A busy mother of four, Kim took her 19-year-old daughter on the sweepstakes'
trip that was part of the launch of L'eggs Silken Mist collection and its
tagline "Live More. Run Less." "Finding out I won was surreal! I was in
shock when I learned all the things we would get to do on the trip and having
my daughter with me made it extra special. I always prefer L'eggs and have
been wearing them for a long time. They always make my legs look great and I
love their new styles," she said.
Kim entered the sweepstakes on the last day and beat the odds against more
than 100,000 entries in the sweepstakes. "We're so thrilled that this
mother-and-daughter team got to enjoy this fantastic New York experience
together on behalf of L'eggs hosiery," said Angela Hawkins, general manager of
legwear at HanesBrands, which owns the L'eggs brand.
Phillip Bloch, stylist to the stars, accompanied Kim and her daughter,
Katelyn, to select stores for her wardrobe spree. "We worked with proven
insider fashion secrets and the latest trends to make Kim not only look great
but to feel her personal best ever. With this L'eggs shopping spree, I had
the chance to show Kim that you don't have to be a movie star to look and feel
like a million bucks," Bloch said. The winner couldn't wait to meet the
professional stylist. "I never really have time to shop for clothes, let alone
have extra funds to spend on 'me,' " she said. "Having a celebrity stylist
help me out was amazing!"
The winner's head-to-toe makeover included clothes, legwear and other
accessories hand-picked with help from Phillip and a haircut and makeup
session spearheaded by April Barton at her Suite 303 salon.
