FASHION NEWS NOW: The Kardashians make a mad “DASH” for Miami, Emma Watson sports a denim jumpsuit for the cover of ELLE, and LVMH announces the 12 finalists competing for the new LVMH Prize for Young Designers!

Despite some recent and disturbing news concerning, “robbers, and jewelry, and Kanye, oh my,” the ever so lovely Kardashian sisters made their way to Miami on Wednesday for the opening of their latest DASH store. Like always, the girls did their best to keep all eyes on them. Khloe went for the more sophisticated look, dressed in a long black dress which featured a “deep-v” plunging neckline and heels by Christian Louboutin.

Kim Kardashian: Style Star We Love

As owner and curator of three Dash boutiques (...we hear there’s possibly a fourth in the works for Dallas) alongside her two sisters, having designed a capsule collection for Bebe, the Kardashian Kollection for Sears, as well as a full jewelry collection Belle Noel available at shopbop.com and other retailers, it’s safe to say this girl knows a thing or two about fashion.

Possible Kim And Kanye Collaboration

Kim Kardashian has reportedly been working in the studio with producer The Dream, with a lot of additional time spent with Kanye West. Thoughts are that the two are planning a collaboration, and so far all we know is that Kim would be a honored to collaborate with him!

Seems the Kardashians also see more in Kanye than just his musical masterpieces. By blessing their New York Dash store, Kanye became somewhat of a fashion muse to the television personalities.

Whatever the case may be, Kim's still single right? So is this a collaboration or her next chance at love?

INDUSTRY NEWS
Dash in NYC

As much as we wish they would go away, it seems as though the Kardashians will keep creeping into our lives in the most inconvenient ways.

Kourtney Kardashian was recently spotted in New York City shopping around potential real estate for the sisters’ clothing store, Dash. A representative for the Kardashians said that while they are always scouting options in NYC, no plans for a store are in order.

We sure hope that it will be a long—and we mean looong—time before we see any more of the Kardashian clan in our home. Leave the city style to us, and you three can tackle beach fashion.

A Date With Tom Mark

Fashion designer Tom Mark is the man behind the infamous Mark Wong Nark line. The line, named after his father who passed away 15 years ago, is responsible for clothing stars Tyra Banks, Cameron Diaz and Kim Kardashian. His line has appeared in music videos for Madonna, George Michel and Paula Abdul. Denise Richards dodged bullets while wearing his leggings in the James Bond movie "The World Is Not Enough."

Originally from Thailand, Tom moved to Los Angeles when he was seventeen. His older brother recognized Tom's raw talent and pushed him toward fashion school. Tom enrolled in FIDM and it was there that a designer was born.

DASH
Your Summer Belongs to the Kardashians

So I say this as nice as I possibility can; Do we really need another reality show from the Kardashians? No, I think not… but E! has decided to give Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian their own reality show entitled Kourtney and Khloe in Miami. The show will debut August 2009; it will follow the girls from Los Angeles to South Florida as they try to open a new Dash boutique. The plot of this “reality show” is so predictable that you already know that the girls will try to focus on designing and hiring staffers for their new store, but get sucked into South Beach's famous party scene.
