Kanye West gave Kim Kardashian “bad anxiety” ahead of the 2019 Met Gala by revealing he didn’t love her sexy look.

The reality TV star stunned at the annual event in a custom wet-look Thierry Mugler beige dress – which, after eight months of preparation, her Yeezy mogul husband wasn’t a fan of.

“Like the corset, underwear, all that vibe, I just feel like I just went through this transition of being a rapper, and lookin’ at all these girls… I didn’t realise that that was affecting like my soul and my spirit,” he said in Sunday’s instalment of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

After adding he’s not that into his wife showing off her body now that he’s “someone that’s married and in love and the father of what’s about to be four kids”, Kim fired back: “The night before you’re going to come in here and say you’re not into the corset look?

“You’re giving me really bad anxiety… I don’t need any more negative energy.”

While the rapper insisted it “affects” him when his wife’s pictures are “too sexy”, the KKW Beauty mogul told him: “You built me up to be a sexy person and have confidence! Just because you’re on a journey and you’re in a transformation, doesn’t mean I’m in the same spot with you!”

Ending the argument, Kanye calmly said, “Okay” and walked out of the room, as a stunned Kim said to her friends: “That’s absolutely ridiculous.”

Elsewhere in the episode, Kim worried about how she’d fare going to the bathroom in the tight-fitting number, suggesting: “Honestly, if it’s an emergency, I think I pee my pants and then have my sister wipe my leg up.”

Kim Kardashian will always be thankful to Zac Posen for introducing her to high fashion.

As one of the most photographed women in the world, the reality TV personality undoubtedly has access to any clothing brand she desires.

However, in an interview with her husband Kanye West for the September 2019 issue of Vogue Arabia, Kardashian explained that she will always have a soft spot for New York-based designer Posen.

“Zac Posen, who was the first designer with a fashion house to believe in me when nobody did. He invited me to the CFDA Awards (in 2010) and I remember him saying to me, ‘Kim, I see this in you, can you please trust me?’ He wanted me to wear minimal make-up. I was so uncomfortable and, of course, showed up with a full face,” she shared. “That night he introduced me to Karl Lagerfeld and I sat next to (designer) Rachel Roy. I remember being so nervous and intimidated because I knew no one. Rachel was so nice, she told me who was who and introduced me to so many people.”

Kardashian has undergone a major style transformation since she began dating West in 2012 and often credits the rapper with inspiring her to be more daring with fashion.

As well as collaborating with her husband, the 38-year-old also has fond memories of working alongside Manfred Thierry Mugler, who created her crystal-studded beige Latex look for the 2019 Met Gala, Alexander Wang, Riccardo Tisci, and fashion editors Anna Wintour and Carine Roitfeld, as well as the late Karl Lagerfeld.

“I will always remember my shoot with Karl Lagerfeld that Carine styled – he wanted very specific sheets for a shot that we did so he sent someone to his own home so that we could use them,” the star added.

Kendall Jenner is amazed by her niece North West’s “creative” sense of style.

The model made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday night, where host Jimmy asked her about pictures showing her and North wearing similar feather tops from Prada. Kendall clarified that they were totally different garments, but went onto praise six-year-old North, the daughter of her sister Kim Kardashian and rapper Kanye West.

“Oh my God, for sure. She’s obsessed,” she commented when asked about whether North loves clothes. “And she’s so good at it. It’s crazy, she does all her outfits now. And Kanye just buys her all these fun clothes, and Kim as well. It’s so cool. She’s really creative and it’s really fun to watch.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Kendall participated in a round of a game called Pour It Out, where she revealed that she thinks Brad Pitt and Rihanna would make the perfect couple.

“I feel like they’re so gorgeous,” the 23-year-old gushed, before detailing an awkward encounter with the Fight Club star at one of Kanye’s recent Sunday Service gospel gatherings.

“I literally just saw Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and it was so good and he just like gets better with age… and I’m like, ‘I gotta go,'” she recalled.

When Jimmy asked if she left because she didn’t want to meet him, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians personality insisted: “No, isn’t there a saying don’t meet your superhero whatever… I don’t know, I just love him so much, I’m like, I’m just gonna leave it at that and leave. I get nervous.”

Kim Kardashian was more nervous for 2019 Met Gala than her wedding

Kim Kardashian found preparing for the 2019 Met Gala much more “nerve-wracking” than her wedding to Kanye West.

The TV personality turned heads at the camp-themed fashion event in May, when she turned up in a custom-made skin-tight beaded dress which was covered in droplet-shaped crystals that designer Thierry Mugler had come out of retirement to create for her. 

But in spite of attending the prestigious gala several times before, in a new teaser clip for her family’s reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim explained she was feeling more anxious about the event than she did before her wedding to rapper Kanye in Florence, Italy in May 2014.  

“It’s the morning of the Met, and I just keep on saying, ‘I don’t know why I have such anxiety for the Met, I feel this sense of pressure, responsibility,'” she commented to her make-up artists and glam squad. “This is like probably as nerve-wracking as my wedding like I don’t know why I get so nervous for the Met. Maybe even more so, just because there’s pictures from every single angle.” 

Kim went on to note that she also felt a lot of pressure to achieve Thierry’s vision, especially as working with the Frenchman was a “dream come true”.  

“It’s a huge responsibility for me because he, I’m sure after not designing for 20 years, wants it to be something magical and special and new… I just want it to be perfect,” the 38-year-old mused.  

In the clip, Kim was also shown participating in a group prayer circle with her team as they cinched her into the tight corset of her dress, which the mother-of-four previously revealed required her to undertake special breathing lessons to wear.  

To conclude the teaser, the star reflected on the different Met Galas she has attended over the years, including her first time when she was “just Kanye’s plus one” in 2013, before receiving her own invitation the following year after appearing on the April 2014 cover of U.S. Vogue with her beau.  

“I’m gonna say, ‘Year seven: cover girl. We officially made it,'” she smiled, referring to her April 2019 cover of the fashion publication.

Olivier Rousteing spends eight hours a day on social media

Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing spends eight hours a day on social media.

The French designer, who joined the luxury label in 2011, updates his Instagram account frequently every day, updating his 5.4 million followers on many aspects of his life, from his work to his morning routine and his encounters with celebrity friends like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

In a new interview with London’s Evening Standard, Rousteing admitted that his passion for Instagram takes up a significant portion of his time – he spends between seven and eight hours a day on social media and uses an average of five filters on each selfie.

“The clothes on the runway are just 10 per cent (of the job),” he explained. “You have to explain what your world is. You need to have something to say. I would rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I’m not.”

The 33-year-old, who is the most-followed French fashion designer on the site, used his personal platform to help boost Balmain’s social media following and it subsequently became the first luxury fashion house to hit the million-follower mark.

However, when he first started at the company, executives weren’t sold on his social media strategy.

“I was so young when I started at the brand, I thought let’s share something that the others (creative directors) don’t want to share,” he added. “Working for a French luxury house, people asked, ‘Is it luxury to share so much on social media?’ I was like, ‘If you are OK to sell luxury on the Internet, you should be fine with social media.’ Because it’s the future.”

While he consciously cultivates an Instagram feed that gives the impression of a glam jet-setting lifestyle surrounded by celebrities, Rousteing insisted it’s far from the truth.

Kanye West has asked funnyman Danny McBride to play him in a movie about his life.

The 42-year-old opened up about his newfound friendship with the rapper during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday. And the actor revealed he connected with the Yeezy mogul, 42, when Kanye called to welcome him to his new home in Charleston, South Carolina.

“I had a pretty interesting guest shortly after we moved there,” the star recalled. “One day I got a phone call out of nowhere and the voice sounded familiar, but I wasn’t sure who it was. I was like, ‘Hello?’ and he was like, ‘Hey, is Danny there?’ He was like, ‘This is Kanye West’.

“I thought it was a joke. (But) he basically said that he was a fan of mine and wanted to come hang out.”

He went on to share the Gold Digger star jetted to his new home, where the pair met up and went out for a boat ride together, and later returned to McBride’s house, where they watched his seven-year-old son Declan play online video game Fortnite.

The duo quickly got creative, however, and the Eastbound & Down star revealed the pair began plotting a biopic about the rapper’s life – with Danny in the leading role.

“He had an idea for a project that I think was a pretty brilliant idea,” he recounted. “He wanted to do a movie about the story of his life and he wanted me to play him… (It was) the most incredible afternoon.”

Kanye West attempting to trademark Sunday Service merchandise

Kanye West has filed an application to trademark merchandise that was inspired by his Sunday Service set at the Coachella festival.

The rapper and designer staged his uplifting weekly gospel session on a hillside on Easter Sunday for festivalgoers in California back in April, alongside a choir and numerous dancers, who were all dressed in merchandise.

The Stronger hitmaker sold religious merchandise from the special Sunday Service, including $50 (£40) socks that read “Jesus Walks”, and faded, tie-dye sweaters emblazoned with the words “Holy Spirit” and “Sunday Service the Mountain” that ranged from $165 (£132) to $225 (£180).

The 42-year-old recently filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to trademark the phrase Sunday Service. The application was made by Mascotte Holdings, Inc., the same firm that previously filed trademarks for Yandhi, Yeezus, Yeezy, Calabasas Clothing and Kanye West on the Grammy winner’s behalf.

If his request is granted, Kanye will be the only person allowed to sell clothing, including dresses, footwear, jackets, loungewear, scarves, shirts, socks and tops, under the phrase.

The Sunday Service, which he hosts with various members of his wife Kim Kardashian’s extended family, are weekly events and feature an exclusive guest list of famous faces. Kim also streams the service live on her Instagram Stories, or shares clips from the event, which now includes her and Kanye’s six-year-old daughter North performing in the choir.

According to the New York Post’s Page Six column, the Gold Digger hitmaker also filed an application to use the phrase “Half Beast” for a rumoured TV or online entertainment venture that may include toys.

Kim Kardashian is facing backlash from Japanese fans after choosing to call her new shapewear line Kimono.

The reality TV personality revealed Kimono Solutionwear, a collection of skin-tone coloured control underwear in a post on Instagram on Tuesday, telling fans she was inspired to create her own shapewear after spending years cutting up Spanx to make her own styles.

“Kimono is my take on shapewear and solutions for women that actually work,” Kim wrote. “I would always cut up my shapewear to make my own styles, and there have also been so many times I couldn’t find a shapewear colour that blended with my skin tone so we needed a solution for all of this.”

But many of Kim’s followers criticised the star for choosing the name of a traditional Japanese garment for her line, with #KimOhNo quickly trending.

“I did not have my boobs flattened by 2 obaasan (grandmothers) so I wouldn’t be showing ANY curves for you to name your SHAPEWEAR Kimono. The effing irony and disrespect! Stop appropriating cultures for your capitalistic gain!” one wrote, while another added: “Wow, @KimKardashian. Thanks for BUTCHERING Japanese culture!!! My culture is not your plaything. You don’t have any respect for people who are not your family, do you? In the 15 yrs developing this project, couldn’t you find a cultural advisor?”

Meanwhile, Japanese woman Yuka Ohishi added to the BBC: “We wear kimonos to celebrate health, growth of children, engagements, marriages, graduations, at funerals. It’s celebratory wear and passed on in families through the generations. This shapewear doesn’t even resemble a kimono – she just chose a word that has Kim in it – there’s no respect to what the garment actually means in our culture.”

Kim has yet to respond to the criticism.

Self-confessed Spanx fan Kim Kardashian has unveiled her very own line of shapewear. 

The reality TV star launched Kimono, a collection of skin tone-coloured controlling underwear, in a post on Instagram on Tuesday.

Sharing a series of images from the campaign, Kim is seen posing in an all-in-one bodysuit, and in the accompanying caption, she explained that she was inspired to create her own shapewear after spending years cutting up her Spanx.

“Kimono is my take on shapewear and solutions for women that actually work,” the 38-year-old wrote. “I would always cut up my shapewear to make my own styles, and there have also been so many times I couldn’t find a shapewear colour that blended with my skin tone so we needed a solution for all of this.”

The images were shot by Vanessa Beecroft – who has worked with Kim’s husband Kanye West on several projects – and show the cosmetics mogul alongside models wearing different Kimono pieces, including bodysuits, bras, underwear and an eye-catching one-legged bike short.

Kim noted that the bike short, dubbed the solution short, was created because she still wanted support when wearing a dress or a skirt with a thigh-high split.

A launch date has not yet been revealed, but the pieces will be available in sizes ranging from XXS to 4XL and will be offered in nine shades.

This is Kim’s first venture into fashion and comes just days after she launched her new body foundation for her KKW Beauty brand.

However, the mother-of-four has faced criticism on social media for not being size-inclusive in her campaign images.

“She says ‘for every body’ but the only bodies shown are what society wants,” one wrote user wrote, while another commented, “If you need a 4X model, I’m here!”

Anna Wintour approves of Rihanna’s ‘simple’ fashion line

Anna Wintour has given her seal of approval to Rihanna’s clothing line.

The U.S. Vogue editor-in-chief is one of the most important figures in the fashion world, and over the course of her career, has been praised for her ability to spot trends and discover designers.

Now, Wintour has praised Rihanna for launching her high-end Fenty range in partnership with executives at LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, with the collection including menswear-inspired separates and lots of denim.

“Well, obviously if anyone can be successful at designing clothing, it’s going to be Rihanna. So, I am certain that that will be a huge success for LVMH,” she said in a new interview for her Go Ask Anna video series. “But there are other popstars over the years that have had equal success. Look at Pharrell (Williams) or Victoria Beckham. Or indeed, Kanye West. When we look at Rihanna’s collection, one might be surprised how simple it is. She’s not looking to be the trend of the month. She’s looking for clothes that have a life and that you can wear again and again which is very much in-step with, I think, the way that fashion is going right now with sustainability. And as always with Rihanna, she is always in-step with the moment.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Wintour was asked about her own wardrobe, and she noted that she loves printed dresses and Manolo Blahnik footwear. She surprisingly also confessed she “loves a flip-flop” and predicts cross-body handbags will be a major trend.

“To be honest, I rarely wear a handbag, but I am told by my team here at Vogue that it’s all about the cross-body handbag. Which makes a lot of sense to me because it’s practical, hands-free. You can bicycle around Manhattan enjoying Central Park and they also come in every shape, size, fabrication, so that would be my tip for the season,” the 69-year-old smiled.
