Kim Kardashian is expanding her popular beauty range with a new lipstick line.

The reality TV star went into partnership with cosmetics manufacturer Seed Beauty for her KKW Beauty collection last year (17), with her contour kits, highlighters and eyeshadow palettes all selling out.

Now, Kim has announced that she is following her younger sister Kylie Jenner into the lipstick business and is gearing up to launch a range of lip products.

“OMG (Oh my God) I’ve been wearing these for months now!” she captioned a close-up photo of her sporting a light brown lipstick on her Instagram page on Tuesday (29May18). “My favourite Nude lipsticks & lip liners launching June 8th kkwbeauty.com. The creamiest long-lasting lipstick formula.”

Kim went on to explain that the line will include eight lipsticks and three lipliners. She added that she couldn’t wait for fans to see the packaging, and also uploaded a preview video on her KKW Beauty account giving followers a sneak peek at the lip colours, which appear to include a light pink, a mauve-based hue with glossy and a mid-brown shade.

Previously, Kim teamed on a four-piece liquid lipstick collection for Kylie Cosmetics and created a nude cream lipstick named Classic K as part of her limited-edition line with her make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians personality often sports nude lip colours to red carpet events, with Mario recently explaining that Classic K was a mix of some of his favourite neutral tones.

“I’ve always had these nude lip palettes and I would mix a bunch of colours by hand to create her lip shade,” he told People last month. “It always turns out to be a similar colour that she really loves and that I really love on her. So we recreated that colour that I have been mixing for so many years into the Classic K lipstick. It’s definitely going to become the staple lipstick for whoever buys it and loves the Kim K nude lip.”

Natural beauty Elizabeth Hurley ‘too scared’ to have plastic surgery

Elizabeth Hurley is adamant her good looks are all natural and not down to a plastic surgeon.

At 52, the actress and model is still regarded as one of the most beautiful women in the world, a feat she insists is all her own.

Talking to Grazia magazine about ageing, The Royals star admitted she was far too frightened to go under the knife, so instead has opted to grow old gracefully.

“Plastic surgery? I’d be too scared. Fillers? Forget about it,” she shuddered, adding: “But I have had Botox for my forehead.”

And it’s not just her face that looks good, but her body too. Elizabeth regularly posts bikini snaps on her Instagram page, modelling swimwear from her Elizabeth Hurley Beach label.

It was recently reported that the star’s 16-year-old son Damian, her son from her fling with businessman Steve Bing, is “mortified” by her “sexy” selfies – something Elizabeth denies.

“That’s all fiction!” the brunette beauty laughed. “My son is incredibly supportive of me and my beachwear business and of me as an actor and the breadwinner of our family of two. I often show them to him before I post them because he’s youth, he knows what people like. In fact, when he was little he used to try and persuade me to wear long couture dresses to parents’ evening, instead of my Uggs and tracksuit. No, he loved the glamour!”

As for her health and fitness regime, the Estee Lauder spokesmodel explained that she’s not a slave to diet and exercise and stated: “I’m not a vegan who lives on green juices, I don’t go to the gym religiously.”

However, she is more than happy to represent older women, and praised the decision of Estee Lauder bosses to carry on featuring her in campaigns.

“It’s really important for 50-something women to see other 50-year-old women. I don’t feel there’s a cut-off anymore when you’re no longer relevant and can’t work,” she shared.

Paris Jackson: ‘I did not storm out of Dior fashion show’

Paris Jackson has insisted that she didn’t “storm out” of Dior’s fashion show recently, but left quietly because she was “heartbroken” over how they allegedly treated the horses.

The 20-year-old was one of the famous faces at the fashion house’s Spring/Summer 2019 Cruise Collection presentation at the Chantilly Stables in France on Friday (25May18), where some of the models rode side-saddle on horses.

Some reports emerged from the show suggesting Paris “huffed out barefoot” and “stalked out in a rage” as the first model appeared on the runway, and Paris addressed the speculation on Twitter on Tuesday night (29May18).

“To be clear, i did not ‘storm out’ of the show,” she wrote. “I quietly got up and walked out trying my hardest to not cause a scene, because i do not support animals being branded and whipped. not trying to become enemies in the fashion world in any way, but i will always be myself.

“Furthermore, i was not ‘enraged,’ just taken by surprise and a little heartbroken. and i have no doubt that all high end fashion brands will soon switch over to no-fur and anti animal cruelty, as that seems to be the pattern here. and we should all be very excited about that!”

Michael Jackson’s daughter had previously confirmed she left the show early by sharing a picture on Instagram of herself standing outside the venue looking up to the sky as it rained, while wearing the multi-coloured printed dress and black leather bag with a rainbow-striped strap that she posed in before the presentation. However, she had removed her red heels and was stood in the rain barefoot.

Paris, who reportedly follows a cruelty-free diet and uses her social media presence to campaign for animal welfare, wrote in the caption, “left early n did this,” with a storm emoji.

Tennis ace Serena Williams has added designer to her resume after launching a new fashion collection as she returns to the court for the first time since 2017.

The sportswoman and model turned her back on tennis after falling pregnant with her first child, and she took a year off to focus on becoming a mum.

But she was back on the court at the French Open earlier this week (beg28May18), sporting a sleek black catsuit as she took on Kristyna Pliskova – and won. And now Serena is hoping to make a big splash in the style pool after announcing her new fashion collection, Serena, on Wednesday (30May18).

“They say life is about timing,” she writes on Instagram. “I learned this lesson at age 18, when I chose to play a light tennis schedule because I wanted to go to fashion school. Some criticised my decision, but I knew I had two loves – tennis and fashion – and had to find a way to make them coexist.

“After 15 years of false starts, and people in fashion telling me “no”, it only only drove me to work harder. As a result, I discovered what it meant to invest in myself, and I allowed that belief in myself to drive me to reach my dream.

“Today, I am proud to launch @serena, my own online shop. Never stop believing in yourself, you’re worth it.”

Her first 12-piece collection will be available on serenawilliams.com. Additional items will be released later this year (18).

Meanwhile, unseeded Serena will meet Ashleigh Barty in the next round of the French Open on Thursday (31May18). The tennis superstar and her sister Venus have also moved on in the women’s doubles tournament after beating Japan’s Shuko Aoyama and Miyu Kato on Wednesday (30May18).

Coco Austin still breastfeeding ‘for comfort’

Ice-T’s reality star wife Coco Austin is still breastfeeding the couple’s two-and-a-half-year-old daughter.

Coco has opened up about the joys and lows of motherhood via Instagram, under a photo of her kid, Chanel, lying on mum’s chest.

“I follow some mother impowering (sic) pages here on Instagram and I love the inspiring pics they post showing the tenderness and love between a mother and child with or without nursing moments…,” she captioned the sweet shot. “I love that I can be a part of that. @babychanelnicole has made me a more sensitive person now that I’m older.”

The post prompted responses from followers, with one asking Coco if she still breastfeeds her child.

“Yep, but it’s more for comfort now,” she wrote.

Fans were quick to comment on the revelation with some applauding Coco, who previously shared a breastfeeding video when Coco was 15 months old, for continuing to bond with her daughter, while others were concerned she was still nursing almost three years after giving birth.

Late last year (17), the glamour model revealed she had managed to keep her weight in check after giving birth thanks to the “human liposuction” her daughter Chanel provides.

“I call Chanel my human liposuction!” Coco told Life & Style magazine. “I was a lot bigger, then when I got pregnant with her (and) she sucked the fat out of me. I was like, ‘What the heck? I need to be pregnant my whole life!’ Then when I had her, that’s when the weight came back on. It easily came on faster – but now that I’m a mum I don’t (worry) so much about being in shape… I’m a mother. I don’t need to have zero per cent (body) fat.”

Jessica Alba ups her workouts so she can be more like Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson has inspired Jessica Alba to get back in shape after becoming a mum for the third time.

The Sin City star gave birth to son Hayes on New Year’s Eve (31Dec17) and admits getting fit again has been a nightmare, because she hates working out.

And then a chance meeting with Hudson, who is pregnant with her third child, made her rethink her priorities.

“That s**t (working out) is hard,” she tells InStyle magazine. “Working out is not easy, but I’m doing it. I’m dropping a name here, but I was with Kate Hudson, and she’s so fit! And I was like, ‘You work out every day?’ And she said, ‘Of course I do’.

“I was just like, ‘F**k, man, she doesn’t even question it, so I shouldn’t question it either’.”

Jessica is trying to get back into shape so she’ll look and feel great as she promotes her new TV police drama LA’s Finest.

She has paired up with Gabrielle Union for the Bad Boys spin-off, which is currently in limbo after NBC network bosses passed on the project.

The actresses teamed up to shoot a pilot for the police drama in March (18), just three months after Jessica became a mother for the third time, but TV executives have since decided not to move forward with the series.

Despite the NBC snub, all is not lost – the project is currently being shopped to other networks.

LA’s Finest centres on Special Agent Syd Burnett, Gabrielle’s free-spirited character in 2003 movie Bad Boys II, as she starts a new life as a Los Angeles detective, partnered with working single mum Nancy McKenna, played by Jessica.

The series reunited Union with Bad Boys franchise producer Jerry Bruckheimer, while the two leading ladies also serve as executive producers on the show.

Viktor & Rolf are celebrating 25 years in business with a celebratory exhibition in Rotterdam.

The Dutch fashion duo is the subject of a new retrospective at the Kunsthal museum in their home nation’s city, which seeks to honour the brand’s reputation for bridging the divide between fashion and art and popular avant-garde designs. And Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren are delighted to have an opportunity to welcome fans into their world.

“With this exhibition we want to present our notion of wearable art,” the pair explained in an interview with Wallpaper. “It showcases a selection of our work as Fashion Artists – highlighting the most iconic, sculptural and bold looks. We hope the visitors will feel engaged on many levels. We strive to make work that is complex, not one-dimensional.”

Hoping that visitors will feel “moved and inspired” by the display, Viktor & Rolf’s retrospective will occupy five galleries in the museum and consist of over 60 haute couture pieces and stage costumes. One gallery is also dedicated to original sketches detailing the brand’s creations over the past 25 years.

“This exhibition shows you that they work in the opposite way to other fashion designers; they really are fashion artists,” enthused curator Thierry-Maxime Loriot, who previously helmed a popular exhibition dedicated to French designer Jean Paul Gaultier. “Contemporary fashion in the Netherlands was almost non-existent before Viktor & Rolf. They are the ones who opened the door to fashion in the Netherlands and were the first to gain international recognition. They changed the rules of fashion on how it should be perceived, presented and understood.”

Viktor & Rolf: Fashion Artists 25 Years is open to the public until 30 September (18).

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has launched her own beauty website, Rose Inc..

The model hinted she was working on a make-up project through a series of teaser Instagram posts early last week (21May18), and the results of her work went live online on Tuesday (29May18).

As well as products tried and tested by Rosie herself, Rose Inc. will also feature editorial content such as personal interviews and make-up tutorials, with the former Victoria’s Secret Angel keen to divulge all the tricks of the supermodel trade.

“This outlet is my way of sharing everything that I’ve gleaned over the years,” the 31-year-old wrote in a welcome letter on the website. “Timeless make-up tricks that instantly make you feel like your best self. Products and regimens that can get you glowing, and stat. Ways to turn a bad hair day into a great ponytail day, or what to do when dinner with friends calls for the perfect glam look. And, of course, a glimpse into some of my friends’ make-up bags. Babes, it’s all here.”

However, the fashion icon, who has been inspired by celebrity brands like Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty and Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop, insisted that she didn’t want the platform to be treated as a “rule book” but rather “your best girlfriend’s notebook.”

Rosie, who admitted some of her favourite times at work were when she was sat in the make-up chair, revealed the desire to pursue her love of beauty stemmed from a feeling that emerged in the latter stages of her pregnancy.

“Towards the very end of my pregnancy, I had this urge to be really creative,” the mother-of-one, who welcomed son Jack with fiance Jason Statham just over 11 months ago, explained to Vogue U.S. “In many ways, I feel like my whole career has led up to this point. I want the (Rose Inc.) content to feel inclusive and positive—(because) that’s the only way I like to work.”

Stuart Weitzman executive sues Tapestry over sexual harassment claims

A senior Stuart Weitzman employee has filed a lawsuit against Tapestry, Inc and one of its former creative directors over sexual harassment allegations.

Last week (ends27May18), bosses at shoe brand Weitzman, owned by parent company Tapestry, announced that Giovanni Morelli had parted ways, citing issues with his behaviour in the workplace.

Now, details of how Morelli apparently “fell short” of standards have emerged, with Weitzman’s vice president of product development footwear, Thomas Gibb, alleging in documents filed in a Manhattan state court that the designer had repeatedly harassed him.

In the complaint, Gibb stated that he had endured “unwanted touchings” and an “endless” stream of sexually explicit comments from Morelli.

The harassment allegedly included “sexually charged conversation and innuendo into the workplace, making those around him, including Mr. Gibb, extremely uncomfortable”.

Further, Gibb claimed that during a design team meeting in Spain, Morelli constantly touched his body and legs, drew “vulgar and obscene drawings” on a whiteboard in his office and also asked him whether he would “ever consider not being straight?”

The court documents also stated that Gibb had complained about Morelli’s behaviour to Weitzman’s human resources department but his “complaints were ignored entirely”. He is seeking an unspecified amount of damages, punitive damages and attorneys’ fees.

Morelli has not yet commented on the lawsuit. However, a Tapestry representative told The Hollywood Reporter: “While we historically have not commented on pending litigation, we can confirm that the Wigdor firm, representing Mr. Gibb, wrote to our General Counsel on May 15, 2018. On that date, the Company commenced an investigation which ultimately resulted in the announcement on May 21, 2018, regarding the resignation of Giovanni Morelli.”

Morelli joined Weitzman as creative director in May 2017 and presented his first two collections in February.
