Kim Kardashian opens up to Glamour Magazine about her body image – and more!

Kim Kardashian is Feburary’s cover girl for Glamour Magazine, and inside Katie Kouric interviews Kim on body issues – and what it’s like to be a sex symbol.

Katie Couric: Because a lot of young women read this magazine, I wanted to ask you about issues you’ve had with your body in the past and growing up and being bullied. You developed early, is that true?

Kim Kardashian: Kourtney probably bullied me the most because she hadn’t developed. She was always making fun of me. I mean, when I was 11 I was a C-cup and I got my period. I was just insecure.

Katie Couric: But how did you sort of come to love, accept and appreciate the body you had?

Kim Kardashian: I remember I would sit in the bathtub, and I would put a hot washcloth on my boobs and think, Please, Lord, just please, I don’t want to grow any bigger. I would cry. My mom would say, “You are going to love this one day.” And she was like, “You’re Armenian. Look at all your aunts. They’re super curvy, and this is your family. This is who you are.” We were raised around all of our Armenian cousins, and I know a lot about the culture. So I think that made me confident in who I am.

Katie Couric: How do you feel about being a sex symbol? Is it empowering or degrading?

Kim Kardashian: It’s definitely powerful. I don’t find myself as sexy as everyone thinks. I’m a lot more insecure than people would assume, but with little stupid things. When I get dressed, I’m always so indecisive.

After 15 years in the shoe business, Jimmy Choo launches its first fragrance!

According to Stylist, the Jimmy Choo is launching their first fragrance, to be sold exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue starting January 15th.

The fragrance will be called Jimmy Choo.

“We’ve transitioned into a lifestyle luxury brand, and it seemed like the next natural step for us,” Tamara Mellon, co-founder and chief creative officer of Jimmy Choo, told WWD at a London event to launch the fragrance. “Fragrance is such an important accessory for women — I think it will have a very broad reach. Our customer is every woman.”

The juice, three years in the making, was created by Olivier Polge of International Flavors & Fragrances, and it’s a fruity chypre with green top notes, as well as exotic tiger orchid, sweet toffee and Indonesian patchouli notes.

“You have to — fragrance is something that’s very… personal,” said Mellon, to a room full of beauty editors at the New York launch event, where she revealed that her favorites as a teenager included Opium and Anaïs Anaïs. “I love the smell of green fresh notes, they’re in the top notes of our fragrance. I like things that are sensual, so that’s how we came in with the patchouli.”

“We wanted to create something that was an object of desire, that you would be proud to have on show,” said Mellon of the Murano-glass-inspired perfume bottle. She has a history of using the Italian material for chandeliers in some of the first Jimmy Choo stores.

New Year New Hairstyle?

In Style presents the perfect cut for every face. Start off your New Year with a fresh look.

We’ve got the best short, medium and long looks for everyone!

How to Determine Your Shape
Break out a ruler and measure the widths of your brow, cheekbones and jawline, and the length of your face from forehead to chin.

Round (like Ginnifer Goodwin): Your forehead and jaw are curved at the corners, and your face is nearly as wide as it is long.

Heart (like Reese Witherspoon): You fall into this category if you’re wide at the brow but especially narrow at the jaw.

Long/Oval (Like Zoe Saldana): The widths of your brow, cheekbones and jaw are almost equal.

Square (like Salma Hayek Pinault): If the length of your face is almost equal to its width, you’re a square shape.
