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.

Kim Kardashian wishes Paris Hilton would take better care of her purses

Kim Kardashian used to get annoyed with Paris Hilton for not taking care of her handbags.

The reality TV personality first gained media attention as the friend and stylist of the hotel heiress back in the early 2000s, with the pair often stepping out in matching outfits.

Famously, the stars were snapped wearing coordinating beachwear and carrying large gold and silver Louis Vuitton handbags during a trip to Sydney, Australia in 2006, but in a video for Vogue’s Life in Looks video series, Kim admitted there was nothing inside of Paris’s designer purse.

“This is one of my favourite, most iconic looks. Those bags, I still have those bags,” she smiled. “One thing – Paris does not take care of her purses. So, if you see what’s inside of her bag, there is a million things from every kind of make-up, lashes, just everything. It’s like a pharmacy inside of her bag! I would not let her put anything inside of this bag. It is an empty bag that she’s carrying.”  

Kim went on to reflect on some of her other looks from the period and shared that she wishes she never wore the white shirt and grey knit dress with an oversized Fendi belt to a Us Weekly party.

“I was able to afford a Fendi belt and matching Fendi boots,” the 39-year-old recalled. “Any time I could go to an event, I would. Because I just wanted my picture taken. That’s all that mattered to me.”

However, Kim has no regrets over her phase of sporting either a dress and stilettos or a Juicy Couture tracksuit with Havaianas flip-flops, even considering her penchant for French manicures and pedicures at the time.

“That’s what I wore every day to walk up and down to walk up Robertson Boulevard,” she smiled. “French tipped toenails to match the nails, the hoops, the whole thing is pretty legendary if you ask me. I love it and this era will always have such a close place in my heart.”

Kim Kardashian does ‘everything’ to take care of her skin

Kim Kardashian does “everything” to try and keep her skin in tip-top condition.

The reality star and beauty mogul told Vogue.com that is a big believer in a good skincare routine and that there’s no kind of facial treatment that she hasn’t tried.

“I really do believe in taking good care of your skin. And I mean laser facials, everything, you name it, I love participating in beauty treatments,” Kim shared, before adding that her favourite is an oxygen facial.

The KKW Beauty founder also takes care of her body and makes sure she stays in shape even while travelling.

“I love massages, all different kinds. If I’m really exhausted, if I’m travelling, I do see a chiropractor as well. I think that’s really important to get aligned and massaged. So I definitely take care of my body as well,” Kim explained.

Back in May, the mother-of-four stunned in a wet-look Mugler creation for the 2019 Met Gala and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star told Vogue that the optical illusion dress was her favourite-ever look.

“I just think it’s so well done and so different for me. I just think it was so well executed, there was so much work into it that I just loved how it turned out,” she gushed.

Elsewhere in the interview, she acknowledged that her style has changed throughout her career, but she’s still a “sucker for a ’90s trend”.

“I really like a winged liner more than I have in the past, I like a lip liner more defined than I have in the past. I don’t know if those specific changes are because I have gotten older or because it’s just on trend,” Kim added.

Kim Kardashian likes to use shapewear if she’s gained weight

Kim Kardashian uses shapewear to help her feel good about her body when she’s gained a few pounds.

The KKW Beauty mogul, who recently discussed gaining 18 pounds in the last year, told People magazine that wearing structured underwear improves how she feels about herself when she’s having an off day.

“It makes you not be so hard on yourself,” Kim said of her shapewear line SKIMS. “I feel good when I’m in the gym and when I’m eating good but then if I have a few months when I’m eating cookies and cake and a bunch of stuff, I still want to feel confident when I have to go out.”

And the mother-of-four still wants to look sexy in solutionwear, despite it traditionally looking stuffy and old-fashioned.

“If women can feel confident and comfortable in shapewear that’s a little bit more modern and not so old school and grandma-looking, then that is my goal. They look good and they’re still sexy!” Kim laughed.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star told People that one of the reasons she created SKIMS was because she wanted women to have a more comfortable alternative to bulky or restrictive undergarments.

“Everything I would wear was too restricting. I felt like there was a way to engineer fabric to lift, but also be comfortable,” she explained.

Kim was also baffled that nobody else had decided to create a line of shapewear that featured a variety of different nude colours to suit different skin tones.

“It’s so crazy that it hadn’t been done before,” Kim shared, noting that her SKIMS line features nine different shades. “My nude isn’t the same as everyone’s nude. And if I was tan, I couldn’t find a colour that matched. I just had to find a solution.”

Emily Ratajkowski: ‘Women should be able to wear a burka or a bikini without judgment’

Emily Ratajkowski is tired of women attracting criticism over their personal clothing choices.

Since launching her career in 2013, the model/actress has risen to prominence for using her platform to call out instances of body shaming as well as to promote women’s rights.

Discussing feminism during a recent interview with ABC News’ Nightline programme, Emily explained that it’s very important to her that women are able to do and wear whatever they want.

“It’s about not limiting options or saying someone is a bad feminist,” she said. “It’s just about the ability to choose to be whatever kind of woman you want to be, to live whatever kind of life you want, to dress however you want, whether it be in a burka or a bikini.”

Previously, Emily has spoken out in defence of Kim Kardashian and U.S. First Lady Melania Trump after both women were subjected to derogatory comments, and she has no plans to stop addressing the issue, as she believes men are rarely attacked in the same way.

“I think that we shouldn’t be taking women for how they represent themselves or their body or even their sexual past and judging them for those things because that’s just not something we do with men,” the 28-year-old commented. “For me, it’s not even about taking the narrative into my own hands. It’s about calling out moments where there are inequality and unfairness.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Emily addressed her appearance in Robin Thicke’s controversial Blurred Lines video in 2013. She and other models danced topless in the unrated cut, and while the clip was accused of hypersexualising women, the brunette beauty insisted she was always at ease on set.

“The director, Diane Martel, is a really brilliant woman who understood exactly what she was doing,” she shared. “So, I felt very comfortable with the sort of things that maybe some people deemed controversial. I understood what the idea was, and I liked it.

“(The women) were depicted as not taking themselves too seriously not taking these men at all seriously… there was a lot of humour behind it…it was about having fun and women embracing their bodies.”

Kim Kardashian is so knowledgeable about cosmetic surgery that she’s become a go-to expert for her famous friends.

The reality TV star loves to spend her free time trawling through the social media accounts of cosmetic and plastic surgeons, as well as researching different procedures, and now has such in-depth knowledge of the topic that she is often asked for her advice by A-list celebrities.

“The Instagram accounts from surgeons are something that I love to go through,” she told New York Magazine. “I love to research every single procedure to know exactly what’s out there. And people call me all the time, like really famous people, out of the blue and are like, ‘I know we don’t know each other, but I’ve heard you’re the expert and I’m looking to do x, y, and z. Who would you recommend?’ And I’ll be like, ‘Actually, I’ve just researched this!'”

The 39-year-old didn’t divulge if she had undergone any treatments herself, although she has been accused of getting a nose job, breast enhancement, and facial fillers over the years. She famously had an X-ray taken of her bottom on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians to prove she doesn’t have implants.

However, Kim revealed she often meets with cosmetic doctors to get advice on what to have done when she’s older.

“I’ll meet with doctors and be like, ‘So when I’m 50, do you think my neck is going to, (be) like …? What’s the best way to do it?'” the mother-of-four admitted.

Elsewhere in the interview, Kim shared that she wears a robe “24/7” when she’s at home because she’s always glammed up when she’s outside and has worn the same two or three pairs of pyjamas so much that they have holes in them.

Kim Kardashian has decided it’s time for her to scale back on posting bikini photos online.

The reality TV star, who boasts 152 million followers on Instagram, is known for regularly sharing selfies and sexy snaps of herself on social media.

However, in a new interview with New York Magazine, Kim explained that as a mother-of-four, legal student, and political advocate, her former persona no longer aligns with her current focus.

“I think I’m evolving to where I don’t feel the need to want to keep up,” she said. “Not that I did it to feel like I had to keep up, but I guess I just don’t care as much anymore to want to take tonnes of photos in a thong bikini. I actually just want to lay out. I don’t care to take the time out of my day on vacation like I used to, where I’d pull up to the house and I’d see, ‘This is a setup, this is an Instagram pic. Now, this is a different setup. Oh, this place has so many different setups. This is going to be amazing.’ And now I’m just like, ‘Let’s actually live in real-time and enjoy it. If we happen to get a photo, great.'”

Kim went on to share that her rapper husband Kanye West has had a lot of input in her style evolution, though she also insisted that she ultimately has the final say on all of her ensembles.

“I have kind of had this awakening myself. I realised I could not even scroll through Instagram in front of my kids without full nudity coming up on my feed pretty much all the time. And I definitely contributed to that. I mean, one of my most iconic covers was the Paper magazine winter 2014 one, when I was all oiled up and ripping my dress off,” the 39-year-old commented, before referring to the time she met with U.S. President Donald Trump in May 2018 to try and negotiate the release of grandmother Alice Marie Johnson from prison. “I also did think, like, ‘Okay, I’m here in the White House,’ and then the next day I was posting, like, a crazy bikini selfie. And I was thinking, ‘I hope they don’t see this. I have to go back there next week.'”

Kim Kardashian cried after Kris Jenner stole her thunder during Karl Lagerfeld photoshoot

Kim Kardashian was upset when her mum Kris Jenner stole her thunder while she was being photographed by Karl Lagerfeld in 2013.

Following her first-ever appearance at the Met Gala in 2013, the reality TV star was approached by French fashion editor Carine Roitfeld about doing a photoshoot for her magazine CR Fashion Book, to be art-directed by Riccardo Tisci, who was then creative director of Givenchy, and photographed by Chanel’s Lagerfeld.

Kim was thrilled by the opportunity as she had “never been accepted into fashion at this point” and ended up taking her mother with her to Paris for the shoot. However, she ended up regretting that decision when Kris turned up decked out in a Chanel ensemble and became instant pals with Lagerfeld.

“The two of them have this love affair like I’ve never seen before,” she recalled to New York Magazine. “And I’m like, ‘Hello?’ I’m sitting here posing. I’m so uncomfortable. I’m like, ‘This is so embarrassing,’ and this is so annoying. I remember texting my sisters and being like, ‘Guys, mom is stealing my shiiiine.’ This is my first fashion shoot!'”

The 39-year-old became even more upset when the shoot was over and Lagerfeld gave a Chanel bag to Kris and not Kim, even though he traditionally gifts them to his models.

“He comes up and he’s like, ‘Kim, this was the best shoot. Thank you so much. But Kris, here is a bag for you,’ and he gives the f**king bag to my mom. And it was a LEGO clutch. They were like $10,000, and you could never get one,” Kim admitted. “So, I go into the bathroom and start crying. I was like, ‘Oh my God, she fully stole my life. She stole my whole day today! This was my biggest moment ever in fashion, with Carine, Riccardo, and Karl!'”

Kim had been planning to give the bag to her daughter North, now six, so she has convinced Kris to pass it on to her one day.

“I’ve said to her: ‘Just so we’re clear, in your will, this goes to North.’ I don’t need it. That bag was for my daughter,” she concluded.

Fashion legend Karl died at the age of 85 in February.

Kim Kardashian: ‘Kanye was right to stop North wearing make-up’

Kim Kardashian has stopped arguing with her husband Kanye West about whether their six-year-old daughter North should wear make-up.

The reality TV star originally called the topic a “big fight” in their household but has now confessed that she agrees with the Life of Pablo rapper and accepts his objection to their child wearing cosmetics.

Appearing on Australian talk show The Sunday Project this weekend, Kim said of the issue: “About the make-up thing, I don’t think a kid should really be wearing make-up either, you know.”

The KKW Beauty mogul went on to explain how she spoke with friends and family about the disagreement with Kanye, who gave her a better understanding of the dilemma.

“I think sometimes if you don’t understand a rule, it is good to learn and ask your friends. In my case (I asked) my siblings what they would do,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star admitted.

After the chat with her pals and loved ones, she and Kanye came to an agreement, as she explained: “(We) bounce ideas around and develop a way that we’re going to parent and rules that we have. And we always have to stay aligned.”

The 39-year-old previously shared that Kanye wanted to block North from using any make-up until she’s a teenager.

“It’s a big discussion, a big fight in the household right now but it is what’s best,” she told E! News in October. “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 mum putting on lipstick and lip gloss.”

Kim Kardashian has set the record straight after fans noticed she was wearing what appeared to be her original engagement ring in a campaign image.

The reality star flaunted an array of stunning jewels in recent snaps promoting her new KKW fragrance, Diamonds Collection, with her eagle-eyed followers quick to notice she was wearing both engagement rings in the shoot, including the 20-carat emerald-cut rock she was given by her husband Kanye West in 2016, months before it was stolen when she was robbed at gunpoint in her Paris hotel.

Addressing the sudden return of the jewel, Kim told Entertainment Tonight that jeweller Lorraine Schwartz had made her a replica.

“I borrowed all jewellery from Lorraine Schwartz. It was nice to borrow it all and nice to give it back to her,” she said. “She always knows the cut and everything that I really wanted. So, when I want to wear something, I’ll borrow it from her for the day… There is a replica around. A little fake that I’ll borrow from her sometimes that she made. A really nice one. It looks really nice.”

Kim also took the opportunity during the interview to congratulate her sister Kylie Jenner amid the news that bosses at Coty recently acquired 51 per cent of Kylie’s brands, Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin, for $600 million (£464 million).

Dismissing any speculation of a rivalry between herself and Kylie, the 39-year-old commented: “I’m so proud of her. To think in her early 20s, she built a business off of something that she first was insecure about and finding confidence and, you know, just tapping into that and figuring out how to make an amazing product and just being true to herself and doing what she loves to do, that’s so inspiring and so amazing and I’m so proud of her.”

In addition, Kim revealed that Kylie, 22, had wanted to sell her business “for a long time” and made the decision to sell just over half of it “about a year ago”.
