Kendall Jenner was confused by the original name of Kim Kardashian’s shapewear line.

The reality TV star came under fire in June when she announced the launch of her solutionwear line, Kimono, with many people accusing her of being insensitive and disrespectful to Japanese culture, and she subsequently dropped Kimono and rebranded the line as SKIMS in August.

In an interview with New York Magazine, the 39-year-old revealed that her half-sister Kendall came to her after the backlash and explained that the original name had been rather baffling.

“After the fact, Kendall was saying to me, ‘But I was so confused by the name Kimono because it’s, like, are you selling kimonos? You’re selling underwear.’ And I was like, ‘I just didn’t even put two and two together.’ I thought, ‘I love the name Kimono,'” Kim admitted.

The KKW Beauty mogul previously insisted that she had “innocent intentions” when she picked the name and she repeated her stance in the interview to respond to those who have accused her of using Kimono as a publicity stunt.

“We didn’t think about it, you know? Now, people come to us and say, ‘Oh, you guys planned that, didn’t you? That was too good of a buzz,'” she recalled. “I was like, ‘Yeah, I wish.’ Like, I have millions of garments I’m stuck with. I would never try to offend a culture or lose out on all this potential product.

“And not one retailer, not one person we went to, said that they thought we might have a problem, including my friends and business partners, some of whom are Asian.”

Kim decided to rebrand her shapewear line after two million garments had been made with the Kimono logo printed inside and she previously shared a video of her trying to come up with ways to re-label the clothes with the SKIMS name.

Kendall Jenner is to executive produce a new series about her “twin brother” Kirby Jenner.

The model will develop a show centring on a parody Instagram account in which the fictitious social media personality named Kirby is digitally inserted into her images.

Kendall has signed up her mum, Kris Jenner, to co-produce the series, which will air on new streaming platform Quibi.

“I’m thrilled that Quibi viewers will get an inside look at the life of my twin brother and he’ll finally have the opportunity to shine in this series,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star said in a tongue-in-cheek statement.

The short-term small screen venture, titled Kirby Jenner, will be developed by The Babysitter director McG, Howie Mandel, and Ryan Seacrest.

Meanwhile, Kirby has also taken to Instagram to share his excitement over the news.

“Umm I guess I have my own @quibi show now?? We’re gonna call it ‘Kirby Jenner’ cause it’s easy for me to remember and mom said, ‘It’s fine.’ #KirbyOnQuibi #ComingSoon,” he wrote.

Kendall, 24, has long followed Kirby’s Instagram account, which currently boasts 1.2 million fans. Previously, the performance artist has received Webby and Shorty Awards nominations in the social humour, best photography, and parody accounts categories.

It is not known when the show will begin airing, but Quibi is set to officially launch on 6 April 2020.

Alexander Wang, Cara Delevingne, Zac Efron, and Joe Jonas are also working on projects for the short-form mobile video platform.

Kendall Jenner recites positive mantra during acne flare-ups

Kendall Jenner recites a positive mantra to herself every morning when she suffers an acne breakout.

The model became the face of skincare brand Proactiv last year, and at the time, revealed she has been battling the skin condition since her early teens.

In a new interview with Teen Vogue, she opened up about how she’s finally got her acne under control, and when she wakes up to a breakout on her face, she tries to stay positive.

“If you’re really just having a day where your skin is just not looking great for you, I do this thing every morning where I say five positive words about myself that have nothing to do with anybody else,” Kendall commented. “That always makes me feel better. Sometimes you just have to look at yourself in the mirror and talk to yourself as corny as it sounds, it really does lift you up.”

The 24-year-old also said she ignores her acne, and tries to not focus her energy on worrying about how she looks.

“I know I found myself on days where I had pretty bad flare-ups, I would kind of just try and forget about it, and almost act as if it wasn’t there. Even though, obviously, I knew it was, and everyone around me knew it was,” the model explained. “If you just put that energy into it, it ends up being not much of a thing. But when you’re self-conscious about it, then everyone starts looking.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Kendall shared how since her acne confession, she’s built up a supportive community around her, who can share the daily ups and downs of living with the skin condition.

“Everyone else that struggles, we can all connect on it, and share tips, and secrets, and tricks, and all those things,” she stated.

Shoppers have queued for hours to purchase items from the sought-after Giambattista Valli x H&M collection.

Bosses at the Swedish retailer announced in May that they were teaming with the Italian designer on a capsule collection, with the line including fresh takes on Valli’s signature tulle dresses, gemstone-studded cardigans, ruffled tops, and embroidered coats.

The range went on sale online and in H&M boutiques on Thursday morning, with keen fans lining up around the block to get their hands on their favourite pieces in London.

“Every year I amaze myself with how quickly I can get up & to the Tube station when it involves @hm designer collabs…,” one user wrote on Twitter.

But while the red tulle dress Kendall Jenner models in the campaign sold out almost immediately, others were disappointed to miss out on their other top choices.

“In the queue since 7:50 and everything’s out of stock??!! How is that literally possible?” another asked.

At present, a number of pieces are still available to buy on the H&M website, though the short pink tulle dress, a sparkly minidress, a black ballgown with a sheer top, and black belt with lip motif are out of stock. Clothing and accessories are priced between $16 – $386 (£12.99 – £299.99).

Speaking about the partnership ahead of the launch, Valli commented, “I am excited about this collaboration: H&M gives me the opportunity to bring my vision of style and my celebration of beauty to a wider audience. The goal is to share my love for beauty and to be able to be part of everyone’s ‘happy moments’, to help create love stories all around the world.”

Off-White tops The Lyst Index’s rankings of hottest brands

Off-White has been crowned as the hottest brand in the world in The Lyst Index’s latest rankings.

The label, founded by designer Virgil Abloh in 2012, is known for its stylised streetwear-inspired items which feature the use of quotation marks, zip ties, and industrial buckles, with celebrity fans including Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Hailey Bieber, JAY-Z, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna.

Now, researchers have compiled data from the fashion platform Lyst for the third quarter of 2019 and claimed Off-White has come out on top in relation to global Lyst and Google search data, conversion rates and sales, as well as brand and product social media mentions and engagement statistics worldwide.

Balenciaga, helmed by creative director Demna Gvasalia, was the runner-up, while Gucci fell back two spots in comparison to last quarter and landed in third place.

Other luxury brands in the top 10 included Versace, Prada, Valentino, Fendi, Burberry, Saint Laurent, and Vetements, while notable additions to the top 20 this quarter were Bottega Veneta and Loewe.

Since Daniel Lee joined Bottega Veneta in June 2018, the Italian fashion house has undergone a huge revamp, with the designer winning acclaim for his minimalist designs and Stretch sandals, which immediately sold out upon release following the launch of the label’s pre-fall 2019 collection.

“Daniel Lee has brought incredible energy to the evolution of Bottega Veneta and the reaction has been extraordinary,” Dario Gargiulo, chief marketing officer of Bottega Veneta, said of the brand’s transformation. “Free from any desire to become the hottest brand in the world, our focus is on the beauty and power of subtlety. We forego extensive explanation about our brand in favour of simply being visible and present across the current multicultural landscape.”

Among the most popular products were Bottega Veneta’s padded sandals, Adidas Continental 80 sneakers, Jacquemus’ pocket-sized Le Chiquito bag, Paco Rabanne’s reissued 1969 metal shoulder bag, Fendi’s FF motif bikini, and Mansur Gavriel’s cloud print sweater.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West don’t want North wearing make-up at young age

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have agreed to ban their daughter North West from wearing make-up until she’s older.

The KKW Beauty mogul has come under fire for letting her six-year-old daughter wear a slick of lipstick or eyeshadow sometimes in the past, but the rapper recently took a stand and banned North from wearing any cosmetics until she’s older.

According to Kim, Kanye’s decision hasn’t gone down well, but they’ve ultimately come to realise it’s the right call.

“North is trying to get in on the make-up but she’s being blocked heavily because her dad has stopped all make-up for her until she is a teenager,” she told E! News. “It’s a big discussion, a big fight in the household right now but it is what’s best.

“I think as a parent you just learn and figure it out as you go, and we realised we didn’t really want her to wear make-up at a young age. But she sees her mom putting on lipstick and lip gloss.”

In September, the 39-year-old told the publication that she “got in trouble” with Kanye for letting North have the lip kits from her half-sister Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics range.

“I think he had it, he changed all the rules. I’d let her wear, you know, she has a little red for Christmas, I’d let her wear a red lip, or I’d let her do one pop of something,” the TV personality explained. “I’d let her if she’s wearing a black dress, a black lip. Kylie would give her all of these lip kits, so I kind of got in trouble for that. So, it’s now no more make-up.”

Elsewhere, the star also shared that she and Kanye have “multiple costumes” lined up for Halloween.

Kylie Jenner has dressed her daughter Stormi Webster in a mini version of her purple outfit from the 2019 Met Gala for a Halloween party.

The beauty mogul wore the extravagant Versace gown to the annual event back in May, with the dress featuring huge feathered sleeves, a bodice made of flesh-toned fabric, and silvery embroidery.

Now, Kylie has decided to replicate her opulent look into a tiny version for her 20-month-old daughter for Halloween, complete with a feather boa and purple wig.

“My baby!!!!!!!! i cant handle this!!!! (sic)” the 22-year-old wrote alongside two pictures and a video on Instagram on Sunday, showing Stormi toddling around while wearing the dress.

Sofia Richie was among one of the thousands commenting on the sweet post, writing: “Omg (oh my God) I can’t deal.”

Stormi’s father Travis Scott, who recently split from Kylie, left a love heart emoji, while Vanessa Hudgens, Kris Jenner’s boyfriend Corey Gamble and Paris Hilton also shared their love for the tot in the comments section.

Kylie continued the Halloween celebrations with her friend Stassie Karanikolaou, and the duo sent social media into meltdown over the weekend when they shared pictures of them dressed as Madonna and Britney Spears.

The reality TV personality who was impersonating the Material Girl hitmaker, leaned in for a kiss with Stassie, who was dressed as Britney, to recreate the iconic moment from the MTV Video Music Awards in 2003 when the singers kissed on stage.

Kendall Jenner feels “powerful” whenever she wears a piece from her friend Giambattista Valli’s new H&M collaboration.

The model has been tapped to front the campaign for the Italian designer’s highly anticipated collection for the Swedish high-street retailer, which will officially launch next month.

And Kendall, who also serves as a muse for the 53-year-old, is excited for the public to be able to wear Giambattista’s luxurious designs for a fraction of the price.

“I love the dramatic yet accessible silhouettes; they make me feel powerful and effortless, which is what being fabulous is all about, in my opinion,” she said in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar. “It’s also the personal touches throughout the collection that make me really connect to the pieces. It’s like wearing a little piece of Giamba himself.

“When you see his clothes and then get to wear them, it really has an effect on you but at the same time, you totally feel like yourself. That’s a special skill and a gift to the rest of us.”

The capsule collection features menswear and womenswear, with highlights including an extravagant red tulle dress and a delicately embroidered flowered gown.

“It’s all so beautiful. The level of detail is incredible, which is very Giambattista Valli, but there’s also this wonderful high-low mix of pieces that includes embellished sweatshirts and really fun jewellery,” the 23-year-old shared. “It’s going to be so amazing to see all these people around the world wearing the collection. I love the idea that the Valli universe is expanding and joining forces with H&M.”

The Giambattista Valli x H&M range will hit stores on 7 November.

Khloe Kardashian’s cast-off designer clothes have sold out in minutes after the reality star offered up the items as part of an online closet sale.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians personality offered up dresses and outfits alongside shoes and handbags used by her sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall and Kylie Jenner via the new online store Kardashian Kloset – and the sale was an instant hit.

Khloe’s pieces were all purchased immediately, including a Charlotte Olympia leopard print blouse for $300 (£235), an IRO blouse for $150 (£117) and a Realisation Par dress for $125 (£98).

However, most of Kim’s items are still available, with pieces such as a Roberto Cavalli minidress costing $3,500 (£2,740) remaining, alongside high-end pieces from Balmain and Givenchy.

Kris Jenner recently announced the launch of the store in a post on Instagram, writing: “Our new fabulous online store, @KardashianKloset is coming soon! For the first time, you’ll be able to shop items directly from our closets… Can’t wait… Love you guys!”

According to a statement, Kardashian Kloset is a “luxury resale e-commerce platform that lists pre-owned items from the Kardashian-Jenner’s wardrobes.”

Momager Kris will also be offering up wardrobe items from labels like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Balmain, Tom Ford, Versace, Bottega Veneta, and Roberto Cavalli for the once-weekly sales.

And the unique selling site is being touted by the famous family as a sustainable option to fast-fashion alternatives.

“Our goal at Kardashian Kloset is to share a part of the Kardashian-Jenner family lifestyle by offering you the opportunity to own one of a kind items, while promoting sustainability,” a spokesperson added.

Giambattista Valli refused to let his H&M collaboration ‘be a parody’

Giambattista Valli was determined for his H&M collaboration to be “totally faithful” to his iconic designs.

The Italian designer’s range for the high street retailer is set to be released next month, and in an interview with Vogue Australia, Valli explained that the line is an “ABC” of what he’s done in his career so far.

“I’m couture, I’m ready-to-wear, a mix of everything. I want people to be able to wear one of my couture jackets over jeans. I like the idea of H&M in front of a Caravaggio,” he told the publication before going on to insist that his latest partnership won’t dilute his luxury label. “I don’t want Giambattista Valli x H&M to be a parody. I’m a perfectionist; I want the collection to be totally faithful and honest to the customer.”

Valli also wants to eradicate gender from his clothes and encouraged people to experiment with pieces from his upcoming collection.

“I like to remove the etiquette surrounding he and she and think about creativity and freedom. I thought about who the Valli girl surrounds herself with. There is a fluidity, with the women wearing one of the men’s jackets. Everybody’s free to interpret it their own way,” the 53-year-old shared.

The campaign for his collaboration is fronted by Kendall Jenner and was photographed in a private garden in Rome and at the Galleria Doria Pamphilj.

Valli is proud of the decadent adverts to promote the collection, and unashamedly admitted that he creates luxury clothes to make people feel good.

“I’m not a designer who dresses someone to go to work – my community is very jet set. I hate it when luxury houses make people feel they need to buy something, or else you aren’t cool,” he added.

The Giambattista Valli x H&M collection will hit shelves on 7 November.
