Beyonce 'Barely Spoke To Kim Kardashian' At Festival

Kim Kardashian might be 'desperate' to get to know Beyonce and get into her inner circle, but her plans aren't quite working out as Beyonce seemed to pretty much ignore her on Saturday night.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star attended the Made In America festival in Philadelphia this weekend, as did Beyonce, as the ladies were both there to support their men Jay-Z and Kanye West, but Beyonce “didn't even acknowledge” Kim until the end, according to a new report.

“Kim and Beyonce barely spoke to each other,” a source told Confidenti@l, before adding: “They were on opposite sides of the stage. Beyonce didn’t even acknowledge [Kardashian] was there until the concert was almost over.”

Kanye was one of Jay-Z's special guests during his performance at the festival, and is not only one of the '99 Problems' rapper's best pals, but he's also reportedly Blue Ivy's godfather.

But according to the source, it wasn't just Beyonce who went cold, as they said: “(Kardashian) didn’t make any efforts to go speak to Beyonce either,” the source explained, revealing that the 31-year-old spent a lot of time with her buddy Jonathan Cheban and Kanye.

Kim was allegedly 'uncomfortable” when the pair “made small talk in the dressing room, but you could tell Kim was uncomfortable. She clung onto Kanye the entire time and didn't say much,” the source revealed.

They also added: “(Kardashian) was talking to Jonathan, and Kanye was talking to Jay-Z and Beyonce.”

Kim did praise Jay-Z for his set, but it sounds as if he had food on his mind.

There's been rumours of the girl's tense friendship for awhile now with B reportedly slamming Kim for trying to "buy her friendship" after the reality star gave Beyonce's daughter an expensive bracelet back in July.

The insider has revealed that Beyonce called on chef Anthony DiRienzo from STARR Restaurants (Buddakkan, Morimoto) to prepare her meals, which allegedly included a chicken quesadilla with no cheese and watermelon tomato salad.

They loved the nosh so much that they ordered some take-away meals for their private jet on Sunday.

Vogue Café and GQ Bar to open in Dubai Mall

Dubai Mall is preparing to welcome the Vogue café and a GQ bar, both titles belonging to Condé Nast.

Diversification is the name of the game over at Condé Nast. The international publishing house responsible for Vogue , Vanity Fair , Glamour and GQ already has designs on a fashion college , and is now set to conquer the Middle East with a Vogue café and GQ bar.

A new Vogue Café (there is already one in Russia) is slated to launch in Dubai by the end of the year, but this being glossy fashion bible Vogue , it will be housed inside the world's largest shoe store.
Level Shoe District, a 96,000 sq ft luxury retail space, will stock more than 250 shoe brands and is situated in Dubai Mall at the foot of the world's tallest skyscraper - the 828 metre-high Burj Khalifa.

"The expatriate community and the local Emirati community are very conscious of brands," said Stuart Nielsen, director of Conde Nast's restaurant division, which was launched in 2010. "People always love to eat and drink, and we see an opportunity because they love fashion."

The Vogue Café will not serve alcohol, but a hotel-based bar inspired by its men's title, GQ , is being plotted for launch in Dubai early next year, would.

The company is planning to open another GQ Bar in Istanbul this year, and has signed deals for Condé Nast establishments in Bangkok and Singapore, Nielsen said. It is also considering opening cafés in Mideast cities closer to Dubai, including Kuwait City and the Emirati capital, Abu Dhabi.

Kim Kardashian To Take Back Seat In Reality TV Show?

Kim Kardashian is allegedly 'embarrassed' by her high-profile family life.

According to Heat magazine, the 31-year old is having second thoughts regarding how much of her life is featured on TV show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

The publication claims Kimmy may feature less on the show in the future, especially now her romance with rapper Kanye West is going from strength-to-strength.

A source revealed: "Kim has secretly been getting embarrassed about how much her family share and there's no way Kanye would allow the intimate moments of their relationship to be filmed.

"He is happy to be in the background, but he thinks some things should be kept private."

The insider went on to state that Yeezy would rather market himself and Kim as a couple, instead of being heavily associated with her mother Kris Jenner and the rest of the Kardashian clan.

"Kanye is thinking of their brand as a duo now, rather than her family's. He thinks some of what she's put her name to is tacky and has already advised her to say no to certain things."

Yeezy's plans are said to have angered Kardashian's mum Kris - who is also the socialite's manager - with the mole adding: "The whole empire is based around Kim and it is her celebrity status that drives the brand.

"For her to turn her back on it would not only be a devastating blow to the family, but most of all to her mum, Kris, too."

Earlier this week, it was also claimed that West has set aside $1million to celebrate Kim's 32nd birthday - with gifts including a private holiday to Pine Clay, a private island in the Turks and Caicos groups.

Kate Moss and George Michael take their friendship to the cover of Vogue Paris

Neighbours, friends, and now cover stars. Kate Moss and BFF George Michael land the October 2012 cover of Vogue Paris.

George and Kate, sitting in a tree, K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Well, probably not the last bit, but the celebrity pair - who are also neighbours in London's chi-chi Highgate Village, really do seem to be the best of friends at the moment.

After Moss moaned that being left out of Michael's Freedom 90 supermodel video was her greatest career regret, Michael promptly made amends by giving Croydon's finest a starring role in his latest single 'White Light' in which she flips a coin to decide the singer's fate.

George later told Magic FM that he chose Kate because she reminds him of his late mum, who the singer was extremely close to. "Every boy who has lost their mum thinks his mum was the most beautiful woman in the world. Why not ask someone who is considered the most beautiful woman in the world in many ways to be that figure?" Welling up here already…

Now the pair have had their love-in committed to fashion history thanks to a Vogue Paris cover and spread shot by renowned photographer, Mario Testino.

We haven't had a peek between the sheets yet, and the cover line 'The pop star falls for the top model, by Mario Testino' doesn't give much away, but this much we do know: A bronzed and bearded George looks in fine fettle after his brush with death last year, and is busting an altogether much more acceptable outfit than the world of leather festival he showed up in at the Olympics Closing Ceremony, while Moss still scrubs up well for the camera (though we would LOVE to get a glimpse of the re-touching bill).

London Fashion Week: Tom Ford spring/summer 2013

Chastity and perversity are the twin themes of Tom Ford's spring/summer 2013 collection.

Tom Ford's style certainly polarises opinion these days, between those who find it backward looking and those who regard it as classic. The vote splits as soon as you're ushered through Ford HQ in Victoria and into the lifts by the same breed of chisel-jawed, side parted, uncannily smooth haired flunkies as the ones who used to line the route to the Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent shows a decade ago. All of them, it turns out, hired for the day from a model agency.

Some like the intimacy and the wink to the past (or maybe it's more of a mugging). Others, not so much. "A good journalist friend told me to quit talking at these things," Ford confessed, as he tapped away on his iPad, cueing up the models and controlling the soundtrack.

Naturally being Ford, it wasn't an entirely wordless affair, which is a good thing. The banter is what personalises these presentations. Two words in particular couldn't be dispensed with. "Chastity and perversity," he explained, were the twin themes of this collection.

Chastity came in the guise of camel cashmere sweaters, taupe skirts and long high necked black paper taffeta column dresses; perversity showed up in the form of black patent zip pencil skirts, caped backs, and the multi buckled leather strap, bondage sandal-boots.

There were plenty of what have become classic Ford tropes: backless black fitted chiffon dresses with cupped breasts (very 50 Shades of Grey ) and long, slashed, beaded skirts and skinny pants, updated this time thanks to an injection of sportiness.

Karl Lagerfeld offers his view on ‘sexy’ Carole Middleton

While Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld is no great fan of Pippa Middleton, he thinks her mother is 'very sexy'.

While we all know what Karl Lagerfeld makes of the Duchess of Cambridge's sister Pippa Middleton - he famously remarked that she "should show only her back" - he has much admiration for her 57-year-old mother Carole.

"I think Carole is very sexy" he told Grazia. "I think the mother is sexier than the daughters. There is something full of life about her. For a woman who must be 50 or so, I think she's great. She's full of energy."

Not so full of praise: Pippa Middleton. Photo: Getty

The spotlight was on mother of the bride Carole at last year's royal wedding, where she looked elegant amid the royal guests in a powder blue creation by Catherine Walker and especially trim thanks to a rumoured stint on the high-protein Dukan diet.

Duchess Kate and Carole are even known to share clothes, with Kate recently borrowing a royal blue dress by Reiss from her mother's wardrobe for a public outing.
"I Love Kate Middleton" added Lagerfeld. "Kate can try anything. For make-up, she has no limits."

The multi-tasking designer also tried to explain the venomous comments he made towards 28-year-old Pippa. "I only meant I don't think her make-up is right," he said, adding: "she has a roundish face and round eyes and should pick another make-up for the eyes." However he did conclude with: "Her sister's more beautiful."

Benetton launch ‘Unemployee of the Year’ campaign

Putting the spotlight on the jobless youth, fashion retailer Benetton is inviting unemployed people aged 18-30 to submit creative projects to help aid the situation.

One could never accuse fashion retailer Benetton of being predictable (remember those ads showing world leaders kissing each other - including Pope Benedict in embrace with an Iman?) and its newest campaign is a fine case in point.

The brand's chairman, Alessandro Benetton, is so concerned with youth unemployment (estimated to be at 100 million globally) that he has launched an online contest to sustain 100 creative projects submitted by those aged 18 to 30 years old who are out of work. The projects must lead to concrete social impact in the participants' community and will be submitted to the UN HATE Foundation website and selected by the online community.
The Foundation, whose aim is to "promote a culture of non-hate" and "support youth to become actors of change against indifference and stigma" will award those chosen with €5,000 euros.

Benetton explained how the campaign "presents a realistic portrait of today's society by actively tackling a current problem, that of youth non-employment and the potential conflict between generations, in order to show it in a new light and create value for the immense human capital of young people."
An accompanying global print and video campaign shows determined young people in situation striving to find work and also includes posters and T-shirts.
