Stop The Presses! Kim Kardashian Has Basically Worn The Same Outfit 3 Times!

As I’ve said before, when you spend a portion of your every day looking at paparazzi photos of celebrities, you start to notice things. For example, that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are always whispering to each other. Another thing I noticed? That Kim Kardashian, who changes outfits two to three times a day on average, has worn a white peplum blouse (I think the one she wore on July 11 is slightly different that the other two) with either skinny black or white pants three times in the last month and a half. Now, for the average person, this is nothing! But I always imagined that Kim was like Diddy and Justin Timberlake, who have both admitted to throwing away clothes (or underwear) after wearing them once. I assumed she would never wear the same thing twice, let alone three times. I, for one, am glad to see her recycling looks, especially one that looks this great on her. Kim K., she’s just like us, in this one teeny, tiny way! [Photos: Fame/Flynet]

The Ladies Of The Cut Go Peplums-Out And Take Trends For A Test Drive In NYC

The peplum is definitely à la mode (thanks, Alber!), and why not? It’s a flattering style that serves to hug and highlight your best assets while helping to draw attention away from the rest — sounds pretty convincing to me! However, the question remains: exactly how wearable is this high-fashion trend? Can normal (read: non-model or celebrity) people pull off sporting a peplum on, say, the subway commute to work? NY Mag’s style and industry blog The Cut, who’s always there to hook it up with the more avant-garde test drives, sent three of their employees out into the field wearing peplums to see how they fared amongst the masses. I should probably mention that by “the field,” I mean Times Square. Go big or go home! Check out the video after the jump to get the verdict (and a couple of laughs along the way) and tell me — would you stick out the possibility of stares and brave one of these bad boys? I’m starting to think I would, but as my luck would have it, peplums will probably be passé by the time I work up the courage. [NY Mag.com] Keep reading »

This might look like a leftover from the costume department of a Capital One viking commercial, but it’s actually a “Peplum Waist Belt” by BCBG Max Azria. Apparently you’re supposed to strap it on over a simple dress for some instant peplum action. All we see is a glorified loin cloth. It’s on sale for 50 bucks, in case you’re into that kind of thing.
