What a hullabaloo! Yes we can only be talking about one thing… the Kardashians landing in London. Kim and her sister Kourtney caused absolute mayhem when they arrived at Aqua on Argyll Street last night for the launch of their Kardashian Kollection for Dorothy Perkins in a big old Rolls Royce. Hundreds of screaming fans had gathered outside the venue to get a glimpse of the sisters, accompanied by Sir Philip Green. And they weren’t disappointed given that they spent a good 15 minutes outside posing for pictures in the freezing cold. Naturally their Keeping Up With The Kardashians film crew were on hand to catch every moment.
Once inside the party, and over sushi and champagne, Kim told us that they are huge fans of the British X Factor and are rooting for favourite Ella Henderson to win. ‘If we could appear on any of the shows in the UK it would be X Factor,’ she said. ‘We’ve just met Ella and she’s great. And obviously our sister Khloe hosts the US version so we’re fans.’ She added that her sister Khloe won’t have any trouble dealing with Mr Nasty, Simon Cowell. ‘Khloe is a tough cookie herself. We’re so excited for her.’ Kourtney added, ‘She just needs to be herself as she has such an amazing personality. We’ve met Simon a lot before. He’s so fun, so real. We love Simon. He’s always been the perfect gentleman.’
The sisters, who we had a one-to-two with at The Dorchester Hotel yesterday, have also fallen in love with Brits Cheryl Cole and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. ‘I love Cheryl, I’ve met her a number of times. She’s so beautiful and so sweet,’ said Kim. ‘And [Kate Middleton] is so stunning and he [Prince William] is such a class act.’ Kourtney added, ‘I haven’t been to London for 15 years and it is not at all how I remember. We haven’t got to see that much but it’s been fun driving around today. We saw Buckingham Palace and the changing of the guards.’
Also at the party were this year’s X Factor contestants Union J, Rylan Clark and Ella Henderson. But much to our disappointment there was NO Kanye West. Maybe that’s why Kim and Kourtney left their own party after an hour and a half to go visit him back at their hotel. You’d hope.
