Kim Kardashian may be going through a costly divorce with her husband of 74 days – Kris Humphries, but that hasn’t stopped her creating a new perfume called True Reflections. And to help her with her advertisment campaign, she has revealed to her fans on Twitter (where else?) that she has been ‘channeling’ the glamour of her icon – Elizabeth Taylor. She tweeted, after posting a second picture from her campaign, ‘Another pic from my True Reflection fragrance ad campaign…ultra glam!’LOVE red lips! #Channeling ElizabethTay.’ Her true fans will already know that she is inspired by the late Hollywood actress as she attended the Christies auction, back in December of last year, and spent a whopping $65,000 on a set of three gold and jade Lorraine Schwartz bangles that were once owned by the star.
The 31-year-old unveiled the first photo on her Twitter page earlier today where she can be seen leaning against a gold-coloured frame, wearing a silver, sleeveless dress with a plunging neckline and smoky eyed make up, not too dissimilar to the Hollywood actress in Cleopatra. Elizabeth Taylor died at the age of 79 in March last year and Kim was one of the final people to interview her in an article that was published in the March issue of US Harper’s Bazaar. Kim told the Hollywood actress “You are my idol. But I’m six husbands and some big jewels behind. What should I do?” The Oscar winning star replied, “I never planned to acquire a lot of jewels or a lot of husbands. For me, life happened, just as it does for anyone else.”
Fans of Kims on Twitter obviously agree with her likeness to the Cleopatra star as one tweeted: ‘@Kim Kardashian is the modern day Elizabeth Taylor! Those pictures are timeless.’ Later on, Kim tweeted back, “That was a pic from my new fragrance ad campaign True Reflection, which comes out this spring! It is so different than my other fragrances!” Kim was returning to Los Angeles after she had spent time visiting her sister Khloe Kardashian in Dallas. Khloe had moved to Texas to be with her husband, basketball player Lamar Odom. The move was prompted by Lamar’s transfer to the Dallas Mavericks from the LA Lakers. Upon her return, Kim headed straight for a nail salon in her own private and custom built Rolls Royce! Oh what it is to have money! True Reflections follows her other scents, Kim Kardashian, Gold and Love and will be out this Spring.
