Could the Kardashian sisters’ world domination be coming to a close end?
First came that whole Pre-paid Kardashian Kard debacle, followed by an embarrassing charity stunt gone wrong, plus low sales of their new book Kardashian Konfidential, and now a new report that reveals their fashion “empire” is in crisis.
The reason? Well the unofficial reason rather is simply because the line did not perform as well as Bebe would have liked. Bebe president Emilia Fabricant however put it in nicer terms. “The sisters do still have relevance. We need to move with fashion and we want to be first in the fashion world with everybody else and not fall behind,” Fabricant told WWD. “We are definitely assessing the situation.”
It doesn’t end there as a column in Thursday’s New York Times gave a scathing review of the sisters’ NYC boutique store Dash.
“Dash is a fashion desert, just oodles of drippy cowl necks and embellished cap sleeves and synthetic fibers,” said the article. “Clothes are essentially split into two categories of fit: vacuum-sealed and hot-air balloon.”
The writer Jon Caramanica then added that the overpriced clothes, including an animal print dress for $308 and a hat for $430, seemed questionable at best. “You could wear this look, in the same way you could hire an enthusiastic 5-year-old as your stylist.” Ouch.
And finally, Khloe Kardashian is coming under fire for some comments she made during her recent appearance on Lopez Tonight. “They basically are just raping you in public,” Khloe, 26, complained comparing the airport patdowns to rape. “I got asked the other day, do you want to go for a screening or get padded down,” the reality star said. “I don’t want that X-Ray to see everything, honey!”
According to RadarOnline, victims’ right advocate groups are very unhappy with Khloe’s comments. “I think it was an ill-informed thing for her to say, “ said Jazmin Robles, a community education coordinator with the Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center,. “It was a very strong comment to make because rape is defined as ‘forceful penetration’ and a lot of young women look up to celebrities like the Kardashians.”
