Khloe & Lamar: Rumours or Truth?

For around a month now there have been numerous rumours regarding Khloe Kardashian Odom and Lamar Odom’s relationship. First there were reports Lamar cheated, then there were reports they were splitting for good. More shocking rumours stated that Lamar is a drug addict, despite being a sports player, so Luxe Models wanted to get to the bottom of the rumours and try and find out the truth.

It seems strange that so many different media sites and gossip magazines are repeatedly releasing stories about the infidelity claims, as well as the latest drug taking reports. However, in this day and age the majority of people know to not always trust the media. 

When you’re in the spotlight there are always going to be rumours that a person has cheated, even if they are someone who is extremely unlikely to. All it needs is a person who has been in contact with a star, who wants to earn some quick cash, a bit of proof that they have in fact met them and bam, you have a story.
If a person is going to sell a story on a star they will have made sure they took hard evidence away from the situation when they had their opportunity, so the fact there isn’t any evidence makes it seem unlikely to be true.

In relation to the rumours surrounding his drug taking, with him being a sports star surely they would also have proof about that. He would also more than likely have been suspended from playing basketball, but it appears that hasn’t happened either.

Furthermore the couple haven’t showed any signs that they are splitting on their Twitter or Instagram accounts, instead only ranting about how fed up they both are about the rumours in the media.

In fact the only thing Khloe is probably worrying about at the moment is the release of Eminem’s new song, which mentions Khloe and refers to her as the ‘ugly Kardashian’. Luckily Khloe is thick-skinned so we’re sure the news won’t bother her too much, especially because she’s anything but ugly!

How to Take the Perfect Picture

You can be the most beautiful person in the world and still be un-photogenic due to a number of different things. Some people can photograph a lot better than others due to their bone structure, as well as their features, which can stand out a lot more on camera. The camera angles can also have a massive effect on how a picture turns out, so Luxe Models have put together a few simple pointers on how to help you out. 

  •              Find your best angle- The majority of people have a ‘good’ side, as one side of the face is often different from the other. Have a look at yourself in the mirror and decide which your ‘best side’ is and then position yourself in photos so that side is more exposed.
  •             Find your best pose- This might sound really cringey but you should spend a good amount of time in the mirror looking at a number of different poses, from smiles to pouts. See what facial expression looks the best and then stick to this pose for guaranteed good pictures- unless it’s a spur of the moment shot, then you can go wild!
  •             Practice your posture- Look at your body language in photos and copy whatever looks best. The main things to remember are to breath in slightly, hold your arms away from your sides slightly and put your chin up.
  •              Be natural- Although this one may seem easier said than done when you’re being made to say ‘cheese’ natural poses look so much better than forced ones. Real life isn’t a still images, it’s constantly moving so catching you off guard is when you will look your best. Try not to force smiles and instead think of things that make you laugh when taking a picture, this way the camera will capture your true beauty, the way other people do!

Once you have done all these tips you should be well on your way to taking the perfect picture, however, it is also always useful to look up pictures of top models on the internet and attempt to mimic their poses and posture! As the old saying goes, practice makes perfect, so get taking those ‘selfies’ now!

Tattoos; This Season's Trend

So it seems the latest trend amongst celebrities is tattooing your body- with the more tattoos covering your skin the better- a trend that Luxe Models won’t be copying. Three people who are considerably eye-catching due to their tattoos are Cher Lloyd, Harry Styles and Cara Delevingne  unfortunately for them though although the tattoos may be eye-catching, they’re not necessarily nice. 

Cher Lloyd wowed at the recent Teen Choice Awards with her new hair-do, which was a sleek and sophisticated cropped style. However, although her hair-do and natural make-up suited her one thing really let her down, her arm tattoos. It’s sort of a given that once you start inking a large proportion of your body you will no longer be able to pull off the sophisticated look, yet Cher decided to give it a go, but unfortunately she could not pull it off. Furthermore the tattoos looked miss-matched and out of place, with no real pattern or theme going on. The tattoos on her arms include skulls, love hearts, quotes and question marks and although Cher has previously said, “I don’t have a favourite tattoo. I like all of my tattoos. I don’t think I’ll regret any of them” we somehow think she will.

Then there’s Harry Styles, who seems to have treated his body like a piece of paper, doodling on it, writing random words and just in general causing a mess. His tattoos consist of birds, stars and literally scribble. Although he can pull it off slightly more than Cher, (solemnly because he’s a lad) there is still no denying that he looks absolutely hideous.

Cara Delevingne’s tattoos on the other hand are quite interesting and pleasing to look at. She currently has the head of a lion tattooed on one of her fingers, which looks more like art work than a tattoo (we know that tattoos are all essentially art-work but this tattoo is one that people would actually want to look at). However, just as we thought Cara was the sensible one she recently got ‘Made In England’ tattooed to the sole of her foot, (ouch) thankfully with it being on the sole of her foot it is easily covered, we just hope she doesn’t go down the same path as Cher and Harry.

Some tattoos can be beautiful and really meaningful, however, these young stars need to remember that this latest trend isn’t something they can just throw away, but something that takes a lot of money and pain to have removed.

The Kardashian's Latest Drama

Although this family may use the press for their own personal gain and success, they certainly suffer from the negatives it brings too. Kim got slated numerous times throughout her pregnancy with people constantly commenting on her choice of clothes, as well as her weight. Yes, she did put on a lot of weight and she did look huge, however, if you had boobs and a bum as big as hers and then add on a baby bump you would probably look huge too.

Then there's Khloe having to deal with the constant reminder from the media that she is 'trying' but 'not succeeding' to have a baby- something we bet she's somehow already aware of. She has also recently had to deal with numerous cheating rumours, something that would be hard for any couple to deal with- never mind one in the public eye who is always pressurised in to doing what the public want.

So Kim and Khloe have seemed to have a tough time lately, especially as Kim hasn't come out of hiding since giving birth- something that has added to even more publicity (clever Kim). But this time the one Kardashian who always seems to avoid the drama and negativity that the media brings, (but not the drama Scott causes), has this time been targeted.

Kourtney is facing a lawsuit after a model she previously worked with has claimed he is Mason's biological father and therefore wants joint custody, uh-oh. He claims that they met on a photo shoot and had unprotected sex around the time that Kourtney and Scott were going through a rough patch. Here at Luxe Models we very much doubt these rumours are true, as this is typically what people do who are wanting fame. Mason is the image of Kourtney and Scott and if there was any truth behind these allegations why would the male model only bring it up now?

We feel sorry for Scott in the situation as it must be hell having someone else claim to be the father of your child, regardless of whether there is no truth in it. We don't think Scott and Kourtney deserve to have to deal with this and it won't be nice for Mason to read when he gets older.

However, they use their fame to earn their money so do they have a right to complain when it doesn't benefit them? We will leave that up to you....
