Accepting The Kardashians

It’s funny that after having several fashion lines (you could try Sears), a multi-location clothing boutique (thankfully Chicago isn’t one of them) and a multitude of other things I literally can’t keep up with (pun intended) that it took Kanye West to get the fashion industry to accept Kim Kardashian. Which is ironic because no one really took his line that seriously anyway…

Because Fashion Is Fun

Fashion people can take themselves way too seriously. At the end of the day, it’s just clothes. Maybe some accessories, always some killer shoes. But 1991 Inc is reminding us that fashion is fun and being weird is totally acceptable.

Don’t cry Kim, Anna gives everyone that look…

QVC’s Live from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Runway Show

This weekend, I attended the QVC runway show and after party in NYC. I have been so impressed with the branding initiatives QVC has implemented within the last few years so I was very excited for this event. The runway show displayed various looks from several QVC designers, with a front row including Matthew Settle and Kelly Rutherford (AKA Rufus and Lilly) along with AnnaLynne McCord.

The after party was cool because we got to watch live broadcasts of Heidi Klum, Isaac Mizrahi and the Kardashian’s collections. I had a really great time and I can’t wait to share with you more New York Fashion Week updates!

Red Carpet Fashion: 2011 Video Music Awards (Part 1)

I should title this “black carpet fashion” but if you didn’t watch the VMAs you might be confused (the carpet was black…not red). And if you didn’t watch the VMAs, you’re very lucky because I lost several brain cells during the 2 hours (3 if you include the pre show). But let’s get down to it…it’s clear that several stylists are still on summer vacay and these “celebs” had to make due with what they had lying around (or with what people would loan them). Please note I did not include anyone from the Jersey Shore because let’s be honest…they’re all a train wreck right?

So the fashion is not the best I’ve ever seen, but thankfully there were a few people who stepped it up and made my time [somewhat] worth while.

Photobucket Selena Gomez in Julien Macdonald

She’s such a cute girl and although normally safe, I do like her red carpet choices. However, this one is NOT one of them. It has a hint of Marchesa but with a darker, witch-like vibe. It’s just not her! Stick to the simple stuff Selena…you’ll thank me later.

Photobucket Victoria Justice in Theia

Zero idea who this is. I’ve seen this dress a million times on the red carpet, usually worn by people I don’t know. It’s the cycle of D-list celeb fashion I guess…

Photobucket Kim Kardashian in Kaufmanfranco

I had to include a photo from behind of this dress…because it’s that hideous. 4 words–Skin colored back panel.

Photobucket Kelly Rowland in Falguno Shane Peacock

There’s alot going on with that dress, it’s not my favorite of the night…but DAMN she looks good.

Photobucket Katy Perry in Atelier Versace

THIS came from the house of Versace? Disappointing…

Photobucket JoJo in Marco Marco

I’m sorry JoJo…when did you become relevant again? I must have missed the memo. I’ll be sure to dig into my Napster playlist circa 2004. Oh and your dress looks cheap.

Photobucket Britney Spears in Moschino

Considering all of her red carpet disasters in the last 5 or so years, this isn’t terrible. I would have just gone with different shoes but this is a step in the right direction.

PhotobucketBeyonce in Lanvin

I’m trying to find something wrong (because that’s just how I work) but I really can’t. This is absolute perfection. The color, the cut…everything. Bravo Beyonce! Oh, and congrats :)

Photobucket Nicki Minaj in…toys?

It looked like her toy chest got angry, attacked her, taped her mouth shut and sent her to the VMAs. And I’ll leave it at that.

Keep checking back for part 2…coming soon!

Kim Kardashian: Cover Girl for Glamour’s February Issue

I must start off by saying this…is there anything Kim Kardashian hasn’t done? She has her own clothing line, a collaboration with a clothing line, [had] a credit card, her own fragrance, makes appearances, covers magazines, and I’m sure one million other things I can’t think of. My question for you Kim is…what’s next?

That’s enough of that…let’s check out Kim on the cover of Glamour‘s February issue.

And now for what Kim has to say…

On her success…

“I’d be foolish not to take some of these opportunities that are coming my way. We all know this can go away at any moment.”

On her sisters…
“We work really hard, and we fight like normal sisters fight, and we make up. We’re so supportive of each other. We always stick together. Having lots of siblings is like having built-in best friends.”

On dating…
“It’s easier to just be single and not have a relationship. How do you get to know someone on a reality show? Some people think that they can handle it, and then they really can’t.”

On being a sex symbol…
“It’s definitely powerful. I don’t find myself as sexy as everyone thinks. I’m a lot more insecure than people would assume, but with little stupid things. When I get dressed, I’m always so indecisive.”

On being in Playboy
“It was an independence thing for me. I was always by the book, such the straight arrow when it came to pleasing my parents and being a good daughter. I felt like this was one decision that only I could make. And I think it looks great. I’ll have those pictures forever.”

On having every aspect of her family’s life recorded…
“If there’s something that we’re going through, it’s going to get out anyway. It’ll be on the cover of a tabloid, and it’ll be twisted the completely wrong way. So why not tell our story?”


On women being comfortable with their body…
“It’s a process. You have to learn to accept it. You have to learn to like what you see in the mirror. There are definitely times when I don’t feel like myself, but you have to fake it until you make it.”


On what she thought she’d be doing at 30…
“If you had asked me five years ago what I would be doing at 30, I would have said, ‘Married with a kid or two.’ Not in a million years did I dream that I would be doing all the things that I’m doing.”

The February issue of Glamour will be available on newsstands nationwide January 11.
