Kendall Jenner to Front Karl Lagerfeld’s Next Campaign

It’s a good week to be Kendall Jenner. The buzzy model just announced that she inked a contract to be the face of Estée Lauder, will likely walk in Chanel’s Métiers d’Art show (there’s always next year to do Victoria’s Secret) and now, she’s been tapped to front Karl Lagerfeld’s next campaign. 

Lagerfeld has taken quite a liking to Kendall, casting her in past shows for Chanel and Fendi. With the press that comes with her name, it makes perfect sense why the designer would choose her for his next act. After all, she is the biggest name of all the models scheduled to appear in the campaign that also includes Ming Xi, Baptiste Giabiconi and Sasha Luss. 

This has clearly been a big year for Kendall’s modeling career, and it looks like she is going to continue her rise to the top of the modeling industry in 2015. With that Estée Lauder contract plus this (and likely other) high-profile campaigns under her belt, Kendall’s shaping up to be inescapable next year.

Jesinta chose a black midriff-baring dress by lace legends Lover, featuring a front criss-cross bodice and slim-fitting pencil midi skirt to the bottom. She added metallic Stuart Weitzman pointy pumps, which we would’ve preferred in black as the glitzy Alexander McQueen clutch bag and gold arm cuff already mixed things up enough. We loved the statement red lip and soft balayaged waves, though. (more…)

Much Latex, Little Time for Kim Kardashian in Melbourne

In case you haven’t heard, Kim Kardashian is developing a bit of a fetish for latex during her time here in Australia. Yesterday she popped into Melbourne’s Chadstone Shopping Centre to promote her new fragrance Fleur Fatale, and thought a skintight latex pencil skirt was the appropriate wardrobe choice to meet her fans of all ages.

She could probably wear a shapeless muumuu and still manage to show off her bewildering curves, so we’re not quite sure why she continues to wear fabric fit for a dominatrix. At least this time she didn’t double up on latex like her red carpet appearance earlier in the week, and chose to break it up with a high-neck David Koma top with chic white piping.

She turned to her favourite Atsuko Kudo for the white-latex midi skirt, and teamed the getup with neutral two-strap heels. Her slick middle-parted low pony and dark-plum lips were to die for, and we actually would’ve praised this outfit if she traded up the latex for, well, anything else.

Lammily Doll Has Real Human Proportions — and Stretch Marks

lammily-dollNickolay Lamm set out to create a fashion doll that was shaped like an actual human being rather than some sort of freakish Barbie-like rendering of a woman that could never exist in nature. In March, Lamm launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise money to actually make the dolls, which he calls Lammily. Now, he’s putting them to the test and in the hands of students at a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania private school to see just how this realistic doll would be received. Get ready to have your faith restored in humanity because it turns out the kids loved her.

“She’s really unique,” one girl said. “I don’t have other dolls like this. It looks real.” So real that the kids imagined her doing real-life activities and having real jobs; teaching, swimming and surfing. They also noted the physicality of the doll — Lammily’s feet allow her to actually stand, a far cry from Barbie’s (admittedly delicious) feet, locked in a perma-tiptoe stance. As one boy so eloquently put it, “The toes…they’re not like, a bunch of bumps.”

The kids seemed to really pick up on the Lammily doll’s realistic nature and their responses illustrated that. One girl mentioned that Lammily looks like she would help people, another said the doll looked like her sister. Next to Barbie, Lammily seemed more accessible and more relatable to the kids, who probably don’t yet understand the body image issues that arise from ultra thin and disproportionate dolls like Barbie. They assigned Lammily with a more caring, human-like nature, which makes sense, considering she’s supposed to be built like an actual person.
