Reality star Kim Kardashian proved to be the talked-about celebrity at the Glamour awards in London, with a ﬁgure-hugging strapless, ﬂoor-length black dress.
The newly engaged Kardashian, wearing her $2 million 20·5 ct engagement ring, says she will keep her maiden name. She intends to have a long discussion with her ﬁancé shortly to make the ﬁnal plans for her wedding—and a TV-ﬁlmed one is not out of the question, Kardashian concedes.
Fearne Cotton (in Miu Miu), Katherine Jenkins, Eliza Doolittle, and Tulisa Contostavlos donned colourful red carpet dresses to break the grey mood that we had seen a great deal of during the last few months in the fashion biz.
And avoiding grey, but keeping their gowns more muted, were Rebecca Ferguson and Keri Hilson, in nude shades.
Jessie J wore Dolce & Gabbana, while the Saturdays opted for more muted tones, with Una Healy standing out in red.
With the UK in X Factor mode, host Dermot O’Leary talks about the show with the new panel, dishing the dirt on two of the judges—but there’s no conﬁrmation if former judge Cheryl Cole might appear as a guest.
New judge Tulisa Contostavlos of N-Dubz says there have been tears on the show already—and that she received a good-luck note from Cole when she stepped into the role.
