Kim Kardashian had a pair of sunglasses from her debut collection made in a smaller size for her daughter North West so the youngster wouldn’t steal hers.

Last month (Apr19), the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star announced she had teamed up with eyewear brand Carolina Lemke on an initial collection of seven styles.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday, Kim shared a sweet snap of her daughter in a pair of glasses and revealed she designed some shades specifically for the five-year-old.

“I made her these kid size @carolinalemkeberlin sunglasses because I really wouldn’t share mine lol,” the 38-year-old quipped. “I love my fashionista Northie so much!”

The designer, who also founded the successful KKW Beauty and KKW Fragrance lines, went on to share the extent of North’s love of fashion, admitting that she’ll often find her trying on her clothes.

“I didn’t think my daughters love for my clothes and jewellery would happen so soon,” the reality star confessed. “I’ll literally be working and come home to find North dressed up in all of my things.”

Last month, Heat magazine reported the youngster was set to follow in the footsteps of her father and Yeezy founder Kanye West, 41, with the release of her debut clothing line.

North looks set to curate the collection, which sources claim will be titled Sunday Best, and is said to have enlisted her six-year-old cousin Penelope Disick to offer a helping hand.

The collection will reportedly be inspired by Kanye’s Los Angeles-based church services, dubbed Sunday Service, which he took to Coachella last month.

Kylie Jenner’s daughter Stormi Webster appears to be following in her mother’s stylish footsteps as she welcomed deliveries of infant-sized Adidas and Yeezy apparel.

Kylie, 21, took to Instagram Stories on Sunday morning (07Apr19) to share an unboxing video, giving fans a glimpse at the selection of items that had been sent for the 14-month-old tot.

In the clips, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star showed off the youngster’s new pairs of Adidas Falcons, along with what appears to be a selection of apparel, which came delivered in a personalised box.

The sneakers are off-white in colour with pale blue detailing at the top, and are complete with a dark panel around the base and a chunky sole.

The Kylie Cosmetics mogul also shared a look at Stormi’s mini copper-coloured Yeezy Boost 350s, which had no doubt been gifted by Yeezy founder and the youngster’s uncle, Kanye West.

The beauty mogul previously had a million-dollar deal with Puma, which ended after two years, and the star now joins sisters Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian, who also have close ties with the athletic company.

Stormi is Kylie’s only child with rapper Travis Scott, 26, and it was reported last month that she is keen to expand her family and give her daughter a sibling.

“They’ve spoken about having another baby,” an insider told Heat magazine. “Kylie would love to give Stormi a sibling and wants another girl. Travis wasn’t into it at first, but he’s happy to go along with it if it makes Kylie happy.”

Off-White has been named the hottest brand on the planet in Lyst’s quarterly rankings.

The results are released every three months based on the global fashion search engine’s analysis of the shopping behaviour of more than five million people across 12,000 designers and online stores. This accounts for Google search data, conversion rates, sales, brand mentions and engagement statistics on social media.

Off-White has risen 33 places over the past year, and has now surpassed Gucci and Balenciaga for the number one spot for the first time. These fashion houses are now in second and third place, respectively, followed by Nike, Prada, and Versace. Kanye West’s Yeezy takes seventh spot, while Vetements, Fendi, and Valentino round off the top ten.

This quarter, founder and chief executive officer, Virgil Abloh, released The Ten sneaker collaboration series with Nike and dressed Serena Williams for the 50th edition of the U.S. Open in New York.

Searches for Off-White across Lyst’s partner retailers are now up 14 per cent quarter on quarter, while traffic to Off-White products online increased 10 per cent in August (18).

The label’s logo belt and denim jacket also feature on Lyst’s women’s product list, but the top spot in these rankings went to Dior’s Saddle bag, which was recently resurrected by creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri.

Off-White was also honoured on Tuesday (23Oct18) when it was nominated in the prestigious Brand of the Year category at The Fashion Awards alongside Balenciaga, Burberry, Gucci, and Prada. The streetwear label has also received a nod in the Urban Luxe category, while Abloh is up for Designer of the Year for his work in the menswear department of Louis Vuitton.

Emily Ratajkowski enjoys searching the Internet for vintage pieces from her favourite designers.

The I Feel Pretty actress is one of the hottest names in Hollywood and is quickly building up a reputation for her ability to pull off just about any fashion or beauty trend.

While Emily undoubtedly has a wardrobe full of designer garments already, she loves to add to her clothing collection with rare items found online.

“For me, I feel like there’s certain things that you just can’t get (in shops),” she told U.S. InStyle. “Like I’m obsessed with Phoebe (Philo, former creative director of Celine), and I’m really sad to see her go, and being able to find those special Celine pieces online at eBay, that’s the kind of thing I’m hoping to give my friends, because that’s the kind of thing they’re not going to buy for themselves.”

Emily may get a thrill from finding exclusive clothes or shoes online, but she admitted that she’s not a huge shopper and doesn’t actually like to spend hours trying on outfits. Instead, she builds up a wish list so she can indulge herself from time to time.

“I like having my little wish list, and when I feel like ‘O.K., I haven’t shopped in a long time, I deserve a little treat,’ going through and being like I’m going to finally get that for myself. That’s such a good feeling,” the 27-year-old insisted.

As part of a partnership with eBay, she has shared her shopping list with her fans. Her picks for the forthcoming holiday season include a Hunting Season velvet shoulder bag, priced at $475 (£359), white Adidas Yeezy Boost sneakers costing $220 (£166), a Christian Dior saddle bag and a diamond-encrusted Rolex watch.

Duckie Thot has been tapped as L’Oreal Paris’ latest spokesmodel.

The Australian model, who is of South Sudanese heritage, has quickly risen up the ranks of the fashion world since launching her career in 2013, having landed work for the likes of Yeezy, Fenty Beauty, Oscar de la Renta and Moschino.

However, Duckie has now landed her biggest contract to date – a gig with French beauty giant L’Oreal.

“I’m honoured to represent L’Oreal Paris, a brand that celebrates infinite ways to be beautiful and makes products for all women,” she said in a statement, according to WWD. “I’m looking forward to helping more girls love the beauty of their dark skin. In my mind, I’m going back in time and telling the young girl I was: ‘Dream big, work hard and trust in yourself girl, because one day you’re going to say yes to the number-one beauty brand.'”

Duckie, 22, follows in the footsteps of celebrities such as Eva Longoria, Camila Cabello, Elle Fanning, Amber Heard and Andie MacDowell in working with L’Oreal.

A teaser image from her debut photoshoot depicts her posing in a red dress with a slick of tangerine-coloured lipstick on her pout, and she will appear in L’Oreal campaigns promoting Volume Million Lashes mascara, Infallible Foundation, Colorista hair colour and Rouge Signature lipstick.

L’Oreal Paris global president Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou explained that he was thrilled to have Duckie onboard, especially considering her strong sense of identity and wide social media following.

“While emerging in a new generation of models, Duckie Thot knows how to use her voice to match the strength of her images,” he shared. “Her energy and message of inclusivity make her a perfect recruit for the L’Oreal Paris family: original and confident in her self-worth. We’re delighted to welcome Duckie and for her to continue motivating women to believe in their own beauty around the globe.”

Duckie, real name Nyadak Thot, will make her first official appearance for L’Oreal at a show to be held by the company as part of Paris Fashion Week on 30 September (18).

Celebrity foot doctor not a fan of Kim Kardashian’s clear shoe trend

Celebrity podiatrist Dr. Suzanne Levine has urged Kim Kardashian West fans to avoid the star’s unhealthy plastic shoe trend.

The reality TV fashion icon and her famous sisters have been donning sexy see-through heels designed by Kim’s husband Kanye West for his YEEZY line all summer, but apparently the look is bad for good foot health.

Foot doctor to the stars Levine insists an untold amount of issues could arise by consistently wearing plastic footwear – and spark unsightly fungal infections.

“You are putting your feet at serious risk by essentially wrapping them in non-breathable plastic,” the New York based podiatrist told Page Six. “Without any aeration, the moist environment can exacerbate pre-existing fungal conditions or bacterial infections, in addition to increasing your risk for blisters.

“The non-breathable material leads to hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and bromhidrosis (excessive odour) – in other words, ‘smelly feet!’”

The physician also noted little will be left to the imagination in such a shoe: “There is no hiding corns and calluses, bunions, hammertoes or the pedicure you forgot to get in these shoes,” she shared.

Dr. Levine has compassion for fashionistas who can’t bear to turn away from the stylish trend and instead of swearing off the plastic footwear completely, she suggests wearing such looks, including the YEEZY season four thigh-high boot, with moderation and caution.

“I would not recommend them as a daily shoe, but being a real ‘shoe-aholic’ myself, I could see how the trend is tempting,” she confessed. “Wear them when the sun goes down, only for a few hours at a time and start off with the shorter pairs. I don’t recommend diving straight into the full boot!”

“I would wear them with some sort of drying agent, (like) antiperspirant or spray powder,” the foot doctor added.

Kanye West promotes Yeezy sneakers with Kardashian doppelganger models

Kanye West has shot a new campaign for his new Super Moon Yeezy Desert Rat sneakers using models who look like his famous wife Kim Kardashian.

The 41-year-old rapper took to Twitter on Tuesday (12Jun18) to tweet out 34 campaign images featuring nude models, some of whom looked eerily like Kim and her sisters.

Kanye’s campaign to promote the new colourway of his Super Moon Yellow Adidas Yeezy 500 sneakers featured models of different ages, sizes, and genders dressed in garments from the Yeezy line including; cycling shorts, crop tops and hoodies.

However, one of the 30 plus images features porn actress Lela Star, who bears a striking resemblance to his wife Kim, posing next to a taller blonde model, with both facing the camera wearing just socks and the sought after footwear.

Other models featured include Veneda Budny, Kristen Noel Crawley and Bad Girls Club cast members turned Instagram stars the Clermont Twins.

The NSFW (not safe for work) snaps also included more topless women and a nude man and woman embracing with legs wrapped around each other.

Another image depicts the Clermont Twins sitting on the floor, wearing cycling shorts, with their legs intertwined as they cling together in a hug. The platinum-haired duo look just like the Gold Digger rapper’s reality star partner when she wears his favourite blonde look.

There’s also a snap which shows a headless, topless model bent over while sporting just a pair of grey Yeezy pants.

The provocative images, shot by Eli Linnetz, the director of Kanye’s 2016 music video for track Fade, are reminiscent of the Yeezy season 6 campaign released in January, which featured Kim’s former employer Paris Hilton appearing as a Kim clone. In the photographs, Paris, dressed in Yeezy clothing, was recast as the make-up mogul.

“So much fun being a #KimClone in the new #YeezySeason6 campaign,” she tweeted at the time.

Kanye West faces fight over Yeezy trademark

Kanye West is facing a legal battle with a Chinese company over the rights to sell clothing using his Yeezy brand.

The rapper has owned the trademark to his Yeezy footwear brand since 2013, but lost the official rights to sell Yeezy clothing last year (17).

He has since filed documents with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to reclaim the mark for use selling apparel, but has run into trouble as a Chinese firm named Fujian Baby Network Technology Co. swooped in and trademarked the term ‘Yeezy Boost’, the name of the shoes the hip-hop star designs for Adidas, as a clothing brand.

A letter from Trademark Office officials to bosses at Kanye’s Mascotte Holdings company states that they have suspended his application due to the “likelihood of confusion” with the Yeezy Boost brand.

Kanye’s application, which was filed last August, two months after the Chinese company’s, states that he is looking to sell everything from T-shirts and blazers, to babywear and hosiery using the Yeezy name.

The All of the Lights rapper, 40, launched his first Yeezy clothing collection, in collaboration with Adidas Originals in 2015, and is currently preparing to debut his seventh season of apparel.

Kim Kardashian’s husband does still hold the rights to sell Yeezy footwear – and last month (Feb18) filed documents seeking to trademark his Red October shoes, the name of the final sneakers he designed for Nike before his switch to Adidas in 2013.

The potential battle over the rights to his brand isn’t the only legal fight Kanye is facing, as bosses at his company Yeezy Apparel have been accused of copying a camouflage design from a rival firm.

Bosses at Jordan Outdoor Enterprises claim a representative from the company contacted them and asked to use their Realtree line design, but that the pattern was allegedly copied without their permission. They are seeking unspecified damages and an order to stop Kanye selling existing merchandise bearing the design.

Kim Kardashian declared her husband Kanye West’s fashion label Yeezy has it’s own universe, as she set the record straight over brand’s latest collection.

Kim was left infuriated by rumours that Yeezy Season 7 wouldn’t include clothes because of Kanye’s lack of inspiration, and hit back after verified Twitter account Yeezy Mafia stated: “Kanye West couldn’t do what he wanted to achieve with this collection.” The tweet has since been deleted.

Firing back at the allegation, Kim questioned the Twitter handle’s credentials suggesting that it’s made up of Yeezy insiders.

“How can a verified account represent Yeezy with false information. You do NOT work for Yeezy and NOT affiliated. How are you gonna believe an account that posts fake colour ways,” she wrote alongside three laughing face emojis.

And dismissing the no clothes rumour, she stated that all the outfits she wore during her recent visit to Japan were from Kanye’s latest collection.

“Season 6 was genius. All of my Japan looks are season 7 & will be online soon. Yeezy does not play by fashion rules. The showroom was strictly shoes & always intended for that,” she said.

“YEEZY HAS ITS OWN UNIVERSE #SEASON7.”

Fan sites were quick to share some of Kim’s top Japan looks, including the cropped puffer jacket she wore over a super tight skirt and top combo, and the reworked black Adidas T-shirt paired with workout leggings and pointed white heels.

The 37-year-old also let fans know she’d “made calls” about the Yeezy Mafia Twitter account being allowed to have Kanye’s brand in its name.

Paris Hilton has transformed herself into Kim Kardashian’s “clone” for the latest Yeezy campaign.

While Kim first garnered media attention as Paris’ friend and stylist back in the mid-2000s, the two later grew apart, and even feuded – sometimes flinging insults at one another in the press.

The reality TV stars put their issues behind them in late 2016, and in a full circle moment, Kim’s husband Kanye West has now tapped Paris to star in the marketing imagery for Season 6 of his Yeezy clothing line, created in partnership with Adidas.

Wearing a long white wig with grey leggings and a blue jacket, Paris emulates the looks and outfits Kim wore in paparazzi-style imagery Kanye released last year (17), with Kim uploading three of the photos on her Instagram page on Wednesday (31Jan18) with the caption, “#YeezySeason6 #ParisHilton #ForeverTheOG (Original Gangster).”

While Paris took to Twitter to share the images, writing, “So much fun being a #KimClone in the new #YeezySeason6 campaign.”

In addition to Paris, Kanye has enlisted several other Kim-lookalikes to pose in outfits for the Season 6 campaign. Jordyn Woods, best friend of Kim’s younger half-sister Kylie Jenner, wears a teal jumpsuit, a black jumpsuit and a shorts and parka combination in a series of images shared on her Instagram page.

Meanwhile, rising stars including models Yovanna Ventura, Sarah Snyder, Sami Miro and Abigail Ratchford, as well as twins Shannon and Shannade Clermont of Bad Girls Club fame also feature.

To date, Kanye hasn’t announced plans to hold a show during the upcoming fashion weeks. However, Kim did also retweet a message on Tuesday claiming that, “Fashion week needs Kanye.”
