What Would Kourtney Do? Puhleaze Redbook!



Oh Redbook. I like the Kardashians as much as the next person but whether you love ’em or hate ’em, the “What Would Kourtney Kardashian Do?” piece on page 40 of the January issue gives me pause. Really? We need to ask Kourt what she would do?


To be honest, the article really should be titled, “What Would Kourtney Wear?” since it gives three life situations and asks the reader what Kourtney K would wear in such a conundrum!


First up the playdate, though Kourtney is holding her son so I assume the playdate is for him, not for her.


Next up is the party. Though we don’t get any dress code for the type of party she will be attending. And finally, it’s posh, which the last I looked isn’t really a destination, but in fact, simply just a way of dressing when you want to look elegant and classy apparently.


Kourt rocks a legging, blazer and boots ensemble (playdate), a mini skirt and ruffled top (party) and a fur (faux I hope) bolero jacket, dress and knee-high leather boots for the posh look.


Text below her looks gives style examples and outfits readers can put together to achieve all three looks. But really, of all the beautiful stylish women out there, some of whom’s actual job it is to style women (hello Rachel Zoe), why should we ask Kourtney Kardashian?


No idea.


So instead I’ve thought up a few other things we could ask “What Would Kourtney Do?”


1. What would Kourtney do if her live-in boyfriend and father of her child acted like a complete douche, drank too much and picked fights with her family?


2. What would Kourtney do if one of her sisters needed her support after her ridiculously short failed marriage (72 days)?


3. What would Kourtney do if her teen sisters swiped Dad’s credit card and went on a shopping spree? What advice would she give them?



Wouldn’t you rather know what Kourtney would do in those situations? Me too! Maybe next time Redbook!
