You may or may not know, but I am a kloset Kardashian fan. Back in '11 I upgraded my TV package to include E! so I could watch KUWTK. I know. So when the lovely ladies from Lipsy approached me with the opportunity to interview one Miss Khloé Kardashian (who, along with Kourtney and Kim, has designed a sleek new collection for the British brand), I kouldn't refuse. So on Thursday night, I, along with a few of my favourite bloggers, found myself at the Langham Hotel in the presence of a glowing KK. I've been lucky enough to interview some pretty high-profile celebrities for work, but few have had such a fangirl-inducing effect on me as KhloKhlo. It was surreal, to say the least. Please note, in the pictures above, Khloé and Knatalie's 'closed mouths' and 'smiley mouths' poses. Totally unrehearsed. I'm basically an honorary Kardashian.
Without sounding krazily sycophantic, Khloé is beautiful - and oh so tiny (she told us she'd lost weight over the last year) - in real life. And boy, does she have bling. I kould hardly keep my beady eyes off her GIGANTIC engagement ring, offset with Margiela-style stacks from the Kardashian Kollection, yellow gold bands and a delicate gold hand chain. I would have liked to have asked her about every single piece, but alas, with only a kouple of minutes on the klock, I had to choose my questions karefully...
Knatalie: You have an enviable wardrobe. What's your most treasured piece?
Khloé: I am a shoe whore! I love all shoes, but my mom has vintage Alaia dresses from the '80s that she still has and gave me two of them, and I just love them. I think they're so beautiful. They're sentimental because my dad bought them for her. I don't even think I've worn them, they're just sentimental pieces and they're vintage and so chic and timeless. But shoes I could go on for days, I can't pick from my shoes!
Knatalie: I have to ask, what was it like working with Terry Richardson?
Khloé: He's major. His set energy is really fun and he plays loud crazy music. It was a dream. Kim's worked with him once before; for Kourtney and I it was our first time. He is so sweet and humble and just really mellow and laid back. Sometimes you'd think people would be more standoffish but he was almost thanking me and I'm like, 'Oh no, no, you're a photographer God, thank you!' I think the photos turned out phenomenally.
I'll leave you with my favourite dress of the kollection, a faux leather shift in white and black, as modelled by Kourtney and Khloé respectively... If you need me, I'll be wearing the white one while watching E!...
