Find out what went down this past week in the fashion world:
(1) Taylor Swift fans sent death threats to EDM clothing company, Bad Kids Clothing. Swift fans were threatening Bad Kids Clothing because the company had printed a custom t- shirt for one of their friends. The t-shirt listed all of the men that Swift had been involved with. The Swifties were offended!
(2) Diane von Furstenberg recently planted a giant lipstick tree in her backyard.
(3) Mad Men's Janie Bryant is set to host her own reality TV series of fashion and design competitions.
(4) Kanye West's A.P.C collection debuted on Monday, and all of the merchandise was sold within the first twenty four hours.
(5) A new facial recognition device was recently designed by NEC IT Solutions. The device will allow store clerks to scan the faces of customers and later be notified which of those customers are VIP- allowing employees to more effectively cater to their clients.
But one thing they've done so, so right? Explode onto the makeup scene like the champs that they are.
Kylie Lip Kits have been a staple in a lot of people's makeup bags for a while now. She's already collaborated with her sister, Khloe, for one collection, and now, she's bringing Kim on as an official collaborator too.
This four colour kit comes out on Kylie's website on April 25, and is going for $45 USD. It might put you out a pretty penny if you're going to buy it in CAD and have it shipped to Montreal, but honestly, I think it's pretty worth it.
But I love Kim K, and honestly, I think if she moved to Canada (Kanada?), it would be a beautiful thing. Sure, it might be a little bit weird to picture the Kardashians trudging through a slushy Montreal street, but trust. Kim and her krew would fit right in.
1. If you need a fresh start, there's no better place than Canada.
The Kardashians are known for taking their family vacations in Vale, Colorado, which is a luxurious AF town centered on skiing. Sound familiar? This pretty much fits the bill for Mont Tremblant, another luxury (and awesome) skii spot.
3. There's no place more worthy of a romantic KimYe date than Quebec City.
Other than having a rich history (which is romantic to some of us!), Quebec is full of gorgeous spots, like the beautiful Chateau Frontenac hotel, and even better places to go grab a bite to eat. Who even needs Paris, TBH.
4. The beaches in the country? Picture perfect for a Kardashian vacation.
Not just our restaurants, which are all incredibly awesome; but we're also health nuts throughout the country. Which means you can go pretty much anywhere in Canada and be guaranteed organic, tasty, and super healthy food choices - which is right up the Kardashian's alley.
6. There are beautiful people everywhere in Canada, so Kim would fit right in.
In numerous current episodes of The Kardashians, Kourtney and Khloe are spotted working out in Khloe's giant courtyard.
So, it's safe to say most of the Kardashians love to keep active... And what better place to live your best healthy lifestyle than by, say, jogging through Banff National Park? Or paddling through Moraine Lake? Or hiking up Mount Logan in the Yukon? (Okay, a bit of a stretch. But still).
Personal story time: I love Kim Kardashian. Okay, I love all the Kardashians. I feel like they know their industry unlike anyone else... honestly, I could go on forever and ever listing all the reasons why I love them so much. But I won't do that to you guys. It'll be pages and pages long, and I know not everyone feels the same way. That's cool though, friend, no worries. Not everyone likes the same things in life.
But I do love the Kardashians; and when I found out she's supposed to be coming to Montreal according to Mélissa Paradis, who, when asked whether or not Kim was coming to town, said that she responded "Of course I'll be there," I actually cried tears of real excitement. And when I found out that she was in Toronto, too? And that she actually ventured out into the city? Guys, I can't describe the feelings I felt.
Since one of my goals in life is to meet Kim K, I immediately tried to predict the places she'd come to in Montreal, based on where she went in Toronto. I'm not saying with 100% certainty she'll be at these places - but if she were to go anywhere in the city, I strongly feel like this is what she'd do.
Kim was spotted shopping at Holt Renfrew in Toronto, a couple of hours before Kanye's second concert was set to begin at Toronto's Air Canada Centre. Note: Holt Renfrew is roughly a 15 minute drive from the Air Canada Centre, so it's clear that they didn't travel very far - smart, since they were out at roughly 3:00 and the concert was set to begin about 5 hours later.
Knowing that they're probably going to want to stay within the parameters of the Bell Centre - especially since they have even less time to chill in Montreal than they did for Toronto - it makes sense that if Kim were to go shopping, it would probably be at Ogilvy.
Although she might venture into Downtown Montreal's Holt Renfrew (and maybe even the underground shopping malls, just for the novelty factor), I think she's more likely to get her shop on at Ogilvy, which at this point is an established Montreal retail landmark, happens to be close to the Bell Centre, and has an incredibly solid selection of brands to choose from.
Seriously, have you ever been to Milos? Try and tell me this place doesn't have Kim K plastered all over it, from the decor, to the service, to the impeccable food. Plus, Milos is a known celeb hangout in Montreal, so I feel like if Kim K were to dine anywhere in the city, it would be here.
One major downfall to this hypothesis, though, is that Milos is in the Plateau, a full 20 minute drive away from the Bell Centre - which is a huge chunk when you're pressed for time. But I think that given its popularity, Kim would consider coming to visit the Plateau - especially since Kylie spent some time in the neighbourhood when she came for her birthday in 2015.
Continuing with that thought, Schwartz's, located in the Plateau (and very near Station 67, one of the spots Kylie hit up during her birthday last year) is a notoriously famous Montreal eatery that just happens to be owned by Celine Dion - and was recently visited by her, as well.
Now, Kim Kardashian went to grab ice cream at Sweet Jesus in Toronto, which is notorious for their mind-blowing ice cream treats. Although we have awesome ice cream spots as well (and I'll get to that), I feel like Kim would not leave Montreal without tasting our signature - and seriously tasty - dish.
Going to Schwartz's would kill two birds with one stone (remember, they might possibly be pressed for time), fulfilling that poutine crave and allowing Kim K and her entourage to visit a venerated Montreal institution.
Honestly, the ice cream at Diperie is amazing, and I can totally see Kim K stopping by one of Montreal's most popular ice cream spots - of anything for that ice cream selfie in front of the blue wall.
Admittedly, though, this point is based purely on the fact that Kim visited Sweet Jesus in Toronto. In Toronto, Sweet Jesus is a 10 minute drive from the concert venue where Kanye's concert was being held, and La Dip is a bit further away from the Bell Centre... but I think it's totally worth the time loss, TBH, especially if she will be spending some time in the Plateau.
