Style Scoop: Kim Kardashian Takes Paris, Vanessa Hudgens is Untouched, J.Crew Bites into Beauty


Well, well, well. We spy, with our glam eye, Kim Kardashian front row at Valentino’s couture show sandwiched between the fashion house’s founding designer Valentino Garavani and his partner Giancarlo Giammetti. According to Instagram, the reality star also had a nice chat with Carine Roitfeld who showed North West’s mother something on her phone. So, yeah, that happened. [Fashionista]

Vanessa Hudgens is returning as the face of Bongo for their Fall 2014 ad campaign. Here’s the catch, though: She appears in the images completely natural and untouched. “This is my second season working with Bongo and it’s been such a treat!” the actress said. “The clothes really make me feel carefree and confident, which is why I love that the final ad images are unretouched. It’s so important for girls to remember that real beauty shines from within and I’m so proud that Bongo is choosing to send such a positive message with this campaign.” [Glam Inbox]

Bite into this: J.Crew is teaming up with Bite Beauty to dress up your lips all summer long with a collection of exclusive matte lip colors. There is Edie, a fiery red-orange, Lola, a punchy watermelon tone, and Sophie, a soft petal pink. “J.Crew has defined itself as the trendsetter of sophisticated cool,” Bite Beauty’s founder Susanne Langmuir said. “We’re thrilled to have created three electric shades that epitomize the J.Crew girl and serve as the ultimate accessory. But, it’s more than that; it’s about creating a statement look for lips that is truly fresh and beautiful.” [Refinery29]

All the world needs is another Kim Kardashian. And yet, here we are, with little North West following in her mother’s fashionable footsteps—if we take this reality star's words to heart. North “doesn’t like pink or purple—she likes greys, creams, oatmeal colors and black,” Kardashian said. “Every once and awhile she’ll add in some color, like with her little Air Yeezys, but other than that she likes to keep it simple.” And as for Kimmie’s style: “I’m definitely way sexier ever since having my daughter! The struggle to get back into shape after giving birth is such a real one. It’s so difficult to do, and afterwards, all you want to do is show off your body and feel sexy. I mean, my style’s definitely more simple. I just want to be a MILF.” …Oh. [Lucky]

First Cosmopolitan’s website gets a new look and now the glossy is heading to reality TV? Reportedly, Cosmo’s EIC Joanna Coles has been making the rounds with TV execs. Apparently she’s been approached to do a reality show based on her life. [Page Six]

… Another day, another model who doesn’t consider their job a thing. “Well, just being a model, you’re not really supposed to speak, ever, really, so I’m a rare breed,” Chrissy Teigen said on Late Night With Seth Meyers. “And it does get me in trouble sometimes.” She continued, “I am paid a good amount of money to not blink for 12 hours. That’s all that ends up having to happen. Listen, you get to travel, meet a lot of people; it’s fun, but I don’t take it very seriously, no.” Maybe she’ll take her new cooking show, Snack Off, on MTV, a little more seriously. [Lucky]
