The latest installment in the Kim Kardashian vs. Anna Wintour saga leaves a puzzling taste in the mouths of fashionistas everywhere. A week has passed since rumors first began to fly that Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue (and consequential arbiter of all things en vogue), is not only not a card-carrying member of the Kardashian fan klub, but that she refuses to deign her glossy to feature Kim in any way. (See also: spotlight-hungry publicity queen Kim’s eyebrow-raising absence from the Met Ball.)
Then, unsettlingly, the reality star announced this morning (via Twitter, naturally) that she’ll be the subject of a photoshoot in the July/August issue of Vogue Italia. But the magazine’s editor, Franca Sozzani, tweeted a correction to say that Kim will actually be in Uomo Vogue, the men’s offshoot. Kim also posted the above picture from the spread — she looks uncannily like her mother, doesn’t she? Spooky! [Fashionista]
Are you dissatisfied with your eyebrows? Would you like to replace your measly sperm-shaped squiggles with, say, the lush, well-groomed brows of one Kim Kardashian? Well, now you can — there’s organ transplants, there’s hair transplants, and now I introduce to you eyebrow transplants. Dr. Sanusi Umar of DermHair Clinic in Redondo Beach, California, an expert in hair transplant and replacement surgery, (down by the ocean, it was so dismal…) developed an innovational procedure called “uGraft” that uses a patient’s leg or arm hair to fabricate a whole new eyebrow. Lest you suffer mental images of sliced-off skin and sewn-on strands, let me tell you how the good doctor goes about this: using no scalpel, stitches, or incisions, Dr. Umar practices a specialized “single follicle extraction and transfer” technique. Apparently, the most requested eyebrows belong to Kim K. Lovely eyebrows they are, but I don’t think I’ll be rushing to get this procedure any time soon, thanks. [The Stir]

Today in Things That Are Not At All Surprising: the queen of American fashion and the queen of American television are not gal pals. Rumor has it that the reason Kanye West turned up solo to the Met Ball on Monday night (and looked très bitter the entire evening) was that ladyfriend Kim Kardashian was left off the guest list that Vogue’s Anna Wintour, the co-chair of the event, had a hand in penning. Take these reports with a grain of salt — like most unfounded celeb gossip, they come from an “unnamed source” — but this beef sounds pretty damn reasonable to me. Kim has landed the cover, if not multiple, of nearly every major women’s glossy, but all things Kardashian have been suspiciously absent from Anna’s publication. It’s not a stretch to say that the Wintour/Vogue/Met Ball brand (definition: class) is on a diametrically opposite side of the spectrum from Kim’s brand (definition: ass). Case in point: though she wasn’t in attendance, she did live-Tweet the entire event. That’s not very Chanel, now is it? [Fashionista]
It seems Kris Jenner wants Kim Kardashian to star in another TV wedding and this time Kanye West should be the groom! Kim and Kanye have only recently taken their romance public, but they are rumored to already be talking about a future together.
You’d think, with Kim Kardashians recent marriage to Kris Humphries only lasting 72 days, the very last thing any of them would want to discuss is marriage. Especially since Kim and Kris are still not even legally divorced. Instead it seems the opposite is true. According to Radar Online, momager, Kris Jenner is not only completely supportive of Kim and Kanye as a couple, but already is thinking nuptials! Read more…
