Who is Kelly?


If your on Twitter & waking up thinking 'Who is Kelly?' Well if you didn't know the Urban Decay Naked 2 eye shadow palette was released at midnight on Friday exclusively at Debenhams and what hysteria it caused last night! It was a case of fastest finger first to click and order and poor 'Kelly' apparently got so excited about getting the Naked 2 that she had an asthma attack! Yes you read right, an asthma attack over an eye shadow, has the beauty world gone mad?! To be fair I nearly fainted too when I saw the price of the Naked 2 palette :P


So the next thing you know with the power of Beauty Bloggers and Social Media #prayforkelly became the UK top trending topic within minutes and a Facebook Group set up in Kelly's honor! So was it a PR Stunt? If so well done, it certainly got people talking, the Debenham's website crashing and the Naked 2 palette selling out super fast! And if you were wondering 'Kelly' was OK according to her friend Julie :)


Did you purchase the Naked 2?

  3. This is false! My pictures on Twitter show the original message on the Debenhams FB page, someone wrote to their friend on the wrong page and everyone asked where Kelly was.. http://pic.twitter.com/8XmdgzIt

  4. And it became a TT because a group of bloggers (me included) thought it was hilarious, and wondered if we could get it high. Debenhams/Urban Decay had nothing to do with it! (:

  5. And the storm continues! I was under the impression it was the same as what you guys are saying - 'Kelly' said she'd die if she didn't get Naked2, a separate 2nd girl had an asthma attack over buying it early & all the stress of Debenhams saying it wasn't, then it was available. Both sound as ridiculously dramatic as the other!
    But then people started saying Kelly was a PR stunt the whole time. Whatever the truth is, & I've read the comments & conversations, it has certainly kicked up a sufficient storm for a new release. I think everyone involved in the launch will be feeling pretty pleased with themselves.

  6. omg that's crazy!! and wow ive never had a naked palette and ive been lemming for a long time but never really got convinced to buy one cause of the price

  7. I think world has gone mad. To be honest I hardly ever use my Naked 1 because colors are too warm for me. Naked 2 has some cool colors so I would consider it but price puts me off. And I don't think Urban decay shadows are as good as beauty community makes them to be. These shadows are the only ones that dissapear off my crease during the day. Even £1 MUA shadow doesn't do that. Sorry to be so negative about it but I really think it's overrated. xxx

  8. I am kindly asking you to take this down or change the information as the girl who was having the asthma attack is 14 years old and is very upset at thinking every is taking the piss. As you can see from other comments the information in your post is incorrect anyway. I really wouldn't want to cause her more upset by reading this post. Thank you.

  9. I know what you mean about the price of the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. When I bought the first one it was around £25, which has since gone up to over £30. I definitely won't be buying the Naked 2 palette, 1. because of the price and 2. because I hardly use my original Naked palette, would seem a complete waste to buy another one lol xx

  10. it's interesting to see that you're leaving this up to gain follers and views instead of taking it down to stop a poor girl crying her heart out. i've lost a ridiculous amount of respect for you

  11. Kelly wasn't the girl who had an asthma attack as Emma notes above, Julie was someone who wrote on the debenhams fb page when everything was going on like the link being posted early and she wrote 'Kelly u ok, come online.' I think cause us beauty bloggers were all a bit hyper and bored we found this hilarious and decided to set up a facebook group and get it trending as JLS,1D and Bieber fans always have stupid TT's such as PrayforJustin PrayforAston etc.

    It was all a joke and Kelly may not even be a real person. I do feel sorry for the 14 year old girl who had the asthma attack as she thought it was about her when it wasn't. Also just to clarify yes Debenhams did get involved at the end saying they would pray for Kelly,but this was all down to a group of beauty bloggers (myself included) no PR stunts, Urban Decay weren't involved and it again was just some harmless fun. Sorry if anyone did get offended by it, but I assure it was not about an actual person!

  12. This is horrible that poor 14 year old is ill .. And the shock that her mothers bank details would be at risk ! Is just being laughed and mokked at .. Sorry but that is just sad ... I am with the other " anonymous " commenter ... I have lost ALOT of respect for you and ... I would highly appreciate if you either edit your post or just remove it :@ ....

  13. from that spelling i know who anon is and i know she blamed me for the whole thing. i came in half way thru the kelly thing so why she decided to blame me i dont know but from her twitter shes an attention seeker so its best to ignore the silly girl. i doubt shes 14 or even had an asthma attack as you cannot type while having one, i should know, i have asthma.

    its been pointed out loads now kelly isnt asthma girl, she needs to get over it and move the heck on now

  14. It wasn't a PR stunt, it started trending by the beauty bloggers/#bbloggers

    #prayforkelly was a harmless, non malicious joke about a woman who posted "Are you ok, Kelly?" on the wrong wall. The reason people found this funny is because it was posted at the time everyone was being hysterical because payments were not processing etc..

    The girl who had an asthma attack has NOTHING to do with the #prayforkelly joke, she was upset because a few people said the link she clicked to buy Naked2 might have been false/a scam and she used her mothers bank card.

    It's all a harmless joke and was not aimed at anyone, the content of your blog post is wrong. I think you should change or delete this before the girl who had the attack becomes upset any further.

  15. Let's be honest here, no one for a minute expected #prayforkelly to actually trend. It was a joke that lots of people made at the same time. I honestly don't see how it's malicious in any way at all. Th girl who had an asthma attack is a separate incident that just happened simultaneously.

  16. Lisa sums this up really well; definitely NOT a PR stunt and it wasn't really meant to go so far as it did! Now being blown too far out of proportion and twisted.

  19. Definitely not a PR stunt! A lot of us were finding some girls "kelly are you ok? come online xxx" comment amusing and so a FB group was set up (just for the lol's) and it was there that someone suggested we try to get it trending.
    Would be a good idea to maybe modify the incorrect information in this post, just take a look at the link Milkteef has left you.
