Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me…you can’t get fooled again.

When Kim Kardashian unveiled the above photo on Twitpic.com, I knew she was just playin’. Remember her ‘blonde’ do back in April?

Turns out celeb hairstylist Ken Paves was behind Kim’s cropped bob. It was all a part of a tress transformation for an upcoming issue of O Magazine.

Sister Act: Interview With Handbag Designers, Magnes Sisters

As a handbag buff, I was beside myself when I was offered the opportunity to interview Dina, Yael, and Tamar Magnes – the sister act behind Magnes Sisters, a line of fashion forward handbags. Read on for my Q&A with this talented trio. Spoiled Pretty is taking you behind the bag…welcome to the Magnes family!

SP: How did your handbag line come about?
MS:
When we were growing up in Israel, our Grandmother prophesied the careers of each sister – one would design clothing, the second, jewelry, and the third would be a graphic designer. Many years later, we moved to New York together to follow those dreams and collaborate on a handbag line that would use all of our skills. The rest is history!

SP: What was the hardest part about breaking into the industry?
MS:
Breaking in takes a lot of persistence and the drive to keep going. Slowly, by slowly you realize that people are starting to recognize the product and this is what makes it so rewarding.

SP: How would you describe your design aesthetic?

MS:
Our design aesthetic can be summed up by New York City, clean design, and modern vintage!

SP: What inspires your designs?
MS:
The collection is inspired by several factors in our lives – first of all, grandmothers! Our own grandmother had a huge impact on our lives, and was the reason we chose to collaborate. She also had fabulous fashion sense! We loved her vintage style and family has always been very important in our work as well. Secondly, we are constantly being inspired by our home, New York City. Our bags have a very urban design aesthetic, and we are always committed to making every bag functional. They are truly designed for the modern woman on the go and we like to think of them as city chic!

SP: What is your favorite Magnes Sisters handbag to date?
Dina:
My favorite would have to be the Gallery from our classic collection.
Yael:
I’m personally a fan of the new Dancing in the Streets for fall.
Tamar:
I love the I Love Bag from our new fall 09 collection!

SP: How do you come up with the names for your bags?
MS:
There are so many places where you have to be conservative in this industry, this is a fun part! Names are all part of a family of bags and we never use the names of girls. We consider, where you would wear the bags, how are they going to be used, and what will you need to put in them.

SP: If I were to search your handbags, what beauty products would I find?
Dina:
Kiehl’s hand cream – I’m a Kiehl’s girl!
Yael:
Sunscreen – SPF 35, Maybelline mascara, Mario Badescu hand cream.
Tamar:
None! I put it all on at home but in my makeup bag there I have a bunch Ricky’s and MAC, Maybelline mascara, MAC bronzer, MAC lip gloss.

SP: Are there other handbag designers that you like to wear?
Dina:
Marni and Chanel.
Yael:
Rachel Nasvik and Chanel.
amar: Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Prada and Chanel.

SP: Who do you envision wearing your bags? What kind of woman is your typical customer?
MS: Definitely a city girl – we always design with chic, modern, working women in mind. The bags are always multi-functional and stylish enough for her to be seen out and about in!

SP: Which celebrity would you love to have wear one of your bags that hasn’t yet?
Dina: Chloe Sevigny, definitely.
Yael:
Michelle Williams and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Tamar:
Katie Holmes, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Liv Tyler.

SP: Does the fact that you’re sisters make it easier or harder to work together?
Dina: It can be a little difficult because we are all so very passionate about the collection and know each other so well.
Yael:
We know each other completely, so there are lots of times when we have fun creating things together, from baking cookies, to planning a party – and we always have had that relationship.
Tamar:
Easier on one hand because we trust each other completely!

SP: Do you have plans to expand your line beyond handbags?
MS: Yes – we want to do paper products eventually, similar to Kate Spade’s line, as well as jewelry, jackets, and many more!

SP: What’s next for Magnes Sisters?
MS:
We want to continue growing, so your readers should get ready to see the Magnes Sisters brand in larger stores! We want to always be having fun, no matter what the future holds for us.

Kim Kardashian’s Old Hollywood Makeup Look, Created by Troy Jensen

When Dior Beauty invited Troy Jensen to their first annual Christian Dior Beauty Lunch benefiting Operation Smile, he invited his favorite muse, Kim Kardashian. On his blog, Troy dishes about his inspiration for Kim’s makeup look – and how he pulled it all off.

“I sent Kim a collage of images of Ava Gardner as inspiration for the look i created. I wanted to create a look that was old Hollywood glam with a touch of a modern chic. I first prepped Kim’s skin with an eye cream and moistureizer, then blended a concealer under the eyes, forehead, down the center of the nose and blended well into her skin. I then applied a liquid foundation to give a subtle golden glow. I set with a finishing powder and dusted a Rose Pink powder blush to the apples of her cheeks. I applied a bronzer to the outer perimeter of temples, down her cheek bones, and jaw line. The bronzer was a golden tan with a subtle shimmer. When I’m creating a flawless complexion on Kim, I feel she looks stunning with a little natural gleam to the skin. For the eyes I wanted to create a daytime glam. Which involved a subtle golden smokey eye, glowing complexion, and a sheer red lip. I first blended a golden bronze eyeshadow onto the entire eyelid using a matte bone color in the arch of the brow. I then lined her entire eye with a chocolate brown eyeliner, curled and coated her lashes and added a few individual eyelashes to just the ends of her eyes for an old Hollywood flare. I topped the look off with defining her lips with a neutral lip color and filled in her entire lip with a sheer Cherry red lip gloss. This look is sexy, Its fresh, Its glamorous, and perfect for the alluring Kim Kardashian.”

New Moon hits theaters November 20, 2009…so it makes perfect sense that the film’s star was spotted on Tuesday at the Santa Monica Pier, posing for the November cover of Allure.

Makeup genius Dick Page and hairstylist Serge Normant prepped and prettified, before Kristen stepped in front of Michael Thompson‘s lens.
