Kourtney Kardashian’s Obsession – Turbans

Being a Kardashian I would imagine it’s hard to stand out, so one has to try that much harder.

Kourtney Kardashian has been catching my eye recently as she “Takes New York” with her sisters, because she been sporting some very interesting head-wear.

The mother of one has been wearing two different types of turbans. The full hat and headband style.

I believe Kourtney’s bold fashion statement didn’t go down to well with her twitter followers because she defending herself saying, “Everyones hating my turban look…just having a little fashion fun in New York! It’s not that serious.”

Did she get inspiration from Style.com?

Turbans featured in many Spring 2011 runway shows.

In New York Jason Wu and Vena Cava presented models wearing turbans, as did Issa in London, Giorgio Armani in Milan and Andrew Gn sent models down the runway with a few variations of the turban in Paris.

Many would be skeptical about wearing a turban, but not Shala Monroque who’s been wears turbans as part of her everyday wardrobe.

This piece can be hard to pull off.

Will you be following this trend?

    I wear turbans all the time. I don’t care about the looks I get. At least I am confident and am having fun with fashion. Jeweled turbans are stunning. I got one from Turkey recently.

    I have loved turbans since Prada 2007. One one does it like Shala

    I actually think she doesn’t look that bad. Compared to Salma’s, her turbans don’t look riddiculous. Still, I think they should not be presented off the runways.

    i wear turbans and headscarnes all the time, even before they became de rigeur. on kourtney i think it looks contrived, like she is trying too hard to be fashionable. everything is not for everybody.

    cant people are actually giving her grief over the turbans, they look quite cute. although turbans always make me think of the professor marvel from the wizard of oz.

    No, I think turbans are very unflattering on most people, including Kourtney…

    I love them. Ever since I laid my eyes on Catherine Baba I’ve wanted a turban. It’s probably been about a year and I still haven’t managed to find one that I love-love yet. I will still continue the search though. I think they’re such a fabulous fashion accessory. So much so that whoever wears them oozes confidence. They’re so transforming in a good way. I cannot wait to find one and then slowly but surely start a collection

    kardashian or not, we think turbans are hot hot hot!

    That first picture doesn’t even look like her.
    I don’t like turbans, and I have yet to see one that looks good on anyone.

    • SarahV October 22, 2010 at 12:55 #

      It is her though, a bad picture plus she lost a lot of weight recently…

    The only time I wear anything akin to a turban is when I wrap the towel around my head after washing my hair. And in the bathroom in private is where this look will stay in my life.

    I’m not a fan of turbans, but I like the headband version, cute. I don’t know…I often think about Gloria Swanson in “Sunset Boulevard” when I see a woman wearing a turban.

    Women who have lost their hair due to illness have been wearing turbans for years. It’s nice to see some celebrities helping to make it an acceptable fashion accessory.

    I’ve worn turbans for years, I love them. Such an easy elegance to them. I do get funny looks in them, but don’t care. Catherine Baba is of course a pro turban wearer, very inspirational. Last week I got a new turban ready for winter, in a gorgeous dark red velvet, can’t wait to wear it!
