Your morning fashion and beauty report: Kardashians, Barry Bonds and Prince William

March 31, 2011 |  8:55 am

Kim Kardashian We've got news. Really big news. About the Kardashians. Perhaps you believe their lives are easier than yours. Or better. Perhaps you believe they have greater opportunities than most mere mortals. Perhaps you believe they spend much of their time shopping and partying. Well, you'd be wrong. Kris Jenner, their mom, wants us to know that they work "25 hours a day." In the May issue of Redbook, she explained: "Well, first of all, all of my daughters have jobs. They are fashion stylists and designers; they own a chain of stores. ... And my kids worked from the time they were 13 years old. ... They work 25 hours a day." Now you know. Perhaps you should get back to work? [Stylelist]

Really? Yes, really. WWD has declared Barry Bonds its man of the week. "Despite the stress of his perjury trial for steroid use, baseball's home run leader makes the right sartorial choices for a man his size -- regardless of how he got there." [WWD]

Intrigued by trials and lawsuits? Well, Patrice Lataillade, former chief operating officer of Marc Jacobs, has filed a suit against company President Robert Duffy. Lataillade is alleging that Duffy made employees pole dance and look at porn. [The Cut]

If you can't get enough of up-and-coming fashion talent, you might want to check out WATCH-THAT-LABEL.COM. The new e-commerce site, which will be  "sales platform" for the up-and-comers, launches Thursday. [Vogue UK]

Need a daily dose of the royals? Prince William, apparently, won't wear a wedding band. Kate Middleton? Yes. [People]

And finally: First, it was Rachel Zoe. Now it's Brad Goreski with his own show on Bravo. Its title? "It's a Brad World," of course. [The Cut]
