Estee Lauder's New Re-Nutriv Intensive Lifting Lotion

While talking about Estee Lauder, I thought I'd mention the company's recently launched, new Re-Nutriv Intensive Lifting Lotion.

ShoeDazzle with Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush Photo Shoot in GQ Magazine

Kim Kardashian, perhaps best known for her social life, sex tape scandal, and her role on the E! reality show "Keeping Up with the Kardashian's," and boyfriend Reggie Bush are featured together with a photo shoot in the latest issue of GQ Magazine which is out on stands now. Here's one photo of Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush from the first ever photo shoot of the pair together.

Kim Kardashian | Reggie Bush | Photo | Photoshoot | GQ Magazine

When talking about the GQ Magazine photo shoot in the Kim Kardashian website, according to Kim herself,

We were super excited for this shoot but also a bit nervous. We had never done a shoot together and didn't know what to expect!

It turned out super hot and we love it. The article also gives a glimpse into our relationship.

It also covers how we met, the things we argue about, and how we just work so well together!

We did the shoot at an amazing mansion in Los Angeles.

I also see from the Kim Kardashian website that Kim has been nominated for a Bravo A-List Award in the category of Television Reality's Guiltiest Pleasure!!

Now I will leave it to the celeb news and gossip sites to talk more about her latest nomination and the Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush GQ Magazine photo shoot but thought it would be a good time to review another Kim Kardashian project, the shoe club know as Shoe Dazzle at ShoeDazzle.com.

Kim Kardashian's ShoeDazzle Shoe Club

You might recall that ShoeDazzle was launched in November 2008 by Kim Kardashian in partnership with high-profile attorney Robert Shapiro. ShoeDazzle draws from Kim Kardashian’s years as a celebrity stylist. Essentially it's a shoe club. You pay $39 per month (which includes tax and shipping) for membership in this online show club and you get one pair of shoes per month sent out to you to wear!

ShoeDazzle | Kim Kardashian | Fashion | Designer | Womens | Shoe | Club

To join ShoeDazzle you simply take a fashion survey and register. Then based on your survey results, the ShoeDazzle stylists provide you with a choice of 5 fashionable shoes each month, from which you choose one that you like best. You can also arrange to have more than one pair of shoes in any given month. So the $39 per month covers one pair of shoes in that month, the shipping and the ShoeDazzle stylists' efforts in choosing shoes for you.

ShoeDazzle | Kim Kardashian | Fashion | Designer | Womens | Shoe | Club

Now if you don't like any of the shoes that the stylists pick for you, you simply call the customer service team and they will have their stylists send you new styles for you to choose from. In the event that you are unhappy with your shoes for any reason, you can exchange them for another pair or simply return them using the pre-printed return shipping label provided with your order and get a refund. Additionally, as not every woman wants a new pair of shoes every month, you can skip any month and you won't be charged for that month. You can also cancel your membership anytime without any cancellation fee.

Women's Shoes at ShoeDazzle

ShoeDazzle draws from Kim Kardashian's years as a celebrity stylist. The shoes provided are by Michael Antonio and other stylish, high quality shoe designers. On their website ShoeDazzle.com say that they choose shoes with great quality, high fashion, value and comfort.

ShoeDazzle | Kim Kardashian | Fashion | Designer | Womens | Shoe | Club

Perhaps you've checked out Michael Antonio shoes before. From what I know, Michael Antonio shoes are not that expensive. In fact only last weekend Michael Antonio had a blowout sale in Montclair California where you could have bought 1 pair of shoes for $20, 2 pairs for $30, 3 pairs for $40, 6 pairs for $60 and 12 pairs for $100!!!

A Kim Kardashian fan maybe but are you a ShoeDazzle Fan?

Now I don't know about you but when it comes to shoes I’m very fussy and need to try them on. As well as seeing how they look I need to check out the fit. I also have some difficulty in choosing from all the shoes in the one entire store let alone from a range of just 5 shoes.

However, if you're a Kim Kardashian fan you may have already joined ShoeDazzle and let her and her shoe fashion stylists handpick some shoes for you. If so I'd love to hear from you. Were you happy with the ShoeDazzle stylists' choices? What about the ShoeDazzle service itself? Is the $39 per month good value for money? Are you happy with the style and quality of the shoes?

Now if you haven't as yet tried out the ShoeDazzle service, is this something for you? Perhaps you have a problem choosing your own shoe style and could do with your personal shoe stylist. If so then maybe having none other than the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” starlet, Kim Kardashian and her fashion experts handpick your next shoe fantasy might work well for you.

Well if nothing else then the latest issue of GQ Magazine featuring the photo shoot of Kim Kardashian and her boyfriend Reggie Bush might be be your fancy.

Google v. Louis Vuitton Malletier. C- 236/08

Google in Court | LVMH | Louis Vuitton | French Luxury | Fashion | Designer | Clothes | Shoes  | Handbags | Jewelry

In a case of High Tech vs. High Fashion, BBC News reports that LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy), the French group behind the highly regarded fashion, shoes, handbags and jewelry company Louis Vuitton, has taken Internet giant Google to Court over its use of trademarks.

In the European Union’s highest court, the European Court of Justice (ECJ), LVMH has argued that Google is selling search words such as its trademarked "vuitton" to the highest bidder and that because of this, web users searching for its products will see on the right hand side of the screen under the heading "sponsored links" the names and adverts for rivals or firms selling counterfeit or replica goods. It is well known that LV has become one of the most counterfeited contemporary luxury fashion brands.

This is not the first time that LVMH has taken legal action to protect its trademarks online. In June last year, a French court ordered auction site eBay to pay 38.6m euros to LVMH for allowing online auctions of fake copies of its handbags and perfumes, under brands including Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and Givenchy. In June 2006 the Paris Court of Appeals affirmed a lower court ruling that Google infringed on Louis Vuitton's trademark by unfairly selling search-related keyword advertising to its competitors, including counterfeiters, via AdWords.

Google has also been in court over other trademark infringements. Back in 2005 Google lost an appeal against a court ruling over trademark infringement brought about by Luteciel and Viaticum, two French travel companies. A lawsuit was filed after Google users searching for the two French companies found themselves directed instead to rival sponsored links. Similarly, in 2005 a French court ordered Google to refrain from using the trademarks of European resort chain Le Meridien Hotels and Resorts to trigger keyword ads.
