Dubai: Calling all UAE developers. It's time to put that call into the Kardashians, because the family's most famous member, Kim, is open to opening up a themed hotel in Dubai.
"I've gotten a couple of offers to do that," said the 34-year-old reality star and businesswoman dressed in an all-black ensemble. "It will be so much fun to do a Kardashian Hotel with my sisters. It's not in the works but it should be something we should think about."
Kardashian was in Dubai on Monday night at the opening of Parfum Monde on Shaikh Zayed Road, to launch her seventh fragrance, Fleur Fatale. She's been travelling around the world with it, recently stopping by in Australia. A scheduled trip to India last week was cancelled due to visa issues.
The cancellation, she said, was 'the pit' of the entire trip, referring to a family tradition where they discuss the peaks, their best part of the day, and the pits, their worst.
Kardashian was scheduled to appear on hit reality show 'Bigg Boss', India's version of the 'Big Brother' series. "I was so disappointed it didn't happen. We're rescheduling that so hopefully I'll be able to go there soon," she said.
But, she added, the rest of her trip has been 'the peaks', especially getting to meet her friends who live here.
"This isn't my first time here but every time I come, I feel more and more welcomed," she said of Dubai. "I love it here and I can't wait to come back."
Fleur Fatale, she said, was inspired by her pregnancy.
"Every fragrance that I make has been inspired by something that I'm going through," she explained to an enraptured audience. "I usually like strong fragrances, but when I was pregnant, I couldn't stand strong smells. I was turned off by a lot of scents and I became really picky. Then, when I had the baby, I was sent a lot of flowers, especially roses. So I became obsessed with the smell and I would look for the scent everywhere, in skincare...hair care. That's how we developed it."
Kardashian gave birth to North, her daughter with rapper Kanye West, in June last year.
"I really miss her. I wanted to bring her with me but because it was so much work, I didn't think it was fair for her to do all that travelling. So she's at home bonding with her dad," she said.
After announcing her arrival in Dubai on Friday, Kardashian headed to Abu Dhabi on Sunday night, where she hosted a “celebrity bash” at a pop-up club organised by VIP Room Dubai. French Montana, the rumoured boyfriend of her sister Khloe, was one of the performers.
Following her perfume launch, Kardashian arrived at Toko, a Japanese restaurant in Downtown Dubai. There was just enough time for a quick make-up touch-up. She only spoke on the red carpet to answer a question about what she was wearing – Balmain top, Alexander McQueen pants.
The reality star and her entourage sat in the garden and were soon joined by Montana and 'Fast and Furious' star Tyrese Gibson. The restaurant was fully booked for the night, with a Dh500 "Kim Kardashian menu" on offer.
Her bouncers surrounded her table, asking guests not to take pictures.
