It should be noted that Baroness Audrey- a former fashion model & Givenchy favorite- was quite proud of the fact that (her pregnancies excepted) she never weighed more than 106 pounds.

Quite a few threads lately on Raleigh's, roadster's and of course celeb's. So I think its appropriate to see Elvis sporting the 'hound dog bike' (1959):

Oy! I almost wonder if the 'mechanic' did that intentionally, by way of wry commentary.

I thought the same thing, but note there is still a bit to the bottom of the pedal stroke. He does not look comfortable on the bike though, arms almost locked... As to attire... The cropped sleeve t-shirt is not helping. Where is Mr. Blackwell?

I'm sure her publicist thought it up. Better scrub that saddle before it goes back to the rental agency.

I think you'd be hard pressed to find anything related to that clan that wasn't... The cans in the basket are quite likely 'placed' products; the bike itself is most likely a prop brought in by the photographer.

Agreed- anyone who loved bikes wouldn't have allowed something like that. Nor put tires on with the valve stems all crooked.

Not to mention the presence of those reflectors on such a vintage looking machine. They just look out of place here.

I've got to hand it to the photographer, though. That is just about the most tasteful and dignified photo of a Kardashian I've ever seen (whichever Kardashian that might be there).

I guess a bicycle just makes everything a little bit better.
