Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian may not have cameos in the new Absolutely Fabulous movie, but they did influence a big part of the film: the fashion!
Ab Fab costume designer Rebecca Hale recently revealed she was inspired by an old episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s which featured talk of Khloe’s camel toe, or « camel hoof » as the Brits say.
« Yet again, that was something that Khloe Kardashian talked about, » Hale told Fashionista.com. « There was a part where they were talking about a flabby camel hoof and that’s just the kind of thing that Edina [played by Jennifer Saunders] would think about. » LOL!
Hale added she had a specific goal for Edina’s costumes: ‘’the trousers will always have a camel hoof. » « We were thinking of building a fourth camel hoof and then I thought, ‘That’s just too disgusting really,' » Hale laughed. « It’s just not a good look. »
KUWTK fans will remember Khloe has talked about that specific part of her body many times.
« I’ve learned my lesson a million times. I wear Spanx so I don’t get a camel toe! » Khloe’s said in the past. « My camel toe is a gift from me to you. That is just what God gave me! »
As for Kim, her famous curves also inspired a hashtag and emoji look worn by the character Bubble in Absolutely Fabulous. « Last year, there seemed to be a permanent obsession [with Kim’s] bottom, » Hale explained. « So I thought, ‘let’s put a really big bum into a costume somewhere.' »
Last month, Saunders shot down rumors that Kim had one of the many celebrity cameos in the film. « I don’t know who put the rumor out but it was never a fact, » Saunders told E! News. « It’s not like [Kim] was on the phone going, ‘But I want to be in it. I want to do it.' »
