North West Will Only Allow Kim Kardashian to Photograph Her Under This Condition

Monday, July 10th, 2017

North West knows what she wants and how to get it—especially when it comes to capturing her best side. We mean, she learned from the best. Her mom is selfie extraordinaire Kim Kardashian and she comes from a long line of expert selfie-taking family members (See: Kylie Jenner), so it would make sense that the 4-year-old would start her list of selfie-related demands sooner or later. First up: No flash.

For a lot of us, flash photography can make us look greasy, red-eyed, or downright bad. Obviously aware of these downsides, North is already implementing her no-flash condition. We first learned of North’s no-flash rule in an adorable Instagram video of the toddler and her cousin, Penelope Disick, getting ready for Kourtney Kardashian‘s daughter’s 5th birthday party as proud mama Kim videotapes them.

The cute clip begins with North, dressed in a patch-filled denim jacket and some oversized heels, stomping (more like, wobbling) toward Kim to demand her to put her phone down and get moving already.

“We’re going out to go to a party!” she tells her mom. “No! Not flash!”

“No, no. Okay, no flash,” Kim responds, laughing.

The video continues with North and Penelope breaking down all the party’s fun-filled festivities: mermaid cakes, 97 mermaids, balloons, a shower, and towels.

“A shower and towels? Wow. That’s going to be a wild party,” Kim joked to her daughter.

While the party also included a rap performance by Will Smith and his son, Jaden, let’s be real, nothing is more exciting a shower and towels. Also, let’s pray that no one took a picture of North with flash because that’s def one way to ruin a girls’ night out.

The 12 Prettiest Copper Eyeshadows You’re Required to Try This Summer

Saturday, June 17th, 2017

Yay, we write sarcastically, summer is officially here, and if you’re anything like the beauty obsessed of the world, you’ve been overloading your inspo boards and filling your bathroom cabinet with warm weather-friendly makeup in preparation for sweat, sweat, humidity, and more sweat. And although you’ve probably been dreaming of lightweight, no-makeup makeup that won’t melt off your face the second you step outside, we’re here to tell you that the prettiest, most-inspiring trend that’s taking over Instagram and the faces of some of our favorite celebrities right now is actually super-bold, copper eyeshadow. And before you immediately disagree with us (we get it, slapping on eyeshadow in the summer doesn’t exactly sound ideal), we’re here to confirm that it’s so outrageously cool-looking, you’ll want to wear it on even the hottest, eight-billion-degree days.

But, hey, don’t take our word for it, ’cause celebrities like Adriana Lima, who brightened her copper smokey eye with a red-poppy lip and an all-white outfit at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, are evidence enough that we’re not the only ones feeling feelings for this insanely pretty trend. And other than making you look and feel like a total badass, copper eyeshadow is also one of very few shades that’s universally flattering, from the most pale of skin tones (look for copper shadows with gold-to-tan undertones) to the richest and deepest skin tones (look for coppers with red or orange undertones).

And to prove it to you, we rounded up the 12 best, prettiest copper shadows on the market right now, ranging from super-pigmented formulas like Mehron’s brand-spanking-new powder to lighter, low-key tones like E.l.f.’s liquid eyeshadow, alongside photos of the trend in action to get you inspired. See the products, below, and while you’re at it, say it with us: Only three more months of summer.


This Designer Has Receipts that Say Kylie Jenner Stole Her Ideas

Saturday, June 10th, 2017

Kylie Jenner may be a lot of things, but is thief one of them? The 19-year-old is under fire from New York-based indie streetwear shop, PluggedNYC, for allegedly stealing their designs—and on top of that, the brand apparently has the receipts to prove it. (Get out your tea, people!)

After the reality star announced her new line of camo-printed clothing on Wednesday, the Internet was quick to point out that Kylie’s all-camo looks shared a striking similarity to a camo collection Plugged had been selling for ages. Tizita Balemlay, Plugged’s creative director, apparently saw the resemblance too, which is why she reportedly leaked receipts proving that Kylie knew about (and was a fan of) Plugged’s camo collection before she dropped one of her own. (Drama!)

The receipts consist of a series of emails between Balemlay and Kylie’s team, who ask the designer if Kylie could be a gifted a few of Plugged’s clothing pieces—specifically, the brand’s camo bikinis. (Kylie’s alleged replica of the camo bathing suits also happen to be her most popular item, selling out within a day.)

The alleged emails go on to reveal that Kylie “loved” the pieces Plugged sent over, and wanted to see if the brand could make custom items for her. (Though we couldn’t find the original source of Balemlay’s receipt drops, you can read a reposting of the emails below.)

But the drama didn’t end there. Shortly after Kylie’s line was announced, Balemlay took to Instagram to slam the reality star for not only “copy and pasting” her designs, but also styling her ads in the same exact way.

“I am the influence *drops mic,” Balemlay wrote in the caption. “Copy & Paste down to the shoes I used on my models.”

The designer also shut down critics who argued that Kylie wasn’t at fault as Balemlay wasn’t the person who originated camo. She said that, though she wasn’t the ~inventor~ of camo, she did start the trend of using camo in two pieces. She evidenced this by including pics of celebrities like Rihanna, Little Mix and Keke Palmer wearing her designs.

“I can’t remember one brand that sold matching Camo two pieces that weren’t generic tees with cargo for ladies before my brand,” she wrote. “Funny how someone can just take a whole movement bc of how much money and power they have.”

In addition to being accused of stealing the ideas of a black designer, Kylie is also fighting off claims of cultural appropriation. Like the time she wore cornrows (and many times after that), Kylie is getting slammed for stealing from black culture—with many critics referencing the camo two pieces Destiny’s Child wore in their “Survivor” music video 16 years ago.

“Destiny Child’s didn’t wear camo bikinis 16 years ago in Survivor video for you to say Kylie is the one to start the trend. Respect yourself,” one critic tweeted.

“Every time this girl does something, they say she is starting a trend,” another added.

All we got to say is…yikes.



This Kylie Jenner Superfan Has 8 Tattoos Dedicated to Her

Friday, June 2nd, 2017

We know Kylie Jenner has some of the most passionate fans in the Kardashian-Jenner clan, so it’s not too big of a surprise to hear that one or two supporters out there have dedicated tattoos to her. But to learn that one superfan—who is the subject of a new short documentary titled, “Kylie Jenner’s Superfan“—inked eight (!) Kylie-inspired tattoos on his body and decorated his entire room after her, now we’re shook.

Johnny Cyrus, a 19-year-old Kylie stan from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has amassed more than 100,000 Instagram followers for his love of the 19-year-old “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star. While most kids out there are ‘gramming their ice creams or OOTDs, Cyrus’s Instagram feed is filled with pictures of swag, clothing, furniture and tattoos all themed around the younger Jenner sister. (To be fair, he does include a lot of OOTDs—all of which feature at least one piece of Kylie clothing.)

The documentary followed Cyrus as he headed to the tattoo parlor with an image of cartoon flames from a pair of Kylie-branded sweatpants. The tattoo, which he received on his forearm, rounded out his collection of eight dedicated to the makeup mogul.

His other tattoos include a pair of dripping lips from the reality star’s lip kit logo, the names of her first three lip glosses, a line of lip kit color swatches, a Kimoji of Kylie rolling her eyes, and two eyes from Kylie’s Kyshadow collection. His first tat (and arguably his most simple) was a “King Kylie” logo with a capital K and crown.

But Cyrus’s Kylie obsession doesn’t stop with his body. The camera followed him into his home where viewers got to see a bevy of Kylie-inspired trinkets, including a Jesus candle with Kylie’s head, and dozens of pillows, posters and shirts with the E! star’s face front and center. Did we mention he also has Kardashian toilet paper?

The film also documented Cyrus’s fourth time meeting Kylie at her pop-up shop in New York City. (Though he claimed that they talk “everyday” on social media—hmm, not sure what to think about that.)

“People look at me as a fan, but they also look at me as a friend,” he said in the video. “I don’t really consider [Kylie] a celebrity anymore. It’s cool that’s she’s famous, but I look at her more as a best friend.”

The documentary ended with Cyrus hoping to potentially work as “part of the team” for the reality TV family. Though he also noted that he already feels like an employee for the Kardashian-Jenner empire considering how much he promos their products.

“When I’m 70 people will probably still call me the guy with the Kylie Jenner tattoos, which is fine!” he said.

Hey, everybody’s gotta have a dream. Power to ya, Johnny.

Luna Is John Legend’s Doppelgänger in This Pic, and It’s Freaking Us Out

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s baby, Luna, has been through a lot in her 10 months on Earth. She kept up with the Kardashians when she met Kim KardashianKanye West, and their kids, North and Saint, when she was less than two months old. She has starred in some insanely cute Snapchats. She also became a music video sensation at the ripe old age of six months. In a word, she’s been prolific since pretty much day one of life.

But in a new Instagram posted by Teigen, we realized something new about Luna: She looks exactly like Legend. No joke. Like, she could be John Legend, if he were 10 months old and wearing a diaper.

Thankfully for everyone, Luna is the one wearing the diaper and Legend is the one making the great music and being the best husband ever. (Teigen and Legend are forever and ever #RelationshipGoals, amen.) Does anyone else feel slightly shocked at how much lil’ Luna resembles her famous dad, though? Our apologies to Teigen, but Luna looks nothing like her model mama in this photo and everything like her daddy.

The good news for Luna: Her parents are both beautiful, so it really doesn’t matter who she resembles—she’ll be gorgeous no matter what. In the meantime, we’re going to stare at this photo for 10 more minutes and marvel at the uncanny resemblance.

Kim Kardashian Can’t Be in the Same Room When This Completely Normal Thing Happens

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Kim Kardashian has said and done a lot of insane things in her day. But something actually stopped us in our tracks today as we scrolled through her app. Turns out that girlfriend absolutely loathes the very thing that many humans around the world encounter on an extremely regular basis.

“I hate the sleeve on a Starbucks cup,” she wrote. “I leave the room for someone to take it off for me because I cringe from the sound. It’s like nails on a chalkboard for me. I hate cardboard.”

Wait, what?! Everyone has a pet peeve, but we’ve never heard of this one. She has to leave the room to have someone remove her Starbucks sleeve?! Also, important question: If she’s paying someone to take off her coffee sleeve, can’t she pay them to deliver her coffee to her sans sleeve in the first place? And a final side note: Kim does realize that those cardboard sleeves exist on coffee cups at many coffee shops, right? Or does she think they’re exclusive to Starbucks?

This revelation was part of a very special “20 Things You Don’t Know About Me,” and we have to say—damn right we didn’t know this about her. In fact, several of the items on the list were things we really didn’t know. Usually, these “things you didn’t know about me” lists are just thinly veiled opportunities for self-aggrandizement, but this one had a few juicy details.

Other than the level-five crazy pet peeve, Kim also let loose that she has a freckle on her eyeball, cheated on tests by using the sign language alphabet, and has “never had a cold coffee drink from Starbucks or Coffee Bean.” But does she hate the Coffee Bean’s cardboard sleeve as much as Starbucks’?
