While I hate to quote Scott Disick, it's true; the Jenner sisters are the ones with the big long-term earning potential as far as the Kardashian-Jenner brood is concerned. Kendall and Kylie have already bagged contributing positions for Seventeen and now have a Teen Vogue cover under their belts and thing's aren't slowing down.
Today this images was revealed showing Kendall wrapped up in a giant shoebox for the Beverly Center's Fashion's Night Out campaign. The ad was shot by Moshe and Eddie Brakha and, according to WWD, sees the Wilhemina model wear a Georges Chakra couture gown. Naturally, then, it's safe to say that we can expect the whole clan to be at the Beverly Center mall come September 6.
They already have fragrances, clothing lines, books and home collections so it will come as no surprise that the Kardashians are continuing to branch out. Yesterday Kourtney, Kim and Khloe announced that they are working on a beauty collection, which will hit stores across America in December in time for the holiday season.
The line, titled Khroma Beauty, features everything from illuminators and eye shadows to lipsticks and mascaras and will be available exclusively at Ulta stores. 'We're so excited to partner with Boldface Licencing+Branding on this new venture. There's a glam girl in all of us and it's a dream come true to have our own makeup line and to share it with women around the world,' the sisters said in a statement.
When Katie Price decided to launch a magazine about, well, herself we were not surprised and are we shocked that the Kardashians are following suit - well, no. Today Page Six reports that the reality TV family are discussing the idea with several media companies but thus far, a deal with American Media Inc. seems to be the most likely.
The partnership makes sense. The media company owns several tabloids like The National Enquirer and health and fitness magazine, Shape, as well as the newly launched Reality Weekly magazine. It's hard to remember an issue of Us Weekly and other celebrity magazines that didn't have one of the Kardashian brood on the cover.
As expected, the full Kardashian brood attended Avril Lavigne's S/S12 collection for Abbey Dawn yesterday where 14 year-old Kylie Jenner walked into the show. Even new member of the family, Kris Humphries, made an appearance sitting next to Lavigne's boyfriend and Kardashian step-brother Brody Jenner.
The show was just what you would imagine an Avril Lavigne collection to be. So yes, over the knee length black and white striped shorts came with just about everything, short tutus appeared as did plaid shirts, braces, super short checked skirts, bowler hats and fingerless lace gloves so not necessarily what you would want to see your teenager daughter in. Think Taylor Momsen, and you're almost there.
Just in case you're interested, have a look at the collection in our gallery.
As we reported, on Tuesday Annie Leibovitz lent her studio in the meatpacking district to the Kardashians to officially launch their Kardashian Kollections for Sears. You'll be forgiven for thinking that the launch has already taken place - remember those images we showed you a while back of another launch party - but we promise, this is the official one.
Although the collection is not for everyone, I wouldn't dismiss the sisters' efforts too quickly. Since the launch, Sears have confirmed that several pieces have already sold out. According to Bruno Schavi - the designer who worked with them on the project - the best sellers so far have been the leopard print jumpsuit that Khloe wears in the campaign and the 'fiesta bra'.
Just in case you're interested, Fashionista confirms that Avril Lavigne will show her Abbey Dawn line at New York Fashion Week next month. This season Lavigne has expanded the collection to include dresses, denim and accessories and a full menswear collection alongside the existing t-shirts and hoodies.
Although I'm not a fan of her style, if you like the singer's aesthetic you'll be sure to like the collection as it features all the pieces you would expect Lavigne to wear. Cast your mind back to her 'Sk8r Boy' music video and you're almost there. The one big questions is how she will be able to develop the brand from season to season. After all, her style has hardly evolved since she hit the music scene back in the early 2000s.
They've dressed you in their various clothing lines, created somewhere for yout to shop and tried to help you get in shape with their Shape Up and Quick Trim deals and now they want to make sure that you're nail perfect. Just when you thought that there was nothing left for the Kardashians to attach their name to, they go and find something.
Yesterday the sisters (minus Kim) held an event to introduce beauty editors to their new line of nail varnishes with OPI's sister brand, Nicole by OPI. Named Kardashian Kolors - natually - the line features 14 different shapes inspired by Kim, Kourtney and Khloe as well as younger sisters Kylie and Kendal and mom Kris.
Uh-oh: First Tim Gunnsays the Kardashian sisters have "an absence of taste," and now the Coco Perez team is saying the girls might have an absence of scruples. A design from Bebe's Kardashian collection, which Kim Kardashian wore to the label's show at New York Fashion Week, looks strikingly similar to a Look 22 from the Fall '09 Fendi collection. Eniko Mihalik originally wore a cream hooded dress topped with a brown leather corset on the runway, while Kardashian wore a grey hooded dress with a black corset last week.
Coco Perez points out that Kim Kardashian previously was accused of stealing the logo of a Houston-based jewellery designer. (She was sent a Korcula necklace in 2008, was photographed wearing it, and then used a similar design for her perfume branding.) To Kardashian's credit, she never claimed to actually design the Bebe collection that's currently in question, and we know there are hazy lines when it comes to fashion copyright laws. That said, we wouldn't want to mess with Fendi - or Karl Lagerfeld.
Do you think the designs are too close for comfort?
UPDATE: Kardashian took to her blog to respond. "What stores like Bebe do is take runway fashion and use it as inspiration to create pieces that are wearable and accessible for everyone," she said. "To say any of our pieces are a knock off is like saying every item in every clothing store in your mall is a knock off."
