SA keeps up with the Kardashians

2010-12-19 10:29

Fans of reality ­television star Kim Kardashian were treated to a rare sight of their favourite personality at a series of by-invite-only parties this week.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star jetted into the country on Wednesday afternoon with her outspoken and equally adored sister, Khloe.

The sisters were in town to promote the new Brutal Fruit flavour, Cheeky Cranberry, for which Kardashian is an ambassador.

They began their visit with a private dinner with 20 local female celebrities and media at a posh ­restaurant in Melrose Arch, Johannesburg.

Guests included Bonang Matheba, Bridget Masinga, Heat magazine editor-in- chief Melinda Shaw and True Love editor Sbu Mpungose.

At the dinner the sisters were relaxed and talked about their family.

A more recognisable sight for those who watch their show was of the sisters constantly looking at their cellphones and updating fans about their whereabouts.

Despite the 18-hour flight, the sisters looked glamorous, thanks to their personal make-up artist, who came along with them.

They also kept up their usual trendy style in black mini dresses, with Khloe sporting the latest fashion must-wear, a faux-fur stole.

“I never wear real fur. I don’t even know what it feels like to wear it. Why wear it when you can have one that feels like it?” she said.

Kim tweeted yesterday ­afternoon: “South Africa is totally tubular! Cowabunga!!!!!”

A few hours earlier, her followers on Twitter would have got the message: “Good morning Cape Town! Such a beautiful place to wake up in! The view is unreal!”
