twenty two haute things to love about fashion.

Tag Archives: Kim Kardashian

The Kardashian girls are everywhere: literally. After releasing their mediocre line for Bebe last winter, the Kardashian trio are up and at it again with a new line of affordable fashions courtesy of QVC. The line will consists of 31 pieces ranging in price from $19 to $240 bucks (no too bad!) and is co-designed by Tommy Hilfiger’s sister Ginny Hilfiger. Judging from the promo pictures this line has some potential especially with the Kardashian star power. QVC is doing wonders for celebrities who want to venture out in fashion design (Rachel Zoe anyone?) so it’s no wonder the Kardashian sisters are all over it. Yeah the clothes are cute but I’ve seen this all before and probably own half of the collection in my closet already. I guess I need to see the entire collection before I judge. But nevertheless, this line is still wwwwwaaaayyyy better than their Bebe line.

What do you guys think of the new Kardashian line? Yay or Nay?

So the 62nd annual Primetime Emmy Awards was last night and like every red carpet event, there were some amazing designer dresses worn by some of TV’s hottest stars. There were was good, some bad and some downright fugly gowns on the red carpet last night but five stars took my breath away with five amazing looks. Glee’s Lea Michele (Oscar de la Renta), True Blood’s Anna Paquin in (Alexander McQueen), VD’s Nina Dobrev (Zuhair Murad), Kim Kardashian (Marchesa), Dexter’s Jennifer Carpenter (Oday Shaka) and all shined on the red carpet this year and made it onto my “Fab-Five” list for Emmys best dressed 2010. What do you guys think? Who takes the crown home for best dressed this year?

My pick would be Nina Dobrev. Girl looked amazing. Followed by Jennifer Carpenter and then Anna Paquin (some reason I’m in love with this dress).

I am a HUGE accessory junkie. I adore my bangles, shades and necklaces; but I most love my rings. From stackable to cocktails, I wear about 4 rings on a daily basis. Lately though, I’ve been obessing about full finger rings. Not really sure what they’re called but a bunch of celebs are sporting the trend including Vanessa H., Beyonce and Kim K..

I don’t know about you guys but I been into cut-out dresses ever since I seen Leighton Meester’s dress at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards. I’ve been eyeing for one reasonably priced and I guess many other of your gals have been too since Top Shop has a bunch of these for about $90 bucks….and for the ones who are too shy to wear such as sexy silhouette. Don’t worry Topshop sells cut-outs with mesh that are equally as fabulous.

Nicole Richie is one busy momma. After gaining a reputation for her drug use, hard-partying and jail stints, the petite socialite is looking to change that by juggling two demanding jobs at once: being a mother of two and fashion designer. This spring she debuts her Winter Kate clothing line which has garnered her positive reviews and admiration from fashionistas all over the globe.

Named after her daughter Harlow’s middle names, Winter Kate’s 40-piece collection features dresses, vests, blouses, and leather jackets all ranging in price from $100 to $500, with most pieces set around 200 bucks. It’s modestly priced considering Richie was raised in the essence of wealth and superstar life.

Winter Kate is
a reflection of Richie’s personal style. It’s vintage-inspired and features a boho-esque vibe with flowy tops and a tad bit of a edge. It’s casual and comfortable just like Richie. Each garment is created with flattering materials such as chiffon, suede, silks and leather to fit perfectly on women of all shapes and sizes.

According to Richie herself “Fashion should be accessible,” and who couldn’t agree more. Tons of young women across the country have been imitating Richie’s look since she burst onto the Hollywood scene with former best friend Paris Hilton on the FOX reality show The Simple Life. She has become the poster girl for leather bombers, maxi jewelry and over the top chunky jewelry. In fact since its launch in February her ‘Harlow’ leather jacket and her ‘Kimono’ maxi dress have become the line’s best sellers.

Winter Kate is the second fashion venture for Richie, who already has an accessories line named House of Harlow 1960. That line specializes in jewelry and footwear and since debuting in 2008 has become one of the most successful lines in Hollywood. It has been worn by many celebrities including Madonna, Kim Kardashian and Nicole herself.K

Richie’s luxurious casual style brings a 1970s boho-esque vibe to Winter Kate which is soon to be adored by fashionistas all over the world. Her accessories line worked because it’s was simply beautiful and her clothing line has the same impact. Only very few “privileged” designers can pull of an original cohesive brand with longevity, (Stella McCartney, the Olsen Twins) and now Nicole Richie. I’m already pulling out my credit card for the ‘Harlow’ jacket.
