Kim Kardashian In Atelier Versace – 2018 Met Gala

I have to give it to Kim Kardashian for a truly jaw-dropping moment at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

This liquid-gold Atelier Versace chainmail gown would have not have only made co-host Donatella Versace proud, but also would have made King Midas blush.

I love the smart, subtle reference of the embellished crosses on the figure-flattering confection to highlight the theme, with the cross motif also echoed in her double necklaces.

A Cleopatra beauty look completed this sartorial gold standard.

Kim Kardashian In Versace – KKW x Mario Dinner

Kim Kardashian and her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic collaborated to create the KKW Beauty X Mario collection (launching 5th April), which was celebrated with friends and beauty influencers at an exclusive dinner held Jean Georges at the Waldorf Astoria in Hollywood on Saturday (March 5).

After a series of red carpet outings in oversized blazers, I was happy to see Kim back to her smoldering best wearing Versace.

This structurally seamed number sculpts the contours for a figure-flattering finish, while the sweetheart neckline adds a touch of signature Versace sex-appeal.

Blue eye-shadow was the theme of the event (and key in the promotion) which was also sported by all the beauty influencers in attendance.

Lorraine Schwartz ‘Eye Bangles’ Collection Launch

‘The Eye Bangles’ Lorraine Schwartz launch, in addition to her signature Against Evil Eye Collection, was celebrated on Tuesday (March 13) in Hollywood. Naturally her biggest fans Rita Ora, Blake Lively and Sofia Vegara were in attendance.

Rita Ora: In recent times when we see La Perla looks on the red carpet, they tend to be suits (think Joanne Froggatt, Fan Bingbing and Gwyneth Paltrow), but Rita Ora opted embrace the luxury brand for what it’s historically know for – lingerie. Even with the robe covering most of the look, there is no escaping the fact that she is wearing a nightgown underneath. Thankfully her Lorraine Schwartz jewels provide some distraction.

Blake Lively: Probably the designer biggest fan, the actress opted to keep things simple with a Brandon Maxwell Spring 2018 LBD, allowing the jewels to be the focus. I love how her medley of Lorraine Schwartz bracelets complement her Christian Louboutin ‘ Galeria’ sandals.

Kim Kardashian: Without the oversized blazers and the pink hair, I have to say this was a surprisingly simple and refreshing look for Kim.

#MDNAmeetsKKW

MDNA SKIN hosted Madonna and Kim Kardashian West for a beauty conversation at YouTube Space LA, on Tuesday (March 6).

Throughout the 30-minute conversation, Madonna and Kim shared their favourite beauty tips, biggest beauty inspirations, took selfies and tried each other’s products.

The Queen of pop wore a wore an Alexandre Vauthier velvet tuxedo with enlarged lapels to accentuate the shoulder line giving her a classic 80s look.

Kim was also presenting a classic look, by opting for a bra and fitted skirt.

Here’s a snippet of their conversation. The full conversation will be posted on the MDNA SKIN’s YouTube channel.

Madonna on her daily beauty routine
“I sleep on my face, so I wake up with puffy eyes. When I wake up, my eyes look like small planets, so I created these eye masks that are filled with eye serum, and I cannot speak to anybody until my eyes are not planets.”

Madonna on her beauty inspirations
“I loved Hollywood glamour – Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, and Marlene Dietrich. To me, they were the personification of feminine beauty, and it really looked like they all took care of their skin. And yes, they are all mentioned in my song Vogue.”

Madonna on when beauty first became important to her
“When you become aware that people are watching you and judging you, then you start thinking about the way you look.”

Kim on sharing beauty tips
“I love giving advice. People always come to me. I love analyzing someone’s face and going with them to a doctor and being like, ‘Wait, a little botox here and little here.’ People write me — I will not say who — but people in the business, people that I’ve never even met before, and they’ll text me and they’ll be like, ‘Hey this is so and so. I’m going to send you pictures and tell me what you think I should do.”

Kim on her inspiration
“My mom was a stewardess and all the girls would save their money for a beauty ‘tips and tricks’ class. She learned the trick of exfoliating with a hot wash cloth and I wash my face with a wash cloth every night.”

Kim Kardashian Loves…Black Blazers

When Kim Kardashian suited up for the Create & Cultivate women’s conference series event in LA on Saturday (February 24), I noticed a bit of a trend.

Her menswear-inspired ensemble complete with bright white Celine mules wasn’t the first time she made a black blazer (sans bra) the focal point of her red carpet look.

Back in November she rocked a Gucci for Tom Ford blazer in a very similar way, twice.

Only her trousers and hairstyling changes, so this has me wondering, is Kim stuck in a bit of a style rut?

What I do know is that the oversized nature of her most recent look is way too comical to be taken seriously.
