I just saw a spread of articles running around a journalist from Elledotcom trying to wear Kim K clothes for a week and then now trying to have her hair and makeup routine for her daily life (I lived like Kim Kardashian for a week series by Sally Holmes that include fashion , beauty, diet and I liked it cause series kind of show that its almost impossible for regular people ). First of all you need that glam squad everyday not time to time. You need to go to gym and shower and sit for hours for that hair and makeup process and you need to have at least 2 beauty Pros working every day only for you (and alot of assistants) . And you need a stylist that will make you a style icon (someone like Monica Rose (she doesn’t style her anymore I think- just her sisters) who will style you the way you would never wear those and then revealing clothing showing too much on) honey actually you can not wear those clothes in public (see thru tees).
Despite being pregnant or carrying your toddler infront of paps how comfortable can it be to be on the high heels and stilettos all the time?
The easy laid back life is what we need- especially if you live in a big city, we need our space we need our time but when you are a celebrity you are captured by photographers every time you step out of home so its a full time job to look good and camera ready.
I have no problem with glam squads – if you can afford it, it should be the best luxury to have pro hairstylists and makeup artists coming to your home and preparing you every morning or night for events and things also. It should be also dreamy getting paid to wear designer clothes (no you don’t pay the super expensive price tags you are a celeb with a PR status and when you wear it, it will be sold out in stores next day). It should be dreamy to wear your favorite designers latest collections before it hits the stores , plus for free !
When I was a teenager and in my early teens the role models – trendy celebs were alot different than Kim K body type and figure (Beyonce was thinner and was under popularity shadow of Britney/Christina). Popular celebs all over magazines were Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow (dating Brad Pitt wow!) , Cindy Crawford, Cameron Diaz (dating serial popular actors and leading roles in movies) ... Mostly blonde tall modelesque skinny stars with huge movies and ad campaigns. 90s celebrities were more beautiful and perfectionesque. American magazines were super popular and I was reading what they wear and which products they were using and all that 90210 series of what it was like to live in Beverly Hills (now the world get to know the Hollywood lifestyle from Kardashians – I would still prefer Jennie Garth, Tiffani Amber Theissen and 90210).
CRITISM: I don’t think any women with casual busy life would be into wearing high heels everyday (think you work late hours or having kids to run after). And wearing über revealing see through and tight clothes can not be easy in public (do you have bodyguards to protect you from hillbillies and stalkers?).
Splurges and wearing stylish clothes and having treatments and hair and makeup is the best thing about being a woman and I would never exchange my designer clothes and makeup stash or accessories to a no colour plain life. They are the highlights of being a woman and celebrating it. I kind of like visiting hair salons and getting treatments done and manicures and everything.
Being famous in Hollywood is a full time job and expensive but you can also choose a not caring life like Britney and your pap candids can be no hair and makeup (looking not stylish actually for the last 15 years she needs to hire Rachel Zoe ASAP ). I guess Kim K saw those candids from 2002 and promised herself not to be catched by paps with no glam done.
