Kardashian Klan Reference Is a Fashion Kalamity

kim kardashianIt's common practice, if not mandatory, for people to change anything beginning with a "C" to a "K" when writing about the Kardashians. Because it's kute. But a recent press release for their Kardashian Kollection (actually written that way) sent people into a tizzy when the girls referred to themselves as a "klan." Not kool. (I hope you realize I'm going to be doing this throughout the rest of the post.)

Here's what happened: The sisters (read: their people) sent out invitations to a select group of fancy, fashion insiders for a Sears-sponsored party celebrating their new line. In said invitation, they wrote: "Join the stylish Kardashian klan on September 6th at the private studio of the legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz for an exclusive preview of their fabulous new fashion Kollection for Sears."

Yikes, right? They just compared themselves to the Ku Klux Klan. And those guys have, like, the most hein sense of style ever.


Never mind the fact that they're a bunch of violent, racist, hatred-fueled a-holes who have caused pain and suffering to countless Americans throughout the years -- their clothing. Uch, what's up with it? And "is this thing on?" The white gowns (past Labor Day)? The covering their faces (dramatic, much?)? The wearing the same thing every single day (nasty!)? I'm shocked Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe would liken themselves to such an unkempt group.

I mean, the Kardashians have always fancied themselves fashion renegades, right? And they sort of are -- hence, their adorable, affordable line for Sears. This little spelling mistake so does not go with the girls' image. It's tre un-chic (or un-khik).

They should just leave the "C to K" conversions to us here on the Internet. And we'll leave the big hair, sexy curves, and eyelashes for days to them. I mean "kurves." Sorry.

What do you think about this?
