Kim Kardashian posted this high fashion animated illustration of herself and boyfriend rapper Kanye West. Are Kimye planning on launching a cartoon or a comic book series? The answer is no! One of Kim and Kanye’s favorite fashion designer’s Hayden Williams sent Kim a super cute fashion illustration with the power couple sporting some original designs. Don’t you just love Kim’s leopard tights and Wonder Woman gold cuff? To die for!
I never thought I would be writing a post like this but let me tell you – I couldn’t be happier to report that the standard of beauty is finally swinging back towards the curvy, full-bodied look that is more natural for most women. Unlike the stick thin models of yesterday, the voluptuous shape is what Hollywood wants to see. Celebs like Kim Kardashian, J-Lo and Beyonce have been major influencers in this new sexy body image taking over the media. Where the trend is hitting hardest is with magazine publishers. Many of the people behind the scenes of the hottest photo shoots are finding themselves adding curves and fuller faces to the stick thin models who are booked to do the shoots. In the past, it was the thinner the better but now it’s all about showcasing womanly curves in a sexy yet natural way.
Even though I am happy to see a more realistic and natural woman’s shape becoming the norm again, it’s a bit disconcerting to think that the covergirls on some of our favorite magazines are not actually as curvy as they appear. In the fickle world of modeling, chasing the body type of the moment is a constant chore for every single woman who steps in front of the camera. With the click of a mouse, a photo retoucher can add the right amount of hips, thighs, cleavage and a nice full face without the model ever having to eat a single calorie. This new method sends a dangerous message to the models of the world – you don’t have to become healthy to look healthy.
We have such a long way to go when it comes to how women’s beauty and bodies are portrayed in the media but this small step towards displaying curvy girls is definitely a step in the right direction.
I know I’ve been lacking a bit on the Kanye and Kim gossip but there hasn’t been much news lately other than shots of them hanging out in exotic places like Paris, Calabasas and New York. However, I do have some news for you. The pair is allegedly in talks with the CEO of Louis Vuitton regarding a possible shoe collection. Makes perfect sense that this high fashion duo would partner up and create a fantasy shoe line. Look at how often they are photographed rocking the newest ensemble, accessory or hot car? They live to flaunt their fashion sense and a shoe collection is the natural evolution of their relationship. Stay tuned for more info!
Do you wonder what Kim Kardashian looks like without the fancy schmanzy help of high tech photoshop and airbrushing? Take a look! The pic above was tweeted by Kim yesterday. This shot is taken from a photo shoot and doesn’t have any touching up whatsoever. Love the sun setting in the background – natural light definitely makes every woman look like a million dollars (did someone say candlelight?). Go Kim! Show the world that you can look amazing no matter what!
We all knew it was coming. It was just a matter of time when Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian’s 72-day wedded husband would move on. Looks like he moved on quicker than we expected and with a Kim Kardashian look-a-like. The NBA-baller and divorcee has recently been linked to a NYC brunette with Indian/Middle Eastern roots who supposedly works at the NYC Gansoovert Hotel. Her name is Fatmire Saninaj but she goes by Myla. She is a curvy, brunette who enjoys watching her man play ball and likes to hang with him on South Beach. Not sure what to think about this new romance. We all know about the rebound girl, right?
