Kim Kardashian’s love affair with Australia continues with the pop culture queen confirmed to visit again later this month. The drop-in, to launch a signature fragrance — Kim’s sixth scent on the market — comes weeks after Kardashian’s trek around the country with her touring rapper husband Kanye West and their baby girl North.
“I’m so excited to be launching my latest fragrance Fleur Fatale in Australia. I love Australia so much, I can’t help always wanting to come back,” Kardashian says.
She will spend two days in Melbourne to spruik the scent, with a VIP launch event at Spice Market on October 18 and a public appearance at Chadstone Shopping Centre the next day (October 19).
Kardashian’s affection for Melbourne food and fashion is well noted. She bought at Marais and Zambesi and ate at Spice Temple and KFC. “I did notice that everyone in Melbourne dresses very chic and sleek, and that they wear a lot of black,” she told Confidential. “I wore black pretty much the whole time I was in Melbourne — I guess I fit in pretty well.”
Fleur Fatale will launch exclusively in Chemist Warehouse, My Chemist and My Beauty Spot stores.

Last night an ultra chic soirée was held in a penthouse suite at The Peninsula Hotel in Paris for Natalia Alaverdian‘s label A.W.A.K.E co-hosted by Miroslava Duma, Caroline de Maigret, Melvin Chua, and Kim Kardashian. The latter was a late arrival avec Kanye in tow, but momager Kris Jenner showed up before her daughter so we caught a moment with her to ask her how she’s feeling about Kendall Jenner, who’s been in Paris and Milan for the shows, and her booming modeling career. Plus, she sets the record straight about those rumors that Kendall was being bullied by fellow models backstage.
Who are you wearing?
I’m wearing a Saint Laurent dress and shoes and a Bottega Veneta bag.
What fashion item are you lusting after right now?
There’s a Dolce & Gabbana basket tote that they did about a decade ago and every time I’m on vacation or in Europe there isn’t a time that goes by that I don’t run into the store and ask them if they have that basket. This year on the runway at the fashion show that Kendall walked in one of the models was carrying one of those baskets and I was texting like crazy asking, “Who has that basket?!” So maybe they’ll bring it back.
When did you get to Paris?
We just got here yesterday so I’m trying to catch up with my jet lag. We went with Kendall to a fitting today with Olivier Rousteing of Balmain. She’ll be walking in the show. Then we just did a little shopping…at Balmain, actually.
How do you feel about Kendall’s modeling career taking off?
I’m just really proud of Kendall, because she’s worked really hard to try to get her sea legs and figure what this business is all about. I think she learned a couple of years ago how much work it is. She definitely has that work ethic gene and she’s not afraid to dig in and work hard. You know it’s not easy for these girls. That’s one thing I learned really fast when she got into this business. It’s a ton of work and you really have to be strong and committed and know what you’re doing. But Kendall’s with Society Agency in New York and we just let Chris Gay and his team totally take over and lead her career. You know this is not my wheel house, so I’ve really gotten quite an education and I have a new appreciation for this business, because these girls are troopers.
Even though your girls are on TV, was it hard to see your baby get into the modeling world?
The hardest thing for me was letting somebody else take the reins. But Chris really made a point of making me feel comfortable and he’s done a great job so I just let him do his thing. Kendall has wanted to do this her entire life. I’m glad she’s found something that she’s passionate about and she’s so happy and grateful to be here.
Is it true the other models have been mean to Kendall?
I would like to set the record straight and say it’s 150 percent not true. They have been so welcoming, especially at the Tommy Hilfiger show. At all of the shows, all of the girls have been so darling. It’s like a sorority. It’s really amazing and heartwarming the way they’ve welcomed her into their world and treated her like a sister. I was with a lot of the girls out in New York one night, because Donna Karan had a dinner and the girls were so amazing to her. I remember walking away from the dinner and I thought, “That’s remarkable.” Tommy Hilfiger and I were having a laugh, because we were talking about press and how ugly rumors get started and how they are complete lies and fabrications and that is one of them. His whole team really treated her like gold.
Producer/author/manager Kris Jenner invites Giuliana Rancic into her home for an open and honest discussion about her life, including what it’s like to be the matriarch of one of Hollywood’s most famous families in “Beyond Candid with Giuliana: Kris Jenner.”
In the all-new, one-hour special, Kris speaks about the ups and downs of her first marriage, her greatest joys and one particular regret involving the killing of her best friend. Kris, who recently filed for divorce from husband Bruce Jenner, also sets the record straight on tabloid rumors during a little game of “Gospel or Gossip” with Giuliana. Plus, Giuliana gets a taste of a signature dish Kris’ family craves, which is featured in her new cookbook “In the Kitchen with Kris.”
The all-new “Beyond Candid with Giuliana: Kris Jenner” premieres Sunday, October 5th at 10pm ET/PT only on E!
“I love so hard. Like if I fall in love with you, whether it’s my girlfriends or my kids. The people in my life, I just love really hard.” – Kris Jenner
Kris on her only son, Robert: “It’s a delicious feeling, but I often get tortured by Kourtney, Kimberly and Khloé and Kendall and Kylie about it because they think I baby him. I treat him probably like he’s a lot younger than he is, and I worry about all sorts of decisions he needs to make for the day. It’s like ‘what do you need? Are you OK?’ I’m always worried about him.”
Kris on OJ Simpson and Nicole Brown Simpson: “They had gotten through so much together, but it was like, they couldn’t live with each other and they couldn’t live without each other, so it was that very volatile relationship at times.”
Kris getting emotional while talking about learning her first husband, Robert Kardashian, was dying of cancer: “Probably the worst thing I’ve ever been through, and to watch my kids have to suffer through. It was a horrible, horrible experience. And I think that we all, you know, I’m sorry. It still stings so bad, like it’s so fresh.”
Kris on criticism she’s not a good mother: “It’s so funny. It’s like give people a computer keyboard and they can say anything they want. And as hurtful as it might be, nobody knows what’s going on.”
Kris on false stories about her family: “I’ve realized at some point you can’t control what ignorant, nasty people are going to say about a family really they know nothing about personally. And 99.9% of the stuff that’s printed is absolute lies.”

Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner are moving on to the next chapter in their relationship.
Kris has filed for divorce, 11 months after the Keeping Up WIth the Kardashians stars revealed that they had separated. On Tuesday, Bruce Jenner responded with his own, nearly identical filing.
According to court documents filed Sept. 22 in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by E! News, Kris cited the ever-standard irreconcilable differences as the reason for the breakup. She requested joint custody of 17-year-old daughter Kylie Jenner, the only minor left in the Kardashian-Jenner brood. She listed their date of separation as June 1, 2013.
This comes 11 months after Kris, 58, and Bruce, 64, announced they had separated and were “much happier” living apart, telling E! News, “We will always have much love and respect for each other. Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority.”
The still-friendly duo marked their 23rd wedding anniversary on April 21 and continued to spend a lot of time together post-split, with Bruce being based in Malibu instead of at the Jenner family homestead in Calabasas, Calif. “Happy Anniversary to one of the most amazing men I know!!!!” Kris wrote to Bruce at the time.
