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”.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has been named the Most Powerful Dresser of 2019.

As part of their annual Year in Fashion report, analysts at Lyst have looked at data, queries, page views, and sales metrics across six million fashion products from over 12,000 online stores as well as the global media coverage and social media mentions generated by the biggest brands and trends.

As part of this research, they also rounded up the 10 celebrities whose personal style choices have driven the biggest spikes over the last 12 months, and crowned Meghan, 38, in the number one spot.

“Meghan Markle was the most powerful dresser of 2019 and her outfits sparked, on average, a 216 per cent increase in searches for similar pieces,” a Lyst representative commented of the royal, who wed Britain’s Prince Harry in May 2018. “After she wore five different shirt dresses on the royal tour of South Africa, searches for the category grew 45 per cent over a month. The Club Monaco dress sold out in less than 24 hours, following a 570 per cent spike in searches and wearing a J Crew skirt saw a 102 per cent increase in searches for the brand.”

Timothee Chalamet landed in second place in the category, while Zendaya came third. Rounding out the top 10 was Billie Eilish, Cardi B, Lisa of K-pop band Blackpink, Kylie Jenner, Lizzo, Harry Styles, and Billy Porter.

“Billy Porter was responsible for some of the most talked-about red carpet moments of the year. When he wore a custom tuxedo-gown by Christian Siriano to the Oscars, searches for the designer increased 101 per cent in 24 hours,” the spokesperson added of the Pose star.

Sustainability and inclusivity were among the main movements in the fashion world, with the breakout brands including Bottega Veneta, Pyer Moss, Jacquemus, Paco Rabanne, Molly Goddard, Richard Quinn, Saks Potts, and Telfar.

Bottega Veneta’s The Pouch bag and Stretch sandals garnered the most interest when it came to accessories, with Gucci’s GG logo belt, Jacquemus’ Le Chiquito Bag, and Prada’s bucket hat completing the top five in the category.

Travis Scott’s 21-month-old daughter Stormi already seems to be following in her father’s stylish footsteps – by rocking the rapper’s signature box braids.

The Sicko Mode star took to Instagram on Sunday to share a series of pictures of Stormi showing off her new ‘do, writing: “Daddy’s hair.”

In the images, Stormi, Travis’ daughter with his reality star ex Kylie Jenner, could be seen wandering around the house displaying her makeover, which saw her hair parted into sections and braided, with clear beads adorning the end of each plait.

Showing her support for her dad even more, the tot was wearing a T-shirt from Travis’ Astroworld Festival, which she went to see with mum Kylie earlier this month.

Travis and Kylie have been doing their best to co-parent following their split in October, after which the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star stated that Stormi is their “main priority”.

“Travis and I are on great terms and our main focus right now is Stormi,” she said in a statement. “Our friendship and our daughter is priority.”

Meanwhile, Kylie had some fun dressing up with Stormi for Halloween last month, with the make-up maven having had a mini version of her Versace outfit, complete with a feather boa and purple wig, from the 2019 Met Gala made for her daughter.

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

Kylie Jenner has sold a $600 million (£463 million) stake in her beauty business to executives at Coty.

The reality TV star started her brand with a range of lip kits in 2015 and went on to launch Kylie Cosmetics the following year, with the company selling eyeshadows, concealers, lipsticks, and eyebrow pencils, as well as a line of skincare formulas.

Now, Kylie has sold a 51 per cent stake in her company to Coty, the American multinational beauty giant which also owns brands such as Clairol, Max Factor, OPI, Rimmel, and Wella.

“I’m excited to partner with Coty to continue to reach even more fans of Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin around the world,” the 22-year-old said in a statement on Monday. “I look forward to continuing the creativity and ingenuity for each collection that consumers have come to expect and engaging with my fans across social media. This partnership will allow me and my team to stay focused on the creation and development of each product while building the brand into an international beauty powerhouse.”

Coty bosses reported that Kylie Cosmetics realised an estimated $177 million (£137 million) of net revenues for the trailing twelve months.

Kylie and her team will continue to lead all creative efforts in terms of product and communications initiatives, especially with regards to social media.

“We are pleased to welcome Kylie into our organisation and family,” added Pierre Laubies, Coty chief executive officer. “Combining Kylie’s creative vision and unparalleled consumer interest with Coty’s expertise and leadership in prestige beauty products is an exciting next step in our transformation and will leverage our core strengths around fragrances, cosmetics and skincare, allowing Kylie’s brands to reach their full potential.”

In March, editors at Forbes estimated Kylie Cosmetics to be valued at $900 million (£694 million) and Kylie’s net worth to be $1 billion (£771 million) – making her the world’s youngest billionaire.

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.

Kylie Jenner planning to turn Rise and Shine meme into clothing line

Kylie Jenner has filed trademark applications in a bid to turn her popular Rise and Shine meme into a clothing line.

Earlier this month, the 22-year-old took fans on a tour of her Kylie Cosmetics office in a video for her YouTube channel, and during the clip, visited her 20-month-old daughter Stormi Webster’s nursery, where she sang the words “rise and shine” to wake the toddler up. The clip went viral and caused a sensation on social media, with users creating memes and videos poking fun at Kylie.

The beauty mogul quickly cashed in on the frenzy by releasing two $65 (£51) sweatshirts inspired by the song on her e-commerce website, both of which immediately sold out.

And it now appears that Kylie has bigger plans. On the same day that she released the merchandise, the reality TV star filed to trademark both “Rise and Shine” as well as “Riiise and Shiiinnee”.

According to the applications on the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the trademarks would be used for: “Belts; Bottoms as clothing; Coats; Dresses; Footwear; Gloves; Headbands; Headwear; Jackets; Loungewear; Scarves; Sleepwear; Socks; Swimwear; Tops as clothing; Undergarments.”

The standard “Rise and Shine” trademark is also intended for use with cosmetics.

Yet, her trademark bid has been criticised by social media users, who have ridiculed her for taking the meme too far.

“I think it’s so funny that kylie jenner is trying to trademark ‘rise and shine’. Sis it was just a funny meme for the week nothing more nothing less lmao (laughing my a*s off),” one wrote, while another added, “Those ‘Rise and Shine’ videos of Kylie Jenner were funny until she started doing too much by making sweatshirts and now trying to trademark it… Like why can’t she just let it be funny and leave it alone?”

However, Kylie may have some competition on her hands as many similar trademark applications already exist on the database.

Olivier Rousteing: ‘Kylie Jenner didn’t need to apologise for missing Balmain show’

Olivier Rousteing has insisted Kylie Jenner didn’t need to apologise for missing his Balmain show during Paris Fashion Week.

The Kylie Cosmetics mogul was set to serve as artistic director for make-up at Balmain’s spring/summer 2020 runway presentation in the French capital in September in order to celebrate the launch of their joint Kylie X Balmain cosmetics capsule collection, which debuted on the catwalk.

However, days before the event, the 22-year-old announced on social media that she was too sick to travel to France and said she was “heartbroken” to be missing the event.

But in an interview with W magazine, Rousteing, the creative director of the French luxury fashion house, shared that Kylie didn’t need to apologise for being unwell.

“We were texting on and on and on and on. Kris (Jenner) was with me and we were talking to her and she was saying she didn’t feel good. But you know, there’s no need for any apology. When you feel sick, you feel sick,” he commented. “And I was wishing for her to feel better and she did, she went to the hospital. Fashion cannot control everything, you know what I mean? But, of course, she was really sad.”

At the time, it was reported Kylie was rushed to hospital with “severe, flu-like” symptoms such as nausea and dizziness.

The Kylie X Balmain collection features lip gloss, a lip kit consisting of a blush pink liquid lipstick and soft chocolate nude lip liner, as well as a nine-pan eyeshadow palette.

Accordingly, Rousteing noted that he enjoyed shooting the campaign with the reality TV star.

“She’s really good at colour. Obviously, I cannot wear those colours on me, but we spent like days with our arms putting some colours, some eyeshadows. It was just amazing to be in her office and working together on that,” the designer added.

Kylie Jenner’s daughter Stormi Webster is already “obsessed” with make-up.

In a clip recently shared to her YouTube channel, the 22-year-old revealed her 20-month-old now “begs” her to let her play with cosmetics.

“Stormi is actually super into make-up right now. It’s amazing,” she said. “Every time I’m wearing lipstick she notices. She looks at me and says, ‘lip lip lip.'”

During the clip, Kylie also explained she wasn’t yet sure when she’d officially allow Stormi, who she shares with ex Travis Scott, to wear make-up, adding she “hadn’t even thought about (it)”.

“I don’t know, I’m just going to see,” the beauty mogul mused. “She might even not want to wear make-up. But honestly, how things are going, this girl is obsessed with make-up. She begs me at this point.”

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s Kylie Cosmetics make-up line has served her well, with the youngest sibling in the Kardashian/Jenner family being declared the youngest self-made billionaire in the world by editors at Forbes back in March.

She launched her brand in 2016 with a line of liquid lipsticks, but has since branched out into concealer, foundation, eyeshadow, and lip gloss, as well as skincare.

Meanwhile, a viral meme of Kylie singing the words “rise and shine” to Stormi taken from a YouTube video is continuing to do the rounds on social media.

Even Ariana Grande uploaded a video of herself emulating the reality TV personality, and in the accompanying caption, she asked if she could “sample” the tune.

In response, Kylie wrote, “Yes, yes you can @arianagrande. As long as I’m in (the) music video.”

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.
