Kim Kardashian goes from salad to perfume

Unlike some previous video appearances, Kim Kardashian shows only a little skin in this ad for her line of perfume. Kardashian was reportedly an active contributor to the look and scent of her perfume, and wrote on her Web site that "the Old Hollywood theme with a modern twist is a perfect fit for my fragrance." Which is ironic, because Golden Age glamour represents an era when being famous meant being good at something besides having well-connected parents. Personal vitriol aside, her ad, while pretty, isn't any more effective than Liz Taylor's perfume ads have been over the years. But let's be fair to Kim. Her Carl's Jr. work was groundbreaking.
