Kim Kardashian West Gearing Up to Launch Lingerie & Shapewear Line

4/20/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashain West is wasting no time in getting back into the clothing industry after announcing the end of DASH -- she's already hard at work on her own lingerie, intimates and shapewear line.

Sources close to KKW tell us for the last several months Kim's been developing a new brand that will serve all women. We're told it's not just Kim's name that will appear on the product ... she's had a hand in just about every aspect of the line's foundation -- from design to marketing -- and will run it top to bottom. 

Our sources say Kim's teamed up with the same group behind Khloe's successful Good American brand as well as Frame and MR Porter

Pretty quick turnaround, considering Kim, Kourtney and Khloe just announced on Thursday they'll be closing their DASH stores.

We're told the line should be out by year's end.

The Kardashians DASH Stores Are No More! We're Closing Our Doors

4/19/2018 2:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian are pulling the plug on their boutiques after nearly 12 years of being in business ... TMZ has learned.

DASH stores in L.A. and Miami, which sell the sisters' lines of clothing and accessories, will be closing up shop soon. Kim says ... "We’ve loved running DASH, but in the last few years we’ve all grown so much individually. We’ve been busy running our own brands, as well as being moms and balancing work with our families. We know in our hearts that it’s time to move on." 

She added, in a statement on her app, "We have to give a special thanks to the DASH employees and all of the incredible fans and customers who have supported us throughout the years!"

The Kardashians' New York shop closed in December 2016, and on an episode of 'KUWTK' they blamed it on NYC's extremely high rents.

The DASH stores are regularly featured on their show, and even got a spin-off called "Dash Dolls" ... but it only lasted one season. 

Not that there's been a lack of drama -- a woman was arrested last year after pointing a gun at a cashier at DASH in L.A. and returning later to brandish a machete ... where she was caught on video.

Gwen Stefani Going Hard In The P8NT With Own Cosmetics Line

4/2/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gwen Stefani's already mastered "The Voice" and now it looks like she's moving on to the face with her own line of cosmetics. 

Gwen's applied to trademark P8NT -- as in "paint" -- for her own makeup line. It's a clever name considering it'll include everything from nail polishes to hair color, in addition to the usual eyeliners, powders and lipsticks. Perfumes, moisturizers and sunscreens are also in the mix.

She's got a bit of experience in the makeup department. A few years back she partnered with Urban Decay for a makeup collection. If Gwen's branching out on her own, the collab must've no doubt gone well.

Serena Williams Ready to Dominate In the Cosmetics Game!!!

3/12/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Serena Williams wants to serve an ace on yo face ... with a new cosmetics line.

The tennis great filed legal docs to trademark "Aneres" (spells Serena backwards, btw). Serena had already locked down the name a while back, but it was for her clothing line. It looks like she now plans to slap her backwards name on a variety of beauty products. Boss move.

Serena's cosmetics vision includes skin care prep and makeup removing products, colognes and perfumes. There are also makeup kits, bath soaps, lipstick, lip gloss, eye shadow, eyeliner and mascara.

Kylie, your competition has arrived. 

Hard Candy Pulls #MeToo Trademark After Backlash

1/19/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

That was quick ... Hard Candy is dropping its push to trademark #MeToo for cosmetics after getting some serious backlash over the move.

TMZ broke the story Wednesday ... if the application was approved, Hard Candy would put the #MeToo on some of its products, but also intended to donate revenue to the movement. But CEO Jerome Falic now tells us ... the project didn't go over well with some customers.

Angry reactions on social media included claims the company was trying to glamorize, commercialize and capitalize on rape culture. 

Falic says they abandoned the application based on the response from the public. Still, he says they were going to donate 100% of profits from the #MeToo sales, and "our objective was to bring greater awareness to this important and long overdue movement." 

He adds, Hard Candy will continue to support "the work of this watershed movement and other causes that respect the dignity of women and all people."

Hard Candy Makeup Polishing Up for #MeToo Movement

1/17/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The #MeToo movement is about to be way more in fashion ... if Hard Candy Cosmetics gets its way.

The cosmetics giant has applied to trademark #MeToo for fragrances and makeup ... which we're guessing means you'll see the hashtag on lipsticks, nail polishes, mascaras and whatnot. 

We know what you're thinking, but CEO Jerome Falic tells us this isn't a straight cash grab. He says the company's intention is to give back to women worldwide. He wasn't more specific than that -- but an industry source tells us the plan is to donate proceeds to the #MeToo cause. 

Falic says they're still in planning stages, so it's unclear which products will get the hashtag treatment if the trademark's approved.

Women's March Pussyhats Move Over, Douche ... Pussy Power Getting New Scent

1/11/2018 3:34 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The scent of a woman will be pussy if a budding entrepreneur can nail down a trademark for her new line of fragrances inspired by the enduring symbol of the Women's March ... the pussyhat.

Fran Moss filed docs with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in hopes of flooding the market with fragrance-emitting wicks, sachets, pet sprays, body sprays and perfumes -- all with the pussy label.

According to the docs, Fran's toying with product names like pussy juice, pussy power, pussy now, and pussy positive. She also wants her trademark to include the "pussy power color" pink, and the pussyhat ears.

Good luck, Fran -- and if you're looking for a spokeswoman ... 

Meghan Markle She Can Still Have a Side Hustle

1/3/2018 9:44 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Meghan Markle has nothing standing in her way if she ever wants to start a beauty line once she joins the royal family.

Reports surfaced Tuesday that Markle was partnering up with Victoria Beckham on a bio-botox line, but we're told they're completely untrue. 

Palace sources tell us Meghan's future royal status won't prevent her from diving into her own business once she's married to Prince Harry. There are no U.K. laws that prohibit a member of the royal family from having a side hustle. All she has to do is follow the same rules as the normies, and she's good to go.

And, we're told, Royal protocol does not prohibit business ventures by someone in Markle's position. The Countess of Wessex, who married Prince Edward, ran a PR company after becoming a royal fam member. 

Meghan had run her own lifestyle blog, The Tig, but shut it down after 3 years.

Kim Kardashian's Perfume Line Australians Say Somethin' Stinks

12/6/2017 7:34 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian's Crystal Gardenia perfume line has been a worldwide smash ... problem is, customers in Australia, New Zealand and other countries have plunked down the cash but still don't smell nice.

TMZ has learned the perfume is considered a "flammable/hazardous material" because of its alcohol content and can't be shipped by FedEx and other carriers. Overseas customers have been complaining because there was no warning on Kim's website that there were blackout zones.

Sources connected to Kim tell us she and her people were first told there wouldn't be an issue in shipping the goods overseas. Now that they know, they're in the process of contacting customers one by one who are still empty-handed, promising a full refund. 

At the time of this post Kim's website was not updated with the blackout zones, but we're told that will happen STAT. 

Kylie Jenner Early Christmas At Her L.A. Pop-Up Shop

11/21/2017 8:47 AM PST

No, that's not a Black Friday mob at Walmart -- it's the opening of the Kylie Cosmetics pop-up shop in L.A. and, so far at least, no one's been injured fighting over a lip kit.

Still, super eager shoppers waited their turn inside the Topshop at The Grove, when the doors swung open Monday for Kylie's gear.

It's one of 7 cosmetics pop-ups Kylie's opening across the US for the holiday shopping season. Others opened in Chicago, Vegas, Atlanta, Miami, Houston and New York.

Kylie wasn't there for obvious reasons, but members of her glam squad were giving makeup tutorials. Based on the crowds ... we suspect Kylie will be able to afford gifts this holiday season. 

Kim Kardashian Perfume Line Grosses $10 MIL in One Day!!!

11/16/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian made $10 million in just ONE DAY of selling perfume worldwide ... and incredibly not even a single customer got a whiff yet. 

Kim's fragrance hit the online world Wednesday morning. Customers got to choose between 3 fragrances -- Crystal Gardenia, Crystal Gardenia Oud and Crystal Gardenia Citrus. Only 300,000 bottles were produced and they're expected to completely sell out by Thursday night. 

Beyonce could take a lesson from Kim, who made lemonade out of her robbery. She used healing crystals to calm her nerves after the Paris robbery last year, and the crystal is now the cornerstone of her perfume line. 

The $10 mil sales tab didn't happen by accident. Kim launched a social media campaign that would have impressed General MacArthur, and it clearly paid off. We're told in just the first hour sales hit $1 million.

Kim didn't just lend her name to the new fragrances ... she was involved in every aspect of the launch, from developing the scents to creating the packaging.

When the 300,000 bottles are accounted for, she'll have sold $14 mil ... in a day and a half.

Kris, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney Those Women Screwed Me Royally ... So I Want $32 Million!!!

9/21/2017 3:10 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim, Khloe, Kourtney Kardashian and Kris Jenner are being sued by a guy who ran a beauty company who claims they screwed him out of a cut of the profits ... and he wants as much as $32 MILLION.

Here's the backstory. John LaBonty was CEO and President of Boldface, a company that markets beauty products. According to the lawsuit, the Kardashians gave Boldface an exclusive deal to market all its beauty stuff. Boldface morphed into a different company, but LaBonty says it didn't affect his interest.

LaBonty claims he had a 5% equity interest in all products in the Kardashian Beauty line. He says the Kardashian women stopped making any effort to market, promote and support the line and thwarted the company's ability to make money off the products.

LaBonty shockingly says his 5% interest that was not realized is in the many millions. He's vague, but says he's definitely entitled to $6 million and maybe as much as $32 million.

Kylie Jenner Lip Kit's Worth Over $400 Million!!! (If You Believe Kris Jenner)

8/9/2017 7:00 AM PDT

Kylie Jenner's well on her way to turning her cosmetics line into a billion-dollar brand ... according to her mom/biz manager, Kris Jenner.

Since officially launching her famous Kylie Cosmetics lip kit line in 2016, inquiring minds wanted to know how well the brand was doing. Well, hold your horses because Mama Bear told Women's Wear Daily the brand, in just 18 months, has done $420 million in retail sales.

Kris -- in an interview with the website last week in her Hidden Hills crib -- provided the figure and reportedly provided the site with documentation. The site reports Kylie's line projects $386 million in sales in 2017 ... putting it on track to become a billion dollar company by 2022.

We shall see ...
