The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Kim Kardashian Admits to Fashion Faux Pas, 20th Cycle of ANTM to Include Girls and Guys, and Paris Hilton Sues International Perfume Palace

• Kim Kardashian has finally admitted to at least one of her recent fashion faux pas. If you remember, the reality star was photographed in Miami wearing a decidedly unflattering (on her, at least) yellow suede ‘Eddy’ jacket from Acne, leather skirt, and cage sandals. Kardashian took to her blog to address her misstep. “Ok, ok, I am putting myself on the worst dress [sic] list for this outfit,” she wrote, “I wanted a little color [ed note: fancy that!] while I’m living in Miami, so my intentions were good, but the cut isn’t for me! You definitely need to be taller and thinner to pull this jacket style off!…The mirror was lying to me this day! Where were my sisters or my boyfriend when I needed a good opinion?!” Or better yet, where was Christine Centenera to recoup her stolen swag? (Kim Kardashian)

Justin Bieber is the new face of Adidas. The teenage crooner inked a two-year deal to front the brand’s new ‘Live Your Style’ campaign for Spring 2013. The ads are set to launch in February. (WWD)

• Tyra Banks can’t wait to have kids who will sit and listen as she talks about her huge forehead, awkward teenage years, and that time Naomi Campbell shaded her and totally forgot about it years later. The model mogul dished to Steve Harvey on his new daytime show, “I’m really ready to have some babies. I want babies!,” she said. “I’ve always wanted them, but I’ve been saying ‘I want babies in three years’ since I was, like, 27. And now… I’m 38 — I think it’s time. [My eggs are] going to be hard-boiled and fried and scrambled up in there, so it’s time to get those eggs working!” (UsWeekly)

•In other Ty Ty news the 20th cycle of America’s Next Top Model will include male models. The CW announced on their blog yesterday, “In Cycle 20, for the first time, male models will be added to the group of contestants competing for the title of America’s Next Top Model, and will move into the models’ house alongside the women. Also in Cycle 20, viewers will continue to have a direct impact on the competition by voting for their favorite models though social media, helping decide who gets eliminated and who stays in the running to becoming America’s Next Top Model.” By now, we almost expect Ms. Banks and the CW to announce a new gimmick to keep the show fresh every season. While the past few changes to the program have been tepidly welcomed (remember that cringe-worthy ‘British Invasion’ season?), this new angle might actually bring a new, interesting dynamic to the show. What do you think? Will you be tuning in? (Tyra Banks’s Twitter)

Paris Hilton and Parlux Fragrances are taking International Perfume Palace, Inc. to court. Apparently, International Perfume Palace packages its line of “Paris Paris” products in a way that is “identical or confusingly similar” to Hilton’s wares. Hilton and Parlux claim that IPP’s packaging is meant to trick consumers into thinking they’re purchasing the heiress’s coveted fragrances. Oh, and for those of you wondering who in tarnation is buying Paris Hilton’s fragrances, keep in mind that she’s made $1.3 billion on her scents since 2005. (WWD)

Alessandra Ambrosio will model the $2.5 million *Fantasy* Bra during this year’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show.

A 20 carat white diamond sits in the centrepiece.” (Vogue UK)
