When you look at as many paparazzi photos as I do, looking for new, interesting shots to post, you start to notice trends. Amy Winehouse always wore ballet flats, for example. Paris Hilton always poses like she has to pee. And, as I realized this morning, Kanye West is always whispering to girlfriend Kim Kardashian. What’s so secretive that he often blocks his mouth with his hand, so paparazzi can’t read his lips? I decided to imagine the possibilities….
As far as models go, Anja Rubik boasts a pretty decent level of notoriety. She flashed one seriously barbed hipbone at the Met Ball, then managed to redeem herself, crazy eyes and all, in Cannes. Oh, there was also that time Kanye West name-dropped her in a song (the same one he used as a vehicle to confess his love for Kim Kardashian, no less), but we don’t talk about that. Anja has the credentials for sure, but does she really have the fashion chops necessary to back it up? It would seem so: I love this simple pleated chiffon gown, and paired with the flat thong sandals and fresh, natural hair and makeup, she looks practically beach-ready. For an incredibly glamorous beach, that is.
Kim, you look great in this cape and Lestat blouse! It’s awesome! You might even be wearing less makeup these days! Probably not though. I have one serious, serious conundrum, though, and that is pant-boots. Are these pant-boots, like you had on the other day? Is it pants, tucked into open-toed boots? Why do open-toed boots exist? Where are you getting all of these pant-boots? Is there a store for that? Is it DW Kanye West? Is Kanye enabling this? Worse still, is he encouraging it? Is a line of pant-boots your next business venture? … Hey, don’t get any ideas. Pant-boots are not, and never will be, a thing. I hope. But then again, I also said the same thing about you. You see how that turned out.
While I find “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” to be something of a boil upon the ass of pop culture, I generally co-sign on what Kim K. chooses to wear. But it seems like maybe her latest romantical kollaboration with Kanye West may have a negative impact on her fashion choices. Witness: This horrid ensemble, which Kim wore out and about in Paris. It’s hard to decide what’s the worst thing about it — whether it’s the pants, or the blousy, weird, asymmetrical turtleneck top. And oh, God, the pants are pant-boots. The whole thing is just a fail. Kim, you can do better than that! Keep reading »
And then he promptly deleted it. Doesn’t Kanye know the internet never forgets? Full NSFW image, after the jump! [via The Sun UK]
UPDATED: God, the internet is such a tricky trickster! So, TMZ says that this isn’t Kim Kardashian. It’s a porn star named Amia Miley. And that the rumor that Kanye had tweeted this photo, and that it was Kim, was all part of “Wankster Wednesday” where goofballs try to get bogus rumors started. And Kanye’s people say he never posted it. Who to believe? TMZ or The Sun? Regardless of whose butt it is, it’s a nice one. Also, a great ad for the banana industry. [TMZ]

Kim Kardashian has pretty much become a household name. We’ve witnessed her relationships build, and we, of course, have witnessed them completely fall apart. We’ve read about her divorce, her embarrassment, her shame, but it looks like things may be falling into place for this reality TV star. According to sources, it seems her and Kanye West have decided to take their relationship to the next level: cohabitation!
Since most of us watch every little moment of Kim’s life unfold, we’re, of course, rooting for forever in this relationship. But that means compromise. So what is the proper way to consolidate two completely separate lives and people into one house without TOO much drama? Well, I researched 9 tips that will, hopefully, make this huge change a little bit easier, just in case you were thinking of taking the plunge yourself. Read more… Photo: Fame/Flynet
The other morning, as I was walking to work, I passed a long line of guys passed out in camping chairs on the sidewalk. They’d been there all night, presumably, waiting for the much-anticipated new Air Yeezy 2 shoe — the second collaboration between Kanye West (that’s Yeezy) and Nike. The crowd began dispersing as I walked by, after the 34th St. Foot Locker put up a sign saying that they wouldn’t be getting any of the shoes in, and the sneakerheads would have to look elsewhere to cop a pair.
And they did. According to The New York Daily News, pairs of the shoes, which retail for $245, are going for as much as $80,000 on eBay (thoug most pre-orders are around $3,000 to $5,000). The shoes will officially be released on Saturday.
The culture of shoe collectors and sneakerheads dictates that the waiting in line and camping out is part of the process. You get to say that you were the first in line, or the first at the counter. But is there anything comparable in women’s fashion? Have you ever waited in line, or camped out for a special bag, or limited edition piece of jewelry? Tell us in the comments!
The Kim Kardashian-Kanye West publicity stunt—er, relationship—lives on: A jealous Kim has now banned all other women from hanging around her man. “Kim is incredibly protective of Kanye and doesn’t want any women near him unless she is there—even his friends,” a source tells the Sun. Rihanna, who has joined Kanye and Jay-Z on stage, “wasn’t even allowed to go into his dressing room without Kim being there.” But perhaps Kim needn’t worry: The New York Daily News reports that Kanye blew off a planned performance at Cannes last week to have dinner with Kim, and adds that Rihanna is dating New York Knick JR Smith anyway.
