Kim Kardashian tries out what looks like a wedding dress, but is marriage to Kanye West in the cards?

Kardashian, 31, isn’t officially divorced from Kris Humphries yet, but her new look from high-end fashion designer Emilio Pucci is sure to fan the flames of speculation.

If wedding bells are ringing again for Kim Kardashian, she’s already got at least one dress.

The 31-year-old reality star, who wore three gowns when she wed NBA player Kris Humphries last year, struck a pose in another floor-length, white number on Tuesday night.

Kardashian shared the Instagram snap with her nearly 16 million Twitter followers, prompting rumors she’s ready to tie the knot with beau Kanye West.

The buxom brunette captioned the photo, “Late night fitting #pucci,” presumably a nod to high-end fashion designer Emilio Pucci.

“I hope that’s a wedding dress,” a fan commented on Instagram.

Others worried the backless, embroidered gown wasn’t appropriate to wear down the aisle.

“Please don’t say that’s a wedding dress,” another Instagram user wrote. “And yes, if you were my best girlfriend, I’d say the same.”

Kardashian’s camp hasn’t commented on the prospect of marriage with West.

Despite her relationship with the rapper, Kardashian’s divorce from Humphries, to whom she was famously married to for just 72 days, is not yet finalized.

Humphries, 27, is pushing for an annulment of the marriage on the basis Kardashian never intended the relationship to last, and only had her sights set on money and fame.

A hearing is set for Nov. 28.

Miranda Kerr Bares All in ‘Harper’s Bazaar’

TERRY RICHARDSON FOR HARPER’S BAZAAR

They say the right shoes can make an outfit, and apparently, Miranda Kerr is taking that saying veryliterally.

The supermodel poses in thigh-high boots — and absolutely nothing else — in the new issue ofHarper’s Bazaar, in which she discusses her to-die-for street style.

“For me it’s all about keeping things simple and feeling comfortable in what I am wearing,” Kerr tells the magazine. “I prefer investing in classic, well-tailored pieces.”

For fashion inspiration, the mom looks to a fashion icon — and a special family member. “I have always admired Audrey Hepburn’s style and my Nan has always been a style icon for me,” she admits. “Growing up I would play in her wardrobe and was very influenced by her. She taught me that you don’t need to have a lot of money to have style. It’s the way you put things together and how you carry yourself.”

And since the model is posing in just boots, naturally she’s a fan of them. “I really love over-the-knee boots. I think they’re super sexy and they’re fun,” she says in a behind-the-scenes video. “And they’re also very strong and empowering.” We’d have to agree.

To see more shots of Kerr, pick up the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar, on newsstands Aug. 21. Tell us: What do you think of Kerr’s nearly nude shoot?

Retail’s next dimension demands attention

By Georgina Safe

A shopper models 3D glasses to look at a 3D display in a shopwindow at the Sportsgirl womens' fashion store in Sydney's CBD

Fashion’s new frontier … one of the new 3D displays at Sportsgirl designed to attract more consumers to visit the stores rather than purchase their goods online

WITH 3D glasses to view window displays and interactive mirrors in changerooms, stores are hoping they can head off the drift to shopping online.

Sportsgirl is taking a futuristic approach to its fashion boutiques with 3D window displays around the country featuring collages created by the British artist Mat Maitland.

Customers can use 3D glasses available in store to view the eye-popping graphics by Maitland, who has produced artwork and campaigns for the likes of Beck, Goldfrapp and Michael Jackson.

”In a challenging retail environment, we are communicating with customers on the go while at the same time delivering a fun and interactive experience,” Sportsgirl’s chief executive, Elle Roseby, said.

The windows follow Sportsgirl’s launch of an interactive mirror that enables a customer to share her experience in the fitting room with her peers online via Twitter and Facebook. People can take a photograph of themselves in their potential new outfit using a reflective digital mirror in the changeroom, then use the mirror’s touchscreen to share the photograph on their own Facebook or Twitter page for feedback from their friends.

”Our bricks and mortar stores remain as important to us as our digital strategy,” she said. ”It is crucial for us to create as much integration between the two … providing our customer with the ability to interact with friends online whilst in our stores.”

Knitting classes, fine dining restaurants and free styling sessions are among the initiatives on offer in other shops aimed at offering unique experiences that are not available on the internet.

This year, the Corner Shop held free knitting classes at its boutique in the Strand Arcade that were sponsored by the Knitters’ Guild of NSW.

Across Pitt Street Mall in Westfield Sydney, Cara&Co boutique has a Flemish restaurant with a menu created by the Michelin-star Belgian chef Dave De Belder.

The restaurant is designed to dovetail with the experiential ”five senses” approach to bricks and mortar retail of Cara&Co, owner Rosa Alpert said.

First pictures of Emma Watson as a burlesque dancer in The Perks of Being a Wallflower

These are the first pictures of Emma Watson playing a burlesque dancer in her latest film, The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Miss Watson, 22, plays the subject of an adolescent boy’s affections in a film adaption of the coming-of-age novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

A trailer of the film, released last night, shows the former Harry Potter series actor dancing in lingerie during a burlesque show to a song from the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

“I was very nervous to that stuff,” Miss Watson told a cable television channel at the MTV Movie Awards yesterday. “It was tough.”

“I think Harry Potter fans will love it because it has so much heart, like the Harry Potter stories do,” she added. “I feel like it’s the perfect transition from Harry Potter to kind of a more adolescent movie. It’s a little bit of an older tone. It’s darker.”

Stephen Chbosky’s book is among those that have prompted most complaints to the American Library Association, for its treatment of drugs, homosexuality, nudity and offensive language.

Miss Universe Pageant Allows Transgender Women to Compete

by 

Now here’s a true flash of beauty.

Transgender women have notched a key victory in a bid for equality, as the Miss Universe Organization announced today that they will be allowed to compete in its pageants.

The move follows a bitter controversy that erupted after transgender Miss Universe Canada hopeful Jenna Talackova was disqualified from competing in her country’s pageant for not being a natural-born female.

In a joint statement, GLAAD and the Miss Universe Organization, which is owned by Donald Trump, said that they are “pleased to announce that after more than two weeks of discussions, the Miss Universe Organization is close to finalizing an official policy change that will allow women who are transgender to participate in its beauty competitions.”

GLAAD has aggressively engaged in a dialogue with the organization following the uproar over Talackova’s disqualification, and spokesperson Herndon Graddick explained, “For more than two weeks, the Miss Universe Organization and Mr. Trump made it clear to GLAAD that they were open to making a policy change to include women who are transgender…We appreciate that he and his team responded swiftly and appropriately.”

The Miss Universe Organization claims that its decision to open the pageant to transgender contestants is in line with its push to support “equality for all women.”

“We want to give credit where credit is due,” Paula Shugart, president of the Miss Universe Organization, said in the statement. “And the decision to include transgender women in our beauty competitions is a result of our ongoing discussions with GLAAD and not Jenna’s legal representation, which if anything delayed the process. We have a long history of supporting equality for all women, and this was something we took very seriously.”

Per the announcement, the policy change will kick in just in time for the fall 2013 pageant season, when most of the regional competitions start being staged around the world.
