
Apparently, the line wasn’t selling so well and was often found on the sale rack. A quick look at the Kardashian Kollection for Sears site and you’ll find deeply discounted pieces; for example, a $59 lace crop top is now selling for $9.99. Sears itself also hasn’t been doing too well, with sales down 7 percent in the last quarter after 11 straight quarters of losses. It seems even the ubiquitous Kardashian brand and family name couldn’t get shoppers excited.
We’re not all that surprised by the news. The clothes weren’t particularly chic and while the Kardashians did sometimes wear pieces from the line, not even their high-end footwear pairings and glamorous hair and makeup crew could make the clothes not look… inexpensive.
Sears stopped carrying the Kardashian line after the holidays. While we can’t say we were huge fans of the Kollection, we will definitely miss seeing the Kardashians traipse around in pieces from their line, acting as if they wear the same kind of low-priced cotton and polyester pieces regular Americans do every day, rather than the finest threads crafted from some of the world’s most celebrated designers. But we guess it was fun for them to pretend, even if it was just for a little while.
And speaking of pretending, the Kardashians’ younger sister Kylie Jenner has finally let the cat out of the bag regarding her lips. Until now, Kylie has claimed that her suddenly-plump pout just looked bigger through the magic of makeup. But in a teaser clip from the upcoming Keeping Up with the Kardashians episode, she admits what we all pretty much suspected: that she also had a little help from a doctor.
“I have temporary lip fillers,” she admitted. “It’s just an insecurity of mine and it’s just what I wanted to do.” Kylie also mentioned that she hid the obvious truth from reporters because of the scrutiny she faces in the public eye. “I might have tiptoed around the truth, but I didn’t lie.” Cue all the hand-wringing and think pieces about a 17-year-old child undergoing cosmetic procedures.
So, next time you find yourself itching to recreate Kylie’s pillowy lip look, just remember it will take a whole lot more than just makeup to get that pout.
Net-a-Porter is expanding its mobile presence with a new app launching soon that combines shopping and social media. The Net Set, coming to the iTunes App store May 13 will allow users to create a profile, “like” wares from the Net-a-Porter website and see what other users around the world are liking. You can also post your own images, for which the app will help you find “style matches,” or goods available at Net-a-Porter that are similar or related. It’s like making your own personal mood board come to life. Which, if you’re a shopping addict, could turn out to be a huge problem for your wallet!
The app will also allow you to follow, or as they say “admire” other users and keep up with their personal style. You can choose to browse incognito or offer up your picks to the opinions of your admirers. Brands will also have their own pages and in-app purchases, naturally will be available. The app boasts that it allows you to shop with “the most stylish people in the world” and will be available for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, with an Android launch date expected for the future.
So far, the Net Set community has 15,000 members who have already joined (thanks to beta testing) and now they’re opening it up to the rest of us through a web portal where you can request an invitation. It’s clear that Net-a-Porter is looking for an edge in the mobile market and this could certainly provide it. The company has been going through many changes, just recently announcing a merger with luxury e-tailer Yoox. It seems the group is trying to make some serious innovative moves in the mobile sector and this app could help the company solidify their footing in the mobile shopping market. There are already shopping apps with Instagram-esque formats like Spring, but the Net Set’s photo recognition feature, combined with the Net-a-Porter name could give the app an edge over its competitors.
