Kim Kardashian is in talks with bosses at Coty over a deal to create a new make-up line.

Executives at the U.S. beauty giant, which also owns brands such as Clairol, Max Factor, OPI, Rimmel, and Wella, are negotiating a possible collaboration “with respect to certain beauty products,” according to a regulatory filing posted on Wednesday.

Coty already has a majority stake in Kim’s younger sister Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics label, having completed a deal worth approximately $600 million (£479 million) late last year.

According to editors at Bloomberg, chief executive officer Peter Harf said during a conference call with analysts on Monday that he’s “good friends” with Kim and Kylie’s mother and business manager, Kris Jenner.

“I’m very proud that the Jenner family is working with us and have access to them and to other people who are big opinion leaders on social media,” he stated.

Kim already has her own hugely successful make-up collection, KKW Beauty, with the brand previously offering up collaborations with model Winnie Harlow and make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic.

The mother-of-four launched her beauty venture back in 2017, with the company estimated to have raked in more than $100 million (£80 million) in revenue the following year.

The rumoured deal comes just days after it was alleged by writers at Forbes magazine that Kylie had faked her billionaire status and lied about her wealth.

Editors suggested the reality TV star and make-up mogul had doctored tax documents for her Kylie Cosmetics company, specifically the $1.2 billion (£959 million) valuation from when it was purchased by Coty last year, to swindle herself onto the title’s famous billionaires list. The 22-year-old later rejected the claims.

Winnie Harlow is struggling with her self-esteem as she ditches her make-up during lockdown.

The model opened up on her life in self-isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic, and in an op-ed for Allure magazine, she confessed that she’s focused on getting back to her “potential” once the restrictions are lifted.

“We’re all in the same boat right now. I know what you look like on a regular basis. It’s cool. We’re all in caveman mode. It’s all right,” Winnie wrote. “Let me tell you, the wig is off. I got a T-shirt and panties on all day.

“I get up and look in the mirror, and am like, ‘Girl, you ugly! But that’s okay, because I know your potential.’ It’s all right. We’re going back to that.”

The 25-year-old also discussed her vitiligo, which is a condition that causes white patches to develop on the skin, and said that it’s been changing over the last few years, especially around her eyes.

“People will always ask me, ‘How do you do your make-up?’ But it always changes because my skin always changes. I used to just put eye shadow on top of my skin, but as my brown skin is coming back more on my eyes, I naturally have dark circles from both my mom and dad,” she shared. “And because that area is coming back brown, it’s very, very dark.”

Elsewhere in the candid op-ed, Winnie confessed that she once complained to Kim Kardashian when she didn’t get any of her SKIMS shapewear on its launch last year.

“I was so upset. I think I went to her house for lunch and she was telling me all about SKIMS. I was like, ‘I haven’t gotten any!'” she recalled. “I (was) so excited to get that little box. Every time I’m at a shoot now and they have SKIMS stuff, I take it.”

Kim Kardashian’s line of non-medical face masks sold out just one hour after it was launched over the weekend.

The reality star and KKW Beauty mogul announced her shapewear brand SKIMS would be releasing a collection of reusable face masks, priced at $8 (£6.60) per mask and available in five different neutral shades – soft, sand, clay, sienna, cocoa and onyx – to match a range of skin tones.

The masks, inspired by SKIMS garments, are made from a blend of nylon and spandex, and while they can reduce exposure to bodily fluids they will not eradicate the risk of contracting coronavirus.

And after launching the masks on Saturday, Kim took to social media to announce that they had completely sold out after just one hour.

“Unfortunately our @skims face masks have sold out today but we’re working with our local partner in LA to produce more as quickly as possible,” she wrote on Twitter. “The next batch will be available next week – please sign up to receive more details coming soon, and thank you for your support.”

SKIMS confirmed on its website that a new batch of face masks will be available this week, and customers are being urged to sign up to a waiting list.

In addition, the mother-of-four announced that her shapewear brand would be donating 10,000 of its new face masks to four organisations in the U.S. – Baby2Baby, Good+Foundation, The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, and National Domestic Workers Alliance.

Back in March, Kim pledged a $1 million (£826,000) donation to families affected by Covid-19, with funds going towards providing essentials to those in need.

Donatella Versace has reminisced about her late brother Gianni Versace in a sweet social media post.

The chief creative officer of Versace has been posting memories from her lengthy career while holed up at her home in Milan, Italy during the country’s lockdown to help stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

And on Wednesday, she shared a touching snapshot of her and her sibling at the prestigious Met Gala in New York City almost 27 years ago.

“Here I am with my brother Gianni in New York, attending the #MetGala, it was May 1993,” Donatella wrote alongside the photo, which shows the then 37-year-old wearing a racy dress from her brother’s infamous bondage-themed Versace show back in 1992.

“Gianni that night was my stylist. I couldn’t give my opinion on one thing. He chose my clothes, my hair, my make-up and my jewellery. I didn’t have a say in ANYTHING!” she joked. “The bondage top, the leather skirt and tall black boots with gold chains were all from our fall ’92 collection, entitled Miss S&M!”

The 64-year-old reimagined the iconic minidress for Kim Kardashian in 2018, with the reality star spotted leaving her New York City hotel after the Met Gala in a bondage-inspired outfit.

The reality star’s look was inspired by an ensemble once modelled by Helena Christensen, with Donatella recreating the entire leather bustier including multiple straps and buckles.

Gianni was tragically shot and killed outside of his Miami Beach home at the age of 50 in 1997.

Carine Roitfeld is hosting a star-studded virtual fashion show to raise awareness for the coronavirus relief effort.

The second annual CR Runway show, in collaboration with the amfAR Fund to Fight Covid-19, will be a catwalk extravaganza featuring the likes models Karlie Kloss, Alessandra Ambrosio, Ashley Graham, Adriana Lima, Halima Aden, Hailey Bieber, and Irina Shayk.

Hosted by Derek Blasberg, head of fashion and beauty partnerships at YouTube, the Fashion Unites show will feature runway walks with models wearing looks from their own personal wardrobes, which Roitfeld styled remotely.

The 30-minute show has been entirely self-filmed and will feature inspiring words from the fashion elite.

Designers Diane von Furstenberg, Virgil Abloh, and Alexander Wang are set to make a virtual appearance alongside Kim Kardashian, Winnie Harlow, and Amber Valletta.

The former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris said she was inspired to “engage with the creativity of others more than ever” while in self-isolation at her luxury apartment in Paris, France.

“I am very proud of how much we all stepped out of our comfort zones to create this event,” she told WWD. “For the first time, hairstylists brought their visions to life without the use of their hands, models called the shots from behind the camera, and I learned how to style looks using only what I could see through a video call on my phone.”

The inaugural CR Runway fashion show, co-founded by Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld, debuted in Florence, Italy, in June last year, and included models Irina Shayk, Bella Hadid, Karolina Kurkova, and Stella Maxwell.

The Fashion Unites show will stream on YouTube at 4pm (EST) on Friday.

Kim Kardashian and her mother Kris Jenner have collaborated on a fragrance.

The reality TV star launched her KKW Beauty brand back in 2017 and branched out into fragrance months later, and has since collaborated with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe and half-sister Kylie Jenner on perfume products.

On Monday, Kim announced she had joined forces with her mother Kris to make the KKW x KRIS fragrance, which will be released in time for America’s Mother’s Day on 10 May.

“My mom @krisjenner and I are so excited to announce the launch of KKW x KRIS, our first-ever @kkwfragrance collaboration,” Kim wrote on Instagram. “A woody, white floral fragrance with the freshness of freesia, creamy white gardenia, and tuberose at the heart – I know you will love wearing it as much as I do.”

In a statement, the Kardashian-Jenner clan matriarch said, “Creating a fragrance together with Kim just in time for Mother’s Day was magical! We’ve talked about doing this for years, so to see our shared vision come to life has been amazing. Kim and I have similar tastes which makes working together a dream; we both wanted a classic, ageless scent that is beautiful and empowering for anyone who wears it and I think this fragrance perfectly embodies that.”

The fragrance comes in a pale pink ceramic-look hexagonal bottle featuring a mother and daughter motif. It will be available on the KKW Fragrance website from 15 April.

In her announcement, Kim also revealed that 20 per cent of all fragrance sales would be donated to Blessings in a Backpack, an organisation that provides food on the weekends for vulnerable children across America. She has already donated $1 million (£811,000) to those affected most by Covid-19 via her SKIMS shapewear brand.

Kim Kardashian is tempted to overhaul her hair colour after the coronavirus lockdown lifts.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is following U.S. government guidelines and staying at home with her family during the Covid-19 outbreak in an effort to avoid spreading the virus further.

The KKW Beauty mogul has discovered a positive side to self-isolation, as her hair is in a good condition thanks to her taking care of her own locks and avoiding the heavy use of products and styling tools she normally uses to make her hair photo-ready.

Kim recently shared a throwback snap of her with platinum blonde hair on Instagram and revealed she was considering bringing the hue back.

“My hair is gonna be so healthy after this quarantined time. Contemplating dying it blonde when we can have human interaction again,” the 39-year-old wrote.

“You know my answer,” her hairstylist Chris Appleton quipped in the comments, while the Kardashian-Jenner’s hairdresser Scotty Cunha wrote: “You know how I feel about you blonde.”

While fans and followers were quick to support Kim’s decision to transform her brunette bob into an icy blonde ‘do, some were critical of her decision to focus on her hair during a coronavirus pandemic, which has infected more than 801,000 people around the world.

“Focused on dying your hair while people are actually dying,” one wrote, while another fired: “This isn’t time to worry about your hair there’s more important stuff to worry about.”

The mother-of-four recently donated $1 million (£811,000), made with proceeds from a new restock of her SKIMS shapewear collection, to help struggling families during the Covid-19 crisis.

Chrissy Teigen celebrates 10th anniversary of her breast implants

Chrissy Teigen celebrated the 10-year anniversary of her breast implants on Monday.

The model-turned-TV personality took to Instagram on Monday to upload throwback snaps of her walking the runway in white underwear during the 2010 Beach Bunny Swimwear fashion show, and in the caption, she jokingly wrote, “Happy 10 year anniversary to these t**ties and RIP to these teeth.”

Her post received numerous comments from celebrities, including Kim Kardashian, who simply left a bunch of crying laughing face emojis.

Chrissy later responded: “@kimkardashian you guys were at this show!!! It’s why I was listed as ‘model walks runway’ no one cares about me bahahahahah.”

Comedian Whitney Cummings also commented, writing, “Wait isn’t 10 years when we need to take them out?!” referring to recommendations by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons that advise exchanging or removing implants every 10 to 15 years.

The beauty, who is married to crooner John Legend, replied by admitting she wants them removed but cannot while she’s self-isolating during the coronavirus pandemic.

“@whitneycummings yes dude and I really want them OUT,” she wrote. “Quarantine would have been perfect time but apparently it’s not ‘ESSENTIAL’ smh (shaking my head).”

Chrissy told U.K. magazine Glamour earlier this year she would like her implants removed and her breasts lifted, but noted the risks are too high after having children.

“If I could do one thing, it would be to have a lift,” the 34-year-old explained. “I think you’re supposed to replace them (implants) every 10 years. But when you have kids you think about (the risks) of surgery and I think, ‘This is not the way I want to die – in boob surgery!'”

Bebe Rexha has praised Kim Kardashian for helping her to embrace her natural curves.

The singer is now a vocal advocate for body positivity, having encountered a number of instances of size discrimination since launching her career in 2013.

However, in a conversation on Miley Cyrus’s Bright Minded show on Instagram on Wednesday, Bebe named reality TV star Kim as one of her icons.

Explaining how she desperately wanted to sport outfits similar to those worn by the likes of Miley and Britney Spears as she was growing up, the 30-year-old added, “I was a bigger, curvier girl. I had too much a*s and too much thighs (sic). She (Kim) had those curves, so I felt more accepted.”

Further on in the chat, Bebe also opened up about how she is keeping her mental and physical health in check during the coronavirus pandemic, noting that she has been making time for regular phone appointments with her therapist.

“We have to be super nice to ourselves and have a schedule,” she shared. “I meditate and I’m not allowed to look at the TV until 1pm… and you have to force yourself to do things you don’t wanna do, like a workout.”

Yet, Bebe also confessed that her lockdown diet hasn’t been great, and while she’s been snacking on Reese’s Pieces candy every day, she refuses to give herself a hard time over her food choices.

“Right now, you have to be really kind to you. We are all scared, we’re all anxious, you’ve gotta be really nice to yourself,” the Meant to Be hitmaker insisted.

Kim Kardashian has been forced to suspend operations at KKW Beauty due to the coronavirus crisis.

A spokesperson for the cosmetics brand took to Facebook on Monday to explain that they would be hitting pause on deliveries for the foreseeable future due to health restrictions currently in place in California.

”To our KKW Beauty Family. Due to current health orders in California, our fulfillment center is temporarily closing,” they wrote. “While our website remains available to accept orders, our fulfillment center cannot guarantee delivery dates at this time. Your order will receive top priority as soon as we can resume shipping.”

The company representative went on note that any order placed on or after 16 March is eligible for cancellation and a full refund. Customers with queries are advised to get in touch via email.

“While this remains a difficult time for us all, we have been so inspired by all the amazing support we are seeing within our community and would like to thank you for your patience and understanding,” they concluded.

One of the U.S. states most affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, California has over 2,000 confirmed cases. Earlier this month, Governor Gavin Newsom issued a state-wide order for Californians to stay at home, except those providing essential services.

KKW Beauty was founded by Kim in 2017, the same year her perfume line, KKW Fragrance, was launched.

Although the pause in operations is unprecedented, employees will continue to update fans via email, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, insisting that they are looking forward to the “continued sharing of beauty tips, tricks, and KWW beauty content”.
