The moment we got to finally take a breather from Kim Kardashian wedding rehearsal/wedding day/makeout sessions on the Italian honeymoon madness, Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop Momager Chris gave us another reason to talk about her daughters: the release of new promotional photos for their Sears Kardashian line. Like the Kardashians themselves, the pics are a mix of high-brow (shot by legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz) and low-brow (Annie’s shots usually are more Prada and Vogue than Sears). But the clincher are the images—Kourtney, Khloe and Kim dolled up in lace and lingerie and holding on tight to each other’s nearly nude bodies.
Anyone with a sister has probably never wanted to cuddle this close with her while wearing underwear…and especially in front of a camera. But pop culture has long been obsessed with women who share a gene pool looking like they’re moments away from a sex romp with each other. Recently it’s not just the Kardashians, as most of this year’s Jersey Shore episodes have revolved around whether Mike would hook up with sisters, a move that the house dubbed “twinning!”.
I’d like to end on a well-worded diatribe on how hinted-at incest is never sexy and never a good way to peddle clothes at Sears, but actually, maybe I’m wrong. The hot sister and twinning phenomenon has been around since Hugh Hefner first started Playboy. So, please, can someone explain it to me in the comments below: what is so hot about sexy sisters?

Not her average looks in this video.
Kim Kardashian stepped into the booth with The Dream to record a charity single “Jam (Let’s Dance).” Click on over to “Sound Off” to listen to the track , Eb the Celeb’s review pretty much sums up my feelings on the music, but let’s take a look at Kim’s promo style.
The album artwork features Kim with tousled hair, a blinged out necklace and a black bustier, an outfit I’d imagine her wearing while she’s dancing to the track in the club. The reality star has already shot a music video for the song and shared looks from the set on her blog. “I swear Hype Williams is the most creative guy I know!” she wrote about the iconic producer who did the video. ”He is a genius! He came up with all of the different looks and wanted me to be experiment with looks that I had never tried before. With each look I felt like I was a different character.” Take a look at some of Kim’s “characters”:
“It’s definitely a different look from anything I’ve tried before!,” she said. ”How amazing are those nails!?”
“I loved the red lips!” she said. Racy!
“Hype Williams came up with this Bo Derek braids look for the music video and I loved it! It took about four hours to do…I wish I could have worn it longer.”
While the barely there bikini shot looks exactly like the Kim Kardashian we always see, the other two video looks barely look like her (toasty skin, braids? Hmm…). I’m all about trying different looks and styles, but what do you think: fab or fail?

It’s a bestie face-off!
Birds of a feather flock together so it’s not surprising to see that BFFs Lala Vazquez and Kim Kardashian own the same shirt. As many times as they’ve been snapped shopping together they might’ve just fell for this silk Helmut Lang cowl-neck top at the same time!
The reality star summerized an ivory version of the blouse at InStye’s annual Super Saturday event in the Hamptons and paired it with a coral draped skirt, waist-cinching belt and peep-toe Christian Louboutin ”Madame Butterfly” heels.
Meanwhile, the newlywed arrived at the Cipriani Hotel in NYC right before she wed hubby Carmelo Anthony and mixed her grey top with menswear. An over-sized blazer, leggings and studded Christian Louboutin “Rollerball” loafers (Kanye has these shoes too!) completed her look.
Who wore it better?

I’m going with treat.
Mariah is hot like fiyah, but homegirl must still be freezing.
They both make sexy firefighters. Nick looks good in uniform and there’s no denying Mariah’s sex appeal.
Ladies, go and fulfill your pole dancer, porn star, slutty fantasies … Showing off your boobs, butt and stomach is only excusable TODAY.
