Tag Archives: Kim Kardashian

I was reading this week’s Look magazine (17th October 2011) when I came across a double page spread titled ‘The Secret New Online Labels The Celebs Love’ (page 16). Sure enough, “the glamourous online hit” Celeb Boutique was featured.

I first discovered Celeb Boutique earlier this year when I was reading one of my favourite blogs online and my eye caught an advert which led me to the retailer‘s website. I was very impressed with the dresses on offer and couldn’t resist making an order.  The concept behind the online store is that you can get the same popular outfits as worn by celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé and Amber Rose.

Quite a few British celebrities have been spotted wearing the retailer’s dresses including Abbey Clancy, The SaturdaysRochelle, and TOWIE’s Amy Childs, to name a few.

I went to the online shop and purchased myself a sexy little gold number last month for my birthday. I bought the ‘Kimmy Adelisa’ Gold Strapless Bodycon Dress priced at £89.99.

I was chuffed with how quickly my order arrived and was pleasantly surprised with the cute ribbon-tied flat box it was presented in.

This dress was inspired by an extremely similar bodycon dress that Kim Khardashian (whose style I absolutely adore) wore. She has such a gorgeous figure that she could pretty much wear anything and look stunning. For women who aren’t as voluptuous as her, this dress gives promise of holding you in, smoothing you out and accentuating the curves you do have.

Kim wore hers with a gorgeous pair of gold, studded Christian Louboutins, but since I don’t have a disposable income to rival hers, I found an equally gorgeous pair of heels from New Look to go with the outfit.

I accessorised with a gold brown gemstone necklace, chain drop earings and a shiny gold clutch bag.

The dress actually does what it says in the tin (for want of a better phrase). It fits your body so well and tightly that it almost gives the illusion that you’re wearing body paint.

Now, I wasn’t aiming to look like a celeb or imitate anyone’s style. I just simply wanted a fancy, figure-hugging dress to wear on a night out to celebrate turning a year older, and it just so happened those that were on offer appealed to me.  Really happy with my purchase and would definitely buy a few more dresses from there.

“How can you say no to that?”, a friend exclaimed earlier today. I had to ask myself  ‘Do men really find this type of figure/physique in a woman sexually appealing?’. Like seriously?

Please, don’t for one moment mistake me for hating on tennis star Serena Williams– who undeniably has plenty junk in her trunk- but I personally find it a little too much junk. Masculine, muscly junk. There’s a thin line between a toned derriere and just pure muscle.

Sorry to sound vulgar guys but those glutes would break your d**k if she sat on you! And those powerful legs! Oh Lord! She’s not lacking in the bust region either. Some may say she’s all woman and she’s clearly not ashamed to show it all off in her figure hugging, cleavage revealing outfits. Good for her.

Yes, it’s great to celebrate and appreciate all variations of the female figure but I just don’t get the lusting my male friends and acquaintances do over her body. Are men no longer attracted to the softer, feminine figure like that of which Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian possess? Don’t they appreciate a little jiggle and wobble? If not, unless you hit the gym for three hours a day, every day, the vast majority of us less athletic-looking, less well-endowed women are doomed.

What’s your view? Does Serena do it for you or do you agree that her image is too masculine to be sexy?
