Kim Kardashian’s latest fragrance launch went awry when a woman threw white powder (later determined to be flour) all over her as she arrived at the London Hotel West Hollywood. Kim, shown in photo covered in the flour, was a trouper, though. She declined to press charges, changed clothes and went on with the launch party for her new True Reflection scent. [CBS]

When ‘The Hunger Games’ star Jennifer Lawrence went on ‘The Late Show With David Letterman’ on Tuesday and said she looked like a troll, she protesteth too much, says my colleague Alexandra Le Tellier. While some commentators found it refreshing, LeTellier points out that ‘when someone as beautiful and talented as Lawrence admits her insecurities ... it fuels a culture of insecurity along with self-destructive ‘pro ana’ sites and ‘Am I ugly?’ videos.’ [Los Angeles Times]


Lawrence’s costar in ‘The Hunger Games’ Elizabeth Banks, above, was among celebrities who attended Restoration Hardware’s party Thursday night celebrating EXPOSED, the company’s spring collection of home furnishings at the Los Angeles store. Banks looked notably sleeker than Effie Trinket, the character she plays in the film, below, both in dress and hairstyle. Other stars at the event included Malin Akerman, Abbie Cornish and Milla Jovovich. [Society News LA]
