She’s been slowly turning around her style in the last few years, still glam but with a grown-up edge – and we’ve been watching closely, very, very closely.
Here’s the thing about Kourtney Kardashian – she’s probably the one we know the least about out of the lot of them. Kim Kardashian West, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner’s outfits seem to generate hundreds of pieces of coverage, taking over fashion and beauty campaigns and brand partnerships pretty much globally. But why doesn’t Kourtney’s style get the same attention? Right now, we think she could well be the best dressed Kardashian sister.
She’s moved away from the OTT Kardashian in-your-face pieces (less leopard print and flashy Birkins) and experimented, mashing up the figure-hugging tube dresses and leather tops with oversized palazzo pants, sweeping robe coats and tailored jumpsuits. When she does sexy, it whispers demure. She’s also wearing more vintage than ever before – a past-season Vivienne Westwood corset here and old Céline coat there.
She seems to have a knack for elevating the signature Kardashian aesthetic – dressing up distressed jeans, making cycling shorts work for the evening (team them with an Acler peplum jacket, high-heel mules and a mini Vuitton, obviously) and looking insanely chic every time. Damn girl.
It turns out Kourt’s new style credentials might be thanks to a new stylist. The Kardashian clan moved away from working with(Kim alluded to a falling out – we never got a confirmation of the full story) back in 2017 and the sisters each have their own personal stylists since. Kourtney has been working with Dani Michelle who is noted for bringing an edgier look to her clients.
Michellle said in an interview: “When we started working together, my goal was to bring all of the brands I loved into [Kourtney’s] life so she could express everything she wanted to through fashion.” She added, “I knew she had the confidence, personality, and body to pull off strong looks, and it was so exciting to watch her bring these moments to life.”
Michelle and Kourtney often turn to Instagram to get some inspiration. “We go really deep, starting from one tag then on to one similar, then to the next website to the next link, et cetera,” she says. “We go deep into Instagram accounts, as sometimes it’s the most expansive way to see all that’s happening, and the voice of fashion from a worldwide perspective.”
Turns Out, Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Famous Emmys Afterparty Photo Was Just a Glorious Accident
Phoebe Waller-Bridge appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Thursday night and, I’ve got to say, this was one of the loveliest interviews (it was actually more of a conversation) I’ve watched in a long time. They covered a lot of ground in the 20-minute interview. They spoke about how Phoebe and her hugely popular show Fleabag were responsible for “making priests hot” and how her Fleabag Live show (which is now available to stream online, for charity) is a “darker, more racy” version of the TV show.
But what really tickled me was when Phoebe explained how she and her sister are surviving lockdown together, with a couple of fruit safe words (yes, fruit), and when she explained the story behind her famous photo, taken at the 2019 Emmys afterparty. You know the one: in the photo, she’s perched on a very OTT chair at the Chateau Marmont, with a cigarette in one hand and a gimlet cocktail in the other, and she’s surrounded by the golden trophies she’d won at the awards ceremony earlier that night.
Phoebe explained that there actually wasn’t much to the photo, which she admits was a fluke but turned out pretty well. She said, “I was just with a bunch of six friends out the back, and one of them [BBC Head of Comedy Josh Cole] took that photo and put it on his Instagram – and then it went mad!” So, that’s that team. It was just a glorious accident that instantly became an iconic moment for us all. You can watch the full interview above.
