    I like her comment about wanting more powder, but I would have preferred it in the fragrance (ah LUV powdah! )

    Nutters. She got her 15 minutes of fame detained and she's still a single faceless unknown who should have her fur 'locks' shaved Sinead style. Makes me glad I'm on this side of the internet!!!

    i am not a fan of Kardashian but kudos to her for not pressing charges against the attacker...she kept her cool so i would give her credit for that even though i dont really admire her

    I disagree with this type of 'protest', but having said that I support Kim Kardashian even less for wearing real fur.

    I agree - pressing charges would have been a bad move. Even if she had momentary thoughts of doing so, I'm sure that her manager would have nixed the idea immediately. Celebrity has to be careful, but "instant celebrity" even more so.

    Her best move now is to secretly switch to faux fur. Then, the next time she gets flour-bombed, she can have a public sympathy-fest and watch her ratings go up double-digit!

    I do find these sorts of protests annoying, even when I support the cause. At least flour isn't as destructive as red paint. The thing I love about glitter-bombing is that the "victim" can almost regale in it as a form of confetti - which many do. It ends up coming off as a form of unwanted affection, rather than demeaning the person - and I think that makes the point very effectively. It's something of an invitation - but not a requirement - to "be nice back". Still, the invasiveness of such protests bothers me in a very fundamental way.

    I haven't been following the "flour-bombing" thing, but I would expect that it would generate far fewer negatives than paint-bombing, which tends to make people sympathetic with the victims. We'll undoubtedly see more of it.

    Also think she did the best thing by not pressing charges.

    I just read that KK is re thinking pressing charges . I don't know if that's a good idea though.

    I don't support wearing fur but IMHO I think anything like flour bombing , throwing pie , paint at a public figure, is a form of assault.
    Anyway , Anna Wintour always deals with it with grace and dignity.

    Kim Kardashain has branded her flour bomb attacker a 'bully' and is threatening to press charges after initially laughing off her embarrassing misfortune.

    Having seen the conditions on fur farms etc I do understand the need to protest the issue, and I think it reflects very badly on Kim Kardashian that she continues to wear real fur, despite the matter being brought to her attention many times (by her sister among other people). I do think invasive protests such as this one don't achieve much other than annoying people.

    I'm not sure how I feel about fur wearing but I know that one has a right to do so without being assaulted.

    Also what irks me about these protestors is that they're spending their energy on animal fur when there are people dying in Africa out of disease and famine.

    I think human lives should come first on one's agenda.

    Hedonist, I know where you are coming from because I undersand the Middle Eastern perspective, coming from a similar culture like yours and used to believe the same. but i think human lives are important but that doesnt make animal lives any less important...humans often turn out to be worse than animals ..i may be being hypocratic saying this since i eat meat but i still dont have the courage to personally witness a killing of any animal (even if for food purpose), let alone for as stupid reasons as fur..btw, animals cant protest so being weak, sometimes they require greater voice and support from us..

    I would say that it's possible to oppose animal cruelty whilst still supporting human-based charity as well. Generally people who care for animals I think also care for humans too. Slightly off-topic, but many people who give up meat for instance do so upon realising the wastefulness of the meat industry (it's partly that wastefulness that leads to people starving in Africa). My point is, caring for animals doesn't usually mean a lack of caring for humans. Also, there are a fair few people out there who don't really care about either, so.....

    EDIT: just to be clear, I am not supporting this kind of protest at all, but I do believe it is something that does need to be peacefully protested to raise awareness etc...difficult to imagine a peaceful world in which some of us still wear a completely unnecessary fashion accessory produced under horrific conditions....

    Perhaps Kim Kardashian should share some of her meals with others; she's looking a little wide.

    LOL!

    I don't think that it was intended, but the flour did a real job on her "optical illusion" pantsuit. Makes me wonder if the nasty butt-shot was what made her re-think charges. Although "re-thinking" is probably a good strategy to keep this from becoming a regular occurrence.

    In any event, fur doesn't help "wide".

    Ditch the corpse-wear, Kim! Faux fur is yo' fur!

    She certainly is, but not sure that's a good reason to form any kind of opinion (or lack of one!) on her fur-wearing...e.g. if she was not beautiful would that change your opinion?

    I really do not care what she wears. I have never been interested in the fur debate. I think there are far far worse things happening in the world. I do not agree with animal cruelty, but I do not see how attacking her will even change anything at all. Just a silly public stunt that had no real value and will not change anything in society.
    We can debate back and forth on the morals of fur all day long, will not change a thing. Where money is to be made, then whatever items are in demand will be sold. Human greed.
    Look at the weapons industry in America etc. They make weapons to murder other humans. Big big business. Trillions to be made each year in that sector. We just live in a totally screwed up world.

    I agree that she's beautiful! Actually, I find Khloe even more attractive. But I have to admit that the whole reality star thing is just incredibly ridiculous, and I feel like a complete sucker. WHY on earth am I interested in these people? LOL.

    I mean, when there is news about fake news about rumors about an idea as scandalous as divorcing on a reality show to boost ratings and maybe the rumor isn't true but what if it is and - wait a second. These people are just the hot daughters of a famous lawyer who died. Or am I missing something?

    Well, you get the picture. Oy vey! But - well - don't change the channel just yet......

    Those are the words of someone who has lost faith in humanity (as opposed to inhumanity). I do not think Kim Kardashian is a 'bad' person. I think if she stopped wearing fur it would reflect well on her and it would do a lot of good to the anti-fur movement too. As for there being "far, far worse" things happening in the world, I think there are few things more horrifying than a sentient creature being skinned alive (which happens to many animals on fur farms).

    I still have faith in the kindness of many people, and I think you should too. You could at least have faith in your own.

    ...We don't all have to be Martin Luther King (luckily!), but it can't hurt just to care.

    Yeah I agree, I really do not wish to get drawn into a big debate that often just leads to nowhere.

    Yes, I have lost lots of faith in humanity. Yes, I think an animal being skinned alive is just horrific and really really do hope that it could be stopped. I will just leave my opinions at that. It is up to these " celebrities " to decide what they wear.

    Kim is by far the hottest sister, obviously very subjective. She is just beautiful. Though I bet she is major high maintenance. Anytime she comes on TV I can not help but freeze like a deer in headlights at her. I do not care for her as a celebrity, I just happen to find her gorgeous.

    Okay, then we're basically agreed and I'm happy to leave it there too. Just don't under value the influence of the 'average joe', there's still a lot of good people in this "messed up world", including yourself I'm sure!

    We can both agree she's very attractive, and I would consider her even more so if she swapped her real fur for the faux variety!

    Love to know. I thought it was a bit daring to name it "True Reflection", inviting comparison with the Amouage Reflection scents. Not just that - in most cases, nowadays, people would likely run from a name similarity like that. In this case, however, I would think that the controversy would actually be considered a reality show plus. Bottom line, still - how does it smell?

    I liked the first KK fragrance - or at least I thought it was decent, particularly for a celebuscent. I think Primrose has smelled that one, too. The Khloe & Lamar scent has one deep-down similarity to the new Soul2Soul (Faith & Tim) scents as well - a sort of buttery citrus fougere thing that I love. That one is big and bold in the men's Soul2Soul, but there's just a touch in Unbreakable.
