Kim Kardashian Has a $5k Booty Tailor; Donatella Versace Gifts Couture Crystal Headpiece to Lady Gaga

And Norway’s curling team debuts Sochi uniforms.

Kim Kardashian Has a $5k-a-Day “Booty Tailor”: Now we know why Kim Kardashian takes so many "butt selfies." The reality TV star apparently dishes out a whopping $5,000 a day for an on-call "booty tailor." Cornelius Clay, a 23-year-old Yale dropout, is the man behind the precise tailoring for Kim’s curvy bottom half. Kanye West swept up Clay to be his creative consultant after a chance meeting when Clay was only 19—and he's been on-call every since. “It means Kim can buy jeans, have them altered and be photographed in them winthin a matter of hours,” a source revealed. After all, one can’t expect off-the-rack clothing to be a perfectly snug fit for a size four waist with a size ten behind. [Daily Mail]

Donatella Versace Gifts Couture Headpiece to Lady Gaga: While we all thought Kim had “friends in fashion places,” she will never top Lady Gaga. As a close friend of Donatella Versace—and the current face of the fashion house—the international pop star was allowed to borrow a one-of-a-kind, crystal-adorned mesh hood that made its way down the Atelier Versace runway to wear to the brand's post-show dinner on Sunday night. Luckily for Gaga, Donatella must have thought it looked so perfect on the songstress that she allowed her to keep it. [Vogue UK]

Norway’s Curling Team Debuts Sochi Uniforms: This year, chevron stripes are in. The Norwegian men’s team competing at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi has outdone itself with a uniform clad in a zigzag pattern in the Norwegian flag colors of red, white, and blue. The team began sporting wildly printed uniforms in 2010 at the Vancouver Olympic Games with a new take on Harlequin pants, before moving on to a psychedelic print, and even houndstooth. [Cosmopolitan]
