The Kardashians are fashion; they get it. You can tell this by the presence of Khloé on E!’s Fashion Police (the ultimate in fashion authorities), Kim’s constant presence at fashion shows and collaborative lines and now through their handbag collection. They’re untouchable.

Well, one of the funny things about being a deity in virtually all fashion design (shoes, bags, garments, accessories, you name it) is critique. Being at the top means you have a lot of haters.

One of my favorite segments on Fashionista.com is the “Adventures in Copyright.” The staff will usually bring up copyright claims where lawsuits have been filed or simply just instances of intense ‘inspiration.’ This week, they noticed an incredible similarity between the new Kardashian bag collection and bags from other less notable brands like Balenciaga, YSL, Celine and Chanel. Obviously, the issue here is that these brands have been too intensely inspired by Kim and the gang.

What’s that? You didn’t know that the Kardashians also did music videos? Don’t worry, no one else did either. Back in the eighties, Kris Jenner (then Kris Kardashian) made a Rebecca Black-style music video dedicated to her friends on her thirtieth birthday. All I can really say about this, is who makes their friends a music video on their own birthday? And for that matter, who makes their friends a music video, period?

I have to give it to Kris though, aside from having a voice that might make even the deaf cringe, she does make an entertaining video. And by entertaining, I mean so bad that it’s actually entertaining. But wait just a minute. The Kardashian music video fad didn’t end in the 80s. Welcome to 2011: the year the Kardashians–all 100 of them–put together a family music video to Katy Perry’s “E.T.”

For all the ladies reading this, watch the video and tell me you don’t want to have Rob’s babies.

This past Thursday, sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian were interviewed on Philadelphia’s Morning News Program “Good Day” to talk about their newly launched clothing line at Sears. I’m sure you’ve all seen the awfully produced commercials by now. (Because the world can’t seem to get enough Kardashian).

As soon as the interview was over, news anchor Mike Jerrick was under the impression that the cameras had stopped rolling, asking “Can they still hear us?” He, along with co-anchor Sheinelle Jones, then began speaking in high pitched, nasally voices similar to the Kardashian sisters’ voices, while also poking fun at the girls’ apparent love of shoulder pads.

While the video is funny, all I can think is “What were Kourtney and Kim thinking after seeing this?” They couldn’t have been too happy, and I highly doubt that the next Dash store will break ground anywhere near Philadelphia.

Model Coco Rocha recently tweeted,“The word ‘fashionista’ has lost all meaning (if it even had any to begin with).” I approvingly tweeted back #preachsista. According to urban dictionary, fashionista is defined as “a person devoted to fashion clothing, particularly unique or high fashion.” In this day and age of fashion bloggers and reality TV star overload, it seems like everybody and their mother are trying to get their foot in the fashion door.

While some are genuinely stylish, others are just plain tacky. When reality TV stars like JWoww, DJ Pauly D and The Kardashians have actually been backed to start their own clothing linesthe term ‘fashionista’ becomes fuzzy. I know, I love the Kardashians too, but a line needs to be drawn.

While, yes, fashion is supposed to be a means of self-expression, celebrities from the likes of Lady Gaga to Nicki Minaj have brought it to a new, extremely unnecessary level. Sure these “celebrities” are entertaining at a distance, but I wouldn’t exactly call the pom-pom shirt that Nicki Minaj donned during New York Fashion Week a wardrobe staple.

There’s only so much fugly we can take people! So please, do us a favor and stick to the over-dramatization that you’re used to and leave the fashion to those of us who actually know a thing or two.

It’s a classic scenario. Boy meets girl, girl announces they’re dating and the next week tabloids announce that boy and girl are engaged. Girl then confirms the news that in a few days she’s getting married.

The happy and delusional couple.

The happy and delusional couple.

Wait, that hasn’t happened to you or your friends yet? Oh, right, if you’re reading this blog, then you’re probably not a “celebrity.” As Khloe Kardashian, 24, and her family taught me this week, in celebville, meeting someone and then marrying them four weeks later is “romantic” and completely normal (in order to boost your show’s ratings).
