- Perhaps Kim Kardashian should’ve thought twice before loaning little sister Kendall Jenner a dress. The reality star, 31, blogged that her 16-year-old sibling borrowed her sleeveless black- and-white frock by Azzedine Alaia this week. Kim and Kendall had to know, however, that sharing clothes would leave the rest of us with quite a style showdown. Sounds like it’s time for our very first sister edition of who wore it best!

Up-and-coming model Kendall showed off her long legs in the dress. She sported it with a sleek ponytail, but otherwise let it speak for itself as she walked the red carpet for the premiere of “The Hunger Games” Monday in L.A.
More than a year ago, Kim made the design just part of her look for the NYC soiree celebrating the season finale of E!’s “The Spin Crowd” – remember that show?! – way back on October 6, 2010. Big sis Kim styled her hair the same way as Kendall’s, but she also added black tights, an oversized belt, and, of course, plenty of makeup.
This is one frock that we shouldn’t be surprised to see any of the Kardashian gals wearing, because they obviously adore it. “It’s such an amazing dress!” Kim gushed on her blog. “I got it when I was in Paris with my mom in 2010 when we met Mr. Alaia himself. I remember I always used to try on my mom’s Alaia dresses when I was younger, so I’m glad I have younger sisters I can share my favorite pieces with.” While Kim’s sentiment is sweet, the truth is, sisters or not, only one woman can emerge victorious. In this case, the clear winner for me is Kendall, thanks to her simple styling. Kim’s tights and belt are just too much to add when she’s already wearing a busy pattern. Do you agree?
Check Out Some Celebs Who Do More Than Dress Alike – These Stars Look Alike:
Michael Jackson‘s daughter Paris made a bombshell announcement to friends … telling them the MJ album released in the wake of the singer’s death did NOT contain MJ’s actual voice … it was an imposter.
TMZ has learned … the announcement was made during an online video chat with several friends in 2010 … just before the “Michael” album was released, which contains several previously unreleased tracks allegedly performed by Michael Jackson.
The video chat was recorded … and Paris joked about the footage eventually “leaking” to the Internet.
Paris had made the announcement in the midst of rumors that MJ’s parts on the “Michael” album were REALLY performed by an MJ sound-alike named Jason Malachi … but both Jason and Sony denied the allegations.
During the video chat, Paris played one of the songs from the album, “Hold My Hand” … and one of her friends asks why the singer doesn’t sound like MJ.
Paris replied, “It’s NOT him … the whole album isn’t even him!! Go online … go on YouTube and look up Jason Malachi. That’s him!!”
She continues, “I should know if it’s him or not because he would sing to me all the time.”
TMZ has learned a recording of Paris’ video message is being shopped to various media outlets … and we’re told “Offers are on the table.”

Top 10 Lingerie
Get ready for a panty raid with our list of the sexiest lingerie in the world. These luxe brands are favorites of celebrities such as Kate Moss and Elisabetta Canalis.
It seems cray … but a simple warning that Jay Z and Kanye West included at the top of their “N**gas in Paris” video may have been the difference between life and death for some of their seizure-prone fans … this according to multiple epilepsy organizations.
The concern is obvious … since the video is filled with strobe lights and quick edits. The warning at the top of the video reads, “This video has been identified by Epilepsy Action to potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised.”
Now, the Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy tell TMZ … “50,000 individuals lose their lives each year due to seizures and related causes. We applaud artists like Kanye West and Jay Z who recognize the potential dangers in their videos, movies and performances and are conscientious enough to warn patients and their families about the risks.”
And CURE isn’t alone in their praise … a rep for the Epilepsy Therapy Project tells us the organization “appreciates the sensitivities that Kanye and Jay Z showed in appropriately warning individuals with photosensitive epilepsy that their video may cause seizures.”
The rep adds, “Given the 4 million people who suffer from epilepsy in the US alone, we need to work together with the music industry on how best to destigmatize the condition and stop seizures and epilepsy once and for all so everyone can enjoy the music.”
Catwalk fashion film
‘Fashion film’ is a new editorial format which is in the meanwhile a beloved feature in fashion magazines. A fashion film is like a photo editorial but with moving pictures which communicate a ‘story’.
And now, even catwalk videos (normally without a linear story made of inviting introduction, thrilling high point, relaxing end) become more like fashion films (which is defined by having a dramatic structure) such as seen at the ‘Highlights: Burberry Prorsum Menswear Autumn/Winter 2012 Show‘ video with the music track ‘Paris In The Rain’ by The Waterboys from the presentation on 14 January 2012 in Milan.
The fashion film begins with the view on Milan and zooms into the city directly to the backstage area where the models’ heads are styled up (hair by Matt Mulhall). The camera captures details of the collection like umbrellas with wooden animal heads of hounds and ducks as handles. These signature items of the collection are used dramatically at the opening of the show as protection from a ‘theatrical’ rain and again at the defilee. With the appearance of Burberry’s Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey the camera moves from the stage to the backstage area into a relaxed and happy scenery with the designer and his team.

Wo in aller Welt wird David Beckhams Karriere ihn hinführen?
Nachdem der Fünfjahresvertrag des Fußballstars mit L.A. Galaxy im November mit einem großen Gewinn in den MLS Cup Championships endete, ist seine berufliche Zukunft ungewiss.
Eins steht jedenfalls fest, er und Gattin Victoria werden nicht mit den Kids nach Paris ziehen.
Der Vorsitzende des Fußballvereins Paris Saint-Germain, Nasser al-Khelaifi, bestätigte, dass der britische Hottie nicht dem Pariser Club beitreten wird:
“David Beckham kommt nicht”, sagte al-Khelaifi beim Tennisturnier Qatar Open am Dienstag. „Wir sind ein bisschen enttäuscht. Aber beide Parteien waren sich einig, dass es besser wäre, den Vertrag nicht abzuschließen.”
