Kim Kardashian Bares All- Naturally!

Kim Kardashian just loves showing up for red carpets and partying in Las Vegas, especially Jet nightclub in The Mirage– that is unless she’s got a better offer to take it all off! 

If you’ve ever wanted to see Kim Kardashian au natural, you’re in for a treat.  She stripped down totally nude for a photo shoot that is in the May 2010 issue of women’s magazine Harper’s Bazaar. 

The photo is untouched, i.e., there’s no airbrushing involved. It seems this is becoming a Hollywood trend. Jessica Simpson recently did it for Marie Claire and Brittney Spears released both an airbrushed and untouched photo of herself for a Candies ad.  But Kardashian trumps them because she was totally nude.  Who knew celebs wanted us to feel better about ourselves and let us know it’s ok to be au natural? 

The jet-setting Kardashian likes taking it off in other ways, too.  Last week the former Playboy model, 29, was spotted making out with Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, 25, in a top restaurant after she watched him play for Spanish team Real Madrid. Then, after dining, she quickly followed Ronaldo to his mansion and discretely disappeared for a few hours. 

But that was last week. Yesterday, shortly after her long and luxurious Beverly Hills mani/pedi, Kardashian headed to LAX and is en route to Australia- as she excitedly tweeted earlier today: “Australia here we come!!!!”  Who knows what new mischief she’ll be getting into…?

Kim Kardashian Stylin’ & Marketing Non-Stop in Las Vegas

Kim Kardashian looked her very buxom best at the launch of her very first fragrance at the Tao nightclub in the Venetian in Las Vegas on Sat., Feb 27. 

Kardashian wore a form-fitting, low-cut beige-and-black number with matching black heels. She paired it up with hair worn down and neutral colors on the face.

While we think it’s an odd choice of colors to wear to an evening event, we’ll let it slide, seeing as she’s usually on the money! Let’s hope her new fragrance is too.

Kardashian showed up at the party escorted by her mother, Kris, and celebrity publicists Simon Huck and Jonathan Chaven. 

It’s been a very busy week for K-ster, who previously tweeted Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek, plugged her fragrance on the sets of QVC shopping channel and met up with beau Reggie Bush at the salon.

Proving she has all the right stuff, she appeared chipper early next morning, Sunday, when she popped out of bed with the chickens to attend the NASCAR opening cermemonies at the Shelby American race in Las Vegas, rooting her namesake’s car on. 

Her touted fragrance, named simply Kim Kardashian, is a provacative, heady mix of tuberose, gardenia, and jasmine and is packaged in a circular black bottle. It is available exclusively at Sephora retail stores and QVC.

Las Vegas red carpets center stage this weekend

Red carpet A-lister celebrity types of events in Las Vegas have largely been on the wane, what with the drastic downturn in the economy and the policy of many venues to have celebrities pay their way. This weekend shows an inkling of an exception to that rule.  

Kim Kardashian promotes her perfume by walking on the red carpet at 10 p.m. Saturday at the Venetian’s club Tao. 

Controversial Lindsay Lohan will pick up her much needed check for strutting her stuff Saturday on the Pure nightclub red carpet in Caesars at 11:30 p.m.  And, if you believe the Sun of London, she’s now free of drugs and alchol, saying, “I tried to mask my problems with alcohol, cocaine and mind-altering substances…Now I’m in a place where I don’t need to use anything.”  This of course begs the question why in the hell would she want to show up clubbing at a venue where strong drinking is the rule.  And if her on-again, off-again flame Samantha Ronson will sneak in, is anybody’s guess. 

Mariah Carey will air out her pipes earlier on Saturday at the Colosseum.  Undoubtedly, she will be seen lurking in the many nook and cranny shadows of Las Vegas later in the evening. 

At 5:30 p.m. on Saturday their will be a red carpet fundraiser at the Bellagio for the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Helath, promising to showcase Danny DeVito, Buzz Aldrin, Brad Garrett, Leeza Gibbons, Wolfgang Puck and Thomas Keller.

 Iyaz sings “Replay” after an 11:30 p.m. red carpet Saturday at the Bellagio club Bank. 

“American Idol” guy Larry Platt appears after midnight tonight at Mirage club Jet.

Ciara gets her carpet call after midnight Saturday at CityCenter club Haze.

 If you enjoy gawking sports stars, Pierre Thomas and Lance Moore of the Super Bowl winning New Orleans Saints will be paid to appear on the red carpet at 11 p.m. this evening at Palazzo’s club Lavo. 

If all this NASCAR weekend and red carpet stuff is just too much for you, please check out the fuzz-guitar weirdo-rock of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club at 9:30 p.m. on Sunday at Wasted Space at the Hard Rock.  Oh, and bring $20 to get in.

Kim Kardashian’s Latest Dashin’ in Las Vegas Exploits

If you haven’t heard the latest scuttlebutt, now OLD Kim Kardashian brought her merry friends and happy-go-lucky dysfunctional family to the Tao nightclub in the Venetian in Las Vegas to celebrate her 29th birthday on October 16.  Yep, she’s a certified oldster now. KimKardashian

Reportedly, the reality-tv star and fashion icon is having some second- and even third thoughts - about turning the big two-nine.    Shhhhh.  Could it be that the pre-thirty angst is more about the Kardashian sisters becoming grown-ups rather than sorrow over losing their terrible twenties?  Oh my.  

Older sis Kourtney is expecting her first child in December.  Younger sis Khloe recently married Las Angeles Laker Lamar Odom.    So what will the future hold for Kim?  Stay tuned to Las Vegas Backstage Access.

Celebrities L-O-V-E Gourmet Lollipops

As a kid, it was always a good day when you went to the doctor, or other onerous visit, and  then when it was over, you received a big sucker to ostensibly ease your pain and reward the visit.  And getting an extra quarter from your parents was always a cool deal, letting you buy a sucker just for more fun. 

Now, those comfy chilhood feelings are being relived as celebrities love heading down the red carpet and hanging out in Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New York nightclubs with gourmet, glamour suckers.  Carmen Electra, Zach Braff, Ice-T, Nick Canon,  Perez Hilton, Mickey Rourke, the hotties from The Hills and pretty much anyone else that’s been on reality television is hooked on the yummy and sticky fad. SugarFactory

For a paltry $32 apiece (there’s no recession, right?), you can snatch up the latest edible and completely customizable clubbing accessory and get your sugar fix at the same time.  First, select one of seven bejeweled handles on the www.SugarFactory.com and select your poison:  green apple, cherry, bubble gum, blue raspberry, creamy orange, pina colada or watermelon.   Three-pack refills are available for $12.     

For those that still can’t satisfy their sweet tooth, there are also $25 signature pops like the Britney Spears Circus Tour pops, Kim Kardashian’s Silver Rainbow or champagne pops or the very Vegas-ey Pussycat Dolls PCD Tour pop.  

The brainchild creator of the tantalizing celebrity gourmet pops is none other than the former Pure Management Group managing partner Steve “Stevie D” Davidovici who is the manager of Sugar Factory, LLC.    The company was formed in August of 2008, just six months after IRS agents raided Pure, LAX and offices of Pure Management Group. 

Davidovici is also in the midst of reportedly purchasing a New York club, as previously reported by Las Vegas Backstage Access in May 14, 2009 article. 

Apparently, Davidovici is getting the last laugh on red carpets of many prestigious U.S. nightclubs. 

What’s next?  Signature pop-designed fillings from the dentist?

Las Vegas’ Quiet Rocking 2009 New Year’s Eve

The first chance for many visitors and Las Vegas locals to party and play the Sin City branded way in newyears200812009 turned out to be, sadly, a little less-than-spectacular.  There were limited Las Vegas A-list midnight performances by Kid Rock, Pink, Fergie, and Akon.  And, as usual, there was a smattering of A-list celebrities playing peek-a-boo in and out of the Las Vegas nightclubs.  The 291,000 visitors to the Strip this year also found themselves popping corks – and more – with Usher, Denise Richards, Kim Kardashian, or Ashley Simpson and hubby Pete Wentz.  But for the most part, 2009, even though it brought more people in than last year’s estimated 284,000, provided partygoers limited sparkle and under restricted circumstance and attendance.  Despite the enticement of rock-bottom room rates and added incentives, the number of Las Vegas visitors this year was down from the 305,000 people attending New Year’s in 2006.  And this year there were 126 people arrested; 47 for driving under the influence.

 

In January 2008 a fire erupted on the roof of the Monte Carlo Hotel in Las Vegas and the ensuing investigation raised concerns about how easily Vegas Strip hotels could become blazing Hollywood backdrops.  So, when the time came for the 2009 News Year’s Eve fireworks blitz to be planned – it had to be staged from the roof of lower, and somewhat safer, parking garages located around the periphery of Las Vegas.   And once safety restrictions were paired with financial reductions, the city view that had once become a regular CNN moment beamed throughout the world didn’t even rate a cell phone video.

 

But not everyone in Las Vegas was participating in a subdued 2009 New Year’s Eve.  Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, surrounded by his usual cache’ of jewel-toned showgirls, celebrated the start of 2009 at the Fremont Street Experience, his favorite haunt.   “We’re the luckiest people in the world,” a beaming, red-nosed Goodman proclaimed to the record crowd of 30,000 in attendance. “I want all of us who live here to be prosperous and happy in 2009.”   And we all know that when Oscar Goodman issues a proclamation, the city and citizens respond with fervor. 

 

Our New Year’s wish is that this slow motion opening is just a simple starting point for what will be a spectacular 2009 for everyone.
