Wherever there is controversy, Kim Kardashian can be found close nearby whining, “Why are you not paying attention to me?” So naturally when Tanning Mom started grabbing headlines with her baked-to-a-crisp skin, Kim could not handle it. This weekend Kim tweeted a pic of super-tanned self with the headline, “The tannerexic [sic] mom has some serious competition!!! LOL”
But unlike the fake bake loving Tanning Mom, we think Kim at least had enough sense to brown her skin with spray tanner. (Right? Right?!) After the jump, 21 other celebrities who got a little overzealous with the spray tanner, too.
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]
